Summer Fun

I can't believe it's already July; this summer is flying by! I'm okay with that though because it just gets me one step closer to Silas' arrival. Here are some of the fun activities we've been up to lately.

Family get together at my father-in-law's. This is also the day we learned that Silas would be older than his new aunt or uncle. Yep, Lori, our wonderful step-mother (in-law for me) is pregnant!!! We are super excited that Silas will have someone to play with that's close in age (Baby Elmore is due January 2013).

This is my friend Hayden. Sadly, this was taken at her going away party. Hayden is following the Lord's leading and accepted a youth ministry position in Memphis, so I'm not allowed to be too sad, plus, I'll just have one more friend to visit in that city :)

This is an action shot of Adam being viciously licked by Baxter the dog. Almost every Friday night, our friends, Ben and Sarah, have happy hour at their house. Sometimes it extends out into the community. This particular night, we went to Lowe Mill's concert on the dock and listened to a band whose name I can't recall.
The tower at the Mill.

Adam talking to Silas.

Adam's nieces came to town. They have never been to the south and didn't know our side of the family that well, so we dressed up to fool them.
Creepy Uncle Adam.

Sister Lisa had a big pool party at her house which was so much fun.
There was a lot of whirlpool making, chicken fighting, and spraying each other in the face.

Peyton loves making silly faces.

Reid and Josh dominated at corn hole. I think they won 5 times in a row!

Two of our nieces, Hope and Hunter.

We spent the hottest days of June at Lake Guntersville with the family. It got to 107 one of those days. Needless to say, the lake felt like bathwater, not very refreshing, but still a good time.

Uncle Tim brought his DJ/Karaoke equipment which equaled hours of fun. Here are Cliff and Reid belting out a tune.

Ryan trying out the mullet.

Adam kissing on Silas.

We celebrated Hope's birthday. We had been playing Quelf (awesome board game) which is why she has her head wrapped in toilet paper.

Cheering for Karaoke. I really think every family get together should have this! It would be great for Adam's nieces to move closer to us; they are a lot of fun :)

As you can see, it's been a busy, but fun couple of months. I hope everyone else is having a great summer!

Two Months Worth

I am a bad blogger. It's true. I'm lazy about posting and I am so sorry for that. I do have a lot of pictures and fun things to share, so that should make up for it, right? Adam went to bed early, so I have plenty of time to blog! I could clean my house, but this sounds like more fun :).

Here are 7 weeks worth of belly pictures!

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from week 22 because we let a friend borrow our camera during that time.

Adam took a picture of me changing our chalkboard. I don't even look pregnant in this picture, but when I turn around.....

BAM!! Check out the difference two weeks make! Silas just keeps growing and growing!

I've got to brag on my husband for just a minute. Adam has been really sweet about surprising me with things during this pregnancy. One day, I came home and this dress and a pregancy pillow were sitting on the bed. He picked this out himself...my husband has good taste :) And that pregnancy pillow...AMAZING!!

My belly is turning into a basketball. Thankfully, I can still fit into a lot of my regular clothes, but some are getting a little tight..and short.

And this was taken today. I am officially in the third trimester (yippee!!) and now have to go to the doctor every two weeks. I have also been experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions which give me great opportunity to practice my relaxation techniques we've been learning in our Bradley Birthing classes.

I highly recommend these classes to anyone who is pregnant or seeking a more natural birth; they're a lot of fun. And yes, I am planning and praying for a natural labor, I think I can do it and I'm really excited to try :)

We also had our 4D ultrasound recently and got to see a better glimpse of cute,little,Silas. Here are a few pictures of our handsome boy.

Look at that face!! I don't even know what to think sometimes; it doesn't seem like he is mine. I love those chubby cheeks and cute lips! This is my favorite picture :)

Maybe he will be a musician with those long fingers!

The ultrasound technician told us he is sitting super low in my pelvis (good boy), but is "sunny side up" which could mean long, more painful labor if he doesn't flip (flip Silas!). He is constantly moving, loves good music, responds to his name when Adam prays for him (no joke, every time), and seems to be a happy, chill, little guy. I can't wait to meet him!!
