Pumpkins with Papa

Josiah and I went to the farmer's market with my parents (grandma and papa). There were some small pumpkins for sale so Papa gave Josiah two dollars to pick out a pumpkin (see the money in his hands). Who knew picking out a pumpkin would be such a serious task. He finally picked his pumpkin and gave the lady the money, one dollar at a time. Thanks Papa for the pumpkin!

Baby Shower






My best friend Danielle threw a baby shower for the little girl coming soon. I had a great time and it was fun seeing friends I hadn't seen in awhile. Thanks Danielle for all you did to put the shower together- you're the greatest!
I feel like I am getting more prepared for the little girl coming, but we have yet to get the room ready. We only have 3 1/2 weeks left! Nick has to finish painting and then it's just a matter of washing bedding and clothes. We can't wait!

Here is a dance Josiah learned from Donald Duck. It goes Hop Hop Shake (that is what he is saying).

Good news about Lisa

The past couple updates on Lisa have been positive.
She breathes every third breath on her own and she's digesting on her own.
The nurses have seen her open her eyes. Rick, her husband, asked her to open her eyes and she did. This is such great news!

I don't think I updated on this but it looks like she did have some brain damage but the doctors don't know to what extent. They won't know until she wakes up. She still has a fever of 102 but they have her on antibiotics for that.

Please keep praying for her. These latest updates have given great hope to her family and friends. We hope it continues to be positive news.

The Boys

Josiah watched this show called "Pinky Doo" once and in the show they go into a story box and she makes up a story. So Josiah decided to make his own story box. It was pretty funny when he asked me to sit in there with him. He does a good job of making up stories though. I guess Elmo was the only friend who could fit inside the box.

This has been a frequent sight of mine. Since Nick has had diverticulitis he's been very tired and in pain and so he needs to rest a lot. Josiah loves to be with his daddy and knows he has to be gentle around daddy when he's having problems. So Josiah will usually just chill out with Nick on the love sac (that's the chair their sitting on and yes that's the real name if you hadn't heard of it). I think it's pretty cute to see them relaxing, usually watching Jeopardy together.

C-section Scheduled

I went to my OB today for a checkup. I am 31 weeks along, the heartbeat sounds great and the baby is in the transverse position. And unexpectedly the doctor scheduled my c-section.
This time I'll be delivering at Lourdes Hospital and it will be on October 26th at 7:30 am. I thought he was gonna wait 5 more weeks to schedule with the hospital but he said we might as well do it now. So that is the date the baby will be due unless of course my OB notices any changes in my cervix. If that happens he'll schedule sooner because they don't want me to go into labor.
So things are moving a long and it's nice to have a date set. Can't wait to meet the little one!
