not to much going on...

well, it's been a while... not a whole lot going on. i haven't held on to my promise of weekly pictures but i promise to try to do better! i'm planning on taking some this afternoon but since i haven't showered yet that will have to wait! trust me, you don't want to see that! olivia jane is doing fine (i think). i'm not really feeling her move but the doc isn't concerned. i guess the few extra pounds i had put on before getting pregnant are adding an extra layer for her to kick through! until i can get some new pics i'll leave you with some old ones...
this was taken this past june at merideth and montana's wedding

this was last november. a group of us went to the new kids on the block concert in dallas!

in dc at the fireworks on the national mall. actually, we were on the lawn of the capital but you get the point.

dancing queen...

at 20 weeks pregger i thought i would start feeling baby hamby move around. for the past week or two i thought i felt something which turned out to be nothing really. well, i was wide awake at 4 am this morning and about 4:15 i felt it. baby hamby definately kicked me. since i'm sure baby hamby is a girl i assume she was dancing around in there! i waited about 30 minutes or so b/c i didn't want to wake rett up...but, then he started snoring so that was my chance. i nudged him (that makes him quit snoring at least for a few) and made sure he was awake and then told him. needles to say i didn't get much sleep last night. that's been my m.o. for the past week. i'm always up for at least an hour or two in the middle of the night. rett says to get used to it; i may not sleep through the night for the next year! help! those of you that know me know that i require a minimum of 8 hours of sleep per night or i'm not much fun to be around. therefore i took a nap on the couch this afternoon! i guess that's it for now... back to work tomorrow.

lazy saturday morning...

it's about 10 am on sat morning and i'm watching the movie "hoosiers". remember that one? rett's hunting; his alarm went off at 3:30 this morning and i all but kicked him out of the bed. what is it about boys and hunting? i just don't understand it. but, if that's what makes them happy...getting up before dawn, sitting in the cold and maybe (or in this case, maybe not) seeing ducks. to each his own! thought i'd post some pics of us at the independence bowl from the end of january. we had awesome seats...50 yard line, 11 or 12 rows up. couldn't ask for better! enjoy!
me and rett before the game

me, dad, jackie at the game

on the pregnancy side of things...i hit the 20 week mark yesterday! we started taking pics to remember this time. below you'll see me at exactly 20 weeks. are you supposed to be this big this early on? notice the bulging t-shirt. i'm not sure they'll make clothes big enough for me by the time this is over. other than just growing i'm doing good. no real complaints other than heartburn and headaches. i'm not sure about you but i've never had heartburn before. i didn't know that's what it was. rett had to inform me that the burning in my throat and chest was in fact heartburn. i know i can't complain, from all accounts this had been one EASY pregnancy so far. let's hope it continues on this path. please forgive the oily skin and bad hair. this pic was taken late friday night. i'll try to do better in the coming weeks!

20 weeks
now i'm going to finish watching this movie (they've made it to the state championship game now. i can't remember what happens but i would assume they win) and try to be productive the rest of the day. got lots to do to get ready for this little one. have a great weekend!
