The blog turns 2!!


Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear bloggy. Happy birthday to you!
 
 
I remember writing my first blog post like it was... two years ago, Cody and I had a whole two months of marriage under our belt when we decided to start trying for a baby. Best decision ever. I am so so so thankful that I have these words to look back on and relive. This blog has been an outlet for couped up creative energy, a way to share with family near and far, and hopefully words my babies will read someday and cherish.
 
The blog has also become a sort of baby book and photo album, after Reagan was born I had all my pregnancy posts printed into a book. I used the website Blurb, it turned out so beautiful! My heart explodes everytime I open it and read my weekly updates. I plan on printing a book every year after Reagan's birthday, they will be such a special keepsake.
 
So thank you blog for saving my memories and thoughts for many years to come, and Happy Birthday.

Nursery Inspiration & Ideas

Does nesting set in earlier with the second pregnancy? Or maybe I'm just being my normal crazy compulsive planning self by brainstorming nursery ideas?! Probably the latter. Speaking of brainstorming, baby brain has taken over in full force.
 
What was I talking about...?
 
Oh yeah, Nursery Ideas...I have already started my official Pinterest board with ideas and inspiration, check it out HERE. I need to reign in my baby riff-raff on Pinterest, I have 3 or 4 boards with baby crap spread out all over.
 
But back to the topic::
 
Here are my thoughts thus far.
 
 


 
I feel like things will be so much easier this time around, for one, we have most of the baby paraphernalia that we need. This time I get to just focus on the fun decorating part.
 
That's all for now, lets see how long these color schemes last.

REWIND....7 Weeks

I had my first ultrasound yesterday, the first look at baby. I was excited to see the babe but more anxious to see how big the babe is...if you remember with my First Ultrasound with Reagan, I was a week or so behind where I thought I was. Well THIS time, I'm two weeks behind where I thought I was...I was disappointed at first, but have to focus on the positive. The baby is growing healthy and all looks good in the hood.

Best moment this week: First Ultrasound, Seeing that tiny little nugget
Miss Anything: Coffee. and Wine.
Movement: Not Yet!
Food Cravings: Sweets, Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate.
Anything making you queasy or sick: After I eat anything I get nauseous for 15-20 minutes
Gender: ???
Labor Signs: No 
Symptoms: Headaches, hungry every 2 hours, nauseous, sleepy

Eleven Months





Reagan Grace,

My little butter bean. I just can't believe your big personality, you're growing up to be such a sweet little girl. Although you hardly sit still for a moment, you still aren't walking. I thought for sure you would be by now, you are close, but still prefer to hold on to us or something to stabilize yourself.

You are still an amazing eater, gobble up almost anything. I am just now starting to ween you on to cow's milk, so far you're not quite sure what to think. Blueberry Eggo waffles are a breakfast staple around here, and still loving your vanilla yogurt.

You love to play by yourself, so happy and content to just roam around the house finding things to get into.

Your sleeping habits have been on the downfall however. It may be because of teething, I'm just not sure. Speaking of which, you have 3 official teeth. The front top two and on on the bottom, I can see the side two on the top trying to make their way down.

We are very excited for your birthday party, I try and get a little bit done every day so I'm not too overwhelmed when it's party time.

This is also the month we found out you're going to be a big sister!! You are going to be a great big sister! I just know it!

My sweet sweet baby, I can't believe next month I will have a ONE year old. Gahhh it seem so surreal. But for now, I'm going to hold on to every last second I have with you as an infant.

XOXO,

Mommy

Reagan's Stats:
Weight: 19lbs 6oz
Height: 27 1/2 inches
Clothes Size:12 Month

What's Trending?!

Reagan, us crazies here in 2013 use the term "trending" instead of popular, or cool, or hip, or...you get the point. I thought it would be fun to share things that are popular now so you can look back and say haha you losers.
First up:: Historical Native American Housing.

TeePees. They are all the craze for little babes. And they come with a mighty pricetag at the stores. So, along with the other crafty DIY mom's I decided to make one for you!

I hope you enjoy your teepee for years to come.

Love you.

Weekend Recap

We had ourselves a pretty nice little weekend! 
 
Friday night, after having a long week with a sick baby I took it upon myself to go to bed early. And it was amazing. Reagan went down at 6:30, so I climbed into bed at 7:30 and slept about 13 much needed hours!
 
Saturday, Cody headed off to work at Mom and Shawn's property. Reagan and I hung out and got a family dinner prepped. About 6pm, Cody, Mom and Shawn came over for dinner and dominoes. We had such a great time! Reagan tried Sushi for the first time, nothing raw just a yummy cucumber roll. She liked the rice and cream cheese the best!!

 
 

 
 
 
Sunday, Cody again headed off to work on the property and about 1pm Reagan and I headed over to roast winnies on the bon fire.
 
 
We had so much fun hanging out and even went for a stroll through the neighborhood.
We were all so happy for the nice weather, and looking forward to this week with Sunshine in the forecast.
