It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I really have to get better at blogging! Chad and I, quite honestly, forget to update folks and take pictures of the happenings at the Arnold household. I really will *try* to blog more frequently.
I'm 27 weeks now! In the 3rd trimester and really feeling great. Adaline is moving all over the place. Its a wonderful feeling and i love that Chad has been able to see and feel her move. Willis likes to cuddle with the belly as well, and I think he is ready to see Adaline and snuggle with her outside of the womb. :)
Here are some pictures of the 27 week belly:

We had my first midwife appointment with Aliza at Denver Health. I love her! I love how encouraging she is about labor and delivery. The appointment really felt joyous as Aliza felt Adaline move around. She appeared excited and affirmed my joy as well. Our next appointment is on May 29th, and I can't wait.
I also wanted to show some pictures of the nursery. We have put up the tree, the mobile, and the chifferobe. It is all coming together!

Other happenings:
*We plan to plant some shrubs and flowers this weekend. We *should* be out of the freeze time, but you never know (considering that it SNOWED last night and this morning..on May 12). Pictures to come. :)
*We saw Iron Man 2 this weekend...and loved it! Although I love going to movies, it is becoming harder on my body to sit for that long.
*Chad and I are volunteering for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at the Denver Arts Festival over Memorial Day weekend! I am super pumped to help this amazing volunteer health organization. I am also volunteering at the Mudapalooza Volleyball Tournament in June. I'll be handing out and checking the drink tickets. Should be a good time!

I guess that's it for now! We have had a low key couple of weeks, which is nice.

I'm off to devour a few cupcakes that I made last night. I've been baking like crazy lately. Is that part of nesting or is it just the belly wanting cookies and cupcakes? Either way, I will never turn down a tasty baked good.
