Summer Swim lessons.

Wow! It's been a while (5 months) since my last post.
Things have been a little crazy around here, but in a great way!
For the last month, Elliott has been taking swim lessons at Brian's work. 
Our goal was for him was to stay 5-10 minutes in the water of the 25 minute class.
To our surprise, he loved it and made it all 25 minutes! 
Here are a few pictures and videos from this months swim class.

E is just a little guy, so the water would usually turn him purple. 
Luckily, the swim instructor
brought him a wetsuit to wear during class.

Cutest thing EVER! 
It worked wonders!

This picture brings me so much joy. 
I literally die over these two. 
That smile, double chin, wet is just too much cuteness!

Getting ready for his last swim class!

Learning to hold on to the side. 

Getting ready to be dunked under. 

Now dads turn to try...

 Elliott is a pro at going under. I hope this means teaching him to swim will be easy! ;) 

This was not from swim class, but I need a picture with the little swimmer too!

Elliott Lyne Scott

What a crazy, awesome surreal week. 
Last Thursday, March 13th  around 9:30pm
 Brian accused me of "peeing on the couch".
Only to find out my water had broken. 
16 days early. 
After being admitted into the hospital at 10pm
Little Elliott made his grand appearance
on Friday, March 14, 2014 at 10:40am. 
Elliott Lyne Scott. 
6lbs 3oz and 19.5 inches long. 
He is perfect. 
We are so in love and look forward to what's to come. 
He's had to spend the first week of his life in a Light box
for his jaundice. 
We finally got the OK to officially retire the box. 
I'm not sure we could take another night or day 
with him in it. 

I wanted to share a few of the hospital photos.
Yep, I bought them.

Nearing the end...

We are 3 weeks out from our due date . 
Of course, give or take a week. 
Several of our friends and family have commented that, "this pregnancy has gone by so fast."
I'm so happy it has gone by "so fast" for you. 
Ha ;)
Once I hit the 7.5 month mark and stopped vomiting, it started to pick up a little 
for me as well. And for that, I am so thankful. 

Now that I am in my last and final month, it is going so sloooow.
We are starting to get really excited to meet our little guy, Elliott. 
His nursery is ready, car seat in place, bassinet set up all ready for his arrival. 

I'm trying hard to enjoy my last moments of being "selfish" and "quiet time", but I keep finding 
myself wishing away this time. 
I'm ready to leave the acid reflux, burping, growing body, waddling long behind. 

A few weeks ago,
Brian insisted we take maternity photos.
And secretly, I'm glad we did. 

Here are a few from our session:

This is my favorite picture.
Please notice how "something" is eating his pants.
