We had so much fun at Braxton's 4th birthday party this morning. The county fair theme was so cute :) SaraBeth and friends held real fish!! They had face painting, popcorn, cupcakes, suckers, prizes and much more. Happy Birthday Braxton! We love you :)

The girls played so hard at the pool. I am so proud of SaraBeth! She is jumping off the diving board and going down the slide by herself now!!!! She is doing GREAT!! Mallory is jumping off the side and swimming underwater by herself too. They have both come a LONG way with swimming this summer. A BIG thanks to Mrs. Chris and Mrs. Judy for the awesome swimming lessons. Bless Mallory's heart. She could not even eat her supper, she was soooo sleepy!
Your baby is as long as a carrot, and his bone marrow is beginning to produce blood cells.
Baby's Length: 10.51 in.
Baby's Weight: 12.70 oz.
Mary Margaret is growing :) I am getting bigger by the day. Part of your baby's growth spurt at this point is likely because his stomach is now equipped to start absorbing energy-boosting nutrients from the amniotic fluid she's swallowing in there. Most of your baby's nourishment is still coming directly from the placenta, though.
This week is a dr appt on Friday. I will be 22 weeks. Can't wait to see Dr. Cole and Tia; probably no sonogram this appt though :( Just listen to that sweet heartbeat.

We had a great time at the Michael and Meredith Fancher's Friday night in West. They had a family get together for some of the golfers playing in the club championship this weekend. The girls had so much fun! They loved playing with so many girls :) Fun night! Thanks to the Fancher's for having us, and we look forward to all getting together again soon.
I love Fridays!! We went to Geyser Falls. Greyson and the girls had fun playing for a couple of hours at the beach, but then the rain came. We decided to go to the movies. We saw Winnie the Pooh :) Then went by Williams Bro. Fun day!!! We had a blast. Can't wait to go again soon!

I had a great lunch today with Ashley and Hollee at the cafe. Ashley was in town for her sister, Aimee's senior pictures, today.... Gosh, I can't believe she is a senior already! We used to babysit her and Lexie... Anyway, we had a good lunch catching up and chatting with Hollee about wedding plans! I am so excited about April 14 :)These two girls were my great friends in high school and are still today. Some things never change :)

Please pray for my mother-in-law. She has been in the hospital over the weekend with some kidney problems. She is currently fighting cancer (transitional cell carcinoma) in her stomach area as well. She needs your prayers for healing, strength, energy, and especially a positive outlook :)
Mary Margaret is the size of a coconut, and her head is now more proportionate to the rest of her body. Approx. Length: 6.46 in. Approx. Weight: 10.58 oz.
She is as happy as a clam in your womb, as her well-developed limbs continue to explore by curling, flexing, and kicking. And as her hair, nails and eyebrows continue to sprout, your fetus is looking remarkably more and more like Mom and Dad every day.
We are getting things ready for sweet Mary Margaret. I am really feeling her kicking around in my tummy now, and it is a great feeling :) We got out newborn and 3 month gowns and onesies over the weekend. I also got some bottles out and put them in the cabinet. The girls are helping with all of this, and they are so excited. Mallory asked me last night if she pushed on my stomach, would the baby pop out?? too funny! Anyway, I am ready for fall... Summer has been fun, but after vacation every year, I am ready for a change. I am ready for football season, soups, cooler weather, and most of all this sweet new arrival in our family :)

Well, I am 19 weeks and 3 days today :) A little over half way there, if Mary Margaret comes early at 37 weeks and 5 days like SB and Mal did.... Gosh, I can't believe it. In one way, it seems like I have been pregnant forever, and then on the other hand, it seems like I just found out....
Mary Margaret is the size of a mango, and she is developing motor skills that allow her to make conscious movements.
Baby's Length: 6.02 in.
Baby's Weight: 8.47 oz.
Here is an update on baby development: Vernix caseosa begins to coat the skin. The greasy, cheese-like white coating helps regulate body temperature and protects your baby's skin while it's submerged in amniotic fluid. By the time your baby is born, most of the vernix will be gone. Your baby's heartbeat is growing stronger now and it's about twice as fast as yours.

Well, we have a name!!!! Our third baby girl will be named Mary Margaret and is set to be here late November :) We had our 18 week sono last Friday, and Dr. Cole said everything looked great. She was growing and right on track! Praise the Lord; we are truly blessed!
Like our TAN lines?
Well, Friday came too quick, and it was time to head home. We all had a great time!!! The slide was definitely the girls FAV thing to do and the lazy river too. We had lunch at Lulu's on the way home. Crab Melt, my FAV!! Then we headed towards KO. We had a wonderful time! Thanks Pop, Nana, and MawMaw for everything and we can't wait until next year. We will be a party of 8 by then :)
I made a breakfast casserole in the condo that morning early. Then we headed to Alvin's Island gift shop for a few souvenirs. The girls each got a new pet, Hermit Crabs!! Oh boy :) Then we went back to condo for more swimming and fun! Pop and Daddy went golfing and then came back and went swimming with us. Fun!! Then we all went to eat at Wolf Bay Lodge! It was the best seafood we had the entire time!!! I had cajun fried shrimp!! Delicious :) Then we went back to Foley outlets for a little more shopping. We got the girls some new swim shoes and some new balances for school and a few fall school clothes. It will be here before we know it!
On Wednesday, we went back to Tacky Jacks for breakfast with the whole crew. Then the men took the SaraBeth and Mal back to the condo for swimming while Nana, MawMaw, and I headed for the outlet mall in Foley. We shopped and got some precious stuff for FALL, and matching 3's!! I can't wait to match all 3 of my girls. We got the baby some cute stuff too. Then we picked up Papa John's pizza and headed back to the condo. Cold Mill Fleet at Bear Point Marina was the next stop! We headed for the dolphin cruise at 3:30. It was so much fun. The girls had a blast and we saw a BUNCH of dolphins. It was great!! We grilled steaks at the condo for dinner. Yummy!!! Super FUN day!!! I love vacation :)
