Annalise [My outdoorsy 17 month old]

This sweet girl is almost a year and a half old! Where has the time gone?

While we had capris and short sleeves on just days ago we had to break out the boots and winter jacket again this week. Silly weather. Doesn't it know this little girl wants to spend 99% of her time outside?

As you can see, we've got an acrobat on our hands who can no longer be trusted around certain things unsupervised. She can even scale the couch without incident now.

She's even taken and interest in doing somersaults.

And just look at last summers tennis shoes compared to this one! Doesn't seem like that's possible.

While we're still waiting on the weather to cooperate, mommy and Annalise did the daunting task of sorting through all the spring and summer clothes yesterday. It was NOT fun. Well, maybe a little because I forgot about all the cute clothes she's received but then of course we had to try on e.v.e.r.y. pair of shoe and skirt in the tub. I think those little white legs need some sun, don't you?

I foresee a summer filled with park visits, picnics, and soaking up the warm fresh air. This girl has no fear when it comes to the "side" (slide) or running around with others twice her size.

Mommy better get a new pair of running shoes cause this girl's going to keep me busy!

14 weeks

We're 14 weeks today!

Two weeks until my next appointment, four to six weeks until we find out the gender, and roughly twenty-six weeks until we meet this new bundle of joy. 

Quite the count down but I can only imagine how quickly it'll go by as the weather warms up.

This week baby #2 is approx. 3.5-4 inches long and weighs approx. 1.5 ounces.
He/she is grimacing, smiling, laughing, and practicing swallowing. Now that baby's fully formed the main focus this trimester is growth. 
Not only will he/she double in size, but we'll be able to feel and see movement too!

Here's my baby belly as it stands this morning. I think I've officially entered that awkward stage where it's hard to tell if I'm pregnant or just had one too many desserts.

Unfortunately, I think I can also say goodbye to my much flatter stomach until next winter. Boo-hoo. :(

Hard to believe green grass existed in those photos this time last year; right now all I see out my window is brown. Yuck! I want my garden back!

Until next time...
