30 Weeks::

Hello! It is finally warm most day’s and Lydia and I have been outside as much as possible! It is so hard to believe this weekend is already memorial day! Where did the month of May go?? Well I am officially 7.5 months or 30 weeks pregnant. Up until yesterday I was feeling pretty darn good. I now am having sciatica in my right leg to the point that it hurts me to walk. Hoping some at home stretches and some added heat and relaxation will help settle the pain. We have a busy summer planned and it starts this weekend! I feel like we have something going on almost every weekend right up until my due date. I honestly have a hard time not being busy… especially when its warm outside! We did another mother daughter(s) photo session last week to mark 30 weeks! I still am in awe of how sweet Lydia already is to her sister (my belly) she loves to cover her with blankets, sing and read to her and shower her with kisses! I am just hoping this affection will continue once she is actually here with us!

Lydia is TWO!

Hello! Lydia turned two last week and I can’t believe it! She is turning into such a little lady! Growing up so fast right before our eyes! She is so gentle and caring and loves to give hugs and kisses! She is still a mama’s girl, but get’s very excited when dada get’s home from work. She is obsessed with anything to do with Outside! We go to the park almost daily to “slide” and she loves bubbles and chalk! This summer is going to be so much fun, now that she is running around and talking more and more each day! We celebrated her actual birthday by going to open gym, lunch with gramma and grampa, a visit to grandma’s work. Trip to the park and dinner out with daddy. Then we went to let her pick out a new toy before heading home to bed! She ate lot’s of ice cream and had an amazing day! The weekend we held her second birthday party at the house and it was sunny and 75! She had about 14 little friend’s over and lots of family! She spend the day eating pasta salad and ice cream, running around outside and swinging with friends! She opened her present’s and had such a great time! We love her so much and can’t wait to see what the next year brings! IMG_45381.1IMG_46041IMG_5237120180503_153322IMG_53311IMG_55021IMG_55331

7 Months::

Hello, I want to rewind and update you all… I have been so busy with prep for Lydia’s 2nd Birthday and just everyday life I forgot to update! I am currently 28 weeks pregnant with baby girl number 2! Wow seriously the time is flying by! I went to my glucose test appointment last week and passed.. I have never been so happy about passing a test in my life! With having GDiebetes when I was pregnant with Lydia I know how hard it can be. Life with a toddler is contant on the go and sometimes makes it impossible to meal prep. I am up 17 pounds and still feeling the lack of energy otherwise feeling great! I am just counting down until we get to hold baby girl and have Lydia finally take on her role as Big Sister! She is already kissing my belly and saying sister! We are slowly refreshing the nursery for her. Cory painted one wall mint and we picked up some new sheets and I plan to make some artwork for the wall above the crib. Keeping it all very simple but yet its a nice change. I am still craving sweets and orange juice everyday.. and I continue to eat egg’s almost every morning for breakfast which is something new this pregnancy. Ill write another post soon on Lydia’s 2nd Birthday Celebration! IMG_20180403_151116_055 6 Month’sIMG_44041

Spring::

Hello! I am currently 23 weeks pregnant with baby girl number 2! We have had an interesting couple of weeks around our house. Lydia got a little skin infection and her antibiotics have been messing with her sleep big time! However the good news is she has officially been pacifier free for 2 whole weeks! I can’t believe she will be 2 in just over a month! Still working at potty training, but I havn’t been pushing too hard as I don’t want to scare her! She sleeps for 1 nap (usually) and the entire night in her big girl bed! We are slowly organizing the nursery and adding a few new touches, I think I have finally decided the accent wall should be mint to go with the already grey walls and yellow curtains! So excited to see how it will turn out. Easter is Sunday and we have a full fun packed day planned with family. From church to egg hunts, brunch and dinner we have everything covered! Hope you are all enjoying the beginning of spring and have a wonderful Easter! IMG_20180323_153432_663.jpg

20 Weeks and Gender Reveal!

Hello! I am so excited to announce I am officially halfway through this pregnancy and we decided to find out the gender this time around! We had a family reveal party with a very large balloon that my husband popped and we are so excited to be having another beautiful baby girl! I had a gut feeling for weeks it was a girl, but I wouldn’t know for sure until the big reveal the day after our ultrasound! Baby girl is doing well, growing right on track 12 oz and 147 bpm heartbeat! We are overjoyed she is healthy and continuing to grow! IMG_22682IMG_23931IMG_23951IMG_24141
