Who knew having kids could change everything? I started this blog to keep my family and friends up to date on all the adventures and mishaps of being a mom.

The blob

So I knew going into this pregnancy that you start to show earlier with subsequent kiddos. I have heard that it is like a balloon that has already been blown up so I just is easier to stretch, that your body just knows what it is doing this time, and that my lovely first child ruined my ab muscles making them all lose so they stretch faster…. Whatever the reason… it was true. With this kid I was in maternity jeans by 10 weeks. I was using a belly band by 8 weeks and was tired of trying to jimmy-rig my jeans with a rubber band.

My only wish… that if my body knows what it is doing so much… that my morning sickness would finally go away. I thought being sick with Emersyn was bad but throwing up all the time while watching a toddler is taking it to a whole new level. I was sick for 16 weeks with E and I had hoped that maybe I would get away with only 14 weeks with this once since my body knew it this time. I have given up that thought and now just pray every day that it only lasts 16 weeks and not longer. L

I am super annoyed and if you have answers please respond. My blog has an error at the bottom of the page when I try to post- however if I click on it- it just goes away. I have option to add a picture and my tool bar at the top of the post is completely blank. Help!

Breaking News

For friends not on Facebook or those that just like to hear a little bit more about me :-)

Emersyn is going to be a big sister at the end of January! We knew that we wanted to try to get pregnant as soon as possible after we got married. I just honestly didn't think it would happen 5 days after the wedding (I kept a chart so I know it was this soon) but..... none the less... we are having a baby!

Emersyn loves her new big sister shirt.

I am filled with emotions. One- the thought of two scares me a little. Two- I worry about not having as much time with my little princess. Three- I am estatic that I creating a new life again. Four- It may sound weird but I felt a little guilty when we first found out. Why am I able to get pregnant so easily when others struggles. Five- Determined and excited for this new edition to our family.

To answer all the questions- Yes I feel sick. Yes being pregnant with a toddler is harder than being pregnant with no kids. Yes we are finding out the sex but won't know until early Sept.

Emersyn knows and seems excited. If you ask her where Mommy's baby is, she will point to my tummy and if you ask her if it is a boy or girl... she is pretty sure it's a boy. Only time will tell what the gender is AND how she handles it. I hope my little nuggets will be life long best friends!

How she really feels about the whole big sister thing sometimes :-)

Cheerio bush

This is a real conversation with my husband this morning. Sometimes I think he just doesn’t understand me J

Me: Good morning! Time to wake up.

Him: (muffled grumbling)

Me: So I was eating Cheerios this morning and I started to sneeze and I inhaled an entire Cheerio. I really hope it went down my throat and not into my lungs.

Him: It can’t go down your lungs.

Me: Yes it can. Didn’t you hear about the guy that was eating peas and a pea when into his lung and grew a pea bush. I hope I don’t grown a Cheerio bush in my lung.

Him: Where did you even hear that?

Me: The guy was on a talk show. Like Oprah or Ellen or something.

Him: Your lungs are not an open balloon. They are like a sponge.

Me: The perfect growing grounds for a Cheerio bush.

Him: You can’t grow a Cheerio bush.

Me: You better hope so or you will be a single father. I am pretty sure that someone can’t survive a Cheerio bush in their lungs.

Him: Go Away!
