Teething is the devil

Seriously, it seems like Sophia has been teething non-stop for the last couple of months. One molar is all the way through, now the other 3 are trying to cut. On top of that, she is cutting all 4 canines! She is a drool factory! Maybe we will get a break for a little bit before she decides to get her 2 year molars. But by then I bet her little sister will be starting to get teeth :)

Oh the joys of being a mommy!

I know, I know

Since becoming pregnant, I just can't seem to stay motivated with my blog. I'm tired beyond belief, not sure how much is from pregnancy and how much is from chasing a very busy toddler all day. Probably 90% toddler and 10% pregnancy :) Sophia definetely keeps me on my toes, especially with how hot it has been. We can't do much since we are stuck inside most of the day. Hopefully once it cools down, we can go play at all the parks in town and go for more walks.

She has become a lot more verbal in the last month or so. She still doesn't have a ton of words but her two favorite at the moment are "hot" and "up" along with "mama" and "dada". A few of her other words are "crack-ca" (cracker), "coo-coo" (cookie), "mmmm" (milk) and "nigh-nigh". I'm sure there are others I am forgetting but that's what we get out of her at the moment. She is still doing great with her signs, she is such a smart girl. She also has the memory of an elephant, the girl doesn't forget anything. I have mentioned to her a few times that there is a baby in mommy's tummy and every time I say anything about the baby, she reaches over and rubs my belly :) I love it.

Speaking of the baby, this pregnancy is literally flying by. I will be 20 weeks on Friday! It needs to slow down just a bit, I'm not sure if I'm ready to embrace two under two just yet. We had planned on being "team green" and not finding out the gender but I just couldn't do it. We went and had an elective ultrasound done a couple of weeks ago and found out that Sophia will have a littler sister!! I am so excited. I wanted her to have a sister so badly. I can't wait for them to meet, and hopefully become the best of friends.

As of right now we are planning on the girls sharing a room so we have been brainstorming on how we will rearrange the room to fit both cribs and all the toys and whatnot in one room. We want to keep the 3rd bedroom a guestroom for now. That is if we don't move before the baby comes. We are kind of looking right now but it's one of those if we find something and sell our house great, if not that's fine too. We'll see.

Here's another bump pic, this one is from last friday, 19 weeks

When I went to the OB yesterday, he informed me that I am carrying this baby super high just like I did with Sophia. Great, just waiting on the reflux to kick in any day now! I had it so bad with Sophia since she was so high and I'm definetely not looking forward to that.

Anyway, here are a few pics from the last couple of months since I've been slacking...
