13 Week Recap

I was 13 weeks this past Wednesday! 

This pregnancy has been easier so far compared to my first. I really wasn't even that sick with Paige, mostly just nauseous weeks 8-12. But this second time around I was only nauseous the first few weeks. I have been so tired with this pregnancy!! Almost every afternoon from 2-4, I can barely keep my eyes open. All I want to do is just lay down. I have been a lot hungrier this time too. I'm trying to eat healthy, but we only have a few more weeks left in the States until we head back to East Asia. So I am enjoying american food right now!

How Far Along: 13 Weeks

Size of Baby: 3 inches long, about the size of a peach

Weight Gain: 5 lbs-I know wowsers!! I didn't gain that much until I was 20 weeks with Paige!

Gender: We think boy

Movement: Not yet, but I can't wait!

Sleep: It's been okay, could be worse, could be better. I'm already using the body pillow. 

Maternity Clothes: yep, most of my pants are maternity now, no shirts yet. 

Symptoms: I'm just exhausted. 

Aversions: Nothing really.

Cravings: Ice Cream, fountain drink coke. I'm not giving into these very often, but I want to!

What I Miss: Having energy. Did i mention i'm tired?

Best Moment of the Week: Transitioning to maternity pants, i'm so much more comfortable now. 

What I'm Looking Forward To: Finding out the gender and feeling this baby move!

We're having a BABY!

We are excited to announce baby #2 is on the way!!!! I'm a little over 12 weeks and due the first week of March!

We found out we were pregnant on June 23rd. Just like with Paige, I took a very early pregnancy test that was negative. However, after a few days Daniel and I were getting a pretty good idea that something was up. We decided I would take a test on Tuesday, but just like with Paige, I was determined to know first, so I took one Monday afternoon.  It was positive!! 

Little Paigers was sick this day, and a little confused. But now if we ask her where the baby is she points to my tummy. I'll try to do a 13 week recap this week. Again, internet is rare where we are staying, but I really want to do the weekly updates like I did with Paige.

Here are a few belly shots. Don't worry, I'm much bigger now, I've already put on several pounds!

Stay tuned for all the details coming on the 13 week recap!

Up and About

Wow! Long time no see!!! I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted!

I'll just try to do a quick recap in pictures. We are traveling right now and internet is sporadic at best, so I'll try to post when I can.

Here's what we've been up to lately!

One Saturday the local library had dogs and you could come and play with them. They were really well trained and extremely good and calm around the children. Paige is in love with animals, especially dogs, so she went crazy. She had no problem getting close and playing with them.

One day I made finger paint using greek yogurt and food coloring. I would've preferred to skip the food coloring and use kool aid powder, but I didn't have any, so there ya go. 

At first Paige just painted with it, but once she figured out she could eat it she was all about it!

She was such a mess, but she had fun and it was bath night anyways!

I bought this little denim jumper dress last Christmas when it was on clearance, and it is just so cute. 

We had some family pics taken and these are a few of my faves.

Getting this cutie to smile on demand is not easy. I was really just thankful she kept the bow in. She's anti bow and barrette right now. 

We had a 2 day road trip to the northeast a few weeks ago. We will be heading back to Illinois the end of September, then finally headed back to East Asia!!!! Paige is a great car traveler, she entertains herself pretty well.

And eventually she sleeps for 30 minutes. 

We love our little travel buddy!

This morning I took her to a nearby park, and she had a lot of fun! The weather wasn't too hot, which made it really nice!

Paige is almost 18 months, I'll try to do her 15-18 month recap when I can. We won't be doing an 18 month check up so i'll just have to guess on her stats.

Okay, that's us!
