Waddling Target **Edited

It's that time of year again! As my friend Jennie says, being pregnant makes us "easy targets" for the Girl Scouts and their cookie selling. I ordered some about three weeks ago and they still haven't arrived....getting a little panicked. I mean, what if she forgot where I live? I need those Samoas. At Bible study we all tell our "highs and lows " of the previous week. I was wondering if the missing cookies were a petty low/prayer request. At the last minute I decided against it but now I'm wondering if I needed the additional prayers?!?!?
**Update: Crisis averted, the cookies were delivered today.

Book Review

Some of you have mentioned that this has turned into Kendall's blog. I don't know if I ever recall a time that this blog wasn't about her but for those of you that need a little more here is a little post about non-Kendall things. I'm reading a book that I really like right now. It's a biography about a woman that spends a year in three countries where she examines a part of herself in a culture that does that one thing well: Italy=eat, India=pray, Indonesia=balance. This book reads more like a fiction and the author is really very witty.
And now a little pity party: I miss being able to paint my toenails (heck, I miss seeing my toes), I miss "normal" clothes and the ability to drink something other than water without feeling extreme guilt, I want some sushi and a glass of wine, today I felt like a slug....with a limp. Okay, thanks for listening just had to send my whining out into the blog world.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

We did a VERY quick photo shoot yesterday at the park. The weatherman said it was 55 but it was SO very cold that we couldn't stay very long. Lorie caught these pictures in the 5 minutes that we were there.

Gushy Cheeks

Here is a very blurry picture of my latest sonogram (3D). Note the little gushy cheeks! You can't see it but she also has hair, we saw it sticking off of her neck, so cute. She weighs in at a whopping 4.5 pounds now. My amniotic fluid did drop a little from 40 down to 38 (I need to look up what unit of measurement they use) but as long as it stays above 36 we're okay. Send up lots of prayers for us, I don't know what they will do if it drops but I'm hoping it isn't bedrest!!! We get another sonogram on March 2. Just three and a half weeks to go, can you believe it?!?!?!

The picture is a close up of the face in profile, she is looking to the right

Updated to add another picture. The monstrosity that we call a double stroller arrived today. We have put off buying it I think that Brian was secretly hoping that I would decide that I didn't need it. As intimidating as it looks I still think it will be easier to push around then letting Kendall walk! I took apart our "old" stroller today and got it super clean...mark another thing off my "to-do before baby arrives" list!

"Hussy Go?"

We had our Jessy here visiting this weekend, what a cool chick she is. Today when we dropped her off at the airport Kendall was really sad and kept saying, "Hussy, Hussy!" and all afternoon she would randomly ask where her "Hussy" was. I, of course, didn't take ANY pictures of her and Kendall together (WHAT WAS I THINKING?). But, Lorie, of course, did and I will get some from her as soon as they are posted.

Lorie took some maternity shots yesterday and here are the few that we (and by 'we' I mean Lorie) have edited.

Happy Heart Day

I love Valentine's Day. I like pink and red colors and hearts. All the magazine covers during the month of February make my heart beat a little faster. I get excited to make little Valentines cards and I want to string paper hearts around my house. Our gift to each other is our Brown County weekend. We go to a 'cabin' with three other super cool couples and have so much fun. We went last weekend and had a great time laughing and EATING like crazy. I didn't take ANY photos but Brian grabbed the camera and caught some Jenn, Justin, and Kendall cuddle time on the couch. These two are so good with Kendall, she just loves them!

Fun Day

Jennie and I took the girls to the circus today. I didn't get many shots of them watching the circus because they were sitting on our laps. Kendall loved the lel-phants and the tigers but seriously hated the clowns. During the clown part she kept her arms around my neck and her cheek pressed against mine. Occasionally she would wave her arm in the air and say, 'no, no, no, no' or 'bye bye'. Afterwards we grabbed a bite to eat at the mall and the girls did a little window shopping. Tonight we go to Brown County, yippee!!

I had a doctor's appointment today so after playtime at Noah's Ark Kendall went over to her friend Anna's house. I am once again hijacking photos from someone else but these are too cute to pass up.

Looks like they had a lot of fun!!

Baby Kate will be here before we know it! I now go to the doctor every two weeks instead of every month (only two more appoinments!) and I get an ultrasound everytime that I go to ensure that my fluid is at a good level. She'll be here before we know it!
