Baby Name Poll

I just added a poll (on the top right) for everyone to vote on their favorite baby Dickson name. Devin and I can't come to a conclusion on our boy's name. We only have a couple more months to decide so I'm hoping the voting will help us in our decision.

Baby Stuff

Baby Update:
I am in the middle of my 31st week of pregnancy. I am still feeling great and I've been sleeping well, minus the leg cramps that are creeping up on me every now and then. My hips are generally sore when I wake up from the extra weight being put on them from sleeping on my sides. I've noticed that I've been alot more thirsty lately and I am hungry all the time. The weird thing is I will be so hungry but feel so full after barely eating much. So I have to frequently eat small meals which is alot harder than you'd think! At my doctors appointment last week I weighed in at my all time record of 123.5 lbs. The doctor said the baby was measuring right on target and his heartrate was strong. We are going back and forth between 3 names right now. Brody, Maddox, and Colton. It's such a hard decision! So far I'm loving the third trimester...I think the first trimester was the worst because of the nausea and vomiting, the second trimester was alright, after the first half of it, since I was still sick and had low energy, and the third trimester has it's discomfort with my growing belly, but I'd take these aches and pains anyday over nausea and vomiting! (I realize my opinion may change as I reach the 8th and 9th month of pregnancy!) The baby has been quite distracting with all of his judo chopping and kicking. I feel like he never stops moving! I can't believe there's only a couple more months left!

Learning to Photoshop

I love to photoshop pictures! I kept seeing cute edited photos on other friends blogs and so I asked Jonna how she did it and she told me the secret! It was so easy and I'm addicted!
Baby update:
I feel like my belly has reached its maximum stretching capabilities...can I really get any bigger? Today I began week 30 of the pregnancy which means about 8 weeks until I'm considered full term. I have been enjoying swimming a few days a week now that the weather has permitted it. I had to go back for the 3 hour glucose screening test last week...what a nightmare! They haven't called me so I'm assuming everything is okay. I have been working at my old job in Huntington Beach as the office manager just for a couple weeks while an employee is out of town. I'm finding it hard to find clothes that fit me. I'm so excited to have the baby! My sister-in-law Natalie just gave birth to her 4th child early Saturday morning. Devin and I went to visit her and her cute baby girl, Kyla, and it hit me that the next time I'd be in the hospital holding a newborn would be when I deliver. Holy moly! It just doesn't feel real. When does the reality of it all finally hit?
