Group hugs for the win! Here is Apple Jack (technically not a turtle but super cute nonetheless..), Leonardo, and Raphael in a warm embrace. “Look mama! They’re huggin!”.
Lucas: We are leaving to the Dominican Republic in less than 2 weeks and I can’t wait to see you strolling the island with your papi. That sweet, sun-kissed skin will be perfect for mama kisses!
Bebe: We are 25 weeks and you are the size of rutabaga (I had to look that one up..). Your kicks are getting stronger and we can now see my belly jump when you wiggle around.
Lucas: You are just as excited as I am for the warm weather. As we walked to the bus today in just our sweaters you said “it’s so warm!” with the biggest smile.
Bebe: 6 months this week. The time is flying by mi niña. I have a sonogram scheduled tomorrow and I’m so excited I get to see you my love!
It’s Monday and I’m still smiling – thinking of our lovely Easter day spent with family. We had a very low key morning. Bacon, egg, and cheeses with iced coffee for breakfast and cartoons. My mom came over and while Ivan and Lucas played we quickly hid eggs and treats around the apartment. Lucas was thrilled and I caught some amazing and hysterical video footage (I’ll be sharing egg photos tomorrow ;). After the hunt the boys took a nap, I tidied up, and got things ready for our adventure to Brooklyn. We had a late lunch/dinner of sancocho with family and finished off the evening with strawberry shortcake. Perfection.
I went to bed with a full heart, a happy soul, and thanking God for all our blessings. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
Lucas: We had an amazing week – complete with a movie date to see home. You have been repeating movie lines and telling everyone the knock-knock interrupting cow joke. “Mooooooo!”
Bebe: Daddy and I have been thinking of the perfect middle name for you my little one.
The park! Sunshine! Yesterday was glorious. And by glorious I mean amazing. And by amazing I mean Lucas was shouting “I’m the king of the world” on repeat while running and back and forth from the slide to the jungle gym. It was clear that we have been cooped up for months and this little guy was ready to stretch those legs and play. Also, this jacket? Lucas’s new fave. He says “it’s beautiful” and I couldn’t agree more! His harem pants are from last season and I love them more and more with each wear.
You can see more photos and details over on Babiekins. xx
A few shots my love snapped of me at 21 weeks. I’m wearing the most comfy dress ever. I’m kind of obsessed with it and I’m looking forward to warm days where I can slip it on and go. It’s linen. It’s soft. It’s perfect. I promise more style and dress the bump posts as soon as a coat is no longer necessary – I have boycotted photos with my winter jacket!
I’m officially 22 weeks today. Little miss is the size of a spaghetti squash and is super wiggly and I swear she jumps around at the sound of Lucas’s voice (he’s pretty loud, ya’ll). When that happens it stops me in my tracks and I daydream for a minute of all the fun they are going to have together. Pretty damn awesome. My duo!
