TLC day.

 Last Monday I got a phone call from Taylor asking if I could pick him up from school this Monday. I told him of course and asked if his mom had a meeting. He said, "No, I just want to come play your xbox." If I would known that an xbox would make you popular with the boys I would have gotten one in high school. So on Monday, after dance, Lucy and I picked up Taylor. Since Lucy was so good in dance class we got to go by McDonalds for a treat. Both of the kids wanted a mcdouble and french fries.
 After we had our treat it was time to play.
 Lucy got a little bored watching Taylor play star wars so she decided to pull out all of her dvds and walk on them.
I made Gumbo for dinner and neither of the kids wanted to eat it. They ate rice and soy sauce instead!

The End.

Cookie and Papaw

 Cookie and Papaw (Lucy no longer calls him Bapaw) came for a visit this weekend. I would like to say they came to see us but I would be lying! They came to see Lucy. We met them for lunch on Friday and they took off with Lucy bear until Saturday night. Jonathan and I didn't really know what to do without our kiddo. We went on a date Friday night. (we were home by 7 and I was asleep by 9) We did enjoy the alone time. Saturday we did a little shopping for new curtains and then we sat around and stared at each other. Lucy on the other hand was busy busy! She went to Chuck E Cheese, Chickfila, and got to spend the night in a hotel! Talk about special!

The End.

Happy 3 1/2 birthday Lucy.

Last Monday, Lucy turned 3 1/2 years old. Since Lucy has a summer birthday her school lets the kids celebrate their 1/2 birthdays at school. So we ordered a cupcake cake and pretended like a 1/2 birthday was worth celebrating! Lucy was very excited but now she is very confused on when her birthday actually is!

The cupcake cake.

 My precious 3.5 year old girl.

23 weeks!

Baby Baby #2- 23 weeks. 16 more to go!

How far along:  22 weeks!

Size of baby:  Our baby is the size of a pomegranate. (I've actually never seen a pomegranate this size, maybe there are some in the Amazon or Texas that are this big but I've never seen it!)
Our baby is about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs 12.7-20.8 ounces.

Weight Gain: 8 pounds. But to be real honest I have been at 8.5 half of the week. I just got lucky this morning. I only admitted that so if next week I am at 9 or 9.5 pounds it won't sound too crazy!

Maternity Clothes: I wear what fits. Mostly maternity. I still need to get some maternity leggings.

Gender: We did not find out.I just keep telling myself it could go either way! It has to be one or the other. I washed and hung all of Lucy's old clothes and put them away in the nursery. If the baby is a girl we are set. If it is a boy we are going shopping on the way home from the hospital!

Movement: I love feeling our baby kick! It is the most amazing feeling! Jonathan and I lay in bed at night and watch it move and kick!

Food Cravings/Aversions: Apples and Bananas.

What I miss: Caffeine. I am getting so tired lately. I trick myself in the morning and have two cups of decaf and pretend like it's regular coffee. 

Sleep:   My hips hurt at night. I am constantly switching sides!

Symptoms: I get tired during the day. I've had tons of energy up until this point!

Best Moment of the Week: I cleaned out the nursery this week and put all of Lucy's old clothes away in the drawers and closet.

What I look forward to: Naming the baby. ( I should really get on that) Start decorating the nursery!

Grasshopper in the ear.

Lucy has been complaining about a grasshopper in her ear. I took her to the doctor today and turns out both of her ear drums burst. We started steroid drops and antibiotics.

Lucy after the doctor. My baby who doesn't take naps just didn't feel good.

Random Pictures from the week.

This week I washed all of Lucy's old clothes.

 Lucy loving on her Autumn dog.

 We went to the doctor twice this week. Once for a cough and the next for our three year check up. Yes it's 6 months late. Lucy measured in the 95%.
The End.

Best Friend Day.

 Emma Grace came over yesterday. Lucy was very excited about this as we all were. Mama is running low on energy these days and can't keep the same pace as I use to so it was nice for Lucy to have a friend who could run at her level!

 I had a bathtub picture posted. I took it down. You couldn't see any private parts bottoms or breasts I am sorry if I offended anyone.

The End.

How far along:  22 weeks!

Size of baby:  Our baby is the size of a papaya! It measures from 10.5" to 11.8" and weighs in at 12.7-20.8 ounces. I'm going to round that out and say it weighs 1 lb.

Weight Gain: 8 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: I wear what fits. Mostly maternity. I am in great need to find some maternity leggings.

Gender: We did not find out. I go back and forth on what I think it is. I would rather not say what I think it is because I would hate to be wrong! I feel like I should have a feeling on whether or not my baby is a boy or girl. I knew Lucy was a girl! I have no clue with this one!

Movement: The baby is a night owl like it's daddy. When I lay down at night that is when the baby gets up.

Food Cravings/Aversions: Apples. Whenever I want a piece of chocolate or cake I eat an apple. Sleeping on my stomach.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.

Sleep: I have started to toss and turn at night. My hips hurts! I can't sleep on my back. 

Symptoms: I get tired during the day. I've had tons of energy up until this point!

Best Moment of the Week: I've started working on the nursery. This week I washed all of Lucy's baby clothes and hung them in the closet. I also have found a few accessories for the room.

What I look forward to: Naming the baby. ( I should really get on that) Finishing the nursery. 
The End.

Lucy had so much fun! Lucy and Grant are a month a part and are just the best of friends. They go to church together and preschool together! They both have a joy for life and love to have fun!

We finished our play date at Chickfila. The kids had fun and the moms had fun!
