It's now the end of July which means I am, per my usual, long overdue for a blog post.  It also means less than three weeks until baby girl.   Which is unbelievable to me.  Although, my hips are telling me it's almost time.  They don't like me sleeping on them all night anymore.  They want my back to take a turn again.  And the hips don't lie.

We have had a lot of summer visitors so that has been nice.  The boys have been enjoying guests and parks and swim lessons and playing in the yard from dawn until dusk.

Roman is still loving his Legos and has recently discovered a passion for fishing.  He is also currently obsessed with the Avengers. 

A Roman funny:
The other day he found our Catch Phrase game.  He wanted to play so I told him to look at the word and describe it to me.  He said "Ok, this one is about Mass."
me:  "Hmm....prayer?"
R:  "no"
me:  "priest?"
R:  "no.  ok, the other one rhymes with erection".
me:  laughing hysterically.  He has no idea what this word means, or course.
R:  "see, Mass Direction.  I described it!"
me:  "Well, that says "Mass Destruction" but that was a great first try at the game".

Judah recently rediscovered the movie Larry Boy and the Bad Apple.  One day he just said "Hey, Mom, remember when I was a baby and I watched Larry Boy?  We should watch that one again."  Ummmm, ok.  So I got it out and now he wants to watch it 30 times a day. 

A Judah funny:
Instead of saying "How does that sound?"  he says things like this:  "We should listen to music.  How does that feel, Mom?"  Makes me laugh every time.

Silas continues to be 3.  He is very distracted all the time making it difficult to sit in a chair or eat during meal time or not climb every person he lays eyes on.  He is constantly squirming and silly.  He is always trying to get his brothers to laugh at him or wrestle with him.

A Silas funny:
Today I cleaned my room.  Because I'm a big girl.  Something that I haven't done (well) for probably about a year.  I somehow convinced Silas to go on a "treasure hunt" under my bed.  You know, to find all the random socks and wrappers and picture frames that never got hung up treasure.  He was a great little helper.  And then he walked around for the rest of the day declaring everything he found (think washcloths and broken earrings and bobby pins) "A TREASURE!"

And our sweet girl...
I know that these boys are going to be better men because of her.  I know that she is already so very loved.  Her room is almost ready and the bassinet is set up and the car seat is in the car.  We are a tiny bit excited.

I tested positive for Group B Strep again (I had that with Silas, also, and everything was fine).  But would you pray that she stays safe and healthy during and after birth?  Thanks so much, my dear friends.

And, as usual, I am taking prayer requests with me as I labor.  So, let me know how I can be praying for you.  We are all united in our suffering and we are often times closest to the Lord in the midst of it.  So, please, send your intentions.  It would be an honor to pray for you.
