31 Weeks - Milam

June 21, 2016

We are now in the single digit weeks of the count down.  Well, maybe.  I mean, I guess I could go to 42 weeks...who knows.  But, for the sake of a count down we have NINE to go!  (The weather here is crazy...hence this week's picture.)

I'm feeling really good.  Big.  But good.  I'm up 12 or so pounds total.  We've been walking and swimming a lot.  My legs still get really tired and my arms so I'm trying to stay on top of drinking a lot of water.  My skin and reflux are on the up and up again so that's nice.

My view this week while trying to get in some lounge/exercise time
We've made really good progress on Milam's nursery and I'm really excited about that.  My mom is going to start painting his dresser and Jonathan and I have started painting the accessories.  It is coming together and I can't wait to see it finished.  My shower is in July so I'm guessing it will be "done" sometime after that.  Below is a picture of all of his clothes.  So many friends and family member have boys and I've received all of their hand me downs.  I'm so excited to meet him and dress him up :)  I had to empty his dresser since my mom is about to paint it.

Our Weekend - Father's Day 2016

June 20, 2016

Georgia has been rocking her swim lessons so after her lessons we've been taking her over to my brother's house to let her swim some more and get a little more practice.  She told me she was modeling here.
Milam and I are enjoying the pool as well.  The other day the "feels like" temp on my phone said 112 degrees.  Seriously.  Hopefully these last nine weeks don't cause too much swelling :/
Georgia make Jonathan and coozie at church.  The left is a lady bug and the right is her initials with a 5...because she's five...duh.
Her and I made the Yoda art and my mom took G to a local bakery to decorate a cake.  Jonathan loved all of it.
He is literally her favorite person on Earth.  I'm happy to be in second place.
After church she said, "since it's father's day I should plan some fun activities for dad and I to do together!"  So, her and her dad had quite the water activity afternoon.  He's such a trooper.

Friday Favorites - A BUSY week!

June 17, 2016

1. Vacation Bible School
I was the preschool art teacher for VBS.  I only taught two 25 minute classes and then I was done for the day.  Easy peasy!  After VBS there was a sports camp children 5 and up could participate in.  So, G was at church from 9-4.  She had a blast and was pretty upset yesterday about it being her last day.
Art class projects
My class entrance.  They had to "Swim" under the door and they loved it.
On Wednesday and Thursday she had gymnastics and swim after Sports Camp but on Monday and Tuesday we just curled up on the couch and watch TV until dinner and bed.  She's had a long busy week but was such a trooper.
2. Houston area summer weather
NOT a favorite of mine.  My sunglasses are always fogging up and it felt like 112 degrees...and I'm due at the end of August.
3. This guy!
He painted my toe nails and put on my shoes because I asked him :)
4. Summer Fun
5.  Hula Hoop Skills!
Happy "Summering" everyone!

30 Weeks - Milam

June 14, 2016

Week 30 has been a good one.  I'm only taking my reflux medicine about every other day and my skin is doing much better.  We've been super busy with VBS and other summer fun but I did manage to snag a picture and get this post up so YAY me.

We are still taking walks, I have an appointment this friday because I go every two weeks now (which is crazy to me...partly because the doctor who delivered Georgia didn't switch to every two weeks this early), no stretch marks, belly button is in, and no news on weight gain.

He moves ALL.THE.TIME.  The belly has officially started to get in my way.  I bump into things a lot and Jonathan puts on my shoes for me on occasion.  My round ligament pains can get pretty painful, which stopped with G in my first trimester.  They never went away with this one.  My leg muscles are constantly tired...like I just ran, which I DID NOT, but not so much crampy.  My energy is still pretty good which I'm happy about.  I'm still able to nest and clean and organize which I love.

I'm getting anxious in an excited way about his arrival.  A lot of pregnant people I know are starting to deliver so I just can't wait.  Georgia is really excited about her new role as big sister as well.  The nursery is still about 50% finished.  I have a shower in July so I'm kind of holding off on finishing the nursery until after that.  Although, there is a lot we can still do before then.

Summer has Started

June 13, 2016

Our summer has officially begun.  Jonathan's last day was Thursday and we've really enjoyed him being home.  We went to a free Star Wars orchestra night (Georgia is obsessed with Star Wars and her and Jonathan watch orchestra's perform Star Wars music every night before bed so this night could not have been more perfect.)  It was hot and humid but once the sun set we had a great time!
Her face when the Star Wars opening song came on!  So happy!
Before the show we went to CFA and did their challenge.  Super easy (since we typically do that anyway) and totally worth the free ice cream.
Now that it is summer G's dance classes are out so we have doubled up on gymnastics.  On Tuesdays she's in the bronze level class and on Wednesdays she is in Power Tumbling.  She's loving it.  We haven't decided if we will continue on or resign up for dance.  No smiles.  Working on her modeling poses.
 In other news her wiggly (wiggle induced by a run in with a flash light)  little bottom tooth finally fell out.  It had been about a week and a half since she hit herself and it was starting to turn gray so we were glad it came out.  I'm interested in seeing how long it will be until the adult tooth comes in.  It came out at 4am when she woke up and tried to wiggle it.  Instead it just fell out.  She woke us up of course to tell us about it and then slept until 8:30.
 The next night she put her tooth and a note in the pillow, in the hall, because a fairy in her room was way too scary.  Her note instructed the fairy to leave the tooth so she could put it in her tooth necklace.  The tooth fairy left a glittery dollar. 
 Jonathan and Georgia were super troopers and drove with me to a photo shoot at a new location.  The location was fun but it was humid and there were mosquitoes.  Luckily, I packed OFF and tons of it.  Georgia of course had her Rey stick in tow (Latest of the Star Wars girls).  Jonathan made it for her and she just loves it.
After the shoot we went out to lunch and did some shopping.
When we came home Jonathan worked on the yard and Georgia played in her kiddie pool and ate some smoothie pops.  Jonathan grilled for dinner and it was super yummy.
This week we are all off to VBS/Sports Camp.  A fun but busy week for sure...and binge watching Fixer Upper.

29 Weeks - Milam

June 7, 2016

29 weeks!  Only 11 or so to go!

A few things have popped back up this week that had been gone for awhile.  One being my reflux.  I had been off of my Nexium for awhile and then had to get back on it this week.  The other one is my skin.  My first trimester my face was looking pretty hormonal.  Second trimester it was back to normal.  Now, the hormones seem to have returned.

We are still taking nightly walks now that the rains seem to have gone and I'm trying to stay hydrated and eat well.  I had an appointment last week and am up 12 pounds total.

Milam moves all the time and can get pretty uncomfortable a lot of the time.  Still no stretch marks and my belly button is still a full on innie.

Georgia's Star Wars Gymnastics Party (Fifth Birthday)

Georgia had a great time at her 5th birthday party.  I still cannot believe my baby is FIVE!
(Her shirt is from Target)
We were going to do a backyard movie party and I am so glad we didn't.  It poured the entire day!  This party was quick and simple.  All the decor is from Target or something I whipped up on photo shop myself.  I bought the cupcakes at HEB the day of and I think it's the first time I've done "store bought" but hey, why not.  I made the toppers so there's that :)  I just placed them on two boxes covered in storm trooper paper.  Easy enough.
Jonathan was in charge of the camera.  I just talked to friends the entire time.  The gym ran the whole party so that was nice.  They even had the Star Wars soundtrack playing during the party.
I also made her invitation.  She loved them.
A similar invitation is in my Etsy shop.
