Mommy Monday {26 weeks}

Well we are back from vacation and freezing our little tails off.  It's April and there's a winter storm warning this week. I'm not quite sure how to handle that, because I'm so ready for warmer weather.

We are also dealing with a bit of early terrible twos. Lennon has had an epic tantrum every day since we got back from Florida. I'm about to lose my mind. I don't know how parents deal with this because I am losing all of my patience and starting to get really upset with her. I've cried every time because I just don't know how to handle it. I guess it's just so frustrating because she can't express her needs, which is why the tantrum happens to begin with.  Any suggestions are welcome! I feel like I'm a terrible mom because I just don't know what to do!

If we had waited until Lennon hit this stage I don't know if I'd even be writing this Mommy Monday... HAHA. Seriously though, I'm getting excited for Baby's arrival, but scared to see what happens with our family dynamic. Only time will tell!

How far along?  26 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm kind of over weighing myself and worrying about my weight. I really do not like having to lose it after, but I'm just going to continue my exercises and eat as healthy as I can. I'm also not going to stop myself from indulging in some of my cravings!
Maternity clothes: I'm just over here sitting, waiting, wishing for some warm weather so I can bust out all my comfy dresses!
Stretch marks: None to report and hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee. I will be adding The Honest Co. Belly Balm once I get a chance to go the store!
Sleep: I'm still waking up in the middle of the night, tossing and turning. I even slept terribly when we were on vacation because I was worried about where our dishes will go in our kitchen when we move. Like, what? My brain just needs to turn off and rest sometimes. 
Exercise: Beachbody On Demand is still my go to workout. I really need to be more consistent with working out, but I was just on vacation so that's my excuse this week. 
Best moment this week: Closing on our house! 
Miss anything? Sleep and being able to lay on my back. 
Movement:  She doesn't like to move very much during the day, then as soon as I lay down for bed she's ready to party. 
Food cravings: Orange Juice! Yum!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I still really cannot stand the smell of bell peppers. Nothing else is really bothering me. 
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: No and let's keep it that way!
Belly button in or out? In, but sneaking it's way out. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I'm still pretty emotional. Especially with Lennon's tantrums.   
Looking forward to:  Closing on our house!

Until next time!
