Play day with Mommy and Daddy

video
Jon and I both had the day off today to have some fun with our girl.  The morning started off with mommy's glucose test at Dr. Froehlich's office.  We all got to hear Greyson's heartbeat as well as him kicking the microphone.  I am measuring small for 28 weeks, so for all those telling me that I look like i'm carrying twins, boo-yah!  After the MD visit, we ventured over to Run, Jump, and Play for a couple hours.  Isabella loves it there.  She mostly enjoys swinging, jumping on the trampoline, and playing in the little house.  She has a good imagination and made me a lot of "food" as you will see in the video.  Back to reality tomorrow.

Story time

Tonight Isabella read me a number of stories, and I read her some as well.  Usually she just opens the book, and says "The End."  Tonight, she was trying to read simultaneously to me reading.  My favorite story to read her is Wherever you are my love will find you by Nancy Tilman.  I want to share it with you because it's the sweetest thing you will ever see, and if you are a mother it will melt your heart for sure. 
 
I wanted you more
than you ever will know,
so I sent love to follow
wherever you go.
 
It's high as you wish it, It's quick as an elf. 
You'll never outgrow it...it stretches itself!
 
So climb any mountain...
climb up to the sky!
My love will find you.
My love can fly!
 
Make a big splash! Go out on a limb! 
My love will find you, my love can swim!
 
It never gets lost,, never fades, never ends...
 
if you're working....
or playing....
or sitting with friends
 
You can dance til you're dizzy...
paint 'til you're blue...
there's no place, not one,
that my love can't find you.
 
And if someday you're lonely,
or someyou're sad,
or you strike out at baseball,
or think you've been bad...
 
just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair.
That's me, my sweet baby, my love is right there.
 
In the green of the grass...in the smell of the sea....in the clouds floating by...at the top of a tree...in the sound crickets make at the end of the day....
"You are loved. You are loved. You are loved," they all say.
 
My love is so high, and so wide, and so deep, it's always right there, even when you're asleep
 
So hold your head high
and don't be afraid
to march to the front
of your own parade.
 
If you're still my small babe
or you're grown, 
my promise to you
is you're NEVER alone.
 
You are my angel, my darling, my star....and my love will find you, wherever you are.
You are loved.
 
 
Every single time I read this to Isabella I get choked up.  I want to read this to her every single day because this is just how I feel.  Hope you all have a wonderful night!  I have my doctor's appointment/Gestational diabetes iorrow and then we are taking Isabella to play at Run, Jump, and Play.  She has been talking about that place for weeks.

First Blog Entry


Isabella is feeling much better.  Her voice is finally back and she has been running around like a crazy woman.  She is quite the decision maker these days.  The minute she wakes up she says: "show" followed by "Einsteins!,"  which is her current favorite tv show. She also enjoys Little Bear, which Jon and I despise.   She also tells us what she wants to eat or drink.  She hlas recently started trying to sing songs and she looks so proud of herself when she does.  At Mrs. Aly's house, she has been obsessed with putting together a United States puzzle, and she can say what some of the states are just by looking at them, "Alabama" and "Utah" are her favorites.  I am starting to get a little more uncomfortable but just enjoying this "nesting" instinct until our little man gets here.
