Update on Greg's Dad

I've had quite a few people ask recently about how Greg's dad is doing. They are doing well, but still in Seattle. Elaine (Greg's mom) does a great job keeping us updated on her blog so I thought I'd include a link for anyone wanting more info. Click here to see how he is doing.

Baby Update

Warning: This post will mostly be the rambling of a very tired, very pregnant woman. Be warned.

I think this pregnancy has been ignored a little. It's not that we're not excited, because we are! There's just been so many other things going on that it's been put on the back burner. But with only three weeks it's time to focus! I went to the dr. today and she said everything looks great. For multiple reasons, including baby size and distance from the hospital, she suggested scheduling an induction at 39 weeks. I went past my due date with both Brayden and Tawny and they were both huge! So we'll see if I make it to 39 weeks, which I think I will. I'd prefer not to be induced, but I'd also prefer to not deliver a 9.5 lb baby. ;)

I've been surprised at how different this pregnancy has been than my other two: very little morning sickness, swelling, indigestion or discomfort. In fact, even now at 36 weeks I regularly "forget" I'm pregnant, only to be reminded when I walk by a mirror. That is not a pleasant surprise. I feel like the Lord knew how much I could handle with everything else going on and chose to lighten my load. It has truly been a tender mercy over the last 8 months.

So only three weeks to go! I still haven't even picked out a name yet. Any suggestions?

We're Home!

It is so good to be back home! We were in the pool literally 15 minutes after I got home. We'll pretty much be living in the pool until the baby comes.

(you didn't think I'd post a pic of me in my swimsuit did you? Besides I don't have a wide angle lens so I couldn't even if I wanted to.) We have a lot to do to get resettled. Yesterday Brayden informed me that our house "is a disaster". That pretty much sums it up.

just because it's so cute

Happy Fourth!

We had a great 4th of July! We went up to Seattle for the weekend. Greg flew back from cali and it was so good to see him again. The kids had such a great time. I was feeling crafty and made them both shirts for the special day. Well, I made Tawny's and decorated a plain white tee for Brayden. Close enough right?

such cuties!
We played with bubbles in the afternoon and they both really loved it.

Tawny had an outfit change due to an accident. It was cold and I had only brought her one pair of pants so we had to improvise: princess jammies, daddy's socks and Brayden's shoes. Quite the fashion statement!
This was probably the best of all- sitting on Grandpa's lap and and smarties. It doesn't get much better than that.
