Everly and I went out last week with Daniel and took some photos together in our matching outfits! I didn’t realize taking pictures with toddlers was so challenging but we ended up getting some cute candid shots. It was an adventure for sure being 25 weeks pregnant, chasing around an energized toddler, and trying to capture some photos together. I’ve learned to roll with it and take what you can get haha 🙂 Yesterday our girl turned 20 months old and I am now 26 weeks pregnant! Time is flying by but we’re doing our best to enjoy every moment. We have lots of fun family events coming up and I’m really looking forward to celebrating them. We have our annual Valentines Day trip to Solvang on the 14th, Daniel’s birthday on March 5th, our 15th anniversary on March 11th, my birthday on April 6th, our baby shower for baby boy, and before we know it, his arrival in May. Also, our sweet Everly Jane will be turning 2 years old in June! There’s so much to look forward to and in the mean time, we’re still enjoying our days at home together watching Everly grow into such a beautiful, smart, and sweet girl. We couldn’t be more proud of her and she continues to impress us daily with new things she’s learning and discovering. My favorite is hearing her sweet little voice talking so much. She’s so good at communicating already and she surprises us every day with saying even more and more words and phrases. I love hearing her say her name. She pronounces it “oh-wee.” We took her to our local zoo a couple days ago along with my parents and we had the sweetest morning together. We let her wander around and explore and we ended it with a lunch in the park nearby. I’m loving these precious days with my girl so much and so happy my parents get to be a part of her life and watch her grow. My pregnancy is still going smooth and our little boy is growing so big! At our last ultrasound they said he was a big boy and I’m definitely feeling it for sure. I’m feeling him move around so much lately, even as I’m writing this I feel him kicking me 🥰 Just a couple more weeks until my 3rd trimester. Here we go!
We can’t wait to meet our baby boy! We’ve been spending a lot of our time on our house lately getting everything ready for him to arrive. Dan has been building an office in our backyard the last few months and we recently moved all of his things out of his current office and changed it into Everly’s new bedroom. We have a few small additions we’re going to add but it’s almost complete! We were so excited to give her her own bedroom and she’s been loving it. Her favorite is the new kitchen we gave her. She loves the one at her Nana and Papa’s house so we had to get her one. She loves pretending to cook meals (num nums) for us and her favorite stuffed animals. We have all her toys and clothes organized and a really great space for her to enjoy it all. I’ll be sharing some photos soon 🙂 We’re all so excited for the next upcoming months and we’ve been so happy and content. It’s going to be such a change having another little one in the house and I’m sure it will take some time to adjust, but I’m sure looking forward to all the baby snuggles and newborn delights with our boy. I can’t wait to see Everly hold him for the first time. I know my heart will just melt! This second trimester has been great and the nausea definitely let up. I do feel like I’m quite a bit bigger with this pregnancy and my mobility has been a little more limited. We had our second trimester ultrasound and they said he was a big boy. I think he may make his appearance earlier than expected. His due date as of now is May 16th but I’m predicting he’ll come between the 4th-12th. We’ll see! I can’t wait to hold our miniature Daniel and my heart is so happy.
