Merry Christmas!


I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas with your family and friends. We had a great Christmas. Gabrielle had a great time. She opened way too many presents and got so many nice things. She loved it. But, what she loved the most was throwing away all of the wrapping paper. ūüôā She was so cute. She also did fairly well running on less sleep and not as many naps as she typically has. I also had fun putting her in all of her new outfits and making her look cute (not that she needs help!).









Pregnancy wise I am doing well. I am 14 weeks. Hello second trimester! I am still very tired, but slowly starting to have a little more energy. Little things still make my queasy,¬† but overall I feel great. I have felt the baby move once or twice. Just little bitty flutters. I am starting to get a little bit of a belly. But, right now it looks like a muffin top. So, it isn’t very cute. That is all the updating I have for you all.









Keeping a Secret is Hard Work!


Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. I have this really incredible secret I have been keeping for the past 2 months. I was afraid if I blogged I would be tempted¬† to let spill out. So here it goes…have you ever been so excited yet terrified at the same time? That is the emotion that I am feeling right now.¬†Have you¬†ever had to keep a secret for¬†2 months when¬†you are feeling that way? I have.¬†¬†Well either you know¬†what I am talking about or you really want to know. So, here it is!¬†My little family of 3 will soon be 4. Yes that is right, Gabrielle is going to be a big sister! I will have 2 under 2 (well, only for a couple of months)! I can hardly believe it.¬† I am¬†due around June¬†25th.¬†¬†¬† Here is how we announced it to our parents:

Big Sister Gabrielle!

I am hoping and praying for a healthy pregnancy, also a NORMAL pregnancy would be nice. At first I felt great! Around 7 weeks the morning sickness set in. Nothing terrible, so I guess I shouldn’t complain. But, I will just a tad.¬†I hate feeling nauseous. I hate feeling hungry but everything sounds disgusting. I have also been EXHAUSTED!¬†I was never this way when I was pregnant with Gabrielle. I have¬†heard people talk about how tired they were, but I never quite got it…until now. I¬†feel like my body has been glued to the couch, and I am sure Jared would agree with¬†me. Even though it sounds like I am complaining a lot, the truth is I¬† love being pregnant! I know people think I am crazy. But, I do! I love it. Even when I am exhausted, and want to throw up, it is really amazing to know that there is a baby growing and developing inside me. It feels more real this time, probably just because I have gone through this before, and have seen the end result.

I am going to try to keep this thing updated. I would like to try to blog once a week. I want to document this pregnancy, better than the 1st. There are so many things I can’t remember about being pregnant with Gabrielle. I want to remember, so if we decide to have another baby I can look back and see what I went through.

So ready or not blog followers, be ready for another wild and crazy pregnancy blog journey! ūüôā
