Yay for Friday! I know I have been major slacker with blogging. We have had a lot of sickness in our house for the past 2 weeks. So instead of trying to catch up on 2 weeks I am just going to start with today. We only have 2 more weeks of school/work left! Our weekend is going to be a busy one! Last night, we had my family over to celebrate my grandfather's 80th birthday! It really isn't til tomorrow but we got together for dessert at our house last night. Ellison had a blast showing off to everyone and helping Claude open his gifts. Today Ellison spent time at a friend's house while Connor and I went to our 12 week check up! Baby Ball is doing wonderful. I am measuring exactly 12 weeks, we got to see "it" moving around all over the place and had a strong heartbeat of 168. We go back again in 4 weeks then our visit after that will be at 20 weeks and we will find out the gender.
Tomorrow evening is very special for Connor and me. Ellison is going to spend the night with her MeMac (Connor's mom). Connor and I are going to a nice dinner out, then attending the Jimmy Buffet concert (so excited) and Connor has reservations for us to stay at a hotel in Nashville tomorrow night. So it is a true date night that we really need! When we wake up Sunday morning we won't feel like we have to get up and do things around the house before we get Ellison. Instead we are going to go out to breakfast and enjoy the morning together! The Sunday afternoon my parents are having a cookout with a bunch of friends to celebrate my dad's upcoming 60th birthday!
Needless to say this weekend is going to fly by! And finally here is a picture of Baby Ball!

The weeks have flown by! I am way behind! We have not taken many pictures so I will just give a verbal update. Last week was busy being back at school/work. Last Friday we had a doctor's appointment to check on Baby Ball #2 and all looked well! We say arms, legs, the heartbeat and it did a little wiggling for us. I am measuring right on schedule (almost 11 weeks now)! Our weekend was low key, just ran errands, did stuff around the house, went to some garage sales AND we got Ellison bedding for her big girl bed! We plan on transitioning her at the start of the summer (along with some potty training)! Poor girl is in for a rude awakening ;) I will post pictures of her new big girl room after we make the transition. This week started out good until yesterday afternoon. I actually have a stomach virus (was up all night being sick). At first I thought it was morning sickness but I am about 100% sure it is a virus. I am staying home from work today while Ellison goes on to school so I can rest. This weekend we are scheduled to go to Knoxville to visit our dear friends, The McNally Family! We are very excited, the boys are going on a camping/fishing trip so us mommies and babies are going to have some quality time together :) Many pics will posted when we return!

We celebrated another special occasion with all of our families this past weekend besides Easter! Miss Ellison is going to be a BIG SISTER! Baby Ball #2 is due on November 13th! We are very excited to share this wonderful news with friends and family :) It has been a semi-rough few weeks for me, with being very tired and nauseous...on top of working 4 days a week and keeping up with a 2 year old in my spare time :) Despite all of that, we feel so blessed and thankful for bringing another bundle of joy into our lives!
