30 weeks 5 days

Hello my love!

It's Memorial Day weekend which means it's almost June and officially summer! I do believe this summer is going to be hot one! We've already had a few days over 90 degrees! With our luck, you will be born on the hottest day of the year, whereas your brother was born the day before it snowed several inches! My opposite boys...I just hope that opposite concept doesn't contine in personality! LOL!

We are getting down to the nitty-gritty now love! You and I only have about 9 weeks left--and that's if you decide to wait and arrive on your due date! It is so exciting to think I will be holding you in my arms that soon! I'm ready!

I've been seeeing pics or videos of little newborn babies a lot lately and it just makes me smile to know that my arms will be full very soon. We've been waiting a long time for you. Your brother is ready for you to show up too. He's still worried about my belly button and now is trying to determine how you are going to get out of there!

He's been enjoying feeling you move. He grins so big and likes to find where you are in my tummy. Lately you've been pushing back when he pushes on you. I try to remind him to be gentle for both of our sakes.

Mommy is still under orders to watch what she eats. She's really missing all her fruit, but has been able to restrain herself very well. But when you come out, you bet your sweet feet that mommy will be enjoying all the little things she's been avoiding--mostly all my fave fruits! I've eaten more eggs in the last month than I usually do in a period of SEVERAL months! LOL! But you are worth it. Very worth it.

We received our first box of diapers from a church friend yesterday. It tickled your daddy and pleased mommy a lot! Of course, we know you will be dirtying those suckers up within a week for sure! LOL! Mommy was glad to see that they were NOT the ones under fire right now. It's scary to think that diapers could be causing severe diaper rashes and chemical burns due to new chemicals/technology being used on them. Makes me again hope that your daddy will allow me to switch to cloth after a few months.

It's hot and humid and I'm ready to go stick my feet in our creek!

I love you now, forever and always!

Well my dearest little boy, we are so close! As of this coming Tuesday we will be down to just 10 more weeks before your expected due date! That's really not that long at all! I think it's going to fly by!

Everyone has been making guesses lately of when they think you will come or they've been telling me how big they think you are going to be. It's always fun to hear people make guesses, so I decided to create a game where everyone can place their guess and I can see what people think in regards to your arrival and size! All they have to do is go to THIS SITE to make their guess! It's going to be fun to see what happens and to see who guesses it the closest! I even made a guess! I'm guessing that you will squeak into the month of July and be a little bit bigger than your brother...but that's just my guess!

I'm on my new diet now. It's just a diet where I watch the amount of carbs and sugars I eat. Not so much sugars like candy...I don't eat that at all...but more the sugars that are in carbs. It's not exactly my cup of tea, but I will do it for your sake. Besides, it keeps your mommy from gaining very much weight! LOL!

I have another doctor's appointment this week. I'm guessing they will do another ultrasound to see how you are growing. I do enjoy seeing you in there. I sure can feel you! You like to turn over and aren't really a kicker like your brother was, but that's okay by me!

Well my darling, I hope you keep on growing and staying healthy. You are allowed to stay in there for no less than 8 more it?? LOL!

I love you now and forever!

Dear Baby Justin,

It's hard to believe, but we are officially in our THIRD TRIMESTER! From here on out, it's just a matter of me getting ready for your arrival! It is going to go by pretty fast I'm sure and before I know it, I'll be picking your Mum-Mum up at the airport again!

Mommy just got back this past week from visiting your Papa and Mum-Mum out on the west coast with your brother. We had a great time and found all sorts of adorable things for you to wear when you come. We also made mommy a ringsling to use and it's SUPER pretty in a gorgeous blue Sari fabric. I can't wait to try you out in it!

Here is our photo for the month:

I think I've finally caught up bellywise with the amount of weeks I am! I don't get nearly the "oh wow, you are so huge!" comments anymore! LOL! But mommy does swell up in the humidity. Thankfully it's been a mix of sun and rain so I don't have to be swollen EVERY day.

Mommy decided that we are going to make all your baby food. With your brother, we made a little and used organic jars...but this time around, I'm going to just let you have the delicious tasty veggies and fruit as I make them! It will be so much healthier for you!

It's about time to buy our first pack of diapers for you. They always look so small when they are the newborn or size 1...but your little bunsies will grow fast, I'm sure.

Well, my love that's it for this week. Keep growing and staying healthy for me!

All my love forever and always,
