Falling Behind

Geeeez, I thought I would be a lot better at keeping up with this blog than I have been lately but I guess I'll just have to put more effort into it. Come to think of it, I shouldn't be that disappointed. I've always had a hard time with things like journals and diaries, which is essentially what a blog is. Anyway...

Since the last time I posted there's been a few things (read: a lot) going on. Last Tuesday I had my second ultrasound. The main purpose of this was to follow up on the position of my placenta. It was a little bit low the first time around so the doctor (and me) wanted to see how it had shifted. It turned out to be normal and it is high enough where it shouldn't be in the way when Olivia decides to make her voyage. Oh, and Olivia is still a she so BRING ON THE GIRLIE STUFF!!!!
Then there was the 4th of July. We got up really early that morning and drove to Kountze, TX (about a 3 hour drive). It's by Beaumont in east Texas if you've never heard of it. Every year, Koby's mom's side of the family holds a HUGE family reunion...the McDonald Family Reunion. We had fun and got to catch up with some of his cousins, aunts and uncles and Koby's grandmother. I love her! She is everything a grandmother should be and at 81 years old she doesn't miss a beat! I managed to take my camera, but it stayed in my bag and I never took any pictures! I am notorious for doing that. Maybe we'll get some from Glenda (my other mom) and I'll post them later.

July 5th was my cutie pie's b-day (Rosemary). She turned 2 and we went to eat at Mi Cocina. We didn't do anything big for her that day because my parents were going to be arriving the next day and so were some friends of Irene and Philip.

On Friday, Koby worked really hard and started painting the nursery. As you probably guessed I didn't want to go with a flashy color...nothing bold at all whatsoever. I've come to realize that I tire of things like decor fairly quickly and I know if I were to go with yellow or some other color that I'd want it repainted in 6 months. Which I also know if I asked Koby to re-do the paint that soon the answer would be something along the lines of, "Woman! Have you lost your mind?" Plus, we ended up having TONS (tons=7 gallons) of paint left over from the other rooms we painted over memorial day so I could not justify buying more paint when we had about $150 worth of paint sitting in our garage. (We tried to return it but they don't let you return colored paint and we listed it on Craig's list, but had no takers) So to give it slightly different hue, Koby mixed half a can of colored paint with half a can of white paint. I think it turned really nice!

On Saturday we had family time. We "celebrated" Rosemary's b-day at Freebirds for lunch and then planned to meet at the Campbell's house that evening for cake and presents. Of course I didn't get any pics of the cake or presents because I forgot my camera. But, I had a good excuse...keep reading and you be the judge.

This is our baby...Isabella and she L-O-V-E-S to go play disc golf with Koby. She always does really good and stays close. But not this time. Koby took her and Klowie to the park on Saturday afternoon and she must have gotten tangled up in some barbed wire (Austin's Colony in case you were wondering which course). She didn't act hurt and Koby didn't even know that she was injured until he saw that she had two huge fleshy gashes on her chest. Since it was Saturday evening we had to take her to the ER for pets known as the A&M Vet School. They were nice enough, but it was a good 6 hour ordeal by the time we took her in and were able to pick her up. We ended up making it to Irene and Philip's just as they were about to light the candles on Rosie's cake. Actually, to be honest, they waited on us for about 10 minutes. Anyway, dogs are so tough. She has several other scratches on her body, but nothing else that required stitches. So now she had to wear one of my old sleep shirts to keep her from chewing. She's not very happy about this.

Sunday morning we all got up and went to church together. It was extra special because, in case you didn't know, Irene and Philip are getting ready to move to Delaware. This Sunday will be their last Sunday at A&M church. I was really proud of myself because not only did I think to grab the camera as we were running out to church...but I also got somebody (thanks Daniel!) to take our family picture!! So this was we were all dressed up!

Haha, notice how Koby and Philip are matching in their khaki pants and white polo shirts!
Silly boys.

This week has been pretty good and has been going by very quickly. Monday we finally got the crib in and Koby has started to slowly assemble it. Also, Koby was summoned for jury duty and spent the whole day at the court house. Luckily, he didn't get selected because the case was something along the lines of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Not a jury I'd like to be on.

Yesterday I got to hang out with some girls from church over dinner. I was really tired, but I had a wonderful time. I LOVE GIRL TIME! I guess I better get it while I can right?

What I'm ExCiTeD about...

My job had a baby shower for Koby and I today and it was REALLY awesome. I got to see some old friends and got lots of nice things for Olivia...and I got to eat some delicious cake. I'll post some pics tomorrow or the next day.
