'twas the night before school

... And we are running around like crazy!! Time to finish all the last minute things .. Getting Madison's box for her cubby ready with change of clothes and her name and picture, family pictures and labeling Madison's coats and shoes!  
We had a good weekend to end our summer .. Saturday Chris worked so Madison and I ventured to the Bronx Zoo our favorite go to day trip spot! Madison was super surprised when Daddy decided to show up to visit at the zoo!! 
We had a great zoo day.. After that we headed to a fun block party and then off to a bonfire at uncle pj and uncle Mikey's!  
Sunday was spent looking at open houses! We are currently on the hunt for a new home for our expanding family. We thought we found "the one" but someone came in with all cash and we lost out! So back at it!!!

Anyways off to cook some dinner and then it's bath and bed for the big girl .. Only 1 month til she's 2:(. Where did my little girl go?

Big news!

Hey everyone!! Sorry for my long absence.. Been a little crazy here lately! Put our house on the market, trying to find a new one, getting Madison ready for preschool and a new baby coming! 
Our due date for baby #2 is March 17th 2014 (Irish much??)   Figured I'd start blogging g again about this pregnancy!  So far it's been a little rough was pretty sick again at the start but feeling much better .. Now heading into the 2nd trimester I hope the feeling better trend continues!

How far along? 13 weeks 
Have you started to show? Yes I've got a bump but some days I feel like it just looks like I've been eating to many donuts! 
Total weight gain: up 3lbs (hopefully wont gain as much as I did with Madison!) 
Maternity clothes? Shirts only .. I've got a little bump but pants still fit perfectly.
Stretch marks?  Just what's left over from Madison 
Sleep: what is that?? I get on average 4hrs a night .. I can't seem to get comfortable!
Best moment this week: Madison kissing my belly before bed .. And Chris finally being able to make an appt and hear the baby heartbeat :) also took part in the color run 5k .. Didn't run the whole thing as I planned when I registered.. But we finished it and ran a good portion!
Miss Anything? Sleep .. But I'm starting to get more energy
Movement: at our 12 week ultrasound we saw the baby move but so far I've only felt a little flutter when laying on my stomach 
Food cravings: banana cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory... Waiting for my bday to have some.  And French fries with ranch.
Anything making you queasy or sick: some chicken, the smell of coffee (which sucks!!)
Gender predictions: I'm thinking boy (so far this pregnancy has been a little diff then Madison) Chris thinks girl.

Labor Signs: Nope. Hopefully not for 188 days! 
Symptoms: still some morning sickness and starting to feel some stretching! 
Belly Button in or out? In .. Never popped with Madison.
Wedding rings on or off? on.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and moody ... Depends on my sleep!! 
Looking forward to: feeling some kicks!!!
