Just for kicks…

I’m totally wiped out. It’s 9:29 and I feel like it’s 1:29 am! Anyway, “Mom” and “Mimi” left this afternoon for the beach to visit with Erika for a few days. I’d be totally sad and depressed if I didn’t know for a fact they’re coming back in a few days! Yea! Justin got home tonight from a 3 day jaunt to Tallahassee on an “interior design installation” with Erika at a house she just finished up. We keep teasing him and telling him what a great interior designer he could be… he’d have to change his voice, lose his work boots and wear tighter clothes.

Here are some pictures over the course of the last few days. And a few baby boy shots (for you Shireen!). Cousin is back in the Windy City and I miss her like crazy. She’s one of my most precious friends and I hate that we can’t be closer. Despite nasty weather we had so much fun and I made her PROMISE me that she’d come back again soon! Anyway, here are few pictures from our time together…

Darby, Cousin, & Erika (w/a Bays English Muffin) This is not a good picture but oh well. It was at 7 am and yes, I do have on my CAL Alumni sweatshirt!! Can any of you all believe I still have it, let alone wear it!? Ha ha!

Morgan, Cousin , and Paige

Paige LOVES Cousin!

Morgan loves “Bird Brown, PhD” (aka- Professor) Have you ever heard of such a name? Only Erika!

Mimi (Elizabeth) and Paige (Elizabeth) Paige also loves Mimi and has been sleeping with her since she got here!

Mimi & Paige again

1, 2, & 3 (& tired Mama)… should I be alarmed that I still have 14 weeks to go!?

Morgan giving “Kevin” sugar…. she named him “Kevin”… it’s been made clear to her that this is just his “pretend” name.

Last but not least, my very thoughtful husband brought me home a special treat. I couldn’t have done better myself… thanks, Justin! I love you!

    I am so glad to finally see your little bulge 🙂 I am going to submit a recipe if it kills me. It seems like every time I sit down to do it I get distracted.

    Thank you! 🙂 You look so great pregnant! You really do! Gosh, I hope to look so cutesy! 🙂 Thank you for posting the pictures. I can tell that Cousin has a sweet and maybe even relaxing demeanor (?) just by her pics!
    Hey, I’ve been praying about coming down! Russell has drill (nat’l guard duty) May 3rd & 4th (Sat. thru Sun. evening)!! I’ll email you, too, but pray and see if that works for me to maybe come down for a visit! Anything will work! A day trip on Saturday or overnight from Sat. to Sunday morning or afternoon…whatever works for YOU guys!
    I’m looking forward to emailing you back, too. Work’s been very busy! In a great way. 🙂 I enJOY staying busy!
    Well, girl, get some rest!! You’ve got a mission trip comin’ up, and you’ll need full energy for that!
    Love you,

    Darby you look great! I am so glad that you have had wonderful visits with family. And don’t worry if you haven’t named your little guy….Zach and I didn’t agree until 3 days before Caleb was born. Names are so hard and alot of responsibility! Love all the pics 🙂

    How did I miss that you were pregnant? I guess I’m new here. So nice of your hubby to bring home some shoes…isn’t he sweet?! My hubby does the same from time to time but they are usually in the form of stilettos! They are really for himself.

    That is just about the cutest bump I’ve ever seen! I was thinking about you the other day and realized this will be the first time I probably won’t get to see you pregnant – there are no more Browns to be bridesmaids for!! Maybe if I come to Dothan to see little Knox we can make a detour! Oh, and your bow tutorial made my fingers itch to be crafty…my niece may be getting a box full of bows if a few weeks!

    Ok, I probably don’t know you well enough to say this, but I’m going to anyway. You are such a cute pregnant girl w/your little bump!

    Also, my SIL is pregnant and her 4 year old daughter calls the baby Abigail and/or Abby Grace. She was not happy when she was told the baby was going to be named Jenna. 🙂

    LOVE that baby bump! you look awesome!
