More updates

We had our fourth perinatologist appointment and ultrasound today. And I am happy to announce that things look great and the doctor was very pleased with where things are at. Fluid is still up and she is still growing, even caught up a bit. Today I am 26 weeks, 3 days and she was measuring about 25 weeks. So very positive! And the doctor is thinking she'll stay put for awhile. And that I will even be able to deliver naturally, which I was really hoping for! So praise God! They still are saying they don't know what's wrong and that they will do some testing when she's born, but I am questioning wether anything has ever been wrong. I truely think that the first ultrasound tech (the one that measured the fluid at 5cm) messed up somehow and it has snowballed everyone into worry and unneccessary concern. Or maybe God preformed a miracle. :) Even so, at least we have concerned doctors and good care for our baby. And we get to see her every two weeks and Tim and I have some time together, just the two of us. So keep growing baby girl! (We are still undecided on a name.)

Birthday extravaganza!

Okay so it wasn't quite an extravaganza, but I think the birthday girl felt special and enjoyed her first (sorta) "kid's only" ladybug party.
She got a new, used, big girls bike that she asks to ride everyday. She made the transition from tricycle to this really well and only had a tad bit of trouble with the braking. And she looks so big!

Tim made this cute ladybug cake!

Our table set up. My sister-in-law organized pretty much the whole party and made this ladybug tablecloth with leaves runner. Very cute! She painted the ladybug in the above picture and organized all the games, made the party favor bags and cute little ladybug visor hats and even did face-painting for the kids! She was so helpful and creative, everything looked great and I didn't really have to do anything except be hostess. So thanks Cori!

After the party, showing off one of big sis's gifts. He loves shoes, especially her dress up ones. We figure we can use this picture for blackmail later. :)

She's 4!

Happy birthday Kaylin!

Saying happy birthday when she woke up.

Here she is in her birthday crown on her last day of preschool.

I can't believe you're four, beautiful girl! I love watching you grow, even though I wish you'd slow it down a bit. You crack me up everyday and have such a sweet personality. I hope you felt special today and know how much you are loved.

Some pictures!

So I have been a bad blogger (well I guess I have been for awhile now) so I'm trying to update with some pictures. It's been awhile since I've had any on here. We aren't up to too much around here, just house projects, as usual, doctor's appointments, and now we're getting into birthdays. (Kaylin's is on Thursday.) I don't have too much to say so I'm just going to keep it short. This will be my picture post. I need to do a post for Kaylin, for her birthday, and an update on the baby.
Making cookies!
