Hurt ankle...again

Well, when William came home from playing racketball this past weekend, he came in limping. I guess it really didn't surprise me, since he seems to hurt his ankle ALL the time! That evening Mary decided to help him feel better. She said she would get her animal hospital. She used the stethescope, thermometer, tweezers, and even gave him a shot...all on the foot.

Week 37 update

I had my weekly exam appointment today. We've made a little more progress...I'm now 3cm. This puts me just a bit ahead of where I was with Mary. At Week 37 I was still at 2cm with Mary. My next appointment is Monday at 10:45. We might make an appointment next time to induce the week of July 7.

Mary's fun on the farm!

Sunday: They arrived on the farm late Sunday afternoon. She played with her toys that evening.
Monday: She ate breakfast on the patio. After that she went down to the garden to check on the watermelons. For lunch they went to have pizza with Aunt Paige. That evening she played school with Granny.
Tuesday: They went to Houston to get the scan results. They dropped Pa-Pa off at MD Anderson. Granny and Mary went to Aunt Na-Na's work for a little while. Then they went to eat at Chili's. Then they headed back home.
Wednesday: Mary spent the morning at the flower shop working with Granny. They had a picnic for lunch at the flower shop. Pa-Pa picked her up after lunch to take her home for nap time.
Sounds like she's having a lot of fun!!!

Weekend Visit and Off to Farm Camp

Well, it was a crazy week. On Tuesday, Granny and Pa-Pa called to say they wouldn't be able to come because Pa-Pa was going to have scans on Friday. Then, Friday morning they called to say he was feeling good, and they were headed home to get packed up so they could come spend the weekend with us! Aunt Na-Na left work early and joined them. They arrived Friday evening, just in time for supper. We had fun Saturday morning. Pa-Pa headed out to a auction and all the girls went to Trade Days in McKinney and then to the square. That afternoon we went to church and then out to eat. Sunday I fixed ribs and the fixin's for Father's Day. After lunch they got everything packed up, including Mary. Mary is going to the farm for the week. This is the longest I've ever been away from her. Granny will bring her back Saturday afternoon when they drive up for Dallas Market. Mary was soooooo excited about going to the farm. Friday evening Mary gave Pa-Pa his birthday present. She made him some stepping stones.
Mary helped daddy open his Father's Day presents. Aunt Na-Na and Mary hanging out before getting in the car.
Mary was having fun getting ready to go to the farm.
They're off to the farm for the week! Have fun Mary!!!

Happy Father's Day to Daddy, Grandpa Bruce, and Pa-Pa! We love you!!!

What do you think?

Since Mary's little sister is named #2 right now, we'd like to see what you think! Over at the top left you will see a question. Take a pick, if you don't see a name you like, leave a comment and I might add it as a choice! :) After you vote, click show results and you can see what they are so far.

Busy Tuesday!

On Tuesday, I had an all day workshop. So, Amy picked Mary up Monday evening to spend the night and the next day with her. Mary had a good time seeing everyone again. She told me this morning that she missed, Miss Amy, Kaleigh, and Braden and that she was going to church camp to see Elyse. After I picked her up we went to see my doctor. At this appointment all that was done was a sonogram. The first one is a 3D picture of her face. She said she was in a really good position to see her in 3D, so she gave us a little peek. However, the little girl would not put her arm down. As you can see in the picture her arm is covering one side of her face. It looks like she has some chubby cheeks and a little smile. The next picture is of her face using the regular ultrasound equipment. She is weighing about 6 pounds and has a strong heartbeat. I go back to the doctor on Monday for an exam to see if she has started her way to see us.
After the doctors appointment we went home for a quick bite to eat and out to see the opening game of the McKinney Marshals. Mary had a lot fun watching the game and cheering them on.

Learning to ride

We have been trying to get Mary to learn how to ride her bike. She just doesn't seem to get the pedaling thing.

Baby Bump

The baby bump is getting quite large!
