So, for my birthday I found out that Laura IS coming this summer! She thought maybe they were going to wait and come for Christmas instead but they changed their minds and are coming in a few weeks! That means we've got to hurry and get Danielle's blessing gown done so we can bless her while they are here. So, everyone write it down, we are most likely blessing Danielle on June 8th. :) We haven't decided yet if we are going to bless her at church or do it at home again like we did with Charity so I will update you about that when I can.
I can't believe my baby is 2 weeks old already! She had her 2 week well child check-up today. She weighed 8lbs 11oz (still 80%) and she was 21 1/2" long! Which put her at the 97%! When I called Dennis and told him, he said we just make tall babies :) Charity is still in the high 90s% for her height. I've heard that on average they are about 1/2 their height at 2 years old and she was just shy of 3 feet tall which means she may be almost 6 feet! Ofcourse that's only in theory and not necessarily, lol. But yeah, we grow 'em tall apparently :)
Anyway, more about my birthday :) It was nice. Dennis gave me my presents in the morning (he was so excited, he couldn't even let me finish breakfast first! One was a book, it was the second in a series. He'd given me the first in the series for Christmas so I'm happy :) And then my second present was the new Stargate Movie! I know, it was only made for tv and it was the finale to the series but I'd heard about it and wanted to see it. Our neighbors had invited us for a BBQ for Memorial Day so he wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to watch it before then. lol. I really liked the present he gave me early too. It was the complete collection of Jane Austen's novels and I actually got to read them all before Danielle was born. Ofcourse, if she'd decided to show up any earlier I wouldn't have. lol.
Then, mom decided to stay for this week so that should help out some. But then next week is gonna be HARD. It'll be Dennis' long week, and to top that off it starts his summer class. Ouch. I'm not sure if he's looking forward to it but atleast the class is only 5 weeks so he'll get it done and over with and then we can have some summer fun. I really want to go to Yellowstone this year (planned for in July) and then we may do some sort of trip for our Anniversary in August but we're not sure yet. I would also like to go camping a couple of times this summer. So, we will see how it goes.
Well, Charity is falling asleep in the high chair. She'd been eating ice cream and then coloring, but it's 4 o'clock! So I should wake her up and entertain her since it's a bit lae for a nap but I think I'll let her rest for a short while so she's happy when Dennis gets home. Cute, grandma just talked her into letting her rock her for a few minutes so that works.
