Baby Bump #2 {Week 8}

So there is no picture. I have been totally slacking and didn't do a post last week or take any pictures. I will hopefully do so next week. There is no bump so you aren't missing out.

Baby #2 Growth: According to one app the baby is the size of a kidney bean and has begun to have webbed fingers and toes! And according to the other app it is the size of a raspberry which I have been eating a lot of.

Feeling: Tired and a little scared. I have been super sick and tired and I keep getting this fear that I am going to have twins. But it is probably me just worrying too much. As my husband keeps saying, "You think too much." I mean I will love my twins if we have some but it is so scary. It seems that it is always hard to carry twins for as long as they need and I am so scared to have preemies. But I know the Lord will bless us with what ever children or child is right for us.

Symptoms: Major morning sickness and I have been so tired that I sleep whenever my husband is home to watch E. I have been peeing a lot but that's not unusual. I am so looking forward to the morning sickness and tiredness to go away but I could only be half way through it.

Cravings: I still haven't had any weird ones but when I am craving something or any food item sounds good I go for it because most things do not sound good.

Weight Gain: I still haven't really gained anything. With not eating very much it makes it pretty hard to. But I think I am up a pound so that's good.

Exercises: Last week there was no exercising for me. And it is still kind of tough but I don't want to get out of exercising it makes me feel so good and I know it will help with my natural water birth. So I have been taking it slow and steady.

Little Happenings {Sept. #2}

This past week has been up and down. I have been feeling like crap and this last Saturday was one of the worst days we have had in a long time. Eli and I spent most of the day crying and throwing tantrums. Sigh I am so glad that day is over. 

Here are some of the good times! 
Eli has been going to sleep with out nursing and been sleeping through the night from 8pm to 6 or 7 am. Makes for a much happier mom. Although I am still waking up in the night because I have achy hips and back. But it has been great.  I have been missing nursing my little man but it also feels so nice to have that part of my body back for a little while anyways. And my body feels so much better not having to make all the milk and use all my calories.

My child looks like a little boy in this picture...ridiculous.  This boy loves applesauce these days. He eats at least 2 a day if not twice that.

That messy face makes me so darn happy. Although the sticky mess that he trails all over the house I doesn't make me very happy. 

We went to the Utah State Fair!! It was so much fun! We all had so much fun seeing the animals!
 One farmer even let the kids pet one of his cows! Eli wouldn't touch it but it was still fun!

 I had never seen a goat like this before.... They have super tiny ears.... They looked so weird.

The goats were Eli's favorites!  Mine too. There were lots of them hitched on the outside of the fences so you could pet them. 
 And there were some cute baby goats!!



 Those little piglets were going crazy nursing. There were lots of school kids there and the boys were so grossed out and shocked by the pigs boobies....made me laugh
I thought it was super cool and natural to see!

 Eli was rather shocked by this turkey as you can see by the look on his face.

 This sculpture is made out of butter..... crazy weird 

 Eli got to be a farmer for a little while and had lots of fun. He got to milk  a fake cow and plant seeds and harvest fruit. He also got to ride a tractor and brush a fake sheep.

 At the end he got paid a dollar and was able to buy an apple!

 Eli also got a balloon sword! He loved it but it didn't last too long. 

Sorry the video isn't really in focus.

Until next time!!

P.S. There will be a couple of giveaways coming soon!!!
