A visit from Mamaw and Papaw

We had such a great time having Brad's parents here with us.  The kids always have so much fun with them.  We did a couple of new things and we were able to show his parents a couple of our favorite things to do.  The kids were pretty bummed when mamaw and papaw left.  Jason always has a hard time with good byes.  He cries for about 15 minutes after they leave and then is just really down  the rest of the day.  It is really sad and it breaks my heart every time.  But we are excited to see them again soon.

25 weeks

I can't believe I am 25 weeks.  Actually 26 tomorrow.  This pregnancy has been super easy and it has gone by so fast.
  The kids love to ask questions about  my belly and the baby.  Any time I hold Bailey she asks if the baby is holding her because I usually use my belly to support her.  I also catch the kids with a baby doll up their shirt.  They are quite curious.  Jason started asking me some interesting questions like How did the baby get there? How will he come out?  We try to be as honest as possible but he is 4.... I don't think he really needs to know all the details right now.  
I was not happy with my first doctor I found down here so I recently switched and I feel like I am really going to like him. 
 This little guy inside me moves like crazy.  We just like to sit and watch my belly.  He is very active and it feels like he is doing somersaults in there.  I really have been enjoying this pregnancy.  It helps that I have two busy toddlers that help keep me distracted.  
We still don't have any idea what we are going name this little guy... It has been a little stressful for me because I am a planner and I just like to know these things in advance.  So we will just keep discussing the names we like and hopefully we can figure something out :-)

It is finally starting to get Hot down here in Texas.  Our lives pretty much consist of going to the park early in the morning, going to the pool, or going to a splash pad.  

I have been waiting months for Bailey is be able to wear this dress. She is just too cute!

When it gets too hot outside if we are not in the pool we usually have to stay inside.  Luckily the kids have been playing so well together.  

At the beginning of June we made a surprise visit to Indiana for my mom's 50th birthday! The only people who knew were my dad, Granny, and Aunt Jill.  It was a lot of fun to surprise my sisters and my mom.  

On the 9th of July this little bug turned 3! Since we have family coming into town in the next couple of days we decided to wait to do her party.  So on her birthday we spend the morning at the splash pad.  I let her chose what she wanted for lunch and she chose Chick Fil A.  And we got her a special birthday cupcake.  

 Opening her Huge card from Nana and Pappy.

I am now 23 weeks and I feel pretty darn good.  This pregnancy has been super easy.  I am starting to have some joint issues.  My hips and knees mostly.  Other than that everything is going great.  The baby is perfect and he is super active.  Brad and the kids get to feel him move all the time.  I do catch myself every now and then getting impatient and wishing he was here but then I stop myself.  I remember to enjoy this.  I am super excited for him to be here but I really am enjoying this pregnancy.

Cow appreciation day.  I know we are nerds!
 The cutest mooing cows I have ever seen :-)

Disney Cruise 2013 part 2

Bailey having fun at dinner

This was the best part of the cruise.  Castaway Cay!! Disney's private island.  It was a perfect sunny day with some storm clouds out in the distance.  The water was amazing and I have never seen water so clear.  It was like bath water.  You could see everything.  In the family beach area there are tons of smaller fish all over the place.  So cool.  

Me and my momma

 We saw 2 or 3 water spouts.  Pretty cool.

That night we ate at Palo.  That was the most amazing food I have ever had.  

 Last night on the ship :-( 
We had such an amazing vacation.  We spent over a year planning it and it could not have been better.  I a so grateful for time we had and the memories we made.  I can't wait to do it again.
