So now that we found out we're having a girl, I get to buy lots of girly stuff!! So EXCITING!!! Scott's mom said she was going shopping right after she found out last night, lol.

So I've had the bedding that I've wanted for a girl picked out for awhile. If we were going to have another boy we were just going to use the same stuff, BUT it's a girl so time to spend some money!!!! I found the perfect stuff on e-bay. I had to buy the mobile, curtain, wall decorations & lamp shade, and I'm bidding on the bed 'n a bag right now. If you bid on the bedding instead of just buying it you can save up to $50!! This e-bay "store" also has SUPER cute clothing to, which I will probably purchase in the future. The store is called Beyond Bedding.


So last night I actually slept pretty good, probably had something to do with waking up super early yesterday, but it was nice to feel good when I woke up!

So yesterday was the big day. I had to wake up super early so I could ride into work with Scott. Got up at 5 a.m. so we could drop off Connor and be to work at 6:30 so we could leave around 2:30. Yesterday seemed to drag on forever. I went from being exhauted to being nervous and at one point wanted to puke. I just was so afraid something was going to be wrong. So 2:30 rolls around, I drink up the last of my water that I'm suppose to drink and Scott & I head to the Dr. Office. You're suppose to arrive about 10-15 minutes early, but I don't know why. Last time it only took us 5 minutes to go back into the room, but this time we didn't go back there until the time of the u/s. The lady who was doing the u/s wasn't rude, but she was pretty short and not very talkative. It made me nervous thinking there was something wrong when she kept looking at the same thing for a few minutes straight. Then about 30 minutes into it I HAD to pee really really bad!!! She gave me a cup and said you can pee this much. How are you suppose to just stop peeing???? After that she looks and says, 'I don't see a penis", WOHO!!! Overall the procedure took about an hour and fifteen minutes. The baby was going NUTS from the rice krispie treat that I had eaten before going in, lol. She did double check once or twice to make sure she didn't see any boy parts, and she didn't. So WE'RE HAVING A GIRL!!! We already decided on a name, Savannah Lynn.

1/2 Way

So last night was fun. The St. Dennis Festival officially began! We played pop toss a bunch, and I get to eat some corn. So far the total count is 2 pieces of corn, with many many more to come this weekend!!

So today I'm officially 20 weeks! 1/2 over!! I can't believe it! It's kind of nice being pregnant in the summer, because we are so busy, it goes by so quickly!! I can't believe in 2 days and 5 hours we will be finding out if we're having a little boy or little girl! It's so exciting! Everyone keeps asking what I think it is, but I don't want to say one way or the other in case my feelings are wrong. But anyways, I thought I'd post some pictures of my progressing baby belly. 1st picture was taken at 8 weeks and the second one was taken this morning at 20 weeks!

So today has been your typical Friday, pretty boring!! We have lots going on this weekend, it'll be fun, but it'll go by fast!! 72 hours from now I will be walking into the Dr's office to have my ultrasound to find out if we're having a boy or girl!! Can't wait!!!

So yesterday afternoon/night we had some major storms in the area!! This summer has been full of crazy storms that have brought tornado's, flooding, hail, etc. Connor is suppose to have swim lessons on Thursday night's, but obviously with the tornado warnings that did not happen. The first part of the storm there wasn't any lightening or thunder, so me & Connor got to play outside, then while eating dinner I decided I didn't feel comfortable sitting right next to a bunch of windows, so I decided to eat in the middle of the living room (not on the couches, because the skylights are right above them, lol). Well there was confirmed tornado's in the area, but we didn't see any, HOWEVER we did have a TON of water! This was taken in our backyard, we had a river!!

Poor Connor! Last night we decided to make some cookies. I take them out of the oven, and he's SO excited about them, so he's kind of leaning forward to see them.... well he tripped and hit his chin on the hot pan! OUCH! Now he has a burn accrossed his face, poor guy!!

So last night I finished the book I was reading, Echoes by Danielle Steel. It was probably one of my favorite Danielle Steel books that I've read in awhile. Lately I've been really into reading anything from around World War 2, fiction or non-fiction, it really doesn't matter to me. I really liked the story line, the only thing I will complain about is the ending. I really liked how it ended, but I feel like there where to many things left opened at the end. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has remotely liked other Danielle Steel books or any story's from that era. Now I have to decide if I should start my book club book (it's on August 7th), or if I can squeeze in another book before then.....

Baby Food

Well last night was pretty calm around the homefront. Worked on some homework and read my book. I almost have it finished, I should be able to finish it tonight!

So today I decided to look up baby food recipes online. I never made homemade food for Connor, but for some reason this time I really want to try it out and see how it works. I know it will be a lot healthier for the baby, I just hope I can committ to the time it'll take everyday to make it. Thankfully I'll be able to make a couple of days worth at one time, and just store some in the fridge. I found this GREAT website for recipes wholesomebabyfood.com I found baby cereal recipes, fruit, veggie & meat recipes, everything I would need for the first 8-10 months! We'll probably start introducing food around the same time as we did for Connor. I think the first time Connor had cereal was about 4.5 months, and they say to start between 4-6 months.

Baby Book

So this day is dragging, I'm super tired........ugh!!!! But at least it's lunch time soon and I get to get away from my desk for awhile!!

So today I decided to start looking for a baby book. This is one thing I did not get when I had Connor and someone had to buy me one at the Hospital Gift Shop (overall the baby book worked for what you need it to do, but it isn't the prettiest, and I would have rather had something nicer looking, but oh well). So to prepare, I'm making sure I get it WAY in advance, we will probably be purchasing it next Monday after we have the BIG U/S!!!! Well anyways, searching the Babies R Us Website, these are the two I have picked out. I can't wait to be able to purchase one, I can't believe it's only one week away from finding out if we're having a boy or girl!! I'm getting so excited!!


So overall this weekend was pretty fun, but of course it went way to quickly!! Friday night Connor had a temp of 103, which always sucks, but by Saturday morning he was back to normal! Went to Kohl's Saturday, and then Connor & I went and visited Scott at work, came home took a nap, then all of us went to my cousin's high school graduation party. I can't believe he's already graduated, dang I'm getting old, lol! Sunday was fun! We went to the Dane County Fair even though it was flippin HOT, but only for 2 hours! We ate some ice cream, played some games, ate some food, etc. When we got home we all were wiped out and took a 2 hour nap before going to my Aunt Missy's for dinner. I got to meet my brother's girlfriend for he first time, and she seems really nice!

Almost every Sunday night it seems like I can't sleep, I don't know if it's partial insomnia, or what! I laid down at about 10:30ish and by 11:30 for some reason i felt sick, so i got up and started reading my book. by about 12:30 I was laying down again to try and finally see if I could sleep, but then Connor started waking up.......SO I went and laid down in his room, finally fell asleep sometime after 1 a.m. Connor woke up 2 other times and then I heard Scott getting ready for work at 4:45 this morning......ugh!! Seriously! I usually never hear Scott getting ready for work, and don't usually hear Connor throughout the night, most of the time he just magically appears in our room in the morning, lol. Out of all the nights to not sleep well, why does it have to be Sunday?? Why can't it be Saturday when I know I get to sleep in the next day?? Mondays are already hard enough, but without much sleep it's even worse!!! If I wasn't preggo I would probably drink some NyQuil to fall asleep, but that's not really an option right now!

Building a House

So I ate WAY to much at lunch today, lol. Maybe that'll help me gain some weight?? I guess we'll find out!! Why do Fridays always seem to drag on forever? Or is it just me?

So, someday I really want to build my own house, that way I can have WHATEVER I want, lol. I don't know if it'll ever be realistic or not, but we at least need to get a bigger house in about 3-4 years. I was searching threw housing planes today, and found this one. The only changes i would make are flipping the toilet & closet in the master suite, because I would want to get into the closet without having to walk threw the bathroom every time. And also, we would add a 3rd car garage onto it! So hopefully someday we'll be able to do something like this, because it's perfect for everything we would ever need!!!

Wish List

So my cousin text messaged me today asking if I was working. Of course I'm working, lol. I work an 8:30-5 job, M-F! Anyways, she decided that she was going to go try on wedding dresses! I'm sad that I can't be there for her, but she is sending me pictures of the dresses!

So with my built up energy & anticipation of the upcoming baby I've decided to make a "wish list" at Babies R Us. I know I wont get another baby shower since this is my second, but I figured that the baby is due so close to Christmas, maybe I could steer some people towards some things that I might want/need! Is this a bad idea? I hope not. I don't want people thinking that they HAVE to buy me anything for this baby, cause they don't! But if they were going to buy me something for Christmas anyways, why can't it be something that I need/want?? We really do not need much, and I know I'll add more stuff as it gets closer, but this is what I've found so far:


So last night Connor kept waking up, so I decided to go lay down with him in his room. At about 3 a.m. I woke up and was alone in the room. That little stinker woke up and went and laid next to daddy, lol! On other notes, my car is PAID OFF!!! WOHO!!! And also we submitted our application to refinance our mortgage, so between the two we'll be saving about $450!!!

So 10 more days until the big U/S!! I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. I thought I would be disappointed if it was another boy, but the closer it gets, I don't think I will be. As much as I REALLY want a little girl to be able to dress up and play barbies with, it would save us a TON of money to have another boy. We already have all of the bedroom decorations and we already have a lot of clothes that would work! The anticipation is really starting to get to me, I really want to know! We have the perfect girl name picked out, but haven't decided on a boy name yet. We have a couple of options, but not sure I LOVE any of them.... at least we still have time!!

So driving home from work today I was in a pretty good mood for once. I wasn't very tired, I wasn't yawning like crazy on the drive home, etc....

Connor had his first Preschool 1 swimming lessons tonight. 1/2 of the time was spent "going over rules" and then trying to get Connor in the pool. He's been in the pool by himself before, but for some reason he just didn't want to go in without mommy or daddy. I was SO mad at him for making a scene and not listening to his "teacher". Finally he went into the pool! Except, 1/2 of the time he STILL wasn't listening, and just doing what he wanted to do!! Do I have the worst 3 year old?? He NEVER seems to listen like all of the other kids! And it doesn't help that I have a really short temper plus all of the hormones are making it even worse. Am I really ready to deal with another one?? How can I make him listen? Am I a horrible mother? I just don't know...ugh I'm just so frustrated at this point, and don't know what to do!!!


So this is my first post, a little exciting!! I've read multiple blogs before but never have started my own, so this should be an interesting experience!!!

So today I realized something, well I've realized it before but it's become more real for me. The internet can be a blessing and a curse. Being pregnant with your second child you think would be easy and care free, right? WRONG! I am so much more paranoid this time around and every little pain/pull I'm searching for it online to see what kind of horrible thing it could be. Is this normal? Why did I not experience this with my first pregnancy? Was I just naive about all of the horrible things that can happen?
