Snow Days...

We were fortunate to have gotten several snow days this winter yet we only had one really good snow!  We loved playing in the snow and Essie wanted nothing more than to build a snowman!

Valentine's Day

This year E wanted a very special Valentine's box for school.  She scoured Pinterest and settled on a vending machine.  Of course her daddy raised the bar even further and made it light up!!! She had a blast at school at her party! 

In February she also got to attend her best friend Lexie's birthday party.  She had a BLAST!

25 Weeks

Today I am 25 weeks with Lottie.  If it weren't for the constant sinus illnesses I've had since September I would be feeling great! I have a little more energy and appetite lately.  I do have some back pain/side pain at the end of the day after being on my feet all day.  Lottie has grown to the size of a cauliflower...over 13 inches long and about 2 pounds. 


  • Maternity clothes? I can only wear non-maternity pants if I put a belly band on to keep them up.  The unbutton/fold down trick does not work. 
  • Stretch marks? ha. Just Essie's leftovers!
  • Sleep: Pretty good as long as I can breathe through my nose.  I get up for bathroom breaks a few times but I'm able to fall asleep pretty quickly.  I am having to use the ole pregnancy pillow. 
  • Best moment this week: Essie getting to feel her sister's kicks/hiccups.
  • Movement: Yep...some days are quieter but she moves often.  She even had hiccups for a bit this week. 
  • Food cravings: Cake. Good ole' white cake.  Sour stuff (lemonade cookies, etc.)
  • Gender: Girl!
  • What I miss: having "normal" immune system!!!
  • What I am looking forward to: finally starting her's a HUGE mess and will be a massive undertaking. 
  • Biggest complaint: sinuses (headaches, drainage, dizziness), hormones, lack of energy
  • Milestones: Essie feeling her move!

    20 weeks

    Well we hit the halfway mark with Charlotte "Lottie"! 

  • Maternity clothes? I've pretty much moved to maternity pants for the most part...I was tired of the unbutton & tuck or rubber band trick
  • Stretch marks? ha. Just Essie's leftovers!
  • Sleep: Decent...I've been staying up later and sleeping in since we are on break still.  I have a hard time finding a comfortable position and I wake up often to change positions. 
  • Best moment this week: Lot's more movement and its getting stronger
  • Movement: Yep. 
  • Food cravings: nothing really...
  • Gender: Girl!
  • What I miss: having "normal" sinuses, not having to eat all the dang time, my energy,
  • What I am looking forward to: relaxing the rest of break 
  • Biggest complaint: sinuses (headaches, drainage, dizziness), hormones, lack of energy
  • Milestones: more movement!

  • Essie and I have matching shirts and were taking pictures on Christmas when she thought it would be funny to stuff a pillow and take her own pregnancy picture too!

    Christmas Festivities

    We had a great, busy, hectic, memorable Christmas season.  We of course kept up with our advent tradition and Bobis our Elf gave us so much fun each day. 

    First, Essie had her Christmas party at school...

    Then...we had an early Christmas in Batesville with my parents...

    We baked cookies when Bobis brought E a new apron/hat set.

    Christmas Eve...YaYa and Peepaw came down and we set out milk/cookies/carrots and sprinkled reindeer food in the yard and Essie got to hug and love on Bobis!!!

    Christmas morning we woke to lots of goodies from Santa and we had a HUGE lunch!
