What?! A baby update?!

So...third trimester. Wow, that really snuck up on us.
So much so that this is the only intentional baby bump photo we have taken.

These two kiddos have been pretty incredible with the whole 'baby in mommy's tummy' thing- especially Eli. Every day when I picked him up from school, he would run up to me and ask if the baby was awake. He prays for the baby, sings songs and tells it good night every day.
Melt my heart.

Chris and I both notice that things are a little rougher this go 'round. More uncomfortable....less sleep...all earlier. At least it seems that way! No throwing-up this go 'round, but I do stay away from heavy, fried foods and the smell of fish.
I crave salads. Specifically, Hungry Howe's chef salad (no olives or cheese) with their Italian dressing. Seriously, I force myself to only get one a week....and then I have it for leftovers for a couple of days.
I feel like the baby is a boy- Chris thinks it is a girl. We are excited either way. We love little boys, and at the same time want Ileigh to have a sister! We have our names ready to go, most all the supplies somewhere in the attic...now all we need is the baby! ;)

 Sweet one,
Know just how loved you already are. We are so excited to add you to our family and you have a big brother and a big sister that are so ready to meet you. You are a blessing and we can't wait to see what your future holds.

And, just for fun, here I am seven months pregnant with Eli and then Ileigh....
