July 2009

I couldn't come up with a more exciting title, my brain failed me as it does so often these days.

I guess first and foremost would be a pregnancy update. As of today, I am 30 weeks and 1 day. I am absolutely huge and at the Doctor two weeks ago my belly measured 3 weeks ahead of dates, the baby measured 2 weeks ahead and I have a high level of amniotic fluid. It appears that this pregnancy is progressing exactly as Molly's and Sadie's did. They were both born in the 35th week and were "fully cooked" and ready. As my Mom said, if I happen to go full term, I'll have to push my belly around in a wheelbarrow because there won't be any way I'll be able to carry it! I am seeing my Doctor every 2 weeks now and having ultrasounds to monitor my progression.

We've decided to name our newest little sweetie Lucy Jayne. We've been hard at work on her nursery and getting everything ready for her arrival. It's been so long since we've had a baby, I'm afraid I'm going to forget something! The girls are so excited, they love to talk to her and rub on my belly and feel her kick.

Molly and Sadie have gone to quite a few little daycamps this summer, as well as two weeks of VBS! The weeks of VBS were by far their favorites. They have great CD's from both of them and have learned some wonderful new songs that warm my heart! Sadie loves to go upstairs and blast the music from her CD player and sing her little heart out!! She's gonna be our teenager that we are constantly asking to turn her music down!

They also attended a cheerleading camp that had a theme every day. These pictures are from "tacky day":

Molly's big accomplishment for the summer is that she has learned to ride her bike without training wheels!! She started out using Sadie's little bike, so she could easily touch the ground (thanks for the tip Amy!), but has now moved back up to her bigger bike. She loves it!

We are enjoying our last couple of weeks before school starts. We have no official plans. My plan is to soak up every bit of these sweet girls that I can before they head off to school and we add a baby to the mix!!

I love that name! It sounds great with the others. I know she will be just as precious as her sisters. I started reading from JMom's blog. Blessings on your delivery, which sounds like could be any time now. We have three children-ages 21,17, and 15. Mine were all early like that,too. Yet, still 7 - 8 1/2 lbs. It is kinda nice, especially for you in the summer heat!
