20 Weeks, Lucy, Poppy Dip, and Elwood!

Here we go again...another week without Internet at home which is driving me slightly, okay a lot CRAZY!  But my wonderful husband has assured me the problem will be fixed by the end of this week!  I hate, hate, hate falling behind on your lives and pictures.  I have been having dreams about blogging, and some of you, so you know it's bad when I am dreaming about you!!

So here is a little update from our lives...

**Taken at 20 weeks 2 days**
I am officially halfway there!  Not a whole lot has changed...we found out we are having a girl, Lucy May.  Trust me friends, there was no denying her girly features...I have no clue what I am looking for on those things, but I knew I didn't see anything, which meant GIRL!  Lucy was so active during the US!  She was punching, kicking, rolling around, at one point her knees her touching her nose!  So she either loved being looked at, or hated every minute of it!  Lucy is one feisty little girl!  Which scares me to death to think Molly could be the calm one and Lucy could be the active one!  

  Right now I have a lot of energy, well as much energy as a 5 month pregnant Mommy of an almost 3 year old can have.  I have been trying to do everything that I can while the energy still lasts.  I remember towards the end with Molly feeling so tired and all I wanted to do was sleep.  Which I am having a hard time doing right now.  My hip bones all the way to my toes just ache, I mean really ache.  Not like flu ache, but ache.  Good explanation, huh.  So around 3am I always wake up because I can not get comfortable, plus I have to go to the bathroom.  It takes until lunch time for the ache to go away.  I know it's all worth it, and I can do anything for 40 weeks, but the next 20 weeks with limited sleep seems scary to me :)

Molly wore her new Poppy Dip dress to church on Sunday!  We got a lot of wonderful compliments from our friends!  I won a gift certificate to Sallee's sight, Poppy Dip from Amy.  Sallee and her husband are adopting their 3 child, and all of the money from the Poppy Dip sales goes directly towards the adoption fees.  Sallee was wonderful to work with, and fast!  She was super fast!  I can't wait to order from her again!

Elwood is still doing wonderfully!  He is so sweet and I love him so much!  I think he is finally fully adjusting to our house and our family.  He is still waking me up about once a night, but it all happens at the same time as going to the bathroom and the achy leg thing. 
Molly has this tent/tunnel thing that she got for Christmas, and often times Elwood can be found in her tent or hanging out in the tunnel!  Too funny!

Elwood loves sitting in the window, however, he is a little "big" for the window sill,
but he still gets up there.  Sidenote- see the lannon stone through the window, those are steps that take you up to a big wooden deck in our 2 layer backyard. 

Last, but not least- Lucy May!  Sorry the quality isn't that great, but at least you can see her!  Eric scanned some other ones in, like the one of her touching her knees to her nose, but they won't upload.  Enjoy!

Hope you get your internet fixed soon. I can relate since I fried my computer this past week end. So, It is either do it at work, or borrow my husbands until my new one gets here.

Love the photos---you look fantastic. Molly is getting so big. Can hardly wait to meet little Lucy in person.

So funny about dreaming about blog friends! That's too funny!

So sweet to see the pic of Miss Lucy! Glad to hear she's so active and doing well! I am SO excited that you're having another girl. I love, love being a mom to girls. It's the greatest thing ever!

ohh Kate! Your little baby girl is beautiful in the womb! I love looking at ultrasound pics! Thank you for sharing Lucy's with us.
BTW-- a very precious name she has already!
Your hips hurting are something I too experience. Regular chiropractic visits are good to remedy this during pregnancy.
Your life is so full of blessings-
Cute pic of Molly!
Love- September

Looking great Kate! I bet you'll be sooo glad to get internet back. I know I would be!! :)

I'm excited you are having a little girl. She's so precious even in her US pic!! I'm glad that you still have energy right now. That's great! But what a bummer on the hip thing! I hope that goes away for you.

Glad the US went so well and she moved a lot for you! The US pic is really cute of her profile too!

Hopefully the aching will go away soon. I remember not feeling too comfortable towards the end too and I thought I'd be pregnant forever! haha!
