When Justin and I got married I remember the photographer being in awe that we had so many grandparents on both sides who were able to share our special day with us. It made for some great wedding photos with all the generations of our family. Since then we have had to say goodbye to several of them, but there are a couple who are still going strong! One of them is Jacob’s Oma. The night before our photo session at Leo Carillo Ranch, I woke up at 2 am which is pretty much the norm with this pregnancy, (I guess he’s preparing me for the 2 am feeding…) and it dawned on me that we would be very close to where Oma lives and my mom happened to be in town and this was a great opportunity to get some nice professional photos of the 4 generations. So when everyone else woke up that morning and we started getting ready I told my mom my idea and asked our photographer if she would be willing to take a little side trip and do a mini session with Oma and we made it work!
When we arrived, my mom went to get Oma and the rest of us went outside in the courtyard to scope out a place for pictures, and Jacob was showing Justin his favorite swing that he plays on when we go to visit.
Then the star of the show arrived and we got to work
Oma will be 92 years old in a couple of weeks, I hope that if I make it to 92 I look this good!
This last weekend was filled with lots of friends, family and fun! Justin’s parents and grandma came to visit, and Jacob loves that time spent with them! On Saturday my girlfriends thew a shower for baby #2. It was a nice intimate day with some awesome girls who I am so thankful to be on this motherhood journey with!
At school, Jacob’s class had an Easter party so he was already stocked up on eggs and Easter goodies. Including a bunny hat he made and kept on his head when we went to go visit Oma later that day.
So on Easter Sunday we had a nice morning at church and just spent the rest of the day together relaxing.
Sunday also marked 36 weeks of pregnancy for me. I am now going to the doctor weekly and all continues to look good. My belly dropped and our little guy is in position, ready to go. I have been having alot of Braxton Hicks, which I didn’t have too much of with Jacob. So I keep thinking every single day that I will be going into labor. Which is kind of good because it motivated me to finally get my hospital bag packed and the infant car seat ready to go! This morning at my checkup I was talking to my doctor about all the Braxton Hicks I’ve been having so she checked to see if I am dialating yet and I am not. Whew! That makes me feel a little bit better and I’m just praying that he stays put for at least another week. Here’s my 36 week belly.
