Memorial Day and our trip to the National Zoo!



A few weeks ago we took a quick trip up to DC to visit my sister and brother-in-law! While we were there we decided to stop by the National Zoo and see the baby panda! It was hotter than hot that day! The first hour that we were there, everyone was sweating, grumpy, crying, and the animals were hiding in the shade. And then there was the fact that Ande was extremely disappointed in the actual size of the "giant panda." Because giants are supposed to be giant sized in the mind of a 7 year old! I was so close to calling it quits, but we stuck it out anyway! Lunch and a cool treat definitely brightened our spirits! After the zoo, we made the long metro ride back to our hotel and cooled off in the hotel pool!

We have loved taking these quick weekend trips with the family lately! The boy's love riding the metro, experiencing a big city, and squishing together on hotel beds! 

Above is a fun little video we put together of our day at the zoo!

bump update :: 32 weeks


How is it possible that time is simultaneously flying by and dragging on? The months of April and May are such a blur. We were busy with kid sports most weekends, we went on a couple trips, had a few birthdays (including my 31st! Ahh!), and yet I can hardly remember anything else I did. What I do remember is being sick with a mutant head cold that I thought would never go away! 

Lucky for me, I finally feel better and school is officially out for summer! The boys and I plan to spend the remaining weeks of this pregnancy getting all of their energy out at the pool while I lounge in the cool water! We also have a fun beach trip planned and then a few weeks later, we'll be welcoming this little gal into our home! Summer is the greatest!


Now on to a little "bumpdate:"

How far along? When the pictures were taken and as I'm writing this I'm 32 weeks. As you read this, I'll be at 33! 

Craving? I have never really had any abnormal pregnancy cravings. I still like all the things I always like. I do, however, seem to detest eggs lately. Even the thought makes me nauseous.

Sleeping? I've had a pretty rough time sleeping the past few weeks, but I've got a little bed time routine now that definitely helps relax me! I'll have to share more later!

Wearing? I'm at the stage where nothing fits, even my maternity clothes are getting tight. Lucky for me, it's summer and I've been wearing a lot of flowy dresses and bathing suits! 

The dress pictured is a new favorite that is not maternity, but fits my bump perfectly! You can get it here, at one of my favorite online shops! I live in my Salt Water Sandals, and I recently got this bathing suit and love it!

Feeling? Baby's head is officially down, but she hasn't quite moved down yet so I get a lot of great kicks to the ribs lately! But all the kicking leads to some great moments with the boys and Curtis. They've gotten to feel her and see her move and that is really precious!

Buying for baby? My favorite recent baby girl purchase has to be these swaddle blankets

Crazy dreams? YES! I keep dreaming about leaving Milo at home alone. It is the absolute worst nightmare ever. I dreamt we were driving home late at night and forgot that we left Milo home alone. As we pulled up to our neighborhood we found him walking down the street. It was horrifying. I must be feeling anxious about him not being the "baby" anymore, but he doesn't seem to be too concerned about it. Thank goodness they're just dreams! Ugh!
