No Denying

Well, there's no denying it... I'm pregnant. LOL Can't hide this belly! I'm almost 22 weeks. People are always suprised when I say I'm not due until December. Am I really that big??

Ultrasound pics!

Here is a picture of our baby!! Everything is normal! Baby's growth is right on for dates. My uterus is measuring 23 cm but there's no medical reason why. The midwife said I'm probably just stretched out. LOL

Ruby's Kitty

Ruby has claimed Betty as her own. She just adores Betty. Betty is the first kitty Ruby goes after every day. (Poor Betty!) Now that Ruby has figured out how to pick up kittens "by the belly" she carries Betty around the yard with her. Betty even took a bike ride yesterday. :-)

In other news... The week is going okay so far. The girls & I had a lovely afternoon at Tanna's yesterday. I cooked potatoes & kale for everyone over there and after dinner we took a walk in the gardens. The girls helped carry zucchini back to the house. We all came home tired and slept in this morning. :-)

My ultrasound is at 9:00 tomorrow morning. Teagan worked it out so that he can leave camp & come with me. I have to pick him up at 6:30 am, so pray that I can get up on time!! Karyl is going to watch the girls, so that will help a lot too. I will post again tomorrow, hopefully with u/s pics!

On My Own

Teagan & Kordell are off to camp this week! Teagan is a counselor and Kordell is camping. They will be gone until Friday. The camp is just a few miles from here, but feels like the other side of the world!

I am on my own with the girls. Tonight went okay. Ruby was SO tired and crabby that she went to bed early. Jade is headed to bed now. I should be too because these girls don't sleep in.

I'm a little worried about how the week will go for all 5 of us. Kordell got a nasty burn on his leg from the motorcycle last week and I'm hoping he won't hurt it playing games. Teagan is going to be running after munchkins all week and won't take his meds on schedule. I'm alone with the girls (nuff said). And my big ultrasound is on Wednesday in Marshfield. Eek!

I am SO going to need a nap come Saturday!

Ruby's Birthday & updates

We had Ruby's birthday party last Saturday. She turned 2! It was a good party. She had a great time and got lots of loot. Including two baby dolls. I got her a really nice soft doll and Grandma H. got her a plastic baby. Of course she likes Grandma's better. I was really ticked off for about 2 days. Anyway, here are some pics...

In other news... we took the kittens to the Humane Society today and they wouldn't take them. They have a 2 month waiting list for surrenders. Because we fed them, they are legally ours and we have to go through the surrender process. If you call them about a stray and they come pick it up, there's no wait. Funny thing is, I called them while Miss Kitty was still pregnant, BEFORE we fed her, and they said they would send someone out. They never did. I'm a little mad about it. I love all the kitties, and I wish we could keep them all but 6 cats is a lot. No clue what will happen now.

July 4th & Kittens

Just wanted to share a few pictures from the 4th of July, as well as the promised kitten pictures. :-)

Here I am on the 4th. I am 18 weeks pregnant... that's only 4 months or so along. I am already getting big!

Here's Ruby, my little all-American girl. That's Tanna's garden in the background. Ruby loves to be out in the garden & help Noni.

And, here are the kittens!! From left to right: Rocky, Tum-tum, Edgar (blending in with the rug), Hobbes, and Betty. And of course, Miss Kitty being a good mama. They are living on our back porch, eating Kitten Chow and using the litter box. Their final fate is yet to be determined. Ruby loves them, of course, and has tried to strangle them many times. Especially Betty. Poor Betty.
