Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 25

I feel like time is flying! 
I don't feel like I should be this far along already but I am not going to complain! 


How far along? 25 weeks
Total weight gain: 13 pounds
Maternity clothes? I've been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones... just the ones from Miss P. :P
Sleep: Still sleeping fabulously which is awesome and a bit shocking!
Best moment this week: We survived our 2 day drive to TN with Miss P on her first long car ride!
Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin' hours!

Movement: I definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn't surprising because I didn't crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still when I get really congested and can't breathe it makes me sick. Other than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): In but slowly getting shallower

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion! BLAH! Has a little swelling in my ankles from sitting in the car so long for 2 days and slight round ligament pain as well.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy this week.
Looking forward to: Seeing our family and friends while in TN.

Slippin' on Some Huggies Diapers on My Active Mover + $25 Target Gift Card Giveaway

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #HuggiesSlipOn #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO"

 Do you have a VERY active toddler in your house? 
Does that toddler cry when you it comes time for a diaper change? 
Does your toddler turn into an angry alligator trying to pull a death roll during diaper changes? 
Have you found your toddler in a not so pleasant, stinky, and GROSS situation?

If you answered yes to any or ALL of these questions above, then I have something for you! 

Let Huggies Slip-on Diapers come to the rescue!! 

I definitely have a very active 14 mth old that is always on the move who doesn't always enjoy stopping for a diaper changing break. 
Here is one of our "fun" diaper changes. 
Awesome isn't it?! 
NOT really!

This summer has been very popular when it comes to all things Nautical. 
It doesn't matter if you live on or near the beach, you can always bring a little something nautical into your world.

I thought I would make a printable that goes along the nautical theme but isn't screaming nautical at you. 

Here ya go:

Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 24

Rolling through week 24 and I like the thought of only having 15 weeks left.
I have felt great this whole pregnancy body wise, but I am definitely bigger than I was with Miss P at this time and I am a little nervous how things will progress toward the end. We'll see!! 

 
How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain: 13 pounds
Maternity clothes? I've been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones... just the ones from Miss P. :P
Sleep: I am SHOCKED at how well I am sleeping! With Miss P, I struggled many nights. I still wake up about the same time having to go to the bathroom around 4 or 5 but I can normally fall right back to sleep.
Best moment this week: Had my 24 week appt. where I got to hear the heartbeat again. Always great to hear that noise! And everything is going great and I'm measuring right on track.
Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin' hours!

Movement: I definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn't surprising because I didn't crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still when I get really congested and can't breathe it makes me sick. Other than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): In but slowly getting shallower

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion! BLAH! And this is TOTALLY weird and I keep forgetting to mention it but the tip of my second toe on my left foot itches all the time. So annoying! lol
Happy or Moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy this week.
Looking forward to: We are heading to TN for a while so it will be fun to see our family and friends that we haven't seen in so long. I am NOT looking forward to the drive and the crazy running around we will be doing though. I think we all will be worn out by the end.

Ingredients:
-Mint OREOs
- 1/4 cup Milk (adding additional if necessary.)
-Vanilla Ice Cream
-Green food coloring (optional)

In a blender, combine the OREOs, milk, and ice cream.
 Blend until smooth.

"Life's an Adventure" Pallet Art

I needed to finally get my butt in gear and decorate my mantle so I thought I would make something. 
 And this is what I created.
 I'm thrilled with it! 

I really liked how the Stats board looked over the mantle for Miss P's birthday party so I decided to reuse the board to make the pallet art.

Faux Fireplace Makeover

We were out and about one day and stopped at an Estate Sale Consignment place and saw this SUPER ugly faux fireplace.
We don't have a fireplace in our house and talked about putting a fake one in our living room area so we thought... why not?! 

Here is what we did to make it over.

This is what this little gem looked like when we brought it home. Quite the beauty, eh?! lol
It had a insert but it was pointless. Just had fake logs that when you plugged it in just lit up, so we took it out all together.

Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 21 and Gender Reveal

It feels darn good being on the "other side" of the halfway point! 
I am still having some rough days here and there but hopefully as the weeks go on, they will continue to disappear.

We had our 20 wk ultrasound this past Wednesday and got to see our sweet baby for the first time in 10 wks.
Always fabulous seeing this picture.
 Baby M's profile is pretty cute and we already think this baby has Travis' nose. 

The baby was laying its back and was causing a little bit of trouble for the Ultrasound Tech to get good pictures but she managed to get all the images she needed to get of the baby to be sure all is going well.

Luckily, the baby was very willing to show itself first thing during the ultrasound so we found out the gender right away. It was a good thing the tech checked immediately because the baby sat Indian style the rest of the ultrasound and wouldn't show anything.

Would you like to know what Baby M 2.0 is?
