28 weeks comparison

I thought it would be fun to post a comparison of my pregnancies. Not any difference i don't think... It is funny hearing all the different pregnancy comments. Some people have sworn i am smaller then last time, some have sworn i am so much bigger. Weight wise i am right on track where i was last time and i think i look pretty similar. Course now i am 32 weeks. This pregnancy is just slipping right on by! Another thing is the same this time as well... i am super excited for my sweet little girl to get here! The room is pretty much done so i will post those pics soon.

 28 weeks with Violet

28 weeks with Josie

PS Andy and i just celebrated 3 years of wonderful marriage! 2 babies in 3 years! Who knew!? God has blessed us exceedingly. We are so grateful to have found each other and we are hoping this year is just as amazing as our last 3. In the last three years.... We have been to France, Greece, Mexico, Florida.... We have had 3 pregnancies... Given birth to Miss. Josie... Close to giving birth to Miss. Violet... Andy has been in school finishing his degree in Psychology the last 2 years ... He has worked nights for the last 3 years... I went from working in the same salon that i had been at for 7 years to working as a booth renter around the corner... We became proud owners of a husky wolf Lucy... WE HAVE BEEN BUSY!

Dog home

Josie's favorite spot lately. This is also how i know she is ready for a nap. She likes to go in the kennel and lay down. She closes the door behind her and says night night!

 I put Josie in one of those cute fall scenes but shes so tiny and the scene was so big... haha so it doesnt look like much is around her. Oh well! We went to the zoo with Nan Nan but she left right before we took these :(

 This was a few weeks back but you can see my belly kind of! I can't believe im going to be 28 weeks on Friday. This pregnancy has flown by. I need to get cracking on the rest of the nursery before i get too tired to mess with it!

 Josie loves her daddy!
 Andy does really sweet stuff like this for Josie. He is the best daddy!
 Josie loves to wear the hats her NanNan gave her.
At first she pulls them off to look at the them and then once she approves she gets upset when she cant get them back on. So i help her out :)

Catching up

I havent posted in forever Sis. I am very sorry about that. Here are a bunch of cute Josie pics.

Mom said you helped pick out this outfit from India. The children in India wear this?? Yes? i think... haha it was very funny when we put it on, because It was tight and J's belly was hanging out.

Josie climbing in her toy basket to sit on her toys.

Josie in her new heart tights and "Uggs". 
Along with curls comes crazy hair! Loving it too!

I know i said i would post a bump picture.... maybe tomorrow. The second time around i feel like i look really pregnant early on! The great thing is that i don't feel as tight and squished inside so that is nice! I'm 24 weeks and i feel like i look 30! Oh well!


Josie has started carting her stuff around in her grocery cart. I watched her search and pull out a loaf of bread and a chicken from the bottom of her toy box and place them in her grocery cart. They came with the set. I was amazed that she even remembered that. She is such a little homemaker with her grocery shopping, strolling, and cleaning everything with a rag. Sooo much fun already :)

Josie LOVED her some LFR. She got to stay up late and skip naps and ham it up with anyone who would participate. My child is a social butterfly. It doesnt take long for her little baby laugh to melt some hearts.

She made some friends in the nursery

I LOVE my car

We have Nan Nan and Pop Pop and Jude to thank for this awesome hand me down. (and Sister too!) We have had this car parked in our dining room since last summer when my sis moved away. But Josie just rediscovered it about 2 weeks ago. She LOVES it and i have love it too but sometimes i have to have a break because if its in sight she wants to be in it. She climbs all over it, stands up in it, says hi to me from the front window and the back window. She pulls her stuffed animals in. But it requires constant supervision from me which can be hard if she has been in it for hours. Im not kidding, this child will play on the car for hours and then scream and cry when i try to remove her from it. When i open the door, she pulls it back closed. Its really pretty funny. Im glad she loves her car so much.

 Trying to steer and hug Pooh ain't easy!

 Exhibit A: For why constant supervision is needed.

Come closer and I'll bite you!
