Mommy's Little Helper

Having two kids under the age of two is going to be a piece of cake, thanks to the little Mother's Helper I have at home:

He sweeps up after himself...

...feeds himself

...helps Mommy bake cupcakes....

...and does his own laundry...

Isn't he just hands-down the cutest little helper you've ever seen!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Whether you're Irish or not, we hope you had a great time celebrating St. Patty's Day :-)

Now if you'll excuse me, my husband just walked through with a 6-pack of beer for him and a box of popsicles for me, so any words I had planned to type will have to wait for later .... mmmmmmm, popsicles.....

Halfway there!

Last Monday marked my 20th week of pregnancy. For you non-preggo types, that's the halfway point, as most typical pregnancies are 40 weeks long. I cannot believe I'm now closer to the end than the beginning - I have no idea where the time went!! So now, as I'm writing this at 21.5 weeks pregnant, we're now counting DOWN to the day we meet our little girl, as opposed to counting UP to the date.

We've been busy, still getting the house in order, painting, light construction and updating. And one of the rooms in desperate need of paint is the nursery. It was a gawd-awful shade of banana peel yellow (I wish I would have taken a picture of it in all its hideousness). And I just couldn't look at it any longer, especially since we had the furniture all in and set up. So last weekend, while Erik was in Miami on business (rough life, huh?), I got ambitious and decided to paint. And I have to admit, it was a little nerve-racking -- it's definitely AQUA. Really, really aqua. But now that I'm over the shock, I love it.

It's serene and calming and I can't wait to see how it looks with Baby Girl's bedding, which is on backorder until May (boo). The nursery is still a work in progress, obviously, and there are a ton of half-finished projects (like the paper mobile hanging above the chair) that'll keep me busy for the next 18.5 weeks. But it's getting there, and I'm loving it. Now it just needs a sleeping, beautiful little girl :-)

Because I've had a couple of requests from friends far away or those I may not see on a regular basis, here's a 20/21 week belly shot. I'm enjoying my pregnant belly much more this time, with Graham I carried much lower and wider, aka "not so cute or flattering". This time around, my bump is higher and definitely protrudes more, and I'm having fun looking pregnant this time around!

So here's hoping the last half of the pregnancy goes as smoothly (and as quickly!!) as the first half did
