Sweet Sisters

Since we are trying to get things packed up for our move, we have only left out a few toys and accessories for the girls. This morning I left them alone watching Dora so that I could eat my breakfast and drink my coffee in peace, and when I checked in on them this is what I found. There was only one chair, so they learned to share it! Such sweet girls...

This didn't last long, though. Claire was up shortly afterward shoving her favorite book in my face to get me to read it to her. We read this so much the pages have defintely become "well loved". She loves bugs!

Pregnancy Update

Today I had my 24 week visit with Dr. Cowan. Everything appears to be perfect. No ultrasound today, but here's a picture of my 24 week along belly. We will see him again in 4 weeks and then we start our bi-monthly visits.
I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

For comparison purposes, here's how this pregnancy is stacking up against the last one:

  • total weight gain: 14 pounds
  • blood pressure: 138/62
  • baby's heart rate: 150's
  • cravings: cookies

  • total weight gain: 6 pounds
  • blood pressure: low
  • baby's heart rate: 148
  • cravings: chocolate

Is Steve coming over?

Sadly yesterday we lost a member of the family who had been around for the past 9 years.
Goodbye sweet Pearlie May.

Happy Birthday!

to Steve!
On August 30th we celebrated Steve's 34th birthday. We had planned for friends to come over for a casual dinner, but we were given tickets to the season opener of the UT football game against Florida. Asking him to stay home from the game was like asking Cinderella to stay home from the ball! So we went and watched UT win and we had a fantastic time!
