a Gobble...a Wobble...and a Poop

We had a great Thanksgiving this year! We went up to the farm and had a very low-key fun filled day. The weather was perfect and the company was even better. Here are some pics of our gobble of a day. Hope yours was just as blessed!

Playing in the leavesWhile Maggie was napping, we headed out in the Rhino for a ride around the land. We thought this may put me into labor. But, no such luck. Conn made sure to point out all the deer stands. He and Lily even climbed up in one, while Cash and I sat comfy and took pictures from down below. :) Conn was showing Lily where the deer come out of hiding . Then, they played a game of the deer and the hunter. Can you guess who is playing who? :)I thought this was a cute picture, but "hello" crows feet! Can you tell 30 is only a month away? Oh, goodness!!!Lily and cousin CamilleThe boys had bath duty
Today, I am a wobbly 38 weeks. I am feeling good. Cash is for sure a mover and a shaker! I really can't tell if he'll be early or late. Either way, we are ready. I guess we'll see in the next 2 weeks. Stay tuned!

Week Thirty-Eight
  • If he is the "average baby," he weights 6.8 pounds (3083gm)and is 19.6 inches (49.8cm) long.
  • Have you noticed she hiccups a lot? Because there is no air around her, those breathing exercises cause amniotic fluid to get into her windpipe. The result? Hiccups!
  • Your child's intestines are accumulating lots of meconium. Meconium takes on the role of being your baby's first bowel movement -- removing the waste that has accumulated.
  • He may have a full head of hair now -- an inch or more long! Don't be surprised if it's an unexpected color. Some blond couples have dark haired babies; some dark haired couples have red-haired babies; some couples have babies with only peach fuzz! It may just persuade you to take a closer look at your family tree!
  • Circumference of head and abdomen are about the same size for your baby. No wonder it's so hard to get a t-shirt over a newborn's head!

Yesterday, before we left for the farm, we made the girls go potty. All of the sudden, I hear Maggie yell, "Mommy, I went poo-poo in the potty!" Woo-hoo!!! Thank you, Lord!!! We have been waiting for this day that we thought would NEVER come. All four of us stood around the potty and did the poo-poo dance! Oh, what a glorious start to the day it was. I never thought we would be so thankful for poo-poo. Sorry I don't have any pictures of our little party around the potty. I know you were really hoping for some! :)
