My bambino.

Is actually a bambino.  My stomach may contain nuts.  It does.  We’re having a boy.  Here’s a few photos of what we did to reveal the sex to my in laws.

Us and our boy cake.  (I used a whole can of frosting dyed blue for the center, it was pretty obvious from the first cut when the knife came out covered in blue icing, whoops).


Me, 15 weeks 4 days and a boy.  He’s 5 inches and 5 ounces, big guy!

A peach.

That’s how big my baby is.  Yep.  I’m 13 almost 14 weeks pregnant blog world.  That’s why I have had my cutback on running.  Just thought you should know.   I’ve been dying to tell EVERYONE!

Now that I’m out of my first trimester, I have been given the all clear to run (as long as my heart rate stays below 150).  I must be terribly out of shape right now, I guess that’s what 16ish weeks of no real running will do to you.  Because I’m having the HARDEST time keeping below that magic number.  Garmie is now programmed to beep every time I hit 150 and the thing won’t shut up till I’ve slowed down, it' keeps beeping.  Right now my ‘runs’ are run 1 minute, walk 5ish and run 1, hear Garmie beep and swear and walk.  That’s about it.  But I’m increasing my mileage and trying to stay active.  I’m sure one of these days I’ll switch solely to swimming but right now I’m enjoying the fall weather with my friends.  Here are some photos cause I know you’re interested…


Blurry, I know, but I love this picture.  I found out my baby was the size of a grain of rice at 6ish weeks and took a picture of me with a grain of rice.  As long as my baby’s something cute, I’m taking  a picture of it.  And, incase my pregnancy isn’t as long as most I’m taking a picture every week.  No reason not to celebrate this whole experience, right?  I’m sure I won’t be able to do this for bambino #2.


Me and a lime, 11 weeks


Me and a plum, 12 weeks.  Getting gussied up right now for my 13 week photo shoot when hubby gets home from work. 


Happy Friday everyone!
