We try to hide the markers. . .

but she always finds them. Even at Mammy's house!

Yesterday I had an OB appointment, Joe and I were able to see our little one via ultrasound. It never ceases to be an amazing thing to witness such a tiny life living and growing at such an early age. In four weeks, the baby has grown from about the size of a gummy bear to now the size of lime, about 2 inches. At such a small size, we could tell that it was sleeping and then it woke up after a little pushing and prodding from the ultrasound machine. It started kicking it's tiny feet and moving all around. We could make out a profile and see it's heart beating away. We are in awe of God's miraculous creation.
Hope you have a happy holiday weekend, we are looking forward to celebrating our nephews high school graduation and Joe's birthday a little early. It's going to be a hot one, but we've already broke out our sprinklers and wading pools. And, we've emptied a bottle of sunscreen already!
The end of this weekend brings the end of the school year and the beginning of our new home! I'm so excited to move in and show you all around.

OH man, at least she draws with them.. Gage eats the tip off the Crayola's. They do have Crayola in US right?

I think she and Amazra are kindred spirits! Amazra could have an entire room full of paper and coloring books and would still color on herself!!! And she helps herself to the markers as well... no matter where they are!!! Congratulations on the "lime" :) I've been thinking of you and praying for a healthy pregnancy frequently this past week as I am getting jabbed in the belly button and such from Chaisek... hope the first trimester uckies leave you if they haven't already!

Oops!!! Why is it that little ones are so drawn to markers (pardon the pun! LOL!)

Hope you had a great weekend!
