Hello Baby

Here's a sneak peek at the newest "Baby Moses" (that sounds so funny) in profile.

Well, I'm 21 weeks now. Went for my ultrasound last week, with high hopes of getting to know the gender, but the little bugger did not cooperate. Legs and knees were practically fused together, and the cord was dangling down between the legs. I really wanted to know, so that I could start making more decisions, know which gender clothes to get rid of, etc. They may reschedule me for another scan in a few weeks, (the tech had a hard time getting some of the pics she needed) so hopefully we'll have another chance. If not, Jacob has an appointment at the IWK in mid to late August, so I'll book myself in at UC Baby or whatever it's called now. I will know the sex of this baby. Brian and his mom think it looks like a boy. Personally, I can't see it. In any case though, it looks like a good healthy baby, so that's all we can really ask for.

Poor Izzy was really looking forward to knowing if it was a "girl baby". When I told her that we weren't able to tell, she said, "When you push it out, will you know what it is?" Yes, Izzy we will know. Kids are funny sometimes. The other day Izzy was asking me why I pushed Avery out first, and not her. I think she thinks everyone was in there at the same time.

In other news, Izzy spent the first full week in July, Mon-Fri 8:30am-2:30pm at "School". They have this program called "Ready, Set, Go" for kids starting school in September, to give them an idea of what to expect in the fall. She loved it! I loved it too. It was so much quieter with her gone, and a fair bit less fighting too. Am I a bad mother for saying that?

Avery and Jacob were gone to camp this past week. They went to Camp Peniel, which is a Christian camp. We dropped them off on a Sunday night, and picked them up on Friday night. They had fun. Avery was a littlee homesick toward the middle of the week, so we paid him a little visit. He got over it. Jake hardly gave us a second glance. It kind of breaks up the summer for me, and them. In mid August, Brian is taking Avery and Jacob to Orlando for "Star Wars Celebration V", and I'll take the other two to Bridgewater to visit with my family. My little twin nieces finally came home last Saturday!! Can't wait to see them again.
