my silly girl

Birdie and I have so much fun during our days together. She has such a fun little personality, and she has a really great sense of humor. When she does something funny, she always looks at me to see my reaction. When I do something silly like sing or dance to try to make her laugh, she always says, "Oh, momma!" as if she's saying, "You're so goofy!"

It's hard to tell here because she's not smiling, but she was trying to make me laugh by putting this paper on her head. Of course the second I pull out the camera, she's very serious. Still cute, though.

Bunny's shower

My amazing friends threw me a lovely baby shower this week to help welcome Bakebaby#2. We got so many cute outfits and toys and many needed baby items. Isn't this banner so adorable? It's going to hang in the nursery from now on. Birdie even had a special gift to open, so she wouldn't be left out. My friend and beautiful hostess, Randi, took the pictures for us. Thank you for such a special day, ladies!

few weekend pics

Sorry I've slowed down on my blog posts. We don't have too much longer until the baby's here, so we have been furiously painting, decorating, and organizing baby clothes to get ready. I'm starting to feel HUGE and uncomfortable, which is scary, because I still have a long way to go to feel like that already. My current prediction is that this is going to be a very big baby boy. Just a feeling.

Anyway, we had amazing weather this past weekend, so we spent as much time outside as we could. Here are a few pics of my favorite peeps.

Macaroni was hungry

We were on our way out the door to a Valentine's Day party, when Birdie pointed to Macaroni and yelled, "Eat!" Well, we couldn't let the poor thing go hungry, so we "cooked" something up in the kitchen and fed him before we left.

I want to say that this is the cutest outfit ever, but I'm worried Google is going to block me for over-usage of the word.

checking her stock portfolio

Okay, maybe I'm overly sentimental right now because of pregnancy hormones, but my little heart just melts when I see my sweet girl in this picture. I just want to smoosh her little face and cover her with kisses and make her giggle. This girl is so genuinely sweet and loving it's unbelievable. I'm so LOVING these pigtails.
Yesterday I was in the kitchen and I heard little fingertips typing. When I walked around the corner, this is what I saw.

Austin, part 3

The weather was amazing while we were in Austin, so we went to three parks/botanical gardens and ate picnic lunches and let Birdie run around looking at flowers and animals. They were lovely...and free! We tried to take several maternity shots while we had beautiful weather and scenery. Here are a few of my favorites. Didn't David do a great job?
 Birdie loves to kiss my belly, and she reminds me all the time that there's a baby in there.
One of the parks is famous for the wild peacocks running around. Their colors were beautiful. Surprisingly, Birdie was only mildly impressed.

Austin "babymoon" and anniversary weekend, part 1

Instead of celebrating Valentine's Day, we celebrate our dating anniversary every year--16 years now! So, we took a little weekend trip to Austin to celebrate and as a little "babymoon" before this baby comes. We took lots and lots of great pictures, so I'll post some more later.
