growing baby and belly

20 weeks!! I feel like just yesterday, we found out we were having a baby, and already we have reached the half-way mark.  Time is moving so quickly, and while I'm so excited to meet Mav, I feel like time is passing TOO quickly.  If pregnancy goes this fast, I can only imagine how fast it will go once he is finally here! Is it pathetic that I'm already sad about him growing up?? I just want to enjoy every moment, and keep him little forever.  With each passing day, my love for little Maverick grows, and I am humbled by the opportunity to be his mommy.

 Pregnancy these days is much better than before.  Around week 13, my sickness was completely gone.  About week 16, I finally felt some of my energy return.  And week 19, finding out it was a little boy growing inside me has just made this so much more real.  He is very active, and moves most of the day.  His strongest little kicks are usually in the afternoon or once I get into bed at night.  Jeremy finally got to feel him move a couple of weeks ago, and that was just so much fun! The only real "cravings" i've had usually pass after I've eaten whatever it was that I wanted-- so nothing real consistent.  However, chick-fil-a, chips and queso, sonic hotdogs, popcorn, grapes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and Jeremy grilling burgers ALWAYS sounds good.  But to Jeremy's delight, I have been pretty diverse in food choices, so he's not eating the same things over and over.  

Here's some of our newest pictures of Maverick Jude.  He's already such a little cutie :)

Excited for the weeks to come!

Time flies

I can't believe my time at OSU-OKC has already come to an end.  Two years ago, when I started the American Sign Language program, I thought it would never end.  Many times I wasn't sure I would ever be able to figure out this new language, but with help from the best professor ever, and some great friends, we all made it through! I'm excited to see what the future has in store, and pray that God would give me opportunities to use ASL one day.  Thanks for a great time, OSU!

Its a BOY!

Last week, my sister threw us the best gender reveal party to find out if Baby Davis was a little fellow or a little miss! We had our doctor's appointment that morning, and could not wait until 7 o'clock that night to find out what we were having.  
My sister did such a good job with all the cute decorations, and had everyone vote for girl or boy when they arrived at the party.  Little mustaches and red lips were everywhere-- it was just so cute!
So many of our family and friends came out to celebrate with us, and we had a wonderful night!

Maverick Jude Davis is already loved so much, and we can't wait to meet him! So many people already love him, and Jeremy and I are so thankful he will have so many awesome people in his life! Here's some party pics from the rest of the night...

The countdown to October is definitely on... I just can't wait to see his little face and hold him and welcome him into this world!
