22 Weeks


Here is my ever-growing belly at 22 weeks. I can't believe I'm more than halfway done with cookin this baby! But at the same time I can't believe that I still have 18 weeks left.. I'm getting super anxious to have him here! I'm still feeling pretty good, except for the massive headaches I'm getting almost daily now, and the heart burn after eating anything... that's no fun.
Jesse and I have decided on a name for the little guy, it's going to be Walter Carroll Barocio. He'll go by Wally. He'll be named after Jesse's great Uncle Walter and my Grandpa Willard Carroll Jones. I think it has a nice ring to it... and I just love the "old people" names for some reason.

I'm a Shopaholic

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-p0Dh0sBCllw/TxcS7hboNLI/AAAAAAAAA18/rEyHLlVZDoM/s320/spacer.gifNow that I know that I'm having a boy, going into any store is very dangerous. Shopping for baby stuff is seriously addicting! I can't control myself, and when I go with my mom, it's even worse! It's pretty much a rule now that I can't leave a store without buying one baby item. I already have a bunch of outfits and today I even bought a little bouncy chair at Target... gotta love sales!

Here is the bouncy chair me and my mom found

And here's the start to all the little boy clothes

It's a......

BOY!!! And there's no doubt about it. Just a few seconds of having the little ultrasound thingy on my belly, he proudly showed his goods for all of us to see :)
We are so excited to have a boy! Right after our appointment we went over to Target and picked out a couple adorable outfits to celebrate. Now I really can't wait for May to get here!

Baby Update

I am officially half way today! The past few weeks have definitely been much better in terms of how I have felt. The whole sickness thing has pretty much disappeared. The only times that I get sick are when I've gone too long without food, and too long is only about 1 to 2 hours. I eat like crazy! And I love that I have an excuse to do it. Even with all the eating I've been doing, I have only gained about 5 pounds total, and most of that I put on right at the beginning. I am definitely showing now too. Most of the shirts I wore before are way too small, so I've had an excuse to do a bunch of shopping. My pants still fit... kinda. Even though I haven't put of much weight, I have a really hard time doing up my pants, and most the time I just leave them unbuttoned. I guess my belly is just super low so already nothing fits.
My belly at 20 weeks
I've made it my goal to learn how to make different things for the baby, like blankets, quilts, and clothes. My first project is this blanket that I'm crocheting around the edges.
This is the second blanket that I have ever done this way, the first one I did back when I was 12, so I'm not very good at it and the edges are all pretty uneven, but I plan on making a few more so hopefully I'll get to be as good as my mom and grandma are at making them.
On a more exciting note, I have finally felt the baby move! Only just a couple times, but still pretty cool. I never felt that fluttery feeling that most people said happens, and if I did, I didn't pay attention to it, but now I have felt what feels like the baby doing flips. Also, we get to have an ultrasound done on Thursday telling us what "it" is!! I am super super excited to find out! Everyone except Jesse thinks that it's a boy, but he convinced it's a girl. I honestly have no feelings either way, so I'll be surprised no matter what.

1 Year!

Even though this was a few weeks ago, Jesse and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary on December 18th! It's crazy that it's been over a year now since we got married.
On the 17th, Jesse and I went down to Salt Lake and spent the day hanging out down there. We went shopping at the Gateway and Jesse bought me some very pretty and comfy pajamas from Victorias Secret. I'm a bad wife and didn't get him anything because what the heck do you buy for a guy on your anniversary other than food? After we went shopping, we went and checked ourselves in to the Grand America for a night, where we were totally out of place and probably looked really funny to all of the posh wealthy people who actually could afford to stay there. Even though we were very out of place, we had a lovely time doing absolutely nothing for an entire day together. Yay for 1 year!
