Here is a (tardy) belly shot picture for 34 weeks. After my next appointment I will see the Dr. EVERY WEEK. Liberty's due date is still March 31st, but I'm convinced she'll come the first week in April sometime. I'm feeling good. Trying to walk a lot since standing and laying down are much more comfortable than sitting for me. I have a pretty constant ache/pain at the top of my uterus that I get from sitting up straight. Hopefully this will go away when she drops and get's ready for her birthday! Upcoming posts should include installing the car seat and unveiling the nursery! Stand-by!

We took a day trip to Jerome and Sedona to celebrate Valentine's Day and probably our last fancy dinner out for awhile. The Doctors encourage us to stay close to home now since labor is on the horizon. In a last minute attempt to get out and see the sites of Arizona (just as a couple) we made plans to have lunch at The Asylum in the historic mining town of Jerome, AZ and to have dinner at our favorite restaurant Cucina Rustica in Sedona. The Asylum is Senator John McCain's favorite place and I had never been to Jerome before. It was fun to walk around and shop the hilly town. We then went to Sedona and took a few scenic drives to Red Rock Crossing, Chapel of the Holy Cross and down by the creek to check out L'auberge de Sedona. We shopped at the outlets where mom, dad and Liberty all got a new outfit. It was a beautiful day spent with the windows and sunroof open. Dinner at Cucina Rustica was special as usual with the love of my life!

Here is our bump at 33 weeks. I'm feeling fine. I've been hyper-sensitive lately, but emotional roller coasters are part of the journey I guess. I'm still working a lot (every weekend here lately) but I consider showing property my exercise since I'm not doing anything else! We've taken our childbirth and breastfeeding classes at the hospital and are finalizing the nursery. Hard to believe at 37 weeks I'll have a full term baby inside me! Cameron has been setting up all the gear (swing, diaper genie, car seat, etc) and we are stocked up on diapers and wipes. I've even done a load of baby clothes laundry! Thanks for all the wonderful comments on the photos and her name (see below).
(as Wolf Blitzer would say..) Stand-by!

Liberty Ann Wyatt
We found out we were pregnant after a trip to Boston over the 4th of July holiday. Liberty's history-buff Dad was inspired and her political-science Mom liked the pretty sound of it, so it stuck. Hope our Lady Liberty likes her name!
Her name also gave us an idea for our Maternity photo shoot. Check out all the pictures here: http://arizonalewisphotography.blogspot.com/
