This is a big week where Eloise's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to hard bone. She is also getting sweat glands and is able to move joints. She is learning to suck and swallow and is startled by loud noises. (I'm sure she is appreciating all the sneezing I've been doing this week!) We are anxiously awaiting our ultra sound being scheduled. I think that will happen after our appointment next week. I'm ready to decorate and SHOP!
I love this little song Lee learned at preschool. I especially love the way he says tiptoe like "tipthtoe" and the way he sings "Halloween is soon." Last night when he was singing it, I was mouthing the words and doing the motions too. He politely said, "Mommy, please wait your turn to do the commotions."

Paul and Lee wanted to take this giant pumpkin home.

I ran into a friend while waiting, who is also pregnant, and she and her little boy were getting their shots. She no longer lives in Paris, but she contacted Dr. Kimberlin to seek advice on the vaccine. She left a message for his nurse to call back, and he called her back himself. (I think I love that man more every day. What a treasure to have him here!) Anyway, he told her that she must get the vaccine, and then he told her that one of his patients got the H1N1 flu and was transferred to Jackson yesterday. Because she was so sick, she was forced to deliver early and is in very critical condition. My friend said that he sounded very upset. She had been praying over her decision, and talking to Dr. K was hopefully going to convince her one way or the other. She realized she didn't have a choice after hearing about his patient. We don't know who the woman or baby is, but please pray that she and the baby will pull through and pray for Dr. K, who cares so much for his patients.

For those of you who have asked and have been concerned, we are on the list to get our H1N1 vaccines tomorrow. We have been so fortunate not to have it at our house. When we saw Dr. Whitby on Monday, he said his clinic has seen over 500 cases so far. I am so thankful that we have not had to go through that! I will rest a LOT easier tomorrow night knowing my family is a little safer.

He has gotten better at becoming aggressive and fighting for the ball.

I don't know why he combed his hair and then chose a headband for bedtime, but it was hilarious. He kept telling me to quit laughing so he could "sneak up on Daddy." Mind you, Matt was sitting 3 feet away on the other couch trying not to look or giggle.
