Maternity Bathing Suit

Bathing suit shopping is horrible enough. But having to do it pregnant, well it really stinks! I went to Target looking for a suit. Because Mikey already wants to be in the water. I didn't find anything for me. But we got him a few pairs of swimming trunks. They are too cute!

I usually really like Liz Lang's line at Target. But the bathing suits weren't very impressive. But I did find some I like at Old Navy. And Mike was such a trooper! He kept going to get me different sizes and colors as I was in the dressing room. :)

I decided on this cute top. It was on sale for $19.50. And I really like how supportive and covered it is. That was my problem with the ones at Target. They weren't too covered up. And with an 18 month old, I need some security in my suit!

And these bottoms. Nothing fancy. But they're nice. And only $15.

What do you think? I really like the suit. And know we can start swimming more often. We also bought a few things for Mike and Mikey. And we got our dog a new collar. It was definitely a good trip!

Target Dresses

We went to Target to go do some shopping. I really needed a few maternity pieces. You know, being dressed and pregnant, well it's not the best. I'm not going to lie, when I was pregnant with Mikey, I would run around the house in t-shirts and underwear. You know, when you get to your last trimester, clothes just become too much!

But this time around, I have a son. A 18 month old son. So I want to be a good mommy. And wear clothes. I'm really liking dresses. Because being pregnant, it feels more like you're not wearing clothes. So I bought 3 dresses...

I like this one. I'm not in love with it. But I like it. I figure I can wear it to church or anywhere a little more dressy. I do like the fit of it a lot though. It's a little more than I'd have liked to spend, $40. But I figure I can wear a lot. And save it for our next pregnancy.

Because we live in the desert, and here it's hottest from May-July, I got this dress. It's really really comfy and cute. Perfect for play dates at the park! And it was $37.

I bought this dress because we're invited to 3 weddings this summer. I think this would be a nice dress. Even in the heat of the summer. And you can style it so many ways! Different shoes, jewelry, etc. Oh and I can use it during my next pregnancy. This was a very good $40 spent!

I really like Target in general. I shop there for a lot of our clothes and housewares. It's just good quality, nice style, and won't break the bank! But Liz Lang's line is my favorite! At least for maternity wear! I've been wearing almost everything I wore when I was pregnant with Mikey. And it has helped up so well!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! We had such a nice day. The Easter bunny definitely spoiled Mikey this year. And he really enjoyed his Easter much more than last year. :)

We started out with church. Which was a lot of fun. We all got dressed up. And then they had an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Lots and lots of fun! Then we headed out for breakfast. Where we met up with some of the guys from the fire house. They had this for Mikey!

Thanks guys! I don't know if he needed another Easter basket. But he loved it! He got a total of 5 baskets this year. Spoiled little guy, huh?

The guys come over with some of their families. Most of the guys are still single. And we had a nice dinner and Easter egg hunt for the kids. It was really a lot of fun! And before he went to bed, Mikey asked to his Jesus stories. :) We read from his Children's Bible in the morning and we usually read a book at night. I guess he just knew today was about Jesus. :)

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy...I Got Love in My Tummy

And I was right! We're having a baby boy! Finally our little guy decided to cooperate with us. At our last appointment, we couldn't find out if we were having a boy or girl. He just didn't want to let us know! But this time around, our little guy cooperated a bit more. :)

We have a name picked out. Daniel. No middle name yet. We're working on that. You know, since it's official that we're having another little man. :) In case you're wondering, it's Daniel is after Mike's brother. He passed away a few years ago. And we just wanted to honor him.

We have just about 15 weeks to wait for our little man now. I really need to get moving on our nursery. Oh the nursery...that's a whole other story for another blog. But we are so excited about having another son!
