Gavin's Halloween Costume Reveal

Tonight was our wards Trunk-or-Treat. Jayden made Gavin and AMAZING costume! Gavin loves airplanes and loves Dusty the airplane from the movie Planes, so Jayden came up with this costume all from cardboard, hot glue, duct tape, and spray paint. Pretty awesome if you ask me! Gavin loved it and had a great time tonight at the ward party.

Full Term

On Friday I will be 37 weeks pregnant, which means that I am full term! It always feel good to get to the point where you know that the baby could come at anytime and be fine. I have a feeling that she might come earlier than Gavin did, but you never know (knock on wood). The last two days I have been feeling really crampy, almost like having period cramps. I remember having these with Gavin, but not until right before I went into labor. My body is getting to the point where everything is sore and uncomfortable. My hips are so sore and it feels like they are spreading trying to get ready for when she is born. A lot of times it is hard to breathe, because she is so big and up in my ribs. My doctor said with a 2nd baby lightening doesn't happen until right before labor, so it is hard to breathe up until the end. Overall, I have had a very normal and healthy pregnancy, so I can't complain too much. However, I am  so ready to meet our little girl and get my body back!

We had a doctors appointment yesterday and everything is looking good! I am 1 cm dilated (last week I wasn't at all). This week I could tell that I was dilating a little bit by the way I was feeling. I will see my doctor again next monday. I have my hospital bag packed and ready, just in case!

6 weeks pregnant vs. 37 weeks pregnant. The human body is amazing!

Video Dump

We went over to a friends apartment to play games and they have a crazy little dog that Gavin thought was hilarious!

Gavin thinks that the phrase, "oh dang!" is really funny when I say it.

Gavin tries so hard to stay awake while eating his lunch but is just too tired!

Gavin singing if you're happy and you know it at our local library's story time

Gavin saying "bless you" to me after I cough

Singing "if you're happy and you know it" the full version

If you look closely you can see Lily moving around like crazy. I wish the video picked it up better.

Alyx and Spencer Come to Visit

Our good friends Alyx and Spencer came to visit us in Jacksonville this past weekend. It was Spencer's fall break so they decided to come visit for a few days. We love having visitors! It was so much fun seeing them. We tried to fit a lot in for the short amount of time that they were here. 

Alyx is pregnant as well so we had to take a belly shot. Alyx is 22 weeks pregnant and I am 36 weeks pregnant in this picture. 

We went to the Jacksonville Zoo on Friday while Jayden was at work. 

Here is a video of Gavin laughing at the monkeys at the zoo:

Friday night we went to the pool at our complex and bbq'ed steaks. 

Saturday we went to the beach:

Saturday night we went to St. Johns Town Center and had a delicious dinner at Cantina Laredo. Then we drove downtown to walk around and see the city. 

I was able to bring my tripod to take some night shots of the city

 We walked the Jacksonville Pier 

Thanks Alyx and Spencer. We had a great time!
