And the verdict is...

Its a GIRL!!
Yes, most people already knew it was a girl, but we have had a few friends tell us stories of their friends who were told at 16 weeks baby was a girl and then at 20 weeks baby ended up being a boy.. So, just to settle nerves, we decided to confirm it before beginning to prepare for a little princess! But according to the US tech, she was 100% sure that we will be welcoming a little girl in July! With that being said, let the shopping and planning begin!! :)
How Far Along: 20 weeks
Size of baby: a banana... roughly 7in, 11 oz
Weight gain: 5 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Mostly all bottoms, still wear some normal jeans with belly bands and tops are still a good mixture.
Gender: Girl!
Movement: Yes! Lots of her moving, and beginning to feel her kick on the outside!
Sleep: Sleep is okay. Getting up a few times to potty, and occasionally because Cole is going through a rough patch right now.. Thankfully it looks like he is getting over that! :)
Symptoms: Random heart burn here and there
What I miss: Having a glass of wine!
Cravings: Chips! Weird I know!
Best Moment this week: Confirming we're having a little girl and getting an Iphone! :)
What I am looking forward to: Preparing for this little princess! :)

Half way there... Already?

I guess it is true, when you're chasing around a toddler, your second pregnancy seems to go a lot faster!! It really does seem like we just found out we were expecting another little blessing! And now we are looking to our 20 week ultrasound and confirming the sex of this little one!! I had the US tech write down what she thought this little one was last appointment so Hubs and I could open it together (he was deployed at the time).. When she wrote it down, she said she was pretty sure but we would confirm at the 20 week US when they do all the measurements... And that is on Monday.. So after that appointment I will start doing the survey.. Until then, here are a few pictures of the expanding belly:

Thought this was a precious picture.. My little guy decided last minute to jump in the picture with me and grab my hand!
Hope everyone had a very loved and blessed Valentine's Day!! My guys spoiled me with Krispy Kreme dounuts, flowers and lots of hugs and kisses!! Hubs had to work late, so C and I had a play date with a friend and her little ones!! All in all, a very good day!!
Had to share the updated family picture... Its a rare thing these days to have a picture of ALL 3 of us, and smiling at that!! :) Thank you selftimer and C learning to say "Cheeeeeese" :)

Sorry for all the boring blog posts!! Hope there are still some people out there still reading this old thing...

Wordless Wednesday! :)

Finally able to start uploading pictures to the blog!! Still borrowing a computer, so wont be uploading too many right now but decided I'd share some updated pictures with everyone! :)
18 wks w/ Cole 18 wks w/ #2
I showed Hubs the side by side and told him I could tell a difference between the pregnancies.. But being the typical male, his response was "I cannot tell a difference!!" What do you think??
Here are a few of our little man who is getting soo big:
Just relaxing on his couch with his feet up! :)
Playing at the park! One of his favorite activities!
Its hard for me to believe we have an 18 month old!! We took him to his 18 month appointment and he was 22 lbs 6 oz (I SWEAR we feed him!!) and 33 inches long... Long an lean! :) It kind of hit us at his doctors appointment that the next time we take him for a wellness appointment, which is his 2 year appointment, we will have 2 little ones!!
I know it is not much but its a little bit of an update!! I will start doing the weekly survey about the pregnancy around week 20..
Hope ya'll are having a great week!!! Hope everyone has fun plans this weekend to watch the superbowl!!

Just FYI...

My computer decided to take a little hiatus / may have kicked the can... That is to be determined, but its not looking good for the computer... :(

So because of this, I may be pretty sporadic with my posts.. Which honestly makes me pretty bummed because I really need to start documenting this pregnancy like I did with Cole!!

As far as the pregnancy goes, I am currently due July 4th, which puts me at 16 weeks.. But I am not completely set on this due date because I am consistently measuring beyond that date, more like July 6 or even 8th.. So we'll see if that gets moved eventually.. My guess is at the 20 week ultrasound when the do the full measurements of baby and see then what I am measuring at, it may get changed... But no matter what they decided, I am sure this little one will decided to come when it wants to!! :)

Hubs should be home in the next couple of weeks!!!

I tried to upload some pictures but its not working right now... I'll try and do a whole photo dump soon from over the holidays, which will hopefully include a bump picture!! But unfortunately this might have to wait until Hubs gets home with his computer..

Hope everyone is having a wonderful 2012, so far!! I cannot believe January is already partly over!

11 in 11

I was browsing through friends blogs and came across this fun way to look back at 2011!! So just like her, I decided I would try and give it a shot...

11. Favorite movie you watched: This one is hard because I honestly have not watched many new movies this year... But I guess I would say Horrible Bosses.. It was pretty funny!

10. Favorite TV series: I have soo many favorites, but I am reality junkie and I think my favorite right now would be "One Born Every Minute..." I know, I know.. WTH? Well, being that I have another one on the way, I love watching the real depiction of what labor really is and it gets me excited about our new addition coming.. And its pretty funny to watch some of these couples!

9. Favorite restaurant: I would have to say Buffalo Wild Wings.. I'm a sucker for wings!! And their Asian Zing... oomiiiigosh.. :)

8. Favorite new thing you tried: This will sound funny but PINTEREST! This website has really helped me come up with some crafty, fun and exciting new things for around the house!! I love trying all the things!!

7. Favorite gift you got: Hubs surprised me with this beauty under the tree:
He was not here to celebrate Christmas with us, so we decided to not do gifts.. At least I thought we did.. I am not currently at home, so I am have been able to try mine.. On the other hand I have used other people's before and I am extremely excited to get home and break mine out.. Now to find a good recipe to try!! :)

6. Favorite thing you pinned: This is REALLY hard, I have pinned soo many things, and even tried quite a few things and have a list of things I will be attempting soon!! But as of right now I would have to say this is my favorite pin because it gave inspiration for this:

Thus, helping us announce our exciting news! :) Even before we found out about #2, I had my eye on a few of these cute pictures to help with the announcement!

5. Favorite blog post: Would probably have to be this one...

4. Best accomplishment: Referring to number 5, I think my biggest accomplishment this year has been my little boy... Just this year, alone, he has gone from an infant, barely able to sit up, to a thriving, running, into everything toddler!

3. Favorite picture: Hands down this one:

I love the smirk on C's face.. Totally shows his personality! :)

2. Favorite memory: Ok, can I honestly answer this one? There are way to many good memories from this year... So I will just reminisce in my head and save you a lot of reading! :)

1. Goal for 2012: To not let what other do bother me soo much.. To trust in the Lord! To be happy in the moment and not constantly looking to the next thing!! To continue making my little family happy and putting smiles on their faces!

Hope ya'll enjoyed that!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, to everyone!!!

2011 has been a great year and I am soo excited about what 2012 has to offer!!

Christmas spirit...

Just wanted to share a few pictures of some Christmas projects I have been doing.. All these projects were thing I had seen on Pinterest and tried to recreate!!

This had good intentions.. But I do not like the way the "Joy" and "World" turned out.. I tried to combine two pictures I had seen and it did not turn out as well as I hoped.. So I'll be fixing this soon..

This turned out soo cute!! (Exactly like this picture!!) I was going to hang it in our yard on a flag hanger, but after a cold and rainy day, the ribbon didn't want to stick any more.. So now its on our entry table.. But still looks cute!!

These turned out adorable!! They're a salt dough cutout of his hand and painted like Santa! Cute personalized ordainment for the grandparents!

We took C to see Santa and he did not have a problem at all! I was fully expecting Cole to be like most kids and not like him at first, but nope.. He honestly was more concerned with the reindeer scattered around! He wanted to pet them!!

Unfortunately, we did not decorate much, again this year because Hubs was leaving for the holidays.. And with Hubs gone, C and I are back home spending extra time with family for the holidays! But I do have a few more Christmas projects I want to work on for next years Christmas... Thats if we get to decorate! :) I will be attempting to make stalkings and a tree skirt!! Hopefully they turn out as good as I imagine in my head because I am having the hardest time finding stalkings I really like for us..

Hope everyone is ready for the Holidays!!! I will be sharing our Christmas card with everyone soon! :)
