Who doesn't love the circus?

We took the girls to the circus and quickly remembered that you are never too old to have fun at the circus!

13 weeks and ultrasound visit

We finally had our first ultrasound last week! We had a few questions about little baby B that were soon answered. 
Having felt just plum awful for the last couple of months, I was convinced I was having twins or was much further along, both because I was so miserable, plus my belly is growing at a phenomenal rate. 
We took the girls with us so they could be able to share this event with us and see their new baby brother or sister for the first time. Once we got settled down for the ultrasound we got to see little baby B for the first time! We got some great pictures (which I'll post soon) and got to see him/her moving around. All of our questions got answered: I was 12 weeks 3 days (now 13 weeks), there was only one baby in there, and it was too early to find out the baby's sex. Oh! and little baby B looked just fine and healthy!
So, our official due date is August 26th which means working next year is going to be put off for a year while I stay home with the little muffin and get started on my Master's degree. 
We will be going back for our next ultrasound April 11th to find out if we are having a boy or girl. Can't wait!

Cool place to take the kids...

A couple of weeks ago, the girls got invited to a birthday party at Monkey Mania. It was a ton of fun! They have themed play rooms for the kids to play throughout; movie room, toy room, exercise room, arts and crafts room, a room with a large jumper, a room where you can shoot soft nerf balls and Mckenna's favorite, the dress up room and runway! They have open play times and it was super fun, so give it a try sometime!

Baby Kicks and First Tooth Fairy Visit

 I am now approximately 15 weeks along! We won't know for absolute certainty until our ultrasound on the 15th of this month. This week was a big surprise though when I felt little baby B moving around for the first time! Wed of this week, I felt little cupcake having the hiccups and then he/she joyfully woke me up at around 3 a.m. the next morning due to his/her acrobatics. I'm surprised to be feeling the baby this early, but maybe after already having two, I am a little more in tuned to differentiating between baby's movement and gas:)
Gracie has had a wiggly front tooth for a couple of weeks and Thursday it finally fell out! She had been waiting and waiting to be able to save it when it fell out but...when I saw her after school that day I immediately noticed it had fallen out and told her "Gracie! Your tooth came out!". She looked at me with huge  eyes, felt in her mouth and realized that she had never noticed it missing! Luckily the tooth fairy took a drawing of her tooth in replacement for the actual thing;)

New belly photos and missing tooth coming soon....
