Two Things Tuesday
1. I snapped this shot of them yesterday afternoon while they played with the little purple car our neighbors brought over. They had the best time, and we have the best neighbors. We are happy to hold onto the car and the neat rocking airplane for them until they have new little ones arrive in their own family :)
2. This morning, my parents arrived before the children were up for the day so that The Husband and I could make the trip to my specialist appointment in Houston. It was a great appointment and Baby #4 is doing really well :). The doctor has high hopes that I'll make it to at least 36 weeks (10 weeks away), so that was great news.
We got to see the baby kick and squirm and open and close his eyes. He also had the hiccups for much of the time we watched him. It's all so neat to see.
He weighs about 2 lbs and 2 ounces (which is nearly a pound ahead of schedule, and all of his measurements look good.
We saw his sweet little face again, and it nearly took my breath away.
The Husband and I stopped on the way home and had lunch at Cracker Barrel. Good grief, it was yummy, but we both passed out in a food coma when we got home--not good--, and it was so hard for me to get up and, you know, do the mom thing of taking care of kiddos. He and I will both be having our super-food protein shakes tonight for dinner to help us feel better!
