Shutterfly has deals for these 8×8 photo albums all of the time. I FINALLY made one!!! We had a photo session on October 20th for Fall, and I just had to create something with them, and this is what I came up with, along with Thanksgiving cards that I ordered through Vistaprint.

I love paper projects!!!

Here’s our photo album. It only took like two hours to create. You just have to make sure you have all the pictures on hand that you would like to use. It was so much fun and turned out so wonderful!!! I got the promo code after I made a baby purchase at Food Lion.

Here is a link to my Fall Project!:





I am so proud of my son! He finally nursed for a long period of time today! At the hospital he would nurse consistently for the two days we were there for 20 minutes or more at a time. This morning he nursed on the side opposite and for 16 minutes at that!!

It’s been 6 weeks!! I’m so proud of my boopie!! Way to go Daniel, and happy 6 weeks old!!

Olympus PEN E-PL1

My Olympus came in the mail yesterday and I’ve been going crazy taking test shots! It’s been such a blast!! I’ve been into photography for as long as I can remember, and finally my own DSLR camera. Um! I’m so excited!! So, here’s what I have. I’m 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant today!!

Just call me, Maternity Mama ~ In Pink! 🙂




And. Armed with an Olympus PEN E-PL1 DSLR cam.


25 Weeks, 2 days!!

How far along: 25 weeks, 2 days!
Total Weight Gain: Omg I’m at 22lbs gained since pregnancy! My OB told me not to worry too much because he suspects me to gain between 25-35 for the entire pregnancy since I started off small @ 127lbs!
Stretchmarks: Can’t tell, but that pregnancy line is getting darker!!
Sleep: Omg, bad lately. Wake up aching!
Best Moment This Week: Wow, feeling him tumble in my belly!!!!
Movement: His rolling!!! We felt it once and tried to film it but he wouldn’t let me hehehe. Also, he is most active around 3pm daily 😉 Makes me smile.
What I Miss: At 25 weeks, I miss not having to waddle. I miss not having back pains. I miss being able to go more places ~ not that baby is restricting, but I gotta have some energy first! And, tolerance!
What I am Looking Forward to: Painting his room letters. We bought the color today. “Seafarer” from Valspar.
Milestones: Baby’s heartbeat was 140 at our most recent ultrasound 🙂

18 Weeks Pregnant!

How far along: 18 weeks!!
Total Weight Gain: Me, 3 pounds since my last appointment!
Stretchmarks: None yet, but you can see that pregnancy line going up your belly.
Sleep: I have been sleeping ok, I have some aches. I always try to sleep on my left side since that is what’s recommended. Sleeping on your back is a no-no!
Best Moment This Week: Seeing little Daniel on the ultrasound monitor last week! His cute little toes, hands and feet, we were elated!!!
Movement: Yes, I feel little pops all the time. Little boo doesn’t weigh enough so I’ll feel it harshly, but momma does feel some slight movement. So cute! Our nurse said he was stretched out from left to right, and his little head being on the right. During the ultrasound, she’d put the joystick on the right side of my belly and I felt a sharp pain, she told me that it was probably his ELBOW! Omg, little boo was poking me some kind of hard! Lol. I love him already.
Gender: Boy, boy, BOY!! Weeee!!!
Labor Signs: Nooo, not any time soon, Praise the Lord.
Belly Button: Major outtie. That thing is pretruding and you can see it poking out through my shirts that I wear!
What I Miss: Nothing yet, I am having a ball!
What I am Looking Forward to: Seeing little boo for the first time, continuing to decorate his baby room with some personal momma touches.
Milestones: Baby’s foot was 1 inch in length at our last prenatal visit. Only the size of the tip of my pinky finger 😉

Loving my Little Daniel,
