26 Weeks!

Hello! Well, I'm about 26 weeks pregnant, just a few more to go! I had a doctor's appointment this morning. I actually had to do the yucky glucose test. I drank the nasty orange drink and then had to wait an hour for them to take my blood. I was worried because when I took the test with Gavin, I got really sick. Today I did great! They even got my blood taken on the first poke!!

The appointment itself went great. As of right now, I've gained 11 lbs total. Dr. Chandler said that is not too much or too little, I'm right on track. We talked about me moving to KC and my concerns for when delivery time gets closer. He said that once it gets closer, we can decide what I need to do. He also told me that just when I'm getting miserably hot (and so is Summer!) that I'll have this baby and be able to enjoy the rest of summer. He told me that I wouldn't go into August and that we'll be having this baby the end of July! :) Yay! I'll post a picture later this week of my growing belly.

Just a regular update!

We are down to just days before the big move. The house still isn't packed, and I'm not quite ready. I'm definitely ready to be back with Jon though. I hate that he is missing out on most of this pregnancy and Gavin changing so fast! Gav can now talk like crazy! New favorite word: "Why?" He's so much fun!

My belly is growing like crazy! Here is a picture at 24 weeks. It's hard to believe that I'm beginning the third trimester! Won't be long until this baby is here! AHHHHH!

Easter/Spring :)

I should have posted these a long time ago, but I've been so busy! These are photos I tried to take of Gav for Easter and for Spring... the session went as usual. If you want to see all of the pictures check out my Flickr stream :)

Our big adventure!

At the beginning of April (I know I'm behind!) Gav and I took a trip to California to see my Uncle Jim, Aunt Kim and the girls. I was so nervous about the plane ride and dealing with Gavin, but he was perfect! We were so busy while we were there. We both came back home exhausted, but we can't wait to go back!

Getting ready for his first ride on the plane. He was a little nervous at this point.

This is the cool way to fly! :)


Gav and Mom at Fisherman's Wharf

Hanging out at the bay in San Fran. He loved the water and boats!

Day 2: Monterey

He wasn't loving the beach... it was cold!

Our toes in the sand :)


At Cannery Row in Monterey. We stopped to look out at the ocean. Gorgeous!

Gav and Dari at the beach. He was happier at this beach!

Even Woody came on the trip. The maid at our hotel did this!

Checking out the dolphins at Six Flags

On this trip, we finally got to meet little Miss Enakai. Gav loved her!

iheartfaces Challenge - Collage

I've decided to enter another iheartfaces contest. This week's challenge is a collage. In the fall, I took some family pictures and designed a collage for them. It's meant to be 20x20... so pretty big! I just loved that session and that collage! Enjoy!

Now, head on over to iheartfaces and check out the other awesome entries!!

My Cookie Monster

I caught the little stinker in the cookies today. So, you know me, I grabbed my camera. It was then that I decided to take advantage of the natural light coming in the window and get some shots without the flash. I hang out on a discussion board quite a bit and the ladies over there have inspired me! :) Bare with me. The first 2 are not the best, but I'm pretty satisfied with the others!

Cookie? Mouth full!What's that, Mom?
