23 weeks and many more to go!

Swollen from head to toe? Increased blood flow, by now an old friend, is to blame. Consider a trip to the shoe store because loosening ligaments will cause your feet to expand even more in the weeks to come.

So far no swollen feet, hands or legs. Just belly! My feet so far are the same size and I hope they stay that way!!! I really have some cute shoes and hate to have to lose them because of feet growth. This baby is really a mover! She loves to kick and poke! I am LOVING every min of it as I never really felt the girls move around. Adrianna never moved. She loved sleeping - still does. Gabriella moved here and there to let me know she was ok - now I can't get her to sit still. I wonder what this little princess is going to be like on the outside world! My fav part of the day is at night when everyone is sleeping. The baby and I get to bond when it's so quite. She loves when I drink Tea. She'll move around and kick my hands whenever I place them on my belly. I love looking at my belly too. The girls love it too and ask often if they can kiss the baby, talk to the baby, rub the baby and listen to the baby's heart beat! It doesn't get any better then this!! Dave on the other hand I think is a little freaked out that there is someone in there, but at night he loves holding the belly and feeling her kick. However she stops the min he gets his hands on there :) I see another stubborn princess on our hands! All three girls were/are like that with Dave since they've been in my belly! But he does get a few kicks here and there.

Life Lessons

In the last few weeks my eyes have opened to a few life lessons. I am more inspired to get moving on certain projects and ready to move forward with things!

I have so many great ideas on what I want to do. I just need to do it! I need to stop thinking, dreaming, planning and talking about it. Just need to do it! So starting tomorrow I am taking the 1st step towards doing it! Well I guess you can say starting today since I am blogging about it so it means I have to do it ;)

Keep ears and eyes open!


We've found out we are expecting another new princess in our family!! We are so excited. That make baby girl # 3 for us! We have 2 female dogs too. Poor Dave - stuck with us :) He couldn't be happier (really I think he likes being the only male - he doesn't have to be shared). Now to figure out how I really want to do this baby room. I have so many ideas! So many!! Don't get me started on names - we can't seem to really agree. However I think we've narrow it down to 3 and will announce the name when she's born (since it could change from now to then!).

Dave's doing well with his job and loving it! I am adjusting to this whole moving thing and stay at home mom thing. Meeting new people and hoping to start getting out with them a little bit more ;) Girls are doing GREAT. Loving their new friends, school, and hometown! We've added a few new members to the family. Lexie - Collie Dog. Fuzzy - our male Guinea Pig. Coconut - male Guinea Pig. (I had no part in naming those things!) 3 new fish in Dave's tank (1 Oscar and 2 Piranha). I think that's all we'll add for now! :) Of course Gabriella thinks the pony next door is her but it's not (she'll tell you otherwise).
There is our family updates!
