3D/4D pictures of our little pumpkin

^ Pouty face ^

^Daddy's mouth^

^'Baby taco' - love those little toes!^

My hubby's birthday was this past Saturday and I surprised him with a 3D/4D ultrasound session. We had talked about doing this and I thought it would make a perfect gift. For the first half of the session, our little guy had his arm covering his face and we couldn't see much - little stinker!! After some gentle probing from daddy, he finally moved his arm and we got to see his whole face for the first time. He's definitely got his daddy's mouth!! He opened his eyes a few times and yawned twice (so cute!). I had 2 glasses of orange juice before our appointment to make him move around but our little pumpkin was too comfy and slept almost the whole time. He's in a Frank Breech position with his arms and legs fully extended in front of his face. I sure hope he turns around over the next 7 weeks! Our package came with a CD with 47 pictures and a DVD of our whole session so we can watch it over and over. It was a great bonding experience and I'm so glad we did this. 48 days to go :)

Chubby cheeks and my big belly

We had a 3D ultrasound on August 13th and got a good, clear picture of our pumpkin's little face. His cheeks are getting chubby and he's looking so much more like an actual baby! He was sleeping and sucking on his wrist - SO CUTE!!!

Here's a picture of my big belly at 31 weeks. I'm finally starting to feel pregnant and I'm loving it! The baby is kicking and rolling around a lot and I find myself rubbing my belly all the time. It's a wonderful feeling and I feel great!

30 weeks pregnant

Here's the latest picture of our lil' pumpkin taken last month. This was the first time we got to see his little face in 3D - love that little squishy mouth and button nose. He's still bent in half with his legs and arms in front of his face, so this was the best picture we could get. Our next ultrasound is this Friday the 13th. Can't wait to see him again :)

I had a rough few weeks of severe back and hip pain. I went to physical therapy a few times and now I'm back to feeling normal. Thank goodness! I can handle a lot of pain, but I was miserable.

Garden fresh produce

I planted my garden late (June 1st) and have been waiting and waiting for some fresh produce. I went out to water the other day and lookie what I found!! I planted some different veggies this year and this picture shows two of them - purple green beans (which turn green when cooked) and a Fooled You pepper. It tastes like a jalapeno, but without the heat. I ended up stuffing it with herb cream cheese and eating it raw - it was really good! The tomato was amazing - nothing like growing it yourself and eating it right after it's picked. The zucchini and green beans were really good too. This was our dinner along with steamed Yukon gold potatoes and a mango-nectarine that I found at the grocery store. It was like a small, juicy peach with a hint of mango. Loved it! I can't wait for the rest of my garden to ripen :)
