and ....

hello to you too baby!! We are excited and happy to expecting our 2nd little person. I am happily out of the first trimester which thankfully wasn't as bad as it could have been! Almost 14 weeks - and hopefully in less than one week we will know if this is a boy or a girl. I had a ton of issues w/ my pregnancy w/ Dash so I am considered high risk which makes this process all the more frustrating and time consuming. It is insane the amount of appointments I have already scheduled and the thought of the dreaded bedrest really makes me nervous. On the positive side - I have ultrasounds every 2 weeks so at least I get to see the baby a lot!

finally spring time

The weather is finally nice outside....almost feels like summer....the perfect time to enjoy an ice cold slurpee from our local 7-11 on the beach.  Even though we live in Florida, we have had the worst winter ever. It did not get warm until last week, the middle of March. I felt bad for all those spring breakers that had to suffer through a 50 degree spring break. We love to play in our backyard, using sidewalk chalk to cover the pavers w/ toddleresque designs and occasionally enjoying some for a mid-afternoon snack! It seems like shoes are optional this time of the year - the pavement isn't hot yet and it just seems right to wander the neighborhood sans shoes. (except we went to the zoo yesterday and I totally forgot to bring shoes for Dash - I think I got some nasty looks from people, opps) I feel like a giant cloud has lifted and we can be outside for hours a day and the days go by so much faster and everyone is happier.
