St. Patty's Day

Last weekend, while Mrs. Parks was in town, we headed out to the St. Patrick's Day parade. Here are some pictures of all the fun we had!

This is where Eli spent most of the day, shielded in the stroller because it was windy!

Beads and candy...make Emma quite happy!

Just wanted to share some more pictures. :)

See, I do open my eyes!

And I like my hands.

One of my favorite pictures...just melts my heart.

Sweet dreams.

35 1/2 weeks

I know I have been really bad about blogging lately. All I can say is that my life is quite busy these days. Here's the run down...

*I am now 35 1/2 weeks pregnant. If all goes as planned, Eli will be born by cesarean section on March 26th. That is in 23 days. I feel like there is so much to do and so little time!

*Physically, I have been feeling pretty well. Having a little bit of trouble sleeping and some discomfort every now and then, but that's it really. I have been blessed with another fairly easy pregnancy.

*This week, I returned to work as a nanny at Earth Search (where I was employed until last October). The nursery/daycare opened back up and it has been nice to be back. I will work as long as I can until Eli comes and then take some time off after he comes.

*We are still living at/serving with the Baptist Friendship House. It has been lots of fun and we can't wait to see how God continues to lead us to serve here.

*Emma has been struggling with ear infections since December and no amount or kind of antibiotics have helped. We have an appointment with the ENT specialist on the 12th. I am so ready for this appointment and hoping that if she needs tubes (most likely she will) that we can get that taken care of before Eli comes. We'll see.

*Our dear friends, Kelly and Paul, came to visit us during Mardi Gras. We had lots of fun with them and wore ourselves out going to parades!

That's all I can think of at the moment, but, of course, I have a few pictures to share.

Emma liked this parade because they threw out candy!

We loved spending Mardi Gras with Kelly & Paul!

Today, at 35 1/2 weeks.
