Big Sister Day

Since we can't be quite sure when baby #2 will make her arrival we went ahead and designated yesterday as big sister day. Aidan got to pick out a toy at Build a Bear (she chose Hello Kitty) and then we took her to lunch at Cheesecake Factory. She was also supposed to select a present for the baby, but let's be honest that wasn't her top priority.

Aidan was only about 4 months old when I could put her hair in pony tails. Enter Mandy's contest here.

4d Ultrasound

Yesterday we had our 4d ultrasound. We discovered that baby #2 has thick short hair, extremely chubby cheeks and is 105% a girl. She's head down but is laying on the complete opposite side of where I thought she was which made me feel kind of dumb. Also she kept licking me! She had both of her hands out and was lapping away like a cat. It was a little weird, but I'll try and take it as a compliment.

Aidan said she looks like a squirrel and lost interest pretty quickly, but I think she's pretty cute. She had her face smooshed right up against me so it was a little hard to get a good shot.

Completely sticking out her tongue! Check out that double chin, I'm a little scared.

Big Sister

Playing around with my Hipstamatic polaroid pic app on my Iphone. These are the sister shirts I bought for the girls. I was going to go to Hobby Lobby and buy iron on decals and sequins and then I woke up from that dream.

The past week Aidan has suddenly rediscovered things we put in the baby's room. The bumbo, rattles, and of course the bassinet. I hadn't heard her make any noise in a few minutes and was of course prepared for disaster. Aidan had tucked herself into the bassinet because she was the little baby. Ohhhhhhh boy.

Are we there yet?

I'll be 34 weeks tomorrow. Last night I slept in my bed, the recliner, and the guest bed. Nothing made any difference. We have also reached the stage of pregnancy where people burst into spontaneous giggles when they see me waddle by. Also maybe sometimes I look down just to double check that everything is still where it's supposed to be. Also I think maybe my pelvis is broken.

I just think sometimes people should be honest. If you are supermodel who has never before encountered the joy of carbs, I'm sure pregnancy is just a hunky dory good time. Otherwise, the 3rd trimester gets a little looooong.

We're trying to set a timer every 20 minutes for Aidan to work on potty training. I can sometimes make it 15 minutes before I have to go. Give me an M&M.

And no Aunt Internet I will not miss being pregnant. I will miss the tiny tiny babies but my dwarf body will be just delighted when it is done with its job.

Spring Photo Shoot

Mandy took pictures of Aidan on Tuesday at Hafer Park. I think this is my favorite photo shoot ever! I'm always surprised at how many good pictures Mandy gets since I witness all the running off and wrestling that's involved with getting a toddler in front of a camera. Especially when one of you is 8 months pregnant. There was a lot of sweating. I think Aidan looks like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz in these pics.

I can't pick a favorite!!!
Aidan has asked me to braid her hair like Aunt Mandy every day since we took these.

Sometimes I like the outtakes the best...

Photo Friday-Action

Hey I finally found a picture that Mandy didn't take so I could enter her contest!

This was Halloween 2008. When I say the words pumpkin head I mean it in only the most adorable way. This was the first time I remember her really running around and looking like a big kid.
