Hello 2nd trimester, please be good to me

Ok, so not our baby. But according to the internet, our little love is about 3.5" long now. That's probably about the size of my thumb (from tip to wrist). So far as I mentioned in my last post, I've been a bit more queezy in this pregnancy than Addilyn's. The time I felt my worst with Addi was actually about now. So I'm really hoping that since this pregnancy has already proven itself to be a bit different, that instead I will get better! Of course there are the other symptoms I've been having- mainly nasty headaches. I could totally do without those. I'm just as tired, if not more, with this one. These dang kids suck everything out of you! It's incredible the feeling of complete exhaustion and you've only just woke up. I'm thinking I need to start taking some iron like I had to with Addi.

Right now I'm taking a break from cleaning and packing. We are headed to Long Island on Friday for the weekend and then spending Thanksgiving week with family in Pennsylvania. We are really excited for Addilyn to play with all of her cousins, since last year she was a little less mobile (only 8 months old). We thought we were going to be able to see my dad too, but plans changed. He was sent to PA to help his company with the overload of claims they were getting due to the hurricane. Well, he is actually flying back today. It was supposed to be 2 weeks, probably 3 that he was supposed to be there. They had enough people but the claims just sort of stopped and didn't need the extra hands anymore. Oh well....On a happy note, my mom is coming for Christmas! Woo!

Coming clean

Okay, so there is one more reason why I've been a horrible blogger. Yes, the number one reason is my laptop is refusing to take internet from my phone (we've been tethering for the last year+). But the 2nd reason?
We are expecting! Yes, that is supposed to be a little baby on my shirt...We made this discrete public announcement at our ward trunk or treat on Halloween. We are due May 15. That makes me 13 weeks tomorrow. We knew we were pregnant back in early September. Our babies will be almost exactly 2 years apart. So far Addilyn has been very accommodating and taking 2 hour naps which allows me to nap too. I've been queezier (is that a word?) than I was with Addilyn. And I'm very happy I made a gazillion freezer meals because I have no desire to cook.
Our pumpkin. I made all of our costumes and was very proud of it too. We haven't really had good costumes since we were Napoleon and Pedro when we were first married. Below is a picture of another girl dressed as a pumpkin. If you look close enough you can see they are both eyeing the sucker the girl is holding.
