We had a great Christmas this year. We hosted dinner and were joined by Terry, Grandma Karen, Omar, and Great Grandma Evelyn.

Madeline gave Marah this doll that she got in the garage. It was an older one we had weeded out at one point. Marah loves it and brings it everywhere with her.

Birthdays and baby belly

Madeline's 7th birthday is the 18th!!! I cannot believe how big she is getting. She reads entire books, makes her own sandwiches, sews on a sewing machine, and the other day loaded the dishwasher. Sigh... Where did my baby go?

Her birthday party is on the 15th and she is really excited to decorate cupcakes and have a treasure hunt.

Now to the belly. It is growing. Today I am 27 weeks and 1 day. We are not finding out the sex so this will be our first surprise baby! We are still meeting with our midwife once a month and soon will move to twice a month. Once the holidays are over I can concentrate on getting the house ready for a new baby and getting all the homebirth supplies.

So here it is 27w 1d.
