Our Little Lady

I want to introduce our newest family member, who joined our family just over two months ago now. (And let me tell you those two months have flown by, which is putting me is a state of panic because my children are growing up way to fast.)

So, without further ado here is miss Emma Beth Lee Rasmussen.

She weighed 7 lbs 15 oz and was 19 in long.

She loves to snuggle and her daddy has been eating that up.

Her brother loves her to death and hugs and kisses her every chance he gets.

She has been such a blessing to me and to our family.  She has shown us that our hearts can grow even more then we ever knew.

I came across this poem and I feel that it defines me right now.

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, for babies grow up, I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So, settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I’m rocking my baby and baby’s don’t keep.

So, while I am over here trying to take in every moment with my precious kiddos, I hope you have been enjoying your new year!

Some Shiny New News

I wanted to share some exciting and shiny news with my wonderful readers!

Here at the Snickerplum household we are expecting a new little baby!

And that baby is going to be a girl! It has been a very different pregnancy this time around then with little man. Even though I have been sick with morning sickness I still wasn’t quite as sick as I was with him. The major difference is that I have been sick longer with her, which is quite a feat since I was sick until 19 weeks with little man. Yet it was a good thing I want as sick because I also started going back to school to finish up my degree at BYU-Idaho. (I figured since we are here any way it would not hurt to finish up my schooling as well.) But that is another post for another day. Back to the nitty gritty details.

I will be 25 weeks tomorrow.
Up until 19 weeks I felt completely gender neutral (which was very different then the first time because early on we knew it was a boy). In my head I kept thinking the baby was a boy, but then suddenly one morning I was cleaning my son’s room and pow! It hit me, and I felt greatly impressed that we were going to have a girl.  So much so that when we were packing supplies for our gender reveal photos I felt silly bringing anything blue (we didn’t know when we left the house that morning). My sweet hubby on the other hand a couple weeks before felt impressed that we were having a girl.

He is so excited to have a daddy’s girl, and for all the pink (especially the pink camo). I love that man and that I get to share forever with him.

Over all this has been a different but good pregnancy so far and lately I have traded the morning sickness with Braxton-Hicks contractions.  Which I get all the time. Guess my body needs to do some major prep work for birthing this little one.

How has your summer gone? Do you have any fun or exciting news to share?
