My growing BELLY...and changing HAIR...

Hilarious to me how these photos show not only my growing belly, but also the fact that since I have lived here in London, I have YET to have a perfect haircut! AAK! I must get this under control before baby arrives! lol ;)

my two favorites

Hey Friends -

So many have been requesting belly pictures - here are my two favorites from our San Fran babymoon :)

This one was a moment of creative genius on David's part - just baby and San Fran in the background - so cool!

And, this one was at the amazing California Academy of Sciences museum/aquarium - super fun place! We loved watching the kids exploring the animals around the museum - can't wait to do that with our little girl one day too :)

2) A final report from the ultrasound technician and radiologist was sent to my GP. My doctor did NOT tell me the gender. Instead, she wrote it on a card and sealed it in an envelope for me.

5) We hosted a party with our families on skype and local friends/family over at our place. In front of everyone, we cut into the cupcake (with the same cake cutter we used to slice our wedding cake) to discover - along with everyone else - that our baby is a .....

Off to San Francisco!


1) clean house, as we have a guest arriving the day we get back

2) take Jolie to the dog park for a last HURRAH with her before dropping her off at Holiday Farms kennel (sooooooo much guilt about this - I got her the BIGGEST dog treat to chew on while we're away: a deer antler!)

3) grab a bite to eat and finish packing

4) HIT THE AIRPORT! We're off for our babymoon!!!!!!!!!! Lots of love and romance before baby arrives :)

See you all when we get back (the 18th)
