Belly Shots Update

The first is at 22 weeks. The second is with AJ at around 16-19 weeks and the last one is with Kohen wearing the same shirt and color pants as with AJ except at 23 weeks with Kohen. I am feeling like this kid is going to stretch me like I never thought possible 😦 I am not sure why these are not loading nicely and even but oh well. I feel certain Kohen is going to be bigger than Ava because I don’t remember being this big at the same time with Ava. I will have to head up to our desktop to look. Either way there isn’t much I can do about it except eat healthy. But there lies the problem as a teacher we get tons of junk and yummy goodies all the time. With a sweet tooth like mine its hard to pass them up. Okay so the pics below are mixed up the one with my shirt down is now with Kohen and the one where I was brave enough to lift it is with Ava around 4 months or so with Ava. I think we were making Christmas cards at the time.

It can be done… Right?!

I am 3 weeks away from graduation! WOOHOO!!!
Now the hard part, I have a teacher work sample due today that I probably won’t get done in time. I have a research paper due in 2 weeks that I have yet to get approval on from my professor. I have my student teaching portfolio due in 2 weeks and have misplaced my flash drive. I can not take any time off of work due to my school being re-accredited and parent teacher conferences. I have a bad cold that is kicking my butt at the moment. I have my dumb gestational diabetes test next Monday. The upside??
I only have to make it for 3 more weeks and then I can relax for a while until I have Kohen and life gets crazy again. Forgive me if I am MIA for a while. Prayers gladly accepted and positive perspectives appreciated!!

Halloween and Pumpkin Painting

We had a great night! I swear Ava amazes me more and more everyday. It’s nights like Halloween when she makes me fall in love even more than I ever thought possible. We practiced the night before and she fell asleep asking me if when she said trick or treat the kids would put candy in her bag. Once I got home from work I got her ready for dinner at my parents house and then off we went. She ate a lot of her food just because we kept telling her that until she ate we couldn’t go. My Dad gave her some candy before we headed out and once we got to the neighborhood to trick-or-treat she was so excited. At the first house she said trick or treat and went to take her candy out of the bag to give to the lady. Once she finally understood that she was getting candy she told us “I get candy for us”. She was so good and said thank you and happy Halloween to everybody. Some costumes and houses scared her but all in all she loved it. The wonder in her eyes and joy over the small things is the best part of being her Mom. On with the pics…
