Mallory's first day of ballet was today. She LOVED it!!! MawMaw took her for me this afternoon at 1:45, so I don't have any pictures of her first ballet lesson, but I am sure I will have some really soon :) She loves to put on her ballet outfit with tap shoes at home all the time. SaraBeth is taking gym on Tuesdays at 5:15, and she LOVES it too! She can do a really good donkey kick and is working on cartwheels and bridges. They are both having fun!
Mallory's 3 year old class is learning about colors this week ,and today's color is black; Tues.- green, Wed.- red, Thurs.- purple, and Fri.- orange. I know she is going to have a fun week. SaraBeth is learning about the place we live-Kosciusko this week, and she is wearing the colors with Mallory too :)

Your baby is nearly as long as a zucchini, and her eyebrows and eyelashes are thick and lush.Baby's Length: 14.02 in. Baby's Weight: 1.68 lb.
Your baby has settled into a distinct sleep-wake pattern. You may notice that sometimes she's very active and kicking or punching, and other times she sleeps. If you're lucky, these patterns will mimic yours. My 26th week started on Friday, Aug. 26 :) I had my sugar test in Jackson bright and early! Dr. Cole said I passed with flying colors!! Yay!!! My iron is low, so I have to start taking some iron pills :( I did this with SaraBeth too. Anyway, Mary Margaret's heartbeat was good. The appt went well. I go back in 2 weeks, Sept 9. Then I will have a sonogram on Sept 23 at 30 weeks to see how much she weighs and if she has turned (she was breech at 18 weeks). I am keeping my fingers crossed!!

All ready for school today. She loves Mrs. Lauren and her class! They are learning about Pets this week. Well, as many of you know, we don't have any pets at our house right now. So, if the girls do well at their dentist appointment this afternoon, they will each get to pick out a goldfish at PetsMart :) SaraBeth is going to name hers "Goldy" and Mallory told me that she wants to name hers: ummm, Toystory, no maybe BUZZ. I have never seen a child love Toy Story sooo much :)

Mary Margaret is the size of a rutabaga, and her fingerprints have now formed.
Baby's Length: 13.62 in.
Baby's Weight: 1.46 lb.
I go to the doctor next Friday for my sugar test and 26 week appointment. I will start going every two weeks now. That means it is getting closer :) I know Nov. will be here before we know it! I am trying to get baby stuff ready at home. I am hoping to put the bed up soon and will post pics then. I have bottles and most all of the clothes ready. A BIG thanks to MawMaw and Nana for helping me with that. The girls are getting excited and really anxious everyday for the arrival of their new baby sister. We can't wait!!!

Happy Birthday to the BEST MawMaw in the world today!!! She is celebrating it with the girls :) We are having her a pizza party tonight at our house to celebrate 74 years of life. I hope I am doing as good as she is at 74. She has been my #1 fan since birth, and she feels the same with the girls. They are best buddies!!! We LOVE you sooooo much, MawMaw. Hope you have a wonderful birthday and many more to come!!!!
BOTH girls slept in their own bed last night!!! WE are so proud. SaraBeth started sleeping in her own bed last Sunday night before school started. She has been sleeping there every night since. Mallory just tried it for the first time last night. She did great!!! I am so proud of them both!! They will get BIG surprises if they keep this up :) We have soooo much more room in the bed now, and since Mary Margaret is growing quickly and expanding my stomach by the day, that is definitely a GOOD thing!!

Your baby is as long as an ear of corn, and she now notices bright lights and may move in response.
Baby's Length: 11.81 in.
Baby's Weight: 1.32 lb.
You might notice that your baby is very busy during the next few weeks. Right now she's small enough to have plenty of room to move and groove in your belly. She may even respond to your soothing voice or the rubbing of your belly by calming down, while loud sounds or a tap on your belly could cause her to become alert. Also, because the balance-controlling inner ear has developed, your baby can finally tell if she's upside down or right side up, so moving around takes on new meaning.
