Ok, so I really am trying to be better about updating here, especially with so much going on with the pregnancy. Our little man has been kicking ALOT this past week, he's definitly making his presence known! Also, the due date is coming up very quickly, June 14th is actually only 19 weeks (or 131 days to be precise) away, so it's time to really start getting ready! We've bought a few outfits already for the 0-3 month age, and one or two little newborn things so far. We've also gone ahead and set up a registry at Toys R Us if anyone was interested in that, I do know a few people have asked, so there it is. Obviously it's under Emily and Rian Conroy, or you can search under either of the grandmothers, however, you won't be able to search under my dad's name, because according to Toys R Us, the baby is only allowed to have two grandparents! You'll notice on there a decided lack of actual nursery items, which is due to the fact that we won't be setting up a nursery. We'll be using a pack n' play with a bassinet setting, and he'll be bunking in with us until we're ready to move back to the mainland. We're looking forward to setting him up his very own big boy room once we're in a house though, so we'll get to do alot of decorating there. We also really haven't chosen a theme, but have naturally gravitated towards ocean animals (which is really a no brainer with me as his mom!) and the softer colored jungle themes.
Really that's all that's going on this week, so I'll leave you guys with some pictures. I have a doctor's appointment on the 13th, so I'll make sure to update then!
Wow, so much to update on! I'm pretty much just going to put the pictures and a short description. I apologize in advance for the massive amount, and for the blurriness of some!
That's all for now everyone, and I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
That's really all that's happened in the last month, but here's some stuff that's happening this month: As you all know, October is one of my favorite (but busiest!) months, and it's just the gateway into more busy months. Starting with...
October 5th: decorating the house for Halloween. We don't have much stuff (not nearly what we have in Panama City anyway) but it'll still be nice to have a few things up.
October 16th: Hooray for my birthday! I'm very excited, even though we probably won't do anything more thrilling than dinner and cake. We are thinking of renting a kayak and going out on Kaneohe Bay if I'm not working though. I already have my birthday present which is...
October 17th: We're going to The Lion King! Again, extremely exciting, I'm literally bouncing up and down each time it gets brought up. I will have to go buy an appropriate dress for the theater though.
October 29th: Happy Anniversary! It's been two years since our wedding, and to celebrate, we're going to go to the water park and then out to dinner.
And of course, finally, on the 31st is Halloween. I'm working that day, so I won't be able to do much in the way of celebration, but we might go to one of the festivals the weekend before.
After Halloween comes literally, a whirlwind of gift shopping, and wrapping, and packaging, and decorating, and everything else, all fit around Rian's 12 hour a day, 6 day work weeks, but we should be able to carve out some time for fun. I already have most of the gifts chosen, and a schedule for buying them, so hopefully (I said hopefully, not definitly, so don't get too excited) presents will be on time this year. I also still have the Christmas cards that you all never got last year, so I can start filling those out soon. Nobody is allowed to move between now and Christmas by the way :).
Anyway, I think that's all for now
Today we went to the beach, and FINALLY took some pictures! The beach we're at is Waimea Bay beach park, and it's really beautiful. The colors today weren't as stunning as normal, because it was a bit on the cloudy side, but it was still nice. The sad part is we only have a couple more chances to get up to this beach, because it's on the North Shore, so the surf will start picking up quite a bit soon. Anyway, the pictures are mostly self explanatory, so I'll just stick them up here without a running commentary.
Oh, also, due to the obscenely long shipping time... we are starting our Christmas shopping in 2 weeks. If you are on my list and don't send me a wish list by then, you risk getting a $2 t-shirt and a coconut. I'm seriously not kidding this year people. Lists, por favor. You're all insanely difficult to shop for, and I know where the coconut stand is at the swap meet! :P
Anyway, that's really all for now, I have a plan that involves more pictures next weekend, and if you're really really good, maybe the weekend after that.
