Five On Friday: Bambino Edition

My oh my oh my oh my. Thank you all SO much for the bambino love!

I knew it would be a very special day when we announced our news but you gals just went above and beyond with your love. Makes a girl feel so good. :) 

So today I thought I'd dedicate my Five On Friday to the little pumpkin and answer some questions I've been getting. 

August 30, 4:30am

O N E 
We are due May 5, 2014 ... yes ma'am, Cinco de Mayo! This Spanish major was really overjoyed when I saw that date pop up. Who knows if baby will decide to come early, on time, or late, but there is a definite chance that I might be celebrating with a margarita rather than the bubbly. Additionally, my birthday is 1/1 so the idea of potentially having a 5/5 baby is cute ... both being holidays, too.

Thank you to all who have asked how I am feeling! I have realized that when you are pregnant, the nicest thing anyone can do is just inquire about how you feel. Happy, happy, happy to report -- I have been feeling GREAT. No morning sickness, just a little bit tired sometimes (no major exhaustion though), no big-time food or smell aversions. How fortunate am I?! There's not a day that goes by that I don't thank this baby for being so gentle on his or her mama. I have been making sure to get rest, keep stress in check, and hydrate well.

We will most definitely be finding out the gender, and we already have a date ... November 20th! Three short weeks away my friends, and we will know if Baby R is going to be in tutus or ties. I think we will find out a few days later with some friends and family nearby. Just for the record, Ian's hoping for pink but I'm getting major blue intuitions -- and I work with a girl who, after a quick ring over the hand trick, told me I would have a girl and then a boy but no third child, and assured me that she has never been wrong.

Am I showing ... well, it depends on the day! I am still down three pounds from my starting weight (I am 13 weeks now, by the way) but I definitely have a pooch going, especially after meals. The below photo is from last Wednesday morning, and the one below is from this morning.

I am so touched that many of you said you couldn't wait to follow along with updates. I still plan to post about the topics I normally post about, but I have been writing weekly update posts since week 5 that are all saved as drafts. I will share these on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. You may notice a decrease in cocktail recipes -- shoot, many of you have told me that was your first hint that a baby may be on board -- but other than that, you'll still see a lot of the same content 'round these parts. :)

So, thank you again from the bottom of my grateful heart for all of your love! I guess this means I can finally make one of my baby boards on Pinterest public, so be forewarned!

I think a lot of you know how this works but if you are new to the party, please join this link-up along with me and my beautiful co-hostesses -- DarciNatasha, and Christina. Playing along is simple!  Just write a post about five things on your mind today, anything goes really, post the logo below on your blog, and then enter your post address below in the link-up section. It's a great way of meeting new friends and getting more eyes on your cute blog!

    I just stumbled upon your blog. I have an almost 7 month old daughter and funny enough we found out she was a little girl on November 20th of last year ;) Who knows... maybe it's a sign! :)
    Glad to see you are feeling well!
    Good luck with the pregnancy! What a blessing!

  13. Tutus and ties would make a great theme if you all decided to have a gender reveal party. Glad the pregnancy is going well so far. My two were definitely not gentle on me in the morning sickness department, but having them here made it all worth it!

  23. Oh my goodness, how exciting! I'm behind on blog reading so I'm just seeing your week's posts today - SO happy for y'all! And I'm going to jump on the "I had a feeling" bandwagon, too, mostly because of the lack of cocktail recipes! ;) I can't wait to follow along in your journey and hope you continue to have a smooth pregnancy!

  25. Yay! I'm so excited for you!! I was wondering when this would happen--I had a feeling it would be soon! I'm also very excited to follow along with you in your pregnancy. I was also just as lucky as you with my pregnancy symptoms--I had no morning sickness, no fatigue, no weird smells, or stuff! Now I'm ready to pop any day now.... :)
