Merry Christmas Eve and 33 weeks!

Tonight we enjoyed the Christmas Eve service at our church.  Well, sadly, I don't know if "enjoyed" is the right word.  It was definitely not their best service.  Oh well, we enjoyed family time and celebrating Christ's birth.

Here's our little Christmas angel this year! She's so cute all dressed up for Christmas, and so happy to go over to Great-Grandma's and open presents!

Here I am at 33 weeks pregnant today!



Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 33 Weeks
Size of baby: weighs almost 4 lbs, as much as a pineapple
Total Weight Gain/Loss: lost another 5 lbs, so a total gain of only 3lbs! 
Maternity Clothes: pants definitely!
Gender: It's another GiRl!
Movement: all over the place, lots of hiccups lately and jabs on my right side
Sleep: I need more. 
What I miss: my back not hurting!

My Goodness! She's Cute!

Here's Hayden's new Tinkerbell chair! She loves it but it still doesn't take the place of her bouncer chair because it doesn't lay back like she likes.  She's so cute though!

17 months



Hayden Isabella,
You are 17 months now! You are so beautiful! I love you more and more everyday! You are definitely a toddler now! You run around like crazy, love to get into things you shouldn't, and you have some attitude sometimes! You are so funny! You're not a very good eater right now, and sometimes we worry about you not wanting to eat anything.  You love your milk and we are STILL trying to get you off of drinking it only from a bottle! You "talk" a lot but don't really have too many real words that you say.  You sign a lot now though! You can sign: strawberry, grapes, apple, more, all done, please, milk, and I think there's more, but that's all I can think of at the time.  You know exactly what you're doing when you say "uh oh" though! You weigh 22 lbs still and some ounces but Daddy forgot when you went to the doctor.  You had a pretty bad rash on your tummy and we're still not sure where it came from but it took about a week to go away.  You love to play outside and you love when Grandma comes over! You wear 12-18 month clothes and size 4-5 shoes.  You're in a size 3-4 diaper.  You are such a doll and love to give kisses all of the time! 
I love you so much! 
Love, 
Mommy


At our neighborhood park!

Loving the slide!


She's found out how to climb onto our bed and she loves to sit at the edge, usually with her legs tucked between the footboard and the mattress.  (This morning watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.)

Menu Planning Saturday

We usually go grocery shopping over the weekend, so I'm going to try to menu plan.  It's hard for me to keep to it though, but I'm going to try!

Sunday: Potato Leek Soup  Because Vickie's was so good!
Monday: Ranch Tetrazzini
Tuesday: Broccoli Rice and Chicken
Wednesday: Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
Thursday: Dinner at Grandmas
Friday: Left overs
Saturday: Dinner out

Here's hoping it works out! Wednesday may get postponed because I need to find someone to watch Hayden in the afternoon.  Thus, I'd probably have dinner with Grandma or Dad, whoever can watch her.

This is my special 100th post!! I've been waiting to make this special! So, Hayden's first birthday was on Father's Day, June 20, 2010! We started the day off with her presents, then headed to church. After church, we met my mom and grandma at Beyond Bread for lunch.


Presents! No, we didn't wrap them... oh well...
This is her new Cabbage Patch baby. Get this, her name is Eulalia Lakita. Really, Cabbage Patch, really?
Hayden got Creme Brulee! She loved it!
Happy Birthday girl!
Hey Grandma! What'd you bring me?!
A Corn Popper!
Ooo! And cute clothes!
Yay!!!!
With Mommy and Daddy on her birthday!

Oh and one more treat! Her shirt says "Guess what a little birdie told me..."
"I'm going to be a big sister!"


It's true! Here's number 2! Due February 11, 2011!

The doctor said it was safe to announce! We announced it officially at Hayden's birthday party yesterday with the little birdie shirt! You should have seen some of those shocked faces!
