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!
Hello! Happy weekend to you all! We are moving right along with this pregnancy! Seems to be flying by this time around. I suppose it has something to do with chasing a toddler around all day! Anxiously waiting for 20 weeks when we will finally find out the gender! We are having a small family get together to reveal the gender. Our neighbor has been so kind to offer to fill the balloon with the correct color confetti so both Cory and I can be surprised along with all of our family members! Lydia and I are trying to get out the house a little more. Walking around places like Hobby Lobby waiting on spring! We try to go to an open gym for her to run around and play once a week or at least a few times a month. She loves it and it wears her right out, which is a plus for this no energy pregnant mama! Last weekend our master shower got tiled and I am obsessed with how its turning out! Just have to get the door on and I’ll make sure to post a photo next time when it’s all done! I have gained 4 pounds and am craving sweet’s like nobody’s business! So unlike me I am usually not a sweet eating person! Just picked up a new set of bed sheets for Lydia and had to get some of the Easter Starburst Jellybean’s… every time I go in the kitchen I eat one or two… it was not my greatest plan! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! The weather is slowly warming up, but not quite enough for my liking just yet! I will be back soon for a shower update and more!
Hello and happy Friday to everyone! Today I am 16 weeks pregnant with number 2! We all went in to see the doctor and finally after 2 month’s got to see Baby again! Growing strong and moving around like crazy! He/She was laying on his/her belly with fingers near the mouth! We got to see the spin, little fingers and of course the baby in general! I am already counting down to my next appointment in a month to have our ultrasound and find out the gender! In other exciting news Lydia has continued to nap in her big girl bedroom bed for the last 2 and a half weeks! We decided last night it was time to try an all nighter! She did absouletly amazing! She never cried or crawled out, we tucked her in and turned on her night light and shut the door. She was asleep within 10 minutes and slept all night long. She let out a quick cry at about 1:30am but was back asleep within a minute! We are so very proud of the little girl she is becoming! We will continue to work on potty training, she is getting the hang of the sign language needed so that will help a lot! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Follow along on Instagram for more daily updates!
Hello Lovely’s! Happy Tuesday to everyone! I just wanted to reach out with a quick update! Pregnancy is going well, food aversions are finally leaving for the most part! Craving chocolate cake with chocolate frosting but only allowing myself a few bites a day if any haha. We started the potty training nightmare last monday and she successfully went potty the first day, however it seemed to go downhill with accidents and then all together just wanting nothing to do with the potty. So we decided to take a week break and try again. She is only 20 month’s, just hoping she will be trained by her second birthday in May and out of diapers for good before baby number 2 arrives this summer. This weekend Cory and I worked on getting her big girl bed toddler proofed! We moved it to the corner of the room nice and tight to the one wall and put a toddler rail by her head. She successfully took her first 30 min nap yesterday afternoon! (it’s a start!) Today as I am writing this post she has been sleeping for 1 hour in her big girl bed! Were getting somewhere! I plan to keep doing her daily nap in the big girl room and then eventually in the next hopefully few weeks transfer her completely! Wish us luck! Hope you all have a good week and stay warm, we have been living in the house as everyone outside seems to still be sick and it’s just so darn cold! I will share the most recent photo from my pregnancy as Lydia is helping me kiss the first trimester goodbye! She gives the baby (my belly) kisses daily and points at my growing bump saying Baby everyday and it just melts my heart!
Hello! It is finally time to let our secret out! We are expecting baby number 2 this July! After a rocky and very nauseous first three months, with weight loss, exhaustion and food aversions, I am finally getting into my second trimester and thank goodness! I am in the process of potty training Lydia, mean while visiting the doctor and still trying to overcome the sickness from the end of December with no medication. I heard baby’s heartbeat at 11 weeks and 3 days a strong 160’s! Saw the baby at week 8 and am anxiously awaiting my next appointment at 16 weeks! We decided to not find out the gender of our first born (Lydia), but have decided that this time around we will find out and have a small family gender reveal! Word’s cannot express how excited I am to be fortunate enough to have another, but a part of me will still be nervous and scared to take on two babes. We plan to take thing’s one day at a time and adjust accordingly, we are already getting Lydia comfortable with “baby in my belly.” She even points at my belly and say’s baby and after every nap, every morning she kisses baby while standing in her crib!! We love both of these little one’s so much and after having a previous miscarriage before Lydia and having some family history of miscarriage, I am feeling extremely blessed to have already made it to the second trimester with this one! I will be posting more pregnancy, toddler updates soon! Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!
