Movement: Everyday I feel my sweet girl and I just LOVE it! Matt loves to feel her too and when she kicks, he points to where he felt it on my belly. I think he forgets I feel it even more from the inside! ha! I love that he gets to feel her so regularly now!
Sleep: As long as I have my pillows in the right spot, I am sleeping great!

Cravings: Just eating a lot of everything! The whole pregnancy I have eaten a lot of Special K cereal but now I am up to 2 times a day!
Best moment this week: Getting Preslee's closet organized with the help of my mom! I love to go in there and look at all her sweet things!
Yesterday, I helped host a baby shower for my good friend Emily! We are childhood friends and both live in NWA now and we are so excited to be pregnant together and due only 6 weeks apart!
Emily and Annabel at 32 weeks- Preslee and me at 26 weeks
Emily got so many cute things, including lots of cloth diapers! I love that we are such good friends but so different too... Emily- cloth diapers and no epidural... Me- Disposable diapers all the way and bring on the BIG needle with the drugs! Ha!
It was a Sunday afternoon shower so we just had a few light snacks! Cucumber sandwiches, hummus dip with carrots and pita chips, fruit salad, strawberry cupcakes and some really yummy punch!
The theme of the shower was a bicycle because Emily's husband loves to ride bikes. We had a cute antique bike outside my house with flowers in the front basket but I forgot to take pic!
Mommy-to-be with all the girls that hosted the shower! We had a great turnout and I think Emily really enjoyed her special day! Annabel is a very loved little girl already!
