Life Lately

I always end up posting a “life lately” when it seems like we’ve been 90 to nothing and we’ve done all. the. things. but really we haven’t done anything major so it all falls together in one of these posts. 

I haven’t posted much about our Whitlee bug lately but she is just as busy (and sassy!) as ever. We’re still working on potty training but I swear we’re almost there. She can pretty much go all day in panties now but we’re still in pull ups for naps and night time. I think this week I plan to try her at nap with panties on since she’s woken up dry all last week. She’s pretty excited about baby brother coming soon and keeps asking when we’re gonna get him out. Not too much longer, baby girl!

Sassy as ever, exhibit A.   


I know I’ve compared my two pregnancies a lot in my bump updates but I really just feel like they are night and day different. I’m about 80% super pumped to still be pregnant and healthy for the most part and 20% feeling the aches and pains of the last weeks of pregnancy. Still, everything is just different. Here’s one more comparison though. Their little faces look so similar to me. 

We went to the local state fair a couple of weekends ago and had a great time.  Whitlee was finally big enough to ride some rides. And she stole handfuls of funnel cake when daddy wasn’t looking. Mama had a little fried cheesecake, walked around for 3 hours, ended up with very minimal swelling, and blood sugar looked great. I felt so good and Whitlee had a great time so I’d say it was a pretty  successful day!

We celebrated Easter and it was Whitlee’s first time to actually get to hunt Easter eggs. She was super sick her first and second Easters, and I’m so glad we were able to do it this year. She was a little slow to figure out the concept but eventually got the hang of it. (Also, I look huge!)

I can’t believe we’re adding THREE more boys to this bunch in the next few months. Taylor and I are due end of May and Kacie (middle) is due beginning of July. 

We finally busted out our little swimming pool too. The water was a bit cold still but Whitlee loved it anyway. I did too actually. It was super hot that day so I got in and out and got a little sun on my belly. 

Crazy story for the last while – Whitlee got a toy train stuck in her hair. It was so bad. I thought I was going to have to cut her hair to get it out. It was an automatic one and when I asked her what happened she said “I drive it in my hair.” Like oh okay, that’s perfectly normal. 


Seems like Nolan and I have both been nesting like crazy. He’s been getting all of his stuff situated and put away out in the shop and I’ve been getting the house in order. It’s like we both know Huck could come at any time. There’ll be some details regarding that in my 36 week post coming Wednesday! 

Pictures from out in the shop!

So that’s what we’ve been up to lately. April has flown by and I can’t believe it’s almost May – baby month!
