did you know? matteo edition…..

19 Oct

matteo

our little man is 7 weeks old now!

it’s amazing how something so little

can change your life so drastically. (for the better!)

the husby and i are still figuring  out

this baby, like who does what and when and how,

but either way,

he has got us wrapped around his finger.

he smiles and doesn’t even know how or why yet

and it just melts us.

^^^^^

the no sleep thing is  for real,

like six hours sounds good to me now

and some days my hair is in a knot on the top of my head

and i realize that i haven’t changed out of my pj’s,

but does it matter?

not when that baby boy looks at me like

i’m the only thing in the world that matters.

^^^^^

he’s got me dancing around the house,

making crazy faces,

and singing lullaby’s, or any song for that matter,

just to keep him entertained!

i’ll look like a fool for him, and

i wouldn’t change it for the world.

you sure have stollen our hearts baby matteo!

^^^^^

did you know……?

  1. he loves a warm bath and  gets mad when they end
  2. he favors his left hand
  3. there’s a possibility of blue eyes
  4. he has hair on his ears like a little wolf
  5. he has mamma’s hands and papa’s toes
  6. he’s happiest when there is music playing
  7. car rides make him sleepy
  8. he has made our lives complete

play time

here and there…..

here and there…… (before baby)

27 Aug

so here i am into my 39th week of pregnancy trying to be as patient as possible for this little guy to come.

and as easy and wonderful as my pregnancy has been,

i must say this has to be the hardest part.

…..waiting…..

“come out baby boy, we want to meet you”

with all this time on my hands (which i know i will miss)

i’ve sort of run out of things to do.

i’ve washed every article of clothing in this house,

pretty much redecorated my downstairs,

refurnished a piece of furniture,

and the list goes on.

i know what your thinking, then why haven’t i revealed the nursery yet?

i am waiting on one small item and then

i promise I’ll reveal it.

if baby doesn’t get here before then!

but until then, here are a few pics

here and there and everywhere we go

…..before baby is in the picture…..

we are feeling very spoiled over here these days.

the baby shower was this past weekend

and with all the love, support and gifts we received,

we sure are feeling blessed.

plus packages are arriving at our door step almost everyday!

it’s like christmas, except the gift we’re getting

is the greatest gift in the whole world

♥♥♥ a baby ♥♥♥

i have to thank my family, (mom&sisters) for putting together an amazing shower

and my friends genevieve and jennifer for helping

bring all the details to life.

we’ll never forget this special day as long as we live.

we would also like to thank everyone who has

been a part of this amazing adventure we’re on.

we can’t thank you all enough and we can’t wait for you all to share

in our little ones life.

did you know?… baby edition…

22 May
i use to do these “did you know” blogs in the beginning
to give you guys a chance to learn some funny facts about us,
so then i thought, why not let you know what baby boy
has put in our head these days.
 
  1. he was ready for babies years before she was
  2. she always thought she’d have all her kids before 30
  3. he thought she was pregnant with a girl
  4. she knew all along it was a boy
  5. he thinks she should drink espresso so the baby comes out liking it (it’s an italian thing)
  6. she doesn’t drink caffeine let alone espresso
  7. they plan to teach their baby italian
  8. he wants a little soccer player
  9. she never liked the color red and it somehow made it in the nursery
  10. they can’t seem to agree on a name
  11. they think this is going to be one of their greatest adventures
more fun facts here, here, and here
 
sand baby

i thought our baby pictures were appropriate for this.
^^^^^
love these pics cuz even though we were so far apart then
we are somehow still connected.

figuring this stuff out….

7 Mar

confused

so i’m into my 14th week of pregnancy over here,

and feeling pretty great!

by the way, i was always annoyed when people used weeks to describe

how far along they were in their pregnancy, but now i get it.

a lot changes in a week.

 forgive me if i ever criticized you.

just don’t expect me to say my little one is 28 months old!

you get up to a year and that’s about it.

(don’t quote me on this, i’ve been know to change my mind. hehe)

anyways, i’m feeling very fortunate for how wonderful i’ve been feeling.

i might even go as far to say that this pregnancy stuff is kinda easy.

(again, don’t quote me on that, or hate me for it)

i’m just saying all these extra hormones have made me feel

happy, and as of a week ago more energetic,

and the extra hair on my head….. pretty amazing.

(i’m sad it’s gonna go)

 the hard part has been figuring out all the things that baby will need.

i mean, the options are endless.

why do i need 20 different changing pads to pick from????

i’ve slowly been writing down suggestions and reviewing every product that’s out there

but it’s a little over whelming and feels never-ending.

i know i’ve got time, but anyone who knows me, knows that i like to be over prepared for things,

so why would baby be any exception.

so i thought i would ask for a little help from you guys.

i would love to know what your must haves, can’t live with out, wouldn’t leave the house with,

top rated baby shenanigans you think we’ll need:

products, gear, clothing toys, and whatever else is out there.

you’d be saving me a great deal of time and i would be truly grateful.

can’t wait to hear from you all.

thanks!

xoxo
