"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014"

A momentous occasion, the child who doesn't like baths (we usually give him showers), takes one, and likes it!

23 Weeks

Wednesday, January 21, 2015


-How far along are you: 23 Weeks, 6 days

-Baby is: roughly 11 inches long and weight just over a pound, about the size of a mango

-Movement: she's starting to move a lot more lately. the movements are still pretty soft but it's been fun to have Dan and even Eli catch a few here and there! All the movements are pretty low on my belly for the moment too.

-Maternity clothes?: Oh man I think I'm already out-growing maternity clothes that I wore when I was pregnant with Eli. Ya know, the one's that lasted the entire time last go around *face palm*

-Belly button in or out?: In. It sometimes gives my baby bump a funny flat front that makes me laugh.


-Stretch marks: None. *yet* Fingers crossed. When I was pregnant with Eli I never got them, and then after he was born I got a few. So weird! (Easily got rid of them with Bio Oil btw, it works miracles!)

-Sleep: I've been so dang tired lately. I'm either falling asleep at 8pm like a grandma, or total insomniac up at 2am eating cheerios and watching the bachelor. Yes, both of these things happened this week.

-Favorite moment of the week: Going to our ultrasound and seeing baby girl! Also this week Dan got to come to our midwife appointment and hear baby girl's heartbeat for the first time. So special!

-Feeling: a bit strained from workouts this week, so I'm taking it easy and laying down when I can.

-Working on: eyeing alllll the baby girls clothes! It's a whole new world from baby boy stuff and it's been super fun to browse. I mean look at this, or this, or this!

-Anticipating: the dreaded glucose test

-Currently craving: I this week carrot cake was a big winner on the cravings chart. I am happy to say though that I wanted to eat a lot of fresh veggies and fruit this week which has been so nice! That's my usual diet, but with how sick I've been I just haven't wanted them. So I'm taking that as a good sign!

-Wishing: I could lock away every little moment I have just Eli and I right now. Such sweet moments and good times! I am honored to be his mama and honored to get to bring another sweet little soul down to earth.

"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014"

Eli: gave me the cheesiest grins when I took his photo this day, which is so funny because usually he a) ignores me b) runs away c) wants to see the back of camera

I debated doing the 52 project again this year, because two years in a row things have come up and I've failed to do all 52 weeks. But the thing is, the weeks I did capture, I LOVE seeing those photos. So I'm back to it, hopefully ready to catch all 52 weeks this year. Plus super excited baby sister will join the project come May. Hurray!

It's a Girl!

Well we sure had to wait long enough for this one, but seeing our sweet baby girl on that ultrasound was worth the wait! We are just over the moon about her. I'll share more about her soon, I'm just too excited to get the news out :)

Boy or Girl?

Tuesday, January 13, 2015


The time for our long awaited ultrasound is finally here! So what do you think? Boy or girl? Any guesses?! We have our guess, but I don't tend to put a lot of stock in my mother intuition because I totally thought Eli was going to be a girl haha.
