This is our family picture from the Branson trip in September. I love that cabin. Violet and Evie have already grown so much sense then. Josh's whole family is going up there this week end but we can't go because of a retreat he is doing with the college ministry at church. I wish we were going.
We just got back from our trip to Florida on Sunday. Josh's parents went with us and we had a great time. We only had time for two parks, Universal Studios and EPCOT. Evie was such a good girl. Friday it was a little two hot for her so she wasn't very happy but the rest of the time, including the plane rides, she was great. I can't wait to go back again when she's a little older.
I love being a mom. Evie is so sweet and beautiful. We had a rough start but now we're great. This last week she has started sleeping through the night(6-8 hours). I can't believe it. She sleeps either on my chest or right beside me and when she starts waking I'm almost excited to get up and nurse her. She is crying so I will write more later.
Micah Anne is Josh's sister's baby. She turned one on May 16th and her party was on the 17th. We got her a baby doll and she loved it. She kept kissing and hugging it which made us think that she will really love Evie once she gets her. Micah really favors her mom, who looks a lot like Josh, so I think there's a good chance her and Evie will look alike. Evie is going to be so lucky. She will have Micah who is only a year older than her and Violet who is about 2 months older than her. She'll also have two big boy cousins, Jackson and Tucker, to protect her and one big girl cousin, Veronika, to teach her all the "girl stuff".
I went to the doctor yesterday and he said two important things. First of all, Evie has dropped. He said this is good because it is suppose to be the very fist thing that happens in the delivering process. He said it is called engaging. This made sense to me because for the last week or so Evie hasn't been kicking my ribs. Secondly, he told me if he had to guess he would say we will go full term, meaning I have still have a whole month to go. Considering mom went two weeks late with all three of us, this news is probably pretty accurate. I was kinda hoping she would be ready to come a little early due to how bad I feel, but I would rather her come when she is ready even if it's several weeks late than come early and have any problems.
