Beautiful weather!

The last 2 weekends have been absolutely gorgeous. It's a good thing because if I had to sit inside and think about how the LARGENESS has set in, it would not be pretty. It's one thing to be 8.5 months pregnant, but quite another to be 8.5 months pregnant, stuck inside with a 2 year old. This baby in the tummy has gone straight into my ribs in a quick and violent way. I find myself waddling quite a bit at this point and it just ain't attractive. I've been making valliant efforts to walk in a normal fashion realizing in a few weeks I actually won't have a choice but to walk like a duck. As a general update I'll be 36 weeks on Friday. As of my 33 week ultrasound, the baby already weighed in at 4 lbs 11 ounces. As many of you know, Pollard was a full 10 pound baby. I'm kinda looking not to do that twice so we'll see how far I get with my full on sales-convincing capabilities with the doctor next week. Maybe I should show up with no make up on, looking as bad as I feel?
Here are some pics of what we've been up to lately...

With our new house came a rockin' playset that has become the center of Pollard's world. It has also become the main part of the day where I almost lose bladder control watching his hair static up like he just stuck his finger in a plug.

(PS Pollard just walked up and said "WHOA! Wook at Powward! He can swide down!" Love this kid).

I realized on this Sunday when we skipped church (tisk tisk) and I had no make up on that we had NO pregnant pictures of me (poor 2nd child). Here I am, 34 weeks.

I am also spoiled enough to have had both of my sisters-in-law and Britton's cousin Alex throw me a dutch treat diaper shower at my favorite restaurant, Michael's Table. It was so perfect, a LOAD of fun and I got diapers galore! (poor Jenn had the nasty cold-thingy that's going around...boy did I miss her...)

Here I am with Britton's grandmother and my Mom (doesn't Gigi look dynomite?), Julia and Alex, and a group shot! Also I thought a good pic of me and the grandmommas :)

And because I look for any excuse to invite my parents in town, they came for the entire weekend after the Thursday night shower. Dad had a FULL knee replacement just 6 weeks ago...can't tell, can ya? We went to the park and enjoyed the bubbles they brought for my little Tasmanian Devil. He looooooves Mimi and Papa...

And today was President's Day so we went to the zoo. After purchasing an annual pass, we took full advantage. The entire ride over Pollard was geeking about seeing "Baby animals!"
Here he is looking for the turtles and, was it? Can't remember, saw so many animals...

And here are the twinkies looking at the Bison, and a shot of the LARGENESS, complete with my outtie. Se tiger behind us...yowza she was a biggun.
The other day I was changing clothes and all of a sudden Pollard ran in the room, stopped where he was and started dying out laughing. I quickly realized he was looking at my belly button after he started trying to push it back in as hard as he could. I couldnt' blame him, it does look pretty darn hilarious if it's not YOU...

Pollard's awesome sayings:

1) Will run into a room and say "Hey! What are youuuuuu doin there?"

2) Loves to cover your eyes for you and say "Hey! I got a supwise, nooo peeking!" Then when he lifts his hands away he yells "PEEKABOO!" So we're guessing he is the surprise...
3) Gives a two thumbs up and says "This is GREAT!"
We are constantly surprised by his vocabulary. What a smarty pants.
Adios for now!
