30 Weeks!

It's update time!

I really should update more, but I spend too much time
 as it is on the computer as we get ready for an 
Annual Fall Festival (this weekend!).  I have been helping
 coordinate vendors and keep up with their Facebook page, 
so it feels like there is always an email to respond to, 
a list to update or a picture or update to post!  
Maybe once the festival is over I will feel like getting
 back to blogging... or maybe not.  We'll see!


I am officially 30 weeks and 1 day! 
There have been no major catastrophes to report.  
Blood pressure good.  
Passed my Glucose Test.
My weight is questionable, in my own opinion... 
but the doctor doesn't seem bothered by it (and he is a stickler!).
I have a hard time getting up off the floor (after playing with the girls)...
it's more like a grunt and a roll than anything!  Haha!
And I have some hip issues when I sleep...
but other than that - little to no heartburn!
So far.

Please excuse my crappy picture!

I must say though... this little one has had the
hiccups WAY more than I remember the girls having them!

I'll probably start getting a bag packed in a few weeks,
just in case!  And I am already working on a sheet to 
leave with whoever ends up watching the girls.
With food allergies, inhaler treatments and routines, 
it's best to be prepared so that someone else will
know what to do when Cory and I aren't around!

Before I go... here's a recent pic of me and my girls!

On to September...

-This silly girl turned 20 months old this month!
-She has really been growing... went from the 20th percentile in height to the 75th in just 3 months!
-She really does not like to wear clothes (haha!)... we'll have to work on that now that the weather is getting much cooler!  I feel like I am constantly getting her dressed and she is constantly undressing herself!
-She claims her favorite color is "GEEN" (green) when you ask her - we'll see if that sticks!
-She doesn't like most veggies so we have to hide them in other food, if we can.  Although she *will* eat green beans, chunky tomato soup and asparagus voluntarily.  Hates potatoes!
-If she is upset, she will throw herself on the floor.  A favorite phrase is "want to" - which actually means "I don't want to". 
-Her vocabulary is very large and she speaks in some sentences... but my favorite thing is to hear her sing!  She currently loves "You are my Sunshine", "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", "Happy Birthday"... and "Burning Ring of Fire" (yes, Johnny Cash).  She also likes to hum the "Imperial March" from Star Wars, thanks to her sister and 8 yr old cousin... though she has no idea what Star Wars even is.  :)
-Oh yes... and I can't forget... she has been using the potty for about a month and a half!  She isn't perfect... so she's still in diapers... but she's been filling up her potty charts pretty well!  A much different experience from potty training her sister!
-Her favorite toys are "Cubby" from Jake & the Neverland Pirates (constantly carrying the little figurine around)... as well as a "Wendy" figurine from Peter Pan.  A "Michael" (from Peter Pan) stuffed animal... which she calls "My-all"... and her "Suzy" Mouse from Cinderella.  If she can't find one of them she'll call out, "My-all, where are, My-all?!" - it melts my heart, of course.  :)

Her sister is growing and changing every day as well... definitely the in-charge older sibling!  Though they're both pretty good at holding their own!

Only about 10-11 weeks until they're BOTH older siblings!
