32 weeks


Well, we are at 32 weeks...going to the doctor every 2 weeks now.  Soon it will be every week!

We went to the doctor yesterday and got to hear your heartbeat yet again...no matter how many times I have been pregnant, this is still one of my favorite sounds!  We talked with the doctor about having a c-section.  I have been praying about having a VBAC, but I just haven't had a peace about it.  Mommy and Daddy have been talking and feel like the safest way to get you here is to have a c-section.  So we are scheduled for June 17th...not sure if it will be the morning or afternoon time, but you will be here on that day! 

Daddy and the crew built your crib yesterday.  We can't wait to see you sleeping in it.  We still need to get a mattress for it, but we still have 7 more weeks to get that done.  We are slowly checking things off our nesting list.  I got all the envelopes addressed for your birth announcements.  Now, we are just waiting for your arrival to fill in all the information so we can print them off.  Mommy got some nursing clothing to make things a bit easier to feed you once you get here.  The only big things we have left is for the car seat to be put in the car and van, pack my bags for the hospital and get a bouncy seat. 

So that is what we have been up to the last couple of days.  We are looking forward to meeting you.  Stay in there and keep cooking for a few more weeks.

NC Trip


Well, we got back a few days ago from a quick trip to NC.  We got the rest of our baby stuff, so we are that much closer to being ready for Tobias' arrival.  Chris says he could come tomorrow, and we could survive.  Umm...we have no bed and no diapers...two pretty important things!! :) 

We had a lot of fun while in NC.  Josiah and Sophie were able to make some bread with Lin-Lin.  Josiah went fishing with Pa T and Daddy.  We played outside.  One of our friends is a squadron commander at the base, so we were able to get a tour.  We got to go out on the flight line and see a jet up close.  Then, he took us to the control tower and we were able to see the jets take-off and land.  It was pretty darn AWESOME!!  Our kiddos don't know how special this trip was, but maybe one day they will realize it.  We weren't able to take any pictures because of security reasons, so hopefully the amazing memory they have will remember this.  They also got to play with some kids their age...outside, again!  Being outside and having green grass to run around in makes me miss a yard even more.  We got our teeth cleaned...well, three of us did.  We let Sophie watch this time because she will be having her first appointment before we know it.  She is one who doesn't like new situations very well, so we are hoping that her watching Josiah get his teeth done will help her in the future.  

Well, that is it.  Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful spring weather.  We definitely have been...going on walks and playing outside.
