happy birthday, baby!

 . . . and just like that, she is 2!  We had such a fun time celebrating this weekend.  Above right is a little sneak peek of her party.  I hope to share more soon!  We also went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens on her birthday to see the Christmas lights, which was a real treat, since she doesn’t recall Christmas lights from last year, nor was she really old enough to appreciate them.  It was a wonderland to her, and she had fun running all over the place in the dark after bedtime, taking in all the prettiness.  After such a weekend, I’m a little worn out, especially when topped off with being unable to sleep while pregnant.  It’s not that I’m so uncomfortable yet, but more that my mind doesn’t seem to shut down at night.  Do any of you have that challenge?  At any rate, I’ll be a little quiet on the blog this week (other than a BHG post tomorrow), as we enjoy spending time with family and celebrating Thanksgiving.  Chip and I will also be taking advantage of some time off to make some plans for Lay Baby Lay site updates, so we should have some exciting things happening soon!  I hope all of you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Birthday to you’re little one – I’m also having trouble falling and staying alseep at 24 weeks pregnant. My sister has purchased me a pregnancy pillow for Christmas, but I too feel that it has more to do with my brain not being able to switch off.

    In my third trimester, I remember sleeping being challenging. I couldn’t shut off my mind either but, don’t worry it’s only temporary ; )

    I’ve been doing a few things that have (sorta) been helping with sleep…no computer past a certain time and a few relaxing yoga poses in pajamas right before bed.
    I also wanted to let you know I love your blog and nominated it for the Blog on Fire Award. Happy Thanksgiving! ~Angela@veggievinyasa

    I’m 28 weeks now with my second baby, and sleep has been a challenge for weeks! My OB recommended a pre-bedtime concoction of warm milk with cinnamon, and a banana with peanut butter. It seems to help! Might be worth a shot.
