Any time now

My wonderful children have been keeping me entertained and busy while I impatiently wait for #3.
Friday morning I found Charlotte napping like this.

Friday at my Dr. appt got my membranes stripped. Friday afternoon I had a constant dull ache in my back and lots of random contractions, not painful ones, that made me think I would go into labor anytime.

Sunday, not too many contractions. Trent and I were released from our church callings and I was able to give my last lesson in Young Women's. Hardly any girls were in town, so I am going to have to stalk them to say goodbye. Who knows, I might be able to make it to their Wed. night activity-although I'd prefer to be in the hospital.
Sunday after church we had an early birthday get together at my Mom's for Tucker. His birthday isn't until Saturday, but with this baby coming we wanted to get some celebrating in now. We got to celebrate with Nana, Spencer, Claire, (Dad and Mark are off on a pre-mission trip visiting all the church history sites for a week!) Sarah, Gabe, Chandler, Jackson, and Karen. My mom made a fantastic, really yummy dinner for us all and we hung out and opened presents and ate cake and ice cream. It was a wonderful, low key family celebration. We will celebrate with Trent's family Tuesday or Saturday, depending on this baby. Tucker had lots of fun and got some really cool presents, his favorite being Dinoco McQueen. I think I need to find a synonym for celebrate. . . He was thrilled especially to spend time with Jackson and I wish I had gotten a picture of the hug he gave him when he walked in the door. Jackson is just 9 months older than Tucker and is so hilarious. When Tucker opened his Spiderman and Green Goblin figures I heard Jackson say, "If you let me be Spiderman, I'll be your best buddy." Tucker was not swayed.

After partying at Nana's, Trent and I ditched the kids and went to the blessing of Lindy's baby Ellie at her mom's.

What a weekend!

Tucker looks so much like his dad! It will be fun for your boys to have birthdays so close together. My three kids are all within a week of each other, and they get a kick out of it.

Robin,
Congrats soon on #3. That is so exciting. I hope that everything goes great. They say 'third time is the charm'. That's about all the advice I can give on the childbirth topic. I'll go now.

I can't believe Tucker is 4! I remember him clarifying the "bread" and "water" in Sacrament Meeting. He was so sweet sounding.

Charlotte looks so sweet as she sleeps. What a precious shot.

Great weekend report. I am so impressed with all that you are up to. DARLING shot of that sleeping Charlie! I love it!

I am anxious to get THAT phone call from you! I love you so much and wish I were there for you.

Yay! You're almost there. I can't wait to see the next Trent/Robin mix. . .I'd say they've turned out extremely well thus far. Good luck on surviving the anticipation for the next little while.
