24 weeks




My belly is at 24 weeks. Baby now weighs over a pound and mama has put on 13 pounds since the beginning of the pregnancy. It has been crazy hot here for a very long time. Drew has been earning some extra money before we leave by fixing up a rent house down the street that was trashed by the previous tenants. In the pictures above he is watering Marlow not the grass. As you can see our grass is beyond repair. This has been a record-breaking summer for heat, and its not even September yet. September is when Texas usually gets it hottest temps. I am so glad in a few weeks I will be headed towards an island breeze.
Drew and I went to our childbirth class. I’m relieved that we have it under our belt, but it was really nothing that I didn’t learn from my pregnancy books. The only really great thing about it was them showing drew how to massage me and calm me down. That rocked. We were the only people in the class that are trying to attempt a natural childbirth with out drugs. We were the crazy hippies.

You look amazing as always. Can't believe you have only put on 13 lbs. I have gained 7 since my wedding and I am not even pregnant! My husband is a lucky man.
