The Last 9 Months: Part 3


My token Pregnancy pic. Here I am at 34 weeks. Now I'm almost 39 and quite a bit bigger.
















And a video of Asher, just chatting about his cousin Chase (Chaser-man) and such. video

The Last 9 Months: Part 2, Cancun

May, 2010 we somehow justified taking a trip to Mexico. Grammy watched the kids, and we were pampered at a beautiful resort. We still think about it often and miss the good old days of stepping outside of our hotel room and into the lazy river.

Yeah, that's a frozen drink in a monkey pineapple.














We invited 2 of our favorite people, Candice and Dave, to come along and were pleasantly surprised that they were up for it!




I didn't participate in the long jump in my delicate condition, but it was one of the highlights of the trip. Other good times include wind surfing, mini-sailboats, the time we raced Candice and Dave in the sea kayak tour (we totally won but I'm pretty sure their kayak was full of water), water aerobics in a pool full of drunk people, delicious french food, and most of all just being with friends and relaxing.





The Last 9 Months: Part 1


Quick, before I have tons of new baby pics to post, here are the last 9 months in review.

Asher Turned 2 in March! Now I'll brag a bit about him a bit, for posterity. He is so fun and full of personality. He has a shy side, but most of the time he's trying to make us laugh. He is also really smart and a great conversationalist for age 2. He was counting to 11 before he even turned two, and he now knows most of the (capital) letters by sight. He loves to torture his sister but he really loves her. When she is away, Asher asks me "where's my friend?" and when she gets home he attacks her with a hug while she stands there awkwardly stiff. I always meant to tell you guys about the time that we heard "Just Dance" on the radio and Asher, not even 2 yet, asked in his little toddler voice "Is this Yady GaGa?". We love this boy!


In March we learned that we will be having another baby girl! I am not so sure Ava would have accepted a boy. As it is, she is ecstatic and so are we!

















We became the proud owners of a minivan! Don't be jealous.













Beach trip in April! our only trip to the coast this summer was fantastic. We went for a weekend with my two brothers and their families. Next year we hope to go more often!
