What a Weekend!

I have lots of pictures to share this week, we’ve had a fabulous weekend of fun. Before I get to that, I have to share the link to the sneak peek of our maternity photo session with Justine. We absolutely LOVE these pictures! Check them out here. Thank you, Justine!

I’m now 35 weeks pregnant, baby girl weighs about 5.25 pounds and is about 18 inches long, about the size of a honeydew melon.  Her major organs are nearly complete and her liver is functional. I’m still feeling good, my hips are sore in the morning but other than that I’m very happy to not have any major aches and pains. Here’s this week’s belly photo:

We have had a weekend of fun! Yesterday Max and I went to a birthday party for three very special triplets who are turning one. There was pizza, cake, and rides and a farm to explore. Maxwell loved the cake, of course:

We rode a train, which was a huge hit. It went through a tunnel that was pitch black, and when we came out Max immediately said, “More!”

Ready to ride:

We rode with our friends Brent, Justine and Isabelle:

Max really liked the tractors:

We “drove” an antique car with our friends Collin and Jenn. Max was sitting too close to me to get a picture, but here’s Collin driving in the backseat. I think he’s a natural:

After our day of fun at the farm, today the celebration continued with a cupcake party with our friends Angel, Eric and Emmeline. Angel had purchased a discounted cupcake decorating session at Seattle’s Cupcake Royale, and we were lucky enough to be invited to join them. As you might guess, Max was thrilled to see a table full of cupcakes ready to be eaten. He helped put some frosting on and then focused most of his energy on eating. Emmeline was much cleaner about the whole process and enjoyed licking the frosting off her cupcake. Of course many pictures were taken:

This is the expression you get when you ask Emmeline to smile. I love it!

Here’s what the table looked like when we were through:

All cleaned off and cute as ever:

The kids giving each other a good-bye hug and kiss. So precious!

On the way home we decided to make a stop at Seattle institution Dick’s Drive In. Max enjoyed his first visit:

What a wonderful weekend together. I love spending time with my boys, and it will be so fun to spend time as a family of four before too long. My theory about Max either sleeping past 7:00am or taking a nap isn’t holding up these past few days…we’ve had three days in a row without a nap, including Friday when he woke up at 6:45. But we’re not giving up hope, and if nothing else he happily does “quiet time” (which involves a lot of talking and singing) in his crib for a good hour and change, so we’ll certainly keep that up.

We’re looking forward to the coming week, Oma and Opa arrive on Tuesday!
