Sophie Happenings


Sophie has worn all of her hair in pigtails. However, we had to redo them 3 times during the day because she moves around too much. So I decided it's really not worth it yet to do pigtails.

Sophie ate a cake pop to learn if she was going to get a little sister or a little brother! To be honest, she didn't care about the sister or brother part. She just wanted as many cake pops as we would let her have.

I heard the fan going in the room that Owen, the boy we babysit, sleeps in. Sophie's not allowed to turn the fan on unless I tell her she can, so I went to investigate... and this is what I found. I just couldn't punish her for this. It was too cute...  (as a side note, she LOVES her Bear and Baby right now... she feeds them, rocks them, takes them on wagon rides, and apparently even puts them to bed now)

And a favorite snack... apples! I love it that she can eat them whole because it saves me time. Yesterday she ate the ENTIRE thing... well, I think she did spit the stem out. Anyways, I'm glad she loves apples, and she's super cute when she eats them.

I'm so thankful for this little girl, and she makes me excited about having another one!

Boy or Girl? Baby #2's Gender Announcement!

Boy or Girl? That is the question!

We learned the gender of our baby yesterday. We went in for our ultrasound in the afternoon, and waited patiently as the u/s tech checked everything else, and then finally asked us if we were wanting to learn the gender. Yes! We wanted to know.

So she checked and was able to tell right away.

And so, it looks like Sophie will be getting a little...


We're very excited to know what this energetic little baby is! We can't wait to meet you sweet baby girl!

Thanks to Created By Carrie Photography for our wonderful pictures!!

Sophie Photo Blast [17 Months]

Thought it was time to post some new photos of Sophie! She's a pretty cute girl, if I say so myself :)

Baby Miller#2 Update [19 Weeks]

[18 weeks]
I can't believe I'm 19 weeks today! Time seems to be flying with this pregnancy. I thought it would be good to give an update on the pregnancy!

Sickness: I've been feeling mostly better since 13 weeks. I would say that's when the morning sickness officially went away. I have had some random bouts of sickness here and there (threw up twice since then), which didn't happen with Sophie, but I think my stomach is just a little weaker than normal and I have to be careful around gross diapers and stinky food. I've had heartburn a few times already and anticipate the heartburn to be the same as with Sophie. I have far more energy than I did in the first trimester (I was taking naps everyday then and am back to not napping).

Movement: With Sophie, I didn't feel movement until 21 weeks, and at that point, it was kicking I felt. I know many women talk about feeling "flutters" first, being kicking... but I've never felt flutters with either of my babies. Just went right to kicks. That being said, I felt this one SO much earlier than I did with Sophie! I'm positive I started feeling kicks by 16 weeks, and I think I even started feeling them at 15 weeks. This baby moves ALL.THE.TIME! I'm just amazing how much he/she kicks. I would seriously be worried if I went more than half a day without feeling kicks. With Sophie, I never worried about not feeling movement because she moved so little in the womb. The little kicks are so fun and reassuring!

Gender: Still a mystery to us right now. We're hoping to find out next week!

Weight Gain: I'm guessing I'm going to gain about the same as what I gained with Sophie. I've gained 6 pounds so far, and as you can tell, I'm not showing very much yet. No maternity clothes yet. Which is nice since my normal closet supplies me with more choices :)

I'll update you next week with ultrasound pictures and hopefully a gender reveal!
