As I write this, I am currently 38 weeks and 2 days along – almost there! I’m so glad we had the forethought to take a few bump shots last weekend. It’s so much easier to get this stuff done when it’s the first child, or even the second, but we’re trying our best to make sure baby boy #3 is well documented!
I figure now is a good time to share a few of the details of this pregnancy. It has surely been the hardest, mostly because a) I was nauseous for the first trimester, which I hadn’t had the joy of experiencing before, and b) I was taking care of not one, but two active children while pregnant this time around. So far this baby has distinguished himself by being super strong and active. I don’t recall Avery or Kieron being such kickers! And although I’m measuring right on each week at the OB’s, I could swear he’s going to be a giant!
It’s fun to muse about what this little boy will be like and look like. Avery and Kieron are both so unique and different from one another. And each seems like a pretty even split between myself and Jonathan, but in completely different ways. Will this one be more like Avery or Kieron, or another totally different combination? As the day gets nearer, we’re more and more excited to find out, and can’t wait to meet our new addition the the family!
February is almost over, and there are no snowstorms or power outages to report. This has been the month of parties. Four birthday parties, one Super Bowl party, one engagement party, and one “we’re having a baby party,” to be exact. Unfortunately, we forgot to take any pictures at our baby party, but I’ll let the pics below tell the story of what we’ve been up to the rest of the month:
Right after eating breakfast, Kieron looks forward to making coffee with Daddy every morning
Our little chef is big on helping out in the kitchen
Kieron moved into his big boy bed almost two weeks ago. The transition went surprisingly smoothly. At nap time he is still in his crib though because he gets up over and over again and Mommy is in no condition to be lifting him back into bed repeatedly.

Screaming “get away from me!”
And when that doesn’t work, throwing elbows (I just love the shirts they’re wearing in these pics)
We went to an engagement party last weekend. The groom rowed in college with Jonathan, and the party was at a rowing club on Lake Union, and much of the team was there. Avery and Kieron had a blast playing with Jim & Renee’s kids, Logan and Ali. We got some cute pics of them on the ergs.
Kieron spent a good portion of the evening at the cooler trying to get a beer
