Sooo-- life has been hectic. We've been busy buying stuff in preparation for Violet (crib, stroller, rocker, etc.) and setting up the house. I finally met my doctor and am feeling more and more like a Florida resident with every passing day (though, with that said, I can still picture my San Diego house and feel as if our belongings are still there). We signed up for a Lamaze/ Child preparation class. We discovered the local dog park (only a 10 minute drive! woo hoo!) and, of course, I have discovered the local mall ;).

We only have 6 more weeks of this pregnancy thing left. I must admit, women aren't lying when they say that the last trimester, specifically, the last month of pregnancy is incredibly uncomfortable. Last week I found it hard to breath because Violet found a "comfy" spot for her feet in my lungs. This week, the extra weight has taken a toll on my energy level and all I want to do is nap. Yey! For! Pregnancy!

4D sonograms

Right after Christmas, Joe and I signed up for a 4-D sonogram (the 4th dimension is movement). We got to see Violet in full force! She was moving around, waving her left hand, sticking out her tongue, practicing her breathing, swallowing, blinking... It was crazy!! This is our favorite picture of her.
