My little sister spoils me. She buys me maternity clothes all the time refusing to tell me the price so I can't pay her back. On Christmas and my Birthday she steps in almost like a Mother surprising me with things I don't even think to ask for but deep down I wanted. She is one of the most generous people I know. So! For her Birthday, I do my best to compete with the showing of the love- but its hard to compare. Her last Birthday- December 17th- Iwas on my honeymoon and did nothing for her. This coming birthday I will have just had a baby and won't be coming to Arizona to celebrate with her.
So, I decided to celebrate her HALF birthday!I got some of my family to join in. In my last blog you saw my nephews and brother making her a fabulous birthday sign and helped make a cake.
Still working on my cake making/decorating skills- don't look too closely Jessica ;)
Rachel and the boys made her breakfast in bed. We surprised her with a shopping trip and a surprise visit from all her friends (she has a lot of friends!) at AppleBees. I love you Jeni!
My tummy seems to be getting bigger everyday and I'm finding it more uncomfortableto bend down, breathe, and stand for longer than 10 minutes. 17 1/2 weeks today! I got some great books at the library about pregnancy. 2 1/2 more weeks to find out the gender!
I've been pretty sick this week- unrelated to pregnancy. Sore throat, achy, headache, cold...etc. I spent Tuesday in bed- boring! And forbidden to kiss my husband and hold my nephew, I'm
pumping my garlic and Vitamin C trying to shake this. Unfortunately, I'm still having a hard time keeping food down.
I attempted to make bread today. I feel like I have big expectations around me- as not only every sister, mom, sister-in-law, mother-in-law and HUSBAND make prize winning bread!
Steven is still doing well selling. He had a couple of rough areas this week but is back on track.
Stay tuned for next week because tonight we're going to the circus with some other EcoFirst guys/wives and my little brother and sister and we're going to Southern Cali next week with my family. We're going to the beach and Disneyland!
