Baby # 3 - 17 weeks

I was 17 weeks in this picture. I am 18 weeks, 4 days today.

  We have our BIG ultrasound this Monday!! You know, the one where they tell you if you are having a boy or a girl and measure baby all up and stuff.  I have a teeeny, tiiiny hunch that baby is a girl, but I was also 100% sure that Big Sis was a boy and Bub was a girl. So I'm not going to promise you anything. I will say that it would definitely be nice to finally guess right the third time around. 
 Hopefully all is well and baby is healthy. Ill letcha know next week!I We are so excited!!!

Things I love lately...Bub edition.

I love this boy because...he is learning to draw happy faces or "eye, eye, nose, happy" as he calls it, and is very proud of this.

 I love this boy because...of this. Not only is he hanging from my cupboard, but if you look close enough at that cute bum of his, his undies are backwards. And he wont change em around when asked. Its one of those 'pick your battles' type of things. Im just glad hes wearing them.

 I love this boy because...sometimes he does this. 
What you don't ever get the urge to chew on your toes??

I love this boy because...sometimes I find murals on my walls. 
  I'm just glad its chalk and not permanent marker.

I love this boy because...he does this when I am trying to take a decent picture of him.

I love this boy because...he would rather I take a picture of his orange M&M, and dirty hands (whoops) than his face.

I love this boy because...when I finally get a picture of him its a dandy. 
And those eyes...gosh those eyes!

 I love this boy because...he's mine pure and simple.
The end.

Scented applesauce and cinnamon ornaments

 You going to need applesauce and cinnamon for this. Thats it! Oh and some parchment paper and cookie cutters, but everyone has those right?

 Mix together 1/4 cup of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of applesauce. If the dough is too sticky to handle add more cinnamon. If its too dry, add more applesauce. Dump your mixed dough onto a piece of parchment or wax paper so it doesn't stick to your counter.

And flatten the dough, about 1/4 inch thick is perfect. We just folded over the parchment paper and smashed it down. We like the rustic look in our house. But you could use a rolling pin if your fancy like that.

Cut the dough into into shapes of your liking. This takes serious concentration.

But its also super duper fun.

Put them on a paper plate and make a hole in the top of each shape, we used a pencil for ours.  Leave on paper plate and put somewhere high where little people wont mistake them as cookies. Ornaments should be dry and ready to hang in about 4 to 5 days, depending on the thickness.

Enjoy! They smell amazing, and look pretty cute up on that tree. :)

Baby #3 - 15ish weeks

I thought I better get started on the baby pics, I'm falling behind already...
Fifteenish weeks.

I look like I'm about 24 weeks, I guess that's what happens when its your 3rd huh? Big sis was barely 7 lbs, Bub was 8 lbs so I wouldn't be that surprised with a 9 pounder this go around. Ok- maybe a tiny bit surprised. Bring it baby!

Here I am 4 days before Bub arrived.
Oh Lord have mercy.
