Beach Trip Part Duex

We have been home for a couple of weeks now. The children's rooms have been switched, and painted and a quilt has been started... And even though my to -do list is long, it's "do-able" is that a word? In other words I feel no stress about completing it. I need to switch the closets, and paint a vintage armoire... I will post a picture of the piece I just picked up a couple of days ago, I am excited to see the transformation. It is so girly!

Lauren's room, {we have been calling her that, it seems to fit} is PINK and that's an understatement, I still like the color, but without curtains and bedding and the armoire, it is a bit overwhelming. I am still in love with the color, I just can't wait to see everything together. Ryan is obsessed with everything Beach related, so we are working on a beach themed room for him...

And without further adieu Here is the last of the favorites from our recent Watson family vacation.

The mornings were a bit cold, but it warmed up quickly by noon..

Silly Ryan... When I would ask him to smile, he did this, I have no idea where he got it!


Happy Boy

Tennis Lessons (He is a natural!)

Mr Watson- I can't wait until I can play a round with him or should I say keep up with him!

I am so glad we went on this trip, It really gave me time to realise what is important. Enjoy your family, take it easy, stress is overrated, pray and meditate often, marvel in the beauty around you.. and many many more.

Until next time!

Watson Family Beach Trip

We had such a relaxing time on out trip to Laguna Beach. It was just the three of us, and we did whatever we wanted. We brought Ryan his scooter, because we took many long walks at the Montage Resort{it's next door to the beach house} It over looks the ocean and is so beautiful.

We went over to Balboa Island one day for a stroll on the Pier and we saw this bird... Isn't it Pretty? We also saw a dead bottle nosed dolphin, but I doubt you want to see a picture of that!

On the rocks down the beach, my boys went exploring in the many tide pools.

There is a sea wall right on our beach and Ryan loved walking along it watching the waves..

Our Family on a morning walk at the Montage.
On Friday it was warmer then it looked, because poor Ryan got burned.. Jamie went golfing and we spent the entire day at the beach digging and making sand castles. We paid for it for two days because I got burned too!
I have one more beach post... Its not so bad being home, I have lots to do to get ready for we think {Lauren Elle Watson} We will have to see...

Isn't it gorgeous?

6 Months and Counting

Almost 29 weeks

{looking down the other day I was surprised I couldn't see my feet}
This Pregnancy has been wonderful, I feel like that now, however a few months ago I would have said otherwise...{as the sickness was overtaking me} I am now entering my 30th week with energy and excitement. I have an obvious baby bump, and I actually like it. I don't know if it is just because with a second pregnancy you are so much more relaxed... But the first time I remember feeling so stressed, and feeling so unattractive. This time I have come to terms with the changes, and know that I can't do much about it. I think also that because it took so long to conceive this baby, I am just happy to be having the experience.

{hello baby sister}
Ryan is excited for his Sister to get here. Not a day goes by that he doesn't talk to her, or rub my belly. I think it is sweet, he knows she is coming sometime close to his birthday, so he doesn't really ask me when she is coming, he knows she is still growing. {We were watching a movie one night this week, and I wasn't thinking about editing,the actress had a baby, and now Ryan knows where the baby comes out.} He reminds me daily that "the baby is coming out of your.......... right mom?" and he points. Some of you might think it is inappropriate, but I try not to lose sleep over it. At least its the truth right? I was so caught up in the beauty of birth that I completely forgot to cover his eyes or pause the movie. Why is it that pregnant women cry every time they see a birth? I cant help it I cry every time, its such a miracle.

{kick baby kick}
This week has been my downfall, Up to this point I have led a relatively healthy pregnancy. eating healthy, trying to walk, drinking tons of water. This past week I went to Cafe Rio 4 times... I had a Huge Diet Coke at each of these excursions. Its the honest truth, I made cookies twice, and helped plan a party with a Chocolate Fountain. I think I consumed over a half cup of pure Belgian Milk Chocolate. I started feeling more sluggish and swollen. So today I start over, back to normal I guess.. And back to feeling good.

{playing hide and seek}
Later this month I have another ultrasound scheduled. During the first one, the baby was so active and moving so much the technician couldn't get a good look at her heart. So I get to see my baby again. I am excited, I think ultrasounds are so much fun!

I had a pregnancy moment last week, I had bought this cute headband with a rather large vintage flower on the side. I felt like I needed some fun hair accessories. So I wore it on a date and Jamie HATED it. He told me so and continued to tell me that a huge black flower on his wives head was not cute! I didn't care because I really liked it, so I wore it proudly. Last weekend Jamie was teasing me and took it off my head and in the process broke it. It must have been hormones because I cried... Not a little cry..... a full on hysterical fest with splotchy cheeks and mascara running down my chin. He felt so bad to say the least that he insisted we go shopping immediately. I calmed down and came home with two new maternity outfits. I think I am happier with those then with the huge black flower headband. Definitely not one of my best pregnant moments. Poor Ryan thought daddy was so terrible for breaking Mommy's Head band, that he cried too! {he always has my back!}
Last weekend Jamie was in St George, so I took Ryan on a special date. We went to dinner and to see The Princess and the Frog, he kept saying how special our date was. During the movie he kept saying, this is a special movie Mommy. I think he was so happy to have a night out with just Mom. It was a great memory and he was such a fun date!
