We signed our girls up for a summer gymnastics session and so far they have both loved it. Avery has taken classes before, but this was Sophie's first time trying it out!

Avery has gotten so good. She definitely likes gymnastics better than she liked dance.

Cousin Quinlan got to try out gymnastics for the first time while visiting.

 They are ready to head to gymnastics...just drawing while they wait...

It was so fun to watch the cousins take a gymnastics class together!

35 Weeks!

Baby BOY is now the size of a large cantaloupe, 19 inches and 5.5 pounds. 

I'm sure you're all thinking, I look more like I have a large watermelon inside my belly! I have had so many people comment about how big I am and say, "Wow, you must be having a HUGE baby". Well, I was given much peace after I had an ultrasound on Friday and found out baby boy is 5 pounds 3 ounces and will probably weigh around 7 pounds when he is born. I'm very thankful to know this! Can any of you women agree that people say some of the weirdest (and not very kind) things to you when you're expecting. To be honest, I often wonder what other women are thinking! I'm definitely to the point where I can't wait for the attention to be shifted to my precious baby. I don't like the fact that I can't go anywhere without someone commenting on my size, etc.  Do any of you feel the same when you're pregnant? 

Sorry, I needed to vent a little! I do believe pregnancy is a beautiful gift and miracle, I just wish people would think through their comments before speaking! :)

Girl time and laundry room...

With this many girls all together...a nail painting afternoon was a must! My sweet sister even gave me a mini pedicure since I can barely reach my toes!

More water table fun...

On a different day we took a trip to Homegoods! My sister and I both LOVE that place, so we figured it was a must for us to go there together while she was visiting. She was on a mission to help me re-do my laundry room. Well, after almost 2 hours in that store (our girls were troopers) we came home with the perfect items to change up my laundry room!  I'm so beyond thankful for the her ideas and for blessing me with such a cute, yet functional laundry room. I still need to add to it a bit, but look how amazing it is now!

Headed into Homegoods...



So much better, right?  
My sister is amazing!

I got some great snuggles in with Maeve the night my sister went up to Denver to see some friends!

Focus on the Family and more cousins!

We took my sister and her girls to play at Focus on the Family while they were here. It's one of our favorite places to frequent, especially on cold wintery days or HOT summer days. I'm getting to the point in my pregnancy where I definitely prefer AC! 
The girls of course had a blast together!

I love this sweet Maeve!

Sophie loved "taking care" of Maeve. She was constantly bringing her the things she needed like her paci or dolly. Here she is feeding her cheerios!  I can't wait to see how she "takes care" of her little brother!

My sister Jenny and her boys stopped by in the afternoon on their way from Durango to Denver. It was great to spend time with them and add even more cousins to the bunch. For an afternoon, it felt like we all lived close to one another! Wish we all did!
