Baby Montoya #2 is a....

To my surprise, we are having a baby boy! We have mostly many girls in our family so it was a pretty good chance it was a girl.  Eric was the first to notice and jumped out of his seat and ran up to the screen pointing!  It was the sweetest thing to see! 

How far along: 20 weeks
Total weight gain: 10 lbs
Maternity clothes: Just now starting to venture into maternity  pants because tight pants have to be the most uncomfortable thing when pregnant (especially when you have to pee 24/7)!  For the most part, I am still trying to rock most of my regular clothes but it is just a matter of time.  With Chloe, I did not care what I looked like and rocked Eric’s shirts half the time but with this one, I am trying to not look like a slob and I am actually excited about dressing up my bump!
Stretch marks: Not yet, just the few from when I had Chloe that snuck up after I had her.
Sleep: I cannot complain here, sleeping as much as I can!
Best moment of this week: Feeling the baby kick!  I swear the baby did a back flip in there! Eric also got to feel him kick for the first time the other day.  
Miss anything: My boobs not being huge boulders on my chest!  Wine!  Being indigestion free!
Movement: YES!  It is so weird because this baby’s movements feel different than Chloe.  With Chlo, they started as a little butterfly flutter and then progressed to full on movements but with this one, we skipped the flutters!  Eric says he (he is set in his mind it is a boy!) is going to be a UFC fighter!
Food cravings: No cravings but I have been dreaming about the day I can have wine and coffee.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Rarely, Thank you Jesus!!!! Once I got past 12 wks, I felt sooo much better!
Have you started to show yet: Yes, baby is making an appearance this last couple weeks.
Labor signs: No but I am terrified for labor this time!
Belly button in or out: In still and belly button ring still attached!
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy but I do have my moments where I do/say things out of the blue that are quite bitchy! 
Looking forward to: Doing the bursary and shopping!

Christmas 2015

Christmas and came and gone and I am kinda sad about it!  We had a great run this holiday though and feeling so blessed to have a holiday filled with love and family.  2015 was a pretty hard one with my mom and aunt's health and being able to spend the holidays with them meant the world.  This year was especially exciting because Chloe really got into and really understood the whole concept of Christmas.  Using Santa to bribe Chloe really came in handy also!  Eric got in pretty late Christmas Eve but just in enough time to bake Santa cookies.

 I had to actually wake Eric and Chloe up around 10 am because or they probably would have slept at least another hour! After opening presents, we spent time with family, ate Italian food, and played with Chlo's new toys.

Here are a few extras from our holiday weekend.  We took Chloe to the movies to see The Good Dinosaur for her first time and she surprised the shut out of me. She did sooo good! She was Dec not still but was quiet and just stuffed her face with a whole bag of popcorn!

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and have a Happy New
