25 Weeks

25 Weeks today! Only 15 weeks to go :-)

Everything is still looking great. She was measuring a little small (22/23 weeks) at my last appointment but the OB said at this stage the measurement is not entirely accurate and so not to worry about it. If she is still measuring small at the next appointment in a month then they will do an ultrasound. I think I just have small babies, thank goodness! She is a funny little one. She has a schedule and so I can always predict when she is going to be moving. 6am, 9:30, 12:30, 3 and 9 in the evening, every day without fail. She of course moves a few other times throughout the day but regardless she is always moving at those times. I hope she keeps this schedule, it will work perfectly with how the boys day usually goes. A little bit of morning sickness has been creeping back in and I have finally succumbed to wearing maternity pants. Other than that I am feeling pretty good. I am loving the timing of this pregnancy. The last 15 weeks or so go by so slow but with the fall coming it will keep me busy and distracted. I am teaching preschool for September and Quinn is doing Tot Sports, then October will be full of yummy pies, playing in the leaves and swim lessons, then November with Thanksgiving after which she can pop right out and we can enjoy Christmas with her. Perfect!

A few cute things

A few cute phrases I don't want to forget.


"When I grow up I want to be a teacher, because then I can help everyone learn stuff, thats what I really really want to do"

"Mom that bird is carrying 'nectarine' from flower to flower"

"I think Heavenly Father hears our prayers with his really big ears!"


"2 Today!"

"I'm nake nake" (Naked)

The Sweetest Things

I am sure every mother has those moments when she wonders what the heck she is doing with her kids...I feel like I have been having those too often recently. All my ideals and goals when I was first pregnant with Quinn compared to the reality of having two little ones with a third on the way is humbling to say the least.  But once in a while you get those moments that give you a glimpse into the sweetness of those little spirits, that reassure you that you are indeed on the right track.

At dinner last night Quinn looked over and said "is anything the matter Mum?" Nothing was but I thought it was sweet of him to ask

I dropped a necklace yesterday and it broke clean in two. I cried! It was a necklace that meant a lot to me. James came over and gave me a big kiss and a hug. Thanks buddy! He has also started this habit of putting his hand gently on your shoulder and looking at you with his grave little green eyes as if he as trying to convey many words of wisdom and comfort. Sometimes he will even whisper a thing or two.

I was also amazed to see James take my bowl this morning and put it in the dishwasher.

Quinn decided to sing a song to the baby as I was telling him she could probably hear us. I asked him what song he wanted to sing and he picked "I Am a Child of God". He then sang the song to my belly so sweetly.

There are more but I can't remember any right now. I am so glad for my two little boys!
