Then yesterday evening I got some of the best news ever! My mom called me to tell me she got her passport in the mail and she's ready to book her flight over here for September! YAY! It wasn't ten seconds after that call that I was online looking for flights. Actually I've been looking off and on for about a month now but now I can really start the search for the best deal for her! She going to come from September 8th until the 20th! YAY! Sadie will be about a month or so old by then and I really just cannot wait for her to be here. She's going to be the first one in my family to come over and it just means so much to us! That pretty much made my evening for me yesterday. Awesome!
Today I'm going to take Scooter for another long walk, weather permitting. I'm going to clean up around the house a little, measure the baby's room for Alexandra so she can start on the sketches for the mural, take a long relaxing bath and read my book. Sounds great!
Oh yesterday we did take some pictures of me pregnant at 23 weeks and 5 days along. I've been feeling a bit lumpy and frumpy about myself in all honesty. I've always had the take on it that I just look like I've packed on the pounds and not that I really look pregnant. These pictures made me think I was being a bit too hard on myself. I do indeed look a bit pregnant.
So here is a before picture of me from April of last year (I think I was about 60+ pounds down in this one). I don't have any good side shots of me at 70+ pounds down so this one will have to do. You get the idea.
And here I am yesterday sporting two of my new maternity shirts that actually aren't going to fit me much longer. Please ignore my hair, I don't know what's going on with it. It seems to have a mind of it's own. Notice a furry little family member who just can't stand not to be the center of attention!
So there you have it. I hope you all are having as wonderful of weekends as I am!
