31 Weeks & In Keeping With the Olympic Theme...

Like my previous post suggests, we've really enjoyed watching the Olympics in our household.

We even planned a trip up to Vancouver this weekend, until we realized Sam's passport had expired at the beginning of THIS MONTH. Fail. Yeah, a passport that is issued for 10 years goes and expires on the month we need to leave the country for a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Oh well, maybe that just means we need to go to London for the 2012's.

So, in keeping with the Olympic theme, I gotta make a movie recommendation: Miracle.

If you haven't seen this, it's definitely worth renting. Just don't expect something unpredictable. I mean, we all know how this ends right? It's no big secret.

But what makes this movie amazing is how accurate it is to the true events. It is an AMAZING story and it's told really well in this movie.

Feel free to shout out some other good flicks worth watching. I'm always open to suggestions.

31 Week Update

31 weeks. 9 weeks left. NINE SINGLE DIGIT weeks!!

I read the other day that Baby's activity in the womb peaks right about now. After this he starts getting too squished in there to really do his moves.

He's definitely getting more and more active everyday as last night I couldn't even imagine what was going on in there. Like, spastic breakdancing aerobatics! I had to laugh as these jerky, rapid, repetitive kicks and rolls went on for dang near an hour. Maybe I should make myself a pre-bed chocolate strawberry smoothie every night! He sure liked it. says 31 week old Baby N. is about the size of 4 navel oranges. I think the picture this week is a little bit lame, but you get the idea. Imagine swallowing 4 of these. Whole. Yup, that's what I feel like.
This was another week of feeling pretty good. Or maybe I'm just getting used to the constant discomfort? If I can still manage to make it to the gym a few times a week, get out of bed for work each day, and find clothes that fit each morning, then I consider it a good week. Wait, these things are getting kinda hard... ah well. There's light at the end of the tunnel! And we are getting SO excited.

Did I mention we're down to SINGLE digit weeks left?? Hip hip hooray!!

    Thanks for the movie suggestions, and keep em coming. Ever since we got a tv for our room we have been having 'date nights' at home. But man, been watching some really dumb movies lately. So we will have to check that one out.. :)

    Woo hoo, I am so excited you are in the single digits!!! Can't wait to come see the little guy! You are looking great - it seems like I did not look that good at ALL when I was in the 3rd tri! So glad he is healthy and growing fast, hopefully the next few weeks will fly!!
