New Years 2011

Their girls: Brianna, Mia & Kaitlyn

Dani, just love her!

Ty shakin' his money maker!

We spent New Years with our good friends Dani & Leonard Alvarado & their girls. We had a blast! We had a huge sit down turkey dinner and then tons of games. Zoe did great & went to bed about 9.

Reading & Growing

2 months ago, I started having Zoe watch 'Your Baby Can Read' DVD's. She seems to love them. It took me a while to be consistent with it, but once I did it's been great. I sit her down every morning while I make breakfast and most of the time she doesn't move. She has already learned to clap and wave. It is exciting to watch her learn. :) She also loves Strawberry Shortcake! haha. I think she's seem in about 10 times.

This little boy is moving around so much, he is up in my ribs a lot. Mama is definitely starting to get tired. I just hit my 3rd trimester & I'm starting to feel it. It doesn't help that I have a UTI and a sinus infection. Thank goodness for Anti-biotics.

These past few weeks I have noticed that I've been feeling a bit sad that Zoe isn't going to be the baby anymore. I didn't know how being pregnant this fast would affect me. I snuggle with her longer than normal & try and spend as much quality time with her as possible. I have also become much more patient with her. Going from 1 to 2 babies is going to be a big change, I know. Although I love my babies, Ty and I will definitely be more careful this time when it comes to birth control! haha

Where has the time gone?

It feels like this month is already starting to go fast. I am 26 weeks pregnant and next week I'll be in my 3rd and final trimester. This pregnancy has definitely kicked my butt! It is nice that it's going by fast!! I am loving the age Zoe is at. She is exploring & into everything, but it's fun to watch her learn and grow. She has been standing up by herself since she was about 9 months and I can tell she wants to walk, but she's just not quite ready.

Ty has been so busy with work. He has made some great new year's resolutions and has been doing awesome at following through with them. With sales, you have to be motivated to make money because you are pretty much your own boss. He doesn't have anyone telling him he needs to go out and work (well except me) haha! This second baby has definitely lit a fire under his butt and he has been doing an amazing job at making sure we will be prepared for it.

I have really been trying to be positive throughout this pregnancy although it was unplanned and very fast. It's hard to be around others who are not as positive or try to share their crazy stressful stories with me. I just try to tune them out! Good friends are a definite must while enduring life's many challenges.
