Menu Planning Saturday

We usually go grocery shopping over the weekend, so I'm going to try to menu plan.  It's hard for me to keep to it though, but I'm going to try!

Sunday: Potato Leek Soup  Because Vickie's was so good!
Monday: Ranch Tetrazzini
Tuesday: Broccoli Rice and Chicken
Wednesday: Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
Thursday: Dinner at Grandmas
Friday: Left overs
Saturday: Dinner out

Here's hoping it works out! Wednesday may get postponed because I need to find someone to watch Hayden in the afternoon.  Thus, I'd probably have dinner with Grandma or Dad, whoever can watch her.

16 months!



Hayden Isabella,
You are amazing.  You are CRAZY too! You make me laugh everyday! As I write this you are napping in your bouncer chair, face down, knees on the floor.   You weigh about 23 lbs now and are about 30 1/2 inches tall.  You still where 12 month clothes and size 4 shoes.  You are speaking more and more everyday.  You're also signing a lot too! Your new favorite sign is "baby" and you love to do it when we put on the Baby Signing Time DVD for you.  You say "Da" for Daddy now and still don't really say "Mama" yet.  That's ok, I'll wait.  :o)

You love to grab us and take us where you want to go.  Usually to take our hand and walk us into the kitchen for a strawberry or down to your room to read a few books.  I love it. You're definitely a crab if you don't take a nap though! This afternoon I saw that in full force especially since you woke up at 4:20am! I was not ready for that!

You love to climb onto the couch and cuddle or into your big girl bed and read a book.  You also love to chase Leo and try to cuddle him, but he's fond of that.

I love you so much baby girl.  You are beautifully and fearfully made.

Love,
Mommy

Apple Annie's!

We took a family trip up to Apple Annie's today! Last year, Hayden was just a little baby, just 4 months old when we went.  This year, she's a big girl, 15 months! She had a lot of fun and we did too.  We started at the orchard and ate lunch then picked a few apples.  We didn't get too many because we don't want to waste them.  Then we headed to the pumpkin patch.  We didn't find too many good looking pumpkins in the patch so we ended up buying one that they had picked.  Oh well.  I did, however, pick 2 whole tomatoes! :o) Hayden was a trooper for the long drive up and back, she slept both ways!

Here we are after lunch and Hayden ate the first apple we picked!

Hayden in the same place as last year!
2009 at 4 months old!

2010 at 15 months old!

Family picture!

Loving the apple she got to eat!

Will's first apple! (The apple Hayden ate!)

Another family shot!

Hayden liked playing with the sunflowers but there were a lot of bees in them!

Here's me with my first apple! Also, at 22 weeks pregnant!  I don't feel like I looked pregnant at all today! Just... chubby.


Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 22 Weeks
Size of baby: length of a spaghetti squash
Total Weight Gain/Loss: gained 3 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Uh, yah.
Gender: It's another GIRL!
Movement: mostly at night and really low 
Sleep: definitely getting more uncomfortable!
What I miss: not being tired... but that hasn't happened since Hayden!
Cravings: I eat a lot of fruit like I did with Hayden
Symptons: I'm still tired all of the time, but I think that's because of work and Hayden too!
Best Moment this week: going to Apple Annie's with my beautiful family!

Late night

Well, I started my Fall Break with nasty cold.  It lasted the whole first week, and now I've passed it down to Hayden for the second week of break.  Great.  She seems to be feeling a bit better today but last night was a different story.  She fell asleep at 7pm, which is normal, but then woke up at 10pm.  She did not want to go back to sleep and threw quite a fit.  Then the throwing up began.  Poor baby! I was kind of in a panic though because I had nothing to catch it in! I yelled for Will and he brought a towel and helped me clean it up off the floor.  Can I just tell you that baby puke is not the smell you want to smell when you are pregnant.  Ick.  Anyway, my baby is feeling better this morning but is tired.  She snuggled me in bed for about an hour before she was ready to go back to sleep herself.  We watched some Disney Channel together and just cuddled.  I hate when she doesn't feel good!

This morning she wanted the nectarine that I was having, and did some damage on that thing!

Feeling better!
