Thanks for the feedback on my baby name post!! I appreciate it. I tried to write back to some, but your email was no-reply.
I cant believe it was TWO years ago I took this photo shoot of Miss Anika for Father's Day!
I took about 100 photos one night after work. Some for my dad (Her Gampa) and some for Andrew. I framed them for Father's day. This year, I have NO Idea what I am doing!! If you have seen any EASY ideas on Pinterest or something, please let me know! I need to whip something up ASAP for Andrew. He doesn't want a big gift (Aka for me to spend money), so something homemade would be perfect.
Time is going by pretty fast. We have lots to keep us busy. I need to pull out some maternity clothes! I got an awesome new dress from Dee and I will post a photo of me in it soon!
What was wrong with me?? Look at my mirror? I didnt even have a kid yet and my mirror is NASTY in all the belly pictures pregnant with Anika. It never looks like that now :) I am spreading out just like I did with Anika- all up and down my belly and across. NO cute little basketball belly for me!! I spread across and up with both. I wonder if this means another girl...or if this is just how I do pregnancies.
I ran this morning for a bit. Not that long. Still feeling good. Same ole, same ole. I have been eating like a pig.For example, Anika and I ate this huge plate of nachos at Market Square day in Portsmouth this weekend! haha. I never get nachos, but nothing else on the menu looked good.
Then, we walked around a lot more and had ice cream. We actually walked miles that day, but we ate a lot too :)
We left Portsmouth around 5:30 and drove up home, but then I got caught in bike week traffic and then decided I didn't want to head BACK down south on Sunday, so took Anika grocery shopping at 8 PM! ha. I was tired and she was tired, but we made it and got home around 9. Long day, but totally worth it.
Sunday, all 3 of us headed down to the river to meet up with some friends. Anika was the only kid most of the time, but she had a blast. She kept the adults entertained, that's for sure!!
Andrew leaves notes for Anika when he goes to work. She loves them. On Monday, she read her note (I read it to her) and she immediately asked to write back. This girl just LOVES her daddy.On Saturday when we got home from being gone all day, I was putting food away and heard her tell Andrew out of the blue, "Daddy, you my best friend' He was obviously touched and she has him WRAPPED! She says things like that to me when she wants something, but rarely just because. Their love for each other could just make me cry. Last Friday, she woke up and was jumping on my bed "Its Friday!!! Daddy come home today!" Melts my heart.
She is 26 months old and just as fun as could be. She has her moments, but what toddler doesn't :)
I do want to start video taping her more. We actually need a hidden camera for our family dinners. OH wow- she tells us some stories! I know she wont do that if she knows a camera is on her. Sometimes I bring my phone to the table in case Andrew calls or when he is home, so I can video her, but as soon as she sees the phone on the table "Mummy, NO Phones at dinner table!" and then calls me naughty. Geeze.
