35 weeks {babybrink#2}

Real life with a blur of a nakey toddler running around ;)
Size of baby: honeydew melon. And boy does it feel like there's a melon in there, ha ha! It's getting hard to maneuver around him!

Movement: night time is still party time for our little man! I really hope that changes when he's born, ha ha! He also really loves to hang out in my right side. And I mean alllll the way over in my right side. I don't know how he reaches that far over, ha ha!

Cravings: peaches! Oh man, peaches are totally hitting the spot!

Miss anything: I'm a little embarrassed by how vain I always am with this part... I having skinny toes and shapely legs ;) The swelling actually hasn't been as bad this pregnancy, I definitely couldn't wear my wedding ring by this point with Mia, but it's definitely becoming more and more prominent as the days go by!

Random: my brother and sister in law had their precious baby girl over the weekend and I'm SO excited to be an aunt for the first time on the Crowley side! I was showing Mia pictures of her new baby cousin and I explained to her that she would soon be seeing pictures of mom and dad holding a new baby. I tried to explain that brother would come out of my belly as well and we would have a new baby to hold. She got SO excited to hold baby brother and it ended up being the sweetest conversation! I know we will have our adjustment trials, but I just can't wait to see Mia be a big sister to her new baby brother. I have no doubt that it's going to be the SWEETEST thing I've ever seen!

Best moment of the week: going to the doctor and hearing the beautiful sound of his heartbeat! It's my (and Mia's) favorite! They always find his heartbeat to the left of my belly button but this time they couldn't find it. It only took a few seconds longer to find it on the right side, but it was just long enough for me to pause and wonder when I last felt movement. I haven't stressed about his well being as he always sends me reassurances with his movement, etc, just when I need it. But those few extra seconds made me that much more grateful for a healthy pregnancy!

You look wonderful! It's amazing just how reassuring their movements can be isn't it? A couple of times I went to hospital when I was pregnant with Levi because I hadn't felt him move for a while and each time when we arrived, he would start wriggling around, little monkey! Can't wait to hear the news of your little one's arrival, not long now!

Congrats on becoming an aunt! Cousins are one of the best relationships and I'm glad your children will grow up with a cousin. (: You are sooo close and I think you look amazing. Not swollen or anything. I'm sure inside you are like "IM READY DANG-IT!" (; Can't wait to read more about this journey for you.
