18 months....and the attack of the FLU!

Lily Anne turned 18 months this past Saturday. Time truly does not stand still. Nana and Grandpa came to visit and play. Then Sunday Mom and Dad got to enjoy a night off while Nana babysat. Mich and I went to see The Blue Man Group at the Fox. It was a completely awesome show. However, we came home to a sick toddler.

After a day of high fevers and no sleep I took Lily Anne to the DR. Lovely we got a confirmed case of FLU! YUCK!!! (And yes, we ALL got the vaccine!) So this week was filled with lots of snuggles and love for Lily Anne.

23 Weeks

How far along: 23 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain
: I think 8lbs....

How much does baby weigh: "Your baby is about eight and a half inches long and weighs one and a half pounds, gaining steadily at a rate of six ounces per week. " (

Maternity clothes: yes 100% bottoms. A few tops...especially for length

Cravings: OJ, grapfruit, Chocolate

Sleep: Sleep is going really good in our house. However, here lately Olivia is definitely making it very clear that she does not like mom sleeping on her stomach or back! (which seems to be the most comforting for me!)

Movement: it is a daily and nightly battel with her. She is all over the place....boxing ring or soccer field....

Belly button in or out
: Innie!

What I miss
: Happy hour....a glass of wine with dinner....ability just to get up and go! Not having to pee every five minutes....what happened to the 2nd tri relief from that symptom?

What I'm looking forward to
: the Blue Man Gropu concert on Sunday night, Monday off from work...but not from removing furniture from one room and shifting things around the house.

Milestone: I am further a long than I have weeks to go!

sneek peek at what is to come in the nursery.....Olivia's wall letters!

Thanks to Nancy at Simplymade! She painted and is mailing these out today...I am so excited! Things are coming together nicely! Now, if I could get busy on the rest of the room!


Now, on the serious side....if you are not a follower of Kelle Hampton's Blog... take moment and check it out. Her amazing family and story is so captivating! I have enjoyed reading her journey through life, motherhood, and enjoying each post and reminding me to live each day to the fullest. The smallest details do count.

Nella is turing one and they are trying pay it foward. Giving a moment of happiness for a lifetime of giving to each child! "it begins with awareness"

Cute Smiles and Baby Kickboxing!


Yeah that is what is going on inside!!!!

It is fight to see who can win....and generally she does by me getting up and moving to make room or whatever she wants. The wakeup call I received last night (let me the wee morning hours) at 3:15am from the inside was not cool! It took me nearly a hour to get back to sleep only to have the alarm go off at 6:30am. I saying hands down that is insane!

Olivia: your sister did not beat mommy from the inside and the same rule will apply to you too!

About a hour after I posted yesterday....the baby store called to tell me that Olivia's furniture was in!! WTH???? your said it would 6-12 weeks....I was banking on that time. Not coming in 3 weeks after I ordered! Causing a mini freakout moment....Olivia's nursery is a still 100% in use guest bedroom! Nothing done...NOTHING!!!

Roundup and 21 weeks

Lily Anne and her 4 wheeler! She loves to ride on it....generally zooming away from me. Man she stole all my energy. But I love that is becoming so independent and waiting to become a little girl.

Yes even enough hair to put a bow in it....FINALLY!!!! I love my little red head!


21 Weeks.....

So here we are at 21 weeks 4 days....

So we finally decided a name for Baby #2. Olivia Claire We could not agree on a lot of names...but this one we both fell in love with and now are ready to say she officially has a name!

There is so much to do in the next 18 weeks and a few days... We have not started on anything in the house to make room for another baby. I have ordered her baby bedding...and went today at lunch to pick up a few paint samples.

We placed the order for the furniture....that is suppose to be here in 6-12 between now and then we have to empty a room and shuffle that stuff to other places in the house. Seems so simple in writing....but darn!
