growing belly!

I'm actually going on 27 weeks, but we took these at 25 weeks... as you can tell, someone is very excited to be a big brother!

Pumpkin patch!

We had a lot of fun going to the pumpkin patch/apple orchard with Krista and Landen! We just can't get enough of that little munchkin!
If you scroll down past the family pictures post, you will find our vacation pictures - I published it late, so it goes to the bottom - we had so much fun, looking at the pictures makes me want to go back!!!

family pics

I've been having lots of issues uploading my posts to blogger, so hopefully this works! We had our family pictures done last week, and I'm so happy how they turned out! Gavin was such a ham, striking his own poses and making picture suggestions!
Now for some updated baby news... the little stinker has been causing me some discomfort! Last night I had to leave work early because I was cramping and contracting - seriously, though, I have some amazing coworkers - we really do take care of one another! I still didn't feel quite right this morning, so I called the clinic to be seen. When the Dr checked me, he said that my cervix is closed, but that it is thinning and shortened. He put me on modified bedrest just for the weekend, and then we will re-evaluate on monday. I'm hoping that a weekend of rest will help to settle things down and then I can go back to normal activity. I feel a lot better even today after just resting all day. I worry what long term bedrest would mean for Gavin - he kind of likes his mama to hang out with him! Tonight, after Bryan picked him up from school, he just crawled into bed with me to snuggle!I'm thankful for all of the support that we have - but really, don't worry yet - we are doing fine!

Disney World 2011

3 very tired boys after a full day at the parks!

Fianlly, a vacation post! I have been having issues with blogger, so this post has been waiting to be published for awhile now, guess it just took a little bedrest boredom to get me going! We had a fabulous time in Disney World this year! It was so nice to spend a whole week with our entire family! It's so fun now that Gavin knows where we are going and what we are going to do! The very first night we got there, we hopped on a bus and took the boys to EPCOT... at 10:00 O'clock at night! Then the next morning, they got up bright and early without a complaint to go have breaskfast with Lilo, Stitch and Mickey! Gavin was so excited to meet the characters he didn't have time to eat! The rest of the day we spent at the Magic Kingdom while we waited for the Peterson's to meet us. Sunday was a day of golf for the dad's, so the girls hung out with the little boys at the Animal Kingdom. We had so much fun showing them all the animals, going on rides and exploring Rafiki's planet watch. The rest of the week we explored all the parks and spent most of our afternoons in the pool! Thursday night we took the boys to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue at Camp Wilderness! It may have been the highlight of Gavin's trip! He stole an entire bowl of mashed potatoes just for himself, danced along with the music and laughed hard at all of the jokes! Friday we started our day at Chef Mickey's and got to meet our favorite characters! Our last night we all ate dinner at Cape May Cafe - one of our favorite traditions! Gavin had more fun helping me crack my crab than actually eat it! We had such a fun week! Gavin keeps talking about everything we saw and did, and how he can't wait to take his brother some day! I can't wait for that either!! So much to look forward to!
