Boo on the zoo and a Bella-ism too

Since I'm no longer on bed rest, today the whole crew headed to the zoo. It was a beautiful sunny day, but not too warm, which made it perfect for a preggo like me. We met up with some wonderful homeschooling moms while we were there. Between us there were 5 moms, 4 strollers, a wagon, and I think more than 20 kids!!! Wow! They are all such awesome kids though that it was very enjoyable, and it's always nice to get some time to chat with other grown ups. I had high hopes that walking so much would at least get some good contractions going, but that didn't happen. We were there for over 3 hours and I didn't have one single contraction! All I got were super sore hips and swollen feet. Booo! It was still a nice day though, and felt great to get out and about for a bit.

Now, on to the Bella-ism. Genna was pushing Nahshon in the stroller and Jeremy joked with her asking if she would push mom if mom got too tired. Genna politely replied that she thought mom was a bit too heavy with baby Micaiah in her tummy. Bella then piped up and said "and mom's got a big butt! BOOM! BOOM! Maybe you should just name the baby butter" Gee, thanks sweetie. (I rarely even eat butter by the way!) Good ol' Bella.

Great to see you and great to meet your hubby too! I'm sorry to hear about the lack of contractions.
