Carving Pumpkins!

Delaney went to the pumpkin patch on her yearly field trip with her class yesterday. I couldn't take off to go so my mom went with her. She had a blast and brought back a great pumpkin for us to carve. She was really into it this year and had so much fun helping get the seeds out. She was really proud of her finished product!

Early Halloween Trip!

We went to the bass pro shop in Leeds tonight for a little Halloween fun. They had pictures, candy, and a parade. We went with Delaneys cousins and friend. The girls had a blast!

Being Silly

Just some pictures that I had on my camera and forgot to upload. I love the age Delaney is at right now; she is just so much fun. She has the cutest personality and always has a plan for what she wants to do. It's so much fun being her mom! I can't wait to meet Carter and see the relationship between them. Delaney is really excited about having a sister and I feel sure that she will be a great big sister.

Baby Carter Update- 24 weeks

How far along? 25 weeks on Thursday

Size of the baby? An ear of corn

Maternity Clothes? Yes! I am wearing maternity pants and jeans, but still normal shirts and dresses.

Weight Gain? Not talking about it.. I was up to 12lbs at my 20 weeks appt and then at my 24 week appointment it all fell apart. I'm just going to say I'm pretty sure something was wrong with the scale! Seriously though, even the nurse said she was pretty sure that something was off that day because everyone had gained lots that day :)

Stretch Marks? I had them with Delaney so I'm hoping to just not gain any new ones!

Gender? It's a GIRL!! Carter Rose Brizendine.

Movement? Yes! I am feeling her all the time now and can even see her moving some of the time. David has also been able to feel her move :)

Wedding Rings? On

Sleep? I have hit the bump and am not sleeping good at all right now. I feel like once I get used to the side sleeping maybe I'll get a few good nights in before Carter gets here!

Food Cravings? Nothing lately

What I Miss? Just sleeping good, and my wardrobe, but I'm feeling great for the most part.

Symptoms? I just have to use the restroom more than normal, but other than that I feel back to myself. I have also started having some Braxton Hicks contractions, but nothing major. I had these a ton with Delaney so I'm trying to take it easy when I start getting them and drink plenty of water.

Belly Button? In

Best Moment of the Week? David being able to feel Carter and just being able to feel her more in general. I'm also getting close to being finished with her nursery.

Picture is from last week so 23 weeks! Delaney had to be in the picture with her sister!

I have found a new love for crafting lately. I haven't really made anything to hard yet so what I have made has turned out pretty good. The first thing I made was a name sign for Carters room. I cover the canvas in burlap and painted the letters. Once I had that done I just hot glued everything else on. I thought it turned out pretty cute and it was not expensive.

The next thing I made was a burlap wreath for our house. We worked in the yard on Saturday getting the outside looking good so I wanted something cute for the door too! I saw this on a friends blog and decided to try it. I was really pleased with how it turned out and it was pretty cheap and not very time consuming. I
