31 weeks

The countdown is on! I can't believe that I am just weeks away from meeting our little girl. The little girl that has been stirring and growing inside of me for 8 months. I have overwhelming feelings of joy and happiness! To hold her for the first time and to have her lock her eyes with mine is a dream. I can't wait to see Bo hold our daughter and to see the two most important things in my life together and as a family. He is going to be an amazing and supportive father. I am truly blessed.

When I went to the Doctor last week for my 29week check up it was a pleasant surprise...I am measuring a week ahead of schedule. So 31 weeks is where I am and I could not be happier! To anyone that has been pregnant before you will understand that statement. This last stretch has been....well, uncomfortable. I am lucky to have such an uncomplicated pregnancy besides the usual aches and pains that you feel towards the end. Bo laughs at me because it takes me so long to get anywhere and getting up from a sitting position can be a challenge and most of the time requires assistance after a long day. I love him for being so patient with me and for being an amazing supportive and empathetic husband when I'm not feeling so great. The daily back rubs and feet rubs are much MUCH appreciated.

Ava Grace is quite the gymnast! As each week passes she becomes amazingly strong and active. I feel like there is a party going on in my belly! There have been a couple of times where it felt like she just might kick her way out...I just think to myself that she is just as anxious to me us!

My good friend Anne-Camille took our maternity pictures over the weekend and we had the best time! She is an amazing photographer and I was honored to have such talent make memories for us! She gave us a sneak peak on her website and I am anxious to see all of the photos she took! You can see her work and a sneak peak of our photos at Photos by Anne-Camille.

Also over the weekend my sister Suzy got married to an amazing man. They are now Mr. and Mrs. Dustin Smith! It was a perfect day and my sister looked so beautiful and incredibly happy! They are on their honeymoon at Disneyworld for an entire fun! I will post pictures
of the wedding when I get them! Next weekend is my first baby shower hosted by my mom and sisters in Rogers, AR! I am so excited to see all of my family and friends! I won't be the only expecting mom there...2 of my good friends are expecting as well as my sister Kelly. I just LOVE being pregnant with others!
