Long time no see!

Been a while, yeah?

Well, I'm hugely pregnant now. I'm pretty sure the last time I blogged I had just found out I was pregnant and expressed how shocking it was that it was so easy to conceive this time. It's been a long time since then and I am now 19 weeks and 2 days along.

We know what we are having and we know HER name! Say hello to Evelyn Elise!

I secretly and selfishly longed for a second girl even though this is our last baby and Ryan wanted a boy. She's truly a little miracle though. We love her so much.

Abby is so so big now. She is walking all over like a champ for the most part! She jabbers all day long and she is so smart. Here she is announcing what we are having! She's so stinking cute! (I know, I'm tooting my own horn.)

Here's a belly shot comparison for the fun of it ;)

We are getting pretty serious about the cloth diaper stash, as well. We have ordered 10 NB diapers and 12 OS pockets. We got a Bumgenius elemental the other day and plan to get 3 BG pockets as soon as I make the money from the diapers I sold tomorrow! I'm pretty excited in case you can't tell.

More news, Ryan made 1st class! Come December our money cares will be a distant memory and it couldn't have come at a better time! On a sad note, because we bought this house, Ryan is going to have to re enlist in October. On the plus side, the bonus is pretty hefty right now so it will help us get out of debt. I would still rather be poor than to watch my husband leave a million times for underways and a couple deployments. I can't stand the thought of our girls having to witness that and grow up missing daddy, either.

Well, that's life in a nutshell right now. I hope everyone is doing well! Thanks for continuing to read even though I've been a slacker :)


9 weeks

Ok so I wasn't really showing when I was 7 weeks haha. I was so crazy bloated that it sure did look like it though!! This pregnancy has been kicking my butt for sure. I'm so tired and hungry and sick it sucks! And I have to force myself to eat because in still nursing Abby who, by the way, is about to turn one and I cannot believe it!!!!! 

We went to see the USO Sesame Street show yesterday. It was really cute and Abby enjoyed it!

Not much is new. We are going to Indiana at the end of the month for Abby's birthday/party/to visit and were really excited about it!

Here's some recent pics!


7 weeks 2 days

I feel like you can officially say I am showing. I can't hide this to save my life! I have my first appointment (blood work and paper work) the 28th. I will be 8 weeks on the dot then. Over the phone they said I would only have to wait a week or two after that for my first ultrasound and I hope that's true because I'm dying to see this baby and hear the heartbeat!


When you only try once

You have a really hard time believing it.
Abriella Jane is going to be an amazing big sister <3


Is it too much?

I'm thinking that blogging every 3ish days may be more than I should. That last post was just plain awful. If it didn't go against what I believe in, I would delete it but that feels like deleting a part of my life and I just don't do that. I won't censor myself just because the post was dull and negative.

I have, however, decided that since I end up posting junk like that if i post too often, I am going to limit myself to posting once a week unless something awesome or important comes up!

For now, I am going to sit here, smell the roses (and other flowers in the surprise bouquet Ryan brought home <3 a="" abby="" all.="" and="" call="" coffee.="" drink="" duty="" her="" i="" m="" mom="" my="" now="" of="" p="" play="" plays="" real="" ryan="" toys="" watch="" while="" with="" y="">


Stuck in a rut

I'm caught. In that space between being busy with Abby and having nothing to do. Where for a period of the day I have nothing to do but not enough time to do nothing. I'm bored. I'm REALLY bored. So bored that the thought of cleaning excites me but I don't want to do it, lol.

Of course as soon as I started typing up this blog. Abby started fussing. But. again, she's fine now and I'm bored. I'm bored of tv, hulu, netflix, facebook, twitter, instagram and I'm also kind of bored as I write this boring blog post. I'm just bored.

I used to be able to do things with people outside of the house when I felt like I needed to do something but now I don't really have anyone I can just call and say "Hey! Let's hang out!" and it will happen. Not to mention, Ryan is on nights right now and everyone else has a husband on days so it wouldn't work out anyway.

Abby is on the floor playing with her toys and learning new things and maybe I should join her. Sometimes it's nice to have my "free time" but when my free time isn't any fun, who cares about it?

Sorry for rambling! I'm off to play with my baby. She looks like she's having a blast.
