For some reason I keep thinking that something is going to go wrong with this pregnancy b/c it is going sooo smoothly. Anyway, as the weeks have gone by and I can feel her kick and move on a more regular basis, I still haven't TRULY allowed myself to believe this is real and actually connect and commune with my baby. Anyway, Alicia Keys was performing No One on the Today Show and Leilani kicked and moved and I just started BAWLING and rubbing my ever growing belly and FINALLY...FINALLY felt the connection that I have been holding myself back from. This was an amazing experience and I am feeling so wonderful right now. Man, what a morning!
Well we are officially 23 weeks pregnant and I am feeling GREAT! I have been working and travelling ALOT which leads to foot pain and total EXHAUSTION! Other than that I am doing well. Chris is doing well too (at least I hope so) and is dealing with my MINOR (read Medium to Major) mood swings and rudeness (my new nickname is Little Miss Know It All). We went to Home Depot today and got some materials for the baby's closet. So now we just need a few more items, paint a few things and organize her closet, hang some items and the nursery will be done!!!
Good times and I must say I am having a blast watching it all come together!! The next few weekends are going to be busy with homeowners meetings, kickball, our annual Cinco De Mayo party and of course a doctor's appointment here and there.
Oh and her name is officially: Leilani Elizabeth (it's promounced LAY-LA-NEE). Hope to see everyone soon!!
This is a page for Chris and Alana Powers. Living together, totally in love, raising our sweet mini bean, Leilani. She is all that is good in Chris and I and we cannot wait to see who she becomes, while enjoying her every moment as a little being.
