On Saturday, we woke up to snow!! The girls had a lot of fun playing in (and apparently eating) the snow. (Sorry, the pictures are out of order...scroll down to see the snow pics.)
While Cory's family was here over Thanksgiving, we took them to our favorite park (that has a 3 mile biking/walking/running trail). Cory, me, Mom, and the girls all went on a bike ride while Dad, Logan, and Becca walked with Roxy. We had a great time, although it is getting a little difficult to lean over this baby in my tummy in order to ride a bike. I should've had someone take a picture so you all could laugh at how dorky I must have looked. I guess I need to post some pregnancy pictures because I only have 8 weeks left!!! After the bike ride, we watched Cory get some one-on-one coaching from his little brother, or as the SVU students know him, "Coach Mann", the new SVU head baseball coach.
I had a doctor's appointment on Monday. Everything looks good. Hailey is 2 lbs. 4 oz (or 14, I can't remember) right now. Passing the 28 week mark was huge for me because that is when Clairisa was born. I was really nervous to go to my appointment on Monday because I was so afraid that something was going to be wrong. But, all is well. I feel great, although I have been chewing on ice like crazy and getting really sleepy during the day but the nurse just called me yesterday to tell me that my test results show that I am anemic, so that explains a lot.
The other night when I was tucking Katelund and Cloey into bed, Cloey asked me, "Mommy, is Hailey going to leave us to go to heaven like "Clairlissa" (that is how the girls say her name) did?" I told her that we never know when we will be sent back to heaven, but I have a feeling that Hailey will stay here with us.
And one more random thing that I just HAVE to share with every mother out there. The other night, Cory and I were doing a google search trying to find a remedy for night coughing (Cloey has had a horrible cough ever since her swine flu vaccine, go figure). We found this crazy idea that is kindof odd, but works AMAZINGLY! You put Vicks Vapo Rub all over the bottom of their feet and then cover them with socks. It seriously works!!! Has anyone else ever heard of this?
