{Baby Black: Week 28}

Hello month 7 and third trimester! :)

Being in the third trimester! Seems like this pregnancy has flown by, it's really amazing. As excited as I am to meet her I hope these 12 weeks don't fly by like the last 28 have. I have lots to do, want to savor this time as a family of 3 and enjoy her in my belly a little longer!!

I had a great visit with Whit and the kids (and pups) yesterday! We could spend all day just hanging out on the couch chatting and playing with the kids. Love them.

Thankful, excited and pretty good. I am not super comfortable sleeping these day but some nights are better than others. I am driving Justin crazy with my snoring apparently. I think it's the baby snoring cause I don't snore!

Baby Black: 
She may be dreaming now and can blink her eyes and has eye lashes!! She can distinguish my voice from Justin's at this point. Her immune system is continuing to mature. Lungs are still practicing breathing amniotic fluid and billions of neurons are developing in her brain. She can taste, smell and develop tears!

What I'm wearing:
This is what SHE will be wearing - she has been spoiled lately with sweet gifts from amazing friends.
From my sweet friend  Kristin all the way from sunny California.
 I picked these up...perfect onesie when Mommy will dress her and perfect onesie when Daddy dresses her!
 My special friend Katie sent baby Black this headband and clip she made along with some adorable outfits!
 The adorable bathing suit I NEEDED and my friend Lindsey in Red Deer found and sent to me! SO excited. It's so cute.
From my boss Katie. She said if this was in adult size she could see me wearing it so had to buy it for mini me.
And last but certainly not least from Auntie Whit. So cute!
Thank you so much ladies!! Baby Black is one lucky little munchkin.

3 - whomp whomp. I have been doing longer and faster walks with Cruz lately but this week will be better!
I did do this yesterday after our walk as my back was really bugging me and I didn't feel like doing anything else and it was pretty decent. Lots of good stretches and I felt much better afterwards.
Last week:
Last night:

What I'm looking forward to:
Today we are headed to the rodeo with Mom, Dad, Jeff, Jolie and Jols parents who are here visiting from NY. AND the sun is out. Should be a fun day.

Best moment of the week:
Mom and Dad hearing her heart beat. I borrowed a little hand held Doppler from Whit (who borrowed it from a friend) and it's pretty amazing.
