List of news

One of these days I'll be good at blogging again and take more pictures and write longer blogs. But for now here we go with a list of updates on our life and recent events.

1. First of all, I went to the doctor yesterday and my cervix has remained the same for 12 weeks now! Praise the Lord! Every week that it stays the same is a blessing now because I am getting further and further along and "out of the woods" so to say. I am 30 weeks and no bedrest and hoping to make it 6 more weeks! Things are looking great!

2. While I was gone to Dallas Phillip and some great friends painted Canon's room. It looks great and we are putting new details in it everyday. I will take pictures here in the next week or so. get ready!

3. The girls and I flew to Dallas with my parents on Aug.4th. We had a GREAT time and spent as much time by the pool as possible. It was my mom's birthday on 08-08-08, I had a dear friend get married on 08-09-08, and an engagement party for my brother on 08-10-08. For all of these events I got dressed up and actually didn't wear my infamous goucho pants I've become attached to. However....I took NO PICTURES!

4. I got to see one of my best friends, Betsy, who is pregnant and due 3 days before me. Betsy and I's other best friend Lauren is also pregnant right now and we are all having fun talking babies and pregnancy together.

5. I'm back in STL for a while. No plans or big events until Canon is born. I am just so excited to finally be able to organize a little and clean out the basement (which Phillip so WONDERFULLY cleaned as well as the garage the other day!!) I promise to take more pictures here in the next couple of weeks.

My dad (Pops) pushing Avery in the swing.

Aunt Angie and sweet 9 MONTH OLD Brenley! My sister is really great at taking pictures and did a good job capturing our 10 days together. She even took some really funny pictures of my last motoroized wheelchair ride (hurray!) at Costo. It was hilarious! Check it out here!

Me and Betsy and our prego bellies!

Before we left for Dallas we played outside with bubbles and our little swimming pool.

Atley is wearing pigtails! I just love it and she looks so much older!

Avery and her sweet tiny pony tail. Her hair is growing though!

My mom (Nana) and Atley in the pool. Atley LOVES the water and was wanting to really start swimming. She even put her face under the water multiple times and was good at keeping her hat and sunglasses on :)

Avery in her cool shades, hanging out by the pool, but not really wanting to get in it :) Sounds a little like her mommy....

Shelly, love the pics! Can't wait to see the room. (hint, hint) If you don't post pictures soon, you might end up with people on your front porch, just begging for a peek!
