Happy Halloween!

Last night, we kept up our bi-annual tradition of painting my pregnant belly. I hope this continues at least until I am 30. ;)

Here is my 2009 Trevor belly, at 38 weeks pregnant.

Here is my 2011, nameless boy belly at 22 weeks pregnant.

I think the bump on the left is cuter...

Trevor is napping and we will head to my sisters to trick or treat when Tom gets home from work. Its a nice day here but will be chilly when the sun goes down.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!

We went to Seaworld on the Friday of our vacation. We had to fax over the house papers from the hotel and then we were off. First, we went to feed the dolphins because they only offered it twice a day. Trevor didn't want to feed them himself, but he thought they were pretty cool.

The whole day, we would see a few animals and then see a show. Repeat times 2. Trevor loved the penguins, any fish that resembled Dory or Nemo and the Beluga whales. That's still one of his favorite songs.

Here, he is showing the sea turtle his turtle tattoo :)

The first show we saw was the sea lion/otter show. They couldn't get the second sea lion to go off stage, so he was part of the show even though he shouldn't have been. It was pretty funny and they did a good job just going with it. My favorite part is the cute litter otters popping in and out.

After that, we did run straight to get a seat for the Shamu show. I wanted Trevor to grasp how big they were, so we sat toward the back of the soak zone. The show was awesome, even with them not getting in the water with the whales. We made it to the very end and then got one huge splash and got soaked. Trevor did not care for that.

We went to the Elmo play land next. Trevor jumped around and had fun with some other kids for a while.

We went to the arctic area and saw the -luga's(as Trevor calls them), polar bears and penguins.

Trevor fell asleep after that and we decided to go on the sky tram. He stayed asleep as we got on, but he woke up quickly. That day, he only got about a 20 minute nap and he was still such a good boy.

San Diego is just beautiful!

The next show was very good! It had dolphins, birds, tons of acrobats and pilot whales. We also saw a pet show with dogs, cats, a kangaroo, pigs, etc. and that was a big hit!

Tom and I both thought we like the Seaworld Orlando a little bit better, but we still had a great time. Can you tell I was lazy with the camera this day? Too much water for my comfort zone..;)

In other news, we had the inspection of the house tonight and it seemed to go well. Now we finish up with the mortgage documents and hope to close on November 15th!

Day 3 and Ultrasound

We hung out with Toms Aunt and Uncle in the morning on Thursday. I had met his Uncle while he was in town recently, but never had the chance to meet his Aunt Melissa. They were so kind and cute with Trevor. They have 4 cats, so Trevor was in heaven. Melissa was heading out of town herself, so we left before lunch and went to In and Out Burger. Tom had never been, he is now a big fan. As we left there, I realized we left Trevors beloved bear at their house! Luckily, they had a code we could use to run in and grab it. Crisis averted! We drove down to San Diego while Trevor napped.

Our SD hotel was not nearly as nice as our Anaheim one. It was just a room. We were spoiled the first few days. We went in the pool for a bit, but there were bees around so we didnt stay long. We went to the downtown area to explore and get some fresh air.

Could he be any more handsome? His shirt is SO accurate, too. ;)

I was craving Panera and thanks to my wonderful Iphone, I found there was on minutes from where we were. We had a big dinner and found out that night that they accepted our offer on the house we put a bid on. The realtor emailed me the papers we needed to sign, so we knew we had to take care of that in the morning before our fun began.


Before too much time goes by, I want to mention my ultrasound I had last week. We had a late evening appointment and left Trevor behind to go to bed. We had our normal 20 week ultrasound and I was 20 weeks 5 days pregnant. The ultrasound was awesome! It was the most detailed u/s I have ever had. The doc didnt just measure what he needed. He took the time to point out every single thing to us. He is so fun and friendly and enthusiastic. Everything on baby boy was perfect and measuring spot on. All the measurements were either 20w4d, 20w5d or 20w6d. He said up to 10 days before or after is normal and we were within one day. I was relieved he isnt huge..yet. And he is still a boy, very much so. He kept flashing his goods. He has an adorable profile and Trevors nose. He was sucking his thumb, which I was so excited about. Trevor never did that on any ultrasound. We love him so much and were happy he is growing as he should be!
Left is his profile and right is his boy part profile..haha

Wednesday, we headed to Disneyland! We got up, had breakfast at the hotel, checked out and drove to the park. It was HOT that day, ended up being 104 degrees! And it was super crowded, which I was not expecting. We still managed to have another great day.

We went right to the Haunted Mansion ride to get a fast pass. Because it is October, it had an extra long line. I didn't know that the mansion there is Nightmare before Xmas themed, it was so cool! We went on the Winnie the Pooh ride and then Tom went on Splash Mountain before it was time for our fast pass. Trevor was scared in Haunted Mansion, but he did not cry. He simply put his head on my chest and wouldn't lift it until we were off the ride.

We went in the Tiki Room and on the Jungle Cruise. We met Aladdin and Jasmine and decided to head to Toon Town to meet the characters before Trevor fell asleep.

On the way, we stopped at Pinocchio and Snow White. Then, we went on the Rodger Rabbit ride and the line was the longest we waited for! We finally arrived at Mickey and Minnies houses.

Trevor fell asleep, so Tom went on Space Mountain and I tried to stay in the shade and cool off. We went through at least 6 water bottles per day and Tom pushed me drinking a ton. I felt like we were running out of time, so after a little over an hour, we woke Trevor up and got in line for the Nemo ride. We felt bad, but he woke up to an ice cream, so it went a-okay!

Next, Tom and Trevor went on the car ride. I went up the exit ramp to watch them. As I stood there, unable to ride because I am pregnant, it occurred to baby boy is grown up. Trevor met the height requirement to ride with Daddy. I watched them interact while waiting in line. It made my heart break a little to think how recently he was a newborn and now he is riding rides without his Mama! They had a blast on the ride.

We went back to ride Its a Small World. That was by far, Trevor's favorite ride! He was singing along by the time we were at the end. He was happily yelling more!

Signing more, just to be sure we knew what he wanted!

We went by the castle to take some pictures before it got too dark.

I got stopped every 10 feet because of my shirt. Everyone said how cute it was and wanted to know where I got it. I have to admit, I love it too! It says Embrace your bump, in case its hard to read.

We ate a late dinner and went back to ride Small World again. We ran to ride Peter Pan and made it just in time. We went on Main Street so I could grab souvenirs. I got each of the kids something and somehow, we ended up only getting Trevor a light up Buzz and a zip up(that is ridiculously cute!) that he will get for his bday. We got Squishy his first stuffed animal, a Goofy! I felt bad for not getting more, but consider myself lucky that Trevor isn't at the age where he wanted everything!

We were so tired when we left and we still had to drive an hour to Toms Uncles house. We arrive at like 10:30 and Trevor and I went straight to bed.

Disneyland was wonderful. I had low expectations because everyone said world is so much better. I was pleasantly surprised at how great both Disneyland and Cali Adventure were. I am so glad we decided to go there during our trip.
