Oliver's First Balloon

We went to Red Robin last week for dinner and Ben got Ollie his very first balloon. He was in love!

30 Weeks!

I feel like I have officially started third trimester now that I am 30 weeks. Something about seeing that "3" really makes it feel real. Only two more months. Holy cow.

Last week I did the glucose test, and I am still waiting for the results. Since I havent heard back from them, I am assuming that everything is fine. I'm still getting lots of Braxton Hicks contractions all day, and they are getting stronger. As frustrating as they can be, its nice to know that my body is already working , and hopefully making labor that much shorter :)

As for my other baby, yesterday we went to the Tulip Festival with a bunch of other moms and babies his age, and had such a great time seeing the flowers, and stomping in mud puddles. I am SO glad I brought a change of clothes for him- he was totally soaked by the time we left. I did bring my camera, but the batteries died before I could take one picture. Bummer. Ollie has also become a talking machine, trying to repeat what we say, and trying tons of new words and sounds! He's our little genius ;)

And without further ado, here is the 30 week belly:

28 Weeks

Well, I have officially started the 3rd trimester of pregnancy! Hopefully time will keep flying by, because I cannot wait for her to come out! She moves around about 80% of the day, which is pretty tiring, but at least I know she is okay in there. I am still hungry every hour, but I think I have only gained 12 lbs so far- we will see at the next appt on the 23rd.

We are also counting down the days til the end of this school quarter for Ben. I cant wait for it to be over, and I know he feels the same way. Its been tough since he isnt home til 10:30 on the days he has school, and then has to get up early for school. He is doing really well tho, and never complains. He's my hero :)

Ollie is doing good as well, and is learning a bunch of new words. He says done, gone, no, lots of animal sounds and names. There are a lot more, but those are the newest additions. We are just going day by day, looking forward to June when little Eva joins our family, and also Oliver's 2nd birthday in July!

On Tuesday Mom and I and Oliver went up to Bellingham to visit Kathryn on her day off, and I did a little yarn shopping at the awesome yarn store they have up there. We got to see where she works, had lunch and got lost driving around :) We had a great time and took Ollie to the park by K's house. Here are some photos from our park adventure!
