Happy Monday! This weekend we got a little crazy and decided to paint the interior of the casa! It was beige overload and we were over it! The color? "Bunker" blue since it literally was the wall color at the fabulous beach house we stayed at last Varn family beach week. Since I'm a terrible roller, Nate did the majority of the work (I was in charge of taping and edging) and I took D to the mall for a Mommy/Son date! He got to ride the "choo choo" and eat lunch in the food court- he's growing up so fast!

How far along: 20 Weeks!
Size of baby: Banana!
Baby weight: Still at +7 lbs from first weigh in
Showing?: Oh yes, we have a fo' real bump!
Maternity Clothes: Nope...I am determined to make my wardrobe work for as long as possible!
Stretch marks: Nope, but everything is starting to expand...
Movement: Oh yes! We felt our first official kick at 18 weeks (D was at 21 weeks). Although VERY little it was still great to feel lil bits! Since, lil bits starts wiggling around 9pm every night - once big brother is asleep!
Gender: BOY!!! Daven is going to have a little brother!
Belly button in/out: In!
Morning sickness: Pretty much gone...some days I feel nauseous and some days I have terrible headaches, but for the most part we're good!
Cravings: Sweets...Grady hates 'em, but I love 'em!
Exercise: Walking and lifting weights when I have the energy. We try to walk 4-5 days a week because I have GOT to get out of the house as does D. It's deathly hot down here so it's definitely harder to find the time to walk, but we are making it work!
Energy: Comes and goes. Some days I'm bouncing off the walls and others...I'm just a big pregnant mush!
What I miss: Sleep!! Grady only likes it when I lay on my left side...I'm a right side sleeper! Plus I've had terrible dreams this pregnancy...nothing bad, just constant!
What I won't miss: Lack of energy, but then again will I ever get that back?!
What I'm looking forward to: Finishing up Grady's room and all of our travels! D and I start our whirlwind summer in a month as we travel to Virginia!
Best Moment: Feeling lil bits moving and grooving...knowing he is healthy...and finding out we're having another little boy!!

So let's hope these actually posts unlike every other phone dump attempt!
Our weekend was fun and relaxing! We ventured to Casey Key for Father's Day because we had heard how beautiful it was...and it did not disappoint! Gorgeous homes, clear turquoise blue water and very family friendly! A nice weekend spent with my beautiful family- abundantly blessed!

Happy Fathers Day to the best three men I know!!
Thanks Dad for being the first man I loved, teaching me about the good and hard lessons in life, and raising me to be the woman that I am! You truly have been such an inspirational role model in my short 27 years of life...I can only imagine how much more I have to learn from you! Thank you for being a wonderful Grandfather to Daven - your unconditional love for him radiates through each phone call, hug, and kiss you give to him! I can't wait for the day he can actually join you on a fishing trip or golf outing...I would LOVE to be a fly on that boat/golf bag!
Thank you Sweet Dad-in-law for blessing me with your amazing son and being such an amazing role model to him! He definitely embodies you in the way he loves his family, faith, and general outlook on life. You have passed many great qualities and life lesson's on to him and I am so thankful for that. Thank you for also being such an amazing grandfather to Daven. He is lucky to have you in his life to teach him the ropes, play with him constantly, and love him so deeply!
And to my amazing husband- thank you for being a great father. You are so kind, patient, loving, and godly and that is exemplified each day through your actions and words both to me and our son. Watching him watch you is so special as he truly looks up to you and takes in everything you teach him! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share in this wonderful experience of parenthood with you - I couldn't have asked for a better partner in crime! We love you more than you will ever know- happy Father's Day!
And...FINALLY I can post this epic video...I've been waiting 6 months for this day!!
