Her Goofy Giggle {Char is Seven!}

Char Char is seven! Why does that sound so big?

She had to do a project at school this week, and she described herself as fast, funny, pretty, silly, clumsy, and smart. I'd say she hit the nail on the head. Girlfriend knows herself so well.


This girl loves to wear dresses and skirts, but she also loves to get down in street hockey or softball with the boys. She's definitely our biggest tomboy, and her sense of style is all her own. She'll wear a shirt with leggings and a skirt, and none of them will match. Somehow, she still pulls it off and looks adorable, though.

I feel like I'll always think of Charley like this:


It's hard for me to believe that she isn't this crazy little girl anymore. She's still crazy, just bigger and louder.
Our annual tradition is to ask the girls twenty questions on their birthday each year to see how much they change. Charley had some funny responses this year. My favorite part is at the end when she isn't sure whether she…

Last Week...

Picture of the Week: My Four Babies

Perry and I snuggled at bed time. I'm starting to feel a little sad that she won't be the baby any more, so I'm taking all the snuggle time I can get!

I watched baby brother roll around in my belly after dinner. I can't believe he'll be here this Friday!

Charley had team pictures at practice, and they turned out so cute.


I had my last monitoring appointment and one final ultrasound Thursday. Baby looks perfect, and they are estimating he will be seven pounds, ten ounces when he is born in the morning. He was just hanging out in there with his hands in his face, like usual. I also had to go to the hospital to do some pre-op lab work before picking the kids up from school.

Grace and Charley both had field day on Friday, and they had a blast playing with their friends.



Meanwhile, Isaac and I were at the hospital waiting for Baby Brother to make his appearance. All went smoothly, and he's finally here!
We spent the next two days…

From the moment I found out we were expecting baby number four, I started calculating our due date. It fell on May 18th, and I knew that I'd be having my fourth delivery via cesarean one week prior to that date. That put us at May 11th, which happened to fall on a Saturday. This meant that we'd probably be delivering on Monday, May 13th. I am not a fan of the number thirteen (or any odd numbers that aren't multiples of five), so I decided to make my due date May 17th instead. This meant we could deliver on Friday, May 10th, so that's what I went with at my first doctor appointment.
I had my first appointment with the high risk doctor at twelve weeks, and baby looked perfect in the ultrasound. My placenta was anterior just like it was with Grace, so I didn't think much of it. After the ultrasound, the doctor came in to talk to me and said she was worried because I had three prio…
