~Monthly Memories~

~December~

December came and went! I can't believe the holidays are over. We had a great month even though it was pretty low key.

~Kimberly~
01. She is quiet the character these days.
02. She thinks skipping is walking backwards.
03. She loves carrying around purses, phones, and wearing sunglasses.
04. She still doesn't like Santa Clause (Maybe next year)
05. She does really good with her big girl bed. Hopefully she still does good when we move her room to one of the upstairs rooms.
06. She loves looking at Christmas lights.
07. If you ask her, her full name she says "Kimerly Coon" It's pretty cute.
08. Her favorite work to say is 'huh' to everything you say. 
09. She gets scared more easily these days. (She got scared of the bath water at the hotel in St. George)

~Mommy & Daddy~
01. Daddy has had over a week and a half off work. We have loved having him home with us.
02. Mommy is 23 weeks Pregnant!

~Christmas Time~

 We have been having fun this holiday season. 

First we put Christmas lights on the house. We had to bundle up a little and I think Kimberly looked so cute!!! She was a big helper!


 Handing daddy the hooks
 Then we went to Grandma Patti's work to see Santa! Well I'm sure you can guess by the picture how excited Kimberly was to see him.
 But......she loved the present
 A new baby doll (The whole week before she said she was going to ask Santa for a "baby sister please" not sure where this came from)
We then put up our Christmas tree. I love having a real Christmas tree in my house. The smell.....the look.....everything. Kimberly loved putting up the decorations. It was a little hard for her to understand 'fragile' but we made it without breaking any and we will need to get some more that she can do (non fragile).
Such a serious look on her face when she would put one on the tree.





While at the grocery store Jeremy decided to get a coconut to try. He didn't love it (he said it was to strong for him) but Kimberly LOVED it! She ate a pretty big chunk of it and liked the milk.

~Half Way~

~20 weeks~

Well I have made it 20 weeks! It's crazy that I'm half way. 
As bad as I felt in the beginning it has been going by at a steady pace. 
I still have my sick moments but it has been pretty good lately. Sometimes I forget I'm pregnant and then I get a cramp or a kick that reminds me! :)
The baby has been moving around like crazy and I am enjoying each movement.
Last week at about 19 1/2 weeks we had our ultra sound. 
I love seeing the baby. They said everything looked ok but the doctor would say for sure at our next apt.
We DID wait to find out the sex of this baby. I didn't know if I would go threw with it but I am excited to wait and see when the baby is born.
Now we need to really start looking at names!!!
I have felt more cramping/stretching lately but the doctor says it is all normal.
If I walk around to much my lower body starts to hurt. I believe it is my sciatic nerve!
I feel like I am more active with this pregnancy which is nice. But I do enjoy my lazy days when I get them!
I feel like my stomach is starting to stick out (but not enough to put pictures up yet! Ha ha)
I still can't believe I have less than 5 months and I will be a mom of 2!!!!

~Crib-Toddler bed~

 Well we finally did it! We changed Kimberly's crib over to a toddler bed. She has always been good and never tried to climb out. She usually just lays there until you come into the room. I was wondering how this would go. The first night was pretty bad but she was a little cranky so I think it was a mixture of a few things, that made it go worse than usual. It has been a couple weeks and for the most part she has done well. Fights a little at bed time but usually doesn't get up. (just gets upset) And nap time has been even better. Some days she will tell us she is tired and so we will tell her to go to bed and she will put herself to bed. So I would have to say no complains here! :)

Helping daddy take the crib side off!!

 Didn't realize there was a down part so she tried to climb over the high side! Silly girl
 So much easier!
 So excited!
Ahh.....so comfy!

~Halloween~

 ~Boo at the Zoo~
::10/29/11::

Jeremy, Patti, Nick, Kimberly and I went out to boo at the zoo. It started at 8 am (Which is early for our family) but we got up and went. It was pretty cold so the kids didn't really want to walk around. But I believe they had fun. Some of the animals were pretty active so that was fun to see. We made it threw in less than 2 hours (we missed the main crowd that started at 9). And then headed to breakfast! It got us into the Halloween spirit.
 

 Kimberly: Pebbles! Nick: Transformer
 ~Halloween~
::10/31/11::
For Halloween we pretty much just hung out during the day. Kimberly and I went over to Patti's work for lunch. Which was fun Kimberly was pretty hyper! Mommy made home made chili (which smelled good all day). Grandma Patti, Pa, and Nick joined us for dinner and trick or treating. This was Kimberly's first year to go trick and treating. She loved it and was so cute. She would say "Pick or Peet" and "thank you" at every house. It was a good night!

Our Cute little pebbles and her baby! 
 Pumpkins we grew in our own garden!!!




~Birthday Fun~

~ Kimberly's Birthday ~
::10/20/11::

For Kimberly's birthday daddy had to work and Maga flew in to spend the day with us. We had a really fun day shopping with Maga. Kimberly started the day looking so cute in her new birthday outfit and threw out the day maga ended up buying her pretty much every piece of clothing. First she bought the birthday outfit, Then at burlington Kimberly decided to be magical (While sitting in the cart she peed it went down her leg, into her shoes and socks but only got a small spot on her pants) How this happened was beyond me or my mom. While there also we found some really cute Dora boots that I wanted to get so bad but by the time we found her size and put them on her she was sliding all over the place. (who makes boots that don't have any traction) So we didn't get them. Then I ran out of diapers. She needed new shoes and socks. It was a crazy but fun day!!! Thanks Maga for a great shopping day. After shopping we met up with Papa, Grammi and Poppy at a Japanese place for dinner. I thought she would love watching them cook. (She hated the fire so she was nervous the whole time) But on the other side she learned and did really well with the chopsticks! I was a proud momma! ha ha
 

 ~Kimberly's Party~
::10/21/11::

The day after her birthday we had a little get together with Grandma Patti, Pa (trip), Janica, and her kids (Anela, Ariana, and Gerry). We had cake and ice cream and opened presents. She loved everything she got.

Mommy and daddy: Fish tank (We ended up losing all but one fish and another one before passing had babies but we are working on being first time fish tank owners!)
Grandma Patti and Pa: Shoes, a new baby w/blanket, bottle, and other items, and a two dollar bill!
Afa Kids: A shopping cart (Kimberly loves)
Grandpa Jared: An Easel and Dora book (Grandpa couldn't make it to the party but he came over a couple days later)








 Mommy made a cake (not my best). Kimberly wanted her bear to be Blue!

 Fire still makes her nervous so mommy and daddy had to blow out the candles.

 Mmmmm......Cake!!!!

~Number 2~

~12 weeks~

Well I thought I should put a little post on our exciting news! Yes we are pregnant with Baby Coon #2. I am due April 28, 2012. I have been pretty sick with this pregnancy but it is different than when I was pregnant with Kimberly. I have NO appiteite!!!!!, I have to eat every two hours or I get sicker, I usually only throw up when I haven't eaten so it just stomach acid, I have horrible heartburn, I want to sleep a lot but my body hurts from laying around so much, I feel like I'm getting motion sickness whenever I walk around or drive anywhere and I feel like it is harder having Kimberly here because I don't have enough energy for her. (she watches a lot of tv!!). I have had some distractions I went to St. George, Janica has kept me entertained a time or two, and we have gone over to Grandma Patti's. Most the time I don't feel like doing much but I know I need to get out of the house. I want to be able to enjoy the holidays. We have so many coming up! (Kimberly's second birthday, Halloween, My birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years!) I have good days and semi bad days but they do seem to be getting better. Don't get me wrong I am excited for this baby but I don't think Pregnancy is my thing. I think Jeremy would have to do some REALLY good convincing for me to do this again! I'm kind of thinking 2 kids is a good number! :)  

I have had one doctors appointment and it went well. The doctor said everything looked good and when he did the little ultrasound at the office we saw a very active little baby. So I am hoping at my appointment in a week we will be able to hear the heartbeat. And at this point I don't think we are going to find out the sex of the baby! (I know I'm sure I will have a few people upset but I think it will be fun to wait until the baby is here!)

01. We found out on Daddies birthday that Kimberly is going to be a BIG SISTER!!!!(more on that later) I am due on April 28, 2012. We are pretty excited. I don't think Kimberly understands it but I think she will be excited.
02. Kimberly loves to try on other peoples shoes. When it is time to leave she will bring everyone their shoes.
03. She is talking so much these days and it is sentences now instead of just words. She repeats EVERYTHING people say.

06. She wants to watch TV A LOT these days!!! Oops!!! Her favorites is Dora, bubble guppies, and "Mickey the mouse" (that is what she calls it)
07. She is getting into babies dolls!

10. Kimberly has been waking up earlier than mommy likes these days not sure what it up with that.
