Baby Belly- Week 27...and more

No picture of the belly this week. I took one, but I just don't feel like posting it. Our Baby-to-be weighs approximately 2.5 pounds now! Her eyelashes are growing and that baby fat is still growing, too. I still can't believe we are so far into this pregnancy. Baby Ellie kicks all the time and I love it! Things have been so different than when I was pregnant with The Muffin and we can only hope that this is a sign that our delivery will be quite different as well.

We had a busy Thursday-Saturday with The Muffin being away with Nana and Pawpaw. I did lots of things that aren't very pregnancy-friendly. The combination of my activities and the temperatures in the low 80's caused my feet to swell, so I tried to put them up a little yesterday evening.

Having snack before Kindermusik.

The Muffin and I had a busy morning with Kindermusik and a visit with Gammy Gladys. We attempted to go to Mc.Donald's for lunch, but after several minutes of waiting in line at the only register that was open, I decided we would leave. The Muffin refused to walk and I had to carry her across the restaurant and parking lot literally kicking and screaming. I took her shoes off when her fit first started so luckily, I didn't have to stop and pick them up. When we made it to our car I had to spend 15 minutes trying to get her buckled in her ar seat while she kicked, screamed and flailed her arms. (All of this after we've been having so many tantrum-free days) I stayed calm and only started crying after we were on our way home. She continued her tantrum for a few more minutes while I cooked lunch and then ate and told me that she loved me. I'm trying to remember that she was away for 48 hours with Nana & Pawpaw, did not have her daily nap and is just totally of of our usual routine. We prayed together after lunch and she apologized for her behavior. I can only hope that she'll feel better after her nap. We're planning on some outside play time while the temperatures are still in the upper 70's. It's hard to believe that just a week ago it was snowing and in the 20's.

Reading Bible stories before bed.

We know nothing of tantrums at our house (total sarcasm!). Ahhh... this age is full of such wonderful adventures. I'm so sorry you cried, though. You're not a bad mom. Every child does this!

Oh come on. I wanna see the belly picture!! I'm so excited for you guys! I can't wait to get my new chair. I think it will be perfect for blogging with my laptop in it with me, don't you? I promise to take care of it and if you ever "need" it you can have it back.

Tantrums at McD's - especially after being with the grandparents - just inevitable!

Love the pic of her at bedtime.

I never tire of looking at pics of Maggie, another little undiagnosed vp miracle!! Caleb is only 14 1/2 months, and oh my goodness, the tantrums. He screeches when he doesn't get his way. I've never dealt with this! Gotta read some books I guess. Any suggestions?
