Can’t believe a year …

9 Jul

..has gone by!

Turtle and I celebrated one year anniversary on Sunday.  Amazing how fast time flies.  I took the time to reflect on all the lessons I hadlearned the past year.  Marriage has taught me that it ain’t always about you.  In many cases, it is never about you.  It has taught me patience and that is important to listen.  It has taught me that your spouse is not the enemy.  It has made me a better person.  I have learned to keep my mouth shut because you lose nothing my doing so. (Thanks mom).

We went to church and had dinner at a local restaurant.  All in all, it was a nice day.  Turtle gave me a small anniversary gift.  It damn near made me cry:


Then we opened and ate the top of our wedding cake which we had frozen:


But lately, I have been feeling great!  It is like God finally pushed the suffering pause button and is allowing me to “enjoy” my pregnancy.  If ever there is such a thing. I have no aches or pains, I sleep fine, baby is growing fine, I eat reasonably and have had no swelling anywhere.  Yesterday, my doctor said I was one heck of a healthy pregnant woman.  The nugget aka Turtilla (as christened by Ginger) has been kicking up a storm.  His most favorite position is keeping his feet lodged in my rib cage.  His hiccups are daily and I wonder if the poor thing is just uncomfortable.  I hate hiccups.


Over the July 4 holiday, we went to Rochacha for Turtle’s dad’s birthday and our wedding shower.  Good times:Shower

Meanwhile, mama got busy making onesies for the nugget:SAMSUNGI had more alphabets available so I made another one:

    When you say ‘make onesies’ do you mean cutting and sewing or buying em? Let me start doffing my hat…hail Lucid.

    Happy Anniversary to you and Turtle. I pray that you continue to grow in love and faith in each other.
