Park Time!

We've had some amazing warm and sunny weather this month, which made one Saturday perfect to check out a new park with friends!

Lincoln says...

"I can't tell you any more of my great ideas because I have turned them into secrets!"

"Jesus is adorable!"

"Come on, Jesus! Let's go surf!" (As he pulls the baby Jesus from his nativity around on a paper airplane.)

(This is his new smile for pictures. Ugh...)

"I want to go to Bethlehem and see the manger."
"Becaise the manger is still there."
How do you know?
"Mangers stay where there is hay."

"Papa doesn't rake up hay very often, and he didn't make a manger. He has to make a manger if the baby is going to be born at the farm."

"The moon is still out! I think the moon is too excited for your birthday, mama!"

"Unicorse." (unicorn)

"Every night I have to dream about my great-grandpas because they died already."

"Mommy, Franklin loved his Grandpa Dale. He is sad because he misses his grandpa. It's okay, Franklin. I'm here." (kiss and a big hug to Franklin)

34 weeks

I've been meaning to post for a couple of weeks now and just haven't done it.

At my last appointment, I had a blood draw and my platelets have stayed level, so that's a good thing! I also talked to Dr. Fullerton about the different possibilities for a birth plan (what needs to happen for a VBAC to be possible, what other scenarios there are) and feel good about those options and that we are on the same page.

This pregnancy I've been craving citrus, especially oranges. Not orange juice, just fresh oranges and grapefruit and pineapple (does that count as citrus?). I feel more sore and tired than I had been, and the nausea has come back a little bit, but 6 weeks seems like no time at all. I'm about halfway (maybe a little more) done with long-term sub plans, but those have been getting harder and harder to work on. It's difficult to find the energy to do all my normal work plus plan months in advance! I have also been much more emotional this third trimester, which was definitely new to me.

Baby K is super active, and his movement are really strong. I don't remember feeling this much (or as forceful) movement with Lincoln, but he was also in a different position than this little one is.

Valentine's 2017

Lincoln was excited to give his friends sunglasses for Valentine's Day this year.

He sat at the table and diligently wrote his name, all by himself, on 11 cards for each kid in his preschool class. He was pretty proud!
