Back to Reality


So we're back from our babymoon in AZ. It was a short but sweet, and worth every penny. I realized while we there, that this would be hubby and my last trip pre-Skooter. Which is not to say we won't travel alone once he gets here, but it will be our last trip where its just us two. I'm guessing all future vacays in the back of our minds we'll be missing/worrying/excited to get back to our baby. It made me also realize how much I'm going to soak up these last couple months of just hubby and me time, before Skooter is welcomed to our little family! Don't get me wrong, I'm literally counting the minutes to his/her arrival...but change is change, and I think it was just a reminder to soak up my quality time with hubby these next two months.

In any case, the vacay was great! The hotel was amazing, the spa even better...I had a prenatal and facial. It was SO weird to lay on my stomach on the little bump pillow they had on the table. I must say normally I hate when the masseuse is like okay, time to flip over....cause you know the good part of the massage is over. But this time, I was more than ready to get on my back...I felt like I was crushing poor little Skooter!! It probably also didn't help I had just eaten lunch and Skooter was moving like crazy the whole time.

We laid by the pool, ate tons of good food (i'm a little nervous for my next weigh in at the dr, hah), and drank lots of fun drinks poolside. Again, I don't think the virgin pina coladas I was downing were doing much for my waistline...but dang they were good, even without the booze! We talked a LOT about Skooter, mostly going back and forth if Skooter is a boy or a girl. We have names officially ironed out. To be honest we've known them since this summer, but we went through the options one last time and have agreed on both...which we won't be sharing with anyone until Skooter is here, no matter how much our mom's beg us!

So in other news now that we're back and now that November is here its officially baby month for us! This Sunday marks the first of three baby showers I'm having, all in November. And Saturday we're heading downtown all day for our baby class at the hospital where we're delivering. I'm super excited to get a lay of the land, and see exactly where Skooter is going to make his/her arrival. Hope everyone is having a good week, time for some major blog catch up!

It sounds like a great time, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I've been feeling the same way as you - I'm excited to see our baby but at the same time I'm really trying to treasure each day it's just DH & myself. I realize each day when I walk out the door I don't have to worry about a baby sitter or when I need to be back home or making sure I have enough diapers with me...it's all about to change!

You look fantastic! I am so glad you had a great time. I am jealous that you have the names. I know I have plenty of time, but as time passes we just get further and further away from deciding on one (or two).
Cannot wait to see how the house is coming along!

So glad you had a nice babymoon! Looks beautiful! I had a prenatal massage this week and felt the exact same way about flipping over...it felt so weird to be laying on my stomach.

Welcome home :)

So happy I stumbled across your blog! :)
A babymoon sounds divine, and yours sure looks like it was a treat! Will definitely continue following your journey and can't wait to meet little skooter :)

It is great that you took that last little vacation with just the two of you before the baby comes. We did that too and loved it. While you can travel with the baby after they arrive, it totally changes things and how far you are willing to go and how much you are willing to do. It is all totally worth it though.

I just stumbled across your blog, and I noticed you went to Scottsdale on your babymoon. We were thinking of going there also, and I was wondering where you stayed and if you liked it.
Congrats on the baby! Have a happy holiday season!
