Adley Nicole Millett is here!! She was born on August 3, 2012 at 2:04 pm. She weighed 8lbs 11oz and 21 inches long. She is a healthy beautiful baby girl and Kyle and I are so in love with her! She brings so much joy into our lives and we are just enjoying every minute we get with her.
Sorry for the picture overload but Kyle and I just got our maternity pictures back and I am in LOVE with them!! These were taken when I was 32 weeks and Marissa did an amazing job!! Marissa D Photography is the best! If any of you want pictures taken I highly recommend having her be your photographer. Marissa is a family friend of Kyles and she is an awesome photographer. She was so much fun to work with too. I had a hard time at first being in front of the camera alone and she knew exactly what to do to make me feel comfortable. Hope you guys enjoy these as much as we do!!
Here is a picture of me at 24 and 28 weeks pregnant. I am now almost 32 weeks so I'm a little behind at keeping this updated. Being pregnant has been such a different kind of experience. I have been so lucky to have a normal easy going pregnancy. I haven't had any complications and our little girl is active and very healthy. I think my favorite part of being pregnant is feeling her move. Kyle thinks it's crazy when he seems my belly move or jump and can't imagine the feeling and it's true. it is such a different feeling and something thats very hard to describe other than amazing! Sometimes she gets into my ribs so I have to push her out and thats not always the best feeling, but knowing that she is healthy makes it all worth it. I am now at the point where I have to count how many times she kicks. She has to kick 10 times in an hour and if she doesn't I have to go to the hospital to get monitored. let me tell you it is the most nerve racking thing ever!! Like I said before she is very active but when I pay attention to her kicks and count them she keeps still. I get so nervous when I don't feel her! I hate this part because I am such a worrier and the thought of something being wrong with her because she's not moving freaks me out! When I talk to other moms about it they always tell me they felt the same way so I know I'm not the only one. I can tell I'm already a parent because I constantly worry about this little girl! Im coming towards the end of my pregnancy and I won't lie the swollen feet, back pains and feeling huge are not things I am going to miss, but having her constantly with me and knowing that she is safe at all times is something that I will miss. I am so excited to hold and kiss her though so the next 8 weeks need to speed up!! =)
Kyle and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary yesterday. It's hard to believe that it has been 2 years since we got married!! Kyle ended up having the day off from work so we were able to spend the whole day together. Our day started off with Kyle letting me sleep in while he went to 2 doctors appointments. He has been having some chest pains lately so to be safe I made him make an appointment to get it checked out. After a few tests and a full physical Kyle is fine. The Dr wants him to see a cardiologist to make sure but he's confident that everything is great and they won't find anything wrong. What a relief it is to hear that Kyle's healthy and everything's ok. The other appointment he had was with the orthodontist. Kyle has been complaining about his teeth shifting so his mom made an appointment for him to see the Dr. she works for. Kyle only thought he was going in for a consultation but he ended up walking out with braces on his bottom teeth. It's such a blessing that Kyle's mom works for an orthodontist because him having braces is no cost for us. Thanks mom!! =) So when Kyle got home from his eventful morning our anniversary celebration started. Kyle took me to see the movie Mirror Mirror. It was such a cute movie I recommend seeing it. After the movie Kyle didn't want to go home so he took me to go play mini golf at King Putt. It was so nice going on a Tuesday afternoon because the place was pretty much empty so we were able to be silly and take fun pictures without bugging anyone. haha Im not very good at golf but I didn't do too bad. I even beat Kyle and he goes golfing with my dad all the time so I felt pretty good!! =) For this anniversary we didn't want to spend a ton of money on dinner or on activities. We have a little one on the way so we need to be saving as much as we can right now. So instead of going out to dinner we decided we would make dinner together at home. I found a few yummy recipes on Pinterest that I wanted to try so for dinner we made lasagna in a skillet. It actually turned out really good and it wasn't hard to make at all. It actually might be something I make more often. For dessert we had chocolate covered strawberries. On our wedding day we were lucky enough to have my cousin make us a video of the whole day. It is so nice to go back on every anniversary and watch our special day. Watching our wedding video together was such a fun ending to our day. It brought back so many fun memories. It was fun watching it and talking about what we were thinking at that very moment. We were both so nervous that we couldn't even enjoy the yummy food at our reception. haha Our wedding day was perfect! Everything went completely as planned and we couldn't have asked for better people to share it with. It's so crazy to think that all of that was 2 years ago! The time has gone by really fast. I feel so lucky to be married to my best friend. Kyle is such an amazing husband and I can't wait to share many more anniversaries with him in the future.
Kyle and I found out we are going to be parents to a sweet little GIRL!! Our little girl was being modest at our ultrasound and didn't want to open her legs but once she did it was very clear that she's a girl!! We are both so excited and can't wait for her to be here. She is measuring perfectly so far. The Dr. did say though that she has very long legs but I'm not surprised since she has me for a mommy. I can now feel her moving around and it is the best feeling ever! When I felt her for the first time I wasn't sure if it was her but now it's clear as day! Im feeling her all the time now and she is a very active little girl! Here I am at 20 weeks and 5 days. I am officially half way through my pregnancy! Only 20 more weeks and we get to meet our little girl!!
Here I am at 15 weeks pregnant. I am now almost 17 weeks but in my opinion my belly hasn't changed a whole lot. I am finally in my 2nd trimester and it has been so much better than my first! In my first trimester I was nauseous all the time and could only eat fruit and very bland food. I ended up losing about 10 lbs in my first trimester. Now that im in my second I am able to eat more of a variety which has been really nice! We find out the gender on March 12th and I CANT WAIT!!!
So I need to brag for a minute about how freakin cute my nephew Max is. My brother sent me some of his 6 month pictures and I am in love!! I absolutely LOVE this little boy!! He is all smiles and even when he cries he still looks so dang cute!! My brother and his family moved to St. George when Max was only a few months old so I haven't been able to see him as often as I would like to so I really miss this little man. I mean really how can you not love this face!?!?!? I think it's time for me to take a trip to St George so I can see my cute nephew! Thanks Matt for sharing these cute pics!!
