Time is just...

moving rapidly and it just keeps going and going. Like yesterday was Halloween and then Thanksgiving and tomorrow it will be Christmas. I have started my Christmas shopping and am pretty much done for Mr. Cain.  I say that and then every time I'm in the store I see something I just know he would looove and have to grab it. I just have a few things for other people and I will be done.

We went and picked out a Christmas tree today. It was covered in snow so we put it in the garage tonight in hopes that it would be clear off and we can bring it in the house tomorrow to decorate it! Cain was pretty excited about it. Also he loves the snow! We got our first real snow last night and it was a whopping 5 inches :( He wanted Chris to pull him in the sled all night, it was so cute.

We went and had our first visit with the OB yesterday. I had an ultrasound already but this was the first visit. I really like our doctor. When I was pregnant with Cain I had a midwife whom I loved but because of my emergency c-section I am seeing the doctor this time. I still don't really feel pregnant yet, mostly because last time I was so sick and this time nothing. I am however already popping out in places that didn't pop until way later in my pregnancy with Cain. I keep saying that by the end of this 9 months I may weigh like 500 pounds. All these damn holiday candy, meals, treats are working against me. The people in my office already brought in Christmas cookies and it's not even December - totally not helping! Next week I will post my "stats" and picture because I will be 12 weeks already. The end of the first trimester almost completed.

So other then holiday stuff and pregnancy stuff there's not to much going on. Trying to be as stress free as possible. Trying to hang out with Cain as much as possible, who by the way, speaks in full sentences and cracks me up all day long! Oh the stuff he says. I will have to start keeping track of some of the stuff on here so I don't forget.

Wow - It's been awhile...

I haven't updated in awhile. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. My sister and her family was here from out of state for the week so we have been busy. It was great having her here and seeing our kids play together. We had tons of family things going on over the last week.I  ate like it was my job. I should have busted out the maternity pants early! Besides eating we did some shopping, lots of traveling between families houses, and relaxing. I have lots of pictures that I want to share at some point but here are a few for now.

Just watching...

Wonder Pets with Dad ...

although I am pretty sure Dad is sleeping.

And something that recently started happening and I have no idea why!?!

 This is Cain sleeping in yes IN his pillowcase. He curls up and tucks himself in there and I have no idea why 
he does this but we find him like this in the mornings when we go in there. It cracks me up! 
He wouldn't let me take his picture this morning so this was the best I could get.

First Snow...


Here is Cain looking out the window today at the first snow of the year.  
It's exciting to see him get excited but other then that I am not happy. I hate winter!

8 weeks


Well here we are at 8 weeks. We had our first doctors appointment yesterday. We got to hear the heart beat and they even did an ultrasound! I know that I didn't get an ultrasound that early with Cain, but it's always fun to see what's going on (even if there isn't much going on). I remember following Kelly and thought this would be fun to start also. 

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 8 Weeks
Size of baby: the size of a kidney bean
Maternity Clothes: None needed yet
Gender: We don't know
Movement: Not feeling any yet
Sleep: I'm still sleeping ok, the waking up in the middle of the night has already started
What I miss: Nothing yet, I don't feel any different
Cravings: No cravings but I am hungry all the time
Symptoms: Super tired, little twings from muscles being stretched, 
Best moment this week: Our ultrasound!

And just for fun here is a picture of me at 8 weeks when I was pregnant with Cain...

Little Bird never sleeps...

anywhere except in his bed or in the car. It's been like this forever. If he is sleeping in the car and we get home he immediately wakes up. Except the other day. We got home and I got him out of the van and he just laid his head on my shoulder and kept sleeping. It was the sweetest thing ever. We came into the house and I laid him on the floor, covered him up, and just stared at how darn cute he is. We cooked dinner and he slept right through it.

Last weekend I hosted...

a bridal shower for my friend Stacy. Everything went really well. The time is flying by and before you know it the wedding will be here.
My Mother-in-law and sister-in-law made this super cute cake (and it was delicious)!

New W/ Cain...

well Cain is just a little over 2 years old now and he is doing some of the funniest things ever. I just wanted to write them down so I could look back and remember.

- He no longer feels the need to nap. It is hit or miss. Either way he lays down for at least an hour in bed. Sometimes he will fall asleep but most days now he just lays in there and talks to himself, sings, and rolls around. I go in there after the hour and he smiles and says all done sleeping mommy.

- He is using the potty still really well with few accidents. And he has now figured out that if he says he has to poop, right before nap time or bed time, then he gets to sit in the bathroom and not have to go to bed. So every single day before nap/bed time he tells us that he has to poop and wants to sit in the bathroom f.o.r.e.v.e.r. and not do anything. It's getting old buddy, really old.

- He uses ummmm before he answers anything. "Do you want a banana?" "ummmm yes" "Do you want to change your shirt?" "ummmm no" "Do you want to take a shower?" "ummmm sure" I wonder where he gets that from!

- This kid eats like crazy and he is still a tall string bean.

- We've been talking about what we are going to do with a baby. I ask him to show me how he is going to be gentle with the baby and he rubs my arm lightly and then says "hit the baby" and tries to hit me. No sir we won't hit the baby. He also tells me he is going to play little legos with the baby and feed the baby a bottle of milk.

- Chris had a dentist appt. today for a regular cleaning and we took Cain to the office so he could see it and see the dentist's chair, etc. sense his 1st dentist appt. will be coming up soon. He acted really nervous about going into the building and asked us if he could go back to the van. But once he got in there he did so great. The people at Dr. Carter's office are amazing. He didn't freak out at all when they started cleaning Chris' teeth and he just acted like it happens everyday. They gave him his own new toothbrush that lights up and let him pick something from the prize box (he choose sunglasses). He said he had fun at the dentist. We shall see when it is actually his turn.

I haven't cried...

this much in a long time. It's hormones I'm sure - but today was a rough one for me. I have some personal things going on and I feel depressed. I'm going to let myself pout about it for the rest of the day and then let tomorrow be a new day - one hopefully with no tears.
