So we decided to change up the style just a little. Today we have some outside shots instead of our wall backdrop. It was so nice the other night we just had to go outside for a walk with the camera and tripod in tow. There are so many cool places to go for walks around our place. I went for a run/walk outside yesterday instead of the gym because it was just so beautiful. I passed a few ladies pushing baby’s in strollers and it made me so excited. I love going for walks and I can’t wait for the nights after the baby is born to go for family strolls with Kev. Or even this summer, I can’t wait for walks in the warm nights. They might be more like summer waddles, hehe but I want walks to be something that we continue to do. When our kiddo grows up I hope that is something they will remember -always going on family walks together at night. Is that silly?
I have had a few comments about baby names and well I hate to disappoint but that is something that we will not be sharing until after the baby is born. We will def. be spilling the beans next Thursday on the sex of the baby if everything goes well at the sonogram, but names we will be kept to ourselves. Everyone seems to have an opinion they need to share when you tell them names you like. So we just decided we will decide on the name we like and we will name our kid that and then when we introduce him/her to everyone no one will say anything mean about the name because then they are insulting the baby and not just the name. Besides we have some AWESOME names picked out. We haven’t narrowed it down yet but we have a few for each boy or girl.
I have become as round in front as I am from behind. hehe. These pictures make me laugh. Your dad can’t seem to stop rubbing my belly now talking to you. You seem to have just popped out a lot lately. When ever we are leaving each other he always kisses me goodbye and then rubs my belly and says goodbye to you as well. I had my very first person ask me if I was pregnant this week that didn’t know me. It was funny because I dont think I look all that pregnant most days but I was glad that she was at least so confident that I was and hadnt just put on a lot of weight that she would ask.
I also felt you a ton this week!! You have been break dancing like crazy!! and I havent even had to be laying down totally concentrating. I have been in the middle of doing things and I feel little kicks. It blows my mind everytime I feel it. I really just wish that your Dad could feel it as well. I know he feels left out. Soon enough. Just keep growing healthy and strong and I know he will feel you soon.
Did you know you grew fingerprints this week?? How crazy is that?? Last week you could have robbed a bank, but this week I am not so sure it would be a good idea. hehe. I cant wait till they print your little hands and feet when you come out and we can see how cute your little finger prints are.
You also got your first piece of mail this week. I got a package in the mail yesterday and it was addressed to: Baby Richardson (Kev’s last name- I never changed mine from Lula in case you were wondering) and the Return address said: Grammy. How cute is that? I like that my mom has decided that Grammy is going to be the name you call her.
This week has also been a very tough emotional week for me. There has been a lot of very sad, sad things going on at school this week and it just makes me nervous to bring you into this world and for you to become a teenager. I don’t want you to have to deal with such adult situtations at such a young age. It’s sad to me the state of our high schools now a days. I just hope that me and your dad can always have a very open and honest relationship with you, and that you will feel comfortable to come to us about things that may seem uncomfortable to talk about. I just want you to have such a happy life and I don’t want you to get bogged down with all the negative and bad in this world.
We love you more and more everyday little baby. You are already the joy in our lives.
Talk to you more next week.
