To the Dentist!

Lily Kate has a mouth full of teeth, and her first tooth came in at 3 months!!!  So yep, today was Lily Kate's first trip to the dentist! 

In the waiting room...

 she thinks she is a big girl now that she can climb up in a seat!

Daddy came along to help with her.  Thank goodness cause I can't chase this wild girl much these days!

And here we are -- getting our teeth cleaned!  I thought she would be wild and I would have to sit on her and pry her mouth open...  but nope, she was super still and opened her mouth on her own!  When Mrs. Marty needed her mouth open wider, Lily Kate said "Ahhhhhhh" and it opened!

It was super fun watching.  Of course I had to snap a few pics (I did get permission first!).  And to be honest, these last 2 pics are after it was all said and done.  We were pretending here just for the pics... I didn't want to mess up the real cleaning by snapping pics!  Mrs. Marty said she did great and that her teeth look great.  Dr. Reid bragged and bragged on her, saying her teeth look great.  He advised only water after her brushing at night, and I let him know that she didn't drink anything after we brushed.  He was impressed by how her teeth looked and how well mannered she was, but more impressed that she didn't scream or bite him!  He said they usually wear ear plugs and get bitten at a 1st cleaning.  They gave her a new toothbrush, a rubber elephant and a rubber ducky.  Yay Lily Kate, you did great!

Green Pea Pics

Here are some pics of our little Green Pea, though she is not so little anymore!  Green Pea is now the size of a papaya -- wow!  She is about 12.7 oz and is about 10.5" long, not counting her legs!  Until now she has changed sizes every week, but now she will only change every 4 weeks. 

Green Pea still doesn't have a real name yet, but we are working on that!  Any suggestions?????  We didn't decide Lily Kate's name until the week before she was born, and then Taylor wanted to keep it a secret (this drove me CRAZY!!!).  As soon as we know Green Pea's name, it will be announced via tv, radio, blog, text, email. microphone...  haha! 

Green Pea was pretty calm during the sonogram.  She wasn't turning flips, sucking her thumb or yawning like her big sister did...

I love this one!  She is touching her toe to her forehead.  Can you do that???

And you can see her hand in this one!  CUTE!

I have the pic that assures us that Green Pea is a girl, but I will keep that off of the blog!  22 weeks down, 17 more to go (she will be born a week early)!


Taylor, Rebecca, Lily Kate, and Green Pea

A quick funny!

I know that you are waiting on pics and more info about Green Pea, and I will get to that soon!  Lily Kate decided the middle of last week to get sick, so I haven't been able to do some of those things that I have wanted to do!  

So here is a Lily Kate funny ( and I hope you think its funny/cute...  if not, sorry for a boring post!!!)

Lily Kate has discovered the choo choo at Poppy's office, which means that every time we hear a choo choo (even still far far away), we have to run outside to watch it.  And she doesn't understand or like it when she can hear a choo choo but not see it.  Well the funny part of the story is that now every time she sees an 18-wheeler, she screams choo choo!  It is super cute in my opinion, and I can see where she thinks the two look alike!  Isn't it just amazing to watch these little babies grow and learn.  Thank you God for Lily Kate and the blessing that she is to Taylor and me.  Please guide us on how you want us to raise her.

That's it for tonight...  I will try to do better this week!
