so precious!

Gabby has started to laugh.. it's the cutest thing!!  It's just a brief little chuckle but enough to make you cry because it's so adorable!  She is also starting to wiggle around and trying to roll - oh my she's growing too fast =)  Here are some new photos of my kiddos - they are so much fun!!

I was going to make this Gum Drop stuff a separate post but I'll just add it here.  I am going to start my weekly pregnancy quiz and post my belly photos {which I'm slightly embarrassed to do since I did just have a baby 3 months ago} but oh well!

How far along: 7 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: grrr.. I was 154 lbs at the doctor on Monday but this morning I was 152 lbs – I’m still up 14 lbs from my pregnancy with Gabby – my goal is to get back to 140 after this little Gum Drop! {yes, I did just share my weight again, I'm not 'proud' of it but I guess it's for a good cause!}
Maternity clothes: truthfully, I never stopped wearing some I had from Gabby because I was still too big to fit into my ‘old’ clothes - at this point I'm wearing them because my butt and thighs are too big, not my belly =)
Stretch marks: not from Gum Drop.. not yet.
Sleep: not that easy, mainly because I am up feeding Gabby and I've been having trouble getting comfortable.
Best moment this week: (a few things from 2 weeks ago!) being completely embraced by my coworkers when I was an absolute mess; seeing the joy on my husbands face when I told him about Gum Drop; knowing how excited our friends and families are for us; and #1 had to be seeing our Gum Drop, and seeing and hearing the heart beat!!
Movement: not yet.
Food cravings: chocolate milk and cheese curls.
Gender: my very first hunch was girl – but now I’m definitely on team blue.
Labor Signs: no thank you.. although they are all too fresh in my mind..
Belly Button in or out: innie – and I never took my maternity belly ring out from Gabby
What I miss: haha – I was just starting to enjoy all the things I missed when I was pregnant with Gabby – this will get redundant – but I miss running and I miss wine and I miss sleeping on my tummy.
What I am looking forward to: embracing this little baby with all my heart and accepting that this is God’s plan for our family; watching my belly grow, again!

I wish my belly looked like yours and I had a baby 2 months ago. :(
15 more pounds to go for me.

Adorable pictures of the kids, as always!
