Pregnancy Update - 30 weeks

3D images of Silas @ 30 weeks.

I had an ultrasound earlier this week to check up on Silas' growth and the doctors were pleased with his progress. Everything checked out in the normal range and we are very thankful for the good report. The next step will be some fetal non-stress tests, just as another precaution. I've been feeling mostly good minus some usual 3rd trimester aches, pains, and fatigue. With about 9 weeks to go, I have a growing list of things I'd like to get finished before baby 2 arrives. I just hope I have the energy to check things off that list!

July 4th, 2009

We celebrated our great nation's independence at my Grandma Sipe's house at the Lake of Egypt in Marion, IL. Even though it stormed and rained (poured!) most of the day, everyone had a great time swimming, canoeing, grilling, eating, fireworking, and visiting with family. Good All-American fun!

Nella & Marley waiting for the rain to stop. It finally did . . . at 6:00 pm!

All-American Cutie

Helping herself to some lemonade.

Swimming in the rain.

The way a cheeseburger should be, with a gigantic slice of homegrown tomato thicker than the burger itself!

The works!

Waiting for the fireworks to start.

Literally blowing through hundreds of $$ in an hour. But oh, what fun!

'Ooooh, aaaahhhh'
Nella loved the fireworks!

Oh, and Nella got to play with her favorite car at Nana & Grandpa's house.

Playin' At The Park

We went to Waterfront Park with some friends this morning.
Here are a few photos:
Nella was just fascinated with baby Talmage. It could have been because he's so adorable, or it could have been his pacifier.

Playing on the weird pyramid thing.

Playing with Julianne.

LOVES the slide!
