31 weeks and counting down....

This pregnancy has been a breeze, and I am only now starting to feel encumbered by this massive belly. Sydney has been nothing but a HUGE help and we just know she will slide right into the Big Sister role. She has already been practicing doting on her stuffed Monkey and Bear.

I love this shot of Shawn- have you ever seen a more contented smile? Sydney brings this smile to him every day.

Sydney LOVES rough and tumble play. She loves to jump and climb and swing and squeal. Such joy!

BULBOUS and counting down.

Knock Knock! Let me out!

I've been prepping Sydney for the new baby... telling her how labor works and so forth. Here it is explained to a two year old:

"Your baby brother is in Mommy's belly. Right HERE (point to belly). When it's time for baby to come out, baby will go, "Knock! Knock! Let me out!" (in falsetto baby voice). Then we will go see the doctor and baby will come out to see the doctor!"

Sydney thought about it, and then decided she would role play as the baby. She started yelling (in a falsetto baby voice), "ME OUT! HELP! HELP! STUCK!"

Memorial Day Munchies

We had a great date with family- I hope you did too! Unfortunately for our expanding waistlines, my family shows our love to each other by cooking awesome, sometimes yummy and always a little time-consuming dishes. Here was a slice of what was on our menu today:

Fried Pickles- A+

Marlboro Man's Chicken Sandwich- A+

Artisan Bread- A

Tomato Mozzarella Salad- B

Bomb Burgers - C (they really did bomb)

The baby really liked those fried pickles. I might have to start making those more often.

Memorial Weekend Swim Party!

Sydney got to swim for the first time this year. She took to it just like a fish! She was kicking her feet by herself (with arm floaties) and propelling herself back and forth to me, Shawn and Papa. I am so proud of her!

She has been loving to help Mommy plant and water in our yard. She loves when she can do things herself.

Sometimes there is trial and error period. She had quite a wet dress after this!

Funny face time!
