Size of Baby Brickner: A coconut, baby girl is growing & so am I! A sweet little girl at school the other day said, “wow, you look like you are going to pop”, it was the day after I got the favorite comment of pregnant ladies everywhere, “it’s gotta be any day now, right?”. No, actually five more weeks, thanks. 😉
It’s been a week full of sunshine for us, we have spent most of our afternoons outside soaking it all in! We unfortunately found a warm weather staple that Waverly does not love, she has an overwhelming fear of the ice cream man & is not ashamed to show it. If she even hears the music in a distance, she bolts to me, leaps in my arms, & will hide her face until I somehow convince her that he is gone. Part of me loves that she is scared of the random stranger in the truck, while the other part is seriously sad that I can’t go get one of those red, white & blue bomb pops (you know the ones, right?!).
While we were outside the other afternoon, the ice cream man couldn’t be heard, thankfully, Waverly was running after our dog & fell. She was pretty upset about it, & there was a small red mark, but she usually recovers pretty quickly so I figured this would be no different. That was until thirty minutes later, when she had to call everyone in my phone to tell them that “she had broke her leg”. My husband was lucky enough to get a ten minute voicemail about it, including a description of why she could no longer walk (right before she was running through the backyard pushing her babies in their stroller). For the record, I have no idea where she gets her dramatics from. 😉
Warm weather fashions are my favorite, it is so much easier to pick out clothes when they don’t involve layers upon layers. I’ve had my eye on so many pretty spring & summer dresses for both my girls lately, this one is currently on it’s way & I can’t wait! And I was so excited that I was able to squeeze this one on Waverly for one more wear before we pass it on to baby sister (similar here). I love, love white on little girls & I am obsessed with anything embroidered, so this piece is definitely one of my all-time favorites.
My parents got Waverly a trampoline for Christmas & she has loved it ever since, but now that we can actually use it more, I’ve decided that it is the best thing has ever happened to us (besides the girls). We don’t go a single day without using it, Waverly will jump for what feels like forever, & then some more. Best toddler entertainment ever, & perfect for tiring them out for bedtime!
And lastly, a recent Waverly Maye development that’s had us on toes more than ever. Ever since the weather warmed up, I’ve been letting Waverly go into the backyard & jump on the trampoline while I clean up in the kitchen or get dinner started. I love that we can do that now since my husband put the fence in & she can’t go anywhere, I just leave the screen door open & listen to her play. A couple of weeks ago, she had been out there a few minutes when she walked in with her big girl panties in her hand & said “I peed outside because I am a doggie”. OMG. She literally squatted in the backyard like our lab does. I have obviously tried to explain to her that she’s not a dog & that we pee in the potty inside, but ever since if I even turn my head for a minute, she is bent down peeing. Here’s to hoping this is a phase, there is no doubt our neighbors really think we have lost it now. As for us, it’s hard not to laugh & look forward to telling her all about this one day.
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Maternity Clothes: I’m still living in anything stretchy & comfortable, mainly dresses since even my maternity leggings are tight as this point. I bought some new pajamas that are just a nightie so I don’t have to wear shorts anymore to sleep (they were cutting off my circulation), & have worn them every single night since. I was almost embarrassed when my husband saw them for about the twelfth night in a row, then I remembered I’m 34 weeks pregnant with his second kid. Enough said. 😉
Best Moment This Week: So much nursery progress, it actually looks like a real room now which is SO very exciting!! I organized all of Waverly’s newborn & 3/6 months clothes into our new dresser, it was so surreal looking at the clothes again. I can’t believe how itty bitty they are or that we will have another little girl to put them in so very soon! My husband also finished the closet, plus we set up both the rug & put sheets on the bed! We still have to hang frames on the walls & accessorize, but here is a look at the pallet wall my husband finished a few weeks ago!!
Movement: Her movements have definitely slowed down & feel different, but when she does, it shakes my entire belly!
Cravings: Smoothies, yogurt, ice cream. And sleep. 😉
Queasy or Sick: Other than the symptoms above, feeling good & excited as ever!!
Looking Forward To: There are so many fun things to look forward to in the next couple of weeks, our maternity pictures next weekend & our baby-q the following one, then my maternity leave begins!! By that point, I am sure I will be more ready than ever to slow down & spend some time as a family of three before the big day!
