Welcome to the wonderful world of pregnant Chrissi...oh, what a funny place this can be!

I cry.
I sleep an hour past my alarm {although I am really awake, I just refuse to get out of the bed}.
Baby bedding is all I want to think about/plan.
I laugh about our gender debacle {more on that soon}.
I get leg cramps during the night.
I feel huge {and realize I have a long way to go before I really know what "HUGE" is}!
I forget everything.
I touch my belly too much {who could help it?!}.
I let worry get the best of me.

I smile.
I fall more in love with my husband watching him talk to the baby and get excited over tiny shoes and tiny outfits.
I praise the Lord for creating this child inside of me who is growing strong and steady.
I ultimately remember who is in control and I let go of the worry and trust that HIS PLAN is way bigger than my own.  

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.  PHIL. 4:4-9

Life is good, regardless of the stress, the worries, the tears...December will be here before we know it and I can hardly wait!!

Choose happiness, and make it a great day! 



  1. Ah so sweet!! I want pictures of said belly!!! ;)

  2. Every time I read one of your pregnancy blogs I just sit here and smile :) You have such a wonderful family to be a part of! All his (I hope he is still a he at your next ultrasound, too - that's soo funny!) cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents, (and parents too, of course!) are going to make for one LOVED little man! I cannot wait to see your parents covered in all their grandbabies next year! I came from a rather small family - I have 4 cousins, that's it. And 2 siblings, of course I think you know that. Your family inspires me to have a LOT more than the original 2 kids we were considering. You guys look like you have soo much fun together, and know what is important in life - relationships and FAMILY! I'm soo excited for you both :)


I would love to hear from you ... Don't be shy :)
