37 weeks and counting!

Here we are!  Thirty-seven!  Baby girl and me -- just so thankful that we've made it this far and that it's been so blessedly easy!

I feel really good!  Weeks 30-34 were the roughest, but the last few weeks have come with a burst of energy for which I am so thankful!

Had an ultrasound at 36 weeks and girlie is head down, 5 1/2 pounds, and looking perfect!
Had my cerclage taken out yesterday and was a whopping ZERO centimeters dilated....
So I'm really thinking she'll stay tucked in for a while.

I'm still craving snow cones.  Icees.  Sorbet.  Anything cold and sweet.  Yummy.
Still exercising.  Still sleeping pretty well.  Still working.  Still chasing a toddler.  ;)
Still looking forward to the day when this little one comes out and I can see her precious face!

baby shower!

I am so thankful for four of my girlfriends who threw me an amazing baby shower this weekend.  I felt so loved and spoiled and celebrated.  Baby girl got tons of new outfits, blankets and nursery gear.  We are all ready to go!

summertime is coming!

And this is how an eight-and-a-half month pregnant momma and a tired little boy survive a long Tuesday afternoon when it's getting hot outside!

I just love this little man and how much he loves to be outside.  He's crazy with the water hose, he loves to get all wet and when I squirt him in the face and on top of the head.

Daisy came up and took a drink out of the hose and Luke thought that was hysterical.  I look down two seconds later and he's doing the same thing.  Oh well, at least he's not peeing in the yard!  :)

I think it's supposed to be in the 30s and 40s over the next few days which is crazy because it's been so hot.  Here we go, springtime in Texas!

family date night

This was one of the best nights ever.

If someone would have told me two years ago that I could get this much joy out of seeing my son find joy, I would have never believed.  But tonight.  Tonight I believe.

We were out to get some frozen yogurt and we saw a fire truck driving down the road. 
Luke loves fire trucks and got very excited, as usual when we pass one of the big rigs.

But tonight, even through ruby red grapefruit sorbet, he wouldn't stop asking for more firetrucks.  Over and over he would ask for more.  So Adam told him we'd drive around after dessert to look.

We stopped at the fire station by our house to show Luke where the firetrucks go night night.

There were two trucks in the garage and as we were sitting there, one of the men came out and told us we could bring Luke inside and take a look!

Then this happened.

They gave him a hat and let him go to town.  Little man was in absolute heaven.

Made his night.
My little introvert made this face all the way home.

Didn't say a word.  But just sat in his car seat, deep in thought.  Processing.  Thinking. 
Perfectly happy.

And the first thing he did when we got inside was find his fire truck and his Mickey Mouse fireman.

And he insisted on wearing his hat for the rest of the night.

As we speak, he is in his crib trying to fall asleep.  With his hat on. 
Best family date night.  Ever.  :)
