Week 26

My English Cucumber!

Hallee you now weigh about a pound & two-thirds & measure 14 inches long from head to heel. That is the length of an English hothouse cucumber, I don't know what that is either. I enjoy eating regular cucumbers so hopefully they are just as delicious.

This week your dad & I were able to get away on a little vacation to Palm Springs. We went with a group of friends from student ministries. It is an annual trip they take us on to get away & relax & reconnect before the busy summer starts. I have to say it was really really hot but still extremely enjoyable. We spent most of our time at the pool, you & I just floated around on a raft to stay cool. I think you enjoyed the pool because you were moving around like crazy whenever my belly was in the water. We went & got pedicures (your dad got one too), ate a lot of delicious food & one night we went to the movies. We saw Toy Story 3 and it was really cute, I can't wait to let you watch all 3 of them, they are my favorite Pixar movies. All in all this trip was so much fun for you dad & I to reconnect, relax & come home refreshed. I'm excited that next year you will be there with us!

Little girl you have been moving SO much the last few weeks. I just love feeling you kick around, except when you decide to use my bladder as a trampoline :) Your daddy & I can just sit & watch my belly for hours. I think you already enjoy praying because you kick your dad's hand every night when we are praying. You are such a good baby already we are just so anxious to hold you in our arms. Love you so much sweetie!!

Your mommy


  1. I can't even believe you are already at week 26!! It goes by so fast so keep enjoying every minute of it!! You look so adorable with your little belly:)

  2. :) this uncle is getting pretty anxious to meet his first niece. i may not be as cool as uncle jessie, but i was always more of a fan of uncle joey and his witty humor anyways (making full house references feels so much more relevant with your relation to, and mike's obsession with, john stamos)
