Baby #3 is a ....

We went in for the ultrasound on Wednesday. And its a girl!!! We are very excited and working on our name list trying to come up with the perfect name. Charlotte says that she will call her new sister a boy and name her "Carrot" and Jenny says that we should call her "Baby Girl"...both of which seem about as good as anything we've come up with so far. But she is healthy and measuring within a day of how old the last ultrasound says she is so we are looking at the beginning of October.

I have reached the point in the pregnancy where my hips and pelvis have had enough. So unfortunately it means sitting on my sofa instead of at my sewing machine so I have made no more quilt progress this week. But the painting is done and should get hung above the fireplace tomorrow. I guess its on to crochet projects or maybe learning to knit...hmmm what to make??? I will slowly be working on my sewing when I get the chance but not seeing it going well anytime soon.

Zoey is starting to talk more. It doesn't all make sense but in context she can be quite funny (but we won't tell her, it might encourage her;)) I was getting after her for pinching me earlier and she shook her fist at me and told me to stop it. I have no idea where she hears these things;) Charlotte has started potty training and would probably be all trained if I could keep standing up all the time. She is doing really well and loves to get stickers for her reward. And being the tiny ocd child that she is all the same color smilies must be in a row. We are going to keep working on it and eventually we'll get there right? Her third birthday is coming up in a week so we will be spending this week getting ready, cleaning, and maybe even being adventurous and making our own decorations. At the very least they can decorate the sidewalk with chalk pictures:)

Hi Heather! Congrats on the little girl! I usually have really bad hip/pelvic/low back pain with my pregnancies. With Christopher and Monica it was SO bad. With this pregnancy I've gone to a chiropractor and it has REALLY helped a ton. Perhaps that is something you could try? This chiropractor is really hands on and does such a wonderful job. It has made this pregnancy much easier, especially since I have two little ones to chase just like you.
