Pregnancy Update: 34 Weeks

Things are going well.  That's the update.

This is really about what Scarlett did after bath time a couple weeks ago.  She likes to hug the baby and sometimes kiss it, too (last night she kissed my belly and said, "I think it kissed me back.").  On this particular evening, with me sitting on the floor and she standing wrapped in a towel, we were face-to-face.  She asked to hug the baby and bent over to give my belly a giant hug.  Then she said she wanted to hear the baby.  I said sure, thinking that she would place her ear on my belly like a stethoscope.  She stood up, gently placed her hands on my cheeks and pushed, causing my mouth to open like a fish.  She put her ear right next to my mouth and said, "Mommy, I can hear it!"

Working out together

weights

My darling Scarlett loves to work out with me.  Nevin likes to watch for a bit and then dart off to play cars or ministicks.

Being pregnant, I'm just using light YouTube videos to get things moving.  They are perfect for Scarlett.  Its adorable.  She has her own mini physio ball that she uses and some very high-quality toilet paper roll weights.  She lunges ("I'm lunching"), she dips, she stretches ("I'm stetching"), she does tricep kickbacks.  The absolute best moments are when she tries to do something new with her body that she's never done before.  She makes me giggle, and then she does, too.

These are the moments that we forget.  These are the moments I want to remember.
