Project 365x3: Day 16- March 20th

We turned '33 weeks' pregnant today as you all saw on my Pregnancy Post yesterday :) Hard to believe isn't it? That means only 28-49 days until baby #2 arrives!  I shared this belly picture yesterday, but I thought I would share it as a part of my Project 365 as well :)

My growing girl :) We get to see her again this Sunday and I CANNOT wait!!!
And I thought I'd share a close-up too! I too this one yesterday too ;)

I love seeing that belly! I am so excited for her to get here, but I know part of me is going to REALLY miss that baby bump too!! :) It's a bittersweet thing. I'll be ready to get back in to regular clothes again, but I know how I felt after Tayler was born. You miss those kicks, nudges, and hiccups-- them being near you 24/7. Like I said-- bittersweet ;) I am SUPER STOKED for her to arrive though! Not much longer!
And today was...
'Lets attempt to potty train my crazy almost 2 year old' Day.

I just realized her little butt cheek was hanging…

Project 365x3: Day 15- March 19th

I didn't have any sessions to edit today, so Tayler and I got to spend ALL day together :) She had her bath and breakfast and then it was 'reading' time :) She loves her chair that our sweet friends Brittany and Natalie bought her for her birthday last year and she decided to sit in that this morning and 'read' hehe :)

Doesn't she look SO big?? Goodness gracious!
We hung out with Gigi today, too! She brought the tutu she made for Tayler's birthday party and tried it on her. Tayler wasn't sure at first, haha! She kept holding her arms straight out and wouldn't let them touch the tutu, LOL! It was hysterical. But after that, she kept stealing it and taking it to her play room! :) I think she's a pretty big fan :)
All of that must have worn her out though because she climbed right up by my side, cuddled in to me, and fell asleep.

I love our snuggles :) Hard to believe we are going to have TWO to snuggle with before long!
We snuggled on the couch w…


Oh my heavens.
We are 33 weeks pregnant today.
I know I have said this before, but are Wednesdays getting here quicker and quicker or is it just me?? LOL
It's even scarier to think of things like this:
Yes... 28-49 days until our sweetheart will be here. HOLY FREAKING COW.
It's starting to really set in. 
I remember when I was only like 20 weeks pregnant and people were asking me if I was nervous about labor and I was like, 'Not really... I don't feel nervous at all.' And now, I'm 33 weeks pregnant and I'm like, 'Oh dear Jesus, I'm getting ready to give birth again.' LOL
Don't get me wrong. I had a pretty good labor with Tayler. Given, it was 18 hours long (haha.. she was so stubborn), but I had such a peace from God during it. I labored for so long... I was worn out.. and then wouldn't you know it.. they told me I was dilated '5' and that I could get the epidural... and I went from a '5' …

Project 365x3: Day 14- March 18th

I woke up this morning and my mom had sent me a text with the outfit she is making for Tayler for her 2nd birthday party which is this weekend!

She still has to add a '2' on the front of the shirt and a bow but how adorable is that??? She's wearing some adorable black tennis shoes and white socks to go with it!! EEK :) 
And we got all of the decorations for her party.. and some other goodies yesterday too!!

I have a few things left to pick up.. and of course, I've got to get all of the food and a few other gifts for Tayler, but it's all coming together finally! I felt so behind this year... but I am feeling much better about the situation now, haha! I have an awesome Mom that is helping me get everything organized. I truly appreciate her! And I cannot wait to share the pictures from her birthday party with all of you :)
All of this planning must have worn Tayler out though because it was nap time quickly in our house, haha!

She is the c…

Project365x3- Day 13: March 17th

Today was....
And guess what??
All of us forgot and did NOT wear green. Go figure, haha! But Tayler looked cute anyways.. as always ;)

Her Aunt Susan and Uncle Tim bought that dress for her for Christmas and she FINALLY got to wear it :) Didn't she look adorable?? She seems to really be getting in to dressing up for church. 
Speaking of...
this was our 2nd Sunday at a new church. It's called 'House of Grace' in Zanesville. I will probably be the first to admit it. I was skeptical. Not of the people.. or the church as a whole.. just concerning 'going back to church.' I haven't really been an active participant in a 'church building' since I was 20. It wasn't that I didn't have a relationship with God or still love Him with all of my heart. I just felt indifferent about some things, so I decided to develop my relationship with Him at home as opposed to at a church. Ethan and I talked about going to church often. He di…

Project365x3: Day 12- March 16th

Saturday, Ethan had an all-day ball tournament, so Tayler and I got up and got ready to head to the store with Gigi. We had a kind of weird morning though!
I was getting ready while Tayler was still snoozing and I heard LOUD, PERSISTENT honking. I assumed it was the neighbors and kept going about my business. About 2 minutes later, I hear someone LOUDLY knocking on my door. Almost sounded angry. I looked out the window and saw an old man banging on my door. My heart started racing because it sounded like he could have just knocked the door straight over. I remained quiet.. and watched him drive away a few minutes later. After that, I was like 'I am getting the heck out of dodge!' I grabbed Tayler out of bed, got her ready, packed my diaper bag, and ran out the door. While driving down the street, there was a kid about mid-20s on my corner with a Barbie back pack around his back. All I could think was... 'Is it a full moon tonight?' LOL! I was freaking out and just wan…

Project365x3- Day 11: March 15th

Friday, I spent most of my day editing photo sessions. I wanted to get completely caught up before the weekend started.. and YAY :) I did! It was such a relief! 
Funny story--
We were supposed to get our house appraised Wednesday morning, but the appraiser ended up cancelling due to sickness. Well, our realtor called me and told me that she would be coming by at 11:30AM Friday. So, I woke up this morning, got ready, got Tayler ready, and cleaned up the house.. I wanted to be completely prepared for her in hopes that our house would FINALLY get appraised today! :) I had the whole house straightened up and I finally sat down around 11AM to start some editing while I waited for her. All of Tayler's toys were still laying all around the living room where she was playing with them. I figured I could just clean them up about 11:15/11:20 and head out the door. Well, at 11:01 I hear a door... and I look out my window.. and the appraiser is HERE ALREADY!!!! LOL So, I started running aroun…
