Grace's Party, part II

Here is the second part of Grace's party. This was the next day...since Miranda was sick I offered to have a small family party at my house.

I made an Elmo cake...i do not make cakes, is my first take at it. My only care was that Grace looked at the cake and knew if it was Elmo or now...she loved it!

Me and my first decorated cake ever!

Happy Birthday, again!

Blowing out the candles again, she was getting this down pat!

Eating cake, again!

Getting a birthday hug from Andrew...

...and a birthday kiss too! :)

Being silly with Nene

And of course I had to add this sweet picture of my boys!

Grace's Party, part I

Ok, I know Grace is not my daughter (she is my niece), but I had to post these pictures, 1. because they are so cute 2. because my sister could not be at her own daughter's party because she was home sick as a dog with the flu, and 3. because there are family and friends out there who check my blog who would want to see these pictures (Aunt Liza & Aunt Kelly especially)!!! So enjoy the moment by moment pictures of Grace's 2nd birthday party...more to come too!

15 weeks and growing!

Here is a 15 week update! Again, I still feel huge, but there is not much I can do about that can I? I am growing a baby after all. I had to go to the doctor on Wednesday because I was having some bleeding- everything is ok. They did an ultra sound and the baby is measuring big- a week bigger thank its age. I have only gained 4 pounds so I guess I can not complain that much, I just feel big. I am definitely in maternity clothes which is weird to me because I was not wearing them until about 16 weeks with Andrew and I started wearing them about 2 weeks ago. I am not so tired anymore, so I must be getting my second trimester energy! Yea! We do not know the sex yet, in about a month we until then enjoy the pictures!

15 weeks

Here is a picture of my face, Nikki! Just for you! :)

Here I am pregnant with Andrew at 14 weeks. See the difference???

Now that I look at these pictures side-by-side, I sure do look like I am carrying this baby different. What do you think???

This is what you do when you live in Florida...

You go to the beach and the pool all in the same day in JANUARY. Sorry St. Louis friends and the rest of you who live in cold places, but I am so happy to be in warm weather and so is my son. He loves it!!! See for yourself...

I love this picture- Matt and Andrew in the same position, doing the same cute!

The first shell he found...

The second shell he found...

Pool time after the beach...

Daddy is so much fun in the pool!

This is what Andrew did for an hour...stood on the first step and played with his toys!

Yes, I did go to the beach and the pool that day, I was just the one taking the pictures therefore there are no pictures of me. Sorry friends!
