No Pictures

I am getting really pissed off at Blogger. Now it won't let me post ANY pictures. None at all. There isn't even a spot to click on to upload. I am so frustrated! There may be a new blog here in the near future....

Jude Laughing

As I got into the car yesterday, I made a grunting sound (Peyton is starting to weigh me down) and Jude started cracking up. So I continued to make the sound and he continued to laugh. I ended up pulling over on the side of the road to get it on video because it was too cute.

23 Weeks

How far along: 23 Weeks.
Total weight gain: 8lbs total, but I'll find out the new number Friday.

Maternity clothes: Yep. I'm in maternity clothes.
Sleep: Eh. Jude is waking up a few times during the night. Nothing bad, but he makes enough noise to wake me up and I have a hard time going back to sleep. Also, Peyton is  kicking and since he is so strong now, it keeps me awake as well.
Best Moment this week: Celebrating Riley's birthday, seeing a few of our friends, and Erin being home (!!!).
Movement: Yes. This baby is moving around like crazy now.
Gender: BOY!
Labor signs: Hopefully not for another 17 weeks.
Belly button: Making it's way out.
Cravings: Chocolate! Chocolate poptarts are my new thing.
What I miss: I'm already mourning my one-on-one time with Jude. Love this boy.
Stretch Marks: None.
What baby is up to: Hanging out. Growing. Moving.
What I am looking forward to this week: Our week is already full and I'm so excited with all of our play dates, but I'm really looking forward to Jude's swim lessons Saturday.


Jude has his 15 month shots tomorrow (he's a bit behind schedule because he was sick at one point and they wouldn't give him shots until he was better, now his schedule is off) and I have my 24 week appt Friday. Other than that, our month is starting to fill up with play dates, girls day outs, and birthday parties. Lots going on over here!

New Bathroom for the Boys

John and I decided the boys needed a more kid-friendly bathroom. We originally had a Moroccan theme going on from when we lived in Indy. I have been looking for months for a shower curtain I not only love, but is cheap enough. Anyway, ever since reading BabyRabies post about her shower curtain I knew I wanted it. However, Target no longer had it on their website or stores here in CA and Amazon was trying to sell a $20 curtain for $45. I was about to give up and I told John I would be getting the bathroom stuff from Target since I had giftcards to spend.
 
Sooooo, when John and I were in LA we were shopping at Target and decided to look in their bath area. SURE ENOUGH... there was my curtain!! I bought it, along with the accessories and was so excited to come home and redo the boys bathroom.

Old curtain
 New bathroom!!!



The green picture frame has 2 ultrasound pictures of Peyton and I ordered a picture of Jude for the red frame.
 
Anyway, I am super excited how it turned out and very thankful that Jill at BabyRabies has great taste. :)

Our Travels


Jude and I flew to LA a few days before John met us. Jude was wonderful on the plane rides and it was pretty uneventful (which I like).

Playing
We had such a great time seeing our families, but the part I really look forward to? Eating.
Blue Dog for brunch
We spent Christmas Eve with my dad's side of the family. As always, lots of fun and I love catching up with all of my cousins. Santa also made an appearance! Jude seemed very intrigued by him. Nana and Poppa had fun playing with him as well. :)

Christmas pj's.


We spent Christmas day with my mom's side of the family. Once again, I love catching up and seeing everyone. It's also a ton of fun because there is always alot of laughing. :) Honey and Bear enjoyed watching him play and I know miss him during the year.
Jude loves Dora.
John, Jude, and I flew to Indy to visit John's family. Jude was amazing on the flights and conked out the minute we got in the car. He was wide awake and ready to explore when he saw Grandma and Papa!!!
Jude's first snow!!! This kid loves being outside, no matter the temperature. 



Jude trying his first pickle. Not a fan.
We left Indy and flew home. It felt so good landing in CA. We spent New Years Eve just hanging out. I got a pedi and we had dinner with friends that night.

Jude ringing in the New Year at 7pm. :)


We had a really great time, but as always it's nice to be home. We have 5(!!!) boxes being shipped of just stuff we received for Christmas. Gift limits were set and ignored this year, so next year we'll have to try to nip that in the bud. We feel very blessed to not only have such wonderful families, but to have people who love Jude so very much. Baby Peyton is one lucky kid to be born into such amazing families.
 
Now it's back to our routine and play dates. I just redid the boys bathroom yesterday so I'll post pictures of that soon. Next up: getting Peyton's room ready!!
 
*I am terrible at taking pictures. Absolutely terrible. We don't have any pictures with my dads side of the family or Johns family. Thank goodness for Mom or we wouldn't have any on her side either. I'll post some of hers tomorrow, but I wish I would have put more effort into it for the other families.*
