I feel Something!!!

For the last week I have felt the flutterings of baby girl #2. It is only the beginning of the best part of pregnancy...feeling baby move around in there. It has gotten me super excited!!!!

Just finished up father's day cards on shutterfly with new pictures. I am slightly obsessed with shutterfly and all I can do on it. No joke I have at least one annual photo book in progress and I make super cute holiday cards for every little holiday. Just a little something extra when sending pics to family. I ALWAYS have multiple coupons that I use. Heck I even have $20 in credit for baby announcements for when the baby gets here.

I decided to add a pic of my awesome husband throwing my daughter up in the air in the pool. My daughter is seriously a mermaid in the water!!!

Silver Lining

Our family has had one of the toughest years we have ever had. A couple of months ago Violet suffered a severe concussion while at daycare. Just this week my Granny Violet whom my Violet is named after suffered a major concussion complete with passing out in a pool of blood while shopping at the store. She is still in the hospital unable to walk or move much without getting dizzy. I have already made 2 trips across the state to visit her. She is my last living grandparent and she is very special to me so it has been really hard for me.

Our house issues include a leak under our wood floors that are only 2 years old. We have been battling insurance for over 12 weeks to fix it. It was only hours ago that it was finally fixed. No more living on concrete floors while waiting for insurance to pay for our new wood floors.

My laptop also broke after 2 and a half years so I am currently using my new and really fast pink computer. It is cute and I love it. Happy Mother's Day for me. If it has not been one expense it has been another.

The one bright spot is I am pregnant with our 2nd baby!!!!! I am currently 16 weeks and 2 days which puts me due on October 27th. Violet was due October 31st and came all on her own on the 14th. So I really hope this baby chooses any day but that one so they can each have their own day. We are super super excited and this will probably be our last baby. Of course nothing this year comes for this family without difficulties. I have a hematoma in my uterus which puts me at high risk. So that means twice as many doctor appointments for me and one nervous MaMa. An early ultrasound shows that this baby will be a Baby Girl!!!!! I will find out for sure on the 24th. It seems there is no stem on this apple.
