18 weeks and Aruba 2011

Aruba 2011 025

Hi friends!
We just got back from a trip to Aruba. Not a bad place to spend my 18th week of pregnancy. Now, as I write this I am now 19 weeks along.
I spent the time laying in the shade, playing with Paige, swimming, and napping. Chris did the lion's share of the work with caring for Paige and me. I'm a lucky gal.
Paige did great on the trip and was thrilled with all the wildlife she saw there: Mostly sand crabs, hermit crabs, iguanas, lizards, fish, and the flamingos. Seventh heaven for her. She talks about all the critters like they are her best buddies. The trip did wonders for her as she is now talking up a storm about what she saw and has started singing songs in their entirety...not just lines of songs here and there. Such cool developments!
Here are some photos from the trip to give a taste of our experience; see you soon friends!

I'm always on the lookout for lagoon-type calm waters - this looks perfect! (I hate when I can't see the bottom underwater) Definitely considering it for our next vacation!
p.s. you look fabulous :)

where did you get the cute maternity suits? I desperate for some!

Hi everyone! To answer questions: We stayed at the Renaissance resort and casino. We stayed at the "Ocean Suites" there and loved it!!!

The bathing suits are tankinis; not maternity suits. One was from Macys and the red striped one was from Lands End Canvas. They JUST fit the bill; almost too small for me.
