goodbye 2017!

2017 was such a wonderful year!!!!

my most favorite part was having sweet little emmett join our family. 
2017 will always mark one of my favorite years cause of that little one. 
we're all pretty smitten over him. 

lots of fun memories to look back on this year as well. 
being pregnant with precious emmett, lots of fun camping trips, 
taking andrew to lagoon, planting flowers, uncle luckey going on a mission
 and many more fun memories. 

another big thing that happened this year was we started two businesses!

It has been such a fun ride with those two businesses this year.
and we're so thankful to be able to have those two businesses! 

I can't wait to see what 2018 brings to our little family! 
cheers to a new year!!!!!!

my little andrew

we are coming up to the end of my pregnancy and i just honestly can't believe it. 
i'm so mixed emotions! 
scared, excited, nervous, overwhelmed. 
I just look at little andrew and think how is he not going to be my little baby anymore? 
don't get my wrong he will always be my baby but he will be the big brother. 
like what! 
being a mom has made me the happiest. 
I'm so grateful to spend my days with my little one. 
and to think i'm going to have TWO is mind blowing. 
I can't wait to watch andrew as a big brother. 
i'm sure he's going to maul the baby. ha ha 
hopefully all with love!! 
andrew is at such a fun stage right now. 
He's full of words and songs and sass and everything. 
sometimes i'm like where did he learn to say that or how did he know how to do that?
He's growing up and I love the stage he's in but also want my baby to stay a baby! 
There is so many times brandon and i will look at each other when andrew is talking and just be like 
oh my goodness he's the cutest thing or how is he so sassy? ha ha 
i'm a proud mama of this one. 
andrew i love you and thanks for being my baby!

gibsons green acre farm!

coupe weekends ago we went to gibsons green acre farm! 
it was so so so much fun! 
andrew had the best day!!! 
They had so much fun things to do and it wasn't just fun for the kids but adults too! 
I will say i'm really excited to not be pregnant next fall so i can do more stuff with andrew. 
I'm ready to be the fun parent instead of the one watching! ha ha 
I did go down the slide and who knows if that was a good idea or not but it was fun! 
We made a video and seriously watch it! ha ha 
SO many good things on that video like when we got there first and andrew went down the slide head first by himself and wasn't even scared! ha ha 
or when we went into the corn maze 
and andrew thought all we were doing is finding corn and he got one! ha ha 
or at the end of the video when i started to turn down the slide 
and i was fixing myself and look like a total idiot! ha ha  
videos and more pictures below! 
^^enjoy the video!^^
^^cutest little fella!^^
^^this is when andew went down the slide and brandon jumped after him!^^
^^trying to put myself into labor!^^
^^love my little man!^^
^^he loved jumping! It's so fun to see him having the best time!^^
^^anytime andrew does something challenging his tongue is out. ha ha!^^
brandon was so worried about me going down the slide. 
please notice his protective hand making sure i'm okay instead of making sure andrew goes down okay. ha ha gotta love him!!!

but i just wanted to do a quick post about it. 
I'll be honest i had no idea how old i was turning for awhile and two minutes before i started
this post i texted my husband and said did i turn 24 or 25 this year? 
ha ha guys mom brain is real. 
anyways it was a lovely day! 
we kept it on the chill side and thats because that night of my birthday i had to go shoot a wedding. 
We started the day off with my favorite breakfast scones and opened presents. 
andrew was so fun this year! 
he helped opened every present, sang happy birthday mom so cute and proud 
and just really loved the day. he gets his birthday loving from me! ha ha 
we then went to smith and edwards and andrew LOVED that store. 
wanted every tractor in sight. and then we went to lunch! 
it was a good day spent with my loves and my parents. 
cheers to another year!!!

35 Weeks with baby number 2!

How far along are you? 35 Weeks! 
Gender? BOY! 
How big is baby? 19-22in, 5.5lbs
Maternity Clothes? Yes oh yes. I have like 2 pants and 4 shirts I live in.
 ha ha everything else doesn't fit!
Movement? Yes!! I keep thinking he's going to kick himself out of there. 
His little kicks are so so strong! 
Weight Gain? For sure. I don't know the exact amount but i'm right on track! I weigh 139!
Food Cravings? Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. ha ha 
Food aversions? nope and thank heavens! I love my food! 
Sleep? Sadly no. Between being uncomfortable, having so many thoughts about the baby, having to use the bathroom and super thirsty in the night, I get like no sleep. 
But i'm looking at the positve that its preparing me for the newborn nighttime feedings. 
Labor Signs? No! I don't want any yet but come middle of october bring them on! ha
Belly button in or out? totally out. 
Some happy moments? Talking to my belly and feeling his strong kicks. 
and andrew saying hi baby brother, or i feel the baby or him saying, its my baby! ha ha
He's so excited, even though i don't really think he knows whats going on. ha!! 
Things to remember? The line on my belly finally appeared, the back pain is real right now and that he loves to push right side of my ribs and dilated to a two.
What am i looking forward to? Honestly not being fat and tired. 
but mostly holding a new baby again and seeing andrew as a big brother. 
goodness so many emotions.
almost to the finish line!!!!!!! cheers to a couple more weeks!
35 weeks with andrew can be found HERE
can't wait to hold you little one!!

we went to lagoon for brandon's work couple weekends ago and it was so much fun! 
I wasn't able to ride any of the rides besides the carousel and the train but it was still a good time. 
andrew was really hesitant at first but than LOVED all the rides. 
it was priceless watching his face. 
Brandon and i were talking and you know you're a parent when you'd rather watch your kid
having fun vs you going and having fun. 
walking around lagoon wore me out like crazy but it was a great time! 
we made a little a video and 
i'm so glad we did to always remember how he was at his first time at lagoon! 
video below! 

^^he wouldn't ride the little boats at first but got on these airplanes like he wasn't scared at all! 
it was so funny cause they're more extreme than the little boats! ha^^
^^he was in total heaven!^^
^^the happiest little boy flying a helicopter!^^
^^he did so good turning all the wheels each time there was a turn!^^
^^love my little andrew!^^
^^in the video it shows his face as the carousel takes off and he wasn't sure about it. 
so funny and cute!^^
^^it was fun to see him on the whales cause i have a memory of riding those!^^
such a good time! 
can't wait to go again when i'm not pregnant and ride some rides with him!
