New Blog Design/Confessions of Being 6 Months Pregnant

Hi all! Welcome to our new blog design and new name. We had to change our blog name, since we are no longer just a family of 3.

Being 6 months pregnant, I am going to share some of my favorite pregnancy items this time around. I am also going to share my biggest cravings for this pregnancy (some are kind of weird!)

I just bought a Boppy total body pregnancy pillow a little over a week ago. It has changed the way I sleep! Jayden and I have both been sleeping so much better and I haven't been tossing and turning all night, which would wake Jayden up too. It was worth the money, and I can already feel a difference with my back.

I love that maxi skirts are so in style right now. They are the best during pregnancy. Stretchy and so comfy.

I started using Bio-Oil a while back (around week 12) but it got packed with our stuff when we moved. I just found it again this week and have been back to using it! I love the way it makes your skin feel. It helps minimize stretch marks and keep your skin nice and soft!

During the first trimester when I was really nauseous these granola bars were my lifesaver! I would eat one first thing in the morning and they worked like a charm to calm my stomach and help me get throug the morning. The great thing is that I never got sick of them and still eat them for a snack. 

I bought this petunia pickle bottom diaper bag right before I became pregnant. With Gavin, it has been the best for my back. I can use it as a purse or a backpack and it keeps my hand free.

I have had some usual and unusual cravings this pregnancy. My biggest craving pregnant or not pregnant is Mexican food...

 I have been craving green onions the most during the pregnancy. I eat them on everything! They make everything taste better.

 The classic pregnant woman craves pickles....and I have like crazy!

These are the perfect size to fight out a chocolate craving

I have loved bacon this pregnancy, which I normally don't like that much not pregnant!

Also, I have been loving mustard so much this pregnancy.

Family Swim/BBQ Night

Yesterday I had the idea of going to our pool and bbq'ing steaks. Our pool is a resort style pool with a built in bbq, fridge, and tables. We bought steaks to take over and grill. We had steaks, baked potatoes, zucchini, and rolls. The weather looked a little iffy when we were walking over, but it never rained, and cleared up really fast! We had the entire pool area to ourselves. It was like our own private resort, which was awesome! We ate dinner and then enjoyed swimming in the pool. Gavin is getting so good at swimming! He can hold his breath, blow bubbles, and swim with his floaties on. He is loving the water. After we came home and put Gavin to bed, we made homemade triple berry crisp al a mode. It was the perfect summer night!

Beach Playgroup

Our ward hosts a beach playgroup every Tuesday and a pool playground every Thursday. Gavin and I went to the beach playgroup today and it was a lot of fun! We meet at Jacksonville Beach and the moms and kids hang out for a few hours to swim, play, talk, and have fun. Gavin had a blast running around and playing with his new sand toys. It was a really fun morning! We are excited to go to the pool playgroup and well.
