Happy Father’s Day Kev. Thank you for being such a patient and loving husband to me during this 10 months of pregnancy.

Here I am in all my prego glory......38 weeks! Its been so hot during the day, having a summer baby is work! I am officially on maternity leave and tonight we are heading out with some friends to have some Mexican food! I'm in need of some queso (well not really, but hey I'm still pregnant so I can say this for a few more days).
I have the cutest outfits for my boy ready (hope they fit b/c Jack has to show off his monogram starting on day one!) and of course my hospital duds packed! I'm a little nervous but overall beeeeeeming with joy! I cant believe in a few short days that all this hard work of carrying a baby will finally come to fruition!
Not sure I will get anymore preg pictures in before I have him (or at least with makeup) so enjoy this belly and we cant wait to share the real deal in a few short days!

Our friend Sarah has a great eye and a love for photography, so when she offered to take photos of our family, I couldn't wait and was so excited. She did an amazing job and I can't thank her enough!! I'm so often critical of myself, as its not easy gaining so much weight when you bear a little one, but her photo shoot made me realize how amazingly beautiful pregnancy can be. I cried a tear when I watched this video, we can't wait to meet this little guy. Thank you Sarah for your time and providing our family with photos that will be cherished forever. xoxoxo
He is already a man with a social calendar! His first wedding was at Kallie and Zack's - however we were not public yet about being preggers, though I'm certain many knew :) This time around there was no hiding this belly. Christina and George got married at Faith Lutheran Church in Bellaire on May 30th. The amazing reception was held at the Houstonian. Sarah and Andy Fossum stayed with us over the weekend and we all had a great time! Cheers to Christina and George, they are in Greece right now for two weeks, ahhhh how nice!

So today I went in for an ultrasound to measure Jackson and see how big our baby boy is! Well he is actually measuring 6 lbs 6 oz, which puts him in the 52nd percentile. Soooo we are not too big not too small. But they did say he is still measuring a week early...so I'm not really sure if that means anything, but she said if he does start to gain weight fast she will give me the option to induce in the 39th week. Which at this point is looking good, b/c my severe pelvic pain!
So while Ashley, our friend who is also the sonographer, was checking out his measurements, Jackson was playing!! He would move from side to side trying to get away from Ashley... He was being a toot! I didn't get to really see his face, because he had his arms up, probably saying "no more paparazzi ". We did get a funny shot of him playing with his toes! It was SO cute! She was able to show me his cheeks and he has some fat on them, they are adorable..it wasnt easy to get a picture of that. So here is the picture of him playing with his feet. He was for sure having a good ol' time. I just can't wait to meet him! I know Kevin is just as excited!!
And kudos to my friend JaneE - she had the most adorable little boy yesterday weighing in at 7 lbs 9 oz. Jackson and I are looking forward to meeting Hutch Denton Campbell in Austin soon! And yes she always looks that good! I am loving the matching pjs and pillow, I told her Im going out this weekend to do the same! xoxox love ya JaneE!
