35 weeks

Comfy with the help of numerous strategically placed pillows.

Only 5 weeks left in this pregnancy (maybe less???). Whew! It's been quite something. The physical toll has been oodles more significant this time. Reason being I am quite busy keeping up with my toddler, and I have a feeling this baby boy will be bigger than she was. He moves around LIKE MAD. I am shocked by the intensity of the movement every day! I am waddling so much it's kind of embarrassing. I know most people don't think I look really huge, but my belly is just so prominent! I see people looking at me when I'm out and about and I'm thinking "yes yes ok i am very pregnant!!"

But really I still have to say that I love being pregnant. I just love it. I realize these last two statements don't match up with everything else in this post. But while it's so physically taxing, and draining, and uncomfortable even painful, I am just so thankful for the baby in me, and for the health he and I have had during these last 8 months.

Dear little boy, your dad and your big sister and I will meet you so soon! And I just know you are going to be a wonderful baby and grow into a happy little boy. We love you. We have a name picked out for you, and we can't wait to share it with everyone when you arrive. I am praying your delivery will be smooth, I promise to try my hardest to bring you here safely, I can't wait to hold you!!

Amelia update! 19 months

taking sips of Dad's iced tea, wielding the giant cup like a pro

oh ya, get that tongue on that nasty looking swing seat. 

this sweet little profile

Amelia at this age is:
very difficult to photograph!
a handful (a euphemism if I ever heard one)
the cutest, funniest little girl ever with her expressive face and personality
working on those language skills! she says probably around 12 ish or 15 words, with more popping out all the time.
 this week her new ones are: AHHHEEECE (ice) BAHHHHHEEEE (bike)
She now sleeps in her little bed, no longer the crib. The bed transition was too easy, she has not gotten out of it and slept through the night every night! (so far)
I love her so!!!
It sure is tough having a toddler and being pregnant, and I daily feel like "wow, I need a break!" but she is such a joy and watching her grow is amazing.
