Bigger Bump Equals Bigger Spending :)

Derek and I just made our move back up to Northern California, the move was bittersweet, leaving Southern California made me sad but I also have lots of love for the Bay Area and will enjoy living in the area again. I miss my family, especially my little brother but it's nice to get to spend time with my in laws :)

My belly is getting bigger and bigger everyday, it's starting to point out and it's pretty weird looking at myself in the mirror and trying not to freak out over how huge I look! I'm a week away from the 3rd Trimester, just turned 25 weeks yesterday :) I finally got to do some maternity shopping the other day. I bought a couple of pairs of capris, tops, layering tanks and a cute long sleeve open sweater :) This past weekend my in laws came down to Southern California to visit us and help us move and while they were there we went to The Block at Orange and I bought some adorable baby onesies (I will post some pictures soon) and my wonderful mother in law and younger sister in law bought us a ridiculously adorable bathing suit and matching dress for our little girl :)) We also got some adorable bath towels and blanket from my other sister in law and her husband, we hadn't seen them for Christmas so we finally got to see the gift :) I'm loving all these little baby purchases and I can't wait to see what else we get along the way.

I'm still not sure when we'll be having my baby shower and I still haven't figured out when I will be taking my maternity pictures but I really need to get on that since time seems to be flying by.

Ohhh and of course how could I forget! We did our 3D/4D Ultrasound this last Saturday, my parents and little brothers were there and so were my in laws. Every time I get to see my little girl it is the most amazing feeling, but this time to get to see her in 4D was the best feeling ever. We did it at 24 weeks and they recommend you do it between 28 and 34 weeks to get the best pictures but I really didn't want to wait and I wanted my parents to be able to be there too and since we were moving that weekend it wouldn't have been possible. Here are some pictures :)

Our little girls face:) She's got my lips ;)

This was so precious she had her hand under her chin and the other hand at the back of her head, you can see her elbow.

It looks like she is shushing us with her finger over her lips.

It looks like she's giving us the thumbs up in this pictures, she's just posing away.

She's kicking her little foot to her head :)

We had a ton more pictures but it's pretty much more of the same just slightly different angles. I am so in love with her cute little face. I might be biased but I think she is sooo cute, I wish we could have waited longer, when she had more fat on her so we could get an even better look but I still think she's beautiful, she has my lips and it looks like she has a little button nose. I swear she was smiling the whole time, maybe it's just me but it looks like she can't stop smiling. The place we went to was really great, we got a DVD of the ultrasound and a CD with pictures and a ton of 3D/4D pictures printed out.

Well that's all the updating I have for now, enjoy :)
