Why have I not been blogging, you ask?? The questions I ask myself are, why is Reid’s “big boy” room not even close to being finished – um, haven’t even started- why is the nursery not even close to being finished, and why doesn’t baby brother have a name yet??? We are 6 weeks out from welcoming our little guy, and I have had no chance to breathe in this month!!! Here’s what we’ve been up to and the answers to why these things are not done!!!
**We’ve been able to make a few playdates…the only pictures I took though are from Annie’s house where the boys had a picnic on the floor and then enjoyed some popsicles outside:
**Annie, Amy and I had a weekend trip to New York…
**Some of my sweet friends threw a super fabulous baby shower for me…I am seriously sick that I did not take many pictures!!!!
**I’ve had LOTS of doctor appointments – I see my OB every 2 weeks, my “blood doctor” every 4 weeks, and the perinatologist every 4 weeks. Everything is looking great – this last month or so, the baby has been measuring a week ahead!!! He currently weighs about 4 1/2 – 5 pounds!!! He seriously moves ALL.THE.TIME. My little Reid moved at certain times of the day…this little dude moves all day, and during the night when I’m trying to sleep!!!!
**My sister organized a FUN 30th birthday party for me – we started out getting manis/pedis with some lunch food that my mom and sisters prepared, and then moved on to Hotel ZaZa for some pool time. After a LONG, GREAT afternoon spent poolside, we headed to dinner at Victor Tango’s off Knox Henderson. Following that was drinks, and of course, people watching, at the Ritz in Dallas. We spent the night at Hotel ZaZa and ate at a quaint cafe for breakfast the next morning. Thanks for making my 30th a memorable weekend!!!

Puttin’ on the Ritz – with a picture of the drink that I stuck to
**We also just got back from a vacation/work trip to Horseshoe Bay where we stayed at a friend’s lake house, and at the Marriot Resort. Our last getaway before Baby #2 arrives! Once again, I wish I had taken more pictures!! We were so fortunate that my parents came with us to help out with babysitting when we had work obligations (fun stuff for me, meetings for Matt), and Reid loved having his Mimi and Pop-Pop to himself for the whole week! The resort was a great family place (except the food was not that great) and there were lots of different places to go for activities! Matt and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on Sunday, June 28 – driving home from our trip!
At the lakehouse there was a set of drums that Reid LOVED! We debated putting them up because of how noisy they were, but there were no neighbors, and it kept him occupied!!!
I love this picture because he is saying, “Ta-da!”
At the resort, there’s a beach area with a sectioned off piece of the lake that is knee-deep on toddlers – just Reid’s style!
I tried to get some “mommy and me” pics
We also spent some time at the baby pool…
We’re off to Longview this weekend for July 4th, and then after that, no more traveling!!!
