What's today?

I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since I updated!

Well last week we were all sick. We had something going on with our sinuses. Sneezing, coughing, we lost our voices (mine still isn't 100% back), trouble sleeping. I spent one night in a recliner because I was coughing so bad. Last night Drew was up coughing a lot. We're just a healthy bunch! I'll be glad when this season is over!

I went to the dentist last week for my 6 month cleaning, and went back today for the last of my dental work that I needed done. Hopefully that's it for a LONG time!!!

Taylor is doing well. Cute as ever and still talking up a storm. I'll try and see if I can get it on video, but when we sing Old McDonald, during the e-i-e-i-o part, she says YAYAYAYA (which is her e-i-e-i), it's too funny.

Holden graduated from obedience class on Tuesday. We had a mock obedience trial with a judge that came, and he placed 2nd out of his class of about 15! I was very proud of him. Of course getting him to listen at home is a different story, lol.

I don't know if I've mentioned it or not but we've been planning a trip (Taylor and I) up to Nebraska to see my Grandma Ivy and Grandpa Ron. I haven't seen them in years and years and of course they've never met Taylor. Drew is saving his leave for a wedding he's going to next month and for when the bean is born. So Taylor and I are leaving next Tuesday to go up to Nebraska.

I have an OB appointment Monday so I'll go to that, then Tuesday we'll get up and leave. We're going to drive to Oklahoma City and stay at my friend Jennifer's house (she was our neighbor in England). She had a baby in October so it will be neat to meet him also!

We'll get up on Wedneday and drive to Wichita, KS and stop and have lunch with another friend from England that is stationed there now, then we'll finish our drive to Omaha!

Not sure how long we're staying yet, but I'll keep you posted.

On the bean front I had a scare this week. Somehow i managed to get shocked pretty strong from an electrical outlet on Monday. I called the on-call nurse at the OB and all she said was "well if you start bleeding, go to the E.R." So of course all night and the next morning every time I had a little cramp, or pressure or anything I was running to make sure I wasn't bleeding. I called the OB the next day and they went ahead and me come in Wednesday morning to have a listen and sure enough the bean was fine. Had a nice strong heart rate of 130bpm.

Taylor and I are going to playgroup tomorrow morning, then Saturday I have Mom's Day Out for a few hours with the play group Moms. That will be fun! OB appointment Monday, and Tuesday we leave!

Haven't been taking any pictures lately, but I'm sure i'll have more soon! I did get picture of Taylor in pigtails for the first time! So here's that!! Complete with food all over her face, haha.

I'll post more when I can!
