27 Weeks and Counting

26 weeks
     So I realize that every post I begin with "I'm sorry it's been so long since I last updated my blog...", but I haven't even updated this since we got pregnant which was a long time ago.  Well for a baby update, I am currently 27 weeks and now going to the doctor every 3 weeks.  For anyone who does not know yet, it is a girl!  As of now her name is going to be Jaycee Kay.  Kay was my mom's middle name so that is where that is from, and Kay just so happens to be Justin's grandma's name and our neighbor's.  As for Jaycee it is just the first and only name that we both fell in love with or actually that we could even come close to agreeing on.
     I have been extremely lucky and blessed throughout the past 27 weeks.  I have not been sick whatsoever, I really do not think I have experienced any crazy mood swings (maybe you should ask Justin just to make sure on that lol), I have not really had any cravings just once in a while Allsup burritos, and I am not seeming to be gaining much weight except my belly is finally growing.  Speaking of belly growing, I have been maternity clothes shopping a few times and Wow! maternity clothes really scare me!  I feel like they all look so huge and not very cute plus I just cannot see spending so much on clothes that I'll only wear for a few months.  So hopefully I get over this fear soon or I will be wearing the same outfit everyday.
     I realized this past week that I just really hate painting now, it does wear me out like crazy.  Luckily Devanee came last week and helped me paint the nursery.  I am almost done with all the painting in the room so I will try to take pictures and post ASAP.  The baby's room is a wreck right now.  Jaycee is going to be living in our guest room so we still have to move out this gigantic bed we have in there that takes up the whole room and move a lot of furniture out.  Jaycee's crib and changing table are living in hall and kitchen at the moment so hopefully we can get a place for all our other stuff SOON! 
     There really isn't too much going on in our lives right now except trying to get ready for this baby.  We still have all our wheat pasture cattle but we won't be too busy with them for another couple weeks when we start shipping.  Justin finally finished his pilot's license and is an official pilot!  Since then Justin has been flying any chance he gets.  I have got to go a couple times with him and I'll have to say he is a pretty good pilot! I'm so proud of him for getting all of that finished!  I had no idea there was so much to getting your pilot's license.  It takes a lot of work.  There are so many hours you have to have with an instructor, by yourself, and on trips.  There is a hard written test that you have to score high on.  Then an official check ride test with a pilot and an oral test on top of that!  So it is amazing that Justin could get all of that done and passed with flying colors so soon!  I'm so blessed to be married to such a talented man.  I think he can drive, operate, or fly just about anything.    

 This is the most recent picture I have of me and Justin together.  This was at Kalee's wedding at the first of January.  I was 21 weeks then.
