So I turned 30 yesterday. I think I handled the transition out of my 20's pretty well. But being 38 weeks pregnant and super emotional there were a few bumps in the road. I know 30 is not old! And I have such a blessed life, amazing 2 1/2 year old, baby on the way, super husband, great house, get to be a stay at home mom... but it still feels weird to be 30!

Nate came home from work yesterday with these beautiful flowers for me!!

And this super yummy ice cream cake!! Yes it was even better than it looks! :)

The third letter

Okay so here is the third letter of little brothers name to be told! You still have no idea how many letters there are, but you know that N, S and O are three of them! :)

We have enjoyed the guesses to so much already!! And look forward to hearing more!

Well I had another appointment today, but there is nothing to report. Baby is still in there, still moving like crazy, heart rate in the 140's, but not making sign of coming out any time soon. So we just continue to wait to meet this little boy!

Center Grove

Nate Judson and I spent some great family time this morning at Center Grove Orchard. There was a big Corn Pool that Judson LOVED to play in.

He loved to put it on his head, bury his feet, roll around in it... it was a fun thing. He kept wanting us to get in with him, but it was a pretty busy place!! All the kids were having such a great time.

There was also a kid hay maze. He liked waking through that too. The first time he walk right to the exit with no wrong turns!! Nate and I were super impressed!! But the next two times he was a little more distracted and needed a little help. They have a big corn maze too, but this was a much better size for Judson. And a much better amount of time for all of us! :)

Judson's second favorite to the corn pool was the train. He rode it many many times and would have ridden more if we had let him.

He did such a great job holding tight and sitting still. By the last time he rode though he was getting more comfortable. He would let go and wave to us!!

There was also a great slide that Nate went down with him. The first time down he was not so sure, but after that he LOVED it as well. I never captured the smile, but it was awesome!!

There were also many animals to see and feed. Judson liked to look at them, but was not so sure about the feeding part. It was hard for him to keep his hand flat. So he just gave up after awhile.

Checking out the one room school house

Riding the peddle tractors. He is getting very good at peddling, but these were a little heavy for him and his legs were a little to short. Good thing Dad was there to help!

Hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. It was windy and my hair was flying everywhere!

Looking around for a good pumpkin!

Found a perfect little one.

It was a very fun morning!

Another Letter...

So as promised here is another letter in our new little boys name. Again they are in no order, but both N and S are in his name!! Bring on the guesses!! :) It has been so much fun to hear what everyone thinks! And we will be excited to see what everyone things when his name is reveled.

As far as how I am doing... Pretty good. I am getting more ready everyday to hold this little baby and introduce him to everyone! His clothes are washed, bassinet is put up, groceries are stocked...we are as ready as we can be. I have been feeling well, but BIG!! Everything takes more energy and time these days. Which can be a hard thing for Judson to understand. But he is patient with me! :) Sleeping is getting harder. Rolling over and getting comfortable are so hard to do. My hands swell a ton at night and are so sore in the mornings. My feet also swell and ache at night. The swelling is something that I never experienced with Judson, but I was also pregnant in the winter. I was hoping to be a little more comfortable at the end of this pregnancy with Fall weather. But NO!! It has been in the 80's and HOT!! What a funny October!! Well no matter what this baby will be here soon! I am 37 1/2 weeks already!
