We are alive...I know you were real worried about us! :) It's been a few weeks & even though we have been very busy the blog hasn't been neglected just b/c of lack of time which is part of it but it is FULL again. I haven't had a bit of extra time to try to work on the new one much less try to clean out some duplicated pics from way back when I didn't realize that there was a picasa web album out there with all the pics I ever downloaded on here. I'm just as disappointed as you are to not have new pics up!

But as the blog continues to fall behind, we continue to get closer to Miss Caroline's arrival. :) I am 36 wks tomorrow & feeling as prego as ever!! I started swelling around my ankles a few weeks back but it would come & go. Now I've almost gotten to the point where I can't get rid of it unless I have my feet propped up all the time which who has time for that?!? I never really swelled with C but he was born in March & not the middle of the summer. It still is hard to be comfortable with your CANKLES feeling like they are about to exlode not to mention the extra water weight down there. But I'm making it.

As I type (with legs elevated), it sounds like a construction site above my head as I hear J working away on our demo/reconstruction upstairs. He began last w/e & it is really coming along. I have already been documenting the project thru pics which will hopefully appear on here at some point or probably the new blog. He has become quite the handyman & is doing a fantastic job!

Speaking of last w/e...some of my closest friends were so sweet to throw me a "sprinkle" to celebrate Caroline's pending arrival!!! We had a great time & she got some fun things! Sat. night, 3 of my pledge sisters & I stayed at Ross Bridge to celebrate all of us turning 30 this year...I'm not quite there yet...14 days & counting! :) The hotel was booked & the pool looked like a water park but we had a great time laying out, chowing down on some food & even went out downtown til later than I thought I would being 35 wks was great though & I had a blast hanging out with my girls that all live out of town!!

We head to the dr Tues to find out if I am measuring anything & that is when my weekly appts will start. No one thinks I'm going to make it to 40 wks like I did with C but we'll see...the dr says if you normally go that far with the 1st, you will with the 2nd. If that's the case then I will probably be getting induced again on my due date - 8/29. The funny thing is all the people I knew who were due in Aug, all had their babies this past Fri, well 3 of them...can you believe it?!? One was a planned c-section so we knew that one was happening but the other two were due 8/11 & 8/17 & just went into labor that day. The other one that was due 8/1 had her baby Mon. So I'm the only one left. :) One of the babies Daddy's birthday was Fri too so now they get to share a b'day. :)

Another funny thing...y'all probably don't remember this (devoted blog followers) but way back when I was 38 wks with C I posted THIS post. It was about how J & I went & had japanese & our fortune cookies talked about "doing something different this coming w/e" which ended up not being exactly right but we did get induced that Mon. Well C spent the night out last night with my mom (we were supposed to go to a wedding in Huntsville but with my swelling & J having his big project we decided against it) so we went out to Sumo for dinner last night. And here are our fortune cookies...I opened mine first & it said "You will soon get something special b/c of your charm" which could be anything but J's said "Next week at this time, something good is coming your way!". So once again if the fortunes are right we might be mtg sweet Caroline early this time around. I would almost be 37 wks so we hope that isn't the case but you never know. Oh & we finally decided on her middle name but I can't put it on here yet b/c we haven't told all the family. I'll do my best to post after my appt on Tues.

I'm off to finish sewing her bed skirt...happy HOT Sunday to all!!


  1. So glad to read an update from you, cuz! Glad to hear you're doing well and love the baby's name, can't wait to hear the middle name! Take care sweetie and keep those feet up!!!

  2. This reminds me I lost 12lbs in 4 days after I was put on bedrest with Hadley so watch out! I was 39 1/2 weeks and the thought of bedrest was hard might kill you his early!
