Yesterday was my 26th birthday -- thanks to all of you who sent all the birthday wishes! I had a great day. JP worked from home most of the day, so we got to spend a lot of time together as a family. My sister stopped by with flowers, a card and strawberry concrete mixers from Culvers (my favorite!), and Margie and Ava dropped off some balloons, some toys for Rae, and some YUMMY desserts!!!!! So it was a fattening day. :) I'll just blame it on the baby.
Speaking of the baby, I also had another check-up yesterday. Everything continues to go well. I am 27 weeks along now, and everybody commented on how I had "really popped" this month. :) Yes, it's true -- I am looking (and feeling) more and more pregnant every day. But I will not complain -- my sister-in-law, Lisa, is now 35 weeks along with the twins. Starting Monday she will be considered full-term and they will take her off of bed rest and her meds. At that point it could be babies at any time, but if they're not here by the 3rd, they're going to induce. So stay tuned!!!!!!
We also got the good news yesterday that Israel is clear to hang out with other kids again! My sister-in-law's pediatrician said we just need to make sure she's not sharing cups or sucking on toys that other kids are using. We'll be so happy to get back to playing with our friends again! I think Rae was starting to get a little bored of me.
Here are some pictures of what we've been up to in the meantime.
