1/24/2017- Cejay Anthony

We FINALLY agreed that baby boys middle name would be after his daddy. The options were:

  • Cejay Anthony
  • Cejay Alexander
  • And Cejay Kai

We loved each name for different reasons and yet we ended up going with Anthony just because we liked how it sounded, what it meant “highly praiseworthy” and also because it’s after his daddy.

In ALL HONESTLY, the ONLY reason I didn’t want to name him Cejay Anthony was because he is already taking the Manzon last name and anthonys older brothers name as his first name and now anthonys name as a middle name. Is that mean and bitter that I feel that way? Lol. I guess it’s not that big of a deal since he’s the first boy and that’s a big deal to dads I guess to pass on their legacy. I just want to make sure he has his own identity and a piece of mommy too. I’m not worried though I’m sure he’ll get my Afro ๐Ÿ˜‚. 

Can’t wait for little man! Excited we start our baby prep class today. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™โค

12/21/2016- 24 Weeks ย 

Starting to feel extra big and uncomfortable in my own body. Can’t believe I still have 3 1/2 months of growing left to go ๐Ÿ˜ณ. 

Last night I had a dream that Baby Cejay was here and was laying on our eastern king bed with nothing else on it. He looked so cute and tiny. Anthony comes into the room and says why are you standing in the corner come lay down with us and lays next to baby Cejay. I start crying like crazy and anthony asks why are you crying. I say because he’s so tiny… why is he so tiny!! Anthony starts laughing and picks up the baby and puts him in my arms. Immediately the baby starts smiling as if he knows he’s being held by his mama. I start crying again but this time even more. Anthony says okay now I’m really confused why are you crying. I say, because he’s just so cute… why is he so cute!! LOL! 
Sounds like my dream me had a bad case of the baby blues. I text my mom and told her about the dream. She’s like yup sounds about right. Praying for a continuous healthy pregnancy and post pregnancy when that time comes ๐Ÿ™โค


Today is the day we have been planning for for months… to find out the baby’s gender!! AHH!! Everyone keeps asking me what I want and honestly I don’t know.

Having a little girl would be sooooo cute and fun. Having a little boy would be super solid and would give us our little dude. 

Gina & Holly slept over last night and helped all morning which was super duper helpful! We decorated, set up for tables for food, prepared games and the photo booth. Danny’s tacos ๐ŸŒฎ is catering woooot wooot!! Joe is hosting!! ๐Ÿ™Œ We have the confetti cannons that Jessica prepared for us- pink confetti will come out if it’s a girl and blue confetti will come out if it’s a boy. 

Can’t wait to update you all…!! 

11/9/2016- Pregnancy Check Up

Today we had a pregnancy check up. Got all of our blood work back from our second trimester screening and everything came back negative… which is a GOOD thing! ๐Ÿ™โœจ Also said my migraines can be dangerous to baby so he gave me medicine for it. Lastly, he said baby’s heart rate is 145 ppm says it sounds like a healthy baby boy! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™
