Miscellany Monday

Doctor's Appointment:
We went to the doctor today and we also got the 4D done again.  I was so amazed at how much she looks like Anna Riley's 4D, you can go here to see ARs.  Ava Kate was still not wanting to cooperate very much but at least we got to see her face a little more. She kept her hands by her face the majority of the time. I am 31 weeks and 4 days but I was measuring 33 weeks and 5 days.  According to her measurements her estimated weight is 5 lbs. 5 oz.  But, Anna Riley also measured 1-2 weeks early and always measured big as well.  She was a good, healthy 8 lbs (a week early).  Dr. Poist said that she was just healthy and nothing to worry about and everything would stay the same as far as my due date and c-section date. 

I love the sweet feet pictures!  Her feet are crossed at her ankles.

 We made progress on the nursery this weekend.  It is starting to come together.  It is all painted, furniture together and bedding on.  Now we are waiting to get the curtains in, order the painting for the wall and find other things for the wall and get a light fixture installed.  The closet organizer is being installed tomorrow so I will be busy putting away tons of clothes! 

I love the weekend...doesn't everyone?!  I love getting to spend quality time with family and friends!!
Friday night, I went to dinner at the Tin Top with my friend Bethany.  Our meal was wonderful and I was so glad to get to catch up with her!  I am very thankful for a husband that gives me girl time and doesn't complain! :)
Saturday, Riley spent most of the day getting things finished in the nursery.  Anna Riley and I got out of his way and went to the mall and Target.  Anna Riley played outside most of the afternoon after her nap and Papa Doug came by for a visit.

Later that evening, my parents and aunt and uncle came by to visit after they finished eating.  Anna Riley is crazy about her grandparents!!  She gets so excited to see them! 

She loves playing with PawPaw's whiskers!! 

And my Dad got her started doing "eskimo" kisses. 

She is giving Granna an eskimo kiss

Moving up:
Sunday was promotion Sunday at our church and so Anna Riley moved up to the next class.  She is just getting so big, so fast!!  I was worried because she just started doing better in the class she is in, and then we were going to have to move her but she did great Sunday! 

Toddler bed update:
Anna Riley is really doing great with her toddler bed.  I am so glad that we made the decision to convert her crib!  Not to jinx anything since I seem to do that, but so far she seems to like it and sleeps much better.  Sometimes when I mention its nap time (especially if she is really tired) she will go in and just lay down...wish it was always that easy!!

I could cry over the picture of AR and your dad! There is really nothing quite like seeing your parents with your children...just warms the soul!
