(This picture is actually from last Thursday at Maggie’s end of year picnic with her class.  I’m always a little sad when another year of preschool ends.  Maggie keeps asking if she’s going to school, I don’t think she understands the summer break concept very well!)

24 weeks

Dear Willa,

We are over halfway through our wait to meet you!  As of Wednesday, the pregnancy is 24 weeks along.  Even as I type this I can feel you wiggling and jumping in my tummy.  I never get used to it; it’s always exciting to feel you move.  I felt a little sick at the very beginning with you, for about 3 weeks.  But since then I have felt pretty good!  Sometimes I don’t sleep so great (but that is mostly due to your big sister waking up so much!).  For a while I wanted to eat tacos pretty much everyday.  Then I wanted asian food.  I have LOVED salt and vinegar chips and mustard for the whole pregnancy so far.  At the 17 week ultrasound I had to get up and move so much to get you to move around; it was really funny.



Your name, Willa, is one that I had never heard of until recently but your dad and I agreed, as he put it, that it just sounded like your name.  He said, “it resonates”.  (We’re still working on your middle name.)

You have a big brother and sister who could not be more excited about you.  Seriously.  I don’t think there was ever a pair of siblings more thrilled to have a new baby in the family.

I’ve started to think about planning your room and getting it all ready.  I have a feeling that this summer is going to fly by and you will be with us before we know it.



Mother’s Day Weekend 2018

It already feels like summer!  We had a nice weekend doing lots of nice weekend things.  Friday night pizza, first swim of the summer, a campout for the boys, movie night, Mother’s day, Meme’s birthday, and more swimming!
