Both of these pictures were taken July 2008
Peyton still loves to play with all the creatures Daddy brings home!
My husband rarely ever lets me get a picture of him and even though the rod is covering part of his face, this is my hubby doing what he loves.
He is out on the lake as I type this fishing with Michael and Casey. They were going to go crabbing. Set out before sunrise and the wind waves were 2-4 ft instead of the predicted 1-3. They quickly turned around, since a few crab wasn't worth dealing with the waves :o)

38 weeks!!

If all goes planned (and it never does with my babies) it should only be about two weeks before we get to meet this new little bundle of joy. Had an appointment yesterday. We got to check out the birth center. Luckily it has air conditioning, my midwife's office doesn't! My blood pressure has stayed amazingly low this pregnancy. Usually just a little below borderline or just pushing borderline. Baby's heartbeat is good and she is still measuring a week under what should and two weeks under what my baby's usually do!!! The midwifes predicition is that she will be smaller than the boys were but that she won't small. I told her that I don't expect a small baby but something in the 8 lb range would be nice for a change :o) Only time will tell. She is thinking that the change in our diet at the beginning of the pregnancy has helped to keep this one on the "average" (at least we think she is) side of things. Hopefully the predicitions are true.

It is going to take a lot of saving and sewing on my part but I think I can do it :o)

Just a quick update...we are adjusting (slowly) to having all of our kiddos at the same time again :o) Brian hurt his back at work two days ago and will now be seeing the chiropractor twice a week to resolve this problem. Good thing we have insurance that will cover it for a little bit. We only get $500 of chiropractor...until we get up to that amount the insurance will pay 80% of each visit :o)

Yesterday I did something to my back and now it is killing me. Sitting, standing, laying down all hurt. Not so much fun when I have three childrens to carry around. Hopefully it will go away soon.

Had an appointment with the midwife yesterday and baby is measurning at 36 wks (I am week under what I am pregnant and with the boys I measured a week ahead everytime :o) Maybe she will be a little smaller than her brothers :o) One can wish. In other news, my results came back positiver for Group B Strep...something everyone has that comes and goes when it pleases. I have never tested positive during my pregnancies so this will be the first one that I have to have an antibotic administered during active labor. The goal is to get two doses (4 hours apart) to help protect the baby.

That is all for now..hope everyone had a fabulous week and is going to have a fabulous weekend!

When will the Baby come. The person that gets the closest is the winner. Don't know what the prize will be but I am sure I will come up with something.

Peyton was exactly a week late born in the late afternoon/early morning weighting 9 10.5

Good luck.

Contest #1

What are we naming the baby is a question I have been asked over and over again. We have our name picked out and would love it if you guys left a comment guessing the name. Name will not be disclosed until Little Girl comes. Winner will get a $5 gift card. If there is no winner I will do a drawing. If multiple people guess the name I will draw a winner between the correct guesses. Guess the first and middle name. Good luck.

This is what we have spent the last week doing. It has been HOT!!
Casey having a blast splashing water

Oh yeah, Daddy and Casey have been fishing too. This is first weekend that Daddy has had his normal three days off (fri/sat/sun) and it was opening for salmon. The picture is the Kokanee that he got last Sunday. They caught some rockfish and greenling on Friday.
