Swimming, Showers, and Belly Shots, Oh My

The last couple weeks have been super busy, but I have lots of pictures so here goes.

Two weeks ago Naomi started swim lessons. She did great last summer, but she had regressed a little since so I wasn't sure how it would go. But she picked up where she left off. She was swimming under water and learning to take breaths while swimming. She can jump in to the pool, turn around, and swim back to the side. She can float by herself for 7 seconds (but she doesn't quite enjoy it). She even loved going down the slide (which she hated last year). She did great! I'm so proud of my little fish!

(In the pic on the right Naomi's teacher is just out of the shot but yes she went down the slide, under water, and popped back up all by herself)

Naomi hates to get her hair combed almost as much as I hate combing it. I have threatened to chop it off if she doesn't let me comb it and that always works. But I decided it was time she got her haircut, since she hasn't had one since she was 2. She was actually really excited, she wanted her hair to be short like Penny's (the girl on the movie Bolt). And she loves her new cut.

This last week I had a couple baby showers. My sis-in-law, Amy and friend Kristina Miller threw one for our ward friends. The dessert was delicious, especially since it was my favorite white texas sheet cake. It was fun chatting with friends, getting cute things for Jaxon and we even played a Michael Jackson dance game on the Kinect. It was way fun!

(The sign on the stand is part of some wall art my friend Kristina made, and it's awesome, once the nursery is done you'll get to see the entire thing)
(This sign my sis-in-law Amy made. I love it and it will go on the wall over the crib)

Then a couple days later my sis-in-law, Sondra and friend Nicole Cope threw me shower for family and friends up more in the Mesa area. The food was yummy; there was cheese fondue and chocolate fondue and lots of stuff to dip with. We had fun eating, chatting, playing shower games, and getting some more cute things for Jaxon. It was way fun too!

(Isn't the diaper cake super cute, Sondra and Nicole did an awesome job)

And now for the belly shot. This is me at 34 1/2 weeks. If you look closely you can see my belly button sticking out.

Did you know?

Naomi is hilarious some of the funniest things come out of her mouth. I wish I wrote them all down, but I never have a pen on me.

Anyway, Naomi was "reading" this book about bug habitats and there was a picture of an ant hill. Naomi puts her book down and says, "did you know that ants live in Volcanoes."

I said, " wow, but I think you mean ant hills."

Then Naomi says, "No. Ant volcanoes."

And I left it at that. What a funny girl.

Don't worry next post will have lots of pictures :)
