Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Crazy Baby Dreams

They say crazy baby dreams are normal when you are pregnant, but I had no idea! Stephen and I have both had some pretty funny dreams in the last week that I'd thought I'd share.

I had the following dreams:
1- Stephen and I left the house to go out for the day and forgot we had a baby! We left Preston asleep in his crib with nursery rhymes playing. After being gone for several hours, we realized what we had done and rushed home. We found Preston in his crib, just hanging out. We were talking to him apologizing and he (yes Preston) said, "It's okay mom I just had to start the music over. I kind-of like the country music better." hahaha

2- I dreamt I was changing his diaper and after I finished I couldn't find the dirty one I had taken off. I looked at Preston and asked him, "Did I put the dirty one back on you?!" He just looked at me like, silly mom and nodded his head yes.

3- Again as a little infant I dreamt I was holding lil Preston and he wanted to get his daddy's attention, so he yelled, "Hey Dad!" We were both shocked!

Stephen has only had one dream so far, but I think it takes the cake! He dreamt that I was in labor and the doctor said that they could see the head. Stephen went to see and said, "Hey Preston, come on man!" And in his dream Preston looked up at him and simply crawled out. hahaha Man, I wish it was that easy! He said he was a little stud in his dream. He had light brown hair and dimples. =) We'll know what our little guy looks like very soon.

Only 4 more days until we are blessed with a baby boy! We are getting so excited! I am off this week for some rest and final preparations for baby. We go to the doctor on Thursday. If I haven't made much progress they will likely check me in Thursday night, so we can get things going so we have him on Friday. If I'm in pretty good shape, I will check-in at 7:30am Friday morning. WOOHOO! We can't wait to meet this little guy.

Please keep us all in your prayers as we prepare for this wonderful journey we are about to start! Hopefully our crazy dreams don't come true, well mine at least! hahaha

Our Last Shower

We have been super fortunate to have so many wonderful showers! Last week was my last shower before lil Preston's arrival. My team had a nice dinner for me at Isabella's. They were super sweet. The room was decorated with beautiful flowers, cute bottle center pieces and precious baby petit fours. It was super sweet and a fun evening with the girls from work. =) We got some more great stuff that we were super excited about! I really work with some fabulous women. I'm really excited to introduce lil Preston to all of them! It'll be soon now, only 2 weeks from today! YAY!!!!

Daddy Shower for Stephen

Last week Stephen's co-workers had a daddy shower for him at his office. I was able to take off a little early and head over there for the fun festivities. They had a cute sports theme for the boys. We got all kinds of great stuff to start off Preston's sports collection including A&M and Cowboys onesies! This boy is going to be ready for football season this year! It was fun watching Stephen open gifts at this shower. It's usually me, so it was nice for him to get to be the focus for once. We are getting super excited for lil Preston's arrival. He'll be joining us soon!! WOOHOO!

Another Amazing Shower Weekend!

I had the most wonderful shower this weekend! My wonderful hostesses were my best friends from college Kristina and Ashley who came in from Oklahoma City (even Ashley who had to leave her newborn at home for the first time), my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law. It was absolutely amazing! These girls really thought of everything! The spread was delicious, the cake was amazing, the flowers were beautiful and they even had cute party favors to hand out when everyone left! These girls really went all out to celebrate lil Preston!

We had such a great time with everyone that attended. I had family, wonderful aunts, extended family in from California, friends from work, neighbors (new and old), and some other great friends in attendance. I was completely ovewhelmed by the attendance and the generosity of these wonderful people in my life. I felt so loved!! Stephen, Preston and I got so many wonderful things! Some of the things we got include: our nursery bathroom stuff that matches Preston's room, our bumbo and tray, our high chair, jumparoo, Bottles/warmer and sterilizer, gate for the stairs, carriers, Preston's first Christmas outfit, some more adorable clothes and I got a couple of little things to wear after baby Preston arrives. =) It was wonderful! We are so blessed!!

Once the guys got home, we quickly put them all to work putting all the goodies together. We got a kick out of all the guys putting together the gate for the stairs. Stephen even got a little gift to open (which was fun for him).

Overall it was a beautiful day surrounded by so many people we love! Thanks again to my wonderful hostesses! You girls are amazing! And thank you to everyone who attended. I can't wait for Little Preston to meet everyone of you. I know you all will touch his heart as much as you have touched mine and Stephen's!
