We have a Dr.'s appointment this Wednesday...another ultrasound, another non-stress test, and a Group B Strep Test. Woo hoo! Can you sense the excitement? I always look forward to the ultrasound, because it's nice to see how big she is getting. Wednesday will be 35 weeks, so that just means one more week after that and we will probably induce. I would like to go to 37, but that is up to the Doctor. We shall see if I pass all of my tests! Hope everyone has a great July 4th weekend...I will be watching fireworks on TV I suppose! :)

I made her letters, to try and match the swirl in the bedding...
The quote on the wall says, "Such a big miracle, for such a little girl"
It's a wall transfer from Hobby Lobby, thanks Grandma!
I made this canvas, after I found one I liked online and someone was charging $50!! :)

This bed rest stuff is hard to get used to, especially when you feel okay. I really wanted to get some more shopping done before Emery comes! grrr. I hear Hobby Lobby calling my name, am craving one heck of a Chinese buffet, and would love to do a lap at the mall....at this point i would take the "hall" in Nacogdoches. For all of you non-SFA'ers...the "hall" is Nacogdoches sad excuse for a mall that is outfitted with a Belk, Beall's, JcPenney, Radio Shack, and Bath & Body Works. Okay, you can stop laughing now.
I'm writing this at 7:15 a.m. and Trey is settling in to his new routine. Daddy has left for morning workouts at school, and Trey knows to come find me in bed and we watch Disney until Mimi comes over. Can we just say about 10 Thank-You's to my mom right now. First off, let me say this...I'm not the neatest. I'm not an absolute slob, but when I have a choice between playing with Trey and doing a load of laundry, you can guess who wins. So, for the first time in who knows how long, my laundry is caught up! My house is dusted. The dishes are clean. Pantry is organized. Some people may not recognize my house! :) Trey is also very excited because Grandma and Papa are coming Thursday night. Hopefully we will have Emery's room all done by the time they leave. We just have to paint under the chair rail and get some stuff on the walls (hence the reason Hobby Lobby is calling my name!)
I'll post pictures of her room, and some of Trey as soon as I get my camera out of Joe's truck. It's in my hospital bag, and we are to the point where that goes with us to the Dr., just in case! Well, stay tuned...hopefully I'll get some pictures in the next couple of days! :)

P.S. A special thanks to my mom and Joe for picking up the slack. FYI...it really isn't that fun not being able to do the everyday mom kind of stuff...My mom has been coming over and getting loads of laundry started and cooking. Joe made a special trip to IKEA (with Trey in tow) to get Trey his own chest of drawers because we were still using the drawers that came with his changing table (that needs to go in Emery's room). He then spent last night putting it together, only 2 find out that 2 pieces were missing!!! That required a special trip BACK to IKEA this morning to get the pieces that were SUPPOSED to be in there in the first place....no, we weren't annoyed at all! :) It just required reciting the Serenity prayer a few times! :) Thanks Daddy for putting that together.

We had to clean our hands off! A very brave moment...
Needless to say, we had a great time with the Brewer clan...always do. Unfortunately, Daddy didn't get to join us this trip...we are hoping we can make one last day trip down to Surfside before Miss Emery arrives, so that Daddy can witness Trey's bravery. Hope you enjoy the pics! Until next time!

So, on for the fun part of the week! Trey, Mommy, and Mimi are going with the Brewer's to the beach!! We are going to Surfside, which is always fun because that is the beach I grew up going to. Brings back lots of good memories! Trey seems excited, but we shall see...last Summer at the beach, he wasn't quite sure of it. We are staying overnight at a beach house and will head home Thursday afternoon. I will definitely post lots of pics, so stay tuned.
Friday I have a Dr.'s appointment where I meet my new Dr. (refer to old post where I talk about my OB/GYN leaving for Dallas one month before I am due)...the new doc has big shoes to fill, so it should be interesting! :) After that, Joe and I get an afternoon/evening away to celebrate our 5 year anniversary! We can't really travel, so we are going to check out what the real Houston has to offer...the real Houston is outside of our Cypress zip code! :)
We hope everyone is enjoying their week, and check back soon for some pics!
