Updates, Updates

Bug is napping so I have a few minutes to update.

Bug has officially been walking for TWO WEEKS!!! She is no longer a baby, but a toddler :( But that is ok because her little face just lights up everytime she walks across the room. She has also added a few words to her vocabulary. She can say dada, mama!, gacie (gracie), woof woof (dog), and she thinks it is hilarious to call J by his first name! She is just getting so big, and it is amazing how much she loves her sister.

Had my first official appointment with my OB/GYN today. I am 11 weeks along. Everything looks good, except that I did lose 6 lbs in the last 4 weeks. I honestly have no idea how since I eat every two hours. The baby is doing well and I got to hear the heartbeat! It was just so reassuring. This pregnancy has been pretty easy except that I am sooooo tired all the time! I seriously pass out by 10:30pm every night and sleep until about 9am. Then I am exhausted all day long. I know you are supposed to be tired during pregnancy but I do not remember being this tired with the girls.

BooBoo is still as amazing as ever and hopefully she will have an update coming soon!

Breast Cancer Awareness and Scentsy

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. All month we will see color Pink everywhere, supporting everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. Women are reminded to give themselves self-exams. I have the hopes of attending the Susan G. Komen 3-day for the Cure either next year (or the year after, since Baby #3 will only be 3 months at the time next summer).

Now, what most of you do not know is that I am an Independent Scentsy Consultant. I love my job because I am able to stay home with my girls, and work when it is convenient for my schedule. Plus, Scentsy products are safe to use around children. All you need is a warmer, a couple scent cubes and you have a delicious smelling home. So, why am I telling you about my job when this post is discussing Breast Cancer Awareness? Because of this:

The Love, Life, Hope Breast Cancer Awareness Scentsy warmer. The owners of Scentsy worked with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF) to bring this warmer to the public. With each Love, Life, Hope warmer purchased, 100% of the net profits will be donated to the NCBF.

If you would like to purchase a Love, Life, Hope warmer or if you would like more information on Scentsy, please email me.
