She has something in common with me!

Okay so during this whole pregnancy I've been craving and loving foods I don't usually like but Lance does...for example...Meat anything!! I always want a steak! I love Hot Dogs! I ate more wings in my 1st trimester than I did my whole life combined! lol hot and spicy foods always yummy! ( heartburn not so much but sometimes totally worth it!)  I like in cows milk like drinking a cup of weird! So basically Kensley is just like her Daddy!! Thankfully I can still eat food I love like Salad and Veggies and Fruits but this Girl craves Daddy's food! lol well Tonight something happened that was totally awesome!!

We were listening to some new country songs that I really like!! I was showing them to Lance on You Tube we starting listening to the top itunes list too and what not and Kensley started freaking out in my belly!!! tons of kicks and moving around like crazy!! Finally Lance said okay I want to feel and he put his hand on my belly where she had been kicking and sure enough Little girl started freaking out again and Daddy got to feel sweet Kensley kicking and moving like crazy! seriously the most active she has been so far! as I'm typing this us she is kicking and moving still!! I LOVE IT!!!! I can't help but get teary eyes as I think about how I've waited for what seems like forever to know how this feels! to feel life in you! to Feel my baby My sweet Daughter move inside of me! It really is the best feeling ever and I can't wait for all my friends to have this moment!!  Its moments like these that make me want time to go by slower so I can soak it all up and enjoy it! I can't believe I am 6 months preggers already I am so excited to meet this little Girl but I also want to enjoy every moment since who knows if I will have another pregnancy or how long it will be before I get to experience this a second time! So I'm soaking it up and Loving that Kensley loves Country Music Just like her Mama!! <- thats me:)

New Chapter

I heard this song and feel in love with it. I think of my sweetheart when I heard it.  I found a video with this song with pictures of infertility on you tube as well and it was beautiful. I haven't been posting much on my blog lately and a lot of it has to do with me not knowing what to say. I don't want to make this blog all about baby stuff but I also know that I've always made this blog about my life and that means talking about my pregnancy and baby things. However I have been scared to talk to much about it because I know how it feels to read those blogs and wonder when it will be my own turn. I realize that when my friends have gotten pregnant after infertility I've been over joyed for them and it wasn't difficult for me to be excited for them because I knew it was a long road for them. Its harder for me when its a stranger or coming from someone who has no problem or thinks the fact they tried for 3 months before they got pregnant  is difficult. So I'm hoping all you wonderful readers know I am so excited to have this baby Girl but my heart still breaks for those who are waiting for their miracle. Honestly I would love nothing more than to see my friends dreams comes true! Words can't express the heartache's that come from Infertility and I feel so blessed and so happy to be where I am right now.

I am now 24 weeks aka 6 months pregnant with our sweet daughter who we have named

Kensley Noel

We have both really loved the name Lance especially has loved the name Kensley and Noel is Lance's Grandmothers maiden name. We are fans of family names :) I told Lance how funny it is that we love the middle name Noel and have for a while and knew we wanted to use it before we got preggers but I laugh now because this little one was conceived during Christmas break...maybe its just me but I find that really funny!

Here is my 23 weeks baby bump. I haven't taken my 24 weeks picture yet that will be most likely tonight when hubby gets home from school. I am feeling great most of the time as long as I don't get to hot...when that happens I get super nauseous and yucky feeling and almost like i'm going to pass out. I have noticed I get hot very easy since I've been pregnant so I've had to really be aware of how i'm feeling since I have passed out a couple of times before ( not fun very scary!) Kensley is growing strong and measuring just like she should be :)  My next appointment is my Glucose test not looking forward to that since everyone I've talked to about it has said how nasty it tastes. I'm  not a fan of super sweet stuff especially since I've been pregnant so it will be interesting. I still can't believe I am 6 months pregnant! 3 more months to go! where did the time go!?
 Life is going great! Lance is in his 3rd trimester of Chiropractic school and has 7 to go :) I am so proud of him and how well he is doing! It amazes me how much he already knows! He has his first adjusting classed this Tri so I'm loving being his guinea pig!

I'm In love

I couldn't figure out which photo was the best so here is all 3!
We set up our crib the Saturday before Mother's Day and I am so glad! I love just going in there and looking in the crib just picture what it will be like when Baby Girl is sleeping in it! I am so grateful for Stephanie who gave me this crib bedding! I LOVE IT! Its seriously perfect! I still have a lot to do in her room since its our catch all craft room / nursery right now lol but I got plenty of time before she makes her arrival. I'm still in a daze when I think about how far along I am..  23 weeks already! its crazy! I love it! I am so excited to see her and to hold her and see who she looks like! I'm just so HAPPY!

5 Years

May 18Th 2007 was the best day of my life! It was the day I married My sweetheart and Best Friend! 5 Years! Its been 5 Years! Its amazing how life changes in just a few years! If you had told me 5 Years ago that We would be living in Texas Lance going to Chiropractic school and Me pregnant with our Rainbow Baby I would have laughed and thought oh okay crazy! I would have laughed because the 19 year old me had it all figured out Lance and I were going to Tucson so Lance could go to medical school at UofA and become a Doctor and then I was gonna have babies! in 5 years I'd say I would have had 2 babies at least and hopefully one on the way since we wanted to do the whole 4 in 4..4 kids in 4 years thing. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Yeah those plans didn't turned out at all! Instead in the 5 years we have been married we have lived in Holbrook, Tucson, Mesa, Maricopa, and Addison TX. We bought a house, we sold a house. We have been enrolled between the two of us at Pima Community College, U of A, Westwood College, Grand Canyon University, and finally Parker University. We have been to Canada, Mexico, Italy, England, and Spain thanks to Carnival Cruises and not having babies. Should I have my degree by now since I've had 5 years to get it done before baby comes...yeah but ya know what I wouldn't change anything about these 5 years! I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who knows exactly what I need and who has blessed us beyond anything we deserve! I am grateful that this year I wasn't thinking ( okay maybe by next anniversary I'll be pregnant or have a baby)  I am grateful to have Lance he is seriously the most amazing husband I could have ever asked for! Everyday he amazes me with how awesome he is. He is so caring and loving towards me and seriously treats me like a Queen even when I don't deserve it! I love him so much its ridiculous!

I am grateful for the compassion I've learned with having to deal with infertility and losing a pregnancy. It has forever Changed me I am not the same person I was 5 years ago and I am so excited to be a Mommy and not just any Mommy But the Mommy of this little miracle that is growing inside of me. I feel so honored and blessed that I will get to have her as my Daughter I love her so much already. She is so blessed to have the Lance as her Dad! He is seriously the greatest Man I know! I am so blessed to have him as my husband and that I get to spend Eternity with him :) I'm crazy about this Man. Always have Always Will!.
