Baby's First Trip to Florida!

Baby Awesome made his first trip to Florida! Granted, he/she probably won't remember much of it but he/she's been there!

First off, flying while pregnant wasn't that bad. Per my doctor's orders, I had to deny going through the metal detector and have a pat-down...nothing like being felt up early in the morning! I also took an empty bottle to fill with water once I made it through security. I had to carry my water with me so if we got stuck on the tarmack (luckily we didn't!) then I wouldn't get dehydrated and even though my flights were only 2 hours and 1 hour, I still had to get up and walk which was no problem since I have to pee every 5 minutes. Seriously, after the first afternoon there, I told my mom that I felt like I was on a tour of bathrooms in Florida because EVERY place we stopped, I had to use the bathroom.

Honestly, all I did on this trip was relax which was AMAZING and much needed! I mean I still got out and about and saw things like this (he's just chillin' on the bank with a turtle):

But most of the time, you could find me by the pool (NOT in a swimsuit, just shorts and a tshirt) reading a book or my mom and I were shopping. Here are some of our scores:

Orange one says "Bananas for Mommy" and the yellow one says "Mommy's Major Hunk"

The cutest socks/shoes!
Aww..."Daddy's Princess" and "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" shirts!!!
Umm...yeah, we shopped!
Luckily, we got almost all of this stuff at a steal of a deal (some stuff was barely $1!!!) so we got both boy and girl clothes and some neutral stuff. Anything camo also went in the cart (since DH loves to hunt and our child, boy or girl, will be in camo). So the boy/girl stuff we won't use, we're going to donate to local organizations in our home town so nothing will go to waste.
All the clothes are still in Florida though because you know me and I don't want to have it in the house yet until after our appointment tomorrow. I am 21 weeks and it's our BIG u/s! DH and I are both really excited even if we aren't finding out the sex because I haven't seen the baby since 10 weeks and DH at 6 weeks when the baby was just a wee little sac! So please say a prayer for us that Baby Awesome is doing well and we get a good report tomorrow. Will update as soon as I can! Happy New Year!

For a second there, I was looking at the boy clothes & the girl clothes and wondering if you knew TWO somethings you weren't sharing. :-)

Great deals on clothes!! You'll always find someone else that can use them (or like you said, donate them) :) It's the best time to shop for that stuff!!! We have the one that says "Bananas over mommy" :)
