33 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Monday, September 25, 2017

It's been a bit since I've done an update but things are moving along pretty smoothly so there hasn't been much to share. This pictures is actually about 2 weeks old but it's still pretty accurate. ;) 

Size of Baby: I'm currently 33 weeks and our baby girl weighs about 4 pounds + is measuring about 17", or the size of a pineapple. 

Total Weight Gain: I've gained around 30 pounds. I'm right at the weight I was when I delivered Wyatt + Stella...and I have roughly 7 weeks to go. But I do know that I weighed more when I got pregnant this time around, so I'm trying to factor that in and not get discouraged. Also, my weight gain has slowed substantially in the third trimester. 

Symptoms: Hip pain, back pain, etc, etc... And lots of braxton hicks. Getting dressed is my least favorite activity of everyday. And praying the weather cools off soon so I can at least wear jeans/leggings comfortably again. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: Haven't really craved too much. With my growing belly I've had much less of an appetite. 

Movement: All the time. She's really good at elbowing and kneeing my too, which can cause me to yell "ouch". 

Purchases: Haven't really bought anything recently but I have a few things on my list to purchase in October. 

Best Moment of the Week: We had a great weekend visiting my dad's family and spending some down time on the farm.

Looking Forward To: My baby shower that a few friends are hosting this coming weekend! Which also means my mom is coming for a visit too!

Pre-School Fair Field Trip

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Every year Wyatt and Stella's school has a field trip to the fair to see all of the farm animals on display. This was Wyatt's 3rd year to visit and Stella's first (besides when she was a baby), and it was the BEST visit yet (minus the meltdown Wyatt had when he couldn't find his BFF)!!

They were all about the animals, especially Stella, who I am pretty certain would have sat and talked to every.single.one.

We finished up the trip with a walk through the fair to check out the rides...and snacks, of course. Can't believe this is Wyatt's last year to attend with FUMC.

Welcome to our Playhouse

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

If you've been following this blog for any amount of time then you are probably aware that in the last year "we" (meaning Sean) constructed a new addition in our backyard. I've been wanting to share it with you all for, well, months. But somewhere along the way I got pregnant and lost all motivation and track of anything/everything.

So, here she is, our playhouse!!

The entire process started last November (2016). The kids and I went away for a weekend and came home to a concrete slab and the beginnings of a playhouse. And over the course of the next several months (and through snow, wind, & rain) it continued to grow. 

And sometime around the middle of May she was finally complete! 
There are still a few things we'd like to do, like install lights, but it is fun + functional!

First Day 2017

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

The day is finally here!! 
The day I wait for all summer long and then when it finally arrives, 
I'm suddenly not so ready!

It's Wyatt's fourth and final year at FUMC and I'm kind of ball of emotions about it all. 
I know he's going to have the best year and he was so ready! He walked right in, put his things away, and sat down with his friends ready to learn. 

Stella, I'm trying to pretend she's not my little baby anymore. She asked if I was going to stay at school with her, but did okay after giving "Claire baby" a kiss. 

True depiction of feelings...

It's going to be a great year for these two,
and I'm so excited to see how much they learn and grow!
