Week 16

My sweet Avocado!

We LOVE avocados so much! I like to just eat them plain they are so yummy! I can’t believe how big you are getting it feels like just yesterday you were a poppy seed. This week had been pretty eventful. Work had been crazy and there are days I just wish I was already on maternity leave. :)

This week our wonderful friends Ryan & Alissa found out they are going to have a sweet little BOY!! Alissa is one of my best friends and we have been blessed to share this fun pregnancy together. She is due September 7th only 4 weeks before me. I cherish my friendship with them and look forward to this new addition to their family. We have been dreaming about the two of you growing up together and being great friends someday. Or maybe getting married, I can tell you that you would have awesome in-laws. :)

We also attended your Aunt Sarah’s baby shower for your cousin that is due in a few weeks. It was nice to see your grandma Brook and all your daddy’s Aunts. I can tell you that they can’t wait to meet you. Im excited for you to have these two sweet boys to play with. Your Aunt was telling me that Jason is already over 8 pounds and she is not due for 4 weeks. Please don’t get that big! Speaking of big I am really starting to show and people are noticing so that has been fun.

Keep growing in there sweetie, I can’t wait to hear your heartbeat at our doctors appointment in a few days. Love you so very much!

Week 15

My big Apple!

This week I have been sick, it is not fun. I came home from New Mexico with this awful cough and stuffy nose. It just does not want to go away. It is so sweet to see your dad worried about how this cold might be affecting you, his is such a wonderful dad! Let me tell you a little secret he is so excited about you that he almost cries thinking about you daily. I love that about him and he loves that I cry about everything.

This week I went to Disneyland with my friend Brittany and we had so much fun. We just walked around and went on a few little kid rides. I am so excited to take you there one day. Actually you will probably go there a million times before you can walk. Britt and I snacked a lot while we are there. It is fun going places with her because she likes to stop and get yummy snacks like a pickle, rootbeer float and other delicious snacks with me.

We have another doctors appointment coming up in a few weeks and Im really excitend to see how you are growing. Actually your dad and I have been taking trips to Babies R Us and Target just to walk thru the baby stuff and dream about you. You are really really loved!

Week 14

My cute Lemon!

This week you went on your first mission trip to New Mexico! We took almost 200 high school students to Shiprock, New Mexico. We spend spring break on a Navajo Indian Reservation and it is so much fun. We load all of the kids and leaders up on a 4 buses in the middle of the night and start our 16 hour bus ride. I made sure to sit close to the bathroom so I would not have to hop around everyone to get to my frequent visits. The bus ride there was great, it seemed to go by quickly. At our lunch stop Bekah, our great friend, and I snuck away to grab lunch at Cracker Barrell…it was delicious! You really liked it, I could tell, we will visit one when you are older.

While we were in Shiprock our village of students helped out at the church we actually stayed at last year when we were there. We re-painted the outside of the guest house, did some roofing, painted the baptismal room, cleaned everywhere, laid some carpet, and did some other miscellaneous work. Let me say that you and I did not do too much just to be safe I did not want to be around a lot of the paint chemicals and mold. So we were big cheerleaders and help get supplies that were needed, oh and also made sure everyone was drinking plenty of water.

One of the days we put on a local carnival for the people of Shiprock. It was so much fun to see all the kids playing games and dream of you being there one day. I can’t wait until we take you on a trip with us for the first time. I’m sure you are going to have such a huge heart for others and I look forward to seeing you serve.

Love love love you!

Week 13

My little Plum!

This week was Easter so it was nice to celebrate Christ’s resurrection and what that means to us. I can’t wait to share the story with you and see you hunt for Easter eggs. Actually I am really excited to see you in your cute little Easter outfit, you will look SO cute!

We went out to Chino Hills to have dinner with your dad’s family since your Aunt Mel & Uncle Adam are moving to Oklahoma this week. We are sad that they are leaving but really excited to see what God does in their marriage & ministry in the coming year.

Your grandma, grandpa, Aunt Emily & great-grandma came to Easter service with us at Saddleback. We had a huge celebration for our 30th anniversary and services were held at Angel Stadium, it was so much fun. When we got home from lunch with the family we had a really long earthquake. I’m sure you did not feel anything but it was one of the longest ones we have ever had.

Love you!
Your Mother
