bump update :: 38 weeks

I'm very determined to finish these posts out to the end, even if they end up being a week behind. And hey, hopefully only one more!!
Next appointment, this Friday, we are talking about scheduling an induction date. I'm scared out of my mind to be induced, but it may just have to be time. My doctor says any time between 40 and 41 weeks, and I'm leaning towards waiting until 41, so we will see what is decided. It makes me so happy that either way, we will have our baby in our arms by mid-January!!!

a merry, merry Christmas

39 weeks pregnant at Christmas, so ya know, here are the 7 photos I took.. :)
 We spent Christmas Eve in Waxahachie with family. Dinner and desserts were unbelievably delicious as usual. Christmas morning, Blake and I woke up slowly, had a small Christmas breakfast and watched Christmas Story until my parents came over. We opened presents and had a big Italian lunch from Buca at the house. The rest of the weekend was spent with Blake's family. We opened more presents, ate a lot of good food, got hooked on Chopped, and spent a lot of time relaxing (or maybe that was just me..)
It was different this year, because baby and I couldn't travel, so family came to us. 
It was sad to not see most of our other family members, but it sure was nice to stay in Dallas, have some sweet alone time, and host company at our house before the baby gets here!
I'm feeling unbelievably grateful for this season, and this year. I quickly forget how much God loves and cherishes me, so to sit still in this season and read of God's promise to His people is so refreshing.
Merry Christmas!

bump update :: 36 weeks

We had to move the picture location. One, because it's CHRISTMAS, and two, because baby things were taking over the dining room. From here on out, you can find me by the tree :)
I'm seeing my OB every week now, which is sort of thrilling. Every time we leave she says, see you next week unless I see you sooner.... !! It may be becoming real. Seriously, any day now!

phoenix, az

Blake and I were in Phoenix this past weekend!
Blake had an interview, and we got to spend the best 3 days with all of the Kimmels.
We ate delicious desert food, played games way past my bedtime, hiked, saw the most beautiful sunsets, and hung out with Hayes and Kyler a ton. It's only been about 6 months since they've moved from Dallas, but I do miss them, a lot.
Just a few random photos from the weekend.

bump update :: 34 weeks

watch out, 9 month pregnant lady hiking!
I'm 35 weeks today, so this post is a little late, but here she is.
I've hit a wall. It's now hard to walk, stand up, stay on balance, sleep, lay, drive. Don't mind all the complaining. My body just hurts. It's like everything was fine one day, then the next I woke up and the third trimester tiredness and aches just took over. 
Good news, we will hopefully have a little baby boy in our arms around this time next month! whoa.
