Aubrey's Room

We have started getting Aubrey's room ready. Not to much to do in there since we opted not to repaint. We figure in a couple years we will redo her room like we did Addy's so why waste our time painting when the light purple looks fine for now. I actually like it a lot even though the bedding we picked out has no purple in it. It still seems to go together nicely :)

Everything is the same from Addy's nursery except for the small shelf and the bedding.

Aubrey Update...

Or Baby Aubrey as Addison likes to call her and all of her dolls! :)

We are now 25 weeks along with Aubrey and its getting more and more real to me that we will have another little girl in just 3 short months! She is moving so much more now and it amazes me how she is already able to give me a good rib kick when I'm sitting down. She must not like being smushed cause when I bend forward she goes nuts.

She also must already love her big sister to the moon and back cause any time Addison is talking or touching my tummy she wiggles away in there. Addison isn't patient enough to fell her but definitely knows Aubrey is in there.

I have my glucose test in two weeks where I get to drink the nasty orange drink that makes me jittery and then have vial after vial of blood drawn. Should be fun!

Then after that I believe we will be already at 2 week appointments with the Dr and an ultrasound in a little over a month to chart her growth.

Just 2 more weeks till the third trimester! My how time really is flying with this one!! :)

More updates on Aubrey in a few weeks!

Busy weekend!

Wow we had such a busy weekend last weekend! Rehearsal Dinner Friday night, Wedding Saturday and then a birthday party on Sunday! Almost needed to take off Monday to re coop!

Here are a few pictures that were taken of Miss A while we were out and about!

Cutest flower girl ever! :)

Fall School Pictures

Today was picture day at school and we got some really good ones of Addison. Shutterfly is loving me lately :)

Baking with Addison :)

I told Matt last night that I was so happy I have a little girl because baking with her is so much fun. Does she really get how to bake yet? No, but she does love helping me which I enjoy. The whole time we were making these yummy cupcakes for her school friends and my work she kept saying "Smells yummy mommy", "Tastes yummy mommy". It was so sweet to see her get excited about making them and she even told me who all she wanted to give them too.

Here are our finished cupcakes (well the few we kept)

Addy eating hers :)

"Mommy's Helper"

After we were done together we unloaded the dishwasher, loaded it, did laundry and picked up. Addison has taking a liking to helping me with chores lately. Of course it can be faster to do it myself but I have to tell her no and go play a 100x while I work. So letting her help takes longer, is not always 100% how I would do it but if she likes it and wants to help I am more than happy to let her and enjoy spending that time with her. Yesterday she was so proud of herself for helping that she just kept telling Matt "I helping mommy" with a huge grin and would run back to me for more work :)

Oh how I am soaking up all this one on one time with her before Aubrey gets here. Things will be different with two but just as fun I imagine!

Addison's Big Girl Room

In order to make room for the newest edition Addison got to move to the bigger of our spare rooms and get a make over! We painted her walls a light Aqua blue (behr paint Aqua Breeze) and accented with light pink accesories. The bed we bought off craigs list and the night stand and dresser were from my Meme's house that I repainted white and redid the handles.

I love the way the room turned out. Very calm and hopefully a set up she can grow with for a few years. We didnt want to do anything to kiddieish for that very reason. Who can afford a room makeover every few years??

Here are a few pictures :)

2 year Stats

Addison had her 2 year check up Friday 10/14. Here are her current stats:

Weight - 24 lbs (10th percentile)

Height - 32 inches (25th percentile)

Dr Gold said she is doing great. Small for her age but then again she has never been big so that was of no concern. She didn't need any shots just the option of a flu shot but we never get them. Her or myself so we opted out. She doesn't have to come back for another year for a check up so we will make an appointment for that next year sometime.

Overall besides a little front office drama which I don't feel like going into it was a great visit. As always we love Dr Gold so all is well.

Remember that old cheer...

My Back hurts, my bras to tight, my hips shake from left to right. Yeah well they must have been cheering about pregnant women cause that is how i feel right about now.

I really don't remember the hip and back pain being this bad with Addison but then I looked up some old blog posts when I was pregnant with her and right about this time last time I was complaining about the same thing. This time I do think it is a little worse. My picking up Addison days may be soon over at least till were done baking this one. She isn't that heavy yet but these hips just cant take the bending and picking up motion. I have even had to call Matt in to the bathroom to help lift her out of the bath tub or on the times he is not available I make her climb out holding my hand. My heating pad is becoming my best friend :)

Well enough complaining for the day! Two more days till we go to the State Fair of Texas!!

23 Weeks

We had another dr appt today. Just the usual BP, weight and listening to the heartbeat. All went well and next week we will be at viability meaning that if I were to go into labor they would do everything possible to save precious Aubrey. We all know she is a good little girl and will stay put but it is comforting knowing were getting closer :)

Now on to the survey!

How far along? 23 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: +5 lbs (same as with Addy)

Maternity clothes? Pants and some shirts

Stretch marks? None

Sleep: Good. Really haven't had to pee much at night but as soon as I post this I will be up 3x tonight.

Best moment this week: Laying in bed feeling Aubrey rolling around

Movement: Oh yes! She has kicked it up a notch literally :)

Food cravings: Chocolate Milk and Honey Buns

Gender: Girl 100%

Labor Signs: Heck no

Belly Button in or out? In, but getting flatter

What I miss: Being able to pick Addy up with out my back giving out.

What I am looking forward to: The holidays! Oddly enough now that I have a kid I really do get excited for all the Fall holidays. This wasn't the case a few years ago pre kids.

Weekly Wisdom: Drink more water! This is more just a note to self than wisdom!

Milestones: A week away from being 6 full months along!

And what is a post with out a picture :) Here is my 22 week belly shot.

Addison is 2!!

My sweet Addison turned 2 yesterday! (Where has the time gone???) I seriously cant believe I am the mom of a two year old and another on the way!! Life is exactly how I hoped it would be with my family but I'm still amazed it has actually happened to me. Addison brings so much joy to my life! I couldn't imagine living another day with out her in it!

For her birthday we celebrated this past Saturday at Abbeys Play town in GP. If you have never been there you need to go! It is a wonderful place to take your toddlers since they only allow 7 and under during the open play and they are never too busy! It is greatness! The staff is very friendly too and at our party they handled every thing for us.

Here are a few pictures from the party :)
