Whats in My Photos #3

The last few weeks in photos...
things you can infer from these photos...
1. It's obviously summer time!!! Hooray for warm weather (70s in the day, 40-50s at night)
2. We spend a lot of time outside... See number 1. 

Matt riding Oakie with two kelpies in tow...

Two of my favorite people in the whole world.

I think he was telling me about the herd of mule deer we saw climb the hill

Hang ten horseback style bra....

It was a beautiful day!

A crocheted pony from a friend in Florida! Too cute!!! Baby peaches is gonna love it!

Matt and his buddy working the ground at our first calf heifer branding 

Some concerned mommas watching mr Matt...

This belly is still a growing!!!

Matt moving heifers.... A loooooooong line of them!

We might have grass.... But the water is another story!

A baby quilt I made for my friends little girl Vivienne... Hence the "v"

Sneak peak of baby peaches nursery

the pinterest inspired pallet bookshelves i made for baby peaches nursery

My handsome man waiting to be released after I MADE him go to the E.R..... Long story short, he is gonna be just fine - thanks be to god. 

Just a horse pancake...

Oatmeal cookies + this man = one awesome night!

The wild flowers mr Matt picked me on our mineral/salt distributing adventure

Bronc #1 - the colt, Sundre Dash to Par, aka Chip.
Just a young fella, Matt will get him sorted out.

Bronc #2 - the palamino, Streaking Hornet, aka yellow fellow.
He lives up to his name as he is fast, but he bucks better than he runs. 

Matt moving pairs to water

The pineapple plant I'm growing for my grandma :) (if it works...However it already has roots which is very exciting!)

Matt's adventures of building and fixing fence sure do bring back some good pics! 

chloes green eye - she gets ulcers on her cornea and needs bandage contact lenses in order for them to heal.  However, its quite hard to tell if they are in her eye or not, so we dye them green.  Then she looks pretty awesome...

the 9 month mark has been hit!!! 30 day countdown!

matt on Sheeps Bridge... a bridge used by peruvian sheep herders to get their herd across the Big Wood River.... and they used to ride their horses across this thing!!!!

matt didnt let me get too far out on the bridge....

this is why... and this was one of the better parts of the bridge! :)

it was quite the adventure

this is how pregnant women fix fence... and wow you can see my love handles....

That's it for now folks....
What's it your pictures?!

32 Weeks (so its really 35 weeks...)

32 Weeks: 8 Months!!!
(Month 8 is Weeks 32-35)
Baby will be here less than 40 days!!!

i didnt think i could get much bigger... i was wrong.. so wrong... apparently this belly can still GROW!

wow.... quite the change in just 7 short months!

How Far Along: 35 weeks exactly - Less than 40 days till baby peaches due date!
Weight Gain/Loss: +8lbs more, total gain of 39lbs, totaling 163lbs.
I weigh over 160 lbs!!!!  Man oh man...
It is sooo weird to be this big... I'm looking forward to getting back into shape!
It quite amazing how much a woman's body can change to accommodate the little life it grows!
I never imagined being this heavy, being this stretched, growing this much...
I know i can get back to the shape i was before little peaches came along... itll just take a little work.
Ok, maybe a lot of work.  
Maternity Clothes: Yes!  I still can wear some of my pre-baby shirts but my belly hangs out the bottom a bit!  I wear nothing but maternity pants, and even those are uncomfortable at times... This is one big belly!
Sleep:  Sleep has been hard to find lately as i have horrible neck aches while sleeping.  I feel like its actually caused by my snoogle, which is terribly sad as i love my snoogle.  If i sleep with a normal pillow under my head, my neck feels better, but i dont sleep well without something in between my knees and around my back.  And if i pull out the snoogle so i have all that, i get a neck ache.  Decisions decisions... Only a few more weeks of sleeping while pregnant!
Best Moment This Week/Month: Knowing that baby is head down!  It doesnt necessarily mean baby is coming soon, but at least peaches is in the right position for when it does come!
Miss Anything: I miss being really active... running around with the dogs, riding horses, taking hikes in the hills.  But soon we can start doing all that again with a new little buddy in tow! 
Movement:  Baby doesnt roll around very much, but it stretches out and is now kicking me in the ribs!  But i can feel its cute little butt when it stretches out  :)  sooo fun. 
Food Craving:  I feel like im always thirsty or craving fruit!  I really wish there was a smoothie shop closer than 75 miles away! 
Showing:  Naw...not really. HAH!
Gender Prediction:  I still have no gut feeling of what this little baby is... but I'm sure excited to find out! Either way baby is going to be sooo wonderful!!!  It is so loved already!
Labor Signs:  I get contractions when i push my self a little too hard... but im always able to sit down, drink some water and they go away.  However, Matt and the Dr decided i cant do that anymore, so im more limited on what i can do now.  So i am baking a lot, as that doesnt require much exertion!  
Belly Button: Out... it can officially be seen through my shirt .... eek....  
Wedding Ring: On.  Still no swelling! Im a lucky gal!
Mood:  So excited! The babys nursery is almost done, im able to keep up on housework so its staying nice and clean, i have many freezer meals prepared (including 12 dozen cookies!), and the baby is going to make its appearance soon!!!  How can i not be excited!?!
Weekly Wisdom:  None really... i just cant wait to meet baby peaches!!!! :) 

Side Notes:
After taking pictures of our little pineapple, we feasted on the juicy sweetness that it was!
mmmmmmmm, fresh pineapple is so yummy!
We ate the whole thing in one sitting.
And im trying my hand at turning the top of the pineapple into a pineapple bush! :)
I hope it works - im sure excited to give it to my grandma if it survives my lack of a green thumb!

Matt sure loves my quick shutter speed... he just keeps snapping away :)
SO ... of course, i have to keep making ridiculous poses.
Such as this.
