My Wonderful Husband

Yesterday, I was a little upset by something that had happened, so Eric bought me these beautiful Summer flowers to help me feel better. He is so thoughtful and generous, and I love him for it! I could not ask for a better husband or father for my children!

The Hiding Place

Lately, when we put Sam down for a nap (or for the night), we have to search all over the house to find his binky (pacifier). I told Eric that he must hide it so that he can find it whenever he wants it. Then, just yesterday, I was watching him play in the kitchen, and he opened the potato hutch and exclaimed "There you are!". Lo and behold, he pulled out a binky and went to town! ;-)
*Helpful Hint: If you put an apple in with your potatoes, they won't sprout those unsightly "eyes"!

Yesterday, Sam surprised us by blurting out "Daddy, can you play?" We thought that it might have been just a fluke, but he said it again later in the day! He was really asking his daddy if he could play! His vocabulary is quite impressive, but even I am amazed that he is already speaking in complete thoughts at only a year and a half!

New Due Date

My O.B. doc said that, after reviewing my ultrasound and determining her own measurements, she is adjusting my due date to December 18th!

I'm excited, because that means that I'll probably have the baby in time to be home for Christmas!

Also, my next ultrasound is August 4th to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl!

Happy 4th!

I could only get one picture of all 3 kids together, since Sam will NOT be still for a picture! Becca has her flag in front of her face, but at least they're all looking at the camera!

Today is the kids' "official" 2nd favorite holiday! They love BBQ, they love fireworks, and they love staying up late! I enjoy this holiday, because we usually go to a friend's house for the BBQ, someone else does the fireworks, and I can just enjoy everything with no stress or worry! ;-)
