Away we go

Apparently I'm going to skip over my 24 week update and slide right into week 26... Later this week ;)

Brynna and I left this morning with my folks to their house for a visit. Batmans staying home again this time since he brings home the bacon. I'm going to TRY and post a few updates while we are away. So keep your eyes peeled.

And now I need to stop for a potty break.

Starting to get frustrated

The search for the perfect name for little man continues... Endlessly it seems.

We have a short list, but nothing either of us really likes. And of course we can't agree on anything we both like.

I know we do have time, but right now it feels like our kids going to be nameless. :-/

Excuse #1,785 for not blogging

We are dealing with lots of sickness over here, which is why I've been a bit MIA... First, B came down with this nasty cold, then Batman and I picked it up. I've been trying to read and comment, but have had little energy to put up my own posts.

Excuse us, while we wallow in our misery.

24 week update coming soon... although now it's going to be late. And I was doing so well ;-) 

Hope everyone is NOT as sick as we are.

Brynna pics

Here's a few pics from the last week for my memory banks :)

 Helping Dad blow out the candles!
A fun new "cup" to drink from

 Best smile I could get... she had to show off her shirt to Nana and Papa (homemade... she was so proud)
Licking the frosting spoon (please diregard the magnet in the background... that's most definitely Batman's addition to our fridge)

Cheese face!

Having fun at the park

Playing "her" games

22 weeks

Did I actually make it on time this time? Well, barely, but I'll take it ;-)

So here's the latest pic... please excuse the hat and lack of makeup look:
I forgot to do a bare belly one, but I'll try for the next update ;)
Belly #2
Belly #1

Pregnancy HighlightsHow Far Along: 22 weeks

Size of baby: Baby #2 is about 11 inlong (about the size of a spaghetti squash) and weighs about 1 lb.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: By my scale +12 so far... I hope to keep up this only 4 lbs a month weight gain... and my butt needs to not get ANY bigger!

Clothes: Still maternity.

Gender: Still Team BLUE!

Movement: More and more. I still have my small moments of panic when I think he should be moving around and he's not, but I'm trying to let. it. go.

Sleep: still unisom... still every night...

What I miss: Being able to shave *ahem* down below without having to do some pretty amazing shower acrobatics. I have a feeling it's going to be all by "feel" from her on out... yikes!

Cravings: Chinese food, Mexican food, Thai food, Teryaki, pretty much anything other than what I am eating which is lots of veggies and rice and beans ;-)

Symptoms: Big belly, movement, etc. 

Moment this week: I am starting to feel him move more at the top of my uterus which is between my belly button and my ribs. Kind of exciting! I have been able to feel him on the outside for a couple weeks now, but just like B, he's been kind of shy once Batman tries to feel him. The little stinker! Hopefully, he will start performing for Daddy soon too!

What I'm looking forward to: Next Dr appt so I can hear this little man again :)

Milestones: None I can think of? Making it through another week?

Head on over

In my effort to support batman's new blog, here's the obligatory reminder to go read it for this week's weigh in and update. And by obligatory I do mean that I truly wish you would hop over there. Because he is pretty witty ;) (Fatman-fit.blogspot.com) enjoy the read! :)

50 Shades...

First of all, what do you think of the new look? It's still in progress, but I'm getting there :)

Second, have you succumbed to the latest "it" books to read? Thanks to a wonderful fellow blogger, I've been a terrible mom the last few days (allowing my child to watch WAY more TV than normal), engrossing myself in all things Grey.

Oh my.

While the writing is completely terrible, I do like a good piece of trash once in a while. And to say it has added to my already overactive libido is an understatement.

If you haven't read it yet, and like a good erotic, trashy, romance novel once in a while, the trilogy is a good read (although I've heard about lots of disappointment with book 3... I'm only in the middle of book 2). I know some people can't get over the bad writing, but it's really worth a look.

I'd recommend it to anyone needing a love affair with fiction and romance ;-)

As you can see, it's a work in progress.

I'm totally not savvy when it comes to doing my own templates and such. Plus I'm kind of on a strict (zero dinero) budget. Which means, as much as I wish I could, I can't actually just PAY someone to do all this for me ;-)

I'll be googling "how to's" until I get it right though.

Please bear with the renovations over here.
