Merry Christmas!

We've had a jammed packed couple of days full of family, fun, and celebrating the birth of our Savior. I hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday!

First Haircut!

Well, it finally happened. I was putting it off even though she recently has disliked wearing a hair clip and has to keep brushing hair off her face. I was also super nervous that she wouldn't be able to sit still, but she did great! We went to the Yellow Balloon in Studio City, and they are amazing with kids! She needed to sit on my lap, but once they distracted her with a basket of toys, she didn't even notice what was going on. The lady styled her hair with two little bows, and when Leah looked at herself in the mirror, she shouted "Yay!" and clapped her hands. She then immediately asked for popcorn and sat nicely while I was able to snap a couple pictures. I'm still getting used to the cut though, because she looks so much older!

Thank you, Leah, for being such a good girl!

A Glimpse of the Week

So excited to see Minnie Mouse!

We finally got confirmation... We're having a GIRL!

Have a great weekend!

Pizza Making!

We had such a fun weekend filled with swimming classes, birthday parties, and pizza making! Our good friends own Tomato Pie Pizza Joint and so graciously put on a little pizza making class for a couple of their son's little friends. They got to play with dough, put toppings on, attempt to toss it, and eat the final product! The adults had a ton of fun too. Leah continues to talk about it a couple days later.  Hopefully, we'll get to do it again! Thanks Tomato Pie!

Pregnancy...Round 2

A lot of people have asked me how pregnancy is the second time around. I mentioned here that physically, I was more nauseous and tired the first trimester into early second trimester. Mentally, it has also been a whole different ballgame.

After going through the experience of pregnancy once and now having to keep up with a toddler, it has actually been really hard to soak in the fact that I am pregnant. I have yet to take a picture of my growing belly. I have yet to think of any names besides the ones Matt suggests {he has been diligently keeping a list of potential names he likes in his phone}.  I have yet to do any type of nursery preparation besides posting a few pins on Pinterest.  With Leah, I wrote in my pregnancy journal, and organized all my sonogram photos by week. With #2, you'll find sonogram photos on the kitchen counter, in my bag, on the desk, etc. Then, I walk past a mirror and see my belly or feel little kicks and rolls and am reminded that I have this amazing little human being growing inside me. I feel guilty that this pregnancy hasn't received the same amount of attention as the first one, but there is no doubt that the amount of love we have for this tiny baby is already immeasurable. 

For mothers going through pregnancy again, how has the second {or third or fourth} time differed from the first one for you?

Over the Holiday...

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend with nice full bellies. I definitely ate my fair share plus more! Good thing I have an excuse to eat for two! We spent Thanksgiving with both families, and Leah was in heaven. She loved playing with all her cousins, and I could hear her squeals and giggles from a mile away. I love spending time with our families, and am truly grateful that they all live close by.

Saturday, we had a little party for Leah's birthday at Amy's Playground. We invited Leah's closest little friends, and Amy's Playground was the perfect venue. They pretty much do everything for you, and all I had to worry about was providing drinks and paper supplies for the parents. It was completely stress free, and I was able to concentrate on the guests.
