Wowzers! I can't believe it's almost April and I haven't updated this blog since January! I have a very good excuse. I've spent the past three months in a constant state of nausea, exhaustion, and much of it with my head in either the toilet or a plastic bag. Yup, Joe and I did it again! We're expecting baby #2 on October 1! I can't believe I haven't posted this yet as it's kind of only the second biggest deal ever in our lives! Anyway, I'm please to announce that I'm already starting to feel human again. I'm about 13 weeks along so this is very good news. With Rosemary I was sick until 20 weeks. The last time I threw up with her was actually the morning of my 20 week ultrasound when we found out that our little girl was going to be, well, a little girl! Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. I am convinced this baby is going to be a super good sleeper and not experience a bit of colic. Hopefully the fact that I'm barely out of my first trimester and already able to brush my teeth without, well, you know, is just one sign that things are going to go easy this time!
So I'm going to try my best to catch up on the happenings of the past 2 months. I'll focus on February in this post.
Let's start with Valentine's Day. As a special treat, my playgroup made Valentine's for the residents of a local nursing home and then a few of us took our kids to deliver them in person. It was surprisingly an incredibly fun time for both the kids and the residents! I didn't get that many good pictures, but here's one that shows some of the excitement. I swear the lady sitting down had to be part of A League of Their Own. She was playing baseball with that pool noodle and even fencing with one of the little boys in our group! She was a trip!
Back home on Valentine's Day I was quite under the weather thanks to Baby #2 so we had a quiet day at home and then went to Five Guys for lunch. Here are a couple pictures of Rosemary and daddy in their hats.
I took Rosemary for her first trip to Chuck E. Cheese in February. It was way more fun than I was expecting! I didn't think she'd really enjoy it yet but she surprised me and had a great time! Here she is saying "Cheese!" with Chuck E. himself:
I also had the idea to do a make your own cape and tutu Moms Night In with the playgroup. Here's my first attempt at making a no-sew cape. Not too bad, but I wish I had gotten pictures of the capes the other moms made. WOW! They put my simple little red satin to shame! I think Rosemary is some sort of super heroine here. Armed with her paint roller.
