Week 25-28

My heart just melts when we get to see this baby's sweet face! Everything looked perfect at our big ultrasound and our little dude was as adorable as expected. He was curled up in the sweetest little ball (even though he feels like he is stretched out doing backflips) with his knees up by his head and little hands making fists. I love him already.

We've made our way to Utah to live for the past month while Chris is working so the second trimester has flown by. I can't believe we will meet this babe in a few short months. We've started a name list but a start is all we've gotten. Boy number three is hard to name and we are just waiting to find something perfect! Besides working on a name, we have a carseat and that's about as far as we've got.

Now we are headed back to Vegas next week to pack up our house and officially move to Utah. It took us four months but we finally sold our house. One less stress, thankfully! Now to find ourselves somewhere to live...

Week 20-24

Disneyland! ...again. This time we went with Chris' family.

Disneyland is always fun, especially with kids but being pregnant in Disneyland is a different story. Endless walking quickly turns into endless waddling. We put our annual passes to good use but I'm afraid this was our last trip for a long time. We could sing It's a Small World front and backwards by now and in 5 different languages.

Unfortunately, this trip brought back the splendid separated pelvic bone that Smith introduced us to.  Say goodbye to normal walking, squatting down or just carrying around a 1 1/2 year old. I forgot how awful this felt. Yesterday I wasn't thinking and started running while holding Smith and I almost thought this baby was going to slide on out. No good! Ouch!

On the other hand, we are getting excited to meet this little dude! Everyone asks if we'll have another blondie or brunette, curly or straight hair. I just hope we get a healthy babe! It's always on this paranoid mom's mind.


Yep, that's right... there is no week 15! We skipped it all together! When we were in Utah, I went to the doctor for an ultrasound (it costs the same there if we have 2 ultrasounds or 22 so we might as well). Baby was measuring 15w 1d and Utah didn't know about the previous Aug 4 due date, so they gave me July 27! Yaay for a week earlier! Not like it makes that big of a difference assuming this baby will come as early as his brothers did - Hayes came 4 days early and Smith 5.

We most definitely 200% were right at the 12 week appointment too. This baby is all boy! I kind of expected to be a little sad I wouldn't have a girl (this may be our last baby), but the thought of these three brothers being best friends is exciting. Maybe next time I see a pair of sparkly baby shoes it might hit me, but I kind of knew we were having a boy. I can't wait to have another boy to look up to Hayes... and now Smith too.

It's our last few weeks in Vegas, so we are saying goodbye to our friends and getting ready for a new adventure. I won't be sad trying to keep a house spotless with two boys around while we show it to people, but we'll definitely miss a lot of awesome people down here!

And just for the record, I look pregnant!!! Like, no questions as soon as the second trimester hit. Ha, my body knew what to do and here came a little bump!
