3 Months In Living with a Toddler and Infant

Well, we made it through the first 3 months. And what an emotional roller coaster. It's a little crazy that Ana is now 3 months. Time has been crazy where some days it crawled along and others days zoomed by. Either way, it's been a learning experience and here's what I learned.

A Not So Natural Childbirth

So 2 1/2 years ago I posted about my childbirth experience with Emily. And it was a pretty "uneventful" experience. Everything happened as it should have. Well.... it has been the COMPLETE opposite with Ana. It was definitely a whole lot worse than with Emily. This just goes to show that every pregnancy and labor experience is different even with the same mother.

Last Post of 2015 (Christmas, 3rd Trimester Update, and Name Reveal!)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

We didn't do anything big this year because of #2, but we did do some things for Emily to make Christmas fun for her. I took today off as cook so I didn't make anything fancy to eat. Instead we concentrated on making sure Emily enjoyed opening her presents and playing with her new toys. And as she naps from the excitement this morning, I'm taking this time to give you guys an update on things since things will start to get really hectic once 2016 (!) arrives.

It's a HUGE Update!

Things are staying busy here at the Lyons' house. And as autumn has finally arrived (although I will miss summer), I figure I would do a summary of what has happened this past season since my last update in July.

And It's A.....

So I had my 2nd trimester ultrasound a couple of days ago. Which means it's the cool one where you see them take measurements of everything. We were really looking forward to this one. It's something David and I can enjoy together where I don't feel bad for taking him to an appointment where nothing really happens. Haha! To be fair, listening to #2's heartbeat is always great but my visits haven't been very long or interesting; which is a good thing because it means everything is normal. And normal is good!

The #2 refers to the fact that I am pregnant again! I actually announced it a couple months ago because I wanted to announce it on my birthday. A few have also gone by since I passed the first trimester, but I wanted to talk about it to update everyone. (Since I know you're all so curious.)

The New Home Sweet Home

So there's a good reason I haven't posted anything for a while (again). We were in the process of buying and selling homes! It was a whirlwind of prepping for showings, seeing houses and dealing with 2 closings within a month. It was a tad hectic here.

But Sue! You haven't been in your house for very long. Correct. We have lived at house for 2 years once we finally moved, but certain circumstances had us consider moving now.
