32 Weeks Pregnant

I am 32 weeks pregnant and that means only 8 weeks left!  Its going faster now, hard to believe in just 8 weeks we will have a little baby added to our family.  I can't wait!  Number one I am all set up and ready and excited for the baby, but I am also ready to have my normal body back!

In a lot of ways this pregnancy has been different from the first one.  I think its because I am less focused on being pregnant, I don't tend to look up every stage of the pregnancy and since we are not having a baby shower and I already have everything there is less planing and more living.

I do feel the same in lots of ways to the first time around.
  • Feeling lots of kicking all day and night
  •  I have probably gained about the same amount of weight as last time
  • I feel uncomfortable when I eat too much food, its like there is no room for food in there
  • My back is killing me all the time! When I tell the Dr he says oh yeah that's what happens
  • The baby is in the right position head down and really low
New things
  • We have Emmett who is so excited about the new baby coming
  • Emmett likes to say good morning and good night to the baby belly
  • Its now hard to carry Emmett, he is just too heavy to carry for too long
  • I can't stand or walk for very long or my back starts to really kill me 
  • This time around I am anemic, so I have been really careful to take my vitamin and trying to eat more meat
  • I guess because of being anemic I was so exhausted most of the time, it was hard to not sit down after just a little activity, but I am feeling better everyday 

 32 weeks
7 months

Yesterday we enjoyed a day at LACMA.  We walked through all of the exhibits and got lunch at the cafe.  For a Friday it was pretty busy at the museum and the cafe.  The Cafe was the craziest part, we walked in and it was total chaos in there haha.  We ordered our food and finally found a place to sit outside then someone comes and tells us we have to move the tables cause we are blocking the walkway! Oh boy!  

After the cafe we saw the La Brea Tar Pits.  We didn't go on the tour, so really it was just looking at a pile of tar, but its really cool how the tar just rises out of the middle of nowhere.
We finished the day at the Peterson Museum.  I want to go back and actually tour the museum soon.  There are so many awesome cars there, we just walked through and bought the kids some cars at the gift store.

 The kids loved running through these yellow plastic noodles.

 The kids got to paint their own art.

 Here are the tar pits behind me.

 Here is the giant rock.  Not sure how or why its here, but its a huge rock LOL.
 Close, but I don't really look like I am holding it. hahaha

 When we finally walked back the the Peterson Museum Emmett yelled YAY! haha he loves cars, so we have to go back and tour the car museum.
After a fun day we ended with buying the kids cars.  Emmett picked out a yellow 57 Chevy Bel Air.  He loves it!

Lately we have been doing a lot of day trips to parks and friends houses.  It is so hot out that its hard to really be outside for too long.

Last week we went to a really cool park in Newport right on the water, we didn't stay too long because it was so hot in the sun.  Thursday night Grant and I went out on a date to dinner and drinks.  Saturday I went to my friends baby shower and on Sunday we took Grant to the airport for yet another work trip.

 Awesome park in Newport
 Ready to go out to dinner.

 At the baby shower.
 Sunday we visited my dad at the shop where they were working on the race car.

 On our way home we saw a garage sale and I scored all of these clothes for the baby for $2.50!
They are all 3 month so hopefully he will get use out of them before winter kicks in.

Laguna Beach

Saturday we spent the day at Laguna Beach playing in the water and laying on the beach.  The water is shockingly cold compared to Hawaii!  Once you get in its fine, I guess your body goes into shock and you get use to the cold.

 Grant and Emmett had fun exploring on the rocks and in the cave.

Maui Part 3

 Playing in the sand on a super windy morning.
 Swimming with the turtle in the bay.

 Emmett made friends with some kids on the beach, they all made a sand pool with the help of the dads.

 Here we are before we went out to dinner in town at Kimos.

 28 weeks pregnant

 The last 2 days we were there Grant got to surf since there was some swell.
 That little head in the middle of the pic is Grant.  I didn't get any pictures of him catching any waves.

 Our last night out to dinner to watch the sunset at Whalers Village.
 The morning we left for home.

  Every where we walked Emmett would collect flowers that had fallen off the trees and give them to me! I loved it!

We had the best trip!  Emmett and Grant loved spotting lizards and one was nick names cumus cumus (who knows why) and right before we left there was a praying mantis on the lizard's tree.

Here is our trip from 3 years ago!
