The size of an eggplant.

Moving into nothing but dresses soon, I’m outgrowing everything!

Evan finally got to feel Max kick!

How much more uncomfortable I could possibly get still and not being able to successfully have a VBAC.

Alcohol and being about to do more active things like water parks and horseback riding.
