January 2016

Aside from MV, we also celebrate Mama, Nana, BB and Pap's birthdays in January!
Brad and I had a lunch date one weekend and did some shopping.  Fun for the whole family.  Ha.  On my actual birthday, I was able to eat a cupcake for dinner without getting sick.  It's the little things.  :)
MV went to Thomson on our birthday weekend to stay with BB and Pap. We had lunch there on Sunday to celebrate.
Here I am at 19 weeks.
And 20 weeks
With MV at 20 weeks. I lost so much weight with her, you could hardly tell I was pregnant at this point. Crazy!
We had Nana and Papa over for Nana's birthday. MV played ring around the rosey.
and all her birthday wishes!
singing happy birthday in the car one morning.  poor thing thinks every day is someone's birthday now.  Haha.
saying thank you after opening a gift from my cousin

Mary Van's 2nd

Mary Van turned two on January 12. On her actual birthday, she celebrated with cupcakes with her class at daycare. I couldn't make it to celebrate with them. In the future I will do breakfast so I can be there!
Papa came to visit and brought a Mary Van-sized Minnie Mouse.
On January 23, we had her birthday party. And it snowed! She had a blast playing the little that stuck.

The theme for her family birthday party was 'Cute as a Button.' I made some buttons out of ribbon and paper plates as a backdrop for her pictures.
Due to the snow, the Pennsylvania 5, Atlanta 7 and Athens 2 couldn't make it. We missed them!
Delicious cake made by Carrie Wolfe
We had cheese, snack mix and an edible arrangement.
Trying for the perfect shot. ;)
This Bailey Boys outfit is so stinking cute. She was not a fan of all the bows though. Haha.
We also revealed the gender of baby #2. This is the blue team
And the pink team.
Mary Van pulled open a Pinata full of blue kisses and baby items. It's a boy!!
We will welcome Worth William Shingler in early June.
BB's maiden name is Bloodworth (hence Worth) and Papa is William (Bill).
We are so excited!!
MV will be the best big sister!
Happy birthday to the light of our lives!!
