This pregnancy...

I feel like this time around there hasn't been time to document anything!!  So I thought I would write it all down in one post to make sure that this baby doesn't feel neglected. :)

Well I found out the day before New Years Eve that I was pregnant with baby #2!  And then surprised LT with the news on NYE.  The next morning we were all heading down to California to celebrate my Aunt Carolee's 70th with a ton of family.  I thought it was going to be hard to keep a secret but I did it! (except I told my cousins Carlee and Mark! Couldn't help it...Carlee was prying :) ) 

The first month and a half I was fine as long as I had a snack with me.  Then the nauseas set in!  I was nauseous all day every day but no throwing up...just sick.  That lasted until a couple of weeks into my 2nd trimester.  It was awful!  At about 12 weeks we found out that we were having another girl!!

The 2nd trimester I got the headaches again and was constantly tired.  I also got a cold that lasted for what felt like 2 months!

Now that I am in the final haul I just feel big and uncomfortable.  The weather has been incredible in Seattle which would be awesome any other summer but for me being preggers and not being able to enjoy an ice cold beer is torture!  My hips are starting to hurt more, sleeping is becoming more difficult and I feel like the skin on my belly is going to separate from all the stretching this baby does!  She sure is a mover. 

August 24, 2015 is the scheduled C-section date and I hope that she stays in there until then, because there is a ton of stuff I need to get done in the next couple of months!!! 

Can't wait to meet you sweet little baby girl.  I hope we can figure out a name for you soon!!  We love you already and you big sister is the sweetest.  She gives you kisses, sings to you and talks about you all the time.  You two will be besties!!

2014 in review


We brought in the New Year with friends and sunny weather. 

Washington State Cougs went to their first bowl game in 10 years and looked like they were going to win and then...Coug'd it!

Seattle was buzzing with Seahawk playoff games and Seahawk pride all over the city!

SEAHAWKS win the Super Bowl 43-8 against the Denver Broncos!! 

Super Bowl parade was an amazingly cold day.  Almost 1 million people flooded the streets of downtown Seattle and Amanda was one of them (LT had to work).  It was a great day for Seattle.

We had our first snow of the year!

Sienna is potty trained!  3 day boot camp worked wonderfully. 


Sienna turns 2 with a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party!

Poppa O retires!

Sienna is obsessed with bubbles! (like everyday is bubble day until August)

We started off with a HOT springtime!  Which meant lots of pool, sprinkler and neighborhood kids playtime.

Labor day in Los Angeles and a beautiful wedding for our friends Ashley and Aaron in Temecula

We lost my dear cousin Katie.  She was an amazing person, with a gentle heart and a kind smile.  We are all so heartbroken that she is no longer with us but it made me really think at how blessed I was to have had her in my life as a cousin.  She will truly be missed and we will carry her spirit with us forever.

Sienna started the 55th St. School!  We are so happy to have her going to Grandma O's school as Amanda went there when she was little.  Wow how time flies!

We plan to go and see Santa and spend time with friends and family over the month of December.  It will be a fun Christmas season for Sienna!

We hope to see many of you this coming year and make more amazing memories!  Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  We hope that 2015 is the best one yet! 

Much love,

The Turner Family
