Baby, Hunting, Birthday & Pumpkin Carving

Last week at our appointment we found out lots of good things! The ultrasound took about 30 minutes. Our baby girl weighed 2 pounds 10 ounces, she looks very healthy and was making good breathing motions. She has long legs (they are in the 86 percentile). I can tell she's getting stronger and stronger because her kicks are starting to hurt more. My cervix still looks good and the ultrasound tech thinks I'll make it to my due date, which I didn't think I would.

Her feet have gotten bigger and fatter since 20 weeks. I've decided her toes look like mine...which is probably a good thing.

This isn't a very good picture. She had her arm up over her head so it was making a shadow on her face.

We can't wait for her to be here. Jory and I always talk about who we think she'll look like and what features of ours she'll have. We almost have her room all done. I'm just waiting for my mom to come help paint!

Jory was so excited to go hunting this year. He didn't get a deer, but he had fun!

This is my dad...of course he is standing by the food

We weren't sure if Derek was going to be able to go hunting this year, but he did really good. He even got a deer a few days later.

It was Jory's birthday on Sunday. He's 25 now. Some of his family came to my parents house and we had dinner and ice cream cake.

On Monday night for family home evening we carved pumpkins.

27 weeks

I made it to 27 weeks. I just wish I was 37 weeks. I'm not too good at being pregnant. I still get sick and I get about every pregnancy symptom there is to get...even the rare ones. I'm afraid I'll have to be on complete bedrest soon and I really don't want to be. So I hope everything goes okay at my appointment on Wednesday!

Derek's Home!

Last night I called home to talk to my mom about Derek and to see if he was home yet. Derek answered the phone, "Konnichiwa," in his weird accent. I was so happy to hear that because Derek would always answer the phone like that. I knew he hadn't changed at all. You would never believe he was in the hospital unconscious the week before. He still has to go to physical therapy twice a day, but everyday he is getting better and better. Derek said the physical therapists want him to work his brain all the time to make sure he remembers things. So he has to help Rocki with her homework every night. He said it's like he has to go back to school. He's also working with my mom memorizing scriptures. He told me the physical therapists said he has a problem paying attention sometimes. He listens really good for awhile then dazes off. That made him mad because he said he always did that before. He said he would always to that to me and Jory. Which is true. At least he admits it. Anyway, he is doing really good and he's really glad he's home and can actually eat good food now.
