We don't like to travel...

... just kidding. That's all we/I do. I don't know what I am going to do when next month hits and I can't just jump in the car and go to Chicago! Ben and I went 2 weeks ago, I returned last week, and then again 2 days ago. I just LOVE my parents (and scoobies). And Grant freaking LOVES LOVES LOVES Laurel ("Lowlel"). I also seem to be awesome at NOT taking pictures on our camera. My phone is just so much easier than trying to remember to grab the camera, replace the batteries, etc. So- here are some pictures from this past month from my PHONE. These are all ones I've posted to facebook, minus the last one, so if you don't want to look, you don't have to :) Enjoy!

My little sister is a varsity for Lake Forest High School. I was also a for my school when I was her age... oh my gosh- was that really 10 yrs ago? So, I love going to see her cheer, because they still use most of the cheers we did, AND, I can sit and criticize and feel like I know what I'm talking about :) It was really rainy at the game the other night, but Grant was having a BLAST cheering on the s (those in blue in the background). He would also turn around and clap for ALL the students who were sitting behind us. He was a hit :)
ALL upon a time, it's humid here. I don't mind it THAT bad, because it keeps my skin moisturized and my hair looks AMAZING when I let it go curly. But poor little Grant seems to have a hard time. I was at play group, and he was running around a lot- which is totally normal for him. But he was the ONLY one who walked away looking like this. I had to take him home early and get him inside our A/C home before he melted away!
Like father, like son. Need I say more? Probably not, but I'm Rochelle, and I don't ever stop talking... SO- Grant LOVES the "geetawr" and he loves hitting the Guitar Hero guitar and saying, "bam bam bam." I don't know why he thinks that that is the sound a guitar makes, but it's sure cute.
Back in Chicago, I took my friend Molly, her son Luke and Grant to Lamb's Farm yesterday. We had a lot of fun looking at the cow, the llama, the chickens and turkeys, and then the goats. Grant LOVES goats. He would hug them, and then I had to stop him from kissing one or two. Then, Grant saw that there was a place with MORE goats (the goat pen?), and he went running to see them, tripped, and then face planted it in the largest pile of goat poop in the petting area. Awesome. He totally had goat poop all over that cute sweater of his. Sad, but of course- he had a blast!
Grant likes to do whatever Ben is doing. Strange, eh? So here he is with my old apron on while he was helping Ben make a sandwich for me. That apron is one I "made"/decorated at a birthday party when I was maybe 8 years old. It was so fun to see him wearing it. Also, I guess you need a colander for making sandwiches.
And if anyone is interested, this is me. I took this picture a week ago (for Ben), so that would make me 31/32 weeks in this pic. I made the pic bigger, again, for those interested. My cute sister in law, Alison, has helped me get a new wardrobe full of maternity clothes, and this was the latest shirt. I love it! In fact, I'm wearing it again as I blog right now!! So, sorry I look like a tool, but here is baby #2! Now, let's all start telling this child to get head down... it has 2/3 more weeks to do it on it's own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE END.

You are such a cute pregnant person! I Hope I look as good as you at that point in my pregnancy. The story about Grant is sad/funny by the way.

I miss LB! :( Glad you are close that you can take frequent trips. I'm sure Mom and Dad (and Laurel and Reid) enjoy it! :)
