Birthday Parties!!!

This past weekend Corey, Ethan and I were able to meet up with both of our families for some birthday parties. Saturday evening we headed to a park in Berrien Springs to meet up with Corey's family for Craig's birthday. The weather was perfect and the playground was awesome. The kids had a blast playing all evening.
Sunday evening we headed to my sisters for Annabelle's birthday party. I was not as picture happy I guess on Sunday as I did not leave with as many pictures. Annabelle got some awesome presents and enjoyed playing with her cousins.
We are so thankful for family and being able to celebrate their birthdays together. Happy Birthday Annabelle and Craig!!!

Baby Girl

Our baby girls room is finally under construction:)!! We picked up our crib and dresser this weekend and got the painting done. We still have the dresser to put together and some other odds and ends to finish the room. It is so exciting to get this process started as I was starting to feel like we were running out of time. We still have lots to do but at least she will have somewhere to sleep if need be. We have another ultrasound on July 31st to check on the status of her kidneys and to see how big she is. I am measuring further along and at the last checkup my blood pressure was a little elevated so hopefully the ultrasound will help the doctors know what is needed for the both of us. I can not believe that she will be here in 75 days but most likely less!!!!

18 months

Ethan is now 18 months and is Mr. Independent. We had his checkup today and he weighed in at 23lbs 9oz (20th percentile) and 34 1/2 in tall (90th percentile). He is growing on the same track since birth and seems to be doing great. We are finally in the habit of brushing our teeth. Corey and I have been doing the brushing for the last however long with only tears from Ethan. Ethan now loves to brush and floss I might add. He is a stinker to get pictures of since he thinks he should be the one snapping the pics. Ethan stays busy running all over the house, riding in his car, pushing his mower, blowing bubbles (or eating them), reading books and building blocks. We are enjoying our time daily because I know in a few months it will be a little harder to have this one on one time:)!

27 weeks and counting...

It is hard to believe that I am starting my 3rd trimester!!! My how time flies. I am not ready for this baby girl to come at all, good thing I have three more months. I am working on picking out some fabric for the curtains and bumper, who knew the fabric store could be so overwhelming. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday so hopefully everything is still great. I feel pretty good and love feeling her kick-its so amazing!!

4th of July weekend

I started off the weekend on Friday celebrating my Mom's birthday. Corey and Ethan stayed home because Ethan had a belly ache and fever . It was weird going to a family thing without them but I think they had fun playing at home. We had a great evening of grilling, pool and presents.

Saturday, Corey and I stayed home and had our own little cookout. It was nice just being the three of us and relaxing. We watched our neighbors fireworks from the deck and were amazed that Ethan did not even make a peep!

Today we enjoyed a beautiful day outside playing in the sprinklers and the yard. I am so thankful for my family and the great holiday weekend we could spend together.
