More News!

So my last post briefly updated y'all on the craziness of life but we have more craziness ahead as...


We are beyond thrilled to be expanding our family and we're actually 18 weeks along at this point! Shows how often I post! HA! 

To make life more exciting...


We're due in January and so far this pregnancy has been much like the last...smooth and staying small (people don't believe I'm 18 weeks at all). I was SUPER "blah" the first trimester...meaning, I just felt crummy all the time...so not only fighting exhaustion but little appetite most of the day. Once we hit 2nd trimester my body jumped back into energy momma mode and hungry momma mode too! O yeah and we moved in July so that was some fun added stress, but so grateful to God for the fact that we are living in Houston and much closer to family now.

This summer has flown by and we are just about to celebrate our sweet girl's 2nd birthday (WHAT?!?!!) on Sunday. I cannot believe it! So that's our big news for now and here's some great pics for y'all to enjoy!

Park fun!

Tire swing fun at the great-grandparents'!

Mommy and Sammi on the 4th!

First pool experience! She LOVED it!

Workshop fun with daddy and great-grandpa!

Lazy day with mom (not the best pic of me but I love any cuddle time I get!)

Cousin's b-day party! She rode on a horse!
That's it for now everybody! Thanks for catching up! I'll be back soon for bump updates!

Update time!

O my goodness! It has been beyond too long...in fact, I wrote this post back in May and never published it! Life with a baby (who's now a toddler seems to get crazier by the minute) and so much has changed in the last year that I felt the need to update! Also I swear I'm going to get better at posting more often!
So let's see...
Since my last post, I no longer work full time away from home and my sweet girl, my husband got accepted into an amazing engineering program, I got into grad school, AND our sweet girl turned 1!!
It was almost this time last year that an amazing opportunity fell into our laps that changed so much for us. To keep it brief (because I will elaborate in another post), this opportunity helped me lose that last 5 lbs of baby weight, lose 10 inches over my body in 3 weeks, give me amazing energy, and most importantly...bring me home from my full-time underpaid job to work from home and spend my days with our baby! 
My husband started in an engineering program at that same time I started grad school, so we've both finished an intense year of school and did great! On to summer school for me! 'Cuz who needs a break, really?
Our baby not only turned 1, but it VERY quickly approaching 2! She does SO MUCH  now! Walks, talks (still limited words), signs the word "more", LOVES Frozen, and has decided her favorite food is donuts. She has the sweetest little heart! Loves to help mommy with anything and is incredibly fearless...I'm talking climbing, jumping, etc. 
Us back in November!
