32 weeks

Baby girl is moving right along!!
We are in the 3rd trimester and about 7 weeks till we're due!
We had our 32 week appointment yesterday and everything looks to be going good.
Blood pressure is where it is supposed to be, she is measuring right on schedule. We're looking to possibly induce around 39 weeks- the week school starts. It would be wonderful to be able to do this to "know" our schedule. I've been very blessed to be able to keep active this pregnancy and try and continue to exercise. We will just see if this makes a difference! I can feel her move a lot- especially on my two sides. We'll find out July 24 about where she is positional and if i've started to dilate.   I've had a few migraines this month. But trying not to stress has helped them be short lived. I have heart burn- same with the boys- I get out of breath and have a small belly for eating- which i never had with the boys. She must be higher? Smaller more frequent meals have helped!

27 weeks
Hiking at devils den. It was hot but really fun to be active with my boys!

29 weeks
We went to disney! It was a lot of fun. We jam packed our week. We were very busy! only once did I feel faint and too hot. Eating Ice helped a lot. very thankful for tennis shoes and sports clothes. And for Tyler. He was amazing. I truly believe I would not have been able to do this trip without him. He's amazing! (disney post to come!)

 31 weeks
I've started to swell by the end of the day. This day^ I wore those shoes to church and they fit fine before-  by the end of the couple hours there, my feet were very swollen and i could barely stuff them back in. Water with Lemon is my GO TO. Probably safe to say the thing I've been craving the most.

I feel overwhelmed with all I want to accomplish before baby girl gets here. But Also incredibly blessed by how this pregnancy has gone. The Nesting feeling is no joke- feels very strongly about certain things. I'm excited for her to hurry up and get here, but also praying that we'll use the time well between now and then. We're only a fam of 4 for a few more weeks!

Gray's last day of school

Gray has finished is first year of tender care! We sure do love this school. Gray had Miss Cindy. She was just the most sweet and patient teacher!  He has grown so much. His vocabulary and sentence speaking has really blossomed. His little report card from his teacher mentioned him being a great sharer and a great friend. He's a good obeyer and a good listener. He is very creative. He uses his imagine and loves to come up with stories and games on his own. His latest game he likes is "Guessy guessy guess guess" which is sharades. 
The friends we heard the most about were JJ, Watson, and Lyla. His whole class was very sweet. 

We're trying to figure out a new routine with him being out of school. 

23 weeks

I am officially 23 weeks with this little girl!! She is very calm. Doesn't move near as much as I remember the boys moving. I know I am way more active this pregnancy.  At 21 weeks we had our half way anatomy scan ultrasound. It was fun because we were able to take both boys with us to see her. We find out in a couple days how everything looked but to our eyes she looks great :) It was a fun thing for me to see when they looked at her nose and mouth how much she looked like Roman did in the ultrasound. 

I am feeling really great. I am able to keep up with my exercise more then i thought i would be able to. I've had two strangers comment about me expecting so that means I officially look like a pregnant mama. I love it.  My migraines have been manageable. Last week I had three and it was discouraging, but the medicine I have has helped. I've been researching and I'm wondering if I need to be better about eating more regularly. Pregnancy makes the metabolism sky rocket, and a potential migraine trigger is low blood sugar. I makes sense that not eating regularly may trigger one. It's all a guessing game but i'm trying to do better about it. 

Rome and Gray are having fun with our growing little sister. 

Here she is from our 20 weeks! We got to see her actually kick- the boys called her ninja baby :)

                                                            Here are a few belly pics.

Baby #3!!!

We are excited to share we are pregnant with our 3rd baby!!! We found out recently that it is a girl!!

I found out a couple weeks before christmas that we were expecting. I wasn't feeling well and went to the Dr with suspected Strep. I waited for the strep test results- the dr came in and said, "Sorry to say you have strep, but excitingly you are also pregnant!'' It was a fun surprise to have!

We've slowly shared the news with family and then our boys after the first Dr Appointment.  Very fun to have the boys so excited

Tyler and I found out that the baby was a girl and did a little fun surprise to show the boys.

We took the boys with us to the latest ultrasound. It was fun to have them a part of it.

Needless to say we are very excited! Both boys are happy to be big brothers- Gray said "I will be the best big brother to this sister. Very sweet to have him and his joy!

Isn't that a neat shot? its the placenta in the background. God is so amazing how he made the wonder of pregnancy!

This pregnancy has been very different. I've had rashes and acne- two things i've never really dealt with before. I felt terribly nauseous for the first 14 weeks.  I've been able to continue with a bootcamp exercise class i've been taking. I'm starting to slow up now :) My struggle has always been with the hard part of a changing and growing body. My challenge is to find healing from eating disorder mentality on a whole new level this pregnancy. I want to keep the joy that Satan is quick try and steal from me. Especially in these fast moments- like pregnancy. I will not be able to be pregnant with this girl ever again. It's not worth the stress.  Jesus is meeting me in my weakness and making me stronger.

At State Wrestling little thing is showing! I was about 13 weeks.

I need to take another pic! i'm 17 weeks today!

Baseball 2016

This was romans 2nd year of Tball. He was on the Cardinals and had GREAT coaches. Daddy, Brody's Dad, Stephen, and Dustin Butler. It was fun being on a team that was all about encouraging and having a fun time!  They were pretty good! By the end of the season they knew a bit more of the strategy with baseball. Roman's fave part of ball was getting to practice at home with Daddy. Quality Time love language?

Grayson enjoyed the ball games- more time to play on the PARK! He does well playing solo- the first game i couldn't find him-- only to see him running onto the field!! GRAY! :) He had one fall that was a big one-- from the bleachers to the slab of concrete under. His bump was ugly. I was pretty concerned. I woke him a few times during the night to make sure he was doing alright- each time he responded-- "Snack time, mommy??" Love that boy. 

We got to know a few other families through this experience. It's fun seeing who all will be growing up with Roman.

During Tball season we've been able to go to two naturals games! One with Valerie, Caleb, and Caitlyn Braschelor. We went for an afternoon game. Two was with Stephen and Laura's family. We even got to stay for the fireworks :)
