Baby Dorey #3 {Gender Reveal}

Monday, July 17, 2017

This sweet baby has completely thrown us for a loop throughout this pregnancy. With so many new surprise symptoms we really had no idea what we were having!

But we're so excited to announce that Wyatt and Stella are getting a baby SISTER!! Yes, we're having a girl! 

We are so excited and can't wait to see the three of them together. I can only imagine the fun that Stella will have with a baby sister--give her all the accessories. And we already know how wonderful of a big brother Wyatt is!

Thank you for all of the kind words and congratulatory messages!!

22 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Size of Baby: I'm currently 22 weeks and baby weighs about 1 pound + is measuring about 11", or the size of a spaghetti squash. 

Total Weight Gain: I would say I've gained roughly 20ish pounds. I'm not exactly sure how much I weighed before, so it's hard to gauge. 

Symptoms: Feeling pretty good. Braxton hicks occasionally and some tightness in my legs. I can't see any swelling but my doc said he felt a little in my ankles, didn't seem too concerned though.  

Food Cravings/Aversions: Love some good watermelon (I was really disappointed in the last one I bought). 

Movement: Lots and lots of nudges and kicks! No one has felt anything because I basically live with a lot of impatient people. ;) 

Purchases: Haven't really bought anything recently. We're starting to plan room arrangements so I've been working on plans for future purchases. 

Best Moment of the Week: We haven't done a whole lot but I've been enjoying our time at the pool, and watching Wyatt learn to swim!

Looking Forward To: Spending the weekend with some family! And finally announcing our baby's gender!

Thomas Family Beach Vacation

Monday, July 10, 2017

A couple weeks ago we spent a week at the beach with family! We had so much fun and there are so many memories that I want to record & remember. And maybe a few pictures too.
Stella and her cousin, Aria, basically are the best of buds. Where one is, you will most definitely find the other. On one of our first evenings down on the beach the two of them took off down the beach chasing birds. They didn't have any cares except catching those birds. Thankfully Pop was willing to take off after them and corral them back. 

Stella was also not a fan of the ocean. At all. We only made her get in a couple of times because she was hot, and she screamed every time. 

On our last full day, while I was putting sunscreen on Wyatt, Stella took my wedding ring off a shelf and threw it down the outside porch. Yea, talk about a mild panic attack. I don't think she'll ever be touching it again. It took Sean and I about 30 minutes to find it in some sand downstairs.

Just like the swimming pool, Wyatt is in love with the beach. He wants to swim in the waves and dig in the sand 24/7. Oh, and eat snacks.


He also loved  to go downstairs and help with laundry. He and Aunt Iris definitely put a dent in the laundry pile.

We're so happy we got to spend the week surrounded by most of our family!
