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

18 Week’s::

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!

16 Weeks and Her Big Girl Bed

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!

Kissing It Good-Bye::

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!
