Check Ups

Raina and Remy both had well child check-ups this week. Remy is 23.5 pounds and 32 inches; Raina is 37 pounds and 40 inches. Both are healthy and right on track. Remy had 3 shots and needed a little extra TLC for a day or so, but is doing fine now.

I had my 20 week ultrasound yesterday--my first one that used the 4D technology, so we can see the baby's features without it looking like an alien. True to form, we're waiting to find out if it's a boy or girl. Everything looks good, although they want to do another ultrasound in a month because they didn't get all the views of the heart and cord insertion they wanted because of the position the baby was in. Raina came with me, and when the nurse called my name (Jennifer), Raina said, "That's not Jennifer! It's mommy--mommy Jenny!" The nurse got a chuckle out of that.
Since they put some ultrasound pictures on a CD for me, it's easy for me to share.

Gooseberry Falls

While my family was visiting for a couple of days, we made a stop at Gooseberry Falls. It was nice and warm out, so the kids enjoyed splashing in the water.
