Happy end of the year everyone! This is me today at 5 months :) now it's more like 21 weeks and counting. God has blessed me so much! I am truly thankful. How was Christmas everyone? Our was fabulous! It was good to spend time with family. We went shopping but for groceries. We found more Brazilian products, which was a lot of fun. My niece was hyper the whole time :) What else can you expect from a 1 and a half year-old??? She's a cutie. She was dancing a lot and singing a little bit too. It was super cute.

I wanted to tell yall that Zeke felt the baby moving last night! His movements are becoming way stronger, that's exciting. During the sermon at church he was moving a lot, it was like his whole little body was moving! I believe he is a Word man, that's why :) Zeke felt him moving at night when we were watching television :) That was really exciting.

Going back to exercise: my goal this week is to get to the gym 3 times at least and lift weights at least twice. Last week I went zero times... I honestly had a mindset that the week would be a busy one anyway, and I repented after I went for a doctor's visit and saw my weight. The good thing was that sedentary is not a description of my week. We cooked and cleaned daily. We danced with my niece, we were active although taking a walk never hurts. I just get back to it today, no worries! No worries about eating great Brazilian Christmas food either. It's Christmas, not my regular diet!

My birthday is Saturday. We are singing at a wedding smack in the middle of the day. I'm glad it's in the middle of the day and not at night. I have to find a dress still. I'm looking forward to seeing what Zeke has prepared. Right now I have no clue. I mean, not that many clues LOL. I'm gonna be 29. We're excited about having our son in our 20s :) Everyone else will come in our 30s but I'm so glad we had one in our 20s!

Oh, we bought maternity clothes!!! I'm still missing a few pieces but I got great things. I feel SO much better! It's awesome to feel comfortable while looking good. Thank God for my caring husband! If it was up to me, I'd go through 9 months with my regular clothes.

I have a feeling that May 8 will be here before we know it. We chose a crib yesterday. The room is coming along well.

I hope you enjoy the New Year, especially cause we have another holiday this week!
