He did it!!

Our little gymnast turned a very important flip and is no longer breech!! I am so excited! I would have bet you money that he was still breech because I thought I would feel him flip but that shows how much I know. What a relief. Steve looked at me during the ultrasound with a grin and said, "Now what will you have to worry about?" He knows me so well. The ultrasound estimated him weighing about 6 pounds 1 ounce and the sweet lady who did the ultrasound predicts he'll deliver between 7.5 and 8.5 pounds. Looks like he'll be our biggest baby yet. She also said he has lots of hair and most likely chubby cheeks. We told her since both his parents have chubby cheeks, his chances are good :) Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers. Lots of people were praying for this little baby and I am so thankful! Keep it up:)

Look at that grumpy face! We are in love. Steve emailed the picture to my dad and said "Maybe Benton heard that the Yankees lost?" My dad is a huge Yankees fan and replied back, "My expression exactly when ARod struck out to end our season." (That little "hole" in his forehead is something to do with the ultrasound...I can't remember what they said exactly). Everything looked great at my appointment and I'll go back in 2 weeks.

Yesterday, I read this devotion and oh my word it was written about me! I am the queen of mama drama sometimes and realize that all too often I am the source of my girls' own drama. Definitely something I needed to read and reread.

Finally, Owen is having a hard time deciding between Little Bo Peep and Raggedy Ann for Halloween. Both are hand me downs from Anna Clare, who is also recycling an old costume. LOVE when that happens:)

AC was Raggedy Ann 3 years ago and I can't get over how much they've grown!

Yay!! I'm so glad to hear that he turned. I love the Raggady Anne costume. So cute!

So thankful that little man turned himself around!

The "mama drama"'re wrong, it was written about ME! I've really been struggling with that lately! I meant to email you weeks ago when you blogged about the newfound "attitude", etc. Matthew was the same way when he started 3rd grade. It was just a really hard adjustment that year, for some reason. Everybody tells me it's normal for this age. Unfortunately, it didn't just end with 3rd grade. The adjustment to school has been much easier this year, but we're still battling some attitude. I think I need to read that devotion EVERY SINGLE DAY!
