A Few Things

While driving home from Boise, Bill commented, "I don't think that looks very safe."  I asked him what he was talking about.  He replied, "That goat tied up in the back of that truck." 

Preston and Avery have been talking like babies lately.  Yesterday, Preston said, "Mom, I'm getting kind of sick of this baby talk thing."  (Hallelujah!!!)

The kids all took swimming lessons while they were in Boise.  Carter can actually swim now.  He also thinks he can dive.  But it just turns into a belly flop every time.  Avery and Preston can almost swim. 

Yesterday, I was half asleep for a few hours in the afternoon.  Avery and Preston had been playing so well together for hours.  Luckily, I woke up one time enough to hear, "Avery, don't cry if I hurt you really really bad."  They had been playing some karate game, and he was about to really kick her.  I saved the day.  And they kept playing for another hour or two without fighting. 

Avery hugs my belly many times a day.  Every time she says a prayer, she says, "And help the baby to come out of Mommy's tummy...."  I think she's a little excited about it.  But hopefully, the baby won't come any time soon.  I'm only four months along.  And I might find out on Thursday if it's a boy or a girl.  Any guesses?


  1. Congratulations!! Let us know boy or girl when you find out! :]

  2. I guess girl, it's time to even it out. plus Mary would be thrilled with you I'm sure! Congratulations by the way.

  3. Wow- way to come to the rescue on that one!! I can't believe he actually said that to Avery! Oh brothers. I hope you are having another girl to help you stay away from more of that, and help spread out the girl drama. I hope the baby comes out when it is ready and not too soon or too late ;)
