Hello Lovelies! Hope everyone is enjoying some time outside in the beautiful weather we have been having! Seriously I blinked and its been another two weeks, 32 weeks today! Went to the doctor this morning to check on baby girl and she was moving around like crazy! All day everyday this baby is on the move! Heard the heartbeat and all is measuring right on track! We are so anxious to meet our newest addition next month! Today also happens to be our 5 year wedding anniversary! Wow seems like just yesterday we were walking down the isle. How do we have a two year old and another one expected in 8 weeks or less! Feeling very blessed and thankful! Today I was given a great gift, the gift of freedom. Being a stay at home mom is amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! However sometimes it is just easier to run into a place or have a lunch without trying to keep a toddler entertained, especially at 8 month’s pregnant! My mother in law offered to take Lydia for the day so I could go to the doctor, meet my mom for a nice grownup lunch and get a pedicure! I just got home with happy feet and started to pack, we are leaving tomorrow to take a trip with my parent’s to the Milwaukee Zoo. One last little family getaway before baby girl arrives and I get too big to move! Cory and I plan to head out to eat just the two of us this evening to celebrate before picking up Lydia! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Ill post another update very soon!
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!
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! 6 Month’s
26 Weeks and 25 inches of melting Snow!
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!
