Friday, B and I met The Carter's at the park. It was super windy but it felt so good to be out in the sun!
 For date night, we decided to do something a little different. 
We grabbed some lattes, walked through Powell's and relaxed over some dessert and appetizers at Mcmenamins. 
Probably our most relaxing/most needed date night ever. 
 this mocha marble cake was so good!
Saturday morning we met up with my mom at Bridgeport. 
We had a tasty lunch and B got to run off some energy on the little playgound:

Chris and I also made our first nursery purchase for little brother!
We had been eyeing this grey and white striped rug for a while and finally bit the bullet:

Saturday evening the Carters joined us for some park time. 
It was Avery's first time in a wagon and you'd think we were torturing her by the sound of her screams.
She finally warmed up to it once we were almost to the park! 
 best friends:
 Sunday morning Chris and I made a double batch of my favorite scones to take over to The Hartmanns.
(unfortunately, these scones give me heartburn like none other right now. Things like water and scones are giving me heartburn but fries and burgers are totally no big deal. I only got heartburn at the very end when I was pregnant with Bennett. So not fun.)
Baby Fern has grown so much since we last saw her two weeks ago!
B pretty much is in love with her and kept giving her sweet little kisses on the head. 
B has been choosing not to sleep at night and isn't really taking that great of naps anymore either. 
He has always been an amazing sleeper, 12 hours at night and 1.5-3 hour naps. 
Not anymore.
He has been functioning on virtually no sleep for two weeks. 
(as have Chris and I)
I would like my champion sleeper back please and thank you.
It's pretty obvious he is exhausted because he's been passing out in the car everyday.
If I've seen you lately and been grumpy or out of it, I'm so sorry!
(I don't handle lack of sleep very well, especially since little brother gives me swift kicks all night long and the heartburn is super uncomfortable when I lay down)
 Lastnight we went to take our bi-annual photobooth picture.
It's the first time that B has actually interacted and did the faces with us!
 Afterwards we went to church and heard yet another amazing teaching from John Mark.
He just started a new series on 'work' and it's exactly what I needed to hear, even as a SAHM.
Can't wait to hear the rest!

Happy Monday friends!

    Haha, I was like "what the heck is a SAHM?" Duh, I get it. And I will be one soon!

    Oh so sorry Bennett isn't sleeping!! You've been perfectly lovely and looking fabulous the last two Sundays I've gotten to see you. Seriously, I thought to myself-Oh I hope I can do pregnancy just as well! :)

    Your trio is so amazing at activities! I love it! Sorry that B has decided to sleep less-he is clearly a brilliant little boy and now realizes his brain works all hours of the day (and night...) :)
    Sorry about the heartburn but so glad that french fries make it better :) PS: Red Robin has the best ever...and they are refillable (that is just like God smiling).
    xoox, Anna

    B's still not sleeping? That stinker! We'll see if the on-your-best-behavior for the babysitter works again next week. Sounds exhausting...if you need me, you know where to find me! I will take him away for an afternoon so you can take a nap :)
