So today I am 39 weeks pregnant with our little guy, Grayson John. I honestly never thought I would still be pregnant at this point, but he obviously has other ideas. :) I have had every pre-labor symptom in the book at this point, so now it's just a waiting game. We were planning for a VBAC, but if I don't go into labor on my own, we have a scheduled C-section for next Wednesday morning. I realized I have not been the best at updating about my pregnancy, so here is my attempt to catch up!
Rylie has loved being a part of Awana this year! She gets so excited when we tell her that she has Puggles that day. Her award ceremony was super cute and we got to see them sing some of the songs that they learned throughout the year.
Watching the rest of the ceremony.

Rylie seriously has the best Daddy in the world! This past weekend, we were just relaxing after church when he decided that it was time for them to make cookies together. She thought it was the greatest thing ever!
Since we held Rylie's birthday party a little bit early this year in case her little brother decided to make an appearance closer to her actual birthday, she was a little confused about what her birthday day meant. :) She got to open a present first thing in the morning (a tradition from Brandon's family that we have adopted) and then I had to go to work. That afternoon we headed to Lynn's house for Rylie to play with one of her best friends, Joshua. After a fun and water filled afternoon, we met my Grandparents and Mom and Famous Dave's for dinner (my dad was out of town).
A princess karaoke machine!
Time for some water fun!
Grammy, Rylie and Grandma
Golf clubs just like Daddy! (I love that she has Famous Dave's BBQ sauce all over her face in all of these pictures...she really likes this place!)
Rylie is super into all of the Disney Princesses right now, but Ariel is probably her favorite (though really? Why is every girl so obsessed with Ariel at some point? She is kind of just a spoiled little girl who disobeys her father and gets her way...just what I want to teach my daughter! :) ). We had already decided to hold her 3rd birthday party at the gym where I work, but instead of using the gym, we had a swim party at the indoor pool, so really the Ariel theme worked out perfectly.
We had fun naming all of the food with under the sea names...and yes, my husband is super creative and cut the pineapple into starfish. :)
The birthday girl with Ariel at Disneyland.
She was just a little excited!
All of the kids had a blast swimming (and I think some of the parents had some fun in the pool as well!) and Rylie could not stop smiling. :)
After swimming, Rylie got to put on her Ariel outfit and birthday crown. We had the kids do the pinata, opened gifts and cut the cake. It was so fun to watch Rylie's face throughout the party...she really could not stop smiling (and that translate to thanks Mom and Dad!). :)
Dancing with Mimi.
Rylie with her friends.
These 2 are the best of friends! Every event they are both at, at some point we can find them off by themselves just talking. :)
She thought it was pretty fun to have everyone looking at her and singing. :)
Rylie with her Grandma and Mimi...which Mommy is so thankful for all of their help with this party! They were even ready to throw it themselves if I happened to go into labor before it! :) (Gotta also love how they both colored coordinated with the party theme!)
Brandon and I got married in January of 2007...and added Wrigley to our family in February of 2008. Our most recent addition has been our daughter, Rylie who was born May 2, 2010. It's been a whirlwind! We love to relax and travel together. We hope you enjoy this look into our lives.
