Well I have decided it is time to get back to my blog!!! I am missing out on too much of our lives...cannot believe it has been almost 2 years since my last post. Our baby girl Phoebe is going to be 18 months old this month and oh yeah...we live in North Carolina now!!! I have decided to play catch up I will post something everyday with at least one picture until I am caught up...so I guess that would be about 30 posts!!! But it has to be done...we have so many new beginnings coming soon that I do not want to miss out on. For anyone that actually reads this blog...look out because here comes the posts :)
WOW!!!! Has it really been over 4 months since our last entry. I decided to FINALLY take time and update our blog after frequent reminders how I have been slacking (thank you Stacy and Hilarie). So what is new.... :) Oh come on, everyone knows what is new with the Lineberry's...WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!! We found out just after the New Year that I was pregnant. What a funny story there...ask me sometime I will explain, it is too long to put here. And from approximately late January to about mid-March I spent fighting consistent nausea and fatigue. No one tells you how much you sleep during your 1st trimester. I felt at times like I had narcolepsy! Stephen has been the MOST supportive husband with lots of hugs and kisses and reminders of what a "GOOD JOB" I am doing. We are blessed to have the Newport Beach Stake President as our OB/GYN which has been wonderful!!! I had to deal with A LOT of blood tests early on (some days I felt like a pin cushion, but it was all worth it). Two weeks ago we found out that we were going to be blessed with a BABY GIRL, which Stephen said he knew as soon as he saw her feet on the ultrasound. He said the feet were so sweet and petite and Lineberry males have a history of having HUGE horse feet from all the generations of Appalachian Men.
My second trimester has been great...this past week my tummy decided to pop so now I really look preggo and not just FAT :) Also a little over a week ago I felt her kick for the first time. It is the greatest feeling like she is telling me "Hello, Mommy" or "Wake up, Mommy" or "FEED ME,MOMMY!!!" This is definately Stephen's baby because she is VERY active and wants food every 2 hours. My 12 week ultrasound was supposed to take about 10-15 minutes and instead took almost an hour because Stephen's baby was acting like Daddy and would not sit still so the measurements could be taken :)
I promise that I will be better at documenting our lives...Facebook took over too much, but I miss the journal aspect of our blog.
Stephen and I celebrated our 3rd Anniversary last night...WOW how time flies when you are having fun :) We exchanged gifts when I got home from work...I went the traditional gift way and gave Stephen a new leather wallet with a wedding pic inside (the traditional gift for the 3rd anniversary is leather). Stephen surprised me with his gift...he did some research and decided to go the modern route which for the 3rd anniversary is Crystal :) He gave me the most beautiful Crystal Earrings and I absolutely love them. My hubby really does know how to give a great gift. After we both took a well deserved nap we got all pretty and headed out in the pouring rain for dinner. Stephen took me to Roman Cucina, which is an excellent southern Italian restaurant in Newport Beach. The atmosphere is quite fun yet romantic. We even received a free dessert, a yummy chocolate chip cannoli :) The day was perfect because I spent it with Stephen and every day I have him in my life is my best yet. I feel so blessed to have found the perfect man for me who loves me and lets me love him. I thought it would be fun to post some wedding pics for nostalgia!
Stephen and I decided to go and take pictures for our Christmas card yesterday around Huntington Beach. It was so great taking pictures at the Hyatt where just three years ago this upcoming week we were taking wedding pictures! Stephen was masterful with the camera setting it up on a step ladder to get just the right shot. I absolutely love the pictures and look forward to sending everyone our Christmas Card. Enjoy a preview of the pics!
Stephen and I have been married for 3 1/2 years now and are the proud parents of our baby girl, Phoebe Lynn. It has been the most wonderful time in our life, thus the name of our blog (also a nod to Stephen's fav movie).
