Wrapping Things Up....

Just a quick post to update you all on the status of the baby and Evie. I went to the doc on Wednesday and things seem to be going very well. Right now, according to the ultra sound, the baby is growing right on track and weighs about 6 pounds. If I carry full term we should be looking at another 8-9 pound baby. Healthy and happy hopefully. The only surprising news is that because the baby is sitting so low and because I am already dilated, we might deliver early...this could be the Christmas baby :)
Evelyn is as wonderful as we could have ever imagined and we are so excited about the holidays. She is saying "Santa" and loves riding around at night shouting out the colors of all the Christmas lights and looking at the decorations.
Shopping is finished, wrapping will be by this weekend, and we are ready for this exciting time of year. We hope to be able to share it with all that we love and cherish and wish each of you a calm and happy next few weeks!

We're Thankful For....

The holiday season is upon us and we have found ourselves in a rush to get the house decorated, presents purchased, and things situated for the new arrival. Needless to say, we have been very busy around here! Thanksgiving was a wonderful day full of great food and family that we have not seen in awhile. Evelyn had a great time playing and entertaining and we very much enjoyed her ability to interact with others, giving mommy and daddy a little break. She is growing at amazing rates lately, physically and mentally. Her vocabulary is growing everyday and it has become quite interesting to listen to what she picks up! Just yesterday, her Oma taught her how to properly give her baby a bottle and she caught right on. Now...let's just hope she's as happy about a real baby as she is about the doll...
I am working for three more weeks and then will go on a maternity leave, of sorts, from tutoring in order to adjust to having two little ones in the house. Kevin has started his job with BOK and in just 3 days they have managed to keep him very busy!
We hope that all is well with you and look forward to the holidays and catching up. Enjoy the random pics below. FYI....the last one demonstrates how my dad felt about hosting Thanksgiving :)
