Happy Holidays!!!

I haven't updated in awhile - hoping to get better at that soon!! The girls keep me so busy!! But I wouldn't want it any other way. Ava is a joy and Natalie just adores her little sister.

38 weeks 5 days


Almost done!!! We're about as ready as we're ever going to be I think. The basement is almost finished. Just a few finishing touches left. Natalie LOVES her new play area.

I'm so excited to meet this baby - for the past few weeks I've definitely felt like we're missing a member of our family. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't anxious about all the changes we have coming our way. I hope Natalie handles everything ok - it breaks my heart a little to think of the HUGE transition she'll be going through soon. I'm going to miss her SO much while I'm in the hospital too. Due to concerns about the Swine Flu - no visitors under 14 allowed...including siblings. So that will definitely be hard. We're trying to explain things to her, but I'm not sure how much of it is clicking.

As of my doctor's appointment on Tuesday I was already 4cm dilated. WOW! So, any day now!

Natalie's weekend with Nana and Poppy!

Last weekend was a big weekend for all of us. Jeff was in a wedding and we were very busy so Nana came and took Natalie for the weekend! Natalie even went to her first wedding - our cousin Anna was also getting married. It was hard for us to be away from Natalie for 2 nights, but she didn't miss us at all!! She had a blast at Nana and Poppy's house!


Natalie with Poppy, Kevin, and Aunt Katie

Natalie seems to enjoy weddings!! Or maybe she just likes coloring with Aunt Katie and Kevin...

Swimming in Nana's BIG pool all by herself!!! First time using swimmies. What a BIG girl she is!

We have our first F-bomb. Oops.

Sorry Mom, but I have to post about this. Even though I know its bad she said it...it was pretty funny.

We were eating dinner and Natalie asked for more milk. She just had 2 sippys of milk so Jeff was asking her if she wanted juice or water (which anyone who knows Natalie knows she's NOT going to take juice or water...especially when she wants MILK!).

She says...

"No. bleeping milk. bleeping milk. milk milk bleeping milk."

OMG!!!!!!! I'm hoping her using the word in the accurate context is merely coincidental. I almost died! But I had to leave the room because I was laughing so hard. She hasn't said it again, so I'm hoping she has no clue what she said. Or maybe we misheard her (wishful thinking, right?).

Regardless...we're all going to have to be more careful from now on.

Oops.
