Moving right along...sorta...

So I'm in the second week 13 of my pregnancy.  Let me explain.  I went to the doctor this week for my regular check up and while there I asked about the doctor's official report of my ultrasound.  When I had my ultrasound I was told by the technician that I was measuring 7 days smaller then I thought I was.  That day I had my ultrasound I thought I was 9 weeks 5 days but in reality the baby was measuring 8 weeks 5 days.  The tech told me usually as long as the baby is measuring within 7 days of my predicted gestation they wouldn't probably change my due date but she told me to clarify at my next appointment.  So I when I clarified that this week at my appointment the official report written up by the doctor she did indeed bump me back a week.  So now our official due date is July 18th.  

Below is a picture of me pregnant with Vivian and Oliver...oh my, I am already bigger...this could get very interesting.  I better start oiling this belly up or the stretch marks could be vicious!

1st Haircuts!

Just wanted to check in to document a little of what we've been doing!  Below are a couple of pictures from New Years Eve.  We had a low key night, Matt made me dinner after the kids went to bed and we could barely keep our eye open to see the ball drop at midnight.  We're pretty exciting!  The only thing that would keep these two sitting still was to pass over our iPhone's, I'll do just about anything for snap shot of these two together.  

Up next was Oliver's first haircut.  On January 5th I bit the bullet and took him to get his hair cut.  It was long overdue.  His bangs were hanging in his eyes and the hair behind his ears was so long it was like he had sprouted wings and was ready to take off in flight.  But getting his hair cut meant my baby was turning into a big boy.  As I suspected things did not go so well, he wasn't really a happy camper.  

A brief pause in crying to have one bite of pirates booty.  

No thank you, I do not want a snack.  

Vivan sucking on her sucker holding mommy's money thinking "don't you dare make me do that!"

Almost done!

The after...so cute, such a big boy!

So the next day, January 6th, I was having regrets I didn't get Vivian's hair trimmed up too.  So I got my old hair cutting scissors out and trimmed her hair up myself.  

This girl will do anything for a few M&M's.  

The final product....less of a mullet more of a big girl!

The remains...

A New Year brings...

a new baby!

We are excited to announce that coming this July our family will be a party of 5!  Today I am actually 12 weeks and 4 days, nearing the end of my first trimester.  Our due date is July 11th, shortly after the big kids 2nd birthday.  This pregnancy has already proven to be different from the 1st one but the first time I wasn't chasing two active 18 month olds.  It's been officially confirmed that it's just one baby (we won't know what to do with just one, haha!).  And believe it or not, our plan is to not find out the gender of this baby.  This could change?  But we have everything we need for both a boy and a girl so what better surprise could their be?!?!  So all we need is a new car, another crib (yep, you read that right...I have no intentions in rushing O & V out of theirs) and we'll be set!  3 under 3...bring it on!
