I picked up this gingerbread house on clearance before Christmas and Grace and I had a great time putting it together, It took some finangling and one broken wall but they gave us a bunch of icing so it worked. Then she and Aaron had a blast eating the candy off!
We are also planning Grace's birthday party. I can't believe she is turning 3! My sweet first born is getting so big and articulate. We are planning a joint birthday party at Bouncing off the Walls an indoor bounce house place with a little girlfriend of Grace's who is turning 4. We went there a few times with playgroup during their 'open' bounce time, and decided to split the cost since our daughters birthdays are so close together and have the same friends. It should be fun.
I finally am posting some belly pictures!!! I am 23 weeks along and hadn't taken any belly pictures of this sweet girl growing until tonight! Another few more weeks and I will be in the third trimester. This pregnancy has been pretty easy compared to the other two. I am starting to feel the heaviness of pregnancy I suppose. In the mornings my joints are creaky and I have my mattress topper on the bed which is great. Still not a lot of heartburn or gas which is so great. Today I did start to feel tired and took a shower when I put the kids down, then tried to take a nap. It was great because both kids got great naps. I have been working on transition Aaron to one long nap a day and today he did pretty well. First this morning he slept straight through until 8am, no early morning fuss (he always wakes up on the wrong side of the bed), and he did wake up after an hour at nap time but then I settled him back down for another hour!!! WooHoo!
