Miscellany Monday

We had a pretty relaxing weekend!  For once, it wasn't steaming hot outside!!  Friday night, I cooked lots of fresh vegetables that people have given us and my parents came to eat and of course play with Anna Riley.  Saturday, we spent the day at the lake with some friends.  It was very nice and the breeze felt so good!  Anna Riley loved riding on the pontoon boat but loved Allie, our friend's lab, the best.  Allie loved her too because she fed her Cheez-its the whole time!  Sunday, after church, Anna Riley and I took a great nap and then headed to the pool and finished the day with grilled hamburgers and sweet potato fries! 

I must have jinx us when I said Anna Riley was back sleeping good because she is NOT sleeping well at all!! It is frustrating me because she has always been such a wonderful sleeper but now its horrible!  She even fell out of her crib the other night!!  I had debated putting a crib tent but since we are thinking we might convert the bed soon, we didn't get one and also she had not tried climbing out anymore so we held off and well she fell out!  I don't know what to do because I don't think she will do well with a toddler bed either if she isn't sleeping well as it is. After reading and trying to rock her, she will cry and finally go to sleep in her bed but wakes up crying around 11 and she gets so upset to the point she will make herself sick so I get her and guess where she ends up everynight??  I am so thankful for our big bed right now!  But, I want her to be sleeping in her bed again...especially before October gets here!!  Have any suggestions at all??? 

 Everyone keeps asking if we will call her Ava, Ava Kathryn or Ava Kate and we decided that her name is Ava Kathryn but we will call her Ava Kate for short. 

I am 27 1/2 weeks right now.  I have been slacking with my pregnancy posts but I blame it on Comcast, our Internet provider...everytime I sit down to blog, its not working!!  I have felt pretty good but my eating is out of control!!!  I feel so big right now and I am hungry ALL THE TIME!!!  I made cupcakes on Wednesday because I wanted some so bad and what a mistake....I ate 4 in one day!!!  I am not going to have any sweets around this week and hopefully I won't go crazy!  I don't remember being this bad last time!  I have an appointment on Thursday and we get the 3D/4D scan done and also I have my gestational diabetes sugar test. 

Is anyone else ready for fall??  I am SO ready...ready for the cooler temperatures, holidays and football!  Fall has always been my favorite time of the year but this year we will have another reason to look forward to it!   I have been buying a few matching fall and Christmas outfits for both girls and it makes me even more ready for all the holidays!

I am ready for the cooler weather too :)

It seems every time I brag on Carson's good sleeping, he goes through a phase of coming into our bed in the middle of the night. I have stopped trying to troubleshoot and "fix it" and I will just let him in our bed and before we know it - the phase ends. I am not stressing either about him still doing it when the new baby arrives either, like everything else it will just work itself out.

I know that is not the answer you were looking for but I just keep telling Cory "he is who he is and some nights he will need us more than others" and the kids will be used to one another's sounds within a week or so. At least you have a KING size bed!

Can't wait to see a belly picture!
