baby hippos

i don't know if i would have said this before i was pregnant, but i don't think i would have seen all of these adorable hippos on etsy had i not been pregnant. hippos are so big and clumsy looking, much like i am hoping this baby to look like :) baby wooten may be in need of a few of these things in her nusery

she's engaged

when we were wee ones, i used to have two pacifiers with me at all times. one for me, and one in case she cried. later i used to threaten to rip off her bear, spotty, arms off. as we grew up we fought, we hit, we yelled, we talked, we cried, we shared our hearts, and we came to know of His love around the same time. she came to baylor where we learned even more about our sin and His saving grace. we would share in moments often that only a sister can understand. when my world was falling apart she was there to walk through it with me....

and now she is getting married.


he is her soulmate.

and i could not be more happy for her.

congrats veronica and jim! what a joyous time this is.

i love you both dearly :)

we had the whole fam over to find out the gender of our baby. i had intended it to be just a surprise factor for me (totally selfishly) but as it turns out it was a really special moment to get to share it with everyone :)

the cake says baby wooten. funny aside... i know i'm not the only one who has thought of this...the lady who did the sonogram was totally familiar with what we were doing. despite this when i tried to explain to the bakery what we were trying to do and that i didn't want to know what the cake was--you would have thought i was speaking a different language. i was just thankful we had the doctor write on two envelopes in case they got it wrong...

so in conclusion...

we are still a little up in the air about girl names...i am about 90 % set on one...just can't commit yet
my sister is a graphic designer and just started a blog. she played with a few of the names we are thinking about that you can check out here
--still don't have Internet at home...this is almost month number 2...hopefully at&t will get their act together quickly...

baby bump

alright here its is...the baby bump pic! i was actually around 18 weeks here. i don't know how to pose for this so my sweet hubby took quite a few :/
i am currently 20 weeks, and am aiming to be better about picture taking/blogposting it...
on another note i went to a little maternity store that was recommended to me by a friend, and i have a couple of reactions... WHAT! first of all, the options that were all there were all so terrible. i am talking pentecostal here. course i am totally over exaggerating, but my thoughts are i already have a huge belly can i at least look cute with it? or as normal as possible? then those prices?! holy moly...
so i went to one of my more random stops at the mall. JC Pennys. i was getting a little anxious here, we are leaving for chicago this week and with a little cooler weather i needed something to fit over this belly. um wow! first of all they were having a huge sale which was perfect! i got two pairs of jeans and a pair of black cropped pants for $55. i was so happy i could have jumped up and clicked my heels together :)
