Molly: 3 Years + A Princess Party

Last week my little baby girl turned 3 years old. I have no idea how that is even possible but it happened. And there was a party to help celebrate it!

Molly is SUPER into princesses. She has the Disney Princess Magic Clip Dolls and plays with them constantly. We have also been making our way through the Disney classics movies. She was even Belle for Halloween. So, a princess party it was!

We splurged on a "real deal" bounce house this year...finally outgrew the little toddler one. It was a HUGE hit! All the kids loved it and Molly was obsessed. She was very sad when we had to deflate it and return it.

I also scored all of the Disney Princess party decor at Dollar Tree! It was perfect and fit our budget. Then, as always, we added some DIY decorations as well (thanks again Laura!).

For dessert we had cupcakes, princess cookies (which were amazing) and I made Molly her own crown cake. Sugar high!

Lots of fun was had by all. We had a mix of family, Molly's kiddo friends and our good friends. Everbody came to celebrate and love on Molly. Lucky girl!

Bumpdate: 20 Weeks

Hello all! I am back with a bit of a bumpdate and some other fun info as to how things are going at 20 weeks along. Halfway there ya'll! So crazy.

2014-11-02 18.12.00

How far along? 20 weeks

Baby Fruit/Veggie Size: Length of a banana, weighing in at 10 1/2 ounces
Total weight gain: 10 pounds

Maternity clothes? Absolutely! I busted out the maternity clothes around 17 weeks. I am living in my maternity leggings..they are so comfortable! I also got my maternity box out of the attic from last time and have worn some of that. Maternity clothes are so much more comfortable! I am also sporting Chase's t-shirts a lot too.

Sleep: I am sleeping really well currently. I have to use a pillow between my legs to be comfortable but if I have that then I am set. I do have to get up at least once to go pee which is kind of annoying.

Best moment this week: Starting to feel some real movement and not just flutters. Chase isn't quite able to feel them yet but soon enough.

Miss Anything? Wine! I am starting to really miss a nice glass of wine. I was so sick feeling in the first trimester that it didn't sound appealing at all but now I really would like to kick back on the couch with a glass of red.

Movement: Lots of flutters, popcorn popping feelings. I have felt a few rolling movements and a couple tiny kicks.

Food cravings: Apples, I am loving apples right now (and Halloween candy).

Total Aversions: Nothing has been off limits come the 2nd trimester.

Gender: No idea...won't know until he/she is born. Surprise!

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: Lots of lower back/hip pain which I had with M so it was expected. Luckily I live with a chiropractor. : )

Belly Button in or out? In

Mood: Generally happy but I can have my moments. ha!

Looking forward to: Seeing our baby at the sono appointment this week! Can't wait!

The picture on the left is my 20 week bump photo with M. I kind of thought I was bigger this time around but I actually look a tad smaller. Who knew!
