I can't believe I am already 13 weeks pregnant and have started my 2nd trimester. I defiantly feel and look pregnant much faster with this pregnancy than I did with Landon. I am wearing both maternity and regular tops and maternity/elastic bottoms.
This morning Jason and I had our 12 week doctor appointment and ultrasound. The baby looks great and is perfectly healthy. We could not be happier. Even though we have been through this process before it's still hard to believe that we are having a second child. It's just as exciting seeing him/her on the screen as it was with Landon.
I go back in 4 weeks at 16 weeks pregnant for another ultrasound. I had early cervix dilation with Landon and went into pre-term labor and he was born at 33 weeks 4 days. I found out about my early contractions and shorting cervix at 19 weeks and was put on bed rest till I have birth. This time around we know I have this issue so we will have more frequent ultrasounds to check the cervix. This morning my cervix looked nice, long and closed.
Tuesday Landon had his final tumbling class at school and received a medal. Parents were allowed to come and watch all the tumbling they have learned since August. It was by far the cutest thing I have seen in awhile watching 2 and 3 year old's tumble. Landon and his friends were so CUTE! Jason took the morning off and since I work just down the hall I was able to leave my classroom to watch.

He really enjoyed tumbling this year and we will enroll him when we return to school in August.
We have had a pretty busy and semi-rough weekend. Busy because we have had some activities planned for the weekend and rough because of Landon's behavior. We are certainly in full swing of the terrible two's, but now we are moving right along in the terrifying three's. Everyone has been telling me that 3's are worse than 2's. WORSE, how can anything be worse than the typical 2 year old lay on the floor kicking and screaming, its mine, I want that, NO, cant go to a restaurant, heck cant go out in public without a tantrum 2 year old behavior. Saturday was my breaking point. I came unglued and lost my cool. Landon had a bad day. I don't now why he was just not in a good mood. I told him no on something and of course he did not like that answer and he began to retaliate. Throwing toys, telling me no and then proceeded to hit me on the leg. I LOST it. This is only about the 1,000 time he has done this. I said that's it, I need help on how to control this child and a better discipline tactic, because what we are doing is NOT working. Does anyone elses kid do this? Does this phase past? Does it get better? I went to our local library and picked up this book our doctor recommended
I'm going to start tonight and hope I can learn something from the book. I keep thinking this to shall pass.
On a happier note saturday we were able to get an ultrasound and see our baby.
It's a picture of a picture, so not the best quality. All looks great and we could not be happier
I am 11 weeks tomorrow. This time around I feel like "things" and when I mean "things", I mean belly, boobs and butt are starting to stick out faster and larger the 2nd time around. Was it like that for anyone else on their 2nd baby?
This morning Landon came and woke me up and said "I kiss mommy" and he gave me a kiss and then he said "I kiss baby" and kissed my belly. This melted my heart with happiness, but also made me feel quilty about yesterday afternoon with my meltdown.
I cant blog without a picture of my little man who is having a better day today ;O) Even though you push ALL my buttons at the same time I LOVE you more than you will ever know
I do have to brag on him. Landon has been in underwear for 2 days and has gone pee and poo and he is telling us when he has to go. I think we are offically over pull-ups.
Only 6 more days of school till Landon and I are on summer break ;o)
Happy Mother's Day everyone! Our mother's day weekend didn't turn out the way we planned. Landon became sick yesterday afternoon and is still running a fever today. We are going to stay home from school tomorrow to give him another day of rest and to get better.
Poor guy he has not been able to keep anything down since yesterday and has only ate a banana today. Notice the throw up bucket. He has used that several times in the last 24 hours
Tylenol does a sick baby good
Since Landon has been sick, Jason and I have been taking turns going out and doing errands over the weekend.
I went to Kirkland's yesterday and found a new charger to go behind my kitchen sink. I heart Kirkland's
Then I went to Lowe's and bought a new flower for our front porch flower urn
Jason painted all our shutters
Yesterday before Landon got sick, he decorated a cake at Publix for his mommy and GG
Since Landon was still sick this morning, we stayed home from church and I cooked home made lasagna
and Jason made my mom and I a strawberry cake, my favorite. YUM!!
My mom came over and ate lunch with us
The Tylenol kicked in and Landon came out to take a picture
Then my mom and I went to get our toes done
We ended the day with more napping...
10 weeks pregnant
Even though Landon is sick I still had a great day of watching movies, eating and just being a mom. Happy Mother's Day
Sorry I have been MIA for the last few days. It seems that my "morning sickness" is at night right after dinner and I have just been to plain tired and sick to blog. We had a pretty uneventful weekend. Friday I was glued to my TV all day watching pre-coverage of the royal wedding then watching the actual wedding and all the post wedding news. Saturday Jason got up with Landon and I was able to sleep in till 9:30am. Jason did yard work and the only time I went out of the house was a quick trip to Kohls to look for new tennis shoes and a pair of shorts for Landon. Sunday only time we left the house was the grocery. So as you can tell we were pretty boring over the weekend.
I never was "sick" with Landon, never had headaches, nausea or vomit. This time around I am extremely exhausted, headaches and nausea. I did vomit once last week right before we went out to taco Tuesdays. After I did my business I felt like a new person and went on to eat 3 tacos. HAHA!!
I am 9 weeks today and so far so good. Our next doctor appointment is not till May 26Th, but I cant wait that long so were going in for a scan this weekend and letting my mom scan me so we can see the peanut.
I will probably start the weekly updates and baby bumps first of June after I hit the 12 week mark.
Sorry no pictures, just to tired to get the camera out.
Please pray for all the victims of the devastating tornado our neighboring states had last week. My grandmother just got power back yesterday after having none for 3 days. She is about 3 exits down from the Ringgold, Ga damage. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who became a victim that day.
Jason and I met while attending the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. We were married in April 2005 and had our first child, Landon, in July 2008. We live in Smyrna, TN and enjoy our lives with a energitic toddler.
