Knocked Up!

Posted by: Maggie

Well, I’ve accomplished # 25 on my 30 by 30 list! Unfortunately, that means I’ll have to drop a few others off my list, because I probably shouldn’t go wine tasting while pregnant.

We are thrilled! Eleanor is very excited to be a big sister! She already has some names picked out: Greece, Squeaky, and Eurenka. We’ll keep them in mind, but we have a few others we’re thinking of.

This sonogram was at 8 weeks. I’m 9 weeks now, and definitely feeling it. Although, I’m feeling much better than I did with Eleanor. The last time around the morning sickness was terrible, I was throwing up everyday and feeling constantly nauseous. I lost 10 pounds and was hospitalized for dehydration three times. This time around I’m pretty much constantly nauseous, but I’ve only thrown up once and I’m not nearly as miserable. Thank goodness! I don’t know how I would have handled taking care of Eleanor from the bathroom floor.

I am completely exhausted all the time though. I have almost no energy. I’m taking 10am naps, and then lying on the couch while Eleanor watches tv all afternoon. It’s some pretty fantastic parenting. I don’t think she minds so much, except that she keeps asking if I’m going to be sick forever.

I’m planning on doing a weekly photo and pregnancy update for you all. So I’ll have that first update for you later today or tomorrow, depending on my energy level!

A HoodLim Baby Shower

Posted by: Maggie

New Years weekend I went to the HoodLims’ baby shower. Josh and Eleanor stayed home, because Josh’s cousin was in town visiting.

The HoodLims have such great parties, always with tons of food and drinks.

I spent most of the party hanging out with their lovely friends.

Then we all sat and watched the requisite baby shower games.

One was a guys relay race, of course with backpack bellies.

Another was backpack belly twister. Pretty entertaining to watch.

The last game was guess the baby’s name. Kristy read all the names aloud and announced that we would have to wait until the baby was born to find out who won!

The cake was the cutest! With tiny baby Crocs on top.

In addition to cake we had Kristy’s famous giant pizookie! So delicious!

After cake and pizookie we headed inside to open the gifts.

Andrew kept track of the gifts on a spreadsheet on his laptop. Those HoodLims are so cute.

Kristy got tons of great stuff, including a very cute diaper cake!

Coming Soon: HoodLims Maternity Portraits & Newborn portraits sometime in February! We can’t wait to meet the little HoodLim!
