Day 305 - October 31, 2016

When I told the girls that I was going to take their annual Halloween costume pictures, I was surprised by their excitement. They spent an hour running through the house gathering accessories for their photoshoot and making sure their hair was just right.

When we arrived at our location, Adelyn turned into the director of photography setting up each shot just as they had planned. Several hundred pictures later, we began to feel a few rain drops and Briar asked to go home. I told Adelyn it was time to pack up her dwarfs and head to the car.

"I don't want to go. I still want to take more pictures. I'm having too much fun!" she responded.

It was such a joy for me to see her get as excited as I do about a great photoshoot! I can't wait for her to direct a photoshoot of her newest little sister in a few months!

Happy Halloween!

Day 298 - October 24, 2016

Last week, Adelyn brought home a very special Peacebuilders Praise award. Her teacher had praised her for always having a smile and a great attitude. I'm so thankful that she takes her beautiful smile with her to school every day!

Also, I can't stop staring at this gorgeous girl's school picture.

Day 291 - October 17, 2016

Remember the ultrasound I had scheduled today that was suppose to confirm my new estimated due date of February 10th, 2017? Well, the ultrasound happened, but the due date is still up in the air. The good news is, Briar and I got to see our sweet baby girl. The unfortunate news is, our baby is measuring on the smaller side and after today's ultrasound, the new estimated due date is even later (February 16th).  So this ultrasound confirmed nothing, other than the fact that she's still a she and she's adorable! The doctor wants to see me again in another 4 weeks so he can make a better estimation of our little bundle's date of arrival. Can't I just be having a smaller baby? After the two very big babies I've pushed out, I think I deserve a little one.

Day 288 - October 14, 2016

At 23 weeks, our baby is the size of a grapefruit. Sure, grapefruits are bigger than oranges, but they're no watermelon. So you can imagine my disappointment when someone said to me today, "I know you still have a long way to go, but you look ready to pop!" Just what every woman in their sixth month of pregnancy wants to hear. An hour later, I was picking up Adelyn from school when I heard, "When are you going to pop?" You have got to be kidding me, I thought. I turned around to see another Mom, who happens to be 9 months pregnant, behind me. Thank goodness that question wasn't directed at me. I don't know if my heart could take hearing that twice in one day.
