So our family loves Sushi. We have a great Japanese place in town that we visit often. Aiden has decided lately he wants to master the chopsticks. So we started with the kiddy chopsticks and he did quite well I believe. What do you think?
You can spare me the reasons on eating raw fish while pregnant, I know and I don't do it! :)

Can any of you blog geniuses out there help me with what is up with the spacing and bold letters on my post?? I can't figure it out. I've tried everything. Also I would like to know how to make an individual listing for each of my family member on the far left hand bar, any help as to how??

23 week update

23 Weeks Total Weight Gain: not sure I want to know

Maternity Clothes: YES

Gender: still a girl I suppose

Movements: All the time. She kicks so hard it makes me sick sometimes. She is most active in the afternoon and at night.

Sleep: I wake up about 3-4 times a night.

Cravings: this past week it has been Chicken Rotel (which I ate last night and today for lunch)

Best Moment This Week: Getting her some new clothes.

As fun as it has been buying clothes for her, it has been equally as sad getting rid of Aiden's clothes. Until this weekend, I had not sold one single thing of Aiden's. I had NO idea I had this many clothes for him from newborn- 2T but my goodness its alot. This is a picture of Ansley's bedroom floor filled with Aiden's too small clothes. They are from one side of the room, to the other. The boxes are still what was unboxed.

If you know anyone needing boys clothes newborn-2T, send them my way. We can't finish Ansley's room until this floor is cleaned out!

July 4th weekend

We had a great weekend. We have done the same thing the past 3 years. We spent Saturday at my moms with my family and cousins. Then Sunday and Monday in Brandons home town visiting friends and family.My mom had the waterslide at her house and it was so much fun for the kids.

Aiden learned to play a little ladder golf and was actually good!

We went swimming and Aiden was so proud of himself for "remembering" how to jump off the diving board. He loved it!

happy Birthday


Thanks for being the best mom, gram, and friend! LOVE YOU!


We have been best friends for 10 years now. Love you!!

*Beth is pregnant in the pic above which is why I added one from 5 years ago too!*

21 weeks

21-22 weeks

I'm actually closer to 22 weeks than 21, sorry! *I have a horrible sinus infection so sorry about the horrible pic!*

Total Weight Gain: 10 lbs. YIKES!!!

Maternity Clothes: Yes mostly.

Gender: GIRL- I asked for another ultrasound and the doc said the tech felt confident so there wasn't any reason for me to have another. We may go to a local ultrasound clinic and just pay for an ultrasound so Aiden can see her too (good excuse huh?).

Movements: I've actually been able to see it this week. She went crazy during the fireworks this weekend!

Sleep: Not good at all, mainly because of this horrible sinus infection I have.

Cravings: Nothing specific, I will just eat anything.

Stretch Marks: It's becoming more evident that I do have new stretch marks.

Best Moment this week: Seeing her move.

I have really grown this week as you can tell. Today Aiden went to the doctor with me and was SO excited to hear Ansley's heartbeat. Her heartbeat is still in the 160's, it was 161 today. My belly is measuring exactly on schedule!
