Third Pregnancy :: Week 31

Third Pregnancy : Week 31

Let me start out by saying that I’m writing this post from my lovely room in Maui, so life is good! I miss the girls a TON, but I’ve enjoyed every moment of relaxation, spontaneity, and rest.  And check out the view from our room…

Travis and I have loved our time together and it’s nice to be reminded every once in a while how special our relationship is as a couple – our dynamic as a family is something we would never trade, but our love and enjoyment of each other as individuals is just as great (and goofy) as ever.  We are very lucky to have each other.

Overall, I’ve been feeling pretty good. Travis and I have worked out all but one of the days we’ve been here (go us!), we’ve cooked most of our meals in our room, and we’ve enjoyed our fair share of sun (probably too much sun on our fair skin).  Caroline has definitely been growing like a weed and her movements are more prominent by the day. She’s feeling BIG. So fun!

And as wonderful as vacation is, I am so excited to be reunited with my girls in a couple days. Thank goodness for Skype and FaceTime!

Before we head home, however, we’re flying back to Oakland and heading straight to Napa for a special work event for “Top Guns” in Travis’ office (it’s a BIG deal – I’m very, very proud of him!).  With a couple days to look forward to in Napa, I don’t think I have much to complain about at all!

Ok…now onto the other stuff…
