Easter Recap '15..finally

Finally getting a chance to recap Easter. As Kenzie is almost 2, the Holidays are becoming even more fun as we celebrate each one!

The week of Easter our Mom's Group had a little potluck and Easter egg hunt. It turned out pretty great! I planned it and was really surprised by the outcome. The kids had so much fun!




one of our mom's has bunnies and brought them for the kids to check out!



 

And one of our moms seriously won the "MOST CREATIVE MOMMY AWARD". Are these not the cutest?!



 

Easter Sunday we took our time, shoot I didn't even know where her basket was.. So I found the closest thing that can resemble her basket and while Daddy took Kenz in the other room I threw everything together and "hid" her basket.
She lit up when she found it!
In her basket this year was:
  •  a blow up pool so I don't have to get in with her every time she wants to cool off.
  • 2 rompers from Target
  • Princess pink Goldfish crackers (that were half eaten 'cuz Bob just opened them right up the night before)
  • Tons and tons of clippie bows. We like the little clips over headbands.
  • Her first pack of peeps (and only candy)- just cuz it's Easter. How can you not receive Peeps in your basket?!Buuuutt...We all don't like them so probably no Peeps next year.
  • Sidewalk Chalk eggs
  

Then I gave her the little eggs the "Easter Bunny" left for her the night before on our doorstep.. aka my Brother in law's girlfriend dropped off little treats. She immediately started to try to eat them. #momfail We didn't dye eggs this year.

 


Our only plans for the day were to go to my parent's house for Brunch. 
P.s. I've come to a conclusion.. We are not a brunch type of family! We wake up way too early to wait and eat hours later. It was still great and of course we still ate after already having pancakes at home. ;)

 
 






Her basket at Grandma and Grandpas! Sister got hooked up!





Without the bubbles.. *meltdown*



Ok give her back the bubbles



All in all a great little day. We went home and I crashed with the little while Bob went fishing.
Next year?! 2 Babes to celebrate with!

Week 22 #bumpwatch



Far Along: 22 weeks! (4-4-15)

Size of the Baby: A Papaya

Maternity Clothes: All bottoms are still regular clothes..my size 8 shorts i'm surprised are still fitting! I start the day with them buttoned and then as the day goes on they just stay opened. Most tops are pre prego but I have a few, esp if going out that i'll wear maternity. For the most part tanks tops with cardigans are my go to.

Stretch Marks: Honestly I really haven't paid too much attention. And haven't tried to prevent. I don't think I got too many or noticeable ones last time either.

Weight gain: Well the past 4 weeks since I've last done a #bumpwatch, I've definitely noticed the increase in my appetite and I can see it on the scale as well. I started this pregnancy by losing 5lbs in the beginning. Now I'm up from that -5 to about 8lbs. Not too bad though considering i'm over 1/2 way through now.


from the front I still look a little chubby and not much prego.. oh well this tee is comfy

Sleep: I've been able to fall asleep better but having problems with once I wake up (super early) like 4 this a.m. I cannot go back to sleep... some morning's are even earlier like 2 or 3. My sleep during those hours are so presh since some days are so exhausting with an almost 2 year old.

Best Moment of the Week: Deciding on princess's name. It was right after we had our follow up anatomy ultra sound.. They were able to get all shots this time and everything looks normal. I finally felt that connection though and it was easier to decide on her name.

Movement: Movin as we speak! It's pretty much all through out the day but mostly in the early am and also at night as we are laying in bed.

Food Cravings: Still all the sweets. And well the opposite, I've had some huge cravings for cream cheese smothered bagels.

Gender: Baby Girl! Kylie Jayne!

Belly Button in or out: 1/2 way mostly an outie.

Anything making you queasy or sick?: No thank goodness. I'm pretty lucky.

What I miss: I'm holding up pretty well. Some days I wish I could have unlimited caffeine to go with those sleepless nights but I'm trying to make my 1 spark a day stretch.

What I'm looking forward to: I have an appt this Monday, just a check up and then soon I know I have to take the glucose test.. Which after downing the drink last time and passing with flying colors I really don't understand what the fuss is about from some people. And hey i'll get 1 hour to myself haha.

Nursery: Sisters get to share a room! It'll make everything so easy too. Everything in one place! Little sister will be in our room for the first six months anyways by our bed in the rock in play which will probably be around the time Kenzie moves into a toddler bed so it'll work out perfectly. I'll just probably get a couple things here and there to tie in her lil sis' name too... ps. Still no idea on her name! update: Kylie Jayne :)

Emotions: I'm doin ok! Holding up pretty well. At times I can have very little patience but for the most part it's ok. - still the same as 4 weeks ago..Man am I a little more irritable these days...It's probably also the lack of sleep.
