First of all, let me start by saying: I’m so sorry for slacking! I literally turned around and nearly a month is gone since our last belly post and Week 18 is still on the chalkboard (for the last evening, I promise!). I honestly don’t know where this weeks have gone. There’s been so much going on, both at work and home, I haven’t had a moment to think about writing and the guilt as sunken in.
Ok, so we’re at week 22! Week 20 was celebrated by dipping my toes in the Atlantic Ocean in Atlantic City, NJ while I was there for a conference. The weather was crappy all week long, but it cleared up enough that I could get out Thursday afternoon for a few minutes.
I also found these cute All Stars at the outlets while I was there. I couldn’t wait to get home and show Dan.
Last weekend we celebrated Mother’s Day at Dan’s parents. The weekend weather was a bit finicky, but Sunday ended up being really nice. I came down to find a slew of presents on the table from my boys (Dan, Murray & Theo 🙂 ) It was such a beautiful day and such an amazing reminder of what is right around the corner for us. We can’t wait to celebrate next year with our little boy!
Here’s my updates for week 21:
