A Day in the Life | Friday in March

What a month! Our household has been plagued by sickness….first, a terrible cold and now a stomach virus. Ugh!  Luckily, I was able to capture my day in the life project on a day that me and my girl were feeling good (in between cold and virus), but I haven’t been able to get my photos ready and posted until now.   Hoping the rest of this month brings health and sunshine!

Ultrasound Day | Halfway There

3bS

Today was our ultrasound for Baby #2 and Big Sister, Jos, got to tag along.  Of course, Dora, just had to come too.

Notice Joslyn’s hand in the bottom right corner and Dora was “sleeping” beside me the whole time. ;) Jos was using a tissue as a blankie for Dora and my arm as a pillow.  She smiled a couple of times at the baby but was more interested in playing with her doll.  She also enjoyed sitting on the bed with Momma at the end and getting a ride down when they lowered the bed.  Jos did say she thought the baby was a girl but we still don’t know….we turned our heads for that part.  Baby #2 was moving around and upside down this morning and measuring 19 weeks 2 days which would move our due date up to August 26th…we’ll see!  Can’t wait to meet the little munchkin!

TOEtally Fun!

 

1-0bS

Jos and I had a mini “spa day” and soaked our toes in warm lemon water, painted our toenails, put on some lemon cuticle cream, and then slathered coconut lotion on our feet!  Jos thought this was pretty special and fun!  She loved the warm foot soak sooo much that she TOEtally hogged all the water, making little room for Momma. ;)

Love these little wiggly toes!

A Day in the Life | Sunday in March

Time to start another year-long project with the amazing and talented gals from the Foto Fifty group.  Although I didn’t fully complete last year’s project(almost), it was a wonderful journey with these encouraging women and I am so thankful to be a part of this little community.  We will each be documenting one day a month, from start to finish, through photographs.  It’s an opportunity to appreciate the day-to-day lives we all lead and to find the beautiful and happy moments that are always present.

Let the Holiday Season Begin…

0a1S

How is it December already?  It is certainly here and even though we are still living out of boxes (hopefully in our new place very soon), we did manage to pull out just a few Christmas items to make it feel more official.  Not to mention, we have seen Santa 3 times already AND our little Miss Jos has gone right up to him each time without hesitation!  Have I mentioned she also made her mind up just before Thanksgiving that she wants “one owl please” for Christmas? And yes, she told Santa that. Of course, Santa told her he would get her an owl so…

She was SO proud of herself!

Over Thanksgiving, we took a ride on the Santa Train with Ken & Mary Lou, Joslyn’s Nanny & Grampi.  It was a nice time and the best part was Jos saying to me “Baby’s first ride on a train ever.”…she was very excited and had such a fun time!  I’m really enjoying hearing and understanding all of the thoughts in her head these days and am constantly amazed that such a little person thinks about the things she does.

Before the train ride we had a snack at a local bakery and Jos got a big…

We had a nice Thanksgiving and enjoyed the company of family and friends.  Thanks so much to the Egger family for hosting all of us! I contributed this to our 2nd turkey dinner the next day.  It looked pretty but I think I prefer a good ole’ jello pretzel salad.

A little photo shoot with Nanny before leaving for our train ride.

In addition to our countdown calendar, we have a new visitor in our house this month.  Introducing Hart (a name from the book I read before asking Jos a name which put the idea in her head…rookie, but it’s cute)… Hart has been really fun for Joslyn.  She loves waking up and finding out what Hart has been up to during the night.  I haven’t gotten too elaborate with this although I may occasionally if I feel up to it.  So far, she wrote HoHoHo on the paper towel roll, decorated a tiny Christmas tree, made some bacon and eggs in Joslyn’s play kitchen, Took a “cotton ball bath”, had a snowball (cotton balls again) fight with some bath squirties, and rode Joslyn’s ladybug leaving a snowy trail along the way.  We are definitely not using the “no touch” rule that apparently comes with the elf.  I told Jos that I emailed Santa and he told us that once we had named our elf and she was a part of our family that we could touch her. :)

She also occasionally leaves a note and mentions something nice she has seen Joslyn do.

Our countdown calendar is back and we have been enjoying lots of fun activities.  A couple of nights ago Jos had a “Christmas Bath” with some colored ice cubes.

We also made Christmas ornaments one day.  I really enjoy doing this with my girl and I am so glad we found our countdown calendar in storage to motivate me to get this going.  It’s such a fun thing to share with Jos.

It’s still amazing to me how one second I can be feeling overwhelmed with parenthood and the next all I have to do is look at this face and my heart feels like it will explode.

Happy Holidays to you all!
