31 Weeks

I know I always say this but it is true...I can't believe how fast the time has gone. We are just 8 weeks away from meeting baby Paxton! He will be born September 24th- the c-section has been scheduled. I have to say that even though it is very uneventful to already know the date and time of birth, there is something comforting about being able to plan and make arrangements. Especially with two other kids at home. Now childcare can be lined up and family can mark it on the calendar and meals can be frozen. Toes can be painted and one last trip to the hair stylist for a cut that needs to last at least 8 weeks or more. And maybe I can even splurge and get a house keeper to come the day before! Eek! That would be icing on the cake. I still have a list about a mile long that I would like to complete before his arrival. We currently are trying to convert the office to a playroom and the guest bedroom to Vimmer's new toddler room. Paxton will be moving into Vimmer's nursery and eventually the plan is to have the two little ones share a room in about a year and a half. I know many people are successful at putting a newborn in with a toddler but I am just not ready to bite that off. Especially since Vimmer is such a light sleeper.

The pregnancy has been really uneventful and easy this far. They were so worried about Vimmer coming early, since William was 6 weeks early, that the doctor wanted to do all these check ups. This time though I have hardly seen the doctor, I haven't had an ultrasound since 20 weeks and besides a few leg pains and fatigue things have gone just boring. Which is exactly what we want out of a pregnancy! I plan on doing one more post right before the baby gets here! We appreciate all you prayers and support!

4th of July at the Frio River

Every year we are invited by close friends of the Head Family to property on the Frio River for 4th of July. I was slightly concerned about this year...being 6 months pregnant and having a 16 month old running round...camping in the heat just wasn't sounding real appealing. Well, God had mercy on me and as many of you in the south know, we had a tropical depression/storm bring tons of rain in and some cooler weather. Although it rained on and off while we were there, I think it would have been much worse if it had been 100 degrees and no rain.

I did go prepared though and we took our rain boots.

And as you can see my sons didn't want to stay out of the rain and mud...they wanted to play in it.
You can see in this picture that Vimmer has lost his boots and is in his pajama bottoms and socks. Needless to say, we threw the socks away. No amount of bleach would have got those babies clean.

Fun in the river.

Vimmer loved to ride/drive the mule.
On Saturday, we put together a float and join the Leakey 4th of July parade.

Enjoying some fireworks...Fletcher is not a fan of the fireworks so he stays close by when they start going off. Hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July!
