Where did May go??


So, here is our last month in a nutshell.....

We spent a wonderful Mother's Day weekend in the Hill Country.

We went to Pedernales Falls State Park for a few hours one day. Mabry LOVES being in the river and throwing rocks!




We have ripped our Master Bathroom apart and Andy is in the process of remodeling it. Did, I mention that our baby is due in less than 3 weeks??:) We are crazy, but figure if we don't get the bathroom done now it will be another year before anything productive gets done once the baby arrives. Let's just hope our baby doesn't decide to make an early appearance!
We spent a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend in Longview with lots of the Hoelzle clan. We had a great time being together and Mabry LOVED playing with her cousins.
Here are some pics from our Memorial Day Weekend

Mabry and Caden taking a walk together.:)

Mabry's first fishing experience.
Definitely Daddy's little outdoor gal.

The cousins singing songs and learning sign language from Uncle Braden. Later they went back into the entryway and just sat in their chairs laughing and screaming as loud as they could. So much fun!



Mabry and her Great-Grandmother Hoelzle. Priceless.


In other news.....

Here are a couple of belly pics around 35 weeks I think.....




This was a couple of weeks ago so I have probably had sufficient growth since then but we haven't done a good job of taking belly pics this time around. Hopefully, I'll get some new ones soon.;)

I saw the baby on ultrasound today because my midwives wanted to make sure she was head-down. So precious! I have never had an ultrasound this far along and it was like taking a sneak peak at our little angel. Wait, it wasn't "like" that, it WAS that! Anyway, her eyes were open looking right at me and she was smacking her sweet lips. So priceless. Getting excited about meeting our sweet baby girl!! Now, if only we could pick a name!

Mabry is starting to get excited about baby sister coming. She keeps saying that baby sister is going to come soon and go to the park with her.:) I love it when she puts her hand on my belly and talks to her little sis. So sweet. Mabry is getting to be so grown up and it makes me a little sad that she won't be our "baby" anymore but I am so excited for her to experience the joy in life that comes from having a sibling.


A couple of shots of Mabry that Andy took recently.....

The last interesting fact I have for now is that Mabry just fell asleep for her nap by herself for the first time ever! Wow! She must know she is about to get "de-throned" as Andy would say so she has to learn to be a big girl. Now I think I'll go snuggle with her while I still can.........

Mabry is a doll! You look great - I can't believe it's just a few weeks until baby sister gets here, wow! I can't wait to hear her name and see pictures. I remember being very emotional right before I had #2...it was hard to imagine Elijah NOT being my baby anymore.

I think the time goes by faster when you're pregnant...I feel like our little girl will be here so soon. You look like you're carrying low...sure it's a girl? ;) Maybe she's already dropped?!? Those last few pictures of Mabry are so precious, and that is great that she's going to sleep on her own!! Can't wait to hear the news of your new little one!!

What an adorable niece I have! The pics Andy took are too precious! We've been super busy trying to get the house on the market and finish all the birth prep. stuff too. We sure enjoyed our time with y'all in Longview. We'll be looking forward to hearing baby news soon.
Love to all!

Seriously, Addie. You need to contact a modeling agency for that girl. She can surely rake in the bucks for you, right?? With a commercial here, and a promo there, you'll be able to pay for your bath remodel in no time! :) She is the most beautiful little girl.

You look great too. I can't wait to hear about The Little Venables's arrival!

Rebekah said...

Wow...Great pictures! I'm just so excited for y'all and can't wait to meet the next Venables angel!

Addie you look great! Praying for you in these last few weeks. God is good!

Little Mabry is so adorable. I'm so glad that she's Daddy's fishing partner too! You look great- we're praying for a safe birth for the next little Venable!
