Wedding fun.

This is late posting... but I'm dying to share about my sweet cousin's wedding earlier in August.

My college roommate and cousin, Robyn, got engaged last fall and asked me to be her Matron of Honor. I was beyond honored and excited for all the fun to come!
She did a great job planning and putting the whole wedding together!
We had a great time the whole weekend... catching up with family, prewedding activities, and the actual wedding.

Sweet family at Red Lobster!
At the Bridesmaids luncheon!
Beautiful cake and set up :)
Teaching Tatum how to do the Cupid Shuffle! She picked up the kicking and stepping really well! I was very impressed!
We are so pumped for the new Abernathy family :) Wish they didn't leave so far away! But so excited to have mr. gregory at our future family gatherings. He definitely belongs!

21 Weeks.

Cameron is about the size of a pomegranate! He is probably about 12 ounces and closely resembles a mini version of a fully developed person, but still can fit into the palm of my hand- OMG, is God awesome or what??

How far along? 21 weeks!
Total weight gain? 5 pounds.
Maternity clothes? YES, they are the most comfy!
Stretch marks? No, haven't started lotioning up yet either!
Sleep? Sucks, a lot. I wake up so much! 
Best moment last week? Spending sweet time with my hubby. Loved our easy going weekend!
Movement? Yeah, I wouldn't call Cameron super active... but I think maybe I still can't feel him all that much. When I'm just lounging around is when I feel him most! Favorite parts of the day :)
Food cravings? dessert- any and everything!!
Gender? Sweet baby BOY!
Labor signs? None.
Belly button in/out? Keeping the "in" for now! Me and Matthew took guesses on which week it would start poking out! We will see who is closest!! (Hubby says 30 weeks, I said 28 weeks- it could be sooner! Eck!!)
Missing? Good sleep!
Looking forward to? Another chill weekend at home! Making decisions about Cameron's nursery!
Milestones? Nothing big... just love to keep feeling my sweet baby move!

Size dividers for Cameron's closet! (Sorry the first one is out of focus... I was taking this pic quick!)

And Matthew sent this to me one day at work... the credit goes to my FIL. I think Cameron will be born knowing this fact. War Eagle!

It's a...


Meet Cameron Martin Watford :)

We were so excited to go to the doctor on Wednesday afternoon! They called me back and she went ahead and measured everything and had some pictures saved! Matthew came back and she pulled up the "gender" picture! She says, "He's definitely a boy!" And after we saw it, we agreed :)

I squeezed Matthew's hand and knew he was jumping up and down on the inside! I whispered to him that it was Cameron! And we were just grinning from ear to ear!! We were happy to hear that he is very healthy and growing right on track right now! She told us that everything looks great!!

After the appointment we went and looked at some baby stores just for fun and nursery furniture! We were so excited that it worked out for my family to be coming through town the next day so we could tell them in person!

So Matthew and I got to celebrate together on Wednesday night and prepare to share with our family and friends! I decided to do a cupcake reveal (thanks to Pinterest!) I stayed up till 12 cutting out the center of cupcakes and filling them with BLUE icing! My parents and sister Elizabeth and Matthew's parents, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins (and also Meaghan & Brandon and Stacy & Michael joined us through technology!) I had everyone sign a sheet guessing if they thought it was a boy or a girl! And this group overwhelmingly thought GIRL! So, it was a fun surprise!! My fam gave our Cameron some fun basketball gear and the Watfords gave him a blue doggie lovie! 

After celebrating in Birmingham, I headed with my parents down to Auburn to reveal the big secret to my family and a few friends! The majority of this group thought BOY so they were right on! They all gave Cameron sweet gifts of wipes and a few other goodies! It was so sweet!!

I've finally started to look pregnant and feel pregnant (being uncomfortable while sleeping etc I consider feeling pregnant!!) So I'm thankful for good progress :) God has blessed our little family so much already!! Thankful for each and every blessing!
