Defiance County Fair

August 22, 2009

Dave decided to humor me again this year when I wanted to go to the county fair. I truly believe he hates going but always puts on a happy face for me. I love fair food and only get it once a year. I also think they should have "pony rides" for adults because that was my favorite part of the fair when I was little.

We met up with Betsi, Chad and Hayden. Hayden asked Uncle Dave to ride the big slide with him. After a little push Dave followed Hayden up the large number of steps. I think Dave had a pretty good time. Check out the smile on his face. Hayden's smile came at the end of the slide. It was as big as could be! Thanks to Chad for the picture!

Baby Gilly Update

August 3rd, 2009 - Dr. Bob Visit

The baby, Dave and I visited the doctor on Monday. As usual, we were back in the patient room as soon as we arrived. I love to watch the nurse take my blood pressure, which was 120/78. Perfect! I love to watch because she never tells me what it is and by watching the numbers on the dial I can figure it. I'm also now 4 pounds over the weight I started at in February. The doctor was pleased that I had gained some weight. Go me! Actually Dave is a really good cook!
The babies heart beat was at 140 bpm. Last visit is was 144 and the visit before the it was 146. Baby Gilly is growing as expected. Dr. Bob indicted our ultrasound will be scheduled after our next appointment. I'm super excited to share our pictures with you. I hope we get some good ones. :)

Although we are not finding out girl/boy at the ultrasound, I have taken a few online "old wives tales" quizzes. When the quiz ended it in dicated, at 80 %, a girl. This is based on 51 "old wives tales". I cannot believe there are that many! Did you know one of them says if your like to eat the heal of the loaf of bread you are having a boy? I have eatten the heal of the loaf of bread my entire life and I still think I'm having a girl. I read on 2 different web sites that mother's intuition is right 71 % of the time. I guess we shall see.
