2012 is going to be a great year!

So I think it's finally time to explain why my blogging has sucked lately...

We're having a BABY!!

I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant and Baby E is a BOY! He should make his arrival around May 27, 2012 (Memorial Day weekend!) We are so excited (and nervous!)

I had a pretty rough 1st trimester as far as nausea and exhaustion (pregnancy is no joke!) But I'm feeling MUCH better now and I can honestly say I'm loving the pregnancy thing. Little man has recently started with some pretty strong kicks, which are awesome. Oh and whoever said that boys clothes aren't as cute as girls has obviously never shopped with me. He's not even here yet and this kid has several monogrammed and embroidered outfits that are to die for! Yes, we have a name picked already - but we're not sharing until he's born.

So I'm sure that many more baby blog posts are in my future. We just started our registry and are getting started on the nursery soon (much more on that later - our house is about to become a construction zone!)

I've journaled my pregnancy so far in a little notebook, so I may do a little catch up on the first 18 weeks and I'll post a few bump pictures as well. I started showing really early and it's slightly bizarre to have this baby bump already! Here's my bump from Christmas Day at 18 weeks:

Happy New Year!!

Christmas List

Wow, I'm really sucking in the blogging department! I promise I'll be better in the New Year! Since Christmas is now 6 days away (WHAT?!?!), I thought I would share what's on my list this year. Tomorrow I'll share my favorite gifts that I'm giving this year.J and I decided we aren't really doing presents this year and will both just upgrade to an iPhone 4s right after Christmas. So excited - I think I'm most excited to pick out a cute case for it!Clarisonic Mia (in pink of course). I've heard awesome things about this little brush - and it's the perfect size to fit in my stocking!A calligraphy address stamper - love this one from etsy!I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I LOVE tea, so this is the perfect coffee maker for me and J. He can get his coffee and I can have my tea and oatmeal. A Kindle Fire - I'm all about the tech gifts this year!Yes, I realize it's almost 2012 and I'm asking for a pizza stone - we're a little behind the times on this one. But we realized that we eat a lot of homemade pizza!

So hopefully Santa will put some of these under the tree for me this year. What is on your list?
