It has been forever since I updated the blog...sorry. I am now over 15 weeks pregnant! We find out in 4 weeks what we are having and we can't wait! Our 2nd appointment was good; the heartbeat was 154 beats per minute and the baby is growing. I have started feeling flutters this past week which makes me super excited! I decided we better take a picture. I feel a lot bigger this time around but so far even with Thanksgiving and the Holidays I have only gained 2 pounds. Now that I'm in the 2nd trimester I'm feeling much better and we are having fun getting ready for Christmas! Lexie loves taking all the "balls" off the tree so I hope the tree survives.
Here I am at 15 weeks.
Lexie is now almost 16 months old! At her 15 month well check a couple weeks ago she weighed 23 lbs (48%) and is 31 inches (61%) I have a hard time believing she only grew 1/2 an inch in 3 months, but the measuring didn't go so well this time. She freaked out with the medical assistant, the pediatrician, and especially the girl who came to give shots. It was so much easier when she didn't know what was going on, but she has turned into a little smarty. Lexie jabbers all the time now and has a lot of words in her ever-growing vocabulary. Her newest favorite words at the moment are "cocka" - clock, "pemple" - temple (followed by her singing "I Love To See the Temple"), "cracka" - cracker, "kitty" (followed by "mow, mow"), "chairs" (which she loves to use to climb up to the table), and she loves the "tee" - tree.
Here she is on one of her favorite things and favorite words...stairs. She loves going to my parents house and climbing the stairs.
For Christmas, Bryan's work gave him a brand new IPOD Nano. He was super excited because there is no way we could afford to buy one right now. Well, Lexie wanted to try it out and she absolutely LOVES it. This first picture is of her making one of her silly faces. She is into making really funny faces these days and it really makes us laugh.
Here she is dancing while listening to the IPOD music, and the other picture she thinks the IPOD is a cell phone. Kids are so techno-savvy these days!
Here is Lexie helping me cook, and here she is playing the keyboard which she loves (I hope she keeps it up).
The day before Thanksgiving we met up with Kirsten, Mark, and Britton for a little visit. It was fun to see them as always! Aren't Lexie and Brit so cute!
Well, I hope to be better at updating in the coming weeks and months. I hope everyone is having a great Christmas Season. We are really trying to focus on the true meaning of Christmas this year by remembering Christ and all he has done for us, along with being more thankful for our many blessings. It is such a great time of year and we are grateful for all of our friends and family and all you do for us. We love you!
