Being Positive This Time

My last post was meant to be kind of funny but as I read through it today I realized it sounds like I'm actually complaining that much. I probably really was that day. No, I don't love being pregnant but it's not awful. After experiencing so many changes in my body to make this baby happen it hits me how much of a miracle it really is and how God really knew what he was doing in creating our bodies to be capable of this. It's amazing! Plus, there are some fun things about upcoming motherhood. And right now it's the only thing that's happening thus the only thing to blog about... I'm so sorry world. I've already become the type of blogger I hate that goes on and on about baby and nothing else. I PROMISE I'll talk about something other than that when there is something going on. I can't even explain to you how boring life has been. Hopefully things will look up soon. They're not bad, just boring. Anyway, back to talking about pregnancy and nothing else, here are the exciting things about it.
First, a better belly picture. This was taken a few weeks ago so I've since gotten bigger but here you are:
I'm a horrible person and totally forgot how far along I am. I thought I was 19 weeks today but something makes me think I got off a little and might be 20. Either way, I'm about halfway done!!

Second, my awesome mom has made it a tradition to buy the crib for her kids when they're about to have their first child. So yesterday she ordered this little beauty:
It's gorgeous and was on a blowout sale so she got it for about $200 less than normal. I can't wait to get it and have a place to set it up!

Third, I've bought a few things for our baby girl. Since we're not absolutely sure it's a girl (I'm just assuming it is unless someone tells us otherwise) I've kept all the receipts but it's impossible to pass the baby section these days and not get something. Here's a couple of the things I couldn't say no to:

Pink isn't as painful as I thought, especially if it has monkeys on it! Either way, it gets me excited and thinking of a newborn, wrinkly body in those tiny clothes makes me cry :)

Life has been great. And I just remembered something in other news I could write about! I got my diploma in the mail the other day. It's only an associates for now but it's so fun to finally have something to show for my hard work. And I graduated with high honors and it says that across the diploma. Cory was so proud of me, he kept bringing it up. He's the best person in the world. I love that man more than anything. I asked him to surprise me for Valentines Day since it'll be our last one alone. I'll keep you posted on what he came up with. I can't wait to find out! Anyway, there's a more positive update. Sorry about the whining earlier.
