But here is what we have been up to. On Wednesday January 12, Jory came home for lunch. That was SO nice. Jory used to eat lunch at home every day, but where we live now in relation to his job does not make it feasible. So this was a special treat and Aaron loved it.

Aaron and I spent the afternoon at Mimi and Grandad's and had so much fun. Well, Aaron had fun. I was just lazy and sat in a big comfortable chair while Aaron wore his grandparents out! Friday January 14, 2011
Aaron and I met Ann for lunch. It is always so nice to see her - plus we got all the fun stuff for Abby's room!
On Sunday January 23, Papa and Kimmie stopped by on the way back from the airport where they had picked up Jory's Aunt Anne. Aaron got to visit with her for a bit and it was a super nice visit. And today (Friday January 28) Aaron is at the Stock Show with John and Kim. He looks super cute and I hope they are taking pictures because I sure didn't take one this morning! Sigh. I will do better next week!

We had a doctor's appointment today. We'll have one next Tuesday and the Tuesday after that and then the following Tuesday is the delivery! The appointment went well. My blood pressure is great. Abby's heartrate is great, all is well. My doctor is not going to do exams since she can't change the C-Section date even if she thinks I'll go into labor, so it will not be known whether Abby appears to be getting ready to come early - it will just be a surprise if she does!
Finally, Grandad and Mimi have an Elmo doll that Aaron is in love with. They always have it waiting for him when he arrives. Now when you ask Aaron who lives with Mimi he says 'Grandad and Elmo'. He's even added Elmo to his prayers.

Here are those words: Yes is 'Awww Way'. This was the very first word that he assigned something to and he has used 'Awww Way' to mean 'Yes' for months now. If you ask Aaron a Yes/No Question he will consistently say 'No' or 'Awww Way'.
Truck is 'Big'. If Aaron says 'Big' he is referring to a truck. If he wants to refer to the size of something as big, he will not say 'Big'. He will say 'Big Bear' or 'Big Bird'. 'Big' alone is a truck.
Grandad is 'Dowel' or 'Dawl'. I am not sure how to spell this one. He has had this one for about a month and he is definitely consistent with it. I think Grandad is just so glad to be called something finally! Jory loves this one. He now refers to his dad as 'Dowel' when he talks about him. It may stick.
Aaron is 'E'. This is fairly new, but he's definitely sticking with it. 'E Bear' is Aaron's Bear.

Have a blessed weekend!

Your two favorite things to do are to be read to and to play with your rocks. You could be read to for hours. If it was up to you we wouldn't move from the couch all day. But since Mama does have to do some other things during the day you will occupy yourself with putting your rocks in and out of every container and toy truck you can find!

Kimmie and Papa were supposed to come over, but they rescheduled for Thursday so Aaron and I did our normal Thursday morning grocery shopping on Tuesday and then spent the day at home.
Most mornings, Aaron unloads the dish washer. It's a thing for him and it's worked out okay so far.
We also had a doctor's appointment for Abby. I am almost 34 weeks and in two weeks we will start the weekly visits. All is well and Little Miss is still very active! Aaron is quite active, as well. He is loving to be read to and would gladly sit on the couch all day while all of his books are read to him over and over. He'll also occasionally read them to me. His vocabulary is increasing so quickly. I have been keeping track of all of his new words and he's picked up 40 in three weeks! On Wednesday we had our carpets cleaned which was SO nice. It gave us lots of time to hang out in the carpet-free living room and read lots of books!
