Pregnancy - 26 Weeks... Eek, First Update!

haha SO yes.  I'll agree...  2nd time around is a lot less "fun".  No, I haven't had a horrible pregnancy, very easy, just like with Brooke.  Chasing a toddler (23 month old) and trying to do anything fun and extra in regards to a new babe is close to impossible!  Plus, I haven't really had anything EARTH SHAKING to share on this ol' blog.  I'm doing my best to keep up with weekly pictures because I think it's fun to compare.  Also, it's hard to find unique questions for the 2nd go round, so I made up some of my own! Enjoy!

How far along? 26 Weeks & 5 days (I know, I hate I'm not doing it on the "exact" start of a new week this time around)

Total weight gain/loss: ehhh, errr, I'm trying not to think about that! I did do ZUMBA 3 times a week when I was pregnant with Brooke, I'm lucky to get a short work out in 2-3 times a week now. I like these. 

Maternity clothes?  Some.  I'm all about not spending much money, I some of my clothes are maternity hand-me-downs, but most are just stretchy clothes.

Stretch marks? Nope, bless you sweet child, bless you! 

Sleep: HA.  Ever since Brooke was born, I STINK AT SLEEPING!  

Best moment this week: MY 23 MONTH OLD IS BASICALLY POTTY TRAINED!!! Yep, dry days in REAL undies with a diaper worn at nap and night time.  I'm pretty happy, if you can't tell :) 

Miss Anything? The freedom to go out whenever I want and have a quick and successful shopping trip.  For real, I love Brooke but it was a heck of a lot easier to get in and out of a lot of stores in a short amount of time before she joined me as my partner in crime :) 

Movement: Yes, she's a wiggler! 

Food cravings: No, I haven't really had any this time around either. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not at all. 

Have you started to show yet: Yes, a lot higher than I was with Brooke, which makes me look like a blob.

Gender: Another sweet lil lady, Taylor Grace!

Labor Signs:  None. 

Belly Button in or out? Still in!  It's getting flatter though. 

Wedding rings on or off?  Still on, but getting tighter. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: This all depends on Brooke's temperament... I know, terrible.  haha If she's easy going and doesn't fuss, I'm good.  If she's fussy all day... I just want to be a lonely grump after she goes to bed. 

Looking forward to: Getting the girls rooms decorated and situated. Praying the transition from a crib to a twin bed is easy for Brooke!
