Yeah I know, I said that I was going to document my entire second pregnancy. Well, clearly the myths about the second baby are true. I don't have as many pictures of me pregnant. I didn't write in my "love mom" memoir book. And I'm sure the baby book is going to be just as much of a disaster lol!!!
We have been staying pretty busy and enjoying summer though! My last day of work was Wednesday and now we are just waiting for baby casey #2 to arrive. We are juggling some names around which is better than what we did last time. Poor C didn't have a name for three days and we had to go back to sign the birth certificate lol!!!!
I have been reading this book to her as often as I can. I'm not sure that she can fully comprehend what's going on but a friend of mine gave me this book and it sure is the cutest.
I have legit guilt about having a second baby. Although every one of my friends that has two children or more has assured me that it will be ok, I currently still feel bad for Charlee. I'm sure this will pass as soon as the little guy is born!
I am sad that this will be the last time that I am going to be growing a baby. My husband actually brought this to my attention (ahem thanks babe) and every night since, I have literally thought about it with tears in my eyes. Bittersweet.
I am actually shocked that I have been able to keep up with Charlee through out this pregnancy. Daily smoothies have definitely helped keep my energy going! Along with a supplement called "Multi Greens", that I haven't skipped a day of!
She is currently obsessed with her Daddy, which is a beautiful thing. Not to mention, perfect timing for when the new baby comes and will make my routine a little easier! I didn't have a close relationship with my dad growing up, so watching them love one another holds a special place in my heart. In the mornings before he wakes up and I'm not chopped liver yet, I get in my quality time ;)
Ok so the oily stuff.....This stuff is amazing!!!
I have applied this morning and night since the day that I found out that I was pregnant! I've also applied it when my belly started growing and got itchy!!! It is seriously the easiest recipe and works like a charm!
3/4 cup coconut oil
20 Drops of Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil
20 Drops of Young Living Gentle Baby Blend Essential Oil
20 Drops of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
Don't believe me? Here ya go....(I got the ok to post this lol)
The house is currently quiet due to a rainy day and a movie, so I'm going to go eat an entire pineapple, bounce on the ab ball, massage my ankles, and drink some red raspberry tea all while watching life time! Wish me luck!
