Fun at Honey's!!

We recently returned from an 8 day visit to Honey's house in Dallas! We had such a fun time and as always it is always so fun to be with Honey. My older brother, sister-in-law and nephew came down from Oklahoma too so it was really fun for the cousins to play together. Some of the things we did while in Dallas include:
*playing catch and t-ball, Kailey LOVES her pink glove!
*rode on scooters
*went shopping A LOT!
* visited friends
*went out to eat
*completed my baby registries for my shower
*went to the movies
*saw a children's show
*grilled out
* took a cooking class (YUMMY FOOD)
*and laughed A LOT!

We are looking forward to Honey coming to visit us in a couple of weeks for some more fun!! Below are just a few of the pictures from our trip, notice how Kailey has on a princess dress in almost EVERY PICTURE! Can I just tell you, she LOVES LOVES LOVES to play dress-up ALL THE TIME!!!

How your baby's growing:Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. Her muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and her head is growing bigger to make room for her developing brain. To meet her increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because her bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.
I can't believe I am already in the 3rd trimester, time is flying by and in 11 weeks (or less) we will be meeting our beautiful little girl. We are busy getting her nursery all ready! Kailey LOVES to talk about her "little sissy" and is very protective of my tummy. She is quick to tell people that it is HER sissy, its pretty darn cute I must say! Kailey is really into helping me get things ready and really loves that every time sissy gets something new she does too!!

28 weeks!

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

Week 27

Last week we had our check-up with Dr. LeBlanc, everything is looking great and baby is right on track. I also had my glucose screening and everything is just fine in that department! We also had our ultrasound with Dr. Rowe- he said baby girl is looking GREAT and is VERY LONG! I was 26w4d when he dad the ultrasound and he said that baby girls legs were measuring at 29w6d-- WOW, yes they are VERY long... Hmmm, I wonder where she gets that?!?! He said that she is growing just right and will most likely be long and lean:)
We go back in about 3 weeks for our next check-up!
This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

Week 26

How your baby's growing:

The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. She's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of her lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when she's born and takes that first gulp of air. And she's continuing to put on baby fat. She now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches from head to heel.

Nursery Update:

The crib and dresser are IN! We will have them THIS weekend! The mattress should be delivered THIS week as well! The nursery is all painted, too! We are just waiting for the artwork and other sweet touches to arrive along with the rug and window treatment! How exciting!!

4th of July FUN!

To celebrate the 4th of July we had over several friends with their kiddos! We enjoyed some yummy BBQ, hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, beans, watermelon, pie, oreo balls and over course lemonade and carmel corn! We even had some fresh oysters, I didn't eat any but I heard they were quite delicious! The kids had fun playing outside and the Daddy's even turned the regular slide into a super-dooper WATERSLIDE, complete with a pool at the end! The kids had SO MUCH FUN and must have gone down that thing at least 50 times! We packed up the chairs and headed to Kemah for an awesome fireworks show, it was really great and the kids did fantastic! It was so fun to spend time with friends and celebrate our great country!

July 1, 2009

On Wednesday our church had an AWESOME 4th of July celebration! It started with a yummy dinner from Chick-Fil-A followed by patriotic music and recognition of those who has served this great country. Our church, Sagemont, has a HUGE cross outside with water all around it. They did a special baptism at the celebration and baptised 60 people, WOW! How awesome, so many people loving Jesus!!! The fireworks started after that and boy were they beautiful! They were right behind the cross which made for some awesome pictures and a constant reminder of how awesome God is! It was a nice reminder that even though having our "independence" is an awesome thing being "dependent" on him is the most important!

Kailey LOVED the music and fireworks and kept saying "More Fireworks, Daddy" " I want more fireworks." She and Greg danced to the music and we all just enjoyed some family time. I am really glad that we found a church that values family events so much, I love the time I get with my wonderful family!!
