Birth date

I went to the doctor for my 27 week check-up yesterday and had to do my glucose test. Of course I did the test first, but unlike when I was pregnant with Meredith I did not get the results right away. No biggy, but then I received an email from another pregnant friend who goes to the same practice as I do and she just found out she has to do the 3-hour test, 4 weeks after her original test. There was no way I was waiting that long, so I called today and found out I passed, thank goodness!

Doc said everything looked good otherwise and when I asked him if we could schedule my c-section, he said no problem and he would have the nurse call. Tinsley will arrive on or before Sept. 10. Unfortunately we will not know the time until the day before, but the nurse seemed pretty certain that it would be morning since I was scheduling this early. Labor and delivery at the hospital actually schedules the times, not the doctor. So we will see. I probably won't tell many people when it is anyway because I don't want a zillion people there waiting like with Meredith, it stressed me out, especially the ones that were told not to show up until a certain time and didn't listen.

Anywho, I feel great and Tinsley is as active as ever. No swelling so far, except for after our drive home from Albany. I can still sleep pretty well too. Not to bad knowing I only have about 2.5 months left. Whoa that is crazy to think about. Man we have some work to get done soon!

Zoo Atlanta

Last Saturday we went to the zoo with the Wood Family. Here are some photos from our adventure. Neither family got a family photo while there (duh), but a good time was had by all, especially Madison and Meredith.

Baby Panda

Neither of the girls were real interested in petting the animals this time.

We ended the fun playing on the playground, which Meredith did pretty good at considering all of the big kids.

Nothing much new

I just wanted to write an update for the blog. Nothing much is new. We have been out of town the past two weekends, so it will be nice to be home this weekend.

We have a little chatty cathy on our hands, which is great, but you really have to watch what you say now. Luckily she has not repeated any of mommy and daddy's slip-ups. However, while we were visiting my mom two weeks ago I was telling her that I call Meredith the drunk walker in the mornings because she is a little unstable. When I finished saying this, Meredith blurted out "I drunk." We won't be saying that anymore. Her other sayings are: "I pretty," "I funny," "Get down" (referring to the cats usually), and "where are you." This morning she woke up and said "Marlow, where are you." For those of you who don't know, Marlow is her cow that goes everywhere (he was "hiding" behind her). It was the cutest thing. I need to try to get some of these things on video, but I never have it at the right moment.

Things are good with Tinsley, she is still as active as ever. We are going to the zoo with my friend Lenora's family on Saturday, so I should have a good post this weekend.
