A Bit of Randomness...

* My sweet 4 year old says to me yesterday as I heave myself off the couch: "Mommy, you're getting fat, but it's just because of the baby", WOW thank you sweetheart, I really appreciate that! Immediately there after I go on to explain why we NEVER say people are getting fat, especially to your mommy.... who does this girl think she is? (Although she is sort of right...)

* Why is planning a 5 year old's party so stressful and EXPENSIVE??!! Good lord she's turning 5, why are we contemplating spending upwards of $400 on a party plus a dinner the night before for family?? Ok, change of plans, scale down a little, only invite her friends and grandparents, go to a place that's not quite as expensive and she'll still have a BLAST! And, no dinner the night before for family... there comes a time when extended family just doesn't need to be invited and it's just about Hannah and her friends... right? Right?

*Speaking of her birthday we already got her gift and it's out in the backyard already being enjoyed- the trampoline is back, my friends, and Hannah couldn't be more excited! We got HOA approval before buying it this time so they aren't going to make us get rid of it! We bought it for her a month early becuase of previous bullet point of her party costing a small fortune... no it's not the $60,000 party like on RHOBH but still over $400 for party is still a lot in my book!

* I have a problem- all I want to do is shop, seriously I want to buy something all. of. the. time! I want to shop for Hannah. Shop for the baby. Shop for clothes, even though I'm only going to be this size for another 4 months...

*Speaking of, in just over 4 months we will have a brand spanking new bambino to bring home! Ahhhh I'm so excited to hold and kiss this little dude that has been a-wigglin' and a-groovin' inside my tummy!
21 weeks and there is no hiding it now (not that I was hiding it) but I'm COMPLETELY showing now and I LOVE it! And getting fat?? Yup, pretty much true, total weight gain so far? 15 lbs!! Yikes!!! And I still have about 19 weeks to go...

*Why did I just start crying out of no where today?? Literally tears streaming down my face for no reason whats-o-ever! Yes, I must be pregnant. The first part of my pregnancy I was not very emotional but these last 2 weeks, I'll cry at ANYTHING!

* I just decided today that Hannah and I are going to make the long drive to Idaho with my parents to visit my Grandma for her 80th birthday. We haven't seen her for 4 years, so Hannah was only 1 year old the last time she saw her. Plus, my parents aren't going to tell her that Hannah and I are coming so it's going to be a great surprise... this is not going to go well for my whole emotional thing I got goin on these days!

19 & 20 weeks and still a boy :)

19 weeks! 20 weeks and Hannah wanted to be in the picture even though it doesn't look that way! haha

Blurry but Hannah looks cute and is actually smiling in this one!

Not much has changed the last 2 weeks, just getting fatter! :) We had our 20 week ultrasound on Friday and the tech said as far as she could tell us everything looked healthy. Baby is still a boy, so I think I can finally believe it now! :) And he was moving SO much it was crazy, the tech said it was going to take awhile to do all the measurements cause he was such a moving target! At one point he was folded in half with his feet touching his forehead and his hand was batting at his feet- it was so cute! My mom and I went to Babies-R-Us yesterday to work on the reigstry and I'm so excited to get all the baby's stuff together and ready for his arrival! We are at the half way point now so we are hoping the last half of pregnancy is a little less stressful and more enjoyable!

On a fun note- Nick sort of felt the baby for the first time on Friday! The kick felt HUGE to me but Nick said he thinks he felt a little something. It'll be fun when he can feel bigger movements and know for sure it's from baby!


Hannah had the BEST first day of kindergarten! There were no tears (for anyone) and she walked right in like she had been going for years! She had so much fun and was so excited to go back the next day. But before she could start school she had to get her mani-pedi to be fully prepared for the big event!

I'm a Kindergartener!!!

Walking up to the school...

Met up with her neighbor friend, Keilah, who is in the AM class.

Waiting in line to head into class.

Putting her back pain away.

She found a seat, got straight to coloring, and didn't even look twice as we left!

We are so proud of our big kindergertener for doing such a great job on her first day!
