Life Lately

So this happened... A hospital visit because I started having contractions (unknown to me) on Monday. They didn't feel like my contractions with Miller, but luckily I dropped my stubbornness long enough to have the doctor check me out. They were able to stop the contractions with two doses of meds, then sent me home. Longest 3 hours I've had in a while, especially since I wasn't allowed to eat!

Miller helped me build her new dresser for her big girl room. It only took me 3 days. Dang Ikea & their 3,000 piece dressers. She transitioned beautifully into her big girl bed a couple of months ago!

This happens OFTEN. Potty time whenever & wherever nature calls.

Smocked dress, backwards hat & duck face. The norm for Miller.

We snuggled & loved on Daddy all weekend for Father's Day!

Our town has a summer leage team for college baseball players & Miller loves the games!
Daddy was smart & bought tickets to 15 games. Too bad we'll probably have an infant soon & it's been 100+ degrees almost every day for the past two weeks.

Yelling, "Hit the ball!" 

Lastly, at my last appointment, my belly was measuring four weeks ahead. The baby is big, so they're planning to induce me at 39 weeks if he doesn't come on his own before then. Because of the contractions scare, I'm assuming he'll come on his own a little earlier. We're getting the nursery & everything else ready just in case he does!


A couple of weeks ago, we headed to Edisto with Ryan's family and remembered to take a few pictures!

On one of the cloudy mornings, we took Miller to the serpentarium. She loved the alligators & snakes the most!


Swinging, because when you're here, you're on Edi-Slow time.

We cooked or ordered in most every night, but went out as a big family towards the end of the week.

We'd never miss a family photo-op if everyone's had a shower!

We came back home to recover for a couple of weeks before our next beach trip!

House Update

The hardie board siding is going up & deciding the color was TOUGH! We went through so many options & painted a couple of boards that we carried around for weeks. We finally decided on Gristmill Greige by Sherwin Williams & are thrilled with the results (praise Jesus!)

Here's the back right side 

And the back left

Ryan's only must-have for the house was a screened-in porch with a fireplace. Done. Well, almost.

Here's the living room & what will be a coffered ceiling. My dream!

We're still guessing a December move-in date, but we definitely won't be disappointed with anything before!
