well, not the most flattering picture ever taken, but i seem to forget to ask tyler to take one of me and i couldn't let another day go by without documenting this pregnancy. this is the FIRST pregnancy picture i've taken! poor baby #2...already being neglected.
i am just over 20 weeks and feeling great. i'm still working out 3 mornings a week, (even though at a slow pace and with light weights!) it feels great though and just this past week i have really felt this little girl start to move. i had forgotten what it feels like...to have a little creature inside you moving around. it sometimes startles me and i have to remind myself that i am pregnant and this is a good thing that she is moving! no names yet and i'm almost positive, knowing tyler and i, we will not have a name until she is born. we are the worst at coming up with names and can never agree, ESPECIALLY with girl names. any suggestions??!!!
not much new around here. riley is as funny and intense as ever and will officially be 2 1/2 may 11. which i have learned that 2 1/2 is a period of "disequilibrium" and boy, is that ever true. she is waking up almost nightly, very sensitive to any kind of change and extremely emotional over just about everything. she is so sweet though and almost daily asks if she can kiss and sing to the baby. her favorites continue to be books, arts & crafts, riding her trike, her babies and creating lots of loud noises (both happy and not) with her friend annika.
here she is helping me make some chicken pot pie for a friend that just had a new baby:
we are gearing up for a busy month of may: mothers day, my sister martha's 28th birthday, maui, tyler and i's 7th wedding anniversary, remembering tyler's dad dave who passed away 4 years ago (wow, i seriously can't believe it's been that long, it still feels like yesterday), my big 3-0, my nephew henry's 2nd birthday, as well as a few close friends & kids bdays...
happy (almost) weekend!
