My boy is growing! I can tell because:

A. My clothing selection of what currently fits me is more and more limited.
B. My belly is starting to get in the way.
C. And I am getting a few karate kicks to the belly every day, which I don't mind. It lets me know that he is doing well and getting stronger! Just what we like. 

We love our little buddy. 
Somedays I just want him here already, in my arms, born and out of my belly.
Other days, I am glad he is still in there growing big and giving his daddy and me a little more time with just the two of us. 

I don't know if I have ever been this happy.
Or this in love with my husband.
While we are excited for him to be here, we are enjoying just being us for a little longer.
I know our world is going to change a whole lot come July.
And we are ready (mostly-- still need to buy a few things like a crib and car seat and all that jazz)!
So we are taking each day at a time, eating dinner together, going on walks around the neighborhood, reading The Hunger Games each night and trying to catch a few zzzz's when we can (since we know THAT will be one of the major changes).

Here I am at 25 weeks. 
15 weeks to go!

And a BIG thank you to my fabulous photographer-- Mr. T. Perkes. You are the best, Tys!

catching up.

Here are a few things that have been happening in our lives lately.
Each event deserves and WILL receive its own post, of course!

First up--

We finally moved into our new place! We are loving it and finally feel like we are getting settled.
Only a few more boxes left to unpack! Hooray! Next up, decorating.

Tys building stuff.


We went to our favorite place (a.k.a. Hawaii) for a little getaway before baby comes! We had the best hosts (G & G Egbert), spent many hours on the beach and ate delicious food including a shave ice nearly every day.

Third of all--

While we were in Hawaii we celebrated our second anniversary! A part of me can't believe it's been two years already... but another part of me can't believe it's only been two years! I can barely remember what life was like without Tyson. We spent the perfect day together in Hawaii to celebrate and we loved it.


Baby is growing and is healthy as can be! I had another doctor's appointment today and it's always music to my ears to hear that little heartbeat. Baby boy has started moving around and it is the COOLEST feeling ever. When I lay down at night he starts doing some flipping and flopping. The other night I was thinking,"There is is an actual human in there!" It still seems surreal. 

We still have lots lots lots to do before baby comes, but I just want it to be July already.
