Let me just tell you how super excited I am about next week. Not only is it Christmas, but I also have my 4D ultrasound on Tuesday! I cannot wait to see his little face. I am super blessed to be able to have the opportunity to do that, because I know not all moms have the chance to have a 4D ultrasound. I always wondered what the difference was between a 3D and 4D ultrasound and finally found out that a 3D is just pictures and 4D is an actual moving DVD. I had to choose 30 minutes worth of music to play during the DVD. It was quite difficult. There are TONS of songs out there about little girls, but not so many about little boys. I went through my itunes about a hundered times and even googled "songs for ultrasound" and finally I have all the songs!

1. Proud Father - Jon McLaughlin
2. Until You - Dave Barnes
3. My Wish - Rascal Flatts
4. Best Days - Graham Colton
5. Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
6. I Hope You Dance - Lee Ann Womack
7. You Are My Sunshine - Instrumental

I did LOTS of crying listening to these songs! Especially the song Proud Father! I think one of the best things about having a baby is knowing how great of a daddy Drew is going to be. I could not have chose a more special person to have a family with. Just watching him talk to my belly and seeing how protective of me he is (he won't let me carry groceries for goodness sake), I know that he is going to put everything he has into being the best daddy he can. Here recently I have REALLY gotten baby fever badly. Everyone has been having babies and posting their pictures on facebook. Hopefully these next 10-12 weeks go by SO fast!! I have a feeling that Cadyn will be earlier than what the Dr. thinks...I would almost put money on the fact that he comes around 37 weeks...he already feels like he's wanting to come now! He needs to ripen just a little bit more though...he's weighing in at a whopping 2 lbs and about 15 inches long. I will officially be 27 weeks in 2 days. Which means that he is almost fully developed he just has some more growing to do! As you can tell I'm super excited and can't wait to share the pictures from the ultrasound, and I can even post the video!
Merry Christmas!

Home for the Holidays

Keeping up with this thing might be harder than I thought. I forgot I had it....oops. I'll try to be better, but writing is actually really difficult for me. Coming up with things to talk about is my biggest problem, plus, my life really isn't that interesting.

Last week was Thanksgiving. For some reason, I am super excited about the Holidays this year. Maybe it's because we live 4 hours away from our families and so it's just so exciting to go home to Oklahoma and spend time with those that we love. Maybe it's because I have so much to be thankful for this year. I have a new husband, a new home, and a new baby growing in my belly! Seriously, it makes me tear up just thinking of how thankful I truly am (that could also be the hormones).

Thanksgiving this year was amazing. We were really hoping that we wouldn't have to choose where to go for Thanksgiving. His family, always eats around noon, so I asked if we could do my family's Thanksgiving a little later this year. It worked out perfectly. It was so nice to go and just spend time with those we love. I ate way too much and pretty sure my doctor is going to be a little mad at me for putting on so much weight this month HA! Thanksgiving is a pregnant woman's dream.

Sunday, marked the 24 week mark. I can't believe I am over half-way there....just one more month until I am in my 3rd trimester. It's going by SO QUICKLY! 24 weeks means that Cadyn is about 9 inches long, crown to rump, so that's not including his legs! and he is about 1.7 lbs!! I can tell you feels like he weighs so much more than that. I feel so front heavy and he is KILLING my back. They say that if a woman delivers at 24 weeks there is a chance for survival, not that I WANT to deliver him now...he's not finished cooking, but I just find this a HUGE step in building this baby! He is quite the little active guy....I feel him all the time! He's constantly twisting and turning, kicking and punching, and I can even feel when he is stretching and sticking his booty out. He seems to be the most active at night and in the morning....which is actually kinda cool cause it's while I'm in bed and so Drew has been able to just lay his hand over my belly and feel the movement right along with me. His face lights up when he feels it too, he is constantly asking me questions about how it feels and such. He is really excited about being a daddy and I know that he is going to be SO much help. His work schedule is going to be great for me. He works only every other week and so 2 weeks out of every month he is home ALL day! Of course, he works VERY hard when he is at work, in one week he works over 87 hours, so his work weeks it's gonna be ALL me taking care of Cadyn, but I'm ok with that.

Yesterday, we went to Home Depot and picked out paint and other things to decorate his room with. I have got so many ideas for the nursery and I can't wait to start on it! We will probably start after Christmas. We really are in no hurry...he won't be here until late March, but I think it'll be really fun working on his room. I went ahead and started a registry at Target, I know it's early, but Drew and I FINALLY agreed on bedding and I didn't want to forget about it, so I just went ahead and started....just on the big stuff though. I'm so glad we don't have to go out and buy a crib...those things are expensive!! My parents bought my sister hers for my neice and so they offered to buy ours, but we are using Drew's from when he was a baby! It is still in great condition and it's actually REALLY think it's pretty cool that it was Drews! Now my parents can take that money and buy us other things for the nursery!

It's still kinda weird thinking that Christmas next year, I will have a 9 month old. I can't wait!!

My Love

Wow! I'm back in the blogging world. I use to blog all the time when I spent the majority of my day on Myspace, or back in the day when I was trying to convince people that my life was nothing short of fantastic. Now that I look back on my old blogs, they were actually quite lame and I'm embarrassed to read them because of how immature I was. Hopefully, I stick with this and it's not embarrassing to read 5 years from now.

Where do I begin? Let's begin with my best friend.

When I try to explain how I know Drew, that's when it gets pretty confusing, because people might think that we are cousins! He is my cousin's that's not a second cousin, no he's not my uncle, he is on the opposite mother's brother, is married to his mother's it?? I remember being about 6 years old and going over to my cousin's grandmother's house and Drew being there. We played hide and seek and played all day on a slide that looked like a blue elephant. Chad, who is my cousin (and Drew's) came up to me and said "Drew thinks your cute." This is when the infatuation began for him haha. When we were 14, we were over at the aunt and uncle's house for the 4th of July and Drew and I were being goofy playing with sparklers that were in the shape of guns. We were rolling around like idiots pretending to shoot each other James Bond style. Drew's grandmother, Daisy, looked at my mom and made the statement "wouldn't it be neat if Molly and Drew grew up and got married." Daisy is no longer with us, but she obviously knew something that we didn't at the time. She would be so excited! After that year, Drew and I each went our separate ways and dated other people. In 2005, I joined Facebook and thought I would look up anyone that I had ever known. I looked up Drew and found him. We started talking via Facebook and decided to go out on a date. So in September of 2005 we went out to dinner and went and saw "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" things seemed to go really well and we hung out all night after that. I was living in Stillwater at the time and Drew was living in Oklahoma City. He came and hung out a few times, but things kinda fizzled out after a while. Then, in Feb. of 2008 I was at a birthday party and I got a random text that said "Hey Molly, it's been a while, just seeing how you were doing" I thought...what in the world is Drew Gillispie doing texting me!? We talked via text message for a little bit and decided the next time I was in Tulsa that we would hang out. He was living in Henryetta at this point. So 2 weeks later it was Spring Break and I decided to go home to mom and dad's in Broken Arrow. Drew and I went out to dinner and a movie. I truly thought that we were just "hanging out" it was not necessarily a date. We ended up hanging out all night and things just went so incredibly well that we hung out the rest of that week. We were inseparable from there and 6 months later Drew popped the big question. June 27, 2009 I married the one person that God made for me. The wedding was perfect, the honeymoon was perfect, so perfect that we created the little person who is growing inside of me as we speak. Cadyn David Gillispie will be here March 26, 2009. Things happened so quickly, but I wouldn't change it for a second. God does everything in His good timing and I couldn't be more excited about all the things He is doing in my life.
