Better Than Average

Not much to tell y'all about this week. Now I definitely won't many comments from you! :(

I finished the Baby Sleeping bunny I was cross stitching for the door to Toot's nursery and brought it to the store to get made into the little pillow that hangs from the door. I should have it in two to three weeks and I'll post some pictures.

Friday, Tim and I went and ate pizza and went to Wal-Mart and Target to get some Halloween stuff. We are participating in "Trunk or Treat" at our church and so we have to decorate the back end of my car for it. We're going to do a graveyard so we bought three tombstones, some fabric to cover the back with, some spiders, a skull, a bat, and some black roses. I think we're going to have the gate of the back of my car covered in black and make a moon to hang from it and have the bat hanging by the moon. Hopefully it will turn out cute.

Saturday, we hung out at the house and exercised and then went to Cafe Italia in Grapevine for dinner with Tim's friend, Stephen, and his fiancee, Kelly. I've mentioned hanging out with them before but they recently got engaged! After Cafe Italia, which was really good by the way, we went to the AMC theatre at the Grapevine Mills mall to see Paranormal Activity. We had heard a lot of scary things about it and were anxious to see it. It was very suspenseful - not gory at all. I wasn't as scared as I thought I would be, but it was a good movie. Unfortunately, there were a TON of kids that were definitely not old enough to be in a rated R movie and they acted kind of stupid (screaming at really dumb things). But it was still a good time.

We went to church today and to the grocery store. We watched some football and I took a nap while Tim did some work he needed to do. I went on a walk and he went on a run and then we had breakfast for dinner (yum) and here we are :)

Not too eventful but, as the post title says, I think things are better than average in life right now.

This week, I'm going to Waco on Wednesday to finally pick up my wedding album and for my little sister, Emily's, 13th birthday. Friday, we are headed to Boerne. Tim is going to stay in Boerne with my stepdad and play in a poker tournament on Saturday and my mom and I are headed first to Beaumont for a baby shower that Tim's mom's friend is having for me and then we are going to go to Houston to spend the night to celebrate her birthday. Should be a fun week and weekend. I'm super excited about the shower!

Toots has been kicking up a storm lately. I definitely like it, though, and get nervous if I don't feel him a lot. He seems to like the afternoon and night times the best. Tim reads to him everynight before we go to bed.

Here's the belly picture of the week. I think I look bigger on top of my belly this week.

And here's what's going on with baby this week:

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

Several books said he is more like 15 1/4 inches rather than 14 1/2, so somewhere around there.

Here's a picture:

Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend!
