Awaiting Micaiah

 Thanks to Brittany for coming to help document this special time in our lives!  Hannah Kate had slept for only 30 minutes during her nap time which meant she was in a very into picture taking mood--not so much!  You can tell at the end of the pictures that she was getting delirious!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Hannah Kate loves to play with Wesley's Ninja Turtles from when he was little. Anytime we go in the guest room, she says "TURTLES!" and starts getting them out.  Yesterday,
she played with the turtles for probably 20-30 minutes....shushing them and patting them to go to sleep, loving on them, and trying to hold them all at one time.

Eye doctor

What a day! I had to wake HK up at 7 (2 hours early) to get to the eye doctor-she kept saying "doctors...eyes....doctors....eyes" while we were there and ever since we got home! Her vision is already -1-most kids her age are +1.  He said she will most likely have glasses by preschool age.  We go back in one year.  She slept about 15 minutes in the car and wouldn't stay asleep/go back to sleep when we got home. After lunch, we went out on the four wheeler to look for a calf and she was SOUND ASLEEP within 5 minutes. When we were leaving and I needed to open a gate, she sat straight up and said "doctors! eyes!" Now, it's nap time and she's standing on her head in the crib. Yes....on her head.....saying "night night." YIKES.

Ultrasound & The Best Little Cowgirl

We have had a very eventful day! Ultrasound at 8:30 this morning, stopped at the grocery store on the way home to get food for the dinner before the gospel meeting tonight, came home & went out to check cows. Hannah Kate was a hoot! We were looking for Jeans the cow & HK was yelling "JEANSIE! JEANSIE" til we found her, then we moved some cows, chased some calves, tagged some calves, etc. That all took about two hours-Hannah Kate had a blast. She had a piece of grass in her hand & Wesley was going kind of fast on the four-wheeler chasing a calf & HK was all relaxed saying "gass, weaf gass gass" (grass & leaf)-completely oblivious to what was going on. FUN times on Wesley's day off! (& then after we got in, we had lunch, HK got a bath & down for a nap, & I worked on food for tonight--I need a NAP!)

27 weeks
Micaiah weighs 2 pounds 4 ounces (which was Hannah Kate's birth weight at 28w1d)-50thish percentile.
His heart rate was 136.  He had some funny sounding rhythm to his heart beat and scared us for a minute, but the ultrasound tech watched for a second and realized he had the hiccups. :)

Being a cowgirl is hard work-we thought she was going to fall asleep on the way back!
