Quick little update

Well I am exactly two weeks from my due date. {yay!} 
This pregnancy has been so so blessed but these past few weeks I have been exhausted! 
And if I am totally honest today I have been lounging around watching Netflix all day (except I had to run after Sophia when she ran after a cat this morning -- not fun!)

I am so so ready to have this little baby boy and see his beautiful face. I can't wait to see my husband hold him. Oh, I am excited! 

God has really been working on my heart and in my marriage. It has been truly great. Expecting this precious gift has opened my eyes even more to the beauty, grace, and love from The Lord. Baby V makes me want to be the best mother, wife, and woman of God I can be. It makes me want to live a certain way that will encourage him to live the same someday. (: 

14 more days and love, Monica

Bumpdate {35 weeks}

Happy Tuesday lovelies! 

Did you know that grapes are poisonous to dogs? 
Ya... Neither did I! Sophia ate two and although the vet said she would have to eat a pound of grapes for it to be toxic I gave her some tums just in case. Goodness! Oh! And I cried {just staying honest}.

This week my Mr. has been working like CRAZY! He worked straight through the weekend and working all this week too. He is tired but I am so proud of him for all he does! I am planning a super yummy breakfast for him for Saturday. (: 

We are getting closer and closer to meeting baby v and I am just so so excited!
