story time

While I gather some pics from our one-week vacation to the lake last week, I'll leave you with this clip from tonight's story time.

bday party & station #2

Here are some pictures from cousin Katy's (my brother's daughter) birthday party, as well as a few from last week's trip to the Sandy Springs Fire Station.

Kate had an awesome inflatable castle at her party!

And the twins could not get enough of jumping!

Owen planning his escape.

The birthday girl!

And then we visited a fireman friend in Sandy Springs the following week . . .

And Owie got to climb in the truck and drive!

But, El was more interested in petting the "dog" that stood guard outside the station.

We were playing "grocery store" tonight, so my mom gave each of the kids a one dollar bill to go "buy" her a box of spaghetti and three apples. They were so excited to actually get REAL money.

Grandma asked, "El, who is on the one dollar bill? Is it George Washington?"

Eliot studied the bill. Then she smiled, and replied enthusiastically, "No! That not George, that the lawn mower man!"

30 weeks!


I'm 30 weeks pregnant, and still feeling good. Baby boy is already measuring over 4 pounds (the twins were 2.7 and 2.2 lbs. at birth), and is very, very active. I get kicked constantly, and I swear he has a little toe tucked in my right rib. Ouch!

I've really been enjoying the pregnancy, but then, I have a very different perspective than most pregnant women. All I know is that it feels wonderful to still be vertical and not lying down in a hospital bed.

What a blessing. Let's hope this little guy gets many, many more weeks.
