Words and Pictures Wednesday!

Well September was here and now it's on its way out!! That is fine with me......since on Sunday we were able to say hello to wonderful FALL!!  We had the most beautiful day.
Last week theHubs and I were on vacation. We didn't go out of state, since we already took a vacation to New Orleans earlier this year.  So we did a lot of local stuff.  Which was fine with me, I can only walk so much at the moment.  I'm a big walker....but this baby thinks it's fun to lay really low in my tummy. OUCH!
One of the days we drove out to Galveston!!  It was very relaxing...the only complaint I have is the new parking system now.  You have to pay to park at the seawall!!  First you call the 1-800 number, then confusingly enter your license plate number,  enter the special location code, then you have to use a cc or bank card to pay.  Why don't they just install the electronic parking meters?  After a frustrating 15 minutes of dealing with the phone....looked up the web page and downloaded the app., much easier than the phone number....but you have to enter the same things....plates, code, and cc number.  Oh well, we finally figured it out and got it done.   Then we enjoyed the day.
We relaxed at Murdochs......ocean views, nice breeze, rocking chairs and if you wanted to get a drink they sold some inside.  Murdochs is like a gift shop - lots of stuff to buy: shells, shirts, trinkets, postcards, drinks and more.

After relaxing we walked over to the Pleasure Pier.  It's closed during the week, that was fine.  Like I was going to get on any of the rides.  We had dinner at the Bubba Gump restaurant... we've eaten at the one in NYC and the one at Universal Studios in CA.  The food was yummy!

After dinner we walked off some calories on the beach.  Here is Mommy, Daddy and baby Belly with our toes in the sand!  I'm starting to not see my feet anymore  (*_*)

Pictures and Words Wednesday! A couple of pregnancy questions too!

Today is the day....I've finally hit the half way mark in this pregnancy!!  I still can't believe this is really happening, then I get a nice swift kick to my guts to bring me to reality.  Those little toes are too active.
Most parents have dilemmas and these are some of mine...
They range from stressing out over kids clothes sizes....which I shouldn't have to worry about just yet...but I do.  I worry about if I'm going to be a great mom.  Will I cry if the baby is crying....see I'm nuts.
Here are some of the more important issues that are currently on our brain.  My doctor has given me a due date in the 3rd week of January!  I have a question for other moms that might happen upon today's post.  Since I will be a first time mom,  should I expect to deliver before or after my due date?  I do plan on working until I can't waddle through the front door anymore.  The Hubs has asked if I would like to be a stay at home mom......which I would guess is most moms wish to do.  Don't get me wrong I so want to stay at home with baby, helloooo I'm not carrying a tiny human for almost 40 weeks just to have someone else take care of them.  But, even though I want to stay home I feel guilty....why...because I wouldn't want to put all of the responsibility on the Hubs.  Financially we are great, that's not the issue.  It's hard to explain how I feel, I was raised by a single mom, who taught us to be very independent, so sometimes I want to take charge of things and situations. I have the most amazing husband, he has provided me with all of my needs and has given me most of my wants.  I definitely have no complaints.  I just feel that I am capable of working to provide for my family as well.  I guess I'm just thinking too much.  I have some decisions to make pretty soon.  What do you think?
Sorry this is not the best picture....but here is my belly at 5 months!
