third trimester

i really love being pregnant. 
i feel like this time around has been easier on my body, even though i have a teetering exploring toddler to chase after.

 32 weeks pregnant with leica

 my tired little conductor


 leica, dustin, g-ma cheryl

 all fancied up for cody's wine country wedding

kendall, nick, dustin, 
g-ma cheryl, and gg-ma carol at apizza scholl's...
 salad, delish pizza and a melt down!

 portland zoo

 with uncle icky on the tractor at the farm section of the zoo

 kissing the polar bears

 swinging like a monkey in the trees

zonked! so tired. what a fun time.

27 weeks (8/11)

here i am, 27 weeks.
this was taken on august 11...i'm playing catch-up with my posts, obviously.

our fall garden

dustin has devised an elaborate plan for our backyard garden area. it will be completely fenced in(to keep dogs out!) and partially lined with limestone(for erosion) and leica loves helping dad out.


i went back to work...for a week. (7/28)

mom came to austin to help us out and watch leica while i filled in  at the salon for a week. what a different life that is!
of course, i got zero pictures of leica and barbie. ugh!

 leica loving on babe #2!

 the many,


 heartfelt faces of

 leica singing. 

 willie revisited...one year later.

 25 weeks!

  just a cute picture. right before i was able to take this, leica was walking around with this scarf in his butt crack. my mom and i were laughing and how cute/funny it was and i think leica got embarrassed.
