15 Weeks! Will LB have a little brother or sister??



Eeeek!! As you may (or may not) know, I have no patience!! So now that I am in the 15th week I have made an appointment to find out what we are having! In the beginning of this pregnancy I was convinced it was another little boy, but now I am not so sure. There are so many old wives tales to go off of and so many were wrong for Landon, but quite a few were right. We will know for sure though very very soon! What's your guess??

How far along? 15 Weeks

Total weight gain: 0 lbs

Maternity clothes: The clothes that I am wearing in this pic are not maternity but... not for long! Everything is getting pretty tight! I think with Landon I wore my regular clothes (skinny jeans included) until I was 22 weeks! Not the case with the baby!

Stretch marks: No

Best moment this week: I think I had one day that I didn't feel nauseous... it was wonderful!

Miss anything: Cocktails, beer, martini's, wine... (this will probably be here throughout the pregnancy)

Movement: Itty bitty flutters

Food cravings: Soft Batch Cookies and Cactus Cooler

Anything making you queasy or sick? Diclegis has been helping but I feel icky more often than not :( Between feeling like crap and good sleep a rarity (I have never been a good sleeper) I am really hoping the end is near!

Gender: Will find out soon! Very soon!

Labor signs: No

Belly button in or out? In

Happy or Moody? My Husband says moody lol!!! ... but I say HAPPY!

Looking forward to: Seeing the baby in a 3D/4D ultrasound, FINDING OUT IF IT'S BLUE OR PINK!!! and having a little mini vacay at the beach :)

Hope you all have a great weekend!

13 Weeks


How far along? 13 Weeks

Total weight gain: 0 lbs

Maternity clothes: Not yet... but I am loving all things stretchy waistband and drawstring :)

Stretch marks: No

Best moment this week: Celebrating my little dudes Second Birthday and seeing Baby Number Two in the 12 week ultrasound :)

Miss anything: Cocktails, beer, martini's, wine...

Movement: Each and every time I have seen this baby in an ultrasound it is moving and grooving! I am not exactly sure if what I'm feeling is the baby just yet but I imagine it won't be much longer until its movement is totally distinguishable! 

Food cravings: Still Peaches, Strawberries and Candy!

Anything making you queasy or sick? I actually got a prescription for Diclegis from my Dr earlier this week and am feeling SO much better. It's a miracle drug! I'm so bummed I haven't had it the last three months :(

Gender: Too soon to tell...

Labor signs: No

Belly button in or out? In

Happy or Moody? Happy and Happier!

Looking forward to: Seeing my Family this week :)

Landon is TWO!!!


Two days ago we celebrated Landon's Second Birthday. It still feels like yesterday that I was in the hospital giving birth to him. Crazy how the time flies! I went back and forth about having a big party but with the sickness that has come along with this pregnancy there was no way I could commit to much. The guilt over it comes and goes but I figured I would take him some place fun and celebrate as soon as I feel like I can leave the couch for longer than an hour :(
Our day was spent at home. Waking up to tons of balloons followed by opening presents then out to a nice dinner. It was actually pretty perfect! I am excited to be able to go and celebrate with my little guy soon though!






Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!! I love you to the moon and back!!!!

12 Weeks!





Here we go.... :)


How far along? 12.5 Weeks

Total weight gain: 0 lbs

Maternity clothes: Not just yet... I have gone into some maternity stores and picked up a few pieces that I thought were cute. I can still wear my regular clothes but they are getting tight fast!! I will definitely be in maternity clothes a lot faster with this pregnancy than I was with the last one!

Stretch marks: Fingers crossed I get through another pregnancy without any.

Best moment this week: Having a fun day date with just me and my little man then going on another date with my husband last night :)

Miss anything: Cocktails on a hot summer day :(

Movement: Still a little too early...

Food cravings: Peaches, Strawberries and Candy!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Morning, afternoon and night sickness has kicked my butt with this pregnancy :(

Gender: Too soon to tell...

Labor signs: No

Belly button in or out? In

Happy or Moody? Elated!!!

Looking forward to: Celebrating Landon's Birthday! How is my baby TWO already??

Did you hear?!?


We thought we would start our Fourth of July off with little fireworks of our own...
Landon is going to be a big brother!!!

My husband and I are so excited to add to our little family! 
This pregnancy (so far) has been completely different than when I was pregnant with Landon. Morning, afternoon and night sickness... ugh!!!! I haven't felt "good" in what seems like an eternity. With the first trimester over, I am hoping I get back to my normal self soon! 
Everything else is wonderful! I feel so lucky, blessed, fortunate... it's all just amazing!!!

Twelve week pregnancy board coming very soon!!

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

Easter Weekend Update


I can't believe it's Easter and summer is just around the corner!! Things have been moving right along for us, moving a little too quickly if you ask me!
Landon is doing wonderfully!!! This little guy amazes me each and every day! He is very talkative and his vocabulary is off the charts. He comes up with the funniest things to say and almost always has me cracking up :). The other morning I opened the fridge to get him some milk and he said, "got milk?!" A couple of his other favorite words and phrases are:
I love you
See you
Chocolate Milk
Oh come here
Come on now
Cool car
Airplane
Tylenol
Aluminum
And he basically states everything he sees, all the time. Ie; fan, light, car, truck, window, moon, baby, potty, stroller, high chair, paper, iPad, iPod, bucket, ball, ect. He's pretty much at the point where you can ask him to say anything and he will. And as we recently found out (the hard way) he loves saying what we say... a little parrot :0 Time to really watch what we say!!
Potty training is right around the corner for us. For the last month he comes to me and tells me every time he's going to the bathroom. Part of me wants to wait but he's showing interest in the potty and I feel like he gets it... he understands the concept of going in the potty. Fingers crossed!!
Landon is the happiest outside. He'll spend an hour throwing rocks. He also loves to sweep, rake or basically do anything that we're doing.

This morning we went to a local Easter Egg Hunt. There was tons to do and Landon was able to run around for a couple of hours. All was good until he saw the field of Easter Eggs, then he just wanted the eggs. After kicking and screaming for 15 minutes Landon was able to go get some eggs and all was good once again.

Hope you are all enjoying the Holiday weekend!

Hello Spring!!

It has been a minute since I have been able to sit down and work on my blog. There have been so many changes and I have been so so so busy... oh and my baby is almost two! Which in my case means I am constantly on the go and relishing the few moments of downtime I actually have!
Spring is here and oh so many projects are under way at our (new) house. I promise (for real this time ;)) to do better about updating the blog and keeping everyone updated on Landon - who by the way is not only the most intelligent 20 month old I know but also one of the cutest! I know I'm his mom, but seriously!
Here are a couple of pics from the other morning and I promise to post again soon about what we've been up to!

Merry Christmas! A day late...



It has been a complete whirlwind lately. So much going on and busy beyond belief! I'm hoping to have to time to update the blog and spend more time on here in the near future but for now, we wanted to wish you a wonderful holiday season!

Trick or Treat!

I can't believe Halloween is less than a week away! This weekend the local Mommy Organization we belong to put on a "Trick or Treat" morning where the little kiddo's could get dressed up and grab some sweet goodies. So this morning that is exactly where we headed!
Landon loved going into the small businesses and picking out his own candy and putting it in his bag. He was such a trooper! And oh so stinkin' cute!!!
I also found out that when I leave him with his bag of candy - he can, and will open them :0

Pumpkin Patch

What a difference a year makes! This time last year Landon wasn't even walking and this year he ran all over the place. Although there were a lot of pumpkins, farm animals and things to play on he had the best time running around. He is so into exploring and it is amazing to watch him find excitement in the little things... like throwing hay!
He keeps a constant smile on my face :)

Hello Fall!

I can't believe it's Fall! I have to admit the summer is my favorite time of year. How can you beat laying out in the warm sun, working on your tan while sipping a blended cocktail?! Fall definitely comes in second though. It means football has started and the Holiday's are just around the corner. For me that means decorating, an excuse to go shopping (not that I needed one) and lots and lots of baking and cooking!

We still have Landon's 15 month appointment to go to so I don't have his updated stats, but he is doing great! He is talking up a storm saying all kinds of words. He has become an expert at copying the things we do. He has an endless supply of energy and sometimes that parlays into a stubborn tantrum because he does not always get what he wants... but I guess thats all part of it. Although it's far from funny, sometimes I can't help but laugh!

We have been out and about a lot! We have been to baseball games, football games, taking little trips and spending a lot of time on the go. I promise I'll get better at updating the blog. I'm hoping with the cooler weather we will find more creative activities indoors! :)

There is a lot of exciting stuff going on and I hope to be able to share it all soon!

We woke up to an incredibly cold morning today. The air was still and the sun was shinning... it was a perfect fall morning! So off to the park we went!

Landon is One Photo Shoot

I love getting this face photographed! I am now looking back at his newborn, three, six and nine month pics and am so happy I have them. I can not believe a year has gone by so fast and my sweet little baby is now a precious little boy. He has grown up so much! Today at the grocery store he said "Hi!" and "Bye" to everyone that walked by our cart. People would stop and talk to him and he would talk right back - some words, some babble. He makes me smile so much my cheeks hurt every day! He is such an incredible little being and I can not (but I totally can) wait to watch him continue to grow into the person he will become!

And how cute is this face!?!
