Blooming… For real!

Well it is spring and I am in full bloom, as you’ll see in some photos below. My belly is sure growing and so is our little guy. I am now at 32 weeks and 5 days. He is now the size of a head of lettuce and nearly 4 pounds. It is amazing how fast he is growing now…and me too. I have been doing lots of walking, or at least as much as my hips can manage. This helps me feel better about my gigantic appetite. I am really thankful that Katie is working on campus MWF so we walk for our lunch hours all around campus. Campus is my favorite place to walk because there is always a building with a bathroom nearby. This is why I haven’t ventured out on too many neighborhood walks…I am terrified of being stranded without a toilet.

Kris and I have been busy. Plumas is in escrow, so we are crossing our fingers and our toes that everything goes well, but as we know, nothing is for sure until the ink is dry on all final documents. It will be such a huge weight lifted to only be paying one mortgage.

Here on the home front, we have replaced the carpet in the two bedrooms, one of which will be the nursery. It looks really nice. Alisa and I refinished my old dresser for the nursery, it looks pretty darn good if we do say so ourselves! We also have the crib put together and they look so nice together. The dresser is blue/grey and the crib is black. I’ll wait till the room is more together to post any pictures. Kris has also begun to replace all of the electrical outlets with the tamper resistant type so junior doesn’t get shocked and we wont have to put those little annoying plugs in each one. He has also done something we had been wanting to do since we moved in: He replaced all the door hinges and door knobs out. They were all brass and now they are a nice looking brushed nickel. He is so handy, I am so grateful for all he does around here!

Our last little bit of fun was a quick trip down to Orange County where we attended a wedding for a girlfriend of mine who I studied abroad with, Allison. I am so happy I was able to make it and see her on her big day. She looks so happy with her new husband! So my picture from that day will serve as my week 31 picture, and today, Easter Sunday is my official week 32 pic, even though both of these are from the front, you can still get the point. And everyone can use a giggle at the facial expressions of my adorable husband–haha! I am also a little embarrassed about my week 30 pic, but I’ve stopped taking these weekly pics so serious. I was in work out-ish clothes, I must have gone for a walk or something. Anyway, here we go with weeks 28-32:

I think we skipped week 29 because I can’t find it…
