Micah coming in only 1 week at 2 days! Yowza!

The final count down! I can hear the back ground music playing as the end approaches.
My emotions are mixed, part of me wants him to stay safe in Mommy's belly, the other part of me wants him to ease up off my aching body parts!
Above and beyond any ache or pain, is the excitement to meet and to hold and to smell, this pudgy cheeked little angel!

I am finding that I am super sensitive, and snuggly right now. I want what I want when I want it, but really I dont want much.

I love time with my family and holding little Taylor in my arms. Can't wait for him to meet his uncle!

Life is good, and it makes me sad when people around me, dont appreciate or see the beauty that surrounds us! It is everywhere just inhale it!

I feel overwhelmed with baby joy, as my beautiful family grows:) Awwww this is the good life:)

500 year old diaper

Did you know diapers take 500 years to decompose in a landfill, gross!
I began the hunt for a good reusable diaper, or biodegradable one, and came across g-diapers. 

Anyone tried these? They are pricey suckers, I just ordered a big start up set and found someone on Craigslist selling their lightly used UNSTAINED ones for only 50 bucks for like 12 pieces of newborn size.. Good deal. Finding diapers you love shouldn't be this hard. Will update you all on how the g-diapers are.

Loving Life as Lola

Taylor Leland Beck
Lola's beautiful baby boy is here!! He is going to be a month old soon! He is absolutely precious! The young parents are doing well, and SheAnna is feeling much better.
Taylor likes to sleep and eat and he makes the funniest little faces! He is a total suggle bug and I love nothing more than to just snuggle with him. He likes to sit with my on my patio, while the birds chirp and I sing him a song:)

He is such a blessing! Micah is going to just love his little nephew!

Pregnant Capoerista- Batizado Time! 8 months pregz

Despite my aches and pains, allowing my body to move, actually feels good. It is the slow movements, or the resting that hurts the most! Can you believe my most painful time of day is at night when I lay down. Suddenly I can feel every aching part of my body and it is miserable! My Rico, is so wonderful to me, he just wants to "fix" it. He does everything he can, only to end up going to sleep feeling defeated by my back aches, but his trying, sure is the sweetest thing ever. Our capoeira group is having our Batizado this week.

All throughout pregnancy, I have trained sporadically and continued to play when I can, at home or in the park.
Last time I played in front of a group, people came up to me after wards to shake my hand and tell me how amazing it was to see someone sooo pregnant, train. I didn't realize it was soo unusual..
I felt amazing.

Even with my belly semi in my way of some of my favorite kicks:)
I got news today, that I have the green light to attend all Batizado festivities!
I am ecstatic, but I am not expecting too much of myself.

The bottom line is,
I am going to take it really easy. If I can't do a thing, I will just face that I can't do the thing! Respect my body Listen to my body Hope Micah is in the belly enjoying the drums and movements.

AND if he does decide to pop out during the festivities, well then it will be the most special Batizado ever:)
