Savannah Grace is 14 months old

We had such a great weekend. We didn't do much since it was so hot outside but we had fun playing inside. I love seeing SG's little personality come out. She loves to laugh and dance. She is standing alone for a few minutes and taking a few steps at a time but no full on walking yet.

27 weeks (Hello 3rd trimester!)

I am officially in the last trimester! Yippee!! I went to the doctor yesterday and did the dreaded gestational diabetes test. We passed with flying colors! I had to get a 140 or below and mine was 94. Then my doctor got called to surgery while I was waiting for the hour test to be over. So, I had to go back today to finish my checkup. I was so disappointed when they weighed me. I have gained more than I thought! For a total weight gain so far of 26 pounds. *****OOPS*****. With 12 weeks to go, I better chill on the weight gain or it won't be pretty. I have been feeling pretty good except my feet start hurting at the end of the day. Sleeping ok, just takes a while to get comfortable and I have to  get up during the night a couple times to pee. :)

Trying to get my craft on

I decided this past weekend that I wanted to make something for Baby D's nursery. The only problem is that while I have good intentions, I am not a "crafty" type person. I don't have the attention span it takes to get what I want done and I get frustrated when the product doesn't come out the way I envisioned.

So, I started researching projects for beginner crafts. And I really wanted to make a sock monkey. Like this little guy....

But knowing me and my crafting abilities, I knew it would come out looking like this tragic sock monkey...

Or maybe this um, sock monkey??...

So, I decided to paint some letters for the nursery. Try to keep in mind this is a beginner's attempt. :) I still have to paint the inside of the D.

I have a 2nd grader....and a walker!

Two big things happened last week. First, my baby girl who I swear was just 4 years old started 2nd grade!! She is growing so fast and is so smart. She loves to read and is the most sensitive and sweetest girl. I get a little teary eyed when I think about how quickly she is growing. Sigh.

And this is Hayley last Sunday on August 7th before church with GiGi and Papaw

Hayley started walking at 11 months so I have been waiting for Savannah Grace (who is 13 months) to take her 1st steps any day. I think she is more cautious than her older sister. :) Well, last weekend on Aug. 6th she finally took some steps. Of course, I haven't been able to capture them on film yet. But I am sure there will be plenty of time for that in the future.

26 week pregnancy update

I am now almost 7 months pregnant! I must say, it has gone by quickly. I have gained about 18 pounds so far and my belly is really growing fast. Now I need help to get up off the ground and am having trouble picking things up off the floor. Ha.

Getting ready for baby Donovan James!!

We FINALLY got the crib put together a couple weeks ago. Josh did such a good job.
The finished product! We are still deciding on a mattress and baby's bedding. Hopefully soon....

Trip to Nashville on July 24, 2011

We took a trip to Nashville on July 24th. I was 6 months pregnant on this trip! Saturday night we went to a NASCAR race at the Nashville Super Speedway. On Sunday Hayley and I spent the day at Chuck E. Cheese and the park. It was a hot but beautiful day and we had such a good time playing.

And this is Hayley after running around at the park. We got hot and sweaty! :)
