25 Weeks!

I can't believe I missed another week! I keep telling myself to take a picture and then before I realize it, it's already Thursday and I have changed weeks. I guess it's a good thing that time is flying by!

I have had a small spurt of nesting and have organized closets and finally finished going through all of Brinley's clothes. I keep thinking we have all of this time, but really we have so much to do and baby will be here before we know it!

I also "popped" again this week...I suddenly feel huge. I sure hope it was just a growth spurt and I don't grow this quickly for the next 15 weeks!

Now you can see how much I have grown over the last 2 weeks...

Brinley's 2nd Birthday Photo Shoot!

Brinley Special :)

Let me preface this video by saying I swear I'm a good Mommy and we don't walk around talking about body parts all day long :)
I'll explain more after you listen :)

Explanation: Brinley has recently become aware of my anatomy, and seeing as we are expecting #2 and I will be nursing in front of her I decided to just inform her of the objects she was noticing. 
She kept telling me that she wants them, so I kindly explained she would get them when she gets bigger. So that's where point number one comes from. 
As for the gum reference, I really have no idea where that started. She says Grandma has gum and that she can have it when she is older, but I have never know Ryan's mom to chew gum. For weeks she would reply "I get gums" to the question what will you get when you get older. Then one night while I was actually chewing gum I asked her what she would get when she was older and out came "boobies and gums" Ryan and I almost fell to the floor laughing...hilarious. 

23 Weeks...

I swear I had pictures for weeks 21 and 22 but I can't seem to find them...I will.get.better....
In the baby world everything is great. Baby is sounding great and moving like crazy, Brinley never moved this much!

How far along? 23 weeks
Food cravings: Grapes
Biggest Moment? Having my 1st in home Thirty-One party!
Movement? Tons! Almost all day everyday, but especially around 9:30, that's where we just watch my belly dance around. 
Baby's Milestones: Baby is growing fast he/she is now 11 inches long and weighs about just over a pound!!

Minnie Mouse Party.....

I have Pinterest to thank again for stealing hours of my time and my money as I planned Brinley's 2nd birthday party. I'm pretty sure I am already looking forward to the days where we can pick up a cake and pay someone else to host :)

I can't take all the credit however, my mom and sister spent hours of their own creating her outfit, table clothes, invitations and signs. I am so very lucky to have such creative people in my life!

Brinley had a blast and loved every second of her party, especially when everyone sang to her. She was surrounded with family and loved ones and I couldn't have asked for more!

Our baby is 2!!

I can hardly believe my sweet little girl is two years old. It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. She is such an amazing little girl and I thank God everyday for choosing me as her Mommy. 
I look at her everyday in such amazement, especially when she says something that sounds like something a 5 year old should say. She loves singing songs, playing Daddy's guitar and Bubble Guppies. 
Brinley also comes up with some pretty hilarious things these days, I swear Ryan and I are cracking up on a regular basis at her commentary. 

On Brinley's birthday we all took the day off and spent a wonderful morning together celebrating our sweet baby girl. We started with eggs and cinnamon rolls followed by a trip to the Aquarium.

20 Weeks!!

20 Weeks

How far along? 20 weeks...half way there!
Food cravings: Soft serve ice a cone
Biggest Moment? Heading to our 20 week ultrasound
Movement? Baby loves to dance and kick! I am even seeing the kicks on the outside on top of feeling them!
Baby's Milestones: Baby is growing fast he/she is now 6.5 inches long and weighs about 10 ounces!

We had our appointment today. The monitor we normally get to see things on was broken so it was kind of disappointing. Our tech was really nice and tried to turn her screen to us as much as possible. We saw babies feet and lots of profile shots. We even were able to see baby moving it's lips and cute!
The tech tempted us with finding out the sex by offering to write it down and put an in an envelope. but we held strong...go thing Ryan was there to keep me from saying yes. I'm finding it harder to be team green this time around. However, after today there is no turning back and I know I will be so happy with our decision on delivery day!
Here are a few pictures of our sweet little one!

This picture is a little weird but you are looking at it's face straight on. You can also see the arm to the right and it's body is kinda wrapped up and around. She was trying to get a good face shot for us, but baby was apparently very content in this very weird position.

Baby feet!

Baby is measuring 3 days behind like he/she has at every ultrasound and is weighing a whopping 12 ounces!
We love you little bean!
