August has come and gone. Early in the month when i was a little over 31 weeks pregnant i started having some pretty bad contractions- i went in to my doctor and they gave me a shot to stop my uterus from contracting and gave me a prescription for if it happend again. Luckily i can say i'm now 35 weeks and haven't had any major contractions- we're trying to keep this kiddo in as long as we can. In fact we have a poll going with my parents and brothers where we all picked several days and the winner gets $$. I'm a little tempted to try induce on one of the days i've picked. Aricin started pre-school about two weeks ago (only 2 days a week), he seems to be enjoying it so far and has a great teacher. Tally starts tumbling in a couple of days (for 18m-2year olds) it should be fun to do something special one on one with her this fall before baby gets here. I'm still nesting and reorganizing like crazy and am starting to feel anxious about the arrival of our new member of the family. I've also been going nuts on new craft projects i've found on Pinterest.com. We still have no idea what this kiddo is, we have a girl's name set, and are almost decided on a boys name. Aaron's back at school and is busy as he's the department chair this year for the Bible department. As much as i've enjoyed the warmth and sunshine of summer i'm enjoying getting back into a normal routine and LOVE all things fall- I can't wait for Starbucks to come out with their pumpkin spice late's! Tally is talking more and more in her little chipmunk voice. She loves to climb and explore like her brother but also loves to drag her baby dolls with her everywhere along with her phone and purse. I'm hoping to break her of her "girlyness." Aricin loves playdates with his buddies and time at the pool, we're looking at putting him in swim lessons next month. He climbs everything he can find and although is still very sweet is starting to exhibit more and more moments of non-compliant emotional 3 year old behavior. (Sigh) They both love their daddy and crawl all over him whenever he's around. For now we are all trying to enjoy this "Calm" before the storm as we know baby trey can be here any time.

Love it! And it is still piping hot over here in Visalia so all this talk of fall is a little fairytalish to me. Emma will start ballet next week and she carries around a pink phone and puts on everyone's shoes, so I feel you with the "girlyness" Can't wait for more baby news!
