Here is a belly shot comparison from last pregnancy and this pregnancy. I have been feeling SO heavy in my belly these past several weeks! And this little guy moves like crazy and has some really strong kicks! I don't remember Presley feeling this strong, but I could be wrong.

Geesh! I thought I would never get this thing done!! I started working on a "quiet book" for Presley back in August of 2012 and was doing everything by hand. Drawing my own patterns, hand cutting and sewing everything...... It was a very slow process. And then I got the shock/surprise of finding out I was pregnant, and I completely forgot about this book. (well I didn't forget, I just couldn't think about pulling it all out and working on it)
So for 5 months it just sat there in my craft room, until I finally got the courage to pull it out and try to get it done. Presley inspired me to try again by being very restless and hard to entertain at church.
I decided to give myself a bit of break and used my sewing machine on the edges of the pages. But most everything was sewn by hand.
Josh hated when I would work on this thing because I had to have so many different crafty items out and it made a big mess.
In the end I am very happy with how it turned out! I had a hard time letting Presley play with it because I spent so much time making it, I was worried she would destroy it right away lol.
It's survived so far so that's good!
(This button page is her favorite for some reason.)
I love my little animals I made! I think the elephant is super cute!!
I feel so relieved that it's done! And I now know how hard and time consuming it is so I doubt I will ever try to attempt to make another, lol. I hope Presley appreciates it! ;)

Back in November Miki broke her leg while jumping off of the couch. We got it splinted and were hopeful that it would heal since it was a clean break. Well when we went in for her follow up x-ray at the end of December, we got some really bad news, it had not healed. It was actually worse looking than before.
We were told that surgery was the only option, and it was a huge price tag to get that surgery done! I had a very hard time trying to figure out what to do. I knew I couldn't spend $4,000 to get surgery for her, but I also knew I couldn't put her to sleep over a broken leg. I got a hold of some Pomeranian rescues and found some people that were willing to take her and get her surgery done and adopt her out.
I made the extremely hard decision to give her to a rescue here in Arizona. I've had Miki since she was 6 months old, so for about 6 years. It was really hard and sad to have to give her up, but I'm also really happy that she is getting the surgery and after care that she needs.
I'm going to miss this little girl!

At one of Presley's recent Doctor's appointments, her Dr found that she has a slight heart murmur. We were referred to a cardiologist and finally had the appointment in early January.
They ran some tests on her, which she wasn't really fond of. But the results were good, they think it's an "Innocent" murmur. One that shouldn't cause her any issues and might just go away. So in several years we will go and have it checked again, but other than that they said she is good to go! Thankfully!
She got to wear a cute little hospital gown :)

Say hello to the newest member of our family.... Bunny!
One day while shopping, Presley wouldn't stop crying for some reason. I grabbed this bunny off a shelf to try to distract her, and it worked. But then I just couldn't get myself to take it away from her when it was time to check out, so she got to keep bunny.
Ever since then, bunny has been her best friend! She sleeps with her and bunny will make everything better.
I better go and buy a backup bunny, just in case something ever happened to this one. lol
