We have finally moved!! Josh and I have been busy moving, painting, unpacking, organizing and renovating our new home in Huntsville.  I hope to complete more detailed blog posts talking about the work we have done to the house so far... but here are a few pics we took before we moved in... 

Den w/ Fireplace - Before we moved in, painted, got a new light & window treatments

Laundry in Hallway

Half Bath - Complete with mauve walls...


Kitchen w/ Red Walls... a little overwhelming... we can fix that :)

Entry w/ Stained Glass over door 

 Foyer/Staircase before we painted...

 Formal Living Room/Dining Room

 Spare Bedroom - Soon to be the Nursery :)

 Guest Bathroom

Master Bedroom - Lots of Green 

Vanity in Master Bath 

Back porch and yard = Molly's paradise :)

We have been working really hard to fix things up and get organized... big projects will obviously take us some time, but I am excited to document the process on the blog.  I am hoping to fill you in on some projects we have tackled so far and show you updated pictures of how it is looking so far.

We are so incredibly thankful for our new home and ultimately want to use it to glorify God as our family grows.

20 Week Update

How Far Along: 20 Weeks (Last Friday)

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a banana (7 inches long, 11 oz)

The Bad: Still a little heartburn... but other than that, I can't complain!

Maternity Clothes: I am in maternity pants and tops all the time now... don't really have anything non-maternity that fits anymore. I am also loving the maternity dresses - very comfortable!

Gender: BOY!!!  We were able to find out super early at our 15 week appointment with a quick sonogram... we got to confirm it last week at our official 20 week sonogram.  We officially announced it on facebook as well - we are so excited to meet our little man!

Sleep: Still getting up at least once to use the bathroom each night... trying to sleep on my side as much as possible now and it is getting difficult/slightly uncomfortable.  

Movement: About  two weeks ago (around 18.5 weeks) I started feeling some definite movement.  2 days before I hit 20 weeks... Josh felt him kick as well!  I was so excited that he got to feel him kick too.  Our little boy is pretty active at night... especially right around 10:30 or so when I am trying to go to sleep :).  

What I miss: Sleeping on my back...

Cravings: Nothing too crazy yet... I was craving peanut butter a lot in the beginning.  I later discovered that peanuts were the source of a lot of my heartburn... I had to give it up for the time being.  

Symptoms: Heartburn, frequent trips to the bathroom, belly showing :)

Best Moment this week: Seeing the detailed sonogram at our 20 week appointment - it was so exciting to see all of the details of our little guy.  What a miracle.  

This week we also moved into our new house in Huntsville!  It is excited to get settled and unpacked as we prepare for our expanding family.  We are so thankful for the many blessings that God has given us including a new home.  

I am hitting the road for work this week... I am hoping to update everyone when I return with pictures of our new house!!  Stay tuned...
