Cadens 2nd birthday

The invitation
The cake which I spent hours on. Its not as good as anything Amanda makes, but I was pretty happy with it.

The birthday boy, helping carry his presents

Opening up the coolest present. A t-ball set with a bat and ball. I'm excited for him to learn to play. Thanks Uncle Rick & Auntie Amy. He also got a tractor from Uncle Randy, and sand box toys from Sarah.
I'll hopefully have more pics eventually. My mom did most of the picture taking so I have to get her pics.

16 weeks

How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 3 lb gain
Maternity clothes? Not yet. Almost wore a maternity shirt the other day but I stopped myself.
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: not needed as much. I don’t feel the need to nap all the time. Movement: Yup. I know I felt if. I wasn’t believing myself just because it felt to early. But I know for sure I’ve been feeling baby. Food cravings: salad…lots of salad. With tomatoes, cucumbers and either creamy cucumber or raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Gender: not a clue
Labor Signs: heck no
Belly Button in or out? It won’t be long till its out. Contemplating taking out my belly ring already. What I miss: going for a walk around the village without feeling winded…lol
What I am looking forward to: Being pregnant with my friend, Jodi. Weekly Wisdom: There’s something so special about hearing the heartbeat for the first time. Makes it feel so real. Milestones: Put away 1 pair of jeans that are a little tight. The others still fit.

And here's a pic of my baby, being just like Mommy

I've been busy. Overwhelmingly busy. Catered the last 2 weekends. Plus I had to get ready for Cadens birthday party which was yesterday (I'll write about that and post pics on Wednesday), and trying to get yard work done, and clean my house. We've really been enjoying the outdoors. Caden loves loves loves it outside, and is happy to be out there, playing by himself, or with Maddy, for hours. Its great. It allows me to get the laundry hung, or rake leaves, or trim raspberry bushes, etc. I'm glad I have a pretty independent kid.
Pregnancy wise, I'm doing really good. No nausea anymore which I'm so thankful for. Slowly growing. I had my first appointment on Friday. Got to hear the babes heartbeat. Wow, that just makes it feel so real. I love it. My bp was good.
That'll be all for now. Come back Wednesday to read and see all of Cadens 2nd birthday. (Can't believe he's 2)

Excuse the quality of the picture. My camera wasn't liking the idea of focusing.

Busy Busy

Once again, I have to apologize to you for not being a loyal blogger. What I usually do is write my posts at home, then save it to my USB stick and take that to work to post it to my blog. I’ve haven’t been finding or taking the time to do that lately.

I am 3 months preggers today. 13.5 weeks. Feeling pretty good for the most part other than the odd day where I’m nauseous. Can’t believe how much quicker I’m showing this time around. With Caden, you could barely tell at 4 months. I’m only 3, but look bigger than last time at 4. It’s crazy. My tiredness is also not as severe. Up until 2 weeks ago, I could nap both times with Caden, and then sometimes when Rob got home, he’d take Caden and I’d nod off for a few minutes. It was ridiculous. Now the only reason I’m tired is because I can’t get my son to sleep past 6:15am. I don’t know what to do. Nothing helps. His room is dark, he goes to bed late or he goes to bed early. He has 1 nap. He has 2 naps. No difference. I had a minor break down yesterday morning. Doesn’t help that I’ve been extra emotional these last few months. Poor boy didn’t know what to do with a crying Mommy. But I got over it. And it actually felt good to let it out.

This past weekend I went to Grand Forks with my Mom and Sil. We had so much fun. I found all but 1 thing on my list. Came home with 2 pairs of maternity capris, (the sexy kind where the top comes up and over your tummy) 1 pair of maternity shorts, 1 dress, 8 tops (2 which are maternity), 3 pairs of earrings and 2 pairs of shoes. Caden got 10 shirts, 5 pairs of shorts, trunks, 2 pairs of sandals, a backpack and gitch. It was definitely a productive, and expensive, weekend. We enjoyed our time at the hotel, had great food, and had a date with Matthew McCoughnahey. Mmm, Mmm good. That is one delicious man.

Other than that, we’ve been busy playing outside. Caden could literally live outside. He’s been playing so well with Maddy, the neighbour girl. (My friend Joders oldest daughter) It’s so cute to watch them. They don’t fight, they just play. Even helping each other out if need be. But, throw the younger girl in the mix and all goes down hill. She doesn’t play well with them, and Caden doesn’t like her being around. She’s only 6 months younger than Caden, where as Maddy is 1 ½ years older, but I think he likes playing with someone older.

I can hardly wait to get my garden going. I’ve been doing a lot of raking and burning leaves, which believe it or not, I actually enjoy. If only I had more time. I’ve been considering the option of only working 1 day a week, instead of the 2 I do now, for summer. It’s so hard coming to work when I know it’s going to be a beautiful day. I want to be outside at home, working on my yard. We’ll see what my dad thinks of that option. Not sure it’ll go over too well…lol.

Well, I think that pretty much catches you all up on things. Oh, next week Tuesday I have Cadens specialist appointment in Winnipeg. Hopefully we’ll figure out what to do about Cadens feet. And I pray it won’t be something too serious.
I will post a Prego pic soon, I promise.
