Things have been very busy around here. I had my second Dr. appointment this last week and finally got to meet the midwife who will be delivering the baby. She's very sweet and trained with my old one. I really like her and feel comfortable with her. They moved my due date back to mid August now. Could be that the baby will be born on my brother's birthday!?
The boys had their check up yesterday. They are both doing great and hitting their milestones well. For the most part they seem to be getting along together better than they did back before Christmas. They are still ornery but that's boys I guess.
The little peanut hit a milestone today. She pulled herself up in her bed. She was kneeling at the rail when I walked in to get her. I'm really excited because I've been kind of concerned about her development but the Dr. told me not to worry that it was more her personality than a delay. And that seems right becuase she is very laid back and serious. However, Daddy will be lowering her crib tonight when he gets home from work.
Nathan updated our computer with some more memory. I always get concerned when he starts messing with something that is already working okay. In the process, he updated my camera software. Now I can't load pictures from my camera to my computer. You'll just have to wait for pictures I guess.
That seems to be all the new news. I promise not to leave you hanging so long again.

After 32 years of being the same, my daddy SHAVED. HIS. BEARD. NOT COOL! Now, granted I'm not a fan of facial hair on all men. But my daddy has always had a beard. He kept it close but it was always there. Just a part of him. Not changing. Until Saturday.
I was really surprised and shocked by this new development. Some have commented that he looks younger I however am going to have a much longer adjustment period. It's just unsettling to look at my daddy. I liked his beard.
Apparently he's been considering this since Christmas and its a requirement for his new job so he took that as conformation. I'm just not sure how I feel about it. I still love you daddy.
To see the before and after pictures go check out my sister Mama Lily's post.

I didn't post it on my blog because I was waiting for our first MOPS meeting of the year. At our meetings we always ask if someone wants to reveal that they are pregnant. The pregnant lady gets to pick a candybar out of a basket. She can't see what she's picking. Some of candybars have blue ribbons on them and some have pink. This is our highly scientific way of predicting whether or not it will be a boy or a girl baby. Should you happen to pick Reese's Cups or Almond Joy that means twins, cause there are two in the package.
Not only was it fun to see ALL. THE. SHOCKED. FACES...hehe but I also picked the White Chocolate Reese's Cups...prediction... TWIN GIRLS!!!! Wouldn't that be fun??

Now comes the interesting part. Tabitha found this picture in a magazine and copied it for Auntie to take back to WV where she lives and has her shop. Yesterday a bride came into Auntie's shop with her mother with a tiny picture of this exact cake. It was rather small having been printed off the internet. Auntie got out the full page picture to show them. The bride and her mother thought that it was absolutely funny that both she and Tabitha had picked the same cake.
Here it gets one step more interesting. The mother of this bride in WV is going to make the table cloth in the picture and has offered to let Tabitha use it at her wedding. The girl in WV is getting married in March and Tabitha is getting married in May. Auntie will bring it when she delivers the cake. Isn't that amazing???? I think God had a hand in it....and it really is a gorgeous cake!!

Our Christmas was really nice even though we still haven't had any snow...I'M WAITING!!!! The children certainly got lots of gifts and have enjoyed having dad around to play with them. On Saturday we went to zoo. The children really enjoyed it especially JM. Before he hasn't really paid much attention to the animals but this time he got really excited about them. I'm glad we got the family zoo pass for Christmas. The weather wasn't really cold so we weren't miserable but we didn't see the monkeys. AJ is insisting that we go again to see the monkeys. I told him when it was warmer we would go back.
Tonight I have a MOPS steering team meeting and tomorrow is Children's Night at church. I guess it's time to get back to work. Happy New Year everyone!!!!
