The last two weeks, only 8 left!

Things have been pretty normal around here. John studies a ton and I'm still getting bigger. Here is the 32 week picture to prove it:) I think I finally realized today that our little boys occasional rhythmical movements are actually his hiccups.
Last weekend for Valentine's Day we celebrated by enjoying the new Tucanos in Boise. It must have been an overload of salt though because I also experienced my first taste of swelling feet/fluid retention in my legs. At least it doesn't hurt but it sure is odd to see an indent in your shin just from pushing on it and then wonder when it will regain normal appearance. Guess I'll just have to use my recliner more to elevate my chubby little feet. These past couple weeks we have had two evenings of dancing too so that hasn't helped my feet either. We are the Ward Dance Festival Directors for the youth dance festival. It has been fun to learn the triple swing with John and now we are teaching it to the youth for our Wednesday night activity every week until the performance April 25th. Now remember how my due date is April 17th? Yep, we might run into some difficulties but luckily we have a back up couple to help us too. Dancing hasn't been a problem physically although I was rather disturbed last week when I saw video of us dancing. It's pretty funny to watch a really pregnant lady spin, jump and try to kick in a "can-can" type line.
We also had a fun time this past weekend attending the Idaho State Girl's Basketball tournament here in Boise. We mainly watched the 3A competitions because John's alma mater, Sugar-Salem High School, played. And they WON!! It was fun to watch and really fun to learn all the details of the team and the players from John's mom. She really is the stats queen!

awwww, look at that cute belly! I promise the weird swelling thing goes away almost immediately after birth, I'm starting to get it again too - no fun, but just part of the job.

I'm with everyone else - super cute dress!
