34 Weeks

I can hardly believe we only have 6 more weeks! Time is approaching very quickly! I even told Michael we need to get the infant car seat down out of the attic soon, which makes it really real for me! 

Weight: 26 lbs. Same as last week.
Sleep: I really can not complain. I have found if I drink little water in the evening then I can go more hours in between getting up to pee, but then I wake up first thing and run to the fridge for some water!
Mileage: 6 miles. I am happy with this. At this point I am really happy if I even get up. That is a pretty big accomplishment right now, since I am about the size of an elephant.
Miss Anything: BENDING OVER! I am so ready to be able to pick up toys, laundry, etc and not groan in the process.
Cravings: I can not say that I have been craving much lately, because honestly there is not much room in there for food anymore! But I sure am looking forward to some Halloween candy! I purposely have not bought any because I know I would have already broken into it.
Looking Forward: to the arrival of our little boy! I am getting more and more anxious everyday. I have my 34 week appointment this week and I always love hearing how he is doing.

Our Weekend

We have had quite the weekend full of friends and family, nothing gets better than that! Our weekend began a day early when one of my very good friends and her two children, Olen Ray and Chelsea, came for a visit.

These kids have been friends since before they were born. Even though we do not live close, they will always be friends!

Then Friday evening our God children, Madison and Meredith, came for a visit before heading to the Clemson Homecoming. It is always a joy when these girls get to come and spend time with us! We look forward to the next game to get a chance to see them again!

On Saturday one of my very good friends threw David Michael a shower. It ended up being a lot of family and food! More about the shower later...

I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did!

33 Weeks

This week I officially feel BIG. I can not longer get comfortable, I feel bad not being able to get on the floor and play like Grace would like me to, and bending over is a thing of the past. My fingers and face look swollen almost all the time now too. I have officially quit picking up Grace except to put her in the grocery cart, just about everything else she can climb and do on her own.

Weight: 26 lbs. YUCK!
Sleep: This week I think I have been so exhausted that sleeping has actually been pretty good. It also helps with the cooler weather! I love not being hot!!!
Mileage: I am embarrassed to admit I only got in 2 miles this week. I am not sure what came up. However, that being said... David Michael's room is officially painted. All the doors in our house are now painted and hung. (Thanks to my amazing and hardworking husband!)
Miss Anything: Being able to lay on the floor and play with my favorite little girl.
Cravings: This week I have been eating a lot of grilled cheese. I do not think I really was craving it, but I sure did not hate eating it.
Looking Forward: On Saturday one of my very good friends is throwing David Michael a shower and I am very much looking forward to spending time with friends and family! (And of course I love looking at little baby stuff!)

32 Weeks

The Braxton Hicks have been in full swing lately. They actually started about 24 weeks, but have grown in intensity lately. Which means for me mentally I am just getting that much more ready! Went to the doctor this morning and found out that David Michael is head down!

Weight: 24 lbs. This is the same as two weeks ago. I am really trying to watch what I eat, but I seem to be pretty hungry lately.
Sleep: Sleep has been vary sparse lately. Mostly because of Grace... She is now officially in a big girl bed. Which means we get up a lot of night and do not have as much down time in the evening because we are making her stay in her bed.
Mileage: 7 miles. Getting back into the swing of things after vacation. Feels good to back into a routine, but I sure do miss sitting on the beach!
Miss Anything: Being comfortable. I long to be comfortable again! Just to lay down and be comfortable. Now even laying down something hurts, or I have heartburn, or I can not breath.
Cravings: Still anything cold. I really do want a turkey sandwich too, but I will wait till he is born.
Looking Forward: David Micheal's arrival! I can now see it in the forefront!

Grace's First Beach Trip

This past week we took Grace to the beach for the first time. We had been wanting to take her for quite sometime. Finally we found a good deal at an awesome place. We spent three nights at Myrtle Beach as a family. This trip was a long time coming and we desperately needed some time to refresh and regroup as a family before David Michael arrives!

Nothing scares this girl! She is fearless of the water, waves, slides, pretty much everything. However, she LOVED all the sand and wanted to play and roll in it all day. Grace's daddy made her castles, a HUGE hole to slide into and various sand creations to play in.

The hotel we stayed at had two water slides and a kiddie pool that Grace could not get enough of. I was nervous at first about the water slides, but with help from her daddy she safely made it up and down more times than I can count!

These are memories I will treasure for a lifetime. I can not believe my little baby is growing so quickly. I love her more than words can say and cherish these times. She truly does make me a better and much more happy person.

31 Weeks

It blows my mind that we are now down to single digits! Only 9 more weeks! In my mind I am mentally preparing myself for less than 9 weeks. If he follows in his sister's footsteps than we only have 7 more weeks!!! (I guess I need to start getting things together)

Weight: On vacation and could care less this week. Just laying around and enjoying some much needed rest time.
Sleep: Well it has been as good as expected. I can fall asleep really early, but then wake up with my hips hurting pretty bad. Because Grace decided she now knows how to climb out of the pack n play I have been going to bed with her to help her stay in bed and fall asleep. Which means I have been falling asleep around 8pm. In turn I wake up for good around 5 and am up for good.
Mileage: Vacation. I am clueless how many miles, but I do know we have been doing a lot of walking.
Miss Anything: Being able to run. This weather has been amazing and that is one thing I love about vacation is being able to run whatever time of the day.
Cravings: Really anything cold. I have been so hot and feel like I can not get cooled off.
Looking Forward: to the rest of the week spending it with my family! It is so nice to finally have sometime where we can focus completely on each other and not think about any other commitments.
