Peter Pan

Connor loves to play with his shadow when it decides to come out and play. The other day he went up to the wall and said "high five" and then "boom!" While saying those phrases he high fived and fist bumped his shadow/the wall.

He sure is curious. I love him!

I feel like this year I am SO excited for Christmas! I don't know why I felt so Scroogy last year, but this year is completely different. 

Our day usually starts off with Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, and then we follow that with The Polar Express. I guess that definitely helps with the mood, but it's always fun hearing Connor saying "Tanta." 

One thing this year I have definitely learned is online shopping is fantastic! Shopping with a toddler that has the attention span of a fly and being pregnant has been quite daunting, however Amazon has saved the day! I signed up for a free trial of their Amazon Prime (in which I just cancelled), and so I received most packages within 2 days of ordering. {cheers!}

I'm just excited to GIVE this year! 

I guess this year has just been so crazy with Brandon's job loss, having to move, being pregnant, etc etc, I feel like this Holiday season is a good way to look over this year and be truly grateful for everything we have. I know I can't help but look around our house with the tree lit up and think how blessed we are! 

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! We have 6 days till Christmas and I'm stoked!

Merry Christmas!

15 Weeks

I am officially 15 weeks today on this second pregnancy. 

Did you ever think growing up that there are really so many complications with pregnancy? I know I sure didn't. I remember growing up thinking I'd meet a great guy, fall in love get married and we'd start a family. You never really hear about all the scary things that can happen during the pregnancy. 

This pregnancy has been a little bit harder on me than Connor was. With him I didn't really have complications until I went preeclamptic, which caused an early delivery, but everything turned out fine. This baby however has made me bleed twice {sorry if that's TMI}. Once at 9 weeks, and then another time at 14 weeks, on the dot. At 9 weeks we found out everything was fine, no issues...However at 14 weeks we found out that I have a low lying placenta. The doctor was really nice and said the majority of woman that have this issue early on it goes away {as the belly and baby get bigger, the placenta will rise up}. I'm constantly praying that will happen, because if it doesn't, and it does eventually cover my whole cervix I'll have to have a c-section. 

Now the c-section doesn't scare me. Recovery with a rowdy boy does. Connor loves to run, jump and climb on me, and I just worry that it would be really hard for him to understand. But we're having a lot of faith that things will change. I've seen my Heavenly Father's hand throughout this pregnancy already, and I know he'll continue to watch and protect our family. 

Good news is we find out January 17th. Mark your calendars and let me know your guesses! {We do have a regular check up December 26th, to check on heartbeat and things too}
