23 Weeks

This pregnancy is going by so fast, but yet so slow. April could not come soon enough. Everything is looking good and baby girl is growing like a weed. Nate and I had a difficult time deciding on a name for Reese and this little girl is no different, who knows when we will decide on a name for our next little angel.  This pregnancy is not a whole lot different, I have gestational diabetes again, so watching what I eat is always fun. Cravings this time around have been soda pop and chips (all in moderation of course). Baby girl is measuring big, which Reese never did, so hopefully I will make it to my due date April 25, with an average size little girl =). Below are a few pictures of baby girl, me at 6 months, and the fabrics I chose for her nursery bedding, I cannot wait to see the finished product.

I do not like the average nursery bedding, so with Reese it was teal and mustard yellow and with this baby girl its purples and oranges =)

23 1/2 weeks, I feel so much bigger this time around

baby girls profile, she is a stubborn one too so the ultrasound tech. has had a difficult time getting decent pictures =)

I love the holidays, although Nate can be a bit of a bah humbug, he hung in there this year with lots of family gatherings and gifts (and believe it or not he actually filled my stocking with nice gifts, just like I wanted).  Reese was not quite sure what to think of Santa this year, she did not cry, but she definitely would not take her eyes off of him.

Christmas was a blast this year, Reese was so much fun to watch, and she loved opening presents =). She was very spoiled and so far has loved playing with all of her new toys. We made it over to the West Side to spend a short time with boy my mom's side of the family and with my dad's side of the family and then made it back to Spokane to spend time with Nate's family on Christmas Eve. I apologize in advance for the amount of presents, it was just hard to pick through them.

So excited for her yearly Christmas ornament for Grammie!

Minnesota for Thanksgiving

We ventured away from family this year and went to Minnesota to visit the Potter family for Thanksgiving. Needless to say it was quite the vacation. Travelling with a 20 month old is definitely not relaxing.  We had a great time and it was so good to see Mike, Amberly, and Finnley.  We visited the science museum, I went to my first NHL game, and visited the Mall of America. It was a great yet exhausting trip.  Of course Nate and I are terrible at taking pictures. Here are a few!

So excited Reese actually fell asleep for a little bit before Thanksgiving dinner

Thought the dinosaurs were "horseys"

NHLgame (Minnesota Wild Vs. Colorado Avalanche)

Nate was so proud of the picture he colored

Reese amazed by the Mall of America

Reese is going to have a little sister!

Yay for little sisters! While this pregnancy has been quite different, there is another little girl in the making for the Stultz household. This little bundle of joy will be joining us at the end of April and we couldn't be more excited.  I always thought that I would either have two girls or two boys so having Reese first I kind of thought we would have another girl. As much as Nate wanted a little boy, he is happy to have another girl too =) (at least he says its okay).

Reese is growing like a weed and becoming quite the little pistol. Her and Nate butt heads already, I can only imagine how it is going to be when she is a teenager.  For the most part, Reese is still a pretty easy going little girl and still sleeps like a champ. She usually sleeps from about 8:30-9:00ish and then takes a two hour nap or so in the afternoon. Currently Reese loves to color, read books, pester the pets, help clean, watch Caillou, and brush her teeth. She is such a joy! Here are a few pictures over the last couple of months
