I'm Going to Pretend I Was Never Gone

Aren't you glad to have me back?! I have to get back in the swing of blogging again!
.
Since we've missed out on pictures lately, here you go:
.
It might be hard to see, but the white thing in the crib by her feet.... her diaper. She took it off after waking up from a nap. Silly me, I will never put her down without pants on ever again :) Luckily, it was only barely wet, and there was no mess on her or the crib.
.

We've been swimming a few times this year and every time Carrie does better and better. She's more comfortable in the water and getting more independent. Since this picture, I've bought her some arm floaties that work great! In this picture, (our first time swimming this year) she just kept trying to climb out of the baby float. We put it away after only a few minutes.
.
.
Carrie thought it would be fun, while I wasn't looking, to put her hands in her plate with syrup on it, and then put them in her hair! I know it's hard to tell, but can you see how shiny and sticky looking her hair is right on top? Bath-time!
.

I got made fun of while I was pregnant with Carrie when I said this, but I'm 1/4 of the way done being pregnant! I was 10 weeks yesterday. I have a routine doctor's appointment this afternoon to check everything out. Fortunately for me, being pregnant really isn't all that bad. I've been feeling much better the past couple of weeks. I'm just excited to be 1/4 done because I'm that much closer to meeting this new baby. I'm still like to try to take at least a small nap during the day, but other than that I'm pretty good. As long as I don't forget to eat!
.
Last night at dinner, Justin looked at me and said, ".... Holy Cow. We're going to have two kids... Weird!" I could only agree :)
.
Justin had a basketball reffing camp last weekend and has another one this weekend. Last week's was for college level reffing which is eventually a career goal of his. He said things went pretty good, and a lot of people there knew who he was! This is huge because that means his networking is working! Getting your name known is the first step. That way, people actually watch him and evaluate him more closely. Hopefully, all these things combined will get him signed on to ref college basketball. Everyone cross your fingers (for the next couple of years probably)
.
I almost forgot!! Carrie's other top tooth FINALLY poked through! I was worried her one tooth was going to come all the way down before the second one decided to show up. I'm so relieved. Isn't it funny what can make you so happy?

Congrats on the 1/4 mark!!! That is a funny diaper picture. I'm glad things are going well for you all.

Wow, she is so smart. That is funny though that she took off her diaper, maybe she will be really easy to potty train.
That is a cute picture of her with syrup in her hair, she looks happy about it too. She is so cute.
Glad you are feeling better.
Kisses to everyone! Love Nana

I know exactly how you feel about being excited about the 1/4 mark :D! But I try not to think about it till the 1/2 mark just so it doesn't seem so long!!! This second half is going to be a long one cuz I can't wait till she's here!!!! I'm glad you are feeling better!!! I would never wish morning sickness on anyone ... except maybe Ty just for a day so he would understand how it feels ... lol! No i'm just kididng, he's been much more sympathetic this time around that he was with Crystal so that is good! :D
