A tire swing and a baby bump!

There is quite nothing like the smell of honeysuckle as you go for a morning walk. I can't tell you how much I've been outside today! I guess you can say I've missed it dearly. I honestly didn't know how much I've missed it until today. Just being surrounded by all the wild life and flowers. hearing the trees as the wind blows. And listening to the waves as the boats pass by. It's my kinda living! Today my Momma in law and my Mr Riley went for a long walk to the Swan Hill pier. Well, it was a long walk for me at least, considering I've been in bed pretty much the past three months. But must I say I loved every minute of walking. It was the perfect day for it!

                   Baby Bump!

Here's baby at 14 weeks! It's so exciting to watch this little person grow inside of me every day. I'm so blessed to be a mom.

                      Fun on the tire swing!
Mr and Mrs Riley

Not too high!!!!

I had to constantly remind him that I'm not a high in the sky kinda person. lol

He pushes, I soar!

Hearing a heartbeat made mine melt.

I must admit I haven't been very faithful to blogging. Since my little bundle of joy has been inside of me I've been pretty much hibernating the whole first trimester.  But I it's pretty safe to say I'm back and feeling much better. I still don't feel like myself one hundred percent, but lets face it. I think those days are over for the next six months. I can honestly say though I wouldn't have it any other way! I am very honored and extremely blessed to be carrying a miracle inside of me. A living being who I know God will use for His Kingdom. I get super excited just thinking about it!

Second trimester wooohooo!! 
So, I've been told that the first trimester is the worst trimester. And that once you get through the first your good. So may I pretty please tell you that I am extremely happy to say I hit the second trimester!! I am completely  honest with you when I say I have been waiting for this moment for a long time because my mother would call this trimester the "Nesting trimester" Because she says you get full of energy and you just want to bake and prepare for your family. And I have not had energy since early March.. So I am very much looking forward to that energy.

Hearing this precious heart beat made my heart melt.
My beloved Mr Riley and I went to see our doctor. And it was such an awesome experience!  Both baby and mommy are healthy and I was very happy to hear that. Another thing I was touched extremely to hear was the heartbeat our precious child. I wasn't sure what to expect but there was absolutely no disappointment! I honestly came close to crying. It was the most amazing thing I have ever heard! My next appointment is May 31st.
