Cancun

What a perfectly-timed trip. We loved every minute. We had absolutely nothing planned which meant  all day in the sun, swimming, playing beach volleyball, reading, relaxing, and eating. 





Yes, Cancun water really does look like this. 

I only had my phone as my camera for this trip and I didn't take very many pictures. Glad we took the ones we did!


Sunset walks:




We stayed at Sandos Playacar in Playa del Carmen (about an hour south of Cancun). It was a great resort with lots to do. We loved it (and the price - thanks to our love of timeshare presentations... ha).


We had such a great time!

Alex: 18 months

THIS BOY

We can't get enough of him. He is a joy. He is always happy. He is a momma's boy. We are so attached to each other. He's my little boyfriend and he needs me. 

He is developing so much personality lately, we love watching it. He's a little flirt and he loves to make us laugh.

He waves bye bye. Doesn't say much, but we're not worried about it. He has attempted to say the word "more" once and "ball" a couple of times. Still hasn't said momma and meant it. I'm trying not to take it personal. 

He can be sensitive and really needs his naps. He still takes two: 10-12pm and 3-5pm. I have probably gotten up in the night with him 5 times since he was 3 months old. 

He has 7 teeth with 3 more on the way right now. 

He loves his daddy in the mornings and won't come to me, crying when daddy leaves to work. 

He started nursery and doesn't love it. He misses his morning nap for church (11am church) which makes him super tired and fussy by nursery time... not sure what we're going to do about this. 

He loves Claire and her friends and trying to be a big boy.  He LOVES being outside and is learning to be brave (go down slides).

I love how much he loves his blue blanket and binkies. He will lay his head right down on it, no matter where it is or what time of day it is.

Ski Day & Monkey Tail

Saturday we had an awesome ski day with our neighborhood friends at Park City. We have the best friends here!  I was a little nervous about going at 6 months preggo but my friend Laura (7 months pregnant) joined, so I felt a little better. I was mostly worried about not being able to keep up.  Here we are with our bulging bellies:


Don't mind the t-shirt. It was one I didn't care about sweating in. Plus I had to fit in with my monkey-tail bearded husband. We were quite the pair. 

It was such a great day with so much powder (which made the burning in the legs intense).  But I kept up! It was a blast! 

And yes, Ben has fun with his beard. Meet... the Monkey Tail.

We stayed up till 1am bleaching this baby. 

We also bought a VAN! Yeah, baby. To be featured at a later date.

Some fun in the park when it finally reached 40 degrees.

24 weeks

Feeling pretty good. Now that all sicknesses have finally passed... I'm feeling pretty normal.  Weather has been great, we've been playing outside, and are so excited for spring/summer! Except not ready for June... still. need. time.  Baby #3 is getting wild and moving tons! I even got my first kick in the ribs. 

(Thanks Emma for the pics!)
