28 Weeks

Once again the month has almost slipped by me and I'm behind on updates. We're moving right along with the pregnancy. I think it's pretty obvious that Caleb has been growing quite a bit lately. Comments I've been getting the last few weeks run along the lines of "You are definitely pregnant. There's no hiding it now." "That baby has popped out!" "All of a sudden you are showing." I've been thinking these thoughts for a few months now, but apparently we've reached the stage where everyone else thinks so too. :-)
I'm 28 weeks pregnant now, which means we're into the 3rd trimester, I have about 12 weeks left (give or take), and the calendar is showing less than 3 months until Caleb is here! I'm still feeling great and doctor's reports are all good. We're very thankful for these blessings! Caleb continues to kick and roll around a lot, and Stephen and I have been enjoying watching my tummy dance as he moves.
Stephen and I went on vacation last week and had an awesome time just relaxing and being together. We jokingly called it our second honeymoon/babymoon - the last big vacation before we are officially parents. It was such a great week of being with my best friend in the whole world and I can't really imagine it being much more perfect. We slept in everyday, ate at some great restaurants, took in some of the sights, and just enjoyed each other's company. Perfect.

I have been wanting to get some pictures of Stephen on here because I feel like they have all been me and my belly lately. My wonderful husband deserves some of the spotlight as well, so here he is with our newly purchased highchair. This was a present from my Grandparents. Since we were in Arkansas when we saw them last, they gave us a gift card to use for the highchair and I wanted to make sure I got a picture of it on here for Grandma Vicky to see. It's still in the box at the moment, but we'll be sure to put another picture up when there's a little boy sitting in that seat with baby food all over his face. I can't wait! :-)

You look beautiful, Rachel! How fun to feel your baby moving and growing. I'm so glad that you and Stephen had your getaway. What a blessing that you will look back on with joy. We love you guys. Can't believe that Caleb will be here so soon!
