Disneyland 2014 Part 1

Back in May of 2014 we were sitting around my parents dinner table and reminiscing about the many trips we took to Disneyland as a family when I was little. I mean we were hitting up Disneyland 2 to 3 times a year! My Grandma would come and my aunts and cousins! It was always such a blast and it is definitely something Ryan and I want to do for our children. So we all decided to book our plane tickets, come September we booked our hotels, and November we did the rental cars. Man we talked this trip up. We couldn't wait to see Krew when he saw the characters for the first time. We visited the park December 23rd to the 25th and spent the rest of our days in San Diego on La Jolla beach. Our most favorite place ever! I will do short recaps on each picture but I hope they mainly speak for themselves. Krew was an absolute blast and we are already planning our next trip back. Baby Lady will be here too!!

We waiting 1 whole hour to see Mickey Mouse. They trap you. You go into his house and you think the line isn't long because his house looks so small. Oh, no it's a long line and people will bombard the crap out of your butt. Just to see what's going on.
Anyways, the moment Krew saw Mickey Mouse was so magical. I wish I could describe the feelings we had as parents. I mean look at our smiles! He said "Mickey's shoes" like holy crap this guy is real! IT WAS THE BEST EVER!
He gave Mickey high five and you could just see his mind racing, it was mind blowing.
Top 3 best parent moments ever! That day we took it pretty easy, I ate 2 giant pickles. No, make that 3.

The next day we ventured into California Adventure Park! Krew has been obsessed with the movie Cars ever since I can remember. Again, his mind was blown by Tow Mater and McQueen
He couldn't even focus his mind was so freakin blown!

This is one of my favorite pictures. He kept hugging McQueen and saying "Ca-Chow"! Too cute!

We met Jake. Krew gave him a hug and sang Yo Ho!
One of our resolutions in 2014 was to travel more and I would say our trip at the end of the year really blew it all out of the water! I am so blessed to have my little family!


21 Weeks!

I had initially meant for this to be last week, but obviously I didn't get around to it.

How far along? 21 weeks plus 1 day! Every single day counts!

Maternity clothes? I am mixing in a lot of my normal clothes with maternity pants and leggings. It's getting harder though. I am looking forward to a little shopping spree this summer though! 

Stretch marks? No! Thanking my lucky stars!

Sleep: It's ok, I have a really hard time falling asleep. Once I am asleep I will only wake up a couple times. I wake up in the mornings sore as hell though!

Best moment this week:  I am starting to feel baby lady LOTS more. I can't wait till family & friends will be able to feel her kick from the outside. My stupid placenta.

Miss Anything? No, I am so thankful to be able to carry life!

Movement: Not as much as I remember feeling with Krew. Like I've said my placenta is anterior so it's a lot harder to feel her kicks. She mostly dances around at night right before bedtime. Sometimes in the mornings but not much. I read they sleep 14 + hours during the day so that makes sense!

Food cravings: No real cravings. I'm trying to eat what I feel like but remain healthy. It's a lot easier then most people think!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Sometimes the thought of meat does.

Gender: Baby lady & we have a name! Not announcing till birth.

Labor Signs: None.

Symptoms: Just tired all the time and I'm sore all over. With Krew I wasn't this uncomfortable so early on. My tailbone has been so painful lately!

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Pretty good overall. My progesterone injections do make me a little more sensitive but I am trying to keep my emotions in check. I have had a case of the January blues. I just want to get outside!

Looking forward to:  My sweet husband scheduled me a pregnancy massage for tomorrow! My tailbone has been killing me.

We started this new thing with Krew, in the evenings after dinner we pick a Disney movie on Netflix and crawl under the covers and watch it! It's so fun and Krew will get so snuggly with us!
I FINALLY got our family pictures, Krew 2 year, and our Disneyland pictures developed and in frames. Although I've only gotten 1 hung.

This was me sitting in the laundry room of our hotel room in CA. I only packed Krew ONE blanket for our 5 day trip. BAD mistake. He got chocolate milk and sand ALL over it. I just kept thinking at least I am in sunny CA!

This little cheese ball is getting too smart for his own good! He talks so much, all the time. Just babbles my ear right off. 

I've been trying new hairstyles lately. I don't wash my hair more than twice a week so it's hard for me to come up with cute and easy hairstyles that I can wear to work!

I am so happy we decided to purchase all of our Disneyland pictures! I can't wait to take baby lady back! We really had the time of our lives!
When Ryan is working Krew will happily take over his spot in bed. I don't know where he got this laying position from but it's so funny! He really is the king of the castle at our house! We just love him so!
Currently this is the only place I ever want to be. I've had some MAJOR round ligment pains and my tailbone is killing me. So baths help me relax soo much. My master bathroom is worth the house payment alone.


20 weeks down!

(19 weeks!)

How far along?

20 weeks! My doctor projects I have 16-17 more weeks, of course we are all hoping for the full 20!

  Total weight gain/loss: 

I am up 4 pounds. My doctor told me I need to start eating more calories because I should be up 7-8 pds by now. I've been working hard on eating complex carbs and proteins, it's hard for me in general to gain weight. (I know sob story) but I am really trying my hardest!


Some nights it's good, some night's it's bad. I usually wake up in the early morning hours with hip pain. Mostly in my right hip. I am sleeping with a bump pillow but I think I need to add some extras. Poor Ryan isn't going to have a bed here soon.

 Best moment this week: 

It's only Tuesday. We started this new thing watching Disney movies with Krew at night and I love it. We just snuggle and he will talk us through the movie. I am going to miss is just being us 3.


I haven't felt her near as much as I remember feeling Krew. Turns out I have an anterior placenta, so baby is behind the placenta and her kicks need to be that much harder for me to feel them. Ryan still hasn't felt her and I only do a few times at night. It's a total bummer and I am really hoping the placenta takes a backseat to baby.


Luckily I have still been feeling pretty good. I do get tired a whole lot earlier in the evening. I am back at the gym but am having some tailbone and round ligament pains.

 Food cravings: 

Sandwiches still, Pizza Pringles, and Vitamin Water!

 Food aversions:



At our 20 week SHE is still a SHE! I am getting more nervous about being the mother to a little girl.

Labor Signs:

None, luckily. I am still having the progesterone shots each week which suck but we are really hoping they help keep baby in to cook longer!

Belly Button in or out?

It's making it's way out and it confuses Krew. SO cute!

What I miss:

Nothing this week. I'm starting to find more of my wardrobe that will work with my growing bump and I am totally more confidant this time around then I was with Krew.

What I am looking forward to:

We are going to start getting a nursery ready soon and pulling out some things we kept from when Krew was a baby. We have our bedding and swing picked out.

Weekly Wisdom: 

Go to sleep. The house does not need to be perfect. 


My 20 week ultrasound was last week. It was so fun to see baby lady!
