Almost 2 Months Later!

So lots of things have been going on since my last post.  Maggie got a cold and gave it to Wyatt and me and on top of still being in my first trimester, it was rough.  I am so thankful that Kev was off for the summer when all this happened because mornings got worse with the light coming earlier and the kids waking up at the crack of dawn.  We quickly got into a routine of Kev getting up with the kids and feeding them breakfast while I slept in.  Then I would get up and eat and Kevin would go take a nap.  Maggie still takes a morning nap (thank goodness) so until lunchtime, I really just had to hang out with Wy.  Then lunch and naps for the kids and most days I would go back to sleep while Kev would enjoy some quiet (unless Maggie wasn't ready for her afternoon nap yet).  We didn't get to see much of each other which was probably made things a little worse.
Thankfully, the colds were finally gone and the first trimester was coming to a close.  I was praying so hard for energy to find me during the second trimester.  I think I was a little bummed when I didn't just magically feel more energized when 15 weeks hit.  It took a little longer and I gradually started feeling a little better.  My mom came and helped me get my office cleaned out one day and helped me kickstart my kitchen cleaning routine.  So far, my kitchen has been cleaned every day for the past couple weeks (which is probably the longest it's stayed clean since Wyatt was born!).  I know that sounds bad, but my priorities have not been where they should have been as far as the housekeeping goes.  I'm praying and working towards a doable routine before number 3 gets here after Thanksgiving.  My goal is to be able to balance stay at home mom and wife duties with three little ones underfoot and when you have ADD and very little desire to clean, it's worse than pulling teeth!
Anyways, back to life with the 2 we already have.  Maggie had her 15 month check-up last month so I need to post those stats.  She is walking now, so she just gets where she wants to be a little easier now!  She still has baby fat feet, so I haven't been able to find any shoes that will fit her length and fatness of her foot.  Therefore, we still have to carry her when we walk outside for the most part.  Wyatt is going to be 3 in just 2 1/2 more weeks so we are planning his party...don't get him started on his Thomas birthday cake!  He's so excited and so are we!  We traveled to Charleston for a short vacation this past week and had a blast!  We also had another ultrasound for baby 3 yesterday and I'm 20 weeks so we definitely know what baby 3 is.  Stay tuned for upcoming posts to find see what we've been up to and if we're giving the kids a baby brother or sister!
