After lunch, we stopped by the cemetery to visit Pau Pau. Everyone misses her dearly.
Then I headed to Galveston to hang out with the family a little more. Jacob insisted that he and Jackson were going to stay home and watch the football game, so I didn't argue. I spent the next few hours baby free and relaxed =)
On the way home, I stopped by Target... go figure. I finally bought that green and white baby blanket I've been eyeing for the past few months. It's so pretty and soft, I'm so happy I finally got it. Yes, it's something that simple that makes me happy.
This pregnancy has been so different than my pregnancy with Jackson. With Jackson, I gained a whooping 50 lbs! Keep in mind that I'm only 4'11 or as I like to say, 5 ft. So far, I've only gained 25 lbs. this time around and I'm still in my normal jeans. I don't mean to brag, but I'm super happy about that. I haven't had any morning sickness and besides the normal aches and pains, I feel great. And no acne this time around... that has to be my favorite part. I hated the acne.
When we first found out we were pregnant, Jacob and I couldn't wait to find out the sex of the baby. But as time went on and I started thinking about it, I thought that it would be the most wonderful surprise to wait until the big day to find out if this little baby is a girl or boy. Jacob, on the other hand, wanted to know. But after talking him into it, he thought it would be nice to wait too. Which is a good thing because there's no way he could keep that secret from me.
I can't wait to meet this little baby. It's going to be bittersweet for me. I'm going to be thrilled to finally hold this baby in my arms, but this may be my last pregnancy and I'm a little sad about that. I love feeling the bumps and kicks, and I may never experience this again.
But anyways, I'm going to enjoy the next 7 weeks to the fullest and take in all the Jack Jack that I can =)
We're looking forward to house hunting soon. I'm excited to have a home, but kind of sad to leave my parents. They've helped us so much and I know they're going to miss Jackson. And Jackson will miss them too. (and Moy Moy) But hopefully we can find something great nearby so we'll be able to visit daily.
I usually spend my days hanging out with Jackson, running random errands, and sometimes if I can find time during Jackson's nap, a craft or two. I really enjoy crafts of all kinds, but my favorite things to do are scrapbook, make cards, and carve stamps.
I also have a love for good food. Lately I've been into baking yummy cookies, but I really love to cook good ole' Chinese food... like the stuff my grandma used to make. Yet, I don't cook very often... mom and dad are great at that!
Well, I'm looking forward to start posting... hope you like =)
