Baby #3

Soooo, this may be a little overdue, but...

I'm pregnant! And it's a boy!

This is the first time we've tried for a baby (our boys were, um.. surprises!) We started praying late last year for clear direction on when to add to our family, and found out we were pregnant in February! 

Here's our little bean at 7 weeks

Our boys making the announcement for us. They're VERY excited!

Around 9 1/2 weeks

12 weeks

16 weeks

17 weeks

18 weeks and on our way to the gender ultrasound! Spoiler alert - it's a BOY!

I made these gender reveal cupcakes to take to family night that night. 

Green for boy. Baby Gavin is on the way!

20 weeks and halfway there!

21 weeks. I don't have a full length mirror at home, but there's one at Kohls!

These 2 pictures were taken 2 weeks apart. Both times Gavin had his hand by his ear. I'll bet he'll play with his hair or ear when he's tired - can't wait to see it in person!

22 weeks!

As far as pregnancy symptoms, as per my other pregnancies, I feel pretty good! I have no actual side effects that really bother me. I had mild nausea here and there in the first trimester but never threw up. Surprisingly, I have also been less exhausted than I was with my boys! They both still take a nap in the afternoon so I lay down and rest and 15 minute power nap is enough to get me through the day. I'm so thankful for easy pregnancies! Who knows what kind of pregnancy I would have if it was a girl, I'd probably be sicker than a dog, ha!

Gavin's due date is November 5th. It can't get here soon enough!

life rearranged

Owen started soccer! It's pretty adorable. Yes, it's a bit crazy to do soccer in the middle of summer in AZ but it's also crazy to stay cooped up in the house with a 3 and 4 year old!

His first game was last Saturday. All the kids took turns being a goalie. When Owen wasn't standing around with his jersey over his head, he was doing a great job hustling and dribbling the ball!

My 26th birthday was on the 15th. Ryan had classes the day before and most of my birthday, so Dad, Lynn and Jesse came to take me out for dinner. We went to my favorite mexican place - On the Border. The boys did great and we ended up visiting for 2 hours!

The morning of my birthday Ryan had to leave for school pretty early. He did leave a card and gift cards around the house and in the car for me to find! <3 p="">

After a fun morning of Zumba I headed to the mall with Ruth and my boys. She captured these shots of my boys loving on me. When Ryan got home from school we went out for a night on the town with Jeff & Ruth. Carrabba's for dinner (shocker) and then to see Man of Steel (laaame). Unfortunately I didn't get any pics that night. We were too busy having fun!

My birthday necklace arrived! It has the first initials of all 3 of my sons. I looove it and am almost afraid to wear it because it's so pretty and dainty!

We've been doing a lot of this lately: 

Because the weather has been like this lately:

So I've been drowning my sorrows in this lately: 

The other morning I came into the kitchen and saw Owen at the table quietly eating a breakfast that he had gotten out himself. He got his own bowl, spoon, poured his own cereal with milk, without making any mess. He just seemed so grown up to me in that moment!

Nana & Papa went with us to see Monsters University! Our movie theatre has new recliners with buttons to recline them up or down. You can imagine that kept our boys busy for a while, ha!

The 4th of July was a fun, nice family day. I made these festive pb&j's for the boys. 

Fireworks with the fam! See Austin and Lexie holding hands in the top pic?
Made a nice summer change from brown to blonde today!

And I'm not kidding, I really am going to get a pregnancy post up SOON!
