12 weeks

Hey my precious little lime...I can't believe you are already the size of a lime!! I hope you are staying strong and growing and developing well. You have so many milestones this will start bending your fingers and toes, clenching your eyes tight, and making sucking movements with your mouth. Those are all called Reflexes. You will also be able to feel me poking and prodding my belly to get you to squirm although I won't be able to feel you thing I can't wait for!!

Your sisters are so excited for you to come...mostly Chloe because Hailee still isn't quite old enough to understand what is going on. Chloe goes around telling everyone that she has a baby brother growing inside her Mommy's tummy! Right now we don't know if you are a boy or girl, but don't worry she won't be upset if you turn out to be a girl...she loves all babies!!

Keep growing healthy and strong my precious one! We love you so much!!


Here is my lovely belly at 12 weeks. Just as a land mark (because this is my first belly picture), you can kind of see the mole on my hip, that is where my belly started. It wasn't tight and tone because I've had two kids, but it was flat. So basically for twelve weeks I'm huge!!

Once upon a time there was a Fairy Princess and a Beautiful Flower

Any excuse to dress up is a great day for my kids and Halloween was no exception. We had a pretty mellow day, but there was definitely much anticipation by Chloe for the evening. After the girls got up from their nap I got them all ready and we headed out to make the rounds.

Every flower needs a little magical fairy dust kiss

and my Beautiful Flower

Our first stop was my Grami's house. Grami had surgery about four weeks before that so she was in her chair and couldn't answer the door, but Daddy to the rescue, was already there waiting for his girls to show up.

Our first door bell..."Trick or Treat"

My cousin Kerry Lynne was in town over Halloween and she brought her dog, Charlie, who was dressed as...what else, but a "Hot Dog".

Chloe and Charlie

Our next stop was Grandma and Grandpa's house (aka: Brian's parent's). By now I think Hailee had it pretty well figured out. She would just open the door and let herself in..."Tick o Teat"..."Tank Too".

Grandma and Granpa's house

Hailee thought she needed to eat every treat right as it went into the bucket

Our last stop was Grandma and Bapa's house (aka: Dawn's parent's). Bapa had a whole house full of guests and it was kind of overwhelming at first for the girls, but it worked. The only bummer thing was that my mom made dinner for anyone who was coming over and we were starving except everyone who was already there had already eaten and were ready to go Trick or Treating. Needless to say we lost and as soon as we walked in the door we turned around and walked right out to go Trick or Treating. It was a fun night though and the girls had a blast which is really all that matters.

In the end we decided that next year everyone will come to us if they want to see the girls...if not they can wait for the pictures. It's too much on them, they end up getting a late dinner and then get fussy because they are hungry and tired. Besides we have never spent a Halloween in our own house or Trick or Treating in our own neighborhoods. I think it's about time!! Hope your Halloween was Spooktacular!!!
