The last post was shortly after I found out I am pregnant. Sheesh. I'm 16 weeks pregnant now! It certainly is going by quickly. I had a lot of morning sickness (and the flu, which really didn't help) in the beginning. I was lucky if I could make it through a day without being sick or taking a nap. I didn't have any morning sickness - at all!- with Carlie or Jack. This took me completely by surprise! I've been having near-daily migraines or headaches, too. Not fun. It can get pretty difficult to function and lead a normal life. I'm trying not to complain and just cope with the pain.
Okay, no more complaints or excuses... on to the real blog post! :)
Carlie and I had a wonderful weekend. We set aside a few hours Saturday just for us girls. We spent all our time here in town. Lunch across the road at a sweet little family-style restaurant where we laughed and took pictures of each other. Then we went to the resale boutique in the same plaza to search out some treasures. We found a cute sundress for Carlie, a maternity tank top for me (in a beautiful blue!) and dress for her babydoll. We spent $6. Not bad! At home we painted our fingernails (I think I do this 2 times a year...maybe). Carlie picked out blue for me to cover up the nasty bruise under my thumbnail from when I slammed by thumb in the car door last week. After a batch of our from-scratch brownies, our day was complete!
|My Carlie-girl! I cannot believe she's 7 and so grown up. (she turned 7 last month. I didn't blog about that either...)|
|Me - 4 months pregnant and looking tired. I'm wearing a dress because she insisted we dress up for our afternoon.|
|We made these adorable little birds Sunday. Carlie had a lot of fun learning to sew!|
You can find the tutorial for the little birdies here. While you are there, check out Em's classes and etsy page (if it's not open right now, it will be soon).
I'm pretty sure I'll actually blog again soon because my ultrasound is in 2 weeks! Hoping the baby cooperates so we can find out if we're having another boy or girl!!! :)
