24 weeks & finger painting

Hello out there! Does anyone out there have about 3 hours & 25% energy they could share with me? If I had both, I may just get around to updating this thing more often...anywho. Tomorrow I will be 25 weeks along, so I thought I should share my 24 week preggo picture with ya.

Not sure if you can see it in the pic, but last week I got my hair highlighted! I love it. I haven't put any color in my hair in almost 2 years. I thought I would just let the pretty silver give me those "natural" highlights, but I just really needed something more. With a quick trim & a little bit of blond, I feel so much better about my image. I do love being pregnant, but I am already starting to feel like a whale! I had a quick check-up on Monday & my mid-wife says Boo is doing great. We are measuring right where we should be so they are still not concerned with gestational diabetes. However, I will be taking another glucose test on May 5th. Please keep that in prayer, may the Lord's will be done. For now, both Cam & I are committed to leading healthier lives. It's been great to eat healthier together, the support is just what we both need. I have been enjoying my walks in the mornings with the girls (however pushing 60+ pounds can be a bit challenging on the hills) & Cam gets to go running in the evenings. Prayerfully we will continue to find strength with His help & keep up this healthier lifestyle, we know it will be good for the whole family.

Here are a few more pictures for your enjoyment:

On Tuesday the girls & I got to spend the day with our good friends, Brandi, Emma & Miley.
These pics are of the older girls doing some finger painting.

I am still editing photos from Easter & Caylee's birthday (not her party, but her actual birthday). I'll share again soon, I promise!

You look fabulous! I love your hair, and that belly is looking so cute! Good job trying to eat healthier and exercising--it's tough with little ones and not very much energy.
