So as you can see there were a ton of kids, teens/tweens, and parents.
Just about all of the kids from his school came, and fun was had by all.
Even the parents!!! Which is really nice. We have a very unique pool. The shallow end is 3ft and the deep end is 4ft, so it's the perfect kid pool and a very relaxing parent pool.
Mary joined us,
and so did Joey.
And of course here is the boy himself.
He actually asked to have a party for all of his friends this year. I was really proud of him for thinking to do this. I hope he continues to be considerate of others.
And finally a quick pregnancy update. I have not had a lot of time to blog over the last couple months, but I don't want to neglect talking about this poor baby before its born. So, pregnancy number two has already started out pretty different from Quinn. Number 1, and I think I mentioned this already, this baby was much more planned than Quinn, and number 2, unlike with Quinn, I knew before I even missed my period I was pregnant. For a couple of days before it was due to come I felt like I had the flu, not full on awful flu, but I was achy and disconnected. For the first three months I had that low level nausea, but as long as I had food in my stomach I was all good (thus the 20 pounds I gained in the first three months, sigh). I've also been a little more tired with this one, however, the PhD program is much more intense than the masters program, and of course I have Quinn, so it's not like I can just nap whenever I want to. All this being said, this pregnancy has been good as well, nothing compares to the dream pregnancy I had with Quinn, however I can't complain about this one either. Like I said, as long as I ate I felt good, and I feel really good now. So, so far good and different, which I'm hoping means that everything is going well with this baby. We will find out on the 24th how everything is going. We have a level two ultrasound and fetal echo cardiogram scheduled that will show us in detail all of the inner workings of this baby. So......I'll keep you all posted. And at some point I will put up pictures of my already huge belly, another sigh!!! :)
