I think the word is pretty much out that Mark and I are expecting our first little one in a few short weeks.  Many of you have asked to see pictures of my budding belly, so I thought that sharing a few from our trip to Mexico last week would be a good way to do it.
We planned a trip to Cabo San Lucas last June, a week before finding out (SURPRISE) “you’re pregnant”! My doctor is a cool guy, and he let me go anyways, despite the fact that I’m not supposed to be traveling anymore.  And it worked out.  It was just what we both needed.  It was what we like to call “aggressive relaxation”.  The sun and the water were like a magic happiness pill for my increasingly awkward body.  
So enjoy the views.  I am excited to introduce you all to our gal soon!


oh, and Mark took all the ones of me. Didn’t he do well?

Couldn’t miss the historic inauguration!  Even the resort was buzzing Obama.
