Ticking along

Just noticed my pregnancy widget/ticker thing and thought it was worthy to post:
30 Weeks so far
70 Days left
10 Weeks to go
210 Days so far, YAY!

In other news, we have decided to take a VERY last minute vacation to Chicago. This will be the last trip with just the three of us before baby Eva arrives. Not too sure what the near future holds, but we look forward to a new life.
Edward amazes me everyday. I so wish that I would have taped his reaction yesterday when I first showed him "Eva Mae's" newborn diaper. He was absolutely delighted and in unbelief/awe by it's size. He then found some newborn shoes and now I can hardly get them out of his hands. He's been carrying them all around and occasionally putting them up to my belly to see if they will fit Eva's little feet. He's definitely getting excited about having a baby sis around soon.
I've been enjoying the nesting phase lately and getting a lot done. I just completed the whole long process of stripping, sanding, and staining two dressers for the kids rooms. I was really excited to find handles that were reasonably priced, fit correctly, and most importantly ones I liked. Pictures to come, I promise.
And lastly, I don't remember hitting the third trimester with my first pregnancy and being SOOOO uncomfortable. Either I have forgotten or I was in MUCH better shape...or something. Almost the exact day I hit the 28 week mark things have gone down hill. The bathroom is my best friend lately, thank goodness for my comforting body pillow, and discomfort/pain/feelings of HUGENESS, well, I could go on and on. I'm already tired of the complaining too.
Anyways, thanks for listening.

Sleepy Wrap

I just found this Sleepy wrap at a local thrift store and I am really excited to try it out when our baby girl arrives. Just wondering how many of you used the same or similar wraps for your babies. I've been experimenting with it already and I think it's going to be pretty comfortable. I used a Baby Bjorn with Edward and found that my back would bother me a lot. It also wasn't as versatile as this one seems to be. I've also heard a LOT about the Moby wrap. I chose this one because it was in great shape and really cheap.

Call me crazy, but I am getting so anxious and excited for the upcoming Old Navy sale...just not sure when it will actually happen. SOOO, if you hear any news ladies, let me and the rest of us know.
Also, I'm trying to decide what size to buy for Edward for next summer. He is wearing 2T's at this point. Would you buy 3T or 4T? I need your advice, thanks!

End of June, Beginning of July

This Summer is FLYING by for our family. So much has happened in such a short amount of time. The Lord has certainly been a great comfort and help in these last few weeks. We are looking and trusting in him for all things to come.

My sweet cousin Elisha came back from OR for a quick visit. Only a few of the 20+ cousins were able to get together.

Anna and myself got to meet Shawn Johnson...she's really short!

Yay for VIP passes

A highlight for Edward at the 4th of July Conference.

The "thunderboomers are loud!"

Third trimester, can't wait to meet this little girl.
