Baby Morphing Schenanigans!

On this lazy Sunday afternoon I got the idea to "morph" Jason and I together to see what Miss Blaykleigh will look like! It was rather entertaining. Not sure who our morph child resembles, if either of us?! Enjoy. 

A child that is supposed to be our future daughter! 
Only time will tell.

OH me, OH my-baby shoes!

I think I have a new website (SHOES!!!!!!!!!!) that I am in L-O-V-E with. Talk about the most precious baby shoes I have ever seen!!! 

Here are a few of my favorites: 

Ooooooh I may have a new obsession! This can NOT be good.  

Note to self: start a Blaykleigh shoe fund, who needs a college fund when you have sassy kicks like these anyhow?! (totally KIDDING ... kind of!)

Pregnancy Dreams

So I thought I would share a laugh or two on here.

Pregnancy dreams are that of the STRANGEST dreams I think I have ever had! I read and have heard stories to expect something of the sort but never did I vision myself having some of the dreams that I do.

There is the every so often reoccurring dream of me nursing kittens; one after the other as if I am some type of milk making factory! The first time I had this dream, I was kind of embarrassed to tell Jason because it just felt so unnatural in my “awake” state of mind. But I ended up sharing it with him anyhow. After having this dream more than once, I decided to “google” it and found the following on –

“The presence of friendly animals — rare and charming creatures in dreams — is generally thought to represent a good relationship between the dreamer and his or her instincts. In the dreams of many pregnant women, animals are frequently cuddly and cute. Your feeling about the animal or baby reveals something about your attitude at the time of the dream.”

Thus perhaps me dreaming about nursing kittens isn’t so crazy after all?! However the strangest dream of them all might say otherwise. This dream started off with Jason and I enjoying a nice dinner out, when he asks me how the baby is growing and if she is happy. Without hesitation I take the knife off the table and cut my stomach open from side to side, pull Blaykleigh out of my stomach and begin to play with her right there at the dinner table showing Jason just how beautiful she is! Then as a few minutes pass I tell him it’s probably not good for her to be out this long and that it’s time to put her back in so she can finish growing. I promptly ask the waiter for some foil (yes I said it foil, as in aluminum foil) and when he brings it back to the table I carefully wrap her in the foil and place her back in my stomach! All seemed completely normal in my dream but when I awoke to the afterthoughts I couldn’t help but laugh as creepy as some of it seemed. Apparently putting her back in my belly to “grow” resembled something like that of baking a potato???

Hello All!

Now that Jason and I have said our “I do’s” we thought it would be nice to create a blog so that all our family and friends whom are outside the Texas border (and those within) could keep up with all the happenings in our life! Especially the ever growing baby bump and all the joyous moments to come once our precious Blaykleigh is born! Even with all the miles in-between, we hope that this blog will allow y’all to feel like a part of our journey as we both experience life together as newlyweds AND as we encounter the world of “parenthood”! I will do my best to post stuff on here as much as possible so don’t forget to check for updates.  

P.S. - please excuse the somewhat blurry blog header, kind of new at this and don't really know all the tricks of the trade just yet! Hopefully I can figure it out sooner than later. 

Much love,
