Movement and more!

I am now 17 weeks pregnant and really starting to feel little Mr. Holden moving these days. I have been feeling him for a few weeks now (starting at around 14 weeks) but he has gotten really strong and active recently. It used to be that I would only feel him when I laid down in bed at night, but now I feel him numerous times a day. IT IS AWESOME!  I just loving being able to feel him kicking and flipping. I don't even use my doppler 20 times each day anymore. It's very reassuring.

Thanks to the second trimester, I've also finally gotten some of my energy back and actually cleaned my house yesterday ***GASP***. I also did laundry and more than just one outfit at a time, I did a whole LOAD!! HAHA!! In case you cant tell, I'm pretty proud of myself.

In other exciting news, Mike got a promotion!! It was only about 11 months ago that he got out of the Army and took this new job. After a few months of training, he was the new guy so he was placed on night shift. 11pm-7am. I'm not sure if I complained about 3rd shift on here before but it SUCKED!! He kinda liked it, but I hated it. He slept all day and his schedule was all messed up even on his days off.

Well this new promotion is super exciting because...
1) No more nights!!! He is back to good 'ole business hours. M-F 7am-4pm.

2) More Money! Who doesn't like more money :) Oh and he told me the other day that we can get a maid (once every 2 weeks) to help with the cleaning while I'm pregnant. I am so stinking excited. I might be a stay at home mom, but I SUCK at the deep cleaning around the house. Surface cleaning I can do, but having someone to do the baseboards, windows, showers, ect...will really help me out.

3) Because I'm super proud of him! He got a promotion after only being at the company for 10 months. How awesome is that? He definitely earned it though. He worked his tail off since he has been with the company.

Anyway, I will leave you with a few funny maternity t-shirts that I stumbled across the other day while surfing the interwebz.

And this one which really creeps me out for some reason.

Ok that last t-shirt is SO disturbing! lol!

I'm glad Mr. Holden is making his presence known. It is so fun to feel them moving around!
