Our last weekend...

   This was our last weekend as a family of 3!  We are so excited that our little family is expanding and soon we will have two precious girls.  But, there will be a lot of changes, especially for Anna Riley.  She is really too young to understand what is going on but I think she already senses that things are about to change a little.  This week has been pretty difficult with her.  She has been acting out a lot more and her the tantrums have been horrible and frequent.  I know that a part of this is due to the fact that two of her eye teeth finally popped through and I am pretty sure the other two are not far behind because they are look swollen and a part of it is just simply the terrible twos entering at full force.  But, I do think she senses change.  I have also been a little emotional thinking about the alone time I spend with AR coming to an end but I am overjoyed thinking about all the fun things that are to come with my two girls!!  Hopefully, adjustment will go smoothly for all of us! 
    We wanted to plan a few fun things to do with Anna Riley this weekend.  So, Friday, Riley took a long lunch and we went to the Barnyard and to Jalepenos for lunch.  I could tell a big change in her since we took her in April.  She loves animals and knows all their names now.  She was so excited and just ran from one animal to the next.  She was saying the sounds that all the animals say. She loved riding the pony and feeding the baby pig with the bottle.

Saturday, she woke up with a little cold. We took her to the Airport Park in Northport, so we could watch the small planes land and take off. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see too many and the wind was blowing too much to stay out there too long. I think most of the planes had probably made their way to Gainsville for the game. She did get to play on the playground for a little bit and then we headed to Chick-Fil-A to play for a while.

When we got home, we played in the yard with Maggie, one of our neighbors. 

These two are 4 months apart...I predict they will be getting in lots of trouble together when they start school!

They were having a yard sale and Maggie's two older siblings set up a Lemonade & Cookie stand that the young ones decided to take over!  When Anna Riley went down for a nap, I went for a much needed prenatal massage and pedicure...so relaxing!!  :)

Saturday night, we celebrated Granna's birthday and went to Cypress Inn to eat.  Anna Riley was still not feeling all that well and her feelings were on her shoulders so everyone pretty much took turns taking her to see the fish.  She was just pitiful and anytime anyone would say anything to her she would curl her bottom lip and start crying.  I had made dessert, so they came back to our house to eat dessert and so Mom could open her presents.  After all of that, it was game time!!

Today, we are just laying around.  We decided to stay home from church since AR didn't feel well and none of us really slept all that well. 

We had a wonderful weekend together and I can't believe that next weekend we will be a family of four!
