better late than never....

well hello there! do you remember me? i don't blame you if you don't ..... after all i have unexpectedly gone missing for most of the summer so far. we are currently TWO weeks away (or less) from luciana's arrival! she and mommy are hanging in there! i've been contracting daily for the last two months, have had several trips to labor & delivery, and have been dialated 2cm for the last three appointments! but, the end is near! we just can't wait to lay our eyes on our sweet girl.
I've received several emails from fellow bloggers wondering how we're doing and reminders from family to please update. so for anybody out there still reading here is a quick summer update in photos:
we completed our second season of t-ball. greyson absolutely had the best time playing this year and he has gotten SO good! just look at those grass stains to prove it. lol!
greyson's very first trophy!!
after dinner out one evening. have i mentioned our boy loves to eat out?
yeah, about every other night he makes a request that goes something like this....
"how 'bout we go out to eat tonight?" followed by at least 3-4 of his favorite places to eat! lol
a little bumper car action at a local carnival. pretty sure a sticky yummy ice cream cone quickly followed this ride.
on the boardwalk at the beach and hitching a ride on daddy's back, love that smile!
I have been a complete mess lately over "our time" coming to an end soon. every wednesday we have had a special greyson & mommy morning to the movies. this week i found myself looking over and staring at him, while he watched alvin and the chipmunks while tears slowing ran down my cheeks. it's hard to imagine the days ahead where it's no longer just him and me. four and a half years is a long time for an "only" and it really saddens me that time & love will be divided, although i truly know with my whole heart that this is one of the best gifts we can give him. the gift of a sibling. hormones, right?
I have wanted to take a shot like this for awhile now and had jim take several yesterday. i ran some actions on it in photo shop and absolutely love how it turned out. thinking i may frame this in our master bath.
and last but not least, here's a belly shot taken this morning at a ripe 38 weeks 1 day!
OMgoodness, can we really be that close? :)
