The Name Game!

Yeah! We have finally decided on a name for our little girl.

Aubree Mae Enlow

My Nanny's middle name was Mae and Jon and I both like the name Aubree. Since I offically came up with it, he was in charge of the spelling. We absolutely LOVE it and we can't wait to meet our darling Aubree Mae in April!

Half Way There! - 20 Weeks

This past Tuesday marked the half way point in my pregnancy! I'm so excited to be one week closer to meeting our precious baby girl! I had my doctors appointment on Friday and as always I had to wait a while! It was Friday the 13th and by the time I got in to see the doctor, she had just returned from delivering two babies and had three more women that would deliver that night! My doctor is absolutely WONDERFUL so I don't mind waiting for her! They checked my weight and I made sure that she measured my belly. It seems that all of a sudden my belly has "blossomed" and I feel so much bigger! I've been getting a lot more comments about it. Dr. Oliveria assured me that I had gained the perfect amount of weight and that my belly was measuring exactly as it should. She said "you're just short so there's not really anywhere else for her to go but out!" I just can't wait to see what this belly looks like around 35 weeks, ha! Joy! My favorite part of every appointment is getting to hear our sweet baby's heartbeat on the doppler machine. Dr. Oliveria put the wand on my stomach and there it was, loud and clear. She said, "Now that is a happy, healthy baby!"

From what I can tell, baby girl is resting very LOW in my stomach. On all my sonograms and when they use the doppler she seems very low, maybe an inch or so below my belly button. I guess this explains why the restroom is now my second home! I think I set a record a few nights ago by going 5 times from the time I went to bed until the time I got up! I told a friend at school that I was going to put my name on the restroom door and start having class in there!

I've also been eating A LOT these last couple of weeks. Jon on the other hand has decided to go on a diet. He has lost almost 15 pounds in 3 weeks. I am so proud of him! We went to Snuffers last week and when they brought our food the waitress tried to give me the salad and Jon the bacon cheeseburger. I said "Oh no, that massive burger is mine, he'll take the salad." I've also gone through an eight pound bag of grapefruits in about a week and a half! Yum!

Finally, we have decided on a name for our little one! We are however still working on the spelling so as soon as we get that part down, a post will be coming! Stay tuned!

20 Weeks-Half Way!!!

Panther Football and 19 Weeks!

Last Friday night was VERY exciting! The VA Panthers won their last regular season game, clenching the title of district champs! They had the perfect season, 10-0. Those of you born and raised around Texas high school football know what a big deal this is! The boys worked so hard as did all the coaches. My parents and Jon's parents made it out to the big game to help cheer on the team. We had a great time visiting and watching some great football! Their first playoff game is this Friday against Celina. We're hoping for another win!!!

In baby news, I am 19 weeks today. I have been feeling great, but getting LARGER by the day! My 4 inch mid-section seems to be growing straight OUT! A stranger asked me for the first time this week when I was due. It's good to know that at least I'm looking pregnant now and not just fat! Jon and I are still going back and forth on names. We have a few front runners and we hope to decide soon. Calling our little girl "Baby MonJon" just doesn't seem as appropriate now that we know its a girl. We welcome any ideas for names anyone has heard lately :)

My Canton trip with my mom and sister was very successful. I found baby girl some cute camo and pink shoes as well as some headbands. We are going to "Neath the Wreath" this weekend to hopefully find some more goodies! Below are a few pictures from the last few weeks.

Brady and Jon at Brady's Graduation party in Wichita Fallas. Congrats Brady! We are so very proud of you and all your accomplishments! Is it just me or do Jon and Brady look alike here?! :)

19 Weeks! Almost half way there!
