I have an addiction to shopping, or at least searching the internet. For what? For baby stuff! I am not even through my first trimester yet and I already want to buy everything in site! Not to mention the ideas for decorating! AHHHH!! I still don't know what our nursery will look like if we have a boy or by any chance twins, but if we have a girl I have a really good feeling the nursery will look something like this...
Is that not beautiful tranquility in it's essence? Purple is my favorite color and I absolutely LOVE this nursery. I would love to do the ceiling like that but I have a feeling it isn't a DIY thing and probably not a cheap thing. I'll improvise somehow. Other than that everything looks amazing! The only problem is that we aren't sure if we will be in this house by the time the baby comes. My mom is moving down here in October and I think if Jon ends up deploying in the beginning of next year I will move in with her. That was we can save money and I can save my sanity haha. The problem with that is that she is dead set on renting a house and they usually are not ok with painting... TOTAL PARTY POOPERS!!! 

I will seriously cry if I can't paint and decorate our baby's nursery the way I want to. It's like 75% of the fun of pregnancy! I can't just throw a crib and chair in any old room and call it a day! That's ridiculous! 

I am full of emotion since we found out we're pregnant. I am anxious and curious to know if we are having a boy or a girl or twins?? haha. I am nervous that I am going to do something wrong or eat something I'm not supposed to that will result badly for the baby. I would never forgive myself. Guys have it so easy... Bah. 

But yea back to my mom. How awesome is it that she is moving here? She has always wanted to live in North Carolina so this is a perfect opportunity for her. She is in the process of adopting my little brother and sister so she can't move down until October but that is fine. It will be so great having her and my little munchkins around. Especially when the baby comes! It will be amazing having her guidance and support and help. I am very thankful for her. 

I've talked your ear off enough for one night. I am going to go rub lotion on my tummy religiously as to hopefully avoid stretch marks. haha. 

I Love You Mr. Sykes<3

  1. If you don't have a baby girl I'll take the room! I love those bird prints!

  2. Soooo great about your mom coming down~ BTW, mom and I are already planning our next vacay for next June after school. AND we are thinking maybe John and the grandparents will come down too! We had so much fun:) About your other post...just pray and read your bible and know that God has a plan for you and Jon and baby! And all things work for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose! Everything will be okay!

  3. I think that would be great!! It would be awesome to have everyone here! Especially with the baby so we can play pass the baby :-) haha.
    I know that everything will be ok. Faith is key.

  4. Congrats on the bun in your oven!!!! I hope your feeling good. If you get really bad morning can take Vit B6. I've had 4 kids...and that really helped me.
