I know it's hard to believe, but Lovely and I hit the 30 week mark on Monday! Lovely measures in at the size of a head of lettuce this week and possibly over 3 pounds!!! YIKES! My weekly update tells me that She spends her days making faces, hiccuping, swallowing, breathing, pedaling with little hands and feet along my uterine wall, and even sucking her thumb! She's getting big!!!!! Although there are moments when I feel like a beached whale, (or rather a tipped cow), I am still very active and feeling great. I accompanied my ward's teenagers on a youth trip this weekend to Nauvoo (5 hour drive there and back) and the young men (ages 12-17) took it upon themselves to be my personal protectors and slaves. It was so cute. Skipping my afternoon nap is becoming harder and harder and my belly is growing every day! I passed my glucose test, which was quite an experience. I now understand why they give you 10 ounces when they only expect you to drink 5. Gross!!! I am still craving guacamole and fresh lemonade, but not as intensely as before. Chocolate ice cream is still a staple in our home. Ryan is well! He is currently re working our laundry room so we can inherit my parent's washer and dryer. He loves his projects, and I love taking no part in them. This actually works ideally for the both of us;) what a team. Pregnancy is wonderful and I'm still loving every minute of it.
We miss and love you all!!
Brooke, Ryan, and Lovely
