Pregnancy Progression and Updates

I'm 35 weeks and 3 days and I've been thinking a lot over the last few days about the growth of this little life inside of my belly! Tomorrow we have an ultrasound because the doctor feels the baby is smaller than my dates, so I started gathering all my belly pics to check out my growth. And, why not share with everyone...(on the blog I'm terrible at updating, sorry). So here are the photos I have of my ever growing belly, I sure don't feel small!

19 Weeks
23 Weeks
27 Weeks

30 Weeks

35 Weeks

Even though I'm a terrible blogger I'll update tomorrow after our ultrasound, if the tech tells us how the baby Kinley is growing!

A few more updates from our family...I graduated with my Masters in Elementary Education, had to give a speech and go through two graduations. I've applied for every elementary teaching job in Arizona and I've had one interview so far. I'm hoping to hear more in the upcoming weeks. We spent most of May in Washington, my mom, Aunt Diane, Jaelyn and I drove from Phoenix to Kent in the beginning of May. Marc came during the middle of May and then drove home with us at the end of May. While we were in May we had an opportunity to spend time with lots of family and friends. It was a wonderful 3 weeks, but it went by so fast! I was lucky enough to be there when one of my best friends, Brooke, had baby Colin. I enjoyed being there and spending time with them before and after birth! I was thrown a beautiful baby shower for baby Kinley by Merissa and her mom! It was so fun celebrating with old friends, the whole thing made me feel so special! We also were able to drive up and spend a night with Marc's brother Tim and his girlfriend Jenn, we spent a lot of time at the beach, which was Jaelyn's first time!

Jaelyn is still doing great with potty training, she had so much fun in Washington hanging out with her cousins, aunties and uncles, and grama and bapa! Since we've been back she has been going to daycare every Tuesday and Thursday and is slowly getting used to her new schedule. I love that she gets that social time and mommy gets a couple days to get stuff done (or relax). She's getting so big and growing so fast, she is talking in sentences and makes us laugh everyday. She LOVES Dora right now and is still overly obsessed with her bunny! I could go on and on but I don't know where to begin and where to end...I'll just try to do better with the updates!

Marc is done traveling and it has been great having him be home so much. He's still working away at getting his Masters degree and is in the middle of his third class. He just got his wisdom teeth removed on Friday, but is doing awesome with recovery and I would say he's almost back to normal! Our good friends Andy and Mary Ellen, expecting August 12, just moved to Phoenix and we couldn't be happier. It's like having family here and it's so nice to have them a short car ride away. We've been spending a lot of time with them and look forward to having our kids grow up together!

Alright, I can't think of anything else right now! Good night!


  1. Awesome update. I am loving all this road tripping! :-) And for the record, you look right on track with baby Kinley to me! My Dr. make me to ultrasound after ultrasound b/c I meaured small with Natalie and she turned out to be 7 lbs. 9 oz. when she was born... Just my two cents that I hope encourages you. You look beautiful!

  2. I think you look great! Can't wait to see you guys. We miss and love you.
