Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. We were in San Antonio, our home away from home, Sunday through Wednesday. We love going to the riverwalk, I think we have been there 4 times this year. We usually stay on the riverwalk and just eat and walk around while talking about where we are going to eat next. It is always so beautiful this time of year. We got back just in time to go to my brother's for Christmas Eve dinner. James and I really didn't get anything for eachother just our little mini vacation and a Playstation 3. Men and their toys. He's been wanting one for a long time and since he's been working really hard lately I told him I wanted him to get one for Christmas. I didn't really want or need anything anyways. The only things I wanted are for the nursery and I already know we are going to get those. I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of the lights on the riverwalk.

I am now on week 24 and I haven't felt her move much. In fact I was not sure I had felt her at all. There were times when I thought I would feel something but as soon as it caught my attention it was gone. It probably only happened about 4 or 5 times within the last week. All my books and from talking to other people I thought I would feel start to feel it at about 18 weeks. I was not ever worried because every time we heard the heartbeat it was really strong and Dr. Manning said she could hear her moving in there.

So on Wednesday we ate dinner and I thought I would just get off my feet for a minute before cleaning up my mess. And I am pretty sure I could feel her moving. It felt like my intestines were rolling in my stomach. It only lasted for about 20 seconds. But it was the best 20 seconds I have had since becoming pregnant. I just can't believe that there is a baby in there. A little girl in my class who is 2 was telling my about her mommy and daddy and right then it hit me that one day this little person would be walking around calling us mommy and daddy. It is just soooo surreal. I cannot wait until the day that little Olivia will be here.

I did have a Dr.'s appt. yesterday it was my glucose screening. I won't know anything until next week about that but everything else checked out good. I did ask her about movement and she said it was a little unusual that I wasn't feeling her more often. She didn't seemed concerned and said she is probably just lazy. Off to a busy day shopping, baby shower and then a Christmas party. Not to mention that we bought a tree last Saturday and it still does not have one decoration on it.
