Lucy Speaks.

If I don't write it down I won't remember it!

Jonathan and Lucy were kicking a ball while I was fixing breakfast. I ran out and kicked the ball before Jonathan could and Lucy yelled, "Mom you are killing me!"
Now where could she have heard that?

Jonathan had to run into a store to get something and Lucy and I sat in the car. When he got back she said, "Dad, were you taking your time?"

Christmas 2011

 I think we were the only people in the world who had to wake their kid up to open Christmas presents! Lucy eventually got up at 8:30 and was very excited to see that Santa came to fill up her stocking!
Every time Lucy would pull out something she would say, "Thank you, Santa."

 She got a camera and when she opened it she said, "Just like my mommy!"
 After the stocking were open we opened up the presents from mommy and daddy. The joy of being an only child is that she got to open everyone's presents.

 She said, "Take a picture of me and Autumn."
 Daddy's favorite gift that Lucy received was the AirSwimmer shark. These two have had more fun with this giant shark!
 We didn't want to do a lot for Christmas because I'm tired of cleaning up toys! We got Lucy a dress up dress and she was very pleased!

 After we celebrated our Christmas at home we went over to the farm house to celebrate Christmas with my sisters and my parents.

Lucy enjoyed playing with the Coble's Christmas Presents too.
 So did I.
 These turtle toys brought back so many childhood memories I just had to ride. It was harder than I remember. Maybe it's because I'm 18 weeks pregnant.
 Uncle Ryan got in on the action.
 And even daddy.
 We feasted on Seafood and Brie Cheese! We actually ate like we had never eaten before!

After our feast the girls colored and the adults enjoyed each other.
Merry Christmas!

The End.

Christmas Eve.

 We are ready for Christmas! I thought I would start my Christmas Eve post off with my Christmas Decor. Better Late than Never.

My china cabinet in the foyer.

 My ring of Chritmas Cards that I made in Mops.
 The Tree.
 The living room
 The mantle.

 Today Manna, G-daddy and Emily came over to our house to celebrate Christmas Eve with us. Lucy loved having her family over at her house!

 We went to the 7 o'clock church service tonight. Lucy went with us instead of going to the nursery. She was pretty good. She got to participate in her first communion too. I wish I would have taken a picture. She did it like a professional! After church we went back home where she got to open one gift!

 She opened her Christmas pajamas! They had matching slippers and she was so excited!
 Before bed we put out our reindeer food.
 And we put out Santa's Cookies and Milk.
The End.

18 weeks.

Baby #2-18 weeks

I think I look double the size in the second picture compared to picture #1.
This is my hoe-down dress.

How Far Along: 18 weeks! (This is going by so fast!)

Size of baby: The baby is the size of a sweet potato! It measures in at 5.6 inches long and weighs about 6.7 ounces. (Except I think our baby is bigger than this. Why? Just a feeling.)

Weight Gain: 5 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Yes. Pants. I am wearing a mix of maternity and non maternity tops. What ever is long enough. My go to outfit is a pair of leggings and tunic!

Gender: We are not going to find out! I go back and forth on what I think it is. Everything about this pregnancy is the opposite of my pregnancy with Lucy which makes me think boy but the baby's heart beat is really high, which makes me think girl. Does it matter? Not at all! We are just happy to have this baby!

Movement: At 17 weeks I officially felt the baby kick. At 17 1/2 weeks Jonathan was able to feel the baby kick! That's another reason I think this baby is huge! Huge or Hyper! I didn't feel Lucy until 19-20 weeks.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I love Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Sandwiches. Mustard. Tuna Fish Sandwiches but I try to limit myself to one a week.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.

Sleep: I have no trouble going to sleep at night but between 1:30-4 I am wide awake! Last night I woke up and I was wide awake. I am glad I was awake because Baby Bost was up as well and I got to feel he/she kick for at least an hour!

Symptoms: I've felt good this past week.

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling the baby move!

What I look forward to:  My parents come into town today! Christmas Eve at my house tomorrow with Family! Christmas morning with my baby girl and husband! Christmas Dinner with my parents and sisters! Next week seeing Jonathan's family! ( I wrote this yesterday so its a little behind)

Big Sister Moment: Lucy has been lifting up my shirt to hug, kiss and talk to the baby. I think she is getting excited about being a big sister!

Thursday Play Day

 Yesterday Taylor and Emily were at my house by 8. We had to get to the store to do our Christmas Dinner shopping before it got too busy! I'm glad we got there early because the store was starting to fill up by the time we had finished! Taylor and Lucy were excellent in the store!

After our walmart trip we went to my house to play a little xbox. Taylor and Lucy love to take turns dying in Star Wars.

 Taylor running from me when I asked him if I could take a picture!
 This is what the side of Taylor looks like. This little kid hates having his picture made!
 We also watched a movie and we all snuggled on the long couch!
 I love this little girl.
 Taylor and Emily left around 2 and we decided to play with some model magic. Model Magic will make you hungry so we had to take a break to eat some cheese.

  We also played in Lucy's room with her dolls. She has quite the imagination. I love to hear what will come out of her mouth!

 Lucy got her hair cut on Tuesday and it looks super cute short.
 The End.
