4th of July 2012

Our final 4th of July as a family of three!  It was only a week before Jaxon was scheduled to arrive.  We always have a party at our house because we have an amazing view of the fireworks from our front lawn and this year would not be any different.

I know I've said it before, but I love Pinterest.  This cute and simple little red, white, and blue snack idea was snagged from the wonderful website.

Thank you, Pinterest!

Looking so grown up!
It is not apparent from the picture below, but I was feeling really uncomfortable by this point.  Just a week away from Jaxon's arrival, I was really feeling the extra weight.  My feet constantly hurt and even got swollen this time around.  We were working 4-10's at work and I rarely made it through the entire week.  I couldn't get a good night's rest because whatever side I was laying on would start to go numb after a while and I would have to wake up to roll over.  And rolling over at 38 weeks pregnant is not an easy task - I would grunt and groan through the entire process.  And the pressure had to be the worst!  I felt that Jaxon was just going to pop his little head through at any moment.  So although this pregnancy was just as wonderful for the first 8 months as my pregnancy with Gavin, the final month (or final three weeks, rather), were really rough!

Our family of three...soon to be four!
