March can go, now!

March hasn’t been all that great for us. Aside from finding out that we have orders to DC, for the most part we’ve been miserable. The entire month Landon and I have been having some major allergy issues. Then Landon was complaining of an ear ache, but the doctors said he was fine. The very next day he got pink eye and we ended up going back to the doctors to get him medicine. This whole time I was also having allergy issues, but they weren’t too awful yet. Landon was miserable, though! He had a nasty cough, goopy eyes, an achy ear, and snot galore!  Shortly after this, Michael started to get sick, too! He got the nasty cough, scratchy voice and just wasn’t feeling too hot. Landon’s eye got better and Michael was back to normal… then I started to get the worst of it. I went to bed one night with a sore throat and woke up with a nasty cough and hardly any voice! I’m going on day three of little to no voice and I’m so over it! I can’t tell you how hard it is to do the bedtime routine with Landon when you can’t read a bedtime story. I still do, but it’s more of a whispered tone and he is constantly asking me, “What?”
 On top of feeling miserably pregnant, I am miserably sick, too! By the way, can I tell you how much I hate that Michael never seems to get sick and when he does, it’ll seriously last maybe 2 days! He’s so lucky! Landon and I seem to get sick often and when we do it lasts weeks. The only plus to being sick is the extra cuddles that I receive for Landon. He’s such a dear and I love him to death! He still has a cough and needs his nose blown a few times a day, but he is starting to get better. Hopefully, I will be better soon, as well! I’d rather not have a baby while being sick! Speaking of which, Landon told me today that he thinks Emmelyn’s birthday will be April 10th. I guess we’ll see! After all, he did know that she was a girl, before anyone else did!

Nutella pockets!

Do you love chocolate? How about trying this 3-ingredient chocolately, ooey, gooey little piece of Heaven?

Seriously, these are the only ingredients:



Croissant
Nutella spread
Mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Roll out the croissants and spread Nutella on top. Add marshmellows and top with another croissant.



Pinch shut with a fork and bake for about 10-15 mins or until brown.




 I drizzled chocolate on top for color. You could also use powdered sugar or anything else you'd like!

These are definitely kid approved!

Let's get back into blogging...


As many of you know, we’re expecting our second baby fairly soon! I had an ultrasound today and she’s doing wonderful! They took some measurements and have decided that she weighs about 6lbs and 1oz, now. We were also able to see some hair on her ultrasound image! How neat is that? I only had the 20 week ultrasound with Landon, so I never got to see if he had hair in utero, so it’s pretty neat to me. I have my regular OB check up tomorrow and I am hoping that we will be able to discuss more about Emmelyn’s arrival. My doctor has already told me that he doesn’t want me to go past 39 weeks because Landon was born at 39 weeks and got stuck for a good 20 minutes or so! (Shoulder Dysplasia) They’re worried that it might happen again. He’s also mentioned possibly inducing at 38 weeks.
I am surely ready to meet my daughter! I have been having an awful time with this pregnancy; and here I thought Landon’s was painful! I have had the worse pain in my pelvic bone from her head! It’s insane; I can hardly walk without ending up in tears on most days! (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction) But, in all seriousness, we’re all ready to get on with our life and start enjoying our family of four! I’m ready to get out of the house and enjoy the nicer weather and our last summer in Nebraska! It grows olds feeling “trapped” in your own home!
On another note, we’ve decided to cloth diaper Emmelyn! I’m actually pretty excited about this. Maybe someday I’ll write a blog about our favorite diapers! Right now, I find them all pretty cute!
