Operation: Toddler Playland

A couple weekends ago, Jason took on a huge task - he took a chunk of our yard, dug up the grass, replanted it elsewhere and mulched the yard to turn it into a Toddler Playland for Redmond (and his friends, of course!).  It turned out great!  Our small-ish patio was getting over run with Redmond's toys and we knew that if we put any of them on the grass, the grass would just die.  Poor Jason was sore for DAYS, but it turned out so great and, although he hasn't been able to fully utilize it yet (it hasn't been warm enough to fill the pool yet), Redmond loves it!


After the grass was dug up and the weed guard and mulch was placed:

The finished product (please excuse the ghetto "curtain" for our garage window):

He's such a gentleman, he rings the doorbell before he enters the house:

I think I'm finally feeling the baby move!!

Actually, I think I’ve been feeling him/her for a few days now. Just little flutters here and there. A lot sooner than with Redmond. I don’t think I felt him until 22 weeks or so.

Can’t wait for the full blown kicks and jabs - by far the best part of being pregnant!

Fifteen Weeks!

I'm fifteen weeks pregnant today ☺  I had a routine check-up and, other than my blood pressure being slightly elevated (I have a tad bit of 'White Coat Syndrome'), everything was great!  My dr. found the baby's heartbeat right away and it was a very healthy 154 bpm!  Only four more weeks before we find out if it's a boy or a girl!!!

I've been having absolutely horrible headaches.  I remember having them when I was pregnant with Redmond, but not this bad.  They're actually waking me up from a dead sleep because they hurt so bad.  I've also had small bouts of insomnia, but it seems to have passed for now.  I had awful insomnia during the my 3rd trimester when pregnant with R.  Hoping it's not too bad this time around!
