Mother's Day

This year was my last Mother's Day as a mom to one and next year I'll have two little boys to celebrate with. We went out to lunch with my family and I didn't take a single photo. Fail. After making a quick stop at home where I received some thoughtful cards and beautiful flowers from J and Ben, we headed to J's parent's house where Ben got to try out their new trampoline. And by Ben I mean Ben and J.

A trampoline is fun whether you're 4 or 31.

After visiting with J's parents we headed over to his aunt's house for dinner. The whether was perfect and all of the cousins played tag together.

Ben and J's mom. 
Love him.

34 Week Bump Update

As usual, this is a little late :)

Size of the baby: 18 inches long and weighing in at 4 3/4 lbs! Size of a canteloupe.

Total weight gain: I honestly can't remember,  but I think around 27 pounds. I'll find out Tuesday at my Dr.'s appointment. My feet have been swelling like crazy especially at the end of the day. Hello cankles! 

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants, mix of both maternity and regular tops and maxi dresses and skirts. I can't wait to wear all my old clothes again.

Sleep: Getting worse. It's really hard to get comfortable and my back has been killing me.

Gender: It's a boy!

Movement: Still lots, but he's running out of room. He's had the hiccups a few times and just last night J and I sat and watched my entire belly move for almost 20 minutes.

Food cravings/aversions: Cravings-lots of fruit, especially apples and grapes & peanut butter M&Ms. Aversions-none 

What I miss: Being comfortable, wearing my old clothes, a glass of wine/margarita.

Moment of the week: Getting the nursery closet cleaned out and organized.
