Hard to believe how far along I am in my second pregnancy. Time sure flies when you have a little peanut to watch over.
I'm missing my desk job a bit, this nesting at home could kill me. Much easier when all I could do was tidy up my office in between projects with a few evening hours/weekends to dedicate to the house. Being at home my nesting is taking the form of deep cleaning the house, organizing the basement, tearing out our old juniper bushes in the front of the house, digging up lily bulbs and thinning them... It's a bit much for my back, in addition to carrying around the baby bump. :D

My baby a year ago! My goodness, I can't believe how she's grown and changed. Here she was just crawling and babbling, now she is running as fast as the wind and speaking in sentences, broken sentences, but sentences none the less. I cannot believe how fast she's growing up!
Buckle - bockoak
We say, "Who's this?" and point to her and she says, "The Peep!!"

I've been galvanized lately! After our trip to Florida, I could think of nothing I wanted to do more than simplify, simplify, simplify. So I've been sorting (=giant garage sale pile), throwing out, organizing, cleaning. It feels SO GOOD! I want to keep this going.
I have some outdoor plans to put into place as well. Build a chicken coop and get some chicks for laying hens and thereby organic eggs. Set up a compost pile. Build a jungle gym for Peep, Hubs has a telephone pole that he'd like to build into it. Lots to do, lots to do before baby two arrives.
I told Peep the morning we were leaving that we needed to eat breakfast because we were leaving to go to Florida. She went to the front door, reached for the handle and said, "Me me ah Florida."
Her speech and vocab have improved so much in the past week, it's incredible. She's got a big thing with, "Oh no!" lately. As in, "Oh no, my bucket (baby, blankie, penny, juice, milk, etc.)!"
An allehhh-yator (Peep's pronunciation) we spotted behind our cottage.
We laid her down in our inn room for a nap (in a pack n play, bless you Anchor Inn & Cottages!!) and we laid down to take a nap too. Peep says, "Hi, Momma. Hi, Momma. Hi, Momma." I didn't respond. Then she says, "Momma sleep. Night night Momma, night night!" I hear her lay down. Approx. 30 seconds later she stands up and repeats the process. She did that, oh, 3 or 4 times. I'm just laying there trying not to laugh out loud.
She ADORED the beach. She'd have spent all day there, no problem. I don't even think she would have stopped for lunch. She waded into the surf, scooped sand with her shovel and bucket, watched people, picked up shells, followed seagulls and other birds around (that was too cute).
