Maternity Style: Second Trimester

Well, nineteen weeks in and my pudgy tummy has turned into a full blown baby bump. So now I can finally show it off! I can't believe I'm nearly halfway through this pregnancy. It has seriously flown by soo fast! I guess that's probably because I'm a lot busier this time around and I don't really get much time to think about it. It's just as well though because I'm impatient anyway and can't wait to meet my second little guy. 

He's grown so much and he's been kicking a lot lately too. It reminds me of just how much I've missed feeling those little movements in my belly. It's such a weird but sweet feeling. One that makes being the size of a house totally worth it!

Gender Reveal for Baby Number Two

Well, everyone who guessed baby #2 was a girl (literally everyone I know including myself) was wrong. We're having ANOTHER boy! 

Although 16 weeks is a pretty normal time to find out the gender, we weren't expecting to find out at my appointment last Thursday. With Brooks, we found out at 20 weeks, so I was mentally unprepared. I had it set in my mind that a little girl was floating around in my belly, and I didn't want to believe the ultrasound tech when she said she was 90% sure it was a male. The evidence couldn't be more clear on the sonogram, and despite my surprise, I couldn't be happier to raise another precious baby boy.

Now we just have to think of a name! Oh boy. I have a whole list of girl names but that's all. I've been telling people that we were going to be in major trouble if it ends up being a boy. Any suggestions?? Ha.

Maternity Style : Second Trimester

 I have officially entered the second trimester of pregnancy this week. Yay!! Hopefully, like last time, that means I can soon breathe a little sigh of relief and coast through the next few months. My first trimester symptoms have seemed to be a little more intense than last time so I'll be glad to wave them goodbye. Peace out, acne, nausea, and mood swings!

I'm still in that annoying stage where I look just pudgy in the belly instead of donning a cute (obvious) bump. So, I've been wearing a lot of loose and flowy clothing. That will probably change when I get bigger because I love showing off a cute baby bump!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone is having a good one. We're about to go shoot Brooks' first fireworks. Stay safe and have fun!

Brooks' Big News!

That's right! We're expecting our second little critter to arrive towards the end of January. That will make Brooks and the new baby almost exactly 2 years apart (B was born Feb. 2nd). It's even possible that they could share the same birthday! We don't know what we're having yet, but we can't wait to find out. Obviously, we're super excited! Hooray for baby #2!

Brooks Wilder: Sixteen Months

My little buddy loves summertime! He jumps at any chance he can get to go outside and play. Some of his favorite activities lately have been swimming, running through the sprinkler, and drawing with chalk. Also, you can't really tell in these photos, but the little guy has a pretty great tan from all of our outdoor merriment. He's already several shades darker than me, and I cover him in SPF 70! That's something he most definitely gets from his dad. His mother, on the other hand, remains a fine shade of translucency.

Height 2' 7"

Weight  23lbs

Says Mama, Dada, Bye, Hey, Dog, 'Kota (Dakota) 

Loves waving at people, watching the garbage truck go by, swimming, and running.

Hates being left alone, the vacuum, and not getting his way.

Learning to throw a mean tantrum, and brace himself when Dakota gets "the zoomies"... I don't have it on video yet, but here's an example.

Waft Aromatics Essential Oils

Waft Aromatics essential oil aromatherapy spray
I recently got the opportunity to partner with Waft Aromatics and share a couple of their amazing aromatherapy sprays! The bottles range from remedies for cramps and PMS to stress and insomnia. What's more, all of their sprays are made without synthetics, fillers, or other unnecessary ingredients, so all you get is the good stuff. Speaking of "good stuff", WA is offering FREE SHIPPING on all U.S. orders!

I picked out two sprays that I've really been in need of lately... "Hocus Focus" and "Release the Peace". Both of these oils have been living my my makeup bag lately because Lord knows I've been needing a little help with focusing and de-stressing! Between a puppy, toddler, work, and home life, I have very little chill time. 

Hocus Focus is made from a blend of peppermint and basil oil, which both promote mental clarity while relieving tension and anxiety. Can I get a case of these, please?! I loooooove this spray. The smell is so relaxing! I actually like to spray it around my house after Brooks goes to sleep to help myself unwind before bed.

Release the Peace does exactly what the name says. I spritz it into my hand, then cover my nose and inhale. The refreshing smell of lemon, chamomile, and marjoram oil melt away all the troubles of the day and my inner peace is restored! The scent is very light and fresh, which is something I'm definitely a fan of. To me, there's nothing worse than an overpowering or perfumey fragrance.
