I just love Christmas time! And it has been especially fun this year with Molly as she starts to really get into things. Such a joy to live your childhood again through your own kiddos.

It is also the last Christmas as a family of 3! Eek! That sounds crazy. In 3 short months we will have another family member so we are trying to really enjoy all the holiday festivities and good family time we have now with just M. Next year will be very special with the baby's first Christmas but there will never be another year where its just our little family of 3. Soakin it up!

I made a Christmas Activity list this year with some ideas of fun things to do together. So far we are progressing through the list quite nicely.

We have had so much fun doing all of this and more!

And of course...our visit to see Santa Claus! She did so good this year. She told him what she wanted for Christmas and that she has been good (ish). ; ) And she smiled for the picture...she just wasn't looking at the camera. Something to work on for next year!


Merry Christmas from The Vincents! We wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.

Bumpdate: 24 Weeks

Does it feel like the weeks are flying by? It totally does. Starting to get a little stressed about all that needs to happen before this baby comes.

2014-12-03 16.24.57

How far along? 24 weeks and 3 days. Midwife says I am measuring right on track and still set for a due date of March 22nd.

Baby Fruit/Veggie Size: Long as an ear of corn, weighs just over a pound

Total weight gain: 14 pounds

Maternity clothes? Yes. So much yes. I am glad I am pregnant in the winter time...I am loving being able to layer.

Sleep: Generally pretty good. Was fighting a cold so had lots of coughing that was waking me up and I still have to get up at least once to pee.

Best moment this week: Thanksgiving feast! Nothing is better than eating a big Thanksgiving meal in very comfy stretchy maternity leggings.

Miss Anything? I miss not feeling big and clumsy. Went running at the gym and felt like a giant heavy whale.

Movement: This kiddo is constantly moving around...non stop. Kicks, jabs, rolls, hiccups etc.

Food cravings: Sandwiches.

Total Aversions: Nada

Gender: Its a surprise! I bounce back and forth on what I think it is. Right now I am thinking girl.

Labor Signs: No

Looking forward to: Christmastime! Its our last Christmas with just Molly and a being a family of 3.
