Week 28!

Twenty Eight weeks down!!! I'm finally in my third trimester and I am thrilled to be this much closer to meeting my little Laney-girl. I had a doctor's appt this morning and all is well. Her heartrate was a beautiful 150 bpm. Outside of terrible back pain, I'm doing good as well though sadly, I've gained another 3 lbs. That makes my weight gained to date 19lbs. I had only wanted to gain up to 25 this time. That's not going to happen. Oh well. I lost it once and I can do it again. 82 days to go!

95 Days to Go! So much to do!

Wow!!! I only have 95 days left to prepare for Miss Laney's debut, and that's if she were to come on her due date. There's so much to do and not a lot of time left to get it done. This month is just rolling on by and I expect next month to do the same. The next few weekends will be fairly busy with holiday parties, Christmas, and New Years. Then, in January, we have a little ski trip planned to Banner Elk. Of course I won't be skiing but the time I will get to myself will be much needed since my life is about to change dramatically. Being a mommy of two is going to be much different than a mommy of one I believe. I barely have any time to myself now so I really need to take advantage of what freedom I have left! I also need to take advantage of the time I have left to be with just Jareth. I hope he accepts his sister well. He isn't used to sharing mom and dad with anyone. He is pretty easy going and change doesn't seem to affect him too much, but then again we're talking about another human being in the house!
What do we have left to do to prepare for Laney? Lots. I still don't have her bedding made yet. I found the fabric here at Carousel Designs. The bedding is fairly expensive there but I can order the fabric and my grandmother has offered to help make it. I am starting to waver a little on my fabric choice though. I'm thinking of changing the lilac and green damask to a black and white damask with the same purple trim. I'm feeling very drawn to black and the mobile and lamp I made have black in them. I did pick out a paint color though. It's called Crocus by Benjamin Moore. Its a beautiful purple and goes great with the bedding. You can see it here. We clearly have to get to work on the nursery asap. Another thing we have to tackle is the closets. As I've said before, Jon uses the closet in the nursery. He is working on a plan to take better advantage of the closet space in our bedroom. I hope it works because we could use a lot more space! I don't know how we are going to fit two wardrobes in that tiny closet, but I have faith in the hubby. He will figure it out....He has to!
I also hope to have a shower for Laney. There hasn't been any talk of it yet, but I'm sure after the holdays it will be brought up. If not I may just plan my own! Mom and I have already bought a lot of clothes for her but there's still more things we need. We have a lot of boy stuff and I'd like Laney to have plenty of girl things! 
What else is there? I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting about but I will just have to take it one item at a time. The closet may come first! Wish us luck!

Laney Girl Update

My appointment on Tuesday went great. I passed my glucose test and Laney is doing growing perfectly. She is still measuring about a week ahead which is fine with me. I'd rather have her a few days early than a few days late. She weighs in at almost 2lbs putting her in the 60th percentile. Last time she was in the 90th! She is in frank breach position but I was assured she still has plenty of time to move to where she needs to be for her grand enterance. It was quite funny seeing her little feet up by her face. I wish I were that flexible! I'm feeling good. I did gain 5lbs since my last visit. I blame Thanksgiving vacation of course. The only problems I've had are headaches and restless legs. I had both with Jareth also. I'm glad to say however that the heartburn hasn't been as bad this time around. I can't believe I'm 25 weeks along! It has absolutely flown by this time around! I hope the next couple of months go by just as fast. Then everything can slow down. I can't wait to see my little Laney!

So much to tell!

I haven't been doing a good job of writing lately. There's just been so much going on. Here's a re-cap of the last months events.


For Thanksgiving this year we went to Panama City with some of my family. Going to Florida for Thanksgiving was a tradition my grandma started in 2004. First we went to Destin, where Jonathan proposed on the beach : ), then the next two years we went to Navarre. That's if I'm remembering correctly. It seems like there was another trip to Destin somewhere in there...hmmm.... Anyhoo, that tradition stopped when my grandmother passed away in 2008.
When my aunt Dana called and asked if we would be interested in going back this year I was thrilled. Not only did I need a little sunshine but I was really happy to do something that I know my grandma loved to do with her family. And we had a wonderful time!
We couldn't have asked for better weather and the condo we all stayed at was beautiful. It was right on the beach with a huge balcony that spanned three rooms. Every room had a bathroom which was really nice and it slept up to 11 people. It was really nice.
Jon, Jareth, and I were the first to arrive so we had a full first day there. After unloading and a little unpacking we got in our bathing suits and went to the beach. Once Jareth's feet touched the sand, it was all over! He LOVED it! We couldn't keep him from rolling around in it and throwing it everywhere. Needless to say we were all pretty sandy every time we left the beach. I was really glad he liked it so much. He got super excited everytime I asked him if he wanted to go outside and play. He would point from the balcony and say "ocean!!!" He has always loved the water.
We cooked our Thanksgiving meal which comprised of two turkeys, a small ham, what seemed like a dozen dishes, and two desserts. And of course Jon made egg nogg. It was yummy! We also went out to eat a few times. My favorite place was Hunt's Oyster Bar. I think it was Jon's favorite too. He had 3doz oysters. I had crab legs and maybe one or two oysters.
We had a great time with our family. It was us, poppy, chad and Dana with the kids, and Shane and Cheri with Jake. It was a great group of people. I really enjoyed it and hope we get to do it again. Here are a couple of photos from the trip.


My Beautiful New Ride!

We've been talking about a needing a new family car since we found out we are expecting. We really wanted a third row SUV. Between two adults, two kids, and a dog we can use all the space we can get. But a van is out of the question. I'd like to think of myself as a modern soccer mom ; ) My dream car has been the Buick Enclave ever since the first time Jon had to drive one home from work. It's so sleek and pretty, not to mention spacious and comfortable. But it's a luxury SUV and we couldn't find one in our price range. We also really liked the GMC Acadia. That's actually what we drove to Florida this year. We had all but decided on getting one until we got a phone call. Our great friend, JP Moser, who works in car sales at Enterprise called and told us he had a sweet Enclave that they were running a deal on. But it was going to sale fast so we had to make a quick decision. So after crunching some numbers and looking at photos of the vehicle online we took the plunge. We met JP at a Waffle House in Cookeville at 8:30pm to do the paper work and exchange keys. Goodbye Tina! You were amazing but it's time to move on. I am now the proud owner of a gorgeous, white Buick Enclave that I think I'm going to name "Edward."

Crafting, Simple Flower Mobile

This was a very simple project, which is what I'm all about! I didn't take pictures of the process but I will give you a quick recap of what I did. I bought three packages of silk flowers in different colors and sizes and a bridal headband from Hobby Lobby. I already had the scrap booking decals and needle and thread at home. I measured out four different lengths of string and cut three of each size. I knew I wanted a cascading effect. Then, using a needle I threaded the flowers onto each string spacing them out. I had to make a stitch in each flower at the place I wanted it on the thread to make it stay put. Then I added little sticky back rhinestones to some of the flowers and sewed each strand onto the head band. Easy as instant pudding! Just be careful not to tangle the strands up. They can be difficult to separate. Here it is!

Crafting, DIY Ribbon Lamp

I've started on Laney's nursery! It's a small space so I'm a little limited on what I can do and how much furniture I can put in there. Right now the furniture consists of the crib, changing table, and a little window table. There's also a large quilt rack on the wall that has some of her clothes hanging off of it but that isn't staying in there. She is using Jareth's crib and changing table and the little table was my grandparents so, so far we haven't bought any furniture for her except for the bassinet in our room. I did update the little table with a can of silver spray paint though. I wonder how my grandmother would feel about me painting her antique table silver... I also added a little decoration to it and the crib using scrapbooking decals.
Yesterday, after looking at Pinterest, (my new obsession) I decided I needed a craft day. I had been wanting to upcycle an old lamp shade for Laney's room and make a flower mobile that I had seen on the craft and DIY boards. Three hours and a trip to Hobby Lobby later, Laney had a new ribbon lamp for her pretty room. I decided to take photos of the process. It was quite easy!
It was cheaper to buy 6" cuts of fabric than spools of ribbon. I only spent $2 on the whole project!

Cut fabric into strips and remove fabric from lamp shade. I left the boning around the top and bottom for more support.

I found it easier if I cut the liner out first.

Tie at either top or bottom depending on the look you want. I ended up cutting the ties down and stuffing them in the top for a cleaner look.

Edge of fabric will be rough. Use ribbons if you want it cleaner.

I threaded the tulle through the ribbons to keep it in place and tied it into a bow in the front.
All Done!

I'm thankful for the people who raised me. Their love, discipline, and even their mistakes molded me into who I am today. There are so many people that are responsible for me.
I'm thankful for my parents.  They love me more than anyone possibly could. They watched me grow and took care of me and guided me through life.
I'm thankful for my brother and sister. They are the ones I share my favorite childhood memories with. They know me at my best and at my worst and love me anyway.
I'm thankful for my husband. We've stood the test of time and grown up together. We test each other and we make mistakes but our love has proven to be unconditional. He gave me my greatest gift in life. He made me a mother.
I'm thankful for my son. Being a mother is my biggest accomplishment and I know I will never surpass it. Jareth is literally my night and day. He's shown me how big my heart can be and that the most important things in life are found in your home.
I'm thankful for my daughter. I've only met her through her tiny nudges and I've only seen  her via ultrasound but Laney has already given me such joy and happiness. I am grateful to have a daughter.
I'm thankful for our furbaby, Jack. Since he was a puppy he has been the most loving dog anyone could ask for.
I'm thankful for my friends. I deem myself to be very lucky in this department. I have some of the best people in the world to call my friends, people I can call at the drop of a hat and they are there for me in a second. They never judge me but when they need to they aren't afraid to tell me how it is.
And last but most importantly I'm thankful for a God who loves me so much that he sacrificed his own son so that I can have all the things that I'm thankful for today.

Laney is doing great!

The doctor says Laney is doing fantastic. She is in the 90th percentile for her weight at a whopping 1lb 1oz already! Healthy girl!!! She measured just a few days ahead, which she has done the whole time so maybe she will get here a little bit early. Since she is so big I have to have another ultrasound in 4 weeks. I'm not complaining! It's indescribable the amount of joy that fills my heart when I get to see her. This time she had her fingers in her mouth and she was yawning. She really seems to like her hands on her face. My guess is she will love the pacifier! I just can't wait to meet her and show her the world.
 I'm so in love with both of my babies! There's nothing I wouldn't do for them.

gest age: 21w2d
stats: hr 137
weight: 1.1 lbs
mom's weight gain: 11 lb
blood pressure 100/60
EDD: measured 3/16/12

Ladies and Gentlemen She Has a Name!

I am happy to announce our little girl's name is Laney Tomlyn Anderson! After a couple of months of debate we feel that this is the right name for our new bundle of joy. Other runners up were Lilliana and Remi. I've always loved the name Lilliana. I think I was about 13 when I first heard it and it always stuck with me. However, the name Lily is quite popular and trendy now and that's not what I want. Although I love my name, I hated that there were multiple Heathers in every class I had growing up. The other contender was Remi. Jon really liked that name and I was very close to going with it but it just didn't feel natural for me. Remi is a very cute name and I like that it's uncommon. (Although it is rising in popularity.) It just didn't feel natural to use. Plus I really have a thing for "L" names for girls. So, Laney it is. It's not too common but it's recognizable. And I think it flows well with Tomlyn. You may recognize that Lily Tomlin is an actress. Another reason not to go with Lilliana. I think the name Laney is sweet and fun and I can picture myself using it everyday. And I think is goes well with Jareth. So now I can say I can't wait for Laney to get here!

Little Girl

A couple of sweet photos of our little girl I wanted to share. In the second one she is covering her face with her hands. So cute!

Monkey turns 2!

In 45 minutes my little man will officially be two years old. I think back to what I was doing at this moment on the day he was born. The nurse was coming in to check and see if it was time to push yet. Jon was at my side rubbing my forehead. Mom and aunt Dana were taking photos and encouraging me. When I was 9cm dilated the nurse said it was time. I blinked and all of the sudden my labor room had magically transformed into a delivery room and 45 mintues later my beautiful son arrived. And my life as I knew changed forever.
How can it be that, that was two years ago? That tiny little 21 inch, 7 lb 15 oz baby boy is now over 2 1/2 ft tall and weighs about 32 lbs. He is running and talking and even starting to potty train. He hold a crayon like a big boy and understands humor that I didn't think he would get for years. My monkey is a big boy now. And I am a proud, proud momma.
Jareth's party was this past weekend. It was so much fun! It was Woody themed from Toy Story. It was in Athens at my in laws house. We had a bounce house in the yard and gave out cowboy hats, sheriff badges, and bandanas.  His cake was "Woody" themed and all the decorations were Toy Story. My friend, Brittany, even made an awesome character drawing with the face cut out so all the kids could take photos as Woody. And there were two suprise visitors. Jessie and Buzz made an appearance! Here are some photos of the big day.

The Nursery

I am dying to decorate the nursery now that we know we are expecting a girl! I've had an idea of what I want to do for a while now. Browsing through Etsy one day I came across these.
I immediately decided if we were having a girl she was going to have an Alice in Wonderland nursery. Nothing over the top and not "cartoonish" (which I can't stand). More storybook like. So I started browsing around and came across these beautiful drawings.
I fell in love. Oh yes, little miss yet to be named is going to have a wonderland of her own. And I'm really liking purple. I always imagined if I had a girl her nursery would be pink but I have to say purple has really grown on me. I love the purple shades on the teapot and the lotus in the drawings.
I want the room to be lavender and she will be using Jareth's white furniture. I want to put the three prints over the changing table and make a ribbon chandelier to put over the glider. The only trouble I'm having is with the bedding. I can't find a set that I like that won't break the bank. I really love this set that I came across but even if I could afford it, there is no way I'd spend $800 on baby bedding.

So I called my nana and she said she can help me make a set. I think I want a medium to dark purple fabric that has a pretty sheen to it like this set does. I want it to be very feminine but simple. No bold patterns or print on it. I don't think it will be too hard. I hope...
I can't wait to get started on this. There's only one issue we have; the house is on the market. If we happen to be in this house when she is born, and fingers are crossed that we won't, the guest room will become the nursery. What if we fix up the nursery and the house sells? What if we don't and we are scrambling come March to have it ready in time. It's very frustrating to sell a house. And we really don't want to be here when baby girl arrives. I'm sure we can make it work but we really want more space. For one thing the guest room is where Jon's closet is. My clothes take up all the closet space in our room and Jareth's does in his too. But as I said, fingers are crossed that we won't be here in March and I will get to decorate the new nursery in a big/ger new house!

I Won!

I'm on which is a community for pregnant women to get together and talk. They do contests every few weeks and give away anything from gift certificates to strollers. With the new What to Expect When Your'e Expecting movie coming out next year they are doing monthly contests for different prizes. I won the October prize for the best storyline, it's a free years supply of Dove hair products! They did a little feature on the site and I just recieve my huge box of products! So exciting. Here is the feature:

Meet the Next What to Expect Star of the Month!

It's time to congratulate another Star of the Month, who holds the title for October. Heather Anderson won the Best Storyline Giveaway (and a year's supply of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Hair System products) with the following post about her real-life pregnancy story:

"So I'm drying off after a shower and look at my belly in the mirror and get all warm and fuzzy about the life that I am growing inside me. Then I take a peek at the back: 'What is that on my caboose? Please tell me that someone drew a little squiggly line on my hiney with a purple pen in the middle of the night.'

Nope, it's definitely my first stretch mark. After mountains of Palmer's along with other elasticity-promising lotions, it finally happened. The sad part is that it is most likely only the beginning. I knew it would happen but hoped it wouldn't creep up on me until the last few weeks of pregnancy, like some of the other women I have spoken to. But with an extra 17 pounds on my relatively small frame, my skin just couldn't accommodate. I still have 14 weeks to go until my due date. That's a lot of time to gain more weight and accumulate more of these purple lines on my tush. I just hope they stay on my tush. Stay away from the belly you pesky bikini-haters! My new resolution is not to look at my rear in the mirror anymore. In her book, Belly Laughs, Jenny McCarthy warns about this. But I didn't heed her advice. No pregnant lady should ever look at her rear end in a full-length mirror. Unless you are a supermodel, of course. Those pregnant supermodels should be force-fed doughnuts every day."

Who's the funny lady behind the post? Get to know Heather here:
Which cast member are you most looking forward to seeing in the What to Expect movie?
I’m really excited to see all the ladies in the film work together. As a fan of My Sister’s Keeper, Vanilla Sky, andThe Sweetest Thing, I’m especially excited to see Cameron Diaz in her role. I know she will play the mom part with humor.
Which storyline can you relate to the most?
I feel like I can relate to both J.Lo’s and Elizabeth Banks’s characters. I had a hard time conceiving after experiencing a miscarriage with my first pregnancy. We were contemplating adoption and talking about fertility treatments when we surprisingly conceived our son. After I got pregnant I had it all planned out. No pacifiers, no bottles, a natural birth, etc. Well that all went out the window when delivery day arrived! I was induced and two hours in I begged for the epidural.
Will you plan a special night out to see the movie in May?
I plan to have a girls’ night out! I’m pregnant now and the baby is due in March, so May will be the perfect time to get my girlfriends together for dinner and a movie!
What about your romance with your partner is made for the movies?
My husband and I are high-school sweethearts. We were 14 and 15 when we started dating in a very small town. I followed him to college and we got married after graduating. We basically grew up together.
What are your favorite romantic comedy flicks?
Romantic comedies are great. You have to have humor in a relationship or it just doesn’t work. One of my favorite romantic comedies is How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. I also love The Sweetest Thing, which stars What to Expect’s own Cameron Diaz.
What about your pregnancy has been film-worthy?
Well, we are finding out today whether we are having a boy or a girl in a very special way. This morning I had the ultrasound tech seal the gender in an envelope. I’m taking it to a party store to have them open the envelope after I leave and put either blue or pink helium balloons in a sealed box. Then we are going to a field with a photographer and opening the box. I think that’s pretty film-worthy.
Which celebrity mom do you hope you’re most like once you’re a parent?
Jennifer Lopez seems to be doing it right. I rarely see her kids in the news, and when I do it’s quite apparent that she’s protective of them.
When did you know you were ready to become a mom?
When did I not know is the real question! I’ve always wanted to be a mom; it’s what I’m meant for. By the time I was nineteen I had a timeline all planned out. It showed when I was going to get married, graduate from college, buy a house, and have kids. Each milestone had a cute icon with the date I planned it to happen.
If you could ask any of the WTE movie cast members one question, what would you want to know?
I want to ask Joe Manganiello if he would be so kind as to send an autographed photo to my sister. She’s sort of in love with him.
Which cast member do you think you could be mommy friends with?
I think I could be good friends with Anna Kendrick. We are the same age, we both like theater, and she seems very down to earth. I mean the fact that I love Twilight has nothing to do with it.
Stay tuned for the next giveaway and a chance to become November's Star of the Month!

It's a Girl!

Here's the story! On wednesday I went to the doctor and ended up having an ultrasound. I'm only fifteen weeks but the tech said she could most likely tell the gender of the baby. I knew I wanted to do the balloon reveal so I told her if she could be certain I wanted her to seal up the answer in an envelope so I couldn't see it. She took a look and I covered my eyes and she said she was 99% sure. So I went with it! After the visit I took the envelope to Party City and asked them to open it after I left and put either blue or pink balloons in a box and seal it up. This morning we had Brittany Toomey, photographer and friend, meet us at World's Fair Park. She took photos as we opened the box and found out we are going to be blessed with a daughter. It was so special and I will never forget it.

Birth Plan

I guess I should start thinking about how I want to have this baby. With J, I thought I had it all figured out. But when it came down to d-day everything went opposite. I had wanted a natural birth for Jareth, no epidural and absolutely no induction. So much for that. When I went to my last appt I was so ready for my baby to be here and I was so miserably pregnant that all my planning went out the window at the mention of the word "induce." And after my pitocin was started and my water was broken and I was very quickly at 6cm I decided I'd much rather do this without all the pain. I lasted a whole 2 1/2 hrs without an epi. Jareth was here about 3 hrs later. And all I felt was the pure joy and excitement of bringing my son into this world.
I think this time around I would like to hold off on the induction. I would like to feel what it's like to go into labor naturally. But I will most likely get the epidural. I don't want it immediately because once you get it there is no getting up and doing things like going to the bathroom on your own, but eventually I do plan to get it. It was wonderful to munch on ice chips while watching the monitor and saying "oh, I'm having another contraction!" instead of "oh my god, oh my god, I'm never doing this again!!!" And it was wonderful not to feel that episiotomy. I also think Jon was relieved when I got the epidural too. I was a little bit of a mess.
Last time Jon, my mom, and my aunt were all in the room when the baby was born. I don't really have a preference on who is there and who isn't. I know it would be nice to just share the birth with my husband but my family was super supportive. Plus, I had people there to take photos and share the excitement with. It was a really good experience.
Other things. I'm definitely breast feeding again and I want to hold the baby as soon as she/he is born assuming there are no complications. I want to spend time with just the baby, Jon, and Jareth as soon as they say it's okay to let him come in to visit. I want to see the placenta this time. And again, no pacifiers or bottles! The baby needs to get used to me before anything else. I will change one thing, the amount of people I let visit at one time. I got a little overwhelmed at being stared out for the hours leading up to and after having the baby last time. Everyone wanted to be in the room and I thought I wanted them to be in there too but it was a little bit too much at one time. I think 3 visitors at the most is good.
I'm only 15 weeks along and don't even know if we are having a boy or girl this time around so my feelings may change in the next 25 weeks. But, I'm glad I'm already thinking about this stuff. And I'm glad I don't have a big list of do's and don'ts this time around. least not yet : )

We want you to vote!

Will Jareth get a baby brother or sister this spring? We hope to find out soon so tell us what you think!
Choose your answer to the right ------------->

"Every Pregnancy is Different"

I've heard it since I got pregnant with Jareth. Most women will tell you that each of their pregnancies have differed in one way or another and it's completely normal. Well this momma's second pregnancy is nothing like the first. With Jareth I had nausea for about a week I think. My skin was beautiful, my hair was thick and gorgeous, and I was pretty much all belly. I didn't gain weight until my second trimester. This time its just the opposite. I've already gained 6 lbs and I just look fat. I started wearing maternity jeans two weeks ago! Also, I'm breaking out like a 14 yr old and my hair is super dry. Oh, and I've been sooo nauseas! It's been awful. Let's just say I'm not exactly "glowing" this time around.
Part of me is hoping that these differences mean a girl is on the way. I've heard before that "boys give beauty and girl's take it away." I've had several dreams that we are having a girl and the baby's heartrate is much faster than Jareth's was which they say also means girl. But recently I had a dream that we were having a boy. Either way it will be great but I admit I would like one of each. Plus the chinese gender predictor says I should be having a girl. Hopefully we will find out next wednesday if they decide to do an ultrasound.
Although the symptoms are different this time around the feelings are the same. We are so happy to be blessed with another baby. We can't wait to find out if we are gaining another son or a daughter. Then the name game begins! By the way we are taking suggestions!

Here we go again!

That's right! Jareth is going to have a bouncing baby sister or brother this spring! We are 12 weeks and 2 days pregnant. My due date is March 19th. We are so excited! Our families and several friends know but we aren't planning to tell every one else until the second trimester which starts Sunday. I'm busting at the seams to tell the world; I've known since we were just 4 weeks along. I figure going ahead and posting it on here is pretty safe. I rarely write here anymore so I'm sure no one will be reading this before Sunday. Here's to another happy and healthy pregnancy!

I think it's time!

Jareth is now 20 months old and growing fast. I find myself missing his infancy and thinking about how far apart our kids would be if we got pregnant. Okay, I will be honest, it's more obsessing than "thinking." I have a chart....yes, you heard me right. One column has the month we would concieve followed by the month the baby would be due and finally how old Jareth will be when the baby is born. Yep, I'm officially ready. Jon, on the other hand, is a little hesitant. There is a lot up in the air right now. The house is for sale and we have no idea what we are going to do if or when it does sell. And there may be some movement with Enterprise over the next year. But, I say we just go for it! Wouldn't it be awesome if we didn't have to plan as much as we did with Jareth. I would love a suprise pregnancy. I'm still tired from trying for him!! So, I'm off birth control but we aren't making a big deal out of it. Hardly anyone reads this blog anymore so I feel pretty safe talking about our decision here. Only a few family members and friends know we want to try. I just don't want it to get to the point where I'm stressing about ovulation and taking a pregnancy test every single month. I enjoyed my pregnancy with Jareth, but I do want this one to be easier. Here's hoping!!!!

And yes, I would like a little girl although I'm not too picky. : )
