Progress Report

Here it 20 week prego pic.
As you can see, there has been a lot of growth since my 6 week picture.
15 lbs of growth in fact! Eeeeek!

Yesterday I had my 20 week ultrasound and from what I could tell, everything looks good. Little baby boy was VERY fact, the tech said it took about 15 minutes longer than it usually does, just cause the baby wouldn't stay still long enough for him to get the necessary measurments. Looks like we've got an active one on our hands!

Monday was Audrey's first day of gymnastics. I thought she looked so cute in her leotard that I had to take a picture!
She had a blast in her class! She made several new friends (as I knew she would...this girl is not shy). I can't say she was the most coordinated kid in the class (she's got her mother's skills I guess) but she had fun and thats all that counts.

So of course Wylie wanted me to take a picture of him too. Here he is doing his best to smile with a mouth full of goldfish.

A while back we surprised the kids with a trip to Disneyland.

It was Wylie's first trip.

We managed to get through the day with only a couple meltdowns (from the kids, not the parents) despite the HOT weather. Overall it was a great day and we all had a blast!

Just a few quick pics to share

Its been a few months since I've posted any pictures on my blog, so here ya go! My kiddos are getting so big!
These were taken last week when Michael's parents took Audrey and Wylie to Knott's Berry Farm. This one is my favorite :)

I'm sure most of you already know but we found out we're having another little boy...yeah! We're super excited. I'm 18 weeks now. Almost half way there!

I've been feeling pretty good for the most part. I'm still having morning sickness but I have found the WONDER DRUG!!! A couple months ago, my dr prescribed Zofran for my nausea and it is amazing! As long as I take it every morning before I get out of bed (and lay there for at least 30 minutes or so) then I don't throw up...which is wonderful! Where was this drug during my other pregnancies!!!

Another fun thing I'm dealing with already is ankle swelling. Why the heck its happening this early in my pregnancy, I have no idea. Just for fun I guess.

Every time I go see my doctor, she tells me that I should slow down on my weight gain. Just what every pregnant woman wants to hear right? Don't they know how sensitive I am emotions are all over the map!

Speaking of emotions...I'd say that the typical non-pregnant Me is pretty patient and easy-going. Hmmm, yeah, not so much any more. My poor kids. They get the worst of it. Its a good thing they have a short memory and 30 minutes after I snap at them they hug me and say that i'm their favorite mommy in the whole world...(when in my head i'm saying "thats cause I'm your only mommy in the whole world!")

Anyway, on a more positive note, I love feeling my little guy move around in my tummy. I am so excited to meet him. The only thing between now and then is one heck of a HOT summer!

happy birthday, sweet girl

On Saturday we celebrated Audrey's 5th birthday party with lots of friends and family at our house.
We had a wonderful time!
Both Audrey and I agreed that it was our favorite party that we've had so far.
My favorite part was watching the kids dance, boogie and limbo. It was so cute!!

We made fruit loop and licorice bracelets.

We ate a lot!
Especially little Wylie-man.

Michael spent the night before the party making yummy red velvet cupcakes and a delicious strawberry cake.
Audrey's got one heck of a daddy!

Audrey's favorite part was opening presents (go figure).

After opening every present, she would run and give hugs to the gift-giver. It was super cute. I didn't even have to ask her to say thank you.

We were so lucky to have family visit from out of town for the party. My parents and Nana Kerry came from New Mexico.
Here is a picture of Audrey and her Auntie Sara.

Daddy was beat after the party...he actually passed out on the floor not long after this picture was taken.
Actually we were all beat. We had such a fun-filled day and we are so thankful for our friends and family. Audrey is so blessed to have such wonderful people who love and support her.
And we are so blessed to have our sweet FIVE YEAR OLD girl!

6 weeks

For those of you who don't believe its possible to show when you're only 6 weeks pregnant, here's a picture to prove you wrong.

I guess I could have saved money on the pregnancy tests and just waited a few days!

So far I've been feeling really good...very little nausea, not too tired...COMPLETELY different than the other 2 pregnancies (but then again, I'm only 6 weeks...things could change at any moment).

Audrey is SUPER excited. She kisses my belly like 5 times a day. At night, right before going to bed, she kisses my belly and says "goodnight sweet baby, i love you." And she is really good at reminding me to take my prenatal vitamins :)

She's also very excited to share a room with her brother. Papa (my dad) has made bunk beds for them to share...very similar to the picture below, except he made drawers to store underneath the bottom bunk...Have I ever mentioned how awesome it is to have a dad who is an amazing carpenter?!?

I, of course, have been having tons of fun planning their room and picking out all the fabric for their bedding. Since we won't know the sex of the baby for quite a while, their room will keep me busy in the mean time. Here are a few pictures that are serving as a bit of inspiration for their room. We're gonna keep the walls really neutral with a "board and batten" wainscoting treatment on the bottom, and a warm grey paint on top. Both kids will have matching striped comforters (made by me and my mother-in-law...well mostly her, but I'll be there to keep her company :) and then we'll have some fun, bright pillows...kinda like the ones above, but different fabric (obviously the stripes will go on Wy's bed and the floral on Audrey's). My dad made the kids an easel...just like the one above...for Christmas, so that'll be in there. Oh, and we're gonna put rain gutter bookshelves on one of the walls too. Audrey LOVES to read, and Wylie is really starting to enjoy it too, so it'll be nice to have all their books easily accessible.

Wylie, as usual, has just been going with the swing of things. You ask him if he's gonna have a new baby and he gives you the typical "uh-huh."

Oh, speaking of Wylie...we've been taking him to speech therapy for the past 12 weeks or so...and he's starting to make major progress! He's to the point that he'll pretty much repeat any word you ask him to say (depending on his mood), which is a complete 180 from a couple weeks ago. Now I'm not saying that you can always understand the words, but at least he's willing to try. We're very proud of our little man!

Well, thats our update for now...I'll try to post more belly pics from time to time.

Let the fun begin!

Here's one more picture that I forgot to add. Me and my sweet little man...oooh I could just eat him up!

Merry Christmas!!

Our 2010 Christmas Card (Photo by Dan, Design by me)
Its been far too long since posting, so hopefully these pictures will make up for it.
Several weeks back, we drove down to Coronado to meet up with our good friend Dan and Sara. He's an amazing photographer, so of course we always hit him up for family photos. This year we had Michael's family join in on the fun.

Michael's mom's Christmas Card

The following photos were scanned in, so if they aren't super clear, thats why.
It was super windy...just check out my hair!

Thanks Dan, for the beautiful photos!
Merry Christmas everyone!!
