This little one is growing and growing. I can't believe there are still 2 months left...because it seems there is no room left in my belly! It has been such an amazingly smooth and easy pregnancy. The only scares come from working and terrify myself with all the "what ifs" and unknowns that happen with pregnancy. Working in high-risk labor and delivery which takes on lots of babies with problems, I have to remind myself to separate my pregnancy from theirs. The things I see are neither common nor the norm, but it sure seems like it when I'm surrounded by it all 3 times a week. But therein lies the point where I grow in faith that my God will give me all that I need, whatever the situation. I have seen and overcome great things in life, seen miracles worked, watched amazing things happen. I know my God is going to lead me and provide all that I need, forever. So I try to just enjoy the ease of this pregnancy and keep dreaming about my little baby girl.

The zoo is yet another place that has come more alive now that Josiah is older! He had so much fun visiting all the animals and just watched them so intently. He has now perfected his monkey sound as those were by far his favorite! He laughed so much as they swung around and said "uh oh" as they dropped to the ground. This kid is amazing, and more than watching all the zoo animals, I found myself just watching him..waiting to see his reaction!

My aunt and uncle have a plane and so we went and visited them at the hanger after a trip with my parents. Josiah was so impressed and gave a big "ooooh!" as soon as he saw the plane up close! He loved getting inside and being a pilot...I think he might have a big career ahead of him!

Mother's Day found us over at my grandparent's house (where else) for a potluck of sorts and strawberry shortcake. I always love it when we are all together and it was such a nice, sunny day to be outside. Josiah loved his freedom to run all over my grandparent's place! It's so fun being a mother and to have the joy of watching my son grow up and dream about what my baby girl will be like! I never knew being a mom would be THIS great!

We are slowly but surely getting ready for our baby girl. Ariel, along with a little help from Josiah, painted the room light pink. I wasn't going to do pink, kind of felt against the whole color coding our kids idea, but whatever, we have a light pink room and I love it! Her closet is starting to fill up too as I can't help but looking at all the amazing girl clothes around! I fear this is just the beginning of that as it'll probably only get worse as she is born and grows!

Summer is such a fun time to be outside and Josiah wants nothing else. He LOVES being outside, to say the least, and always hates it when it's time to come in. He has found a new love these days...the hose! So why not teach him he can drink from it, not only throw water on things! He thinks that is the coolest thing ever! He also learned that he can spit it out afterwards for additional fun! It certainly means a clothes change afterwards, but we can handle that!

We got to take Josiah to see Sesame Street Live in Portland and were so surprised that he actually loved it. If there is anything that can keep this boy's attention for more than 10 minutes, it has to be good! He loved all the singing and dancing and the animals (or whatever they are) would come out to the audienc...definitely his kind of thing. It's so great to do things like this as he gets older and is more interested and able to pay attention to them. He tried cotton candy for the first time and we got a big "mmm, mmmm, mmm!"

This is my view from the kitchen window...and I love it. I am so blessed to have a husband that is so involved and dedicated to the life of Josiah. They play endlessly together and Josiah knows he is the one to go to for the really good kind of playing! So this is what I watched the other night as I made dinner...my two boys swinging.
