Bella's 3rd party at Chuck E Cheese!

I can't believe that I have a 3 year old! It's just crazy how fast my little sweetheart is growing up!

Since we officially have a "big girl", Bella was given the choice this year on what she wanted to do and for a solid 6 months all she talked about was having her birthday party at Chuck E Cheese.

So that's what we did!
Bella and her Chuck E Cheese balloon. So cute! She loves playing the games. She could care less about the pizza, drinks or cake.. she could have just played games the whole time.

Tayzhia, Gretchen and Bells all had fun dancing before the Chuck E made his appearance. They liked watching themselves on the screen while they danced.

We went all out and got a birthday cake too :)

Bella loved meeting the big C and loved the birthday hat and medallion he presented to her during the birthday show. Seriously the happiest kid ever! She grinned from ear to ear the whole time!

Bella got to go into the ticket blaster and was lucky enough to bring someone along with her (just in case she got scared). Her cousin Emma was the lucky gal to go in too. She did great and caught the 1000 ticket! Bella ended up with a little over 2000 tickets. All her cousins gave her their tickets too. They love her so much!

 Bella got lots of fun gifts for her birthday this year. Justin and I gave her presents to her over a few day period because she got a little bit spoiled this year!

After the party, we took the cake to my parents house and picked up some ice cream too.

We love our sweet 3 year old!

Disneyland 2013!

We had every intention of going to Disneyland this year but since we were blessed with a bun in the oven, we decided to go next year instead. I'm thinking sometime in the Fall when the weather is beautiful and hopefully it won't be as crowded. Bella will be about 3 and half and our littlest one will be 15 months-ish. The furthest Bella has traveled is Las Vegas and I haven't been to southern California since my sophomore year in high school. I can't wait!

My plans..
  • I actually only want to spend one or two days at Disneyland and plan other activities (the beach!) for the other days.
  • I'm hoping my mom and sister's family can go too!
  • We plan on flying. I do not love road trips and with Justin's back problems I think it would be better to hop on a plane!
Putting it in writing makes it set in stone, so we are for sure going! If anyone has any suggestions on things that are must-dos at Disneyland.. do tell!

Checking in..

The stomach bug is sweeping it's way through our house this weekend. I thought there was nothing worse than having the worst cold in the world plus being pregnant but boy was I wrong!

I can now say, I'm pretty sure that having me AND Bella having the stomach bug at the same time PLUS being pregnant is the worst thing in world.. but I don't really want to jinx it. Justin isn't feeling good today now. I think we will be staying home today for the superbowl. :(

On a happier note, I ordered this cell phone case last night and I'm so excited for it to get here.
Did you know that I LOVE bees? I think bees and their whole colony is amazing. The artwork is by Katie Daisy and I think she is pretty amazing too.

This little sweetheart in my belly is so active. Way more active than Bella was. I worried so much about Bella while I was pregnant because she would go forever without letting me know she was okay. I don't have to worry with this one. Feeling the baby move is the best part of being pregnant.

We still haven't decided 100% on a name. I'm thinking Katelynn for a first name. Katelynn or KateLynn? And middle names are still up in the air. Katelynn Eliza.. Katelynn Mae, Katelynn Hope, Katelynn Navy (I LOVE the name Navy.. but I don't know how it sounds with our last name)..

GTG BBS! :) Have a happy Sunday!

It's a...

GIRL! For sure this time! We had our targeted ultrasound and a regular appointment and both my doctor and the ultrasound specialist agree that it's a girl. And the best news was that she is perfectly healthy. I was a little bit nervous for the targeted ultrasound this time just because I knew how much they looked at and just really wanted that confirmation that everything was going well. We feel so blessed lately!

I love the 4d ultrasound pictures that they do. We have gotten so really fun shots the last couple of appointments! I was too lazy to scan them in so I just took pictures on my cell phone.. story of my life..

These next ones were from my last doctors appointment and we caught her while she was yawning. I'm pretty sure that we woke her up because she had been relatively still that morning and was kicking like crazy during the ultrasound. Sorry baby!

And this little one is extremely excited for her little sister to be here! She has been so much fun lately and never stops talking. I have a big post coming up soon because she is our little birthday girl this month. I can't believe she is almost 3!!

I've been feeling pretty good lately. Only a week to go until my third trimester starts. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is flying by. Only 98 days to go until my due date!
