Things To Remember: School Work

anna loves computers. they have computers and fun kinder learning games they play at school but she will want to get on my computer and she begs to play on ours. Tonight she was telling me, "It's my school work!!" :) When she is in "real" school and has homework I'm going to remind her just how eager she was to get to do it when she was 2!!

Things to remember: thankfulness

A few days ago I pulled out Anna's fiesta head band that has paper flowers and curly ribbon hanging down the back and I hung it on her "dress up" mirror. In the corner of her room she has a bin filled with tutus and plastic heels and girlie things to play dress up. This morning I was folding laundry while sitting in the rocking chair in her room while she played.

The brightly colored paper flower headband caught her eye and she ran over and asked, "can I have it?" I told her, "sure! That's yours to play dress up with! Grab it off the mirror." So, she dissed ran over and said, "momma!!! You made it for me?! Tank you (thank you) it's beautiful!" All while she hugged my leg. I couldn't bring myself to tell her I didn't make it. Lol. But, really just hearing her thankful heart made me smile from ear to ear. She proudly wore it the rest of the morning.

Macy Jane - 25 weeks, 2 days

How Far Along: 25 weeks and 2 days. :)

Fruit: Baby is the size of "an average rutabaga." what is a rutabaga? A rutabaga, swede, turnip or yellow turnip is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip. So, there you go.

Size: 13.5 inches long.  I had a sono a week 1/2 ago and the sonographer said Macy weighs about 1.5 lbs which is right on target.

Baby changes: "she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture." - from Baby Center dot com

Best Moment this week: My friend who is 7 weeks behind me in her pregnancy found out she's having a girl! That was exciting! Other than that it was a pretty blah week...Anna was sick, I was sick, we stayed home for two days, and we've been pretty lazy.

Gender: Girl! Macy Jane!

Movement: Lots of movement. It is confirmed that Macy moves much more than Anna ever did.

Food Craving: Ring Pops

What I miss: Sleeping through the night

Sleep: See above...I miss it

What I am looking forward to: NOT my next appointment this time...because it's the dreaded glucose test. Praying I pass!

Symptoms: growing pains here and there...feeling her move around a lot.


Total weight gain/ Loss {ya right}: I had my appointment last tuesday and i have only gained a total of 3 lbs. woohoo. she said that's great for me. i have a little extra fluff so i'm good. with anna i only gained 16 so i'm hoping to stay very close to that

Maternity clothes? Yes!

Have you started to show yet? yes

Labor signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On ! woohoo...another perk this pregnancy over anna's is that i haven't started to swell. by this time w/ anna i was not able to wear my rings, my nose had spread, and i couldn't wear my regular shoes. this time everything's great so far and I am praying day and night it stays that way! :)

Mood? I have my days :)

Valentine's Day Memories

9 years ago today, a little over a month of dating Blake, i got my first bouquet of a dozen red roses ever. i had just recently moved back home while in between jobs and apartment searching and my dad saw them and started grilling me, "Oh wow. this is serious. Is this serious? who is this guy? He's making me look bad sending a dozen roses" ;) I played it off. "oh, blake's just a sweet guy..." but i knew i really, really, really liked him. I knew deep down, even then, after a short month, he was the one God made for me. i'm so thankful for him and love him even more today than ever before.

I've always said that I was going to marry a man who sent me flowers. I know that's silly but it was one of the things I knew was important. I knew my daddy sent my mom flowers and I knew they loved each other. I knew that if you care for someone you show it in various ways, one being flowers. :) It meant that that person cared enough about you to think of you, stop their day and order flowers for you. So, it wasn't high on my "list" of things a guy had to do before marrying me but it was there.

Blake showed me much more than those dozen roses. The way he asked about my feelings, cared about what I wanted to do, wanted to spend time with me, continuing to randomly send me flowers throughout our relationship, telling me I was beautiful, laughing with me, geniunely loving me all the days we spent together; even my bad days.

I am not a huge fan of Valentine's Day because it's a made up holiday and every woman in american who has a significant other is being told they are loved and getting flowers and jewelry. The men practically have to. I like random acts where it's from the heart. I mean i'm not going to turn down diamonds or flowers ever but i'm thankful for blake and love blake everyday. he really is the one God made for me and I can't ever thank God enough for him.

A&M - sonogram pics

I'll have to post the sono pics seperately later for you but tonight we compared Macy's 24 week sonogram picture and Anna's 25th week sonogram picture and there's a chance Macy isn't going to turn the daddy-daughter twins into the daddy-daughters triplets!

Until I had them side by side all I saw was Anna and Blake. I was smiling all day and happy as can be because hey, Anna is beautiful and Blake is handsome. :) But, upon further inspection there are clear differences in A&Ms noses and eyes. Anna has the Kallemyn wider-set eyes. I noticed it first thing when we had her sono and mentioned it to Blake even. But, side by side Macy's aren't as wide set. When we got new glasses last year the person fitting me even mentioned I have really close set eyes and it limited my glasses selection. So, maybe Macy has my close set eyes? And their nose slope is different. Anna's goes up mote and Macy's doesn't. And, the lips. Blake has full lips. I noticed that on Anna's sono that she had really full looking lips and she sure enough have her daddy's mouth and full lips. Macy's it was hard to tell but they didn't look as full as Annas.

Reaching? Maybe a little. Ok, maybe a lot. :) I know it's a long shot given Blakes super dominate genes, and given we are looking at grainy sonogram pictures but a girl can dream that she'll have children who somewhat resemble her, right?! Maybe Macy will be Anna's twin but with Brown hair instead of "lellow" :) and, blue eyes instead of hazely green like her daddy's.

Only 16 weeks before we meet Miss Macy and I can't wait to squeeze and love and kiss on her no matter who she looks like!! :)

Macy on the Move!

I've been feeling Macy kick and bounce about for a few weeks and started feeling it on the outside but of course when you touch my belly she stops. So, Blake hasn't felt her...until today! This morning she was doing her Jane Fonda and Blake felt her really good kicks four or five times. I love that!!
