Sweet little Graves' baby!

So some of our besties found out that (drum roll please).......they're having a precious little girl! I for one CAN.NOT. wait to see this stinkin cutie! Big brother Gavin will be so wonderful with his little sis!

Holy shopping adventures- hey, i dont need an excuse to shop, but knowing a dear friend of mine is having a girl?! Yowza! Ill go ahead and apologize to the hubby now :/

I can't wait to find out if she will have a little girlfriend to get mani/pedis with or if there will be 2 Richardson boys competing for a date with her ;)

Baby Rich #2

Horrible blogger award, I know I know!

I turned 12 weeks yesterday :) Thia pregnancy has been a complete 180 from my pregnancy with Parker.  With P, I had a few headaches and was nauseous 2 times.  Thats it! I had such an easy pregnancy with him.  Lets just say that I have a whole new appreciation for women sick during pregnancy.  I'm not complaining nor would I change one bit of being nauseous daily with this baby!  In some ways, I feel blessed to experience two very different pregnancies :)

I've had two very big cravings so far with the little bean- chicken tacos (God bless you Rosas) and candy :/ I'm not a sweets eater and definitely not a candy eater, BUT here lately...I.MUST.HAVE.CANDY to keep me sane- haha! Jk- I have to have it to satisfy that baby (at least thats what I tell myself) ;)

I go back to the doctor November 26 for my 15 week appointment.  Hope that scale is kind to me because I will be THAT girl that devours Thanksgiving food and blames it on being pregnant! Why?!?! Because I can- duh! ;)

We should find out right before Christmas what the gender is!

Hope everyone had a GREAT Halloween and has the BEST holiday season this year with friends and family! I just love this time of year! Being pregnant during my favorite few months is pretty much awesome :)

BEYOND ready.......

So, I am 33 almost 34 weeks, and I am BEYOND ready for Parker to arrive! I can't wait to hold, him, but most importantly to just look at him and rejoice at how thankful I am =] The pregnancy journey- definitely took a toll on me at some points. I will have to admit that I had a fairly easy pregnancy with him though. There were probably 2 weeks out of the journey that were rough for me while the others were tolerable and for the most part pleasant.

I see some of my friends who are having it alot worse, but hey in the end it will all be worth it and we will all look back and not even think about the "hard times" but we will all look at how blessed we are =] I go back to the doctor in 2 weeks which I will be 35 1/2 weeks! I'm ready to hear if I will have a c-section or actually go through labor! I'm thinking c-section, but hey I'm not the one with M.D. at the end of my name!!!

What's new with me?????

* Officially can't sleep more than like 4 hours a night! Oh well, good preparation for what's to come =]

* No more fried food- indigestion BADDDDD!

* Have gained about 26 pounds, but I feel like I have gained 90!

* We are now in single digit weeks until our sweet baby boy arrives! May even be sooner than 8 weeks!!!

* Our house should be complete around October 1! Thank goodness- the last thing we are waiting on is the counter top installation...whoo-hoo!

* I have been told (more like "warned" to me) that Parker is going to be a "large" baby, but has now been changed to be will be "BIG." Which basically means it's looking like he will be 9+ pounds! Whew! Oh well, it will all be worth it when I get to hold my baby boy!

* Did not have "cravings" until about 2 weeks ago and now all I want is a cold sandwich or salad...yummo!

* Childbirth classes are a MUST! I love them...we only have two left and I am kinda sad =[

* BEYOND excited that one of my besties is pregnant! Although I am almost through my pregnancy, she and I will get to enjoy it together for about 2 months total then I will be there for her with whatever she needs! Her and Derek are going to be WONDERFUL parents =] I can't wait to find out what baby Graves will be- I'm going on record and saying GIRL, but who knows! This is going to be the best 9 months of her life- advice to you Rosie: enjoy it because it will FLY by!

* I go back to the doctor on September 16 and should have a better ETA for Parker! He might be earlier than Nov 2. if I have to have a c-section due to his size! I'll DEF. let y'all know!

Love you all =]

1 year to my wonderful hubby!

This past weekend Cody and I went to San Antonio to celebrate our one year anniversary! Time has flown by- seems like just yesterday I had those butterflies in my stomach about walking down the aisle! We left Saturday morning and headed for CABELA'S...yes, I must say that I love that store almost as much as my husband =] We got Parker some camo gear then headed to P.F. Changs...yummo! Starting at my 12th week of being pregnant, chinese food has sounded GROSS to I was very happy that I am able to stomach it and tolerate it now! Whoo-hoo =]

After lunch, we headed to Bass Pro Shop -again I love these two stores. My feet were killing me, so we decided to head to our hotel and lounge for a bit! When we got there, I was over lounging! Haha! I wanted to go walk and be "tourists". Well, that didn't last cuz it was that time for my hubby- what time you might ask? Beer time! We went to the Irish Pub right across from our hotel, and I got to people watch while Cody enjoyed his beers and cigar! Then we watched the game then off to bed we went! It was the perfect weekend =]

I love you very much and thank God everyday that I am blessed to be your wife!

3d ultrasound

Yesterday we went to have our 3d ultrasound done- and I was truly taken back by how they were able to do this! The process was a little overwhelming for me- broke out into a very bad sweat, which is not like me- I'm always cold! My nerves were really acting up! I was sooooo excited to be able to finally see our sweet baby boy! It brought tears to my eyes and (besides my wedding day) was the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! Seeing our little Parker moving around and being able to see his sweet face was the most amazing feeling that I think anyone can have or experience! He does have my lips (I think), but that is probably it! He will be a little Cody made over! =] All in all, the wait to finally have this done and the whole process were such a blessing! There was even a picture that they took of him smiling with his arms crossed around his chest! I love him more than I ever thought I could love something! Truly God is amazing, and I thank him everyday for what he has blessed my life with: amazing friends and family, a great husband, and a beautiful baby boy that we will meet in about 2 1/2 months! Yay!!!

13 more weeks!

I can't believe that in approximately 13 weeks my baby boy will be here! This journey at first seemed to be dragging along- I remember at first getting so antsy to get to my 18 week appt. to find out the sex and here I am now 13 weeks away from seeing this beautiful creation! I can't wait! Next week (28 weeks) I enter into my last trimester! I am soooo excited! Mwah!
