Grammy Visits!

My mom came up to visit during her spring break! It was so much fun having her here, and I cried when she left. 
I miss living near her so much, but we are lucky to still live in the same state. 
Grammy gave Ada a fun bucket of beach toys, so we walked down to Cowells Beach to try them out.
I think Matt may have had more fun with the toys building sandcastles and what not :) 
(Ada saw the bucket on the back patio the other day and said, "Oh wooooowwww!")
We went to San Francisco one day and visited Muir Woods. It is gorgeous! We weren't prepared for how cold and wet it would be, but still had a wonderful time. 
Ada & Matt shared a first together, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge!
Going through a rainbow tunnel (?!)
Ada & Grammy getting ready to check out the redwoods
Getting her to hold still for a picture is pretty much impossible...
She just wants to RUN!
She loves climbing & exploring outside..."SIDE!" as she says :)
After Muir Woods we went to Ghirardelli Square and got hot fudge sundaes. Heaven in a spoon!
Then we went to Union Square and shopped, I got some awesome deals on maternity shirts at Old Navy. I never have luck with their jeans though, and maternity are no exception. They have a huge pooch in the crotch area that is oh-so-unflattering. I just ended up ordering another pair of the Motherhood Maternity ones I have in a longer cut since mine are high-waters. I digress!
...
We went to Los Gatos & San Jose another day. Here is Ada entertaining herself on the way to the mall. She loves seeing herself on screen & making ridiculous faces & noises. She's getting over a cold, so she had the funniest raspy voice!  
We ate at P.F. Chang's and Ada was being a little drummer girl with the chopsticks.
She even has the drummer face like her Poppa!
We had Ada's first Easter egg hunt after church and nap time. She is so worried by the eggs at first, then realizes they aren't so bad after all :) 
We miss you Grammy...thank you for coming to visit us & all of the fun!

6 Month Bump!

I've got a bouncy little eggplant in me. She's strong! I was holding Ada on my (disappearing) lap today during Relief Society and Lola kicked her in the back. Ada looked up at me like, "What the heck mom?" It made me laugh.
I feel like I have suddenly gotten HUGE! I'm so busy chasing Ada that I don't even know when my belly popped and got so big and round.
I've started having Braxton-Hicks contractions but nothing painful, just noticeable & they take my breath away. That isn't hard to do these days :)

23 Weeks

How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain: 10 lbs.
Stretch marks? Nope 
Sleep: Still sleeping well, just have a pillow between my knees and one tucked under my back. 
Best moment this month: Matt seeing my belly move, having a healthy anatomy scan, celebrating my birthday, & being told I look small for 5 3/4 months pregnant! 
Movement: All the time! She's a wiggle worm. It feels like she curls up in a ball, then jumps out like a starburst! 
Food cravings: Snickers, orange juice, chocolate anything, Dr. Pepper, Mexican & Italian food.  
Gender: GIRL! 
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In 
What I miss: Not getting winded...chasing a toddler around while pregnant makes you huff & puff!
What I am looking forward to: Ada with her little sister Lola. She loves babies :)
Monthly Wisdom: When the sun shines, get outside! We had some gorgeous days and took advantage of them at the beach and park. Now it's cold again. Hoping for more warmth & sunshine!
Milestones: Baby's face is fully formed, just packing on the adorable chub for the rest of the pregnancy.

Screen Shots

In between General Conference sessions yesterday, we took a break to check out the deck. With our Christmas tree still sitting on it. *sigh*
We laughed at Ada's smooshy screen faces
 This one kills me...she looks like a little piggy! Or the guy from Goonies haha
 We had a laughing contest

 Made funny faces
And played peek-a-boo
 BOO! 
Love our little girl with a big personality :)
