Tea Party - Take Two

Tea was such a success last week that we decided to go all out and do a REAL tea party with the girls.  I woke up on Sunday at 6:30am to get myself up to the Bronx to meet the family.

This was a big day for the girls because it was their first time taking a subway in the city!  During our ride from the Bronx to 72nd street they got to witness two subway preachers and a flute player.  The girls gave him some change because they enjoyed the music.

Tea anyone?

B and I went up to the Bronx today to spend the day with my sister, my father, and my two nieces.  The day was off to a perfect start.  It was in the 70's and we met with the family at the Van Cortland Park to play Frisbee and to run around with the girls.  After that, we went back to T's apartment for a tea party!  The nieces decided the menu which included Tea, fruit punch (aka fruit punched by B), donuts (chocolate and powdered), fig newtons, marshmallows and ice-cream sundaes.

After tea, we retreated to T's bedroom and the nieces decided that we needed to put on a performance.  We got dressed up and did a little dance for Dad and B.  It was a lot of fun.  Thanks everyone for a great day!

Baby Bump - 27 weeks

I'm feeling pretty proud of myself right now!  B took this picture of me this morning and it's already up!  No two week delay for a change.

Now to compare.  Below is my belly at 19 weeks.

And my belly below is at 27 weeks.

Baby Bump - 25 weeks

OK, so I am 2 weeks behind again in posting pictures of my belly.  Here are two from week 25 (I am now week 27).

This is what I see when I look down at my tummy.  I feel like I'm huge, but I guess other people think I look like a normal 25 week pregnant woman.

Here I am how everyone else sees me.  Ignore the poor lighting.  B and I were in Jamaica and getting ready to go out for dinner.

And here is B.  He wants to show off his Belly too!

Eating for two

I have been making a huge effort to eat healthier for the last 27 weeks.  While I have been doing fairly well with this, it is sometimes not the easiest thing to do, particularly when I'm tired.  Tonight, B planned a lovely dinner for us.  We had herb breaded tilapia, oven baked sweet potatoes, and corn bread muffins.  It was all super tasty!  Thanks so much B for making me and our little batman a healthy dinner!

Mmmm, herb breaded tilapia!!! TASTY!

Which was even better because we ate it on the porch on this fine 68 degree evening!

And even though B isn't a huge fan of fish, he was also happy with his meal and the setting.

Interesting to me, maybe not to you.

I find it interesting that when I am very active the baby likes to settle very high in my belly.  However, when I am being super lazy or sedentary she sits real low.  I wonder why that is.  Is she like sugar in a cup of water that floats to the top when you stir it up and sinks to the bottom when you let is sit?
