Our bags are packed and ready to go. Your carseat is in the car, straped in and ready to go. Daddys guy trip is over and he is home. Momi has not slept in 2 nights because of horrible back pain.
We are all ready for you Miss. MRW
I know you will come when you're ready but please speed the process up a little and dont make us wait to much longer to hug and kiss you!
Harley cant wait to meet you either! She keeps trying to snuggle on my tummy-but she doesnt know what to think when you kick her...

So at my last Doc. apt he said your job for this week is to do some serious contracting... HMMM... I must have missed reading how to do that in all those pregnancy books.
Since I cant really physically do anything to help those along I have been talking to this little GIRL telling her she already has a to-do list and really needs to get started on it.
Cross my fingers that something will have progressed by next Tuesday.

Although he hasn’t been able to get out into the wood and really break it in he has been climbing trees in our neighborhood everyday.
Ryan and I went to see The Hangover on Saturday night. I have to say I was surprised by how much I really like this show. I still have a few scenes stuck in my head that just crack me up anytime I think about it.
On Sunday we took a trip to the ZOO. It was so much fun to see all the animals. Addi was big enough to get really excited about all the different things she saw so it made it that much better!
Ryan got a little tiered throughout the day and kept finding ways to rest a bit. First he would 'ride' down any and every hill. Then he attached the waggon to his belt loop to pull it up the hills.
Happy Fathers Day!
This bench has been in my family for years and years... It’s been beat up and thrown around- I decided she needed to have it in her room so here it is... I sanded it down and repainted it myself!
This picture doesn’t do justice to how amazing this doll house/book shelf is that Ryan built. It turned out better than I imagined and it’s exactly what I wanted.
I can’t wait until our little GIRL gets to play with it.

I can’t tell you how awesome the last 2 weeks have been feeling her. Its totally different than it was a month ago. I can feel her little foot or hand stick out. I can grab it and feel how tiny it is. She even tickles me. It’s the weirdest thing. It’s like someone is doing that motion 'tickle tickle' like you do with little kids and move your fingers. (It’s hard to explain)
I don’t think I have dropped at all yet. I still feel her bum way up in the right side of my ribs. Same place its been for the last 8 months. My doctor said she is head down right now and prob. won’t be moving the other way so HOORAY! Hope she stays that way and I can have a regular delivery- Hope she isn’t like me and decides to come out butt first :)
Well yesterday this awesome group of people surprised me with a BABY SHOWER! I had NO idea anything was even being planned. I walked into the room full of great friends who all showered me with love and support- along with great food and great gifts.
Some of the things I was spoiled with...

our DBOY is growing up so fast. June 16 he turned the big # 6!!! he came last week for a long visit that was much needed. since I got pregnant i have to say our visits are not what they used to be so when he comes and has a long visit we fill it up with as much as we can do. since his birthday was the last day he was with us we had a mini party just for Devlin. He was so excited to pick out all the treats he wanted and that it was a day just for him. he wanted a rice crispy cake, ice cream cones with sprinkles and strawberry syrup and fudge popsicles. i think his favorite part was the rice crispy cake. he couldnt stop talking about that. when he blew out the candles he got so shy and wouldnt look at anyone. after he came to me and said
"i was embarrassed to blow out my candles, i havent done that in like a year!"
ahh... this kid seriously cracks me up!
* We both learned a few things- I was more surprised by some things than Ryan was even though I have read the books already.
* I thought at one point, Hmm... Do I really want to do this? Is it to late to turn back?
* Got a little scared learning what is going to really be happening with my body
(Seriously- the stork doesn't drop her off at the end of 9 months?)
* Ryan only fell asleep once! hehe... (It was during one of the birthing videos)
* The only thing that really kept me from getting up and running out in tears a few times was Ryan grabbing my hand and knowing he will be there with me.
* The other thing that kept me from running out of there in tears was when we went by the nursery. Seeing those little babies made me realize I will be getting a little tiny, amazing present when this is all over and she is going to be totally worth it.

Wow the time is seriously going by fast.
The anxiety is still going crazy but its now- sooo excited and so ready to the next minute being so scared and sooo not ready :)
Guess that happens with being a first time Mom.
The belly is growing and so is Baby GIRL. She is moving A LOT. She has even tickled me. It was the weirdest/coolest feeling.
I am still not sleeping to great but I think I'm just getting prepared for the sleepless nights to come. My energy is hit and miss. Some days ill be ready to run a marathon and others I can barely walk to the kitchen.
Cooking has been my greatest weakness- I was fine to cook and even got my baking on for a few weeks but in the last week or so- I don't feel up to doing any of that. Good thing I have an awesome husband who actually likes to cook and does an awesome job at it!
Her name is pretty much final now but we are still not releasing it just in case.
We have a doctor apt tomorrow and it will be the last apt. before we start going every 2 weeks.
Her room is almost finished. Ryan has neglected to bring his drill home from work for a few weeks now and I just need to get her shelf hung up. He is starting on making her doll/book shelf this week. I cant wait for it all to be done!
Here is the belly at 32 weeks.
I'm so glad our pool has opened because I have been dieing to go swimming!
For those Moms out there or those who are pregnant can you relate to me when I say advice sometimes is really just UNWANTED? What I mean is those people who come to you with off the wall comments that almost make you well- punch them in the face? Okay that's a little pregnancy craziness coming through but man! I can only hear so many times how I HAVE to raise my baby a certain way and how I HAVE to do this or that a certain way. Now to all those reading this blog- I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to those who don't know anything about my life, family or lifestyle. Its funny how they know me just because I have a watermelon belly- these are those same people that come up and CARESS my belly. Not touch it but pretty much jump on top of me and mall my belly :)
Harley loved her sticks and even found a few furry friends to play with...
Our last cabin picture with this belly and just the 2 of us!
Some of our highlights:
** Boys will be Boys. Shawn and Ryan found any opportunity they could to shot their bows. This is the "WT" tree stand :)
** We took a drive to this place with a cool cave.
No one dared to go down into it.
** Addi kept us entertained the whole time. This girl has such an adorable personality. This is her "HULK" impression!
Harley loved her- Maybe a little to much at times.
** Just like last year or anytime we go camping Harley found her fair share of sticks and rocks to chew on.
** There are a few dead trees very close to the cabin- to avoid anything falling and crushing the cabin the boys stay on top of cutting them down and chopping it into fire wood. Now cutting down trees are more of a sport for these boys. Trying to impress each other to cut it down the fastest and this year- they had a target to try and hit!
As the trees were falling they were trying to smash the good ol' travel haul~
