12 Weeks

Today I am 12 weeks along with our third sweet baby. 

We hadn't said a word to them about having another baby...and then at 7 weeks I had a bad morning. Munch decided I was very sick and needed to go to the doctor ASAP. Luckily, my first appointment was scheduled for that day. Munch was horrified during the sono and wanted to know if that was what was "going to make Mama dead". Poor sweet kiddo. Both boys were completely dumbfounded when we told them, that Mama was fine and we were going to have another baby. A million and one questions followed. They love looking at pictures of the baby's development every week and are fascinated by the size. 

I had this plan in my head that we would keep it a secret until I was out of the first trimester. Munch and Nox had totally different ideas. They announced it to my mother shortly after my confirmation sono and then started telling perfect strangers. So we did a surprise announcement at Munch's Halloween Birthday Party, a couple weeks ago. It worked out brilliantly. I love seeing everyone's faces when they realized exactly what my shirt meant. 
I am insanely tired, but not terribly sick which is awesome. 

We heard the baby's heartbeat the other day. The doctor made sure that the boys got a good listen. I WISH I had gotten a picture of their jaws dropping. That sound is so wonderful and reassuring, might hit my top 10 list of sounds I love. I'm pretty sure the boys liked it almost as much as I did.

Project Life: Week 7

A little late on my posting today, but I got it up!  I really should starting sharing two weeks at a time again, but whatever works right?

page one:
 The tooth themed goodies are from a freebie digi kit I got a while back Toothless, by Brine Designs.
Pretty normal week, Nox and I went to the dentist, the garbage man came, my sister surprised us with a visit. My fur babies looked cute. Ya know...the norm. :o)

page two:
Mostly used blues and reds on this page. The Valentine's card and heart card are from Studio Calico from a mixed lot I bought. We had a Valentine's party at the boy's class, date day that Saturday and poor sick boys by Sunday. I really kinda love how this page turned out.

Scrappy Sunday

Working on a little catch up with photos with PL and working in some Digi scrapping while I'm at it. I'm currently trying to finish up printing for June (I am WAY far behind, but totally okay with it, for the moment.)

This picture was taken on Father's Day and I had completely forgotten about it. Love how handsome my Munch is.

Project Life: Week 6

Went with an orange and blue theme for this week. Really love how it turned out. 
The smile card is from a studio calico card set I got a while back. It was one of those cards I had been holding onto and finally used it. The B&W shot is one of my favorites of Nox and just a happy accident. He ran into the shot while I was trying to get a PL layout photographed. :o) I also included my reason for doing PL. Love it when my kiddos enjoy the albums. 

insert side one:
This is a little blurb about a magazine interview I did regarding my weight loss. (If you are interested you can read my favorite post about my journey: HERE). I am still sure the interview happened with someone else and I was just lucky enough to listen in....

insert side two:
We didn't do anything special this year, but we always try to do something for Chinese New Year. I added a little digi page about our evening. 

page two:
This spread is a We R Memory Keepers protector. It fits 4x4 pictures which is awesome for instagrams. I kinda love it. Makes it so much easier. We had a pretty normal week so it was nice to be able to put it together quickly.

Project Life: Week 5

I've decided to go ahead and stop sharing my 2012 that we are coming near the end of 2013.

I previously shared weeks 1-4, so here is week 5! I went with a green and blue theme for the week. 
Forgive the pictures. Cell phone isn't the best, but it was quick and easy :o)
 It was an easy, low activity week for us. Munch had a teeth cleaning and we hung out at home building legos and snuggling our pup. I don't add current events that often in my PL album, but Pope Benedict resigning was worth a mention. 

Page Two:
My husband very kindly gave me a weekend all to myself. He took the boys out to his father's land and I stayed home. I have a spot open for him to journal, but forgot to leave a space for me to talk about the weekend! I might have to find a spot. It was just a wonderful gift to have alone time. I love my family, but I cherish moments I have to myself at home too. I'm so lucky to have a husband that understands that and works with me when I need it.

Currently 10.5.2013

Watching: Bomb Girls on Netflix - It's about the women who built bombs during WWII. Really loving it.

Reading: Lots of emails and blogs...trying to catch up on some, deciding to unsubscribe on others. I've just got WAY too much on my plate.

Listening: The Greatest Hits of the Forties radio on Spotify. Forties music never fails to make me smile.

Making: My Halloween costume. Something simple but fun :o)

Feeling: Meh. Been sick, slowly beginning to feel better.

Planning: Munch's FIFTH birthday party. He had a Halloween/costume party last year and wants to keep up the tradition. I have GOT to start decorating this weekend!

Loving: The weather very slowly beginning to feel like fall and pumpkins everywhere. I LOVE October.
