So, once again, I have been terrible at updating the "baby" blog. I have SIX days left of school, and that, to be honest, has been all consuming. But, we had a great long weekend . . . we just always wish we had longer :)!
Thursday, we had the most amazing dr's appointment. We had a long ultrasound where we looked at the baby's bladder, legs, brain development, heart, stomach, even the umbilical cord! It was completely amazing. Baby is just about a pound (which makes me feel a little better about the 7 I've gained!) Here are the latest pictures . . . notice the cute little foot (kind of hard to tell, but it's picture #4)!
Friday, Philip and I played in a tennis tournament here at school. Unfortunately, we didn't get to play on the same team, and we both lost to the same team in the 2nd round :(. Oh well.
Saturday was the real highlight of the weekend. After a morning of chores and errands (Philip has become quite the domesticated husband, mowing the lawn, raking the leaves, spreading fertilizer--it's quite cute), Philip took me on a surprise drive through the Hill Country. It is really beautiful here in Austin. I know so many people think Texas is flat, but in fact, Austin, and the surrounding areas, are very hilly, lush and surprisingly green for the lack of rain we've had. We drove out to Fredericksburg, one of our favorite spots, and had dinner at a restaurant there. At dinner, we had a great time, made better by a certain envelope we received at our doctor's appointment on Thursday. We opened that to reveal that . . . IT'S A BOY!!! Neither of us were surprised by this revelation, but we are so excited and now we can start really planning!!
Sunday, we went to a crawfish boil with Sarah and Peter at Lily and Brandon's house. There were about 15 kids there, and we got a little glimpse into what it must be like to run after a kiddo. They were all adorable and we had a great time.
We did get a new camera, and we have started to break ourselves into taking more pictures, so I promise a few updates of the house, and us soon (although the baby pictures really are a lot cuter!)
Hope everyone is having a good week . . . SIX more days!!!!
