Baby #2 - 17 Weeks

Date: March 20, 2014

Photo Thoughts: The bump is definitely out!

Size of Baby: Onion.....mmm onion rings!

Cravings/Aversions: I really have been craving salads. I haven't ate many of them, but hey, it's a start right?

What I'm Loving: Feeling what I think are tiny tiny little baby kicks and that we have a name all picked out for our baby boy.

What I'm Anticipating: Our housewarming party next weekend and getting the nursery set up after that.

Missing Anything: Sleeping through the night for 10 hours!!!! oh, those were the days!

Worries: Affording everything for 2 babies......same old thing!

How I'm Feeling: Like spring is on the horizon, which makes me one HAPPY lady!!!! The nice weather just makes me happier and I can't wait to go on walks with Myla in the park behind the house.

Sleep: I don't get much. period.

Movement: Just the tiny tiny things I've been feeling sometimes and since this is my 2nd time around, I'm pretty sure that they are little kicks from the baby.

Other Thoughts: I can't wait until we sell our old house so I can go baby shopping!!!!

Baby #2 - 16 weeks

Date: March 13, 2014

Photo Thoughts: Why can't I manage to take a picture????

Size of Baby: Avocado

Cravings/Aversions: Ice cold water and cereal and ice coffee and......

What I'm Loving: That the baby is a BOY! Also, that the belly is starting to feel harder which makes this pregnancy seem more real.

What I'm Anticipating: Decorating a boy nursery and buying all kinds of cute little baby boy clothes.

Missing Anything: My old house....weird, I know, because I LOVE the new house. But, pregnancy emotions have me feeling all nostalgic about it and knowing that that is where we brought our baby girl home too just makes me kind of sad. 

Worries: Will I be a good mom to a baby boy?

How I'm Feeling: I'm feeling stressed lately with work and the move, but other than that I can't complain. I am definitely a crying mess lately though. These preggo hormones are NUTS!!!

Sleep: I. Need. Sleep. Period.

Movement: Nothing new since last week and I'm getting VERY anxious. I want to feel the baby move and kick so bad.

Other Thoughts: Moving sucks!

Myla is 9 months old!

This seems like a big one to me.....she is soooo close to being a year old!!!

Sleeping: Myla did seem to be back on track with her sleeping schedule before she got sick and since then it has been madness! She was sleeping perfectly from around 7:30pm each night to around 6am in her OWN bed, but since she has been sick it's been up at 10pm and cry until mommy and daddy cave and bring her into our bed. She's teething really badly and seems to just want the comfort of being with us and when she had the flu I didn't want to make her cry it out. It seems she has gotten used to the bed though, so we are going to have to have a few sleepless nights ahead to get her back in her bed!

Eating: We have been trying to give her more "real" food this month. She loves sipping out of our straw and loves french fries, bread, blueberry muffins, and goulash. She was sitting on my lap while I was eating goulash at my parents and snuck a huge bite before I noticed. She loved it and giggled away. She knows when you are eating food now and pretty much begs for some. So cute! She also LOVED sucking on a strawberry!

Milestones: She had her first real sickness....the flu. Luckily, I took her to the doctor right away and they prescribed her Tamiflu. It knocked it out really quick. She still has the runny nose and has slap cheek disease, which is just a virus that will go away in a few weeks. Seeing her so sick was heart wrenching. But, she also had some good things this month. She hung out with her Grandpa Perry alone for the first time on Valentine's Day while Mommy and Daddy had a date night. And, she got her first big girl car seat. Here's to NOT hauling that heavy car seat in and out anymore!!! She can also pulls herself up to the standing position frequently and even attempts to scoot along the side of the couch. After this discovery, we decided we better lower your crib! Just the other night, she took her first walk with her little walker toy and she thought it was soooo fun. She had her first toothy pop through the other day as well. You can hardly see it, but you can definitely feel it. Also, this month, she had her first overnight slumber party with Nana and Nanny on the weekend that we moved in to our NEW house!!! (post about that to come) This month has had HUGE milestones!!

Things you Love: She LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on tv. Nana and Nanny had been telling me how she loves that show, but I didn't realize her fascination. As soon as you turn it on, she stares at it and then starts giggling. Adorable! She loves to pinch Peanut and Prissy and watch them play. And, she gets a kick out of watching Daddy or Mommy dance and act like a fool....haha!! She also loves crawling all around at the new house and's much easier on her with the carpeting.

We've moved!!!!

Yep, we bought a NEW house!!!! We absolutely couldn't be happier with it. We decided we may want to start looking at houses in December when we found out our family would be growing again, but we really weren't too serious about it. Until....we stumbled upon our dream home for a fraction of the cost since it was foreclosed. We decided to take the plunge and try to get it! Boy, was that a roller coaster. Between switching types of loans, getting the offer accepted, coming up with money for the down payment, and ya ya ya......IT WAS CRAZY STRESSFUL!!!! However, it was all definitely worth it. And so, here it is........

I will definitely post more pics once we get the inside decorated! And in the meantime, I will be enjoying a nice LONNNNNNNGGGGGG bath in my new jacuzzi tub!!!!

Baby #2 is a........


We went to Peek-a-Boo today and found out that our little baby is a healthy little boy. My parents, Brian's mom and nana, Ashton and Josh, and Myla all came to witness Brian scream with excitement when he found out it was a boy. Such a great moment!!! Myla even cried because all the screaming scared her so much....haha!

Other Thoughts: I'm really enjoying spending time with Myla because I know she won't be the only one for long.
