End of September

Not much to update but here are some things we have done in the past week and weekend.

John Lawrence got his first big boy haircut. My regular girl was not available, so we went to a Great Clips and boy did they cut it. It looks cute and people say he looks more like Mason now.

We took John Lawrence swimming in an indoor pool near our house called Bogan Park. I sat out, but Mason and JL had a great time swimming. He really enjoyed swimming this summer; therefore, we want to try and keep it up this winter.

Over the weekend we went to play Putt Putt Golf. It was a great course! Mason and I had as much fun as JL did. It was set under the trees- and so shaded, so it felt at least 10 degrees cooler than it really was.

School is going great! I can not believe how easy a transition it has been for us this year. What a relief. I can tell he enjoys it and is learning too!!!!

I am 30 weeks pregnant as of yesterday!!! I have been looking forward to this time for awhile. Only 10 weeks or less to go. If it is like last time only 5 weeks to go. This weekend JL is going to Pop and GranJan's house so we can get the nursey set up. Can you believe we have waited so long to do this? I guess you do get more relaxed the second time.

I will email pics of my belly next time and maybe some of the nursery once it is completed.


Vacation in South Carolina

We are back from our vacation in South Carolina! This time John Lawrence and I went to the Beach with Mom, Ron, Nina and Kathryn. Mason had to stay in Atlanta and work. We got there on Tuesday and left Friday.

We went to The Grand Cirque (which is like the Las Vegas Cirque de Soleil Show) but on a smaller scale. John Lawrence sat for 2 hours straight and loved it. Especially when the dogs and cats performed. The next day we went to the Aquarium. He really enjoyed seeing the colorful fish and large sharks. Other days, were spent time by the pool and hot tubs.

On Friday, we left and went to visit my friend Ashley and her new baby -Lauren. She is a week old and absolutely precious. JL played with her older brother Luke and had a ball! We stayed there for the day then headed down to Beaufort. My other friend, Jenny had her baby boy Hudson about 2 1/2 weeks ago so we went to visit them as well. Hudson is the "King of the House" after coming into the family of 3 older sisters. He is a beautiful baby!

We left Beaufort on Saturday and I will say it feels great to be home. That is my last car trip longer than 3 hours until after the baby is born!!! I could definitely feel the pain of sitting and riding by Saturday night.

I have a doctor's appt tomorrow and they will be checking my glucose/sugar. I have to drink that awful drink 1 hour before the appt and I will have to give blood as well. I will post another belly picture next week when I turn 30 weeks. It is amazing how much I have grown since the last picture at 24 weeks.


Labor Day Holiday and First Day of School

We had a nice weekend! It was spent at home enjoying the nice weather and John Lawrence.

We went to Interactive Neighborhood for Kids (INK) on Saturday morning. It is a children's museum that features a Doctor's Office, Dentist Office, Beauty Parlor, Grocery Store, Train tables and display, and Firetruck exhibits to name a few. They are all exhibits that are designed to be kid friendly. JL got to do lots of exploring and really enjoyed the train areas.

Today, was the first day of school. JL is really into the tv show Dora the Explorer so he was really happy to be wearing his backpack. He only cried for a short time and then he was ready to get down and play. His teacher said he had a great first day! When I picked him up the first thing he said was "Fun School" He wanted to show me the playground and I asked if he wanted to come back on Thursday and play on it. He said yes!!!! I am really glad he enjoyed school!!!!
