it is way too hot to be pregnant

I have nothing much today.
Just a few random pictures and a few random thoughts.
I can hardly put my thoughts together to form a post these days.
Maybe it is because it is way too hot to be pregnant.
Don't get me wrong...I am so thankful to be pregnant again.
And I am so thankful for this little boy that will soon be joining our family.
But it is REALLY hot in Kansas this week.
I have always loved summer and the heat has never really bothered me much.
But this summer is HOT.
I am sure the prego belly doesn't help.
Can I just say that I am SO THANKFUL for air conditioning!?
What would we do without it?

 Levi doesn't seem to mind the heat at all.
Check out those dirty hands and the nice farmer's tan.
He has been really into not wearing a shirt these days like his daddy.
He doesn't even want to sleep with one on.
So sweet how he wants to mimic everything his daddy does.
I am so thankful that he has a great daddy to follow after.
Remember how I told you our garden was a total failure this year?
We pretty much tilled everything up.
We thought our potatoes were our only successful crop, but even those were pretty bad.
I had already bought pumpkin seeds and wanted to get them in the ground...
I just didn't want to go out in the heat and do it myself.
So Levi and Joel were nice enough to do it for me.
Hopefully our pumpkins will be more successful than the rest of our garden.
I just need to remember to water them. :)

Levi is needing a haircut...his daddy almost can't stand it.
But I love those sweet little curls in the back.
I am putting off the first haircut as long as I can.
And I have no idea what is up with the blonde hair??
It just keeps getting blonder and blonder.

Levi has been wanting to rock with me in his rocking chair lately.
Every night before bed he points at the rocking chair in his room and says "rock, rock".
It might be a stalling technique...but I love it.
I am cherishing every moment of our "rock, rock" time together.
I found this little red rocking chair last week at the antique store.
He really likes it.
And now he doesn't have to steal my chair and can even "rock, rock" outside.

My zinnias are beautiful right now.
They are about the only thing alive in my garden.
Thankfully they love the heat...unlike me. :)

 They can survive the heat...
but hopefully they can survive my mischievous son too.
Little boys can be hard on a mama's garden.

Hope you are enjoying these summer days.
I noticed they are already putting school supplies out in the store.
Crazy how fast time goes sometimes!
A reminder to enjoy every moment...even the hot, summer ones.

I will post the giveaway {you know, the one that was supposed to be last week} sometime tomorrow.
Make sure you check back!

Hi Jess! I just completed my first week of my very belated 30 day challenge. God has blessed me so much in the time I've carved out to spend with Him this week. I wanted to know how you're doing since the 30 day challenge has ended. Your posts inspired me so much. I am so grateful for what you shared. Hang in there with the heat. I was so grateful for a February baby, myself. Don't know how you summer preggos do it.

The last picture of Levi is so precious!!! He is such a doll and getting so big. My kids don't mind the heat either and want to play outside all the time.

Diddo!
I know exactly how you are feeling! I live in Kansas, am preggers (due in mid September), and am trying to keep up with my two boys (ages 2 & 4).
I hope we can catch a break from this heat sometime soon!! :)

I can SO relate. The heat is really getting to this pregnant mama too! I'm in Georgia and the humidity is terrible. At least we know we're not alone I guess! The pictures of Levi are adorable!! selphpartyof3.blogspot.com

What an adorable farmer's tan!! This Kansas heat has been absolutely ridiculous... I can't even imagine it being pregnant. I hope it cools off soon for you!!

My son had blonde hair like Levi with little curls in back too,that I couldn't bear to cut off. His eyebrows started growing in darker as a young boy, and then his hair got darker until now at almost 21he has very dark brown hair, but with reddish facial hair.

The picture of Levi on the swing reminds me of my son's smile and hair when he was that age. I also remember being pregnant with him in August and just laying under a fan for an afternoon, I was so miserably hot.

You have been in my thoughts and prayers in this HEAT!

My grandson's hair was white when he was a year and up to a little over two, then it began to darken. Today, almost 18 years later (YIKES!) it's a very dark chocolate brown. Wouldn't know it was the same kid!

Levi's a cutie!! Anxious to see #2! You will have a very busy house!

haha, your post had me laughing. I was in Kansas last week and i am pregnant also and it really was miserable and H.O.T! In fact I was asked if I wanted to go to the zoo at one point and I just gave our friends a crazy eyed look..... The strawberry lemonades from Mcdonalds are a tasty summer treat that have helped me! Love the sweet photos of Levi!

Yep....it is hard to be pregnant in the summer. And, Luke started liking to rock around that age, and he still likes it. In fact, if I'm home, he won't nap or go to bed without me rocking and singing to him. And, I LOVE it! I won't stop until he's ready :). So, I'm glad Levi likes it as well.

Levi's curls are SO sweet! You need to make a silhouette of him before you cut them off!! Just Google it, their are tons of tutorials on how to make one yourself. :)

Doesn't it just STINK being pregnant during summer? I live in Florida and with both of my Girls, I was pregnant from January to the beginning of October and I was absolutely MISERABLE in the heat! Once you see that beautiful baby, though.. It will be worth it!

Hi, just a lurker here. Your family is just beautiful. I love hearing (reading) about your adventures. I have 15 month old twins who are quite active and sometimes mischievous themselves!! I was hoping you might share what kind of camera and lens you use. I LOVE taking pics of my kiddos and am looking to upgrade!! Thanks in advance!

I live in Arkansas and is HOT here too-I usually love summer but this one hasn't been that great because of the heat-it started so early. I have a daughter who is pregnant to and actually she is 5 days overdue so I am sure she can identify with you and the heat. Levi is adorable and looks like so much fun! Thanks for sharing!

I live in North Texas and the bank's thermometer said 111 degrees at 7:00 p.m. last night - seriously YUCK! I can't even imagine being preggers in this kind of heat! Hang in there and I see that someone else mentioned the frozen strawberry lemonades from McD's - a seriously delicious treat in this heat! I am ashamed to say how many I've had this summer :) Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Your zinnias look great and mine look sad! They just keep withering up and I thought it was from the heat. ?? My garden, however, looks good! The Man does all the work, thankfully. I just eat the goods.

I so understand! I'm 32 weeks pregnant and it has been really really hot here (Ohio)! I don't like summer when I'm not pregnant because of the heat and humidity, this year is insane! And our a/c is broken! Here's hoping for much cooler weather for all the mommas to be (and everyone else too!)!
