 Its been raining really hard lately so I finally let Ruby go puddle crazy, she loved it.
 A great distraction for Ruby while I made some dinner!

 We tell Ruby all the time that there is a baby in my belly, I have no clue how much she understands about that, but last week she was being super cute and affectionate to it.

 Last week I made it into my third trimester.
 This handsome guy turned 35.
 and this sweet little girl turn 20 months.

weeks 20, 23 and 26
 Everything about this pregnancy has been so drastically different than the one with Ruby.  I'd like to think its because I am having a boy but its only because its a different pregnancy. 
This go around I am having lots more fatigue, mood swings and discomfort.  Last night I had to worst RLS ever, I wanted to scream.  It seems as though my belly is growing along the same rate as when I had Ruby in there, I sure do feel bigger than ever though.  Its getting a little more challenging finding comfortable things to wear in public, I refuse to go out wearing lounge wear.  I did find a cheap $7 maternity dress at Wal-Mart a couple weeks ago and I have worn it nearly every other day since. 
week 26 with Ruby next to week 26 with #2
Really, I just can't wait for the next 3 months to be over.
