16 Weeks!

Welp, we missed a couple weeks, but here's a 16 week update! Between painters, exhaustion, and a spur of the moment trip to Tallahassee, I'm surprised we're even getting a 16 week picture...thinking the monthly's may be a little easier!

How far along: 16 weeks/4 months!

Size of baby: An Avocado!

Baby weight: +3lbs. since 12 week appt = total of 7lbs. (I blame my father-in-laws fabulous cooking!)

Showing?: Yep! Finally have a little, but legit, baby bump!

Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but starting to outgrow my regular clothes....trying to look half way put together right now is not so easy!

Stretch marks: Nada, but my booty is definitely a little saggier...and thighs are bigger...

Movement: I think?! Not sure if its lil bits or Braxton hicks...swear I felt a foot the other day...

Gender: Next sonogram should reveal that answer!

Belly button in/out: In!

Morning sickness: Pretty much gone! Still getting headaches :(

Cravings: I can eat veggies again! Healthy foods are my favorite and still Cheerios. Sweet tooth is still hates it!

Exercise: Running/walking (it's ├╝ber hot here!) and weights- MOH duties have made me want to keep these arms in tip top shape!!

Energy: SO much better! I am a much happier person during the second trimester and actually want to get up in the morning...still pretty exhausted by 9pm...I blame child #1

What I miss: Not having to think about what I can actually fit closet has become limited and I haven't wanted to go shopping...I know, it could be worse!

What I won't miss: Dizziness, heart burn, exhaustion, weight gain...ya know normal prego things! Oh, and sleep! I WANT my sleep back (hah...maybe in 2015?!)

What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the sex of lil bits and feeling that movin and groovin! It doesn't seem real until then!

Best Moment: Watching D point to me every time we ask him where the baby is...he's going to be a great big brother :)

Daven really wanted to get in the weekly/monthly picture...I love him!

Tuesday phone dump!

** Apparently this didn't post on Tuesday like I wanted! **

This past weekend we went to Tallahassee- it was great to see family and watch D interact with his sweet cousin! Wyatt is so patient with him and loves to show "Daden" how to do all sorts of things! Listening to Wy tell D "push da budin (button) like dis" while leading him to the specified button (it was a water mister at the park) was priceless!

Sometimes this is all he wants to do... And it's the best reminder that before long he will be all grown up! And yes, for those that don't hair is his security hasn't been cut in forever...for the love of a child ;)

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to the amazing, loving, strong-willed, and Godly women we know! Mom/Nonni and Gena/GeGe, thank you for being you and helping guide us to be the adults we are today! I pray we are and continue to become as remarkable examples to Daven and Grady as you have been to us!

Phone dump Monday

Happy Monday! This lil family is pretty exhausted from a fun-filled, sunny weekend of play!

We FINALLY attempted finding a Church home again, but...despite our best efforts (and really handsomely dressed babe) we got called to the nursery for immediate pick-up a mere 15 minutes into the service. Poor baby just couldn't stop crying! It's hard on all of us; D having separation anxiety and us wanting to find a Church that we both love. Guess the look continues!

Park play date!

After a couple days of rain and painters, D and I were in need of an escape! After driving around for 30 minutes in search of a new park, we ended up downtown at our favorite hangout, Payne Park.

The afternoon escape was just what we needed and lil man had a blast watching all the big kids play!

13 Weeks!

Since this little one seems to be making me pop a lot more than D (typical with the second child), we will chronicle as many weeks as we can in weekly bump pictures!

How far along: 13 weeks!

Size of baby: A peach!

Baby weight: 4lbs.

Showing?: Yep! However, I just look pudgy to those that don't know me!

Maternity Clothes: Not yet...but have definitely whipped out the bigger workout shorts!

Stretch marks: Nada, but my booty is definitely a little saggier...

Movement: Nada

Gender: The tech thinks it's a boy based off our 12 week ultrasound, but not making any rash room decisions yet!

Belly button in/out: In!

Morning sickness: Starting to subside, but the evenings are still pretty miserable! Heart burn is worse this time around as well.

Cravings: Yogurt, apples, bananas, carbs, milk, and still Cheerios! Sweets kill me right now and still no bueno with meats!

Exercise: Trying! Sarasota is already warming up so walking has been our constant- definitely noticing the baby weight!

Energy: Comes and goes- each day is different and really depends on how much sleep D let's me get!

What I miss: I have a feeling this whole pregnancy will be exhausting and energy will be greatly missed! I've really missed my zeal for exercise!

What I won't miss: Dizziness, heart burn, exhaustion, weight gain...ya know normal prego things!

What I'm looking forward to: Still movement (got a ways to go...didn't feel D until 21 weeks) and actually looking pregnant...I have a really hard with the first trimester pudgy appearance :)

Best Moment: Seeing a healthy baby on the ultrasound and hearing the heartbeat....such a reassuring sight and sound! However, it's funny how different this little one already is! He/she was all stretched out and cool as a cucumber, while D was all curled up like a little Yogi master and wiggly! Only similarity...they both have/had a case of the hiccups!

Late week photo dump!

This past week, my sweet Momma came for a visit! We had a wonderful time catching up, planting in the yard ( thanks Mom for lending us your green thumb!), and playing with D!
