Eat Drink & Be Mary: 2017

Baby T is a...


If you missed our announcement on Instagram this week, we had our geneder veal and...it's a boy!! 

side note: earlier on in the pregnancy I was pretty convinced it was a girl, and around October I started waivering and considering it was  boy.  But about a week before our 20 week ultrasound I was suddenly convinced it was a little boy growing in there, and whaddya know.  


When we first decided to do a gender reveal, I loved the excitement and build up of it all (and picture opportunity), and finding out with our families sounded like so much fun.  BUT I didn't want an over the top, everybody and their mama invited, stressing over the decorations and all event.  And I have to admit what we came up with was pretty darn perfect.

Our 20 week appointment was Tuesday, and we gave the gender scan to Thomas' friend the next day so he could fill the balloon up with the correct color paint and his girlfriend could make the cake.  Thankfully, neither one cracked or spilled the beans before Sunday.

We did the reveal first thing, and Thomas said shooting the balloon he was even more nervous than he had ever been with a deer.  And ever since I've been tickled pink to know we have a little man on the way.  

side note: all the girls, my brother-in-law and father-in-law guessed girl.  Myself and all the rest of the boys guessed girl.  

Once my eyes saw that blue paint, I screamed and Thomas threw up his hands in excitement.  I cried a couple tears of joy, and honestly, I almost started crying before he shot the balloon I was just so darn excited to find out about our little one. And then we took pictures and relaxed and hung out with our families.  








all the happy tears!









At the reveal we had both of our families, and the friends that set up the balloon with paint and the cake.  The only decorations we used were the balloons on each side of the hay bale, and since everyone ate brunch prior we only had a couple desserts to snack on.  Seriously y'all, perfection.

My mom and I made blondies with pink and blue chocolate drops, my SIL make these delicious sausage and cream cheese croissants (that I definitely need to share on here), and Morgan made us the most gorgeous cake with ombre blue inside for our little man.  She may not know it yet, but she's basically going to be our family's official cake go-to now.  ;)



And now let the shopping for our little man begin.  Give me all the baby boy stuff!  Send your suggestions of sites/shops I should check out in the comments.

Baby T Week 20

distressed skinny jeans | Pink Blush Maternity

Due Date | March 25, 2018 BUT my guess is our little one will make their appearance March 31st.

Size | Baby T is the size of a banana at 10 inches (starting this week baby is measured from head to toe instead of head to rump) and 10.5 ounces.

Gender | we will find out with our families on Sunday (so keep your eyes on the lookout on Instagram) BUT until then I wanna know your guess; leave it in the comments below.  Is Baby T a boy or girl?

Thomas' guess: boy & has been since day 1

My guess: boy, something has come over me this past week and I'm pretty convinced it's a little boy in there


Symptoms |  heartburn and the never ending trips to the bathroom..

Cravings/Aversions |  still wanting lots of candy and Mexican food too, but no strong cravings or aversions

Hormones | Possibly less moody this week?  But Thomas might be the better judge of that.  ;)

Weight |  +10 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight.  I'm not gonna lie this kinda freaked me out, but my doctor was very happy with this so as long as it's healthy for the little babe I'm trying not to worry too much.

Clothing |  I can still fit it all my normal clothes, however, button my jeans (that started pretty tight) is a struggle and fitting into my work pants is a struggle.  So I'm using the "hair band trick" on my jeans as well as the maternity pairs I purchased and am on the look out for some maternity work pants.

Sleep | I pretty much toss and turn all night long and have the strangest dreams.  BUT this past week I had two more dreams that baby was a girl and they felt pretty real.  She had A LOT of dark hair too.  

Nursery | I can't wait to share my ideas, only a couple more D A Y S until we know if we'll be working on a baby boy or girl nursery--eek!

Purchases | I've bought two maternity jeans from Pink Blush (one pictured in the weekly pictures) and I am TOTALLY sold.  I also, ordered a dress from them for our Christmas card photos at the end of this month.  Still no baby purchases but after this weekend we'll know the gender and the buying will begin!

Fun Fact | At 20 weeks our little one is halfway done baking and has working taste buds now.






Best Moment of The Week | We got to see our little babe Tuesday at the anatomy scan.  And y'all I am 100% in love with the little face, profile and nose.  Baby T wasn't very active during the ultrasound, but she switched to a 3D mode for us to see the face and I swear it is THE CUTEST face I've ever seen.  I can't wait to see it on this side of my belly.  

Looking Forward To | Finding out the gender at our family gender reveal Sunday.  I can hardly wait.  Only FOUR more days!!

Next Apt. |  December 6th -- we're doing the hour long diabetes scan.

Baby T Week 18 & 19

week 18 

Due Date | March 25, 2018

Size | Baby T is the size of a mango or game boy at 6 inches and 8.5 ounces

Gender | less 2 more weeks until we find out!!

Thomas' guess: boy & has been since day 1

My guess: I was 100% certain it was a girl at first, then started leaning towards boy, now I'm back to having no clue.  So much for mother's intuition  But every time I daydream about when the baby will be here I always picture a girl.

Week 18

Symptoms
 | heartburn and peeing all the time are still regulars around here

Cravings/Aversions | all the sweets and candy..luckily for me we'll get some of our niece and nephews Halloween loot

Hormones | Moody moody.  Poor Thomas and poor 6th grade students -- although not really cause those students deserve it

Weight | +2.4 pounds as of my last appointment, I'll update next week after I go back to the doctors

Clothing | same as before -- still rocking the chubby look rather than pregnant.  But my jeans and work pants are getting too tight and I'm rocking the hair band trick and I order two pairs of jeans online this weekend.  

Sleep | I was never a back sleeper before getting pregnant, but now all I wanna do is sleep on my back (which is not recommended) and even though I fall asleep on my side I still wake up on my back every. time.  Also, still waking up every 2-3 hours to pee.

Nursery | I can't wait to share my ideas, only a couple more weeks until we know what we're working with.

Purchases | A SUPER cute Halloween outfit on sale that is gender neutral only because I couldn't pass up the deal.  I am going crazy not being able to buy anything BUT holding off until after our gender reveal.

Fun Fact | Our little babe can hear our voices and is practicing sucking his/her thumb.

Best Moment of The Week/Looking Forward To | I have officially started to feel the little one move and I love it.  The best way to describe it is like I'm being thumped from inside.  And as the week has progressed its happening more frequently.  Occasionally at night there will be one super hard kick and every night it catches me off guard.

Next Apt. | November 7th - anatomy & gender scan eek!!

Gender | we won't be finding out until November

Symptoms |heartburn, nighttime nausea, gagging while brushing my teeth and peeing all the time are still regulars around here.

Hormones | Thomas is sticking with I'm moody, so yeah...

Weight | +2.4 pounds 

Clothing | Still wearing tight clothes for my weekly pictures and still looking more chubby than pregnant.  BUT although I wouldn't say I'm showing my belly definitely looks different than before I became pregnant.

is this tee not the cutest?  my best friends made it for me.

Fun Fact | Baby T is moving all around in his/her cozy little home and hopefully soon I'll be able to feel all that movement.  Also Baby T can hear all the sounds I make -- poor kid hears a lot of "be quiet" "be calm" and "did you raise your hand" all day long ;)

Best Moment of The Week/Looking Foward To | hearing our sweet ones heartbeat at yesterday's apt. was the sweetest sound

Next Apt. | November 7th - anatomy & gender scan eek!!

Baby T Week 14

Hello Second Trimester.  To be honest I'm not sure if week 13 or 14 is the beginning of this trimester, but either way we made it!  So here this goes...



Due Date | March 25, 2018

Size | Baby T is the size of a twinkie or large lemon -- approx. 3.4 inches and 1.5 oz

Gender | we won't be finding out until November

Symptoms | the heartburn, oh the heartburn.  still nauseas at night or if I get too hungry.

Cravings/Aversions | pretty much all meat sounds gross with the rare occassion of a yummy hamburger or steak.  As far as cravings I'm all about carbs still and Zaxby's white cheddar bites.  Also, I eat cereal and breakfast sandwiches like they're going out of style.

I also had an INTENSE craving for Olive Garden's fettucine alfredo, as in I felt like I could taste it right then and there.

Hormones | the other day we were going through the old wives tales and I asked Thomas if he would say I've been more moody or happy and he said Moody without much hesitation..so there's that ;)

Weight | none so far

Clothing | I have to wear pretty tight clothing for my weekly pictures so you can see the difference each week, and you cant really tell at all in my normal clothes.  So I have a feeling maternity clothes are not in the near future..however my SIL did give me a lot of hers.

Sleep | Getting comfortable is easy, but I love sleeping on my back/belly so that'll all be coming to an end soon.  BUT waking up every 2-3 hours to pee is getting old real quick.

Nursery | I have ideas for boy or girl but nothing will be done until we know the gender for sure.



Purchases | so far the only things we've bought are a pair of moccasins for pictures, curtains for the nursery (regardless of gender) and THE CUTEST elephant paci-plushie.

Fun Fact | Baby T can now smile, frown, squint and suck his/her thumb.  

Best Moment of The Week/Looking Foward To | my parents are coming this weekend and I can't wait!

Next Apt. | October 10th
