25 Weeks: Summer Kick-Off

"It's a cruel, cruel summer. Now you're gone." ~ Bananarama

Memorial Day weekend is generally known as the unofficial start of summer. But anyone who hails from the Bay Area knows that this is not necessarily the case. I believe the phrase "June gloom" originated here. But Saturday took T's b-day cake right from under his nose with grey skies and intermittent showers. We had planned a little BBQ with a few friends and I meant to take lots of outdoor photos, but of course we all ended up staying inside for most of the evening. Plus, I overdid it with trying to frantically get the house ready for guests and ended up traumatizing my back about an hour before everyone was set to arrive. Fortunately we still had a lovely time, and I believe the good company and a nice stretch of rain-free weather allowing us to get our grill on saved the day.

Better yet, we had sunshine and clear skies on Sunday. So, I got appropriately dressed in a comfy, summer-y outfit and had T snap some shots to document this 25th week of pregnancy. Glad we did because today is cloudy and chilly yet again. Ugh. I want to wear my maxi dresses and sandals already.

As far as baby girl goes, she's still kicking like crazy (especially after mama indulges in some chocolate). I feel like my belly has really grown in the last week or two. Many more comments from strangers, lots of stretching in the muscles (probably contributed to my back seizing up the other day). We're slowly getting her room cleared out, but we still haven't bought much for the room so I guess there's no rush until we have furniture that needs to be set up. Excited to see her via ultrasound on Thursday!

P.S. I'm having so much fun playing with iPhone photo apps -- Instagram and Diptic. If you're on Instagram, follow me @flyrish.
