2nd trimester

Today marks the first day of my 2nd trimester and I couldn't be more thrilled that the yuckiness of the first trimester will soon be behind me. In honor of this occasion, Brandon brought home a beautiful orchid to mark this next stage and to say that he loves me and he loves our baby. Sweet husband!

My new favorite thing...

The Belly Band!
As the weeks fly by, I have noticed a lot of changes, one of them being that I simply cannot button any of my work pants anymore. A few times I tried the rubber band trick and just leaving them unbuttoned and wearing a long shirt but working in a professional office, that doesn't always look so great. So, off to Target I went to get the coveted Belly Band. It hides the fact that I clearly don't have my pants buttoned and it keeps them in place! A huge help for a more comfortable work day!
(14 weeks tomorrow!)

Techspace Company Christmas party

Usually we go to Brandon's company Christmas party every year but this year I'm working for a big company so it was my turn to introduce Brandon to all my coworkers and friends at work. I was proud to have him around my arm and he was happy to hear all the "congratulations on the new little one" from everybody. It was a rainy, yet lovely, evening at the Balboa Bay Club and Resort in Newport Beach. Boat parade, dinner, open bar (not for me), and a lot of great conversation. Never hurts to buy a new Express dress for the occasion either ;)

Its Official!

Baby Lykins due July 7th!
Feels so official now that I have shared the news on Facebook and here! I held off for a long time because I was hit with the morning sickness bug pretty badly, but I'm finally starting to feel better now, just in time for the Holidays!
