It has been quite a while since I have posted, so I'm not sure where to start!
I am 35.5 weeks pregnant, and only 25 days left to go until my c-section! It will be exactly 18 months after Hallie's birthday. June 19th - same day of the month as Hallie and Farrah! I am so so so excited to meet this baby and have the surprise of the gender. We have not yet decided on a name, and I'm pretty sure we're not even close. It's hard enough to pick one name, but trying to decide on a boy and a girl name is even harder!
We moved last weekend and are trying to get settled. So far, we love it. We are not far from where we were - we have lots more space and a huge yard to play in :) I am pretty unsettled as far as unpacking and decorating, but I know it will get done. I swear all I need are diapers for this baby and I'm set. I cannot wait to hold my baby!!! You realize after the first baby, then a second, then from a miracle baby that you didn't get to keep here on earth long --- how much you really don't need. Everything material seems so insignificant to me now. For the most part, of course. I still love all the baby stuff -- but it's the least of my concern these days! I'm just treasuring every kick (and there are A LOT!!) and trying to not complain about pains too much (which I fail at!) as we await this sweet new family member.
Ryan and Melissa had their first baby last night. Melissa did awesome, and she and Ryan are already natural and great parents. It is so cool seeing your sibling as a parent, holy cow. Holding Hollis made me even more ready and excited. She is so incredibly beautiful and perfect. I love how our families are growing!
Here are a bunch of photos to play catch up!

May 1st- Wednesdays are my days with just Farrah while Bella is at school. This is at one of our favorite playgrounds / parks. It has a creek and I let them take their rainboots and play in it. They could play all day!!

Love having girls.
