EASTER and a Baby Cakes Update

Today was the perfect spring day to celebrate Easter. We enjoyed a nice dinner followed by a fire and Smores with the Hammond side. It was a lovely evening spent laughing and enjoying one another's company. The boys played some basketball while the ladies chatted away and it was so nice to finally be able to sit outside in the sunshine.

The Boys

My mom asked my brothers to please look nice today for church since it was Easter (sometimes they tend to roll out of bed and go). Braden thought he'd "look nice" by trying out this new hair-do. He was told he looked like Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio. This did absolutely nothing good to his already large ego.
Little Baby Cakes is doing well and growing larger and larger. Today I am 28 weeks (7 months) and I feel like I have no more room inside of me for this little guy to grow. I've been told its going to be a rough 3 months ;0)
I'm pretty sure I'm one of the worst pregnant women EVER! Poor Daniel....
If I'm not complaining about my swollen feet, my back and tail bone hurting, the little guys limbs kicking my rib cage, or heartburn, then I'm probably asleep. All complaining aside, I really have been very blessed and lucky to have such a healthy pregnancy. We are getting more and more anxious to meet this little guy and are hoping that the next 12 weeks go by fast. I have loved being able to feel him move around all day long. Even if I think he's bruising me internally. Time seems to be flying by and before we know it, it'll be July and we will no longer be a family of 2. I'll leave you all with these totally awesome photos. Here is our best attempt at a "maternity photo shoot". Don't mind the creeper husband...

i just love having a group of GOOD girlfriends. i think its a necessity. it doesn't matter if we haven't seen each other for months. once we are all together again- we pick right back up where we left off. for this months GNO, we went to grab a bite and catch up on everyones lives.

there are 7 of us who are pregnant and due with in 3 months of each other. its nice to be able to complain and have six others who totally know where you are coming from!

Shonie: 8.5 months, Kathy: 7.5 months, Me: 6.5 months, Ali: 4 months, Linds: 3.5 months

i love every single one of you!

i just got back from a seven day trip to Kirksville Missouri. what was i doing there you ask?
only visiting some of my most favorite people EVER!

dannys sister, Aimee, had twins 8 weeks ago and so i flew out there to try and offer a little relief to the new family of 6. it was the perfect week spent lounging around in pj's, lunches at the park, and of course... holding babies.

i was seriously impressed with how well Aimee has adjusted to going from 2 kids to 4. she is super woman and i can only hope i'll handle my single little guy as well as she juggles her 4.

traveling when you're 6 1/2 months preggo is not fun and i don't recommend it! however, if you have wonderful family to visit it makes it all worth it when you get there!

welcome to the world Norah and Crosby!
