We’ve been so blessed to be surrounded with loving family and friends since we moved to Las Vegas! It’s so hard to imagine not being able to see them whenever we want to, but that day is fast approaching. This weekend we had a lovely family dinner with Patrick’s grandma and papa, his parents, and aunts and uncles. I’ve really cherished being able to get to know Patrick’s family so much better during our time here, and will truly miss them! Here are Patrick’s grandparents:
and his parents with his aunt and uncle:
I was also able to spend time with two of my closest friends here in Vegas this weekend! We all have kids that are born in the same month/year, and it’s been so amazing to see them grow up together over the past two years!
We got together for an afternoon tea…loved the cream scone with strawberry jam and whipped cream 🙂 Lots of girl/mommy talk…I am going to miss them so much!!
If you couldn’t tell from the above pictures, my baby bump is getting bigger and bigger! I’m 31 weeks now (only 9 more weeks to go!) At the party, people were saying they didn’t think I would go much more than 6 weeks based on how big I’m getting, but I hope I can hang on until at least 39 weeks! Our daughter was only 2 days early, and I’m feeling so comfortable, that I’m hoping this little guy stays in there for another 2 months 🙂 He’s moving around a TON. I can actually feel his little limbs (elbows, knees, feet) and he’s long enough now that he’s gotten me in the ribs a couple times! My energy level has gone down a bit, but I’m sleeping well and as long as I take a short nap in the afternoon while Malia is sleeping, I’m good to go! No pregnancy aversions or cravings these days, although I’m definitely leaning towards salty and cheesy over sweets. I’ve been doing hip/SI joint stretches to help prevent sciatica, and so far so good! All in all, I’m really glad that things are going so well and am feeling good about traveling/moving in the coming week. Thank you guys for all your support and excitement about our coming move! You’re making me feel more excited and happy about it too 🙂
