10 months old

kenzie jordyn hanners 

I cannot believe you are already 10 months old. Time has flown by. In two short months you will be ONE. what the heck.
You are crawling and pulling yourself up on everything. You also bump your head quite a lot in the process. You love crawling around and getting into all the toys. You make lots of messes for mama to clean up, but at least you are happy while making them.
You slept from 8pm all the way until 6am last night, yahoooo! I think you got tired of crying at 3am because mommy won't feed you at night. My favorite thing is when you wake up and Aubree and I walk into your room, you have the biggest smile on your face when you see your sister. You love her so much!
You are definitely hitting that stage where you no longer want to wear a headband... whyyy??? I love headbands and I want you to always keep one on. I will just continue on with the struggle.
I totally forgot about this stage but for the past month or so you have been in the {I don't want to lay still while you change my clothes or diaper phase.} woo and it's a tough one! I have tried every toy to keep you still but nope!
Most of all, you light up my life. You are such an amazing baby girl and I can't wait to see what our future will be like. Keep on smiling and know that mama loves you!

My personal goal

Losing weight after baby number 2 is so much harder plus all the extra skin (yay!). I am setting a goal for myself to lose my last 6 pounds before my birthday November 16th. About a month ago I started eating really healthy and I lost 10 pounds, but then started eating all that junk again (ugh!). Luckily I didn't gain it back, but still! I have been working out a lot at the gym. I am stuck at home this week because the babes have been sick so they cant go in the gym daycare and I also have had a cold. I've been doing a lot of running on the treadmill and I'm starting to add the x-bike cycle class into my routine. I wish I had a personal trainer to show me way more machines there but I don't right now. (MAYBE... a birthday present... Sean.....) My biggest downfall with eating is 7oclock, 8oclock, 9oclock, 10oclock. lol I love me some sweets at those hours.

First, I am going to start with switching all my drinks to water. I rarely drink soda or juice but whenever I go out to eat.. i'll get a water instead. I realllllly need to start drinking a lot more water especially because I am still breastfeeding Kenzie. I also need to re-do my recipes with healthier, less-fattening meals.

I am currently at 150 lbs. Before I got pregnant with Aubree I was 144 and I lost all that weight and when I got pregnant with Kenzie I was exactly 144 again. My first goal is to get back down to 144. Then set my next goal for 135. It's going to be super tough for me. I LOVE candy, sweets, fruit snacks, coke slurpees.

I am going to continue to update as I go along!

Dinner tonight is a healthy soup! Lots of veggies, beans, chicken :) mmmm!

Fun stay-at-home-mama!

Over the past few days I have really been trying to look into ways to be a fun stay at home mom. Miss Aubree is a very busy child and needs more fun things to do. She is super tired of her toys (yes, I have rotated them). I want to incorporate a story time in the day, craft time, outside play, etc.

Yesterday I grabbed some leaves from outside and we put the leaf under the paper and crayon-ed it onto the paper. Well, I did all the work but she enjoyed coloring all over the paper and asking mommy to draw things like stars, hearts, triangles, diamonds, mamas car (lol).

Today I am about to make some playdoh! I like that its homemade (cheaper) and if she were to eat it she'd be fine!

I would loveeee some more ideas for projects to do! I also want to do some sort of shape sorting. She LOVES shapes! I also want to start teaching her colors, she knows the color purple very well lol. Everything is purple to her.

Thank you! I plan on blogging more! :)

38 Weeks +1

How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain: 31 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Maternity jeans. I wear lots of pre pregnancy tank tops and gaucho pants, leggings, and skirts :)
Stretch marks? nothing yet (eeeeee!)
Sleep: Not so amazing anymore! Right now I cant sleep because i'm sick or its because you pee a thousand times at night, or you just cant get comfortable with a bowling ball on your belly.
Best moment this week: I went swimming at my grandparents this past weekend and it was very relaxing and nice!

Miss Anything? Having my body to myself!!! I want a margarita... I want to be able to breathe... I'd prefer to have no more heartburn :) Movement: Yep.. she is not nearly as active as miss Aubree was. (yaaaay)
Food cravings: Umm, craved a salad the other day. Candy of course... cheese stuffed crust pizza!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Gender: Girly girl!

Labor Signs: Unfortunately no :( I was having a bunch of Braxton hicks the other day but they have pretty much stopped. 
Symptoms: tired :)
Belly Button in or out? Definitely OUT!! I have one of those pop out belly buttons that shows through all my shirts lol. ugh! I want my innie back lol!
Wedding rings on or off? I can still wear it but I haven't been. It gets uncomfortable by the end of the day.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I would say both :)
Looking forward to: meeting my baby love! I cant wait to hold her and kiss her! I wanna know what she looks like.. I am beyond excited to meet her :)

Baby Items I want!

So I basically have everything for my new baby girl! I have way TOO many clothes and I can make all the accessories!
So here is my list of things that I am going to buy and a few things I really want and hope I will end up buying lol!
I don't know why but I am such a planner and like to have things organized and planned out, that's why we have this post :)
First thing:
InStep Safari Tandem Jogging Stroller
So happy that this isn't side by side because I would only use it for walks. This one I can use for everywhere! Love!
InStep Safari Tandem Jogger
Next thing:
Beco Gemini Baby Carrier
This has such amazing reviews and it can hold children forever basically. This would be nice to carry Aubree sometimes when I can't use a stroller lol. But, I want one so I can lug baby #2 around easier.
Product Photo
Last thing:
Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Diaper Bag
I LOVE how big this is and that you can wear it as a backpack!
Obviously I am trying to find a used one because I don't want to spend 180$ on a diaper bag... so Ebay is my friend :)
I will cross them off my list as I go!
Feel free to DONATE to my wants :)
<3 Whitney
