Life in Pictures

I have a bunch of pictures from my phone that I want to share, so this will just be a random life update with some pictures thrown in. :) I keep telling myself that I'm going to get back into blogging more regularly but the truth is that things are only getting busier so we will see what happens. In the meantime, here's what we've been up to:

-Our church started a new Christmas series on Sunday and the focus last week was Mary. They gave every woman a rose as part of the service. When I went to get E from Sunday School she was just thrilled that I had a "beautiful flower!"

-The weather has been amazing so we have been spending lots of time at the playground. Emerson doesn't mind one bit.

-Wednesday was my 32nd birthday! It was fun looking back on the blog at how I spent my last three birthdays. In 2010 I was 14 weeks pregnant with Emerson. It's hard to believe it's been 3 years. :)

To celebrate, Emerson and I had a little date at IHOP that morning. She was more than thrilled with her pancake and ate almost all of it!

-That night we went to dinner as a family. We were going to go somewhere nice but I was really craving a cheeseburger so I decided on In N Out. You know you're pregnant when you choose fast food for your birthday dinner.

-Wednesday also marked 33 weeks pregnant for me. I didn't get a chance to get a real bump picture so this is serving as my update for this week. 
I can't believe we are getting so close!! Emerson was born at exactly 38 weeks. It's crazy that we could have another sweet baby to love in 5 weeks! Eeek!!

-And speaking of baby, that's pretty much where all of my spare time has been going. I spend just about every nap time doing some kind of project for the nursery. It's coming together a little bit at a time. I feel like I still have so many things to do, including lots of monogramming and big sister/little sister shirts, but it's hard to get a lot done in 2 hours. Hopefully this weekend will be productive.

-E is still obsessed with playing dress up and begged me to play with her the other day. She said she's asking Santa for a purple dress so that she can dress up like a princess.

-She has also become quite particular about what she wears every day. She pretty much begs to wear a Christmas dress every time we leave the house. I've been appeasing her with all things red. It seems to make her happy enough. And I'm happy to report that she's almost obsessed with her new riding boots as I am. They are Stride Rite and I got them on Zulily for a steal. I am SO glad I bought them because they are ADORABLE and go with everything. In fact, I wish I could find a similar pair in my size!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We have a mini maternity shoot this weekend and plans to do some fun Christmas activities. I can't believe we are just 2.5 weeks from Christmas! It will be here before we know it!

So jealous of the warm weather and getting to play outside!

And you totally don't look pregnant straight on!

What a cutie in those boots. That pancake looked delicious. Christmas is almost here and next baby A. So excited.

San Diego is beautiful this time of year! Bennett is getting particular too...except he always wants to be in PJs and wear Cullen's shoes. It is a battle every morning!

She is so cute! Love those little boots!

Natalie said...

I love LOVE E in that red dress! And oh my gosh can't believe you are 33 weeks! Looking good!
