and still counting!  I woke up this morning to an email that said, "Today is your due date!"  Like I didn't know?!? I went to the doctor today and no progress.  I go back on Thursday for another ultrasound.  It has been fun seeing people's face when they ask when I'm due.  No one expects you to say, "today."  I'm still hoping and praying Chaz will come on his own (SOON), but want to make sure he's a healthy, happy baby so I'll continue to waddle and countdown the hours for a few more days.  Thanks for your thoughts and prayers... I'll be sure to update soon!

The days are getting long around here!  We are officially in single digits till the due date... and I am SO ready!  On the way to church this morning, I told Ryan we had to find something to do this afternoon to keep me busy.  Problem is... I don't have the energy or desire to really do anything.  Well, Lou Ann called after church and said that she and the kids would come meet us for lunch.  Of course, any chance I can get to see my kiddos- I'm all about it.  While we were eating, Ryan mentioned fishing and Mattie and Reid got excited!  We have a pond in our backyard so of course I was in... only a few feet from the house!  We only stayed outside for about an hour- which was perfect for all of us.  Can't wait till Chaz is here to go fishing with his cousins!

Mattie caught a fish!

Reid didn't want anyone to help him but Ryan.

New Friends

This is what happens when you let your husband have the camera.... I just uploaded some photos to my computer for work, and while I was going through them, I realized why Ryan NEEDED my camera ASAP the other day.  Here are our new friends we've been seeing in the yard.  These pictures were taken from inside the house looking out on our front lawn.  Oh the joys of living in the country! :)

Happy Birthday Reid!
