Great Summer

It's been far too long between posts, but we're having far too much fun this summer to take the time! Things continue to go well with the baby. Our appointments are picking up pace, but they seem productive. Our most recent fetal echo was last Tuesday and they said they got some really great pics of the baby. While it's always great to be reassured that nothing has changed...nothing has changed. And while most moms (including me) thought weekly ultrasounds would be a dream, the doctors quickly zoom in on the baby's heart and continue to look only at his heart. I want to see his little arms, legs, face. I am getting more and more excited to meet him. And so are his brothers. Ty says I look like Santa Claus and is asking if future plans are before or after our brother comes.
The boys have been absolutely delightful this summer. Although their strong personalities can conflict, they genuinely love each other and are at great ages for playing together. I have included some pics from our most recent adventures from camping in the Yellowstone snow, visiting the rodeo in Cody, WY, and fun at Lagoon. Not many kids can say that they took a summer vacation that included a blizzard and a 90-degree day at the amsusement park...what a weird week it was!

20 Pounds, 10 Weeks

Another good appointment this morning. I've officially gained 20 pounds now (yikes!). But there's only 10 weeks left to go (wow!). We have appointments every other week with the cardiologists and my two OB's. I was told to enjoy the break today because starting in four weeks we will start once a week check ups and stress tests...lovely. I'm also told I have to stop traveling in about 4-5 weeks because it's just too risky if I have to deliver this little center of attention somewhere new. Bummer. Oh well, we'll pack it in while we can and spend the rest of the summer in the pool trying to look incredibly buoyant.

Love you!
