Baby #2: 16 Weeks

Friday, November 28, 2014


baby's size: avocado

how I'm feeling: Pretty good. I feel like a normal person and aside from my baby bump, I hardly feel pregnant.

best moment this week: It has been a pretty crazy week. We are under contract on a new house and are trying to sell our house. We spent last weekend getting our house ready to put on the market. While those two days were more than exhausting for this pregnant lady, it feels good to be one step closer to moving closer work and church.

what I'm looking forward to: Our anatomy scan is less than three weeks away! I can't wait to see this little one!

Baby #2: 15 Weeks

Wednesday, November 19, 2014


baby's size: navel orange

how I'm feeling: My nausea has decided to come back. I thought since I had made it into the second trimester and the queasiness I had in the first trimester had disappeared that I was in the clear. It turns out my body has other plans. I still haven't actually gotten sick, but nothing sounds good when it's time to eat and I get full really fast. I hope this is gone (or at least eases up for a day) come Thanksgiving.

best moment this week: I had another appointment with the doctor this week. I love hearing that little heartbeat and it was perfect at about 156!

what I'm looking forward to: Thanksgiving, decorating for Christmas, and our anatomy scan is scheduled for a week before Christmas. We have a lot to look forward to through the rest of the year!

Baby #2: 14 Weeks

Wednesday, November 12, 2014


baby's size: lemon

how I'm feeling: Cullen had a cold over the weekend and shared with me. Being pregnant with a cold is not much fun. They last longer and there is not much I can take for it. Hopefully it won't last too much longer, but for now, I'll keep a box of Kleenex in arms reach.

best moment this week: Pregnancy-wise, it was a pretty boring week. But since Cullen was sick on Friday, I got to stay home from work and snuggle with him all day. I hate that he was sick, but snuggles like that are getting more rare, so I take advantage when I can!

what I'm looking forward to: My next appointment is on Monday. I can't wait to hear that little heartbeat again!

Baby #2: 13 Weeks

Thursday, November 6, 2014



baby's size: peach

how I'm feeling: Large! I know I'm not really, but I feel pretty big for only being 13 weeks. I'm already wearing only maternity bottoms; I haven't been able to button my regular pants for over a month. Despite my protruding tummy, I have lost a little weight so far. I did the same with Cullen in the first trimester; I think it has to do with cutting out coffee/soda/tea, drinking a ton of water, and getting full a lot faster. Other than than the acne that I don't remember having the first time around, I feel great! The little bit of queasiness that I had is gone and I'm starting to get some of my energy back.

best moment this week: Finally telling the world!

what I'm looking forward to: The second trimester and more energy!

Halloween 2014

Tuesday, November 4, 2014


This little Strongman had an absolute blast trick-or-treating this year! The grandparents came over to hand out candy so Corey and I could take Cullen door-to-door. Cullen quite literally drug the two of us down the street to get to the next house as quickly as possible. We couldn't get him to say "Trick-or-Treat", but he did wish everyone a Happy Halloween when they gave him candy.  He also tried to give kisses to everyone's dogs. I think Halloween is he perfect holiday for this social little boy!

He requested that each piece of candy be opened as soon as he got it. So he snacked on pretzels and skittles between houses. And once we went to a respectable number of houses, we headed home where Cullen's grandparents sneaked him even more candy, and he helped hand out candy to other neighborhood kids.

I loved watching his face light up every time he was gifted a piece of candy and every time trick-or-treaters showed up at our door. We all had such a great night watching him really experience this holiday!
