17 weeks

I thought I would give a little update on my pregnancy:)


  • I am 17 weeks today
  • My bump is barely there:) 
  • I did not show very fast with Laney, but I did expect to show quicker with this little bugger
  • I really really love salt and vinegar chips!! I pretty much want salty, sour, spicy foods all the time
  • I have gained 5 lbs since my first appointment. I look like I have gained more than that but the scale keeps staying the same!
  • I call it a boy just because its easier than calling it an "IT". I really don't care what we have:) I am just excited to have another baby!
  • I cant feel any movements yet. With Laney I didn't feel her move until after 20 weeks. The Dr. said it could be the placement of the placenta. 


BAH! she is just so stinking cute!!! I LOVE HER!!!

Have a lovely Wednesday night!

Fall Baby!!

FINALLY!!! I have been trying to write this post for like two weeks now! For some reason when I use the laptop it goes super slow and I just haven't had the patience for it!

About two weeks ago we went to the pumpkin patch. It was pretty chilly but we had a great time!



The corn maze was super cute, but their was a school there too so all these little kids were squirming by us, apparently we were too slow!
Me and my girl! It was CRAZY windy so my hair is all over the place, and I thought we were doing tongues s in the second picture hah
 Laney and her papa:) 

This is Laneys pumpkin I thought it looked so perfect still on its vine and the sun was shining right on it. It was so beautiful seeing the bright orange pumpkins in the fields. 



We came home and Laney painted he pumpkin and I carved the big one we got:)




Those concentrating lips....I do them too







See those concentrating lips...not my best look :)



Seriously that pumpkin was so thick!! Carving pumpkins will defiantly be a mommy thing. Caleb did not love the gooey stuff. Carving pumpkins was a huge deal when I was a kid so I have no problem with it being a mommy thing!!!! I roasted the seeds and ate all of them to myself!! I really want more, I might just carve another one for the seeds! Caleb did eat one seed and he liked it he just didn't want anymore
 Our finished pumpkin! He was a pain in the butt to carve but I was determined!!

I need to add pictures of my Halloween decor I made this year. I am so excited to Trick or Treat with Laney she is so excited! We practice everyday:)


Have a spooky Tuesday night!!!

Monday randoms


It has been a week since we started potty training and she is doing so well! No accidents, no fuss to go potty AND she tells me when she has to go!! It is so damn sweet:) She wears undies all the time, but wears a diaper to nap and night time. She was dry at nap time today! PROGRESS!!! So far I am the only one who has taken her potty only because Caleb worked a lot last week and I am with her all the time. I hope its not another transition for her to let someone else take her. I guess we will see! I am so incredibly proud of her:)


I made chili tonight for dinner, it was amazing besides the fact that I ate a whole bag of salt and vinegar chips to myself at lunch time so my mouth is in pain.....oooppps. I don't know if many people do this but I add cinnamon to all of my soups. It is freaking delicious. I don't add a lot its just a hint but it makes a huge difference. 


Silly phone pictures from this week



 Leaning on my pillow as I get it ready to be covered:)



Making cupcakes with Juju:)

 I just thought this picture was hilarious!



 I told Laney she was a beauty today and she was cracking up saying "im not a booty!!"
 Rice play:) I buried toys and she got to dig for treasure!


 pretending to sleep in carpool line! She thought it was so fuu that the seat could recline

Caleb got a hair cut today
BEFORE

 AFTER

Can you say YUM?? I love his hair short! This is the first time it has ever been that short since we have been together. He was nervous it would make him look younger but I looooove it!



Have a special Monday Night!

Its started....


We have started POTTY TRAINING!! We started on Monday and it has gone pretty well.


 We got this chart a while ago from a coloring book about potty training and she LOVES it! We were home all day today which is why she went on the potty every time. Girl has some serious bladder control she holds it until the very last moment. I take her diaper off right when she wakes up and she wont pee until noon or one!!! I don't ask her if she has to go until I can tell she needs to then I suggest we go to the bathroom and she leads the way! I am so proud of her. We started off with her little portable potty but she really didn't like it at all. When I got out the little seat for the toilet she was totally comfortable sitting up there! I was very surprised. We had two accidents today, one was just a teensy bit and the other she straight up peed on the floor ha! It was past bedtime so I think that is why. 

AND Laney has a freshly painted bathroom to start using!!!!
 


This is the bathroom before. I hated the color! That border is awful!!! They painted everything that mint color, the towel bar, the baseboards even the vent in the ceiling. It was quite silly. 

AFTER!!
 I loooove the purple it is so fun and vibrant. I love color but in my opinion the only acceptable room to paint bright purple is the bathroom:) I am so so so glad we did! We do have a shower curtain but I am washing it and am too lazy to go grab it out of the dryer....Caleb painted the whole bathroom, baseboards, towel bar, vanity, and the mirror:)


 That mirror is my favorite! It was gold and the vanity was dark brown (blech) and we lightened it up and made it all white:) We really want a new vanity and sink but it is not a main priority right now.



The lights under the vanity are my favorite part:) I use the bathroom A LOT at night and I hate turning on the light so my sweet husband installed lights under the sink so:)


Have a wonderful Wednesday night!
