13 Weeks | Baby #2

Last pregnancy I documented week by week starting at 13 weeks, and it’s so fun to look back now, that I’m determined to document this one similarly…

I’m hoping to do the same weekly shot with some fun lifestyle shots of our family and bump every now and then – I’m giving myself a break and not making that part weekly! Since it’s winter, most days we stay in our PJs and play which is great right now while my energy is just starting to return. There’s been a couple days though I’ve felt so achy and feel like I’m moving like a sloth. Trying to remember to rest!

Morning sickness really hasn’t been an issue, I’ve just been keeping my tummy from being empty. I’ve only thrown up once and I think it was more related to acid reflux and brushing my teeth.

Every time I show Em that there is a baby growing in my belly, she just tries to pull my shirt down or push my belly button. Not quite sure she’s understanding any of what we are saying about the baby yet. She does tend to think the baby will be a brother, though we asked her what we should name it and she suggested “Mia” – probably because Molly from Bubble Guppies had a little sister name that – sorry Em, that’s not on our list 😉

Hopefully this baby will love ring-around-the-rosy…

New Year, New Baby – Happy 2017

We are so excited for 2017, because that means we’re adding a new little one to our family! We announced it to family and friends with our “new years cards” since we were late on the whole Christmas card thing 🙂

Baby #2 is due July 23 and we’ve already seen baby twice via ultrasound. We explain to Em all the time that she’s going to get a new brother or sister and we’re pretty sure she has no idea what we are talking about. Every time we tell her there is a baby in mommy’s tummy she goes, “belly button, what?!” For the record she has mentioned a couple times about a boy or a brother, so we’ll have to wait and see!

I plan to document the weeks just like last pregnancy, but still figuring out a fun, unique way to do so! I’ll be 13 weeks this Sunday, so I need to get going on this!

Here’s some of our favorite photos from our photoshoot to try to get a good one for the announcement, oh man, you would not believe how many photos it took!

Emerald’s 2nd Birthday

We can’t believe our little girl has turned two years old! To celebrate we both took the day off. We started with birthday donuts, balloons in her crib and room and opening presents. We then headed to Wirth Park waterpark and our cousins joined us for the fun!

Then Blaze Pizza for lunch and then home for a nap! We ended the night with pizza and mimi and papa’s with family again and running around in the backyard with the barbie jeep.

The next day we celebrated with family and friends with an “under the sea” birthday party!
