The Look

On Saturday we met up with Grandpa D for lunch. When I took Little A's mooks (milk) away because she was making a mess, here's the look she gave me.

This may or may not be the same look Mommy gives her when she's doing something she's not suposed to. I'm sure I'll see this look many more times in the years to come.

Bath Time

Little A LOVES bath time. Every time she goes in the bathroom, she says "bath, bath" followed by "duck" (after all, she needs her toys if she's going to take a bath). Needless to say, she's a happy girl when it really is bath time.

E laughs that she looks like a different girl during bath time because her hair is so straight. But it doesn't take long for those curls to come back. The next pictures were taken less than 10 minutes after she got out of the tub.

29 Weeks

I always think of the year in trimesters because of my school's calendar. It has worked out with both babies that my pregnancy trimesters match up pretty closely to the school trimesters. I'm due with BGS #2 just a few days before the end of our first trimester at school. The end of the first trimester of school seems far away, but baby's due date seems so close! It's funny how my sense of time changes depending on the situation.

I'm feeling a lot bigger these days. My very coworkers have been kind, and have told me I have a little belly, and I look good for being over six months along now, but the students... that's another story. I was rushing down the hall to get my picture taken and I heard a student who I don't know say, "holy pregnant!" That just made me laugh. Middle school kids don't hide their thoughts very well.

I think part of the reason I'm feeling bigger is because I'm having more trouble sleeping at night. When I'm not preggo, I am a deep sleeper, and it's E who is up several times. Now we're both up several times. I'm even up most mornings before my alarm, which is VERY unlike me.

While Little A doesn't really understand that there's a baby coming, she knows there is something going on with Mommy's growing belly. A few times in the past week she's come to snuggle with me, and curled herself up on my belly. It's pretty cute to see her cuddling with her little sister, even if she doesn't know that's what she's doing.

Fair Time!

The Minnesota State Fair is huge. And considering we live less than 2 miles away, we usually try to go. We skipped last year because Little A was still pretty little, and it's always right before Labor Day, which last year meant it started right when I went back to work. This year we decided it would be fun to take Little A and head out to the fair.
She got to work on the farm, just like Daddy when he was little :)
The Miracle of Life building combined two of Little A's favorite things, babies and farm animals. She walked around all of the animal buildings making animal noises. It was very cute!
And no trip is complete without a bucket of Sweet Martha's cookies, and a trip to the all you can drink milk station. Little A thought the cookies were very, very tasty!

Clinging to Summer

It's starting to feel like fall here, but we're still clinging to the little bit of summer that's left. E picked up a watermelon this weekend, and Little A sure thought it was good!
Oh, and check out Little A's curls! She's getting more curls by the day. It is CRAZY!
