A little of this and that....

We're here... just busy I guess. This past weekend we made a quick trip to the Big D to see some family that came in from out of town that we haven't seen in forever. Although we didn't get to spend as much time with them as we would have liked it was nice to see everyone. For those of you that don't know my family its pretty big. My mom is one of nine children and my dad is one of eight children so I have LOTS of aunts, uncles and cousins. Grace seems to love the craziness of family get togethers as much as I do. Although this weekend she was more interested in climbing the stairs then socializing.

On Saturday morning I was craving my usual everything bagel so I decided to go to Einstein's bagels which is just minutes from my parents house. All I have to say is gross! They put some extra seed on their everything bagels that make it disgusting... so I'm staying loyal to Panera Bread from now on.

Last Friday before heading out of town, I brought Grace to the opthomologist (spelling?) to see what we need to do about her clogged tear duct. It was decided after much thought and questioning that Grace will have surgery on her eye. In a nut shell, they will have to put her under, probe the duct and insert a tube in the tear duct. The tube will stay there for 3 months and then they will remove it. The surgery is scheduled for October 1st. I'll post more as I know more.

In other news, Grace has been a delight this week. The last couple of weeks I was beginning to think the terrible 2's were beginning, but thankfully my sweet baby girl is back. Hopefully to stay for a while... because my patience sure can't handle it right now. I blame it on the hormones.

I've been feeling really good the last week or so. AMEN!! I've only gotten sick briefly in the morning, but I am fine once I get something in my tummy. This little one sure is a hungry one! Two short weeks till we find out what we having. I can't believe it! This pregnancy really is going so quickly. I'm also so excited that I have so many friends and family that are preggo too and due within weeks of me. My friend Hailey is due February 18th, my friend Tiffany is due March 4th (I think... her date keeps changing), I'm due March 5th, my aunt Julie is March 9th, and my sister-in-law is due March 23rd. How exciting!!!! What do you bet that they all have their babies before me. For some reason I feel like this little one is going to hang out in my belly longer than I would like.

So I'm rambling now!! Oh I almost forgot... please check out my friend's new blog... MAMAVICE. It is really cool. It's basically a place to ask questions about your kiddos and get some advice from other mamas. Check it out!!

Prayers for Gracie as she prepares and y'all prepare for surgery in the next few weeks!

Glad to see you're feeling good! Can't wait to read what you're having! That's a lot of preggo moms, by the way. I am on a messge board where a ton of moms are also expevting - kinda scares me because I think we're done having kids!

I hope Gracie's surgery goes well!

I think your bagel story is hilarious! Only a pregnant lady could taste the 'extra seed' on an everything bagel. You're too funny!

Good luck on Gracie's surgery! I'm sure it will be a piece of cake!

I'll be saying some prayers for you guys on the 1st!
