Baby Three: 15 Weeks

Today is 3/22/20 which means I’m 15 weeks! Baby Lamotta is due 9/13/20! Baby is the size of a yellow canary. Baby Lamotta is a GIRL. According to the sneak peek test I did at 8 weeks, we are having another girl! My symptoms definitely felt girl to me.

If you’re considering Dollywood and you’re bringing a toddler along, I hope this post helps prepare you. It’s always best to plan ahead but we all know how unpredictable toddlers are! You need…
