A difference in hair styles

Every day, when I leave for class, Harper's hair looks like this,

but when I get home her hair looks like this!  She likes the finished product, but it sure is a pain to take out!

Taking a walk

Last week, I decided to take a walk around the city for some exercise and to just get lost and explore.  Well, as it turns out, it's pretty hard to get lost in our city.  You can walk from one end to the other in about 40 min, but it was fun to explore.  I decided to capture some of the sights that I saw along my walk and share them with you.  You will see different style homes, buildings, and places of worship.  Hope you enjoy my walking tour.  I hope to do more and share more pictures of our city with you.  I still find the market intimidating and will have to get pictures of buying meat, which I find the most intimidating, for you later.  For now enjoy!

Not sure if this is a house or what?!

18 wk. bump

Yesterday marked 18 weeks.  I feel like this pregnancy is flying by.  The baby is due on or around August 21, 2012.  We will have been here only 7 months when this precious blessing arrives.  This is sure to be an adventure, but I am also encouraged by hubby who constantly reminds me, "We got this babe."  If you know us then you know he likes to say this phrase and we often joke about it. ;)  Until now, I often forgot that I was even pregnant.  We live a busy life around here!  But there's no denying it now.  I am definitely showing.  I was able to hide it for quite sometime from my peers at aerobics and dance, but now the belly has reached the uncomfortable hard stage, already!  In just a couple of weeks we will have the big revealing!  Until then, enjoy these photos!

 Harper wants to have her picture taken too.  Like mommy, like daughter!

 Matt's 4.5 month picture.  This is definitely not what he really looks like; he is pushing it out.  I don't think this boy could gain weight if he tried!

 Love that my little girl wants to do what I do!

Dancing Queen!

Our little princess has been going to a dance class here in the city.  Although she wasn't too sure about it the first day, she loves it now and even asks to go without prompting.  She has been picking up more and more of the language.  It is quite funny to be walking outside and hear her say, "Look Mama a sabaka (dog)."  I love it.

Spring Table

It was time to brighten things up around here, so last weekend I sewed some placemats for our new Ikea table.  We are ready to start hosting our new friends and maybe even a few parties.  Our apartment still has a long way to go with regards to decor, but I am excited for new DIY projects.  When our nanny came on Monday she asked, "Are you having guests tonight?"  I said, "No, I just like the way it looks."  It makes me happy.

What do you think of our new placemats and spring table?
