Happy Birthday Grandma!! (For those not in the know... Grandma is Ryan's mom.. and Nana is my mom)

Today is Grandma's birthday.... So since she can't be here, we have some photos for her to enjoy!!!
Ryan decided to join us for a pix or two :)

He also spread a little love while he was in the room

And of course, the regular weekly update pix.....
34 weeks from the front

and from the side

Seems a wee bit larger eh? well we've put on a few pounds in the past couple of weeks (well more than a few... but who's counting?) Feeling good, tired as hell, but good. Not much to complain about. A little back pain, a little heartburn, but nothing that can't be dealt with. In two weeks we are cleared for home birth, and in 6 weeks we hit our estimated due date.. but of course the baby can come before that.. or several weeks after, so don't get too excited, anything can happen. Goonie moves like crazy. Likes to stick his(or her) little butt out ... and his (or her) little feet out at the same time.. let me tell you, that is a wee bit, uncomfortable. And we look a little lopsided when that happens. When he (or she) is rolling around, it's like two pigs fighting under a blanket in there.... quite a sight to behold!

Ryan gets to go fishing this weekend for a short overnight trip.. and boy does he need a little vacation! He's been working all day, then coming home and working on projects till WAY to late at night. But stuff has to get done, and he's a perfectionist. Tonight he said "I'm going to miss you guys!"... aw... he'll be missed here too, but I think we can find a way to occupy ourselves for a day or two!
I'm hoping to finish painting the nursery tomorrow, but since he's taking the camera with him you'll have to wait till the end of the weekend to see what it looks like!

We had some landscaping start this week also.... I'll show you some 'before' pix.... and then have some updates as to what's changed. You'll see.. it's going to be HUGE.

These are all the back yard, before anything happened... Yes.. we had a lot of weeds. yes.. i know it looks like crap.

And here is the front yard, before.... yeah.. it's pretty crappy too.

When Ryan gets home from fishing we'll show you the changes after one week. It's amazing! They did more in 15 minutes then I could have done all summer. I realized after they'd been working for an hour that they were worth EVERY penny we were paying them. You'll see... oh yes, you'll see!
