Lily and Santa

Today we took Lily to see Santa. She was so excited this morning when we told her where we were going. She couldn't wait to sit in his lap and talk to him. She told him how old she was and then talked about all the decorations she saw around her. After they took pictures she led Santa around by the hand and looked at all the decorations. She had a fun morning!

22 Weeks Maternity Photos

Here are my 22 week pictures. You will notice in some of my shots where you can see my right hand, that it looks a little strange and for those of you that do not know already that is because I got a pretty nasty 2nd degree burn on it about 3 1/2 weeks ago. It looks alot better than it did a few weeks ago, but still isn't pretty to look at. Doctor said that it will most likely leave a scar and I believe it.

22 weeks!

Today I am 22 weeks and I had my Dr.'s appt this morning and everything is looking good with baby. Her heartrate was a strong 156. My blood pressure was 110/60. My weight well let's not talk about that. With Lily my goal was to gain between 25 and 30 lbs and I gained 26lbs. My goal is the same this time, but well I'm not sure if I will make it or not. Of course they reassured me that around week 20 - 22 the baby is in a big growth spurt so it is completely normal to gain more weight during this time, and of course I went through it during the holidays. But I tried to do good and to keep up w/ my exercising. They said it would even out in the upcoming weeks. We will see. My next appt is on January 6th. We took my 22 week pictures last night, but we haven't had a chance to upload them yet. As soon as I get a chance I will post them.

On another fun note Jim was able to feel Emma kick for the first time yesterday!!!! She is definitely getting bigger and stronger!

Myrtle Beach, SC

We spent the week after the Thanksgiving with my parents in Myrtle Beach, SC. We had a wonderful time relaxing and spending time w/ them. The Oceanfront Villas at the Grand Dunes Marriott were great. I loved the resort. They had a fun Activity room for children and had several things planned for them each day. Lily had a great time. Mom and Dad watched Lily a couple of evenings so that Jim and I could go out and do things. It was a little chilly for most of the time we were there and very windy several of the days, but we still walked out on the beach and let Lily play. It was a fun week. Here are a few photos.....

Lily The Cookie Monster :-)

This evening we went to Publix while at Publix Lily got her free cookie from the bakery like always. We also bought a pack of 13 cookies from the bakery and Jim left those out on our island (sealed and unopened) when we got home. Well, I went in to our bedroom and Jim went into his office. I heard some strange sounds a few minutes later, but I thought she was just playing in her playroom. Then it got very quiet so I decided I better go check on her. I looked in her playroom and she wasn't there. I didn't call out for her but just kept looking and I spotted her on the floor of the kitchen, and sitting between her legs was an opened container of cookies and Lily had 2 cookies in her hand just eating away! It was too funny she was taking a bite of every cookie she could. Before she spotted me I went into the office and got Jim so he could see her too. We both went in their and she started explaining right away that she got the cookies off the counter and opened them. I was kind of impressed that she was able to break the seal and open them. We were also surprised that she was able to reach them. She was so cute, I had to take a few pictures of her. We did tell her that from now on that she needs to tell us before taking things off the counter. We let her finish eating one of the cookies that she had been nibbling on. Jim put Lily to bed tonight and before he laid her down he asked if she was going to sleep good and she said "I'm going to sleep good so I can have more cookies tomorrow! " I think someone likes cookies!

Some Random Pics of Lily from the last week or two!

All of the pictures were below were taken w/ my phone so please excuse any blurriness.

Lily and Grandad on our walk home from the park.

She is so good at almost all of the playground equipment now. I remember when I used to be so afraid for her to be up there.

Eating a yummy cookie at Publix.

Lily went to a Dora Birthday party last weekend. She had so much fun. All the kids were so cute.

We Are Having A GIRL!!!!!!!!!

Today I am 18 weeks and I had my ultrasound appointment. Jennifer the technician said that everything looked great and that we are having another little girl!!! She also said that she measured at 18 weeks so looks like we are right on track! We are very excited about having another little girl and for Lily having a sister. Now that we know what we are having we can start doing some planning! Fun, Fun!! The rest of my visit went well too, I had blood drawn... 5 vials!
The baby's heart rate was 161 and weighs about 7ozs. My blood pressure was 110/62, and I have gained about 8 pounds at this point. I've been feeling her move around a good bit lately. My next appt is December 9th.

Lily stayed with friends while we went to the appt and when we saw here we told her that she was going to have a little sister. Later on she was playing outside and she was off by herself and I heard her singing "I'm a big sister" over and over again. :-) We are just so thankful that everything looked good and that it seems we are right on track.

Our little girl was moving all around so we were not able to get a good profile picture but here are the photos we did get.


A good picture of her spine.

My Sweet Little Dora Princess!

Lily had so much fun trick or treating and I enjoyed taking her. Some of our friends invited us to go w/ them, so we met them at their house and she went trick or treating w/ her friends Glenn and Alexander. She would go up to the doors and say "trick or treat" she also entertained us w/ some singing along the way. Then we came back to our house and took her down our street. She also enjoyed handing candy out when we got back to the house. It was a fun night!






Getting ready to go trick or treating w/ Alexander. He looked so cute in his frog costume!


Waiting patiently! :)

Glenn was dressed as a Fireman.
