We'd yet to visit, so the opportune stopover during our Palm Springs babymoon instilled in us the wondrous breadth of God's creation, from crashing oceans, majestic mountains, tranquil forests, widespread flora, to desert wilderness. I just thought all the Joshua trees were rather funny-looking, and we had a ball running around and acclimating ourselves with the expansive foliage. Well, I waddled more than ran, as we are nearing 34 weeks. Alex was so excited to snap all of the above 8 month belly pictures, and we are counting down until we meet this baby!
