Houston Trip!

Lindsay, Ada & I flew out to Houston last weekend for our cousin's wedding!
Matthew married KayLa Williams, and they are such a cute couple. The sealing was lovely & the Houston Temple is beautiful! 
I loved that the sealer told them to put 100% of themselves in. A marriage is not 50/50. It's 100/100! And also to always focus on the other person more than yourself. Wonderful advice!
After exiting the Temple & after cutting the cake at the reception
Uncle Dana finally winning Ada over with cupcakes. I love this picture so much!
She can be won easily with food :) 
Ada loved dancing at the reception!
I think she really thought she was line dancing.
Between the Sealing & Reception, Ada didn't get a nap in. 
She crashed on the car ride back to the hotel, stayed asleep in my arms up to the room, while I undressed her, and fell back on the bed like this. We were cracking up! 
Long, fun day for a baby girl!

We stayed with my dad & Pam the other days. 
On our way to some delicious Texas BBQ one night, Ada busted out with the best voice ever.
It was SO hot & humid, so I thought it would be good to go to the Children's Museum one day.
It was gloriously air conditioned!
Ada absolutely loved it! Nannie & her had a blast playing together. 

Best idea I've ever had :) This is her on the ride back home.
Ada wasn't so sure about Captain Walt's trombone...

She was so excited to see her Papa again after almost a week apart!

8 1/2 Months Pregnant

How far along? 34 weeks
Total weight gain: 35 lbs! 
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Is interrupted by 1-2 potty breaks a night. Surrounded by lots of pillows and nothing on top of me...I'm an Easy Bake Oven.   
Best moment this week: Being in the Houston Temple for my cousin's Sealing to his sweet new wife. Lola was bouncing around like crazy during it and it was such a special moment.  
Movement: Is strong & constant! She's doing exactly what Ada did and pushing on my ribs on the right side with her feet. I am so sore by the end of the day! It's a crazy feeling to be punched and kicked from the inside. I do love that she moves so much though, because it gives me piece of mind knowing that she is healthy and strong.  
Food cravings: I've been eating a ton of watermelon. No serious cravings so far, just hungry all the time!, period.   
Gender: Girl!
Labor Signs: Just Braxton Hicks contractions.  
Belly Button in or out? In still I think? Stretched out and silly is what it is.  
What I miss: Running.   
What I am looking forward to: Having an ultrasound in 2 1/2 weeks! 
Weekly Wisdom: Heat + flying + 8 mos. pregnant = cankles the size of Texas!  
Milestones: 20 days until she is considered full term, and 41 days until my due date!

Sunday Pictures

Last Sunday, I wanted to take some pictures before we all kicked off our church shoes and took a nap. 
We usually do that pretty quickly after we get home :)
Ada giving me a flower
 I don't know where it went!
 Sweet little lips
 Little helper giving me the lens cap
 Papa & Ada 
 Pure joy! 
 Happy with the same face :) 
 Mommy & her girl

The other morning, I was in the kitchen while Ada was in the living room. I could hear her saying, "Ni-ni!" but it was too early for her nap. I snuck over to see what she was doing and this is what I found:
She was putting her dolls to bed. Pulled down the cushion and blanket to make a bed for one, I don't know why the other one has to sleep face down on the tile!
I love the sweet kisses she gives. Can't wait to see her with her little sister!
