Lazy Sunday

We had a wonderfully restful weekend. Not much on our agenda, but rest. And it was much needed! Aside from church this morning, Jonas and Grace took long afternoon naps and I actually watched a movie!! I watched Soul Surfer. It was a good movie.
Here are a few pictures we took this afternoon. This picture looks like Grace is begging Jonas to take her off-roading! We love her hugs. She gives such great hugs!!
We though it would be a good photo op to get Grace next to Max and Zeus. She looks pretty small next to Zeus! While we were hanging out outside, Zeus walked by and whacked Grace on the face with his tail...that was bound to happen!!
And here I am looking oh so very pregnant! I'm 29 weeks now. 11 more to go. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is whizzing by!! We met a neighbor tonight who only has one month to go in her pregnancy...and her belly was a lot smaller than mine!! What's up with that?!?!
Hoping you have a great week! It's busy, busy for us again. I'm counting down the days till maternity leave!!
Blessings,
Beth

Nursery Banner

Happy Friday! It has been another very long week! And I am so glad it's the weekend. I am now almost 28 weeks pregnant and officially in the third and last trimester. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is moving along and how big I am getting! I'm getting a lot of comments about how I look like I'm ready to pop! Not ready yet, but I definitely feel ready! I walk slowly these days!
I've had a lot of projects on my mind to do and one of them was making a banner for Caleb's room. I have a lot to do in preparation for his arrival...like organize his room and have a yard sale. My scrapbook room will become his nursery. Not sure what I'm going to do with all my scrapbook stuff or where it will go, but it must be put somewhere else!
The banner is quite large. Jonas picked out the shapes so that it would look masculine. I used K & Company paper from their baby boy collection and cut out the animals from a Cricut cartridge: Animal Kingdom. I like how it turned out.



His nursery will be decorated in a Noah's Ark theme. This banner will fit right in. I've got more ideas for picture frames. Next up, I'm making Sesame Street numbers for Grace's room.
Blessings,
Beth

Speaking In Tongues

It's Saturday and I did nothing, but enjoy my family. It was great! Well, actually, I did do a bit of crafting this afternoon. Grace took a four hour nap today!! She was making up for a very tiring week. She is transitioning herself from two to one nap a day...much to my dismay.
Here she is showing us all kinds of new sounds and ways to move her mouth. I have a feeling she will be talking in now time. And she's quite the talker now...she communicates to us with such emotion and cute facial expressions. If only we knew what she was trying to say to us.

Isn't she just so cute? Well, we think so.
I'm about 27 weeks pregnant now. This is such a different pregnancy from my first. I am feeling now what I felt toward the end of that pregnancy. And I am big! I still have about 3 more months to go! It seems like a long time left for all that I am feeling now.
Blessings!

Craziness!

Wow! I'm back into the full swing of work and it has been crazy! If for not Grace and Jonas, I would be a huge, massive stress ball! It's the 2nd week of school and I'm not sure if pregnancy hormones are to blame (I'm sure they have some part in my inability to cope), but the whole start of school, schedule changes, and appointments galore are driving me crazy! So time to take a serious chill pill and believe it or not, scrapbooking is helping me cope. Even though I have been tired at home, I have been crafting. I've done some scrapbooking and am in the middle of two projects. One for Grace's room and the other for our soon to join us baby boy. Can't wait to share!
In the meantime, I'll share a few pictures of our little sweetheart.
Here she is getting her 2nd haircut by her favorite hair stylist...daddy!



And the finished product! Tada! Daddy sure did a good job. Grace doesn't leave hair ties or bows in her hair for very long so we're forced to give her bangs so we can keep her hair out of her eyes. This haircut makes us a bit sad because it makes her look more and more like a toddler than our sweet baby girl.
Blessings!
Beth
