31 Weeks with Bébé Maul

Well, we've made it to 31 weeks, the third trimester, and the final stretch!!  Here are some snapshots commemorating the growth and memories along the journey, thus far...

Here I am at fourteen weeks and I remember feeling so much bigger, so quickly!  I seemed to have popped, fast, and now have been holding steady for quite some time:
 Here are the moments captured at 19 weeks (almost halfway there)!

 At exactly 20 weeks, Captain America and I were able to find-out the gender...
So, that evening, we had a small gender reveal for my family (after everyone had cast their votes).  Eric was even here and able to join in the festivities!
Here is a video of this "reveal".  This was definitely one of those memories that will last a lifetime...so much joy and excitement!

 And then Fall finally hit and I made it to the third trimester.  Here is the growth at 27 weeks 4 days:
And to get us pretty close to the present, our lovely and talented friend, Miranda, captured some maternity/family photos of us.  There are so many great ones...here are a few (end of 28 weeks)!
So what's next?  As we await the arrival of our new baby girl, we look forward to: my mom and sister throwing a baby shower (!!), my brothers coming home on furlough for 3 months (and they will be here for all of the holidays/birth), finishing up the baby room, finishing up school and maternity-leave plans, our 8 year anniversary in December and enjoying the holidays!  So much to be a part of in 8 1/2 weeks or less...
