2 Years.

Thursday, July 28, 2011
For 2 years, we have been parents to this sweet, adorable, and persistent child. As I sit here and look at a photo of all three of us from his 2nd day of life, I can't help but think of where the time has gone already, but am more than excited for what the future holds for our future family of four.

That is all for words for now. Enjoy the photos.

2 more days until 2.

Monday, July 25, 2011
So amazing how much change takes place in just two short years. Why is turning 2 so much harder on this mommy than turning 1 was?

2 days left. We ought to start doing some birthday present shopping.

28 Weeks!

Nearing the end of the 20's. Holy cow. Our daughter will be here before we know it! I'm pretty uncomfortable, don't sleep, my legs hurt all the time, and I'm starting to waddle slightly because she must be getting lower (and bigger, obviously) and I'm starting to hurt. I pretty much don't sleep, I'm hungry all the time and she kicks around like crazy, and as it seems lately, mostly at night when I'm not sleeping.

Claire is likely approaching close to 3 pounds and is gearing up to be about the size of a squash. I can tell. Especially when moving around.

Her room is getting its likely final touches tonight and then hopefully I'll share a picture of it. I kept it pretty simple.

As far as being prepared otherwise, we are set on basic onesies and pants for the first few months, have a number of sweaters that will fit her well after Christmas (love clearance deals!) and I've picked up a few cute hats and obviously you've seen the headbands I've been making. We have two sleepers (so we'll need to get lots more of those--Henry had plenty but they all had cars and trucks and stuff on them...Claire isn't wearing those--just like there's no way if Claire was here first would Ryan have let me put his baby boy Henry in pink polka dot sleepers ;) ) and we don't have any socks. That, and we are still in the market for a tandem stroller. I've been looking at Once Upon a Child for them (I'm fine with buying used, but we have certain things in mind that we want and we haven't come across it just yet). Otherwise, I think we have most things we need (everything needs to come up sometime in September and get a good wash down--pack and play, swing, bouncy seat, car seat, etc.), but that will come later. I also want a few pink receiving blankets and burp cloths (just so I'm not always carrying around bright blue ones in public).

I can keep eating this.




And while google image searching for the above, I came across this image:






How is it possible I haven't found/seen these yet?


Obviously my relief in NOT having gestational diabetes lies more within knowing I won't put Claire at risk or put myself at risk for later diabetes (or have to poke myself every day). But for a girl who loves her ice cream, the fact that I can continue to eat it is good news as well.

Eden Prairie Air Expo!

Saturday, July 16, 2011
What could be more entertaining to a kid who loves airplanes than an airplane show? We knew we had to take him. We went early to beat the heat, but because of the clouds and slight misty rain, there weren't many planes up in the air. As soon as the humidity kicked in, it was too hot for a toddler and pregnant mama, so we left around 12ish, right when most of the planes were getting up in the air. We saw plenty though, and definitely saw many on the ground.

What goes in the airplane, must come out of the airplane. Less than thrilled.

And getting out of here was less of an issue since the nice fireman helped us out.
