Becoming a Mom of Two

Becoming a Mom of Two

I always knew I wanted to have two kids.  I never thought they would be five years apart in age but things don’t always workout as we planned.  Even though we didn’t plan it this way, I figured it would ultimately be easier since The Love Nugget would be older and more independent.

Easy, doesn’t really describe the transition we’ve had from one to two kids….

It hasn’t been horrible, but it hasn’t been as easy as I had hoped it would be.  From the moment The Love Nugget laid eyes on his little brother, he’s been stand offish.  To put it nicely.  He hasn’t held him has barely touched him and hasn’t really wanted to be near him.  Or me for that matter.  When he came to the hospital, he wouldn’t sit on the bed with me let alone with me holding the baby.   We had to bribe him just to sit near me to take a picture.

We Have a Graduate!

We Have a Graduate!

They say it over and over again but you  never know how true it is until you are living it.  Time really does go by so fast when you have little ones.

The Love Nugget just a few days old 🙂 

It wasn’t all that long ago that this little guy was just starting preschool.  Now we have a graduate!

A Productive, Relaxing and Fun Weekend

A Productive, Relaxing and Fun Weekend

Hi friends!

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!

We took advantage of a three-day weekend at home to get some things done around the house before baby arrives.   Which really could be any day now!  So crazy and exciting at once 🙂

Anyway, Friday evening we hung around the house, relaxed and watched a movie.

Saturday I taught my last weekend class until after baby comes.  I’m going to miss the Saturday class as it’s always packed and so much fun!

A Special Birthday for a Special Guy :-)

A Special Birthday for a Special Guy :-)

This past weekend we celebrated a certain special someone’s fifth birthday!!!!

I’m not quite sure how this little guy is already five.  Everyone always tells you to enjoy those first years as the time goes by so fast but you can’t understand it until you’re actually experiencing it.  Time definitely flies!  It feels like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.

What I plan to do with Baby Number 2

What I plan to do with Baby Number 2

Hi there!

Baby number two is getting closer to making his arrival.  I’ve still got two months left, hopefully no more, but I’m feeling anxious to meet our little guy!  As we approach that arrival date, I’ve begun thinking about things we did with The Love Nugget and what I want to do with our newest member to our family.

Exhausted but Relaxed…

Exhausted but Relaxed…

Hi everyone!

Long time no chat.  Sorry I just had a lot going on last week and have been feeling quite exhausted lately.  Probably a combination of a few things.  I’m almost in the third trimester when they say exhaustion returns.  I’m working out a little more intensely since my placenta previa is gone which feels great but I do find I’m more tired after.  Lastly I’ve just been busy with less time to actually sit and relax.  This week will be a little more mellow so I’m looking forward to some down time.

Anyway, like I said above, my placenta previa is gone!!!!!  I had a doctor’s appointment last week and was thrilled to hear that news.  The not so great news was that our little dude is breech 🙁  One thing after another with this kid!  Luckily I’m only 26 weeks so still have some time for him to flip.  Fingers are triple crossed that he makes his way into the right direction.  I have an appointment in a few weeks to check on him before we take a short flight to Seattle.  If he hasn’t flipped by then I’m going to start some acupuncture and chiropractic treatments.  Any other tips?

Along with feeling more exhausted lately, I’ve been feeling a little more irritable.  Even with a few nights out last week with friends I’ve been much more on edge at home with my boys.  Especially The Love Nugget.  I’m sure some of that is the never-ending rain we’ve been having which has cooped us up indoors.  BUT I’m sure a huge part of it is pregnancy hormones….  Oh how I can’t wait to be done with this pregnancy!

Back to those girls nights though…  Last Wednesday a few friends and I went to Chefs Table for dinner which is always amazing.  Then we went to Studio Movie Grill to watch a special, “Girls Night Out” showing of 16 Candles.

Crabs Galore and Rain for Days

Crabs Galore and Rain for Days

Hi friends!

How was your weekend?  Ours went by way too fast as usual even though we didn’t really do all that much.  The next few weekends we are home getting things done around the house.  I feel like I’m starting to nest as I’m planning the nursery, cleaning things out and begging The Hubby to get the patio done.  Unfortunately the rain has put a dent in our backyard landscaping plans.  We managed to get the grass and most the plants in then the rain came.  AND it won’t be stopping anytime soon 🙁

Disneyland Day 3

Disneyland Day 3

Good morning!

Are you sick of Disney posts?  This is the last one.  I promise 🙂

We started our third day at Disneyland bright and early for Character Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe.  We purchased our trip through Costco (which I highly recommend) so it came with the character dining and a $40 gift card to Disney.  We also saved a few hundred Dollars by booking through them.  Anyway, we made our way down to the restaurant which was in The Grand California and were greeted by a large friendly bear.
