There are 2 families in particular that I have been praying for over the last couple of weeks.
Bo and Marie Mechinus had their baby, Lyla, 11 weeks early. Both mom & daughter are doing superrrr great, but Marie has been discharged and they're reallyyyy missing their baby girl since she has to stay up at the hospital for a little while longer. I LOVE to read all of their updates about Lyla's progress and all the new things she's able to do everyday. Her sweet little smiles are presh! Even though most of us can't go see Lyla, Bo, & Marie right now, we're totally with you!! ...Thanks to blogger :)
I saw Baby Harper's story through Jacci's and Mer's blogs. Her mom, Kelly, had a totally normal labor and delivery, but then they discovered that Harper couldn't breathe on her own. She had to be life-flighted to...Oklahoma (I think??).. and Kelly has used her blog multiple times a day to beg for prayer. Literally hundreds of thousands of people have found Kelly's blog, commented, prayed, sent support & gifts, etc. If you haven't gone over to visit Kelly's Korner..you definitely need to.

I have had to be pushy at work in order to be allowed to try a new program at our gym. Pushiness has always been out-of-character, but I'm finding this new, undercover headstrong person that I'm slightly unfamiliar with! Well....finally I'm getting a shot. YAYY!! Starting Feb. 9, Premier is presenting Bridal Bootcamp with Roxanne Bradford!! :) I'm superrrr pumped. I KNOW we'll get a good response. Not a big deal to anyone else, I know, but I am EXCITED about it! Can't wait til Feb. 9th.
I 100% love to feel Avery move. I also 100% love showing off my babybump haha. Is that weird? I don't know! But it really is SO fun to go in public with a figure-hugging shirt on. Oh- my Sugar Land (FCCC) shower and my Austin shower are both in the works. EEEE!!! I have to GET ON IT in terms of baby-room planning and everything though. Yikes.
I cannnnn't wait until next Wednesday (tentatively) because Jacci & Scarlett are making a special trip to Tyler to see me! They get to see our casa, and then they're gonna give me their expert input during a Registration trip to Babies'R'Us. Extra pumped.
Tuesday I was soooo tirrrrred. I've been pretty dang tired for the last couple of weeks (Booo) So anyway, I left the kitchen a nasty mess when I went back to work for the afternoon/evening and texted Brian telling him to please ignore it bc it would look beautiful again when I got back from work. I planned on going to Brian's soccer game that night after work because it wasn't until 9, so I would make it JUST in time! I was missing his bball game for work, so 1 out of 2 was the best I could do. He LOVES when I'm at his games. It's cute. However, my post-work plans were soon to change.
1. Brian made sure that after work I went home and got some good food to eat and went to BED. No pressure to go to his game, he wanted me to sleep. Big deal? Big deal. That was Brian being 100% sweet and selfless because he totally wanted me at the game.
2. So- I get home, walk in the kitchen ...and it is SPOTLESS. No dishes in the sink. Trash taken out- new bag in. Clean countertops. Everything back in the pantry. I mean- seriously. Big deal.
3. A few hours earlier in the day, Brian had left me a voicemail saying, "Hey babe- just calling to tell you I love you. Have fun training and I'll see you tonight." I needed it that day. It gave me a much-needed energy boost!
Um...Oscar nom for Best Hub- Brian David Bradford.

Friday- We both worked and then went out to Shogun for my DELICIOUS bday dinner with a very random group of my friends (my fav). Loved it. Great night. EXCEPT...they WOULD not sing to me. I think they didn't believe me that it was actually my bday. But they sang to the dude at the table next to us!? It was actually kinda sad...but I got over it. :)
Saturday- I worked in the morning and got home just in time for B and Tbabe to wake up! We had yummy breakfast and L.O.U.N.G.E.D. It was awesome. Played some Rockband (Tbabe is obsessed). Watched UT bball (Hook'em). Brian grilled some amaaazzzzing dinner and we just had a nice day/night at home.
Sunday- Caught an early matinee (Gran Torino...movie review coming soon) and then Brian left town to hunt with one of his buddies. Tbaby and I hung out, chatted, snacked (ALOT), ran some errands, bought some super cool new exercise stuff at Target, I found a way cute maternity dress for under $10, I gave her the grand tour of where I work, and then rockbanded some more that night. Em and Katie came over to have a nice little girls gathering, I stayed up too late, and that was that.
Tbaby left to today to head back to Austin but it was graannnnnddd to just relax and chat and e goofy like the good ol' days @ UT :) LOVE YOU TBABE!!
K... Monday's are my short day so I'm done with work, now on to laundry, taking Kerbs to the park, working out, and cleaninnnggg!
Oh...next belly pic to come soon. Tbabe has to email it to me :)

Although this pic was taken at 23 weeks, I am now (as of today) 24 weeks pregling! Avery has begun to move around a whoollllle lot more than before. I'm thinking that my 3 hours worth of jumping and dancing on the dancefloor at Nug's wedding must have inspired little Avery to practice for future dance parties with her momma :)
PS- I am one pastey girl!

So plans didn't quite pan out the way we had hoped, but we had a blast anyway. We got into town MUCH later than anticipated so cancelled plans with L&K. We went to dinner at my favvvv place ever: Benihana. And now I crave it every single day. Awesome. Dinner took so long that we just went home, watched the ball drop on TV, and waited for my party-animal parentals to get home from their night on the town :)
We spent the rest of the week hanging out with my bros before they go back to school, chillin with the parentals, seeing old Shoog friends, watching Kerbey and Tori completely exhaust eachother. The boys golfed, while mom and I went maternity shopping. The boys went to the shooting range, while mom and I went maternity shopping again. FYI- on Thursday of last week, my jeans were all of a sudden MUCH tighter. CRAZYYY/fun :) Yay for the Shoog. Yay for my Curry fam. Yay for 2009. and Yay for my handy-man hub who is a TERRIFIC garbage-disposal-installer. It sure is nice to have my very own personal plumber :)
