On Wednesdays we wear army green.
Happy Monday! We had a really nice, relaxing weekend. Got some things done around the house, took Emmett to the aquarium and got in some pool time. Ryan starting carrying Emmett around the pool on his back and Em holds on like a little koala.
I’m in a neighborhood book club and Saturday was our innagural meeting. Our first book was Still Alice. Both the book and the movie are really good! I brought over Laura Bush’s Cowboy Cookies and man, are they good.
As of today, I am officially 28 weeks pregnant and in the third trimester! Time is going fast and slow at the same time. Fast because I still can’t wrap my head around having two kids/get a handle on what we actually need for two kids and slow because I still have two months that I’m going to get bigger and bigger. Did I mention how I really want a drink??
My weekly email says that our baby boy is the size of a kabocha squash. WTF is that?
I’m still feeling really well, but I do feel a little bit slower and more achy this time around. To combat this, I eat a lot of cookies and ice cream. Hence the large squash in my stomach. Yikes. 😬
We’re pretty much settled in back home but I wanted to post a couple pictures of our adventure back to Charleston. Before we headed to the airport, we grabbed brunch with my girlfriends and their significant others to spend time together one last time before we all went our separate ways. I snapped this cute picture of Emmett and Thomas and their dads.
We had a two hour layover in Chicago where we had dinner and Emmett wowed everyone with his throwing skills. It was great that he made some friends because he was going to need it once we got on the plane! Our flight was scheduled to leave around 9:50pm which I thought would be great because Emmett would just sleep. Wrong. We got stuck on the runway for over an hour because of thunderstorms. Guess who was awake the whole time and didn’t fall asleep until we took off after 11:30. We landed in Charleston at 3am and didn’t get home until 4am. Ugh. Bad planning on my part.
But now we are all back in the groove at home and these two boys have been reunited.
Ready for a picture overload?? We did a lot yesterday! Our morning started off with a family brunch at Taylor and Kirsten’s.
We started yesterday morning off with a trip to the Como Zoo where Emmett fed a giraffe!
College roomies with our toddlers and both expecting new babies this year!
While Ryan was fishing with his brother…
We woke up bright and early yesterday to make the 4 hour drive to visit Ryan’s sweet 95 year old Grandma in Sioux Falls. Obviously some Caribou Coffee was necessary!
Last night Grandpa Jim and Grandma Barb babysat so Ryan and I could have a date night in St. Paul. We (well Ryan) had a beer at our favorite college bar, O’Gara’s…
We drove past our college houses and had dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant (which spoiler alert, wasn’t that great anymore haha). We met Eric and Heidi for a drink in Minneapolis and then headed to Uptown to see our friend Nelly. Meanwhile Emmett was loving life with Grandma and Grandpa!
