16 Weeks

I am now 16 weeks pregnant and my belly seems to be getting bigger to me. I bought my first maternity clothes last weekend. I had a doctor's appointment today and got to hear the heartbeat which is just as cool this time around as it was the first time with Alexandra. At my next appointment on September 5 we will find out the sex of the baby! We can't wait to see if Alexandra will be getting a little sister or brother! Right now every time we ask her if she wants a brother she says no. Then we ask her if she wants a sister and she says no to that too! Clearly she'd like things to stay how they are, with her as the only princess!

We are leaving tomorrow for Greece and will be gone for two weeks. We are super excited for the vacation and to see Nick's sister Chris and her family. We know Alexandra is going to have so much fun with her cousins Ioanna and George.

Back From Wisconsin

Yesterday our time in Wisconsin came to an end and we returned home to Nick. We had a great time up in Wisconsin taking Alex and Jaelynn to the pool, park and zoo. They had more fun together than I ever expected. I thought they would still kind of ignore each other and just play on their own. Instead they played together, hugged, held hands, even kissed. They really had fun together. And we had so much fun watching and laughing at them. It was very sad to leave but Nick was very excited to see Alexandra and she was just as happy to see him. Now we are back to the old routine for a week and a half before we make the trip to Greece to visit Nick's sister and her kids.

I am still doing good, pregnancy wise. The tiredness has pretty much disappeared so now the only thing reminding me that I am pregnant is my growing belly! I'll post a new picture of myself soon. Enjoy the new pictures and videos of Alex with her cousin, Jaelynn.
