October Happenings....

I admit that I have been a slacking blogger. However, I am going to blame most of it on the busy schedule we have and more so on the laziness of this mommy in her third trimester!!! It's already mid October and we have had so many wonderful things going on that I just had to share them with you.

Oct. 2nd...this is me at 35 weeks. 

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. New symptoms this month are heartburn, swollen ankles (still not as bad as with Grace) and extreme carpal tunnel. I have never in my life experienced a numbness and burning in my fingers and hand. It is extremely painful and has kept me a lot of nights in tears. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do. I do wear a wrist band at night and have recently elevated it and that helps some but it is still nothing I would wish on anyone else. The nurse told me pretty much the cure is delivery. Thank GOD I have three week or less (as of tomorrow).

Oct. 6, 2012...Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk

This was our 2nd annual participation in this awareness walk as Team Reese's Pieces. We had a great turn out of friends and family. We also had many online donations from various friends across the country. We are so blessed and honored to be part of such an amazing association that advocates for and loves our Reese and individuals with Down Syndrome. 

Here is our year we hope to double the participation. Good looking bunch of folks, don't ya think? 

There was fun to be had by all. All the kids enjoyed the face painting, jump houses, and pizza. 

Oct. 7, 2012...Our family style baby shower. We had so much fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the anticipated arrival of our third little princess!
