A Visit from MiMi and a 34 Week Bump

MiMi (Travis' mom) came to visit this past weekend! Which is a big deal around these parts. Ever since Anna spent two weeks (one week just by herself) with MiMi this summer they've been two peas in a pod. They are just too cute together. While MiMi's visit was short we still had a great time celebrating all three of our birthdays, experiencing Monkey Joe's for the first time, and Anna finally getting to see the movie Frozen for the first time even though she already sings "Let it Go!" 24/7. We were definitely sad to see her go but we know the second we tell her I'm going into labor she'll be making that 7 hour trip yet again.

MiMi came bearing gifts including this 2 foot Elmo! Anna was in love.

She also brought Anna her first set of Legos (Duplos).
Anna (or should I say Daddy) couldn't wait to start building!

We had our first experience at Monkey Joe's.
Anna was in bouncy house heaven!
She's got the "get me to the next slide NOW!" look.
"Grandma makes me smile" She sure does, Anna!

Yay for 34 weeks! Huzzah for 6 weeks until the due date! Praise the Lord the back and rib pain and heartburn are almost done! And Hallelujah, at the end we get a precious baby boy to snuggle!

How far along? 34 Weeks and 3 Days

How big is baby? the size of a butternut squash and is recognizing and reacting to familiar songs. I wouldn't be surprised if he came out singing "Let it Go!" or "The Wheels on the Bus" based on how often they are sung by a little voice around here.

Total weight gain: 32 pounds

Maternity clothes? only when I'm in public trying to look nice, otherwise it's gym shorts, tshirts and tank tops

Sleep: some nights I have the best sleep and only wake up to pee, other nights it's almost like the night will never end, I'm wide awake, and usually find myself on the couch--Travis doesn't seem to mind.

Best moment this week: the whole weekend was just the best!

Miss Anything? as my friends sipped some wine Monday night I've got to say I was a little jealous. 

Movement: morning, noon, and night ;)

Food cravings: junk, junk, and anything junk  

Gender: baby boy!

Labor Signs: just the usual braxton hicks, nothing crazy this week.

Symptoms: major heartburn--it comes on even before I've eaten, braxton hicks, peeing all the time, out of breath, rib and back pain, and my favorite: baby kicks!

Belly Button in or out? out

Happy or Moody most of the time: pretty happy! 

Looking forward to: Anna and my birthday this weekend! Plus Anna's birthday party on Sunday--it's an Elmo birthday party so stay tuned for pictures!!!
