Baby #2: 29 Weeks

Wednesday, February 25, 2015


baby's size: Acorn Squash

how I'm feeling: Great! Resting as much as possible and enjoying the sweet movements of our little girl. I am finally feeling those large rolling movements that move my entire stomach. As painful as they can be sometimes, I love seeing and feeling the reminder that our little girl is doing great!

best moment this week: We started painting the nursery this week and Cullen joined right in. He picked up a small roller and pretended to paint the walls right along with everyone else. He called the paint roller a "casserole" and was just about the cutest thing ever! Having him so excited to help us get ready for his little sister made me even more excited to see him turn into a big brother!

what I'm looking forward to: It really hit me this week that we will be a family of four in just about two months! I am looking forward to soaking up this time with Cullen and getting everything ready for bringing home another little one.

Baby #2: 28 Weeks

Wednesday, February 18, 2015


baby's size: Eggplant

how I'm feeling: Excited to officially be in the third trimester!

best moment this week: It was another low-key week for us. I'm at home resting as much as possible so other than getting ready for another little one, not much is going on.

what I'm looking forward to: More baby preparations. I think we are finally going to start painting and putting together the nursery this week!

Baby #2: 27 Weeks

Thursday, February 12, 2015


baby's size: Rutabaga? At my last ultrasound, the baby weighed 1 pound 4 ounces.

how I'm feeling: Pretty much the same as last week. I have been at home from work for two whole days now. I'm just trying to do as little as possible and hope this little girl keeps growing!

best moment this week: Although I got the news that I would need to be out of work until after the baby is here, it would have to be the ultrasound. I hate the reason I have to have so many ultrasounds, but I love getting to see our little girl!

what I'm looking forward to: Nesting! (Or at least as much as I'm able to do.) I've got some pretty little girl clothes to get washed and ready for our little one and lots to still do in the nursery! I am so excited to see everything come together!

A Dinosaur Birthday Party

Friday, February 6, 2015
A couple of weeks ago, we had friends and family over to celebrate Cullen's 2nd birthday dinosaur style. Our little two-a-saurus had a blast!


Much like last year, when our guests came in, we asked them to sign a book with a little message for Cullen. When they left, we sent them off with a favor of dino crayons and mini dinosaurs.



We decorated with tissue paper tassel garland and paper garlands that I put together and spray painted plastic dinosaurs. Our dinosaur themed food included Herbivore Food (fruit, veggies and dip, 7-layer dip and chips), Carnivore Food (meatballs, dinosaur shaped sandwiches, dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets), and cupcakes.







By far, the best part of the party was when we sang Happy Birthday to Cullen. Before we could even start the song, he sang it to himself. Several times. Hilarious! After a few tries and a little help from his Daddy, Cullen blew out his candles, we got to enjoy this super simple (and super yummy!) vanilla cake.




Cullen, I still cannot believe that you are already two years old. I love the little boy you are becoming. You are smart and funny and always find a way to make us laugh! I am so glad God has blessed us with such a sweet little boy. I can't wait to watch you grow and see what He has planned for you. Happy 2nd Birthday, Cullen!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate! It was a great party and Cullen had a blast!!!

Baby #2: 26 Weeks

Wednesday, February 4, 2015


baby's size: Head of Lettuce

how I'm feeling: Most days, my hips are sore after a day of having to sit and do a whole not of nothing (Doctor's orders.) And I'm still a little tired like last week, but other than that I don't really have any complaints.

best moment this week: Cullen had a high fever most of the week, so it was actually pretty rough for all of us. But I am happy to report that he is feeling much better. In pregnancy related news, our little girl is moving lots and seems to get stronger every week. Feeling those strong movements are very reassuring, especially considering the concern over her small size.

what I'm looking forward to: More nursery prep and another ultrasound to make sure our little girl is still growing well!
