Baby does Yoga.

My midwife said judging from the heartbeat...
Baby will be a relaxed little girl,
or get my roller skates on because I'm going to be chasing one busy little boy.

It's been a while since I've been pregnant...
I forgot how active these little bundles of joy can be! and the stretching! Youch!

I told Jeff a few weeks ago the baby knows yoga already...standing in reverse warrior pose often.
But I love it. I have always enjoyed being pregnant.

My girls never knew me pregnant....
Allison was only 19 months old when I had Sophia and the girls are the youngest in our family.
They have been loving feeling the baby move and guessing what body part is poking out.
They kiss my stomach and talk to the baby all the time. They are so excited! and I am excited for them.

33 1/2 weeks and I STILL can't believe we're having another baby.
I'll have to tell you the whole story of how this came about...8 years later...
...when we thought we were not going to have anymore children.

But not now.

Now I have to put away the salsa I just made.
Let me give you a little tip before I sign off here....
...When the recipe says you can substitute apple cider vinegar for white vinegar and your white vinegar is in the basement pantry and you have apple cider vinegar in your kitchen and you are feeling lazy....
DON'T do it!

From the mouths of my children....
What stinks???
Why does it smell like poo in here?
What smells like stinky feet?
Ewwww....what is that smell?
Hey, are we having tacos for dinner tonight? (at least one child appreciated the aroma ;)

Anyway, have a great night.


  1. You are beautiful. Your baby will be a blessing to you all, and doubly so for the girls. I see homeschooling with baby posts coming up. Those two are going to be great little mommy helpers. Family is beautiful :)

  2. I read Lisa's comment from Facebook, and it reminded me how just last night I made a comment about getting pregnant that could totally be taken the wrong way. Luckily, it was our really good friends, but Kendall had to make it worse by pointing out that I was blushing, something I don't often do!!

    I think you need a little boy, that way our boys can grow up "together." All of us enjoy watching this child's crazy antics. Sometimes I feel certain I know exactly what position he's in, and sometimes I can't figure it out, but that is just about the only fun thing about pregnancy right now. I am glad he is so active, but sometimes I do worry that I have another high maintenance child on the way!

  3. I am so excited about your little baby too! And he or she will be here before you know it. :)
    I think it would be so fun to have older children SO excited about a new baby. Not only are you thrilled to pieces, but the whole family is! What a loved little baby that will be!
    Also, why don't you just model for Gap Maternity?? You are just THE darlingest pregnant woman ever!!

  4. So fun! My SIL is having a baby girl, due in October and my girls have been enjoying rubbing her belly, feeling the baby move etc.. b/c Aleigh doesn't remember me being pregnant with the twins and Aves hasn't experienced either. It is fun to see them getting excited for their new cousin. Looking forward to "baby has arrived" post sooner then later....

  5. I'm so very happy for you! I can't wait to see the news pop up on my fb newsfeed. Very funny about the vinegar. LOL
