Sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog; August was so busy!
The beginning of August started with my beautiful Goddaughter, Willow, being brought into this world. Words can’t even describe how incredibly beautiful she is. I’ve said it before in a blog, but being so far away is so difficult sometimes. Especially when such special events happen. I cannot wait until I get to finally meet this little girl in person! 👶🏼🎀💕
Also, this month I went to my 12 week baby appointment and got to hear Baby Sperry’s heartbeat once again. August brought about some pregnancy symptoms that were very new and uncomfortable for me. Pregnancy is a beautiful concept but some of the things associated with it aren’t so pretty 😜😁
Also, this month I have felt my baby flutter in my belly for the first time and it was incredible!! I absolutely love learning about everything going on in my body. Another amazing thing that happened this month is I got a fetal Doppler from a coworker and can listen to the baby’s heartbeat whenever I would like 💙💚👶🏼
I also got the privilege of re-enlisting one of my NCOs at the USS Missouri and that was AWESOME
Oh and I got a 3 day weekend with Daniel and we went on an awesome hike with the greatest view! Pali Puka Lookout
August was the month we really strapped down on planning our financial future. We have made strides toward investing, retirement, and stocks. We are still working on it but at least we know our goals!
Oh and in my free time I had in August, I watched the entire 3 seasons of Orange is the New Black and am not one bit ashamed-I highly recommend this on Netflix.
This month will be busy but exciting!!! We have started out this month trying to clean, organize, and prepare little by little for baby! We found a solid wood dresser for $100 that Daniel is currently sanding down now 😉
Also, the baby has started to receive some gifts!
Next week is my 16 week appointment as well as my appointment to find out the gender of our precious babe!!! I’m so stoked. I’m a planner so it’s been driving me crazy not knowing what we are having 😁 we will be having a gender reveal party next Sunday so stay tuned for 🎀 or 💙.
I also will be leaving for some training on the Big Island for 2 weeks at the end of this month and then will be switching to new job when I get back!
Busy busy busy but at least it will be Fall which makes it closer to Christmas 🎃🎄
Finally, I have been taking steps toward getting ready to apply for a master’s program… Which starts with studying for the GRE!! 😩
Wish me luck and thanks for all the support!
