Week in review

You know what makes Monday mornings bearable and actually enjoyable? Baby flutter kicks!! I wasn't sure if this was the real thing last week but baby Hart has for sure moving and shaking the past few days and it couldn't be more precious. Yesterday at church I kept grabbing Jon's hands to put on my tummy to see if he could feel it but for now, it is something little man and I will share together until he gets bigger. 

The past week has been full of random fun...craft night, game night with our community group, date night, baby registry, more community group nights and surprisingly lots of energy for this prego. You know who hasn't had much energy?

To give you a hint he has a giant head and a is less than a foot tall...


The other day Jon and I were talking about Ernie and how things may change when the baby comes. Please don't comment about how he is being naive or "just wait" but Jon is sure that he will still give Ernie just as much attention and love... which makes me so happy. It makes me sad that he won't be my #1 baby anymore but I know it is natural...luckily Ernie will still sleep with me in bed...unlike baby so we will for sure get lots of cuddle time! Jon said that I still need to post lots of pictures of him when the baby comes since he has so many fans ;-)

I think he is getting antsy for the baby to come so I will stop dressing him up in baby clothes/accessories. Just imagine if we were having a girl...Ernie would be a bow and headband model for sure. 


He is funny about all the baby stuff we are accumulating...he wants to be right there in all the action. Or I should say ON the action. I was showing Jon some baby clothes I got and Ernie perched himself right on top of the stack, despite the wide open floor. 


Friday I attending the Verge Conference, a disciple making Christian conference, in downtown Austin. I had the pleasure of hearing incredible talks from David Platt and Francis Chan, surrounded by 2,500 other believers. Another highlight of my week was purchasing my ticket to the Hope Spoken Conference (and being one of the first 20 tickets woot woot). Let the year long countdown begin.


I highly recommend the book and sermon series Real Marriage by Marc Driscoll (and his wife Grace) from Mars Hill Church. Jon and I love being married and often say we feel like we are good at it but nothing humbles you more then realizing your own sin and downfalls in marriage, especially when it comes to thriving for a Christ centered one. The sermons can all be found online here


Like I've said before, I like hoarding my husband on the weekends since his weeks involve lots of travel. We did an at home date night with dessert out but also spent time with friends this weekend. Jon saw Django for the 2nd time and we basically spent the rest of the weekend listening to the soundtrack which I must say, kicks butt.


Saturday night the guys in our community group celebrated Texas Independence Day with a Texas Hold Em tournament and a few Texas themed beverages...


Pretty much half the ladies in our group are pregnant so we enjoyed dinner at La Madeline, typical girl conversation, and crashed the guy party later that night. I am proud at how much I've late night rallied during my 2nd trimester!

Yesterday was pretty much the most beautiful day ever and after church and Greek food out, I talked Jon into outside chores around the house. Again... I rallied and helped Jon wash and wax both cars, pull weeds, and dilly dally outside. We have hopes of getting a deck built before summer time so it was fun to plan out. 

I feel bad for Jon today, he was up at 4am to drive to Houston for a 1 hour meeting so we have a home date night...5pm...jammies and most likely some froyo.

Looks like a great weekend -- so glad you are starting to have some more energy! Gotta love the second trimester! AND, baby kicks are the best thing in the entire world! I actually really miss that part of pregnancy. AND, don't worry, you will find a way to give Ernie just as much attention. I was so worried about Bailey but Jason and I do a great job of making sure one of us is loving her up while the other has the baby! :)

Sounds like a fun weekend!! :) I cannot wait to feel baby kicks!!!

biggest thing I miss about being pregnant is those little flutters! And as someone with a dog who was the center of our family's universe, I can honestly say that Sookie (our lab) is still our big baby even though we have a human baby now too :)

2nd trimester energy is amazing! We moved when I was 20 weeks and I was cleaning and packing and moving and not tired at all! And it was July, in Texas. Crazy. My mom couldn't keep up with me. Enjoy it while you can!

And thay conference sounds amazing. Have you ever gone to a "secret church" broadcast? David Platt does it every so often and other churches will video it in. I've never been but my parents always go and says it's wonderful.

I love seeing Ernie, and I'm sure he'll still get documented after the baby comes. You seem like you're a person that has it all together, and can handle a lot at once. And your love for him shines through!

It's Sooo Fluffy! said...

I can't wait to see all the pictures of baby Hart. I also hope you don't start to slack on the pup pics too!

When my little girl was born, we had been gifted two of the same outfits and instead of returning them we dressed up my puppy Maggie in the same outfit so they could match. So I completely understand dressing up your dog in baby clothes. We just moved to Texas in January and my husband has been very inclined to purchase Texas themed beverages, they are everywhere. Texas has a lot of state pride. I must say that I absolutely love it here so far.

Yay for baby flutters! I'll never forget that feeling! I'll have to check that book out, it sounds great!

Karla said...

Kicks already?! How cute!! That Ernie boy is adorable he's going to be a great big brother!!

CMae said...

I think Kristin said it best at the top, you will find a way to make it all work out with attention being divided up amongst fur baby and human baby! :) PS love the blog make over! When did that go down?! hehe

Love the new layout girl!

Well Ernie looks pretty smooth in the hat. I can't wait to see the little hart and Ernies first photo shoot together. Of course about age two Ernie will learn new hiding places because little man will try to pick him up and carry him and all you will see is Ernie's eyes bugged out of his head.

Our Evan was always a mover and shaker during worship at church when I was pregnant with him, and he's a big fan of music now. Maybe your little guy will be, too. And our fur baby was a fabulous big sister to him and was so protective. Ernie will be to Baby Hart, too. No doubt you'll be able to get lots of pics of them together!
