Zinc is an important vitamin with the atomic number of 30. Thirty is the total number of major and minor keys in Western tonal music. Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist at the age of 30. There are thirty uprights that form the Sarsen Circle at Stonehenge. 30 Seconds to Mars was a favorite band of mine in college.
Can you believe it? I am now in the thirties! Baby J is now 16 inches long and weighs 3 lbs. It’s hard to believe the babe has doubled in height in the last six weeks.

Over the weekend , Mr. JCrew and I went Destin, FL for a mini-vacation. Destin is where Mr. JCrew was stationed in the AirForce and where he and I met (kinda). We had fun reminiscing. Driving by locations we went to when we’d meet up.
Growing up in FL, I took the beach for granted. And Mr. JCrew got tired of it, living seconds from the beach. So, it took us a few years to really have the desire to go back.
I even got to bury Mr. JCrew in the sand!
I loved the beach! It was so nice to get outside in the sun and cool off in the ocean. On the last day we were there, the seaweed was thick. It didn’t stop us from going in. Instead, we threw it on each other like a bunch of kids. It stuck to us like Nickelodeon slime. J This baby doesn’t know what kind of parents God picked out for it!!
