It’s been hectic since we got back from vacationing in Les Sables. We had such a wonderful time with family and friends and it was sad to have to say goodbye. Yet, goodbyes have to be said and we’ve got a lot to do for our move to La Ciotat.  Since coming home we’ve had to do a lot of packing, doctors visits (for Théo and me), shopping for kitchen appliances, etc. etc. Moving is always hectic though so it’s no surprise but I’ll be very relieved when we get to the point where we’re all settled down in our new home.

As far as my pregnant self goes – I’m doing great! I do, however, think that I ate too much while staying with my in-laws!!! I couldn’t help it though- they are such great cooks!!! The baby is kicking and moving like never before and I swear that she has more energy than I do! I just can’t wait to see her little face and I get so emotional when watching anything to do with giving birth :)

Now I’ve got to go to bed since it’s close to one o’clock in the morning and I’ve got three doctor’s appointments and a lot of packing to do tomorrow before our big move on Friday.

love and light,
