Baby Update

It's significantly harder for me to do the pictures and updates
(like I did with Alice)
this time.
I'm pretty sure having 2 littles has something to do with that!

Seeing Lindsey's posts reminded me that I should get on the ball.

Here's what I've got:





(With the best white elephant gift ever.)

Symptoms: 
So many glamorous symptoms happening up in here.
Melasma? Rocking it hard core.
Packing on the pounds? You know it.
Acute sense of smell? Working out at the gym is hard. Stinky men.
Exhaustion? Hard to know if it's the littles, the heat, or the pregnancy. Regardless, I love naps.

Cravings:
Not many, really.
One night. it was oranges.
Sometimes cheese dip. 
I can eat 1/2 of a watermelon like it's nobody's business.

Gender:
She's a girl!
We have named her, but I'll share that in another post.

Sleep:
My wonderful husband installed an AC window unit in our room last night.
Sleep will be much better now!

Movement:
She's moving and grooving all the time!

Other stuff:
Alice often has a baby hiding in her shirt. 
I think that's cute.
She's super excited about meeting this little one and cannot wait for October.
She also kisses my belly a lot and says, 
"Mommy, I love your baby!" about 100 times a day.

Not sure if I've mentioned it yet, or not, but we're planning another home birth.
We love our midwife and loved our birthing experience with Alice.
Hoping for the same (but maybe a little shorter :) ) experience this time around.

It's fun knowing that we're having another girl...hopefully making 3 by the end of the year.
It's nice to know that we have everything we need!

Okay, nap time is almost over.
Time to clean something!

Will you be doing the birth at your house or at your in-laws again?

1. every time i have to go upstairs to get a white shirt so i can take the weekly picture i think "this is so stupid. they're boys. they aren't even going to care. i'm quitting." #3 better not be a girl, cause i have a feeling she'll be real disappointed.

2. that mug. hilarious.

3. i'm loving all these girls in your house and i can't wait to hear her name!!
