We're still here!

Geesh- I've been away from blogging for a few weeks. Just wanted to pop on and give a bunch of excuses, er- uh..... "reasons" why.

1. We've been busy! So get off my back, ok?? :) Just kidding, but we really have been swamped. With summer stuff, life, family, OB appointments, friends in town, parties, etc... The summer is flying in a blink of an eye.

2. I lost my camera cord. But never fear- I found it and have weeks of photos to upload and share.

3. I threw out my back- last week at a lunch with some friends while I was lifting Preston and have spent the last several days trying to rest to let it heal. I know, what a perfect time to blog, right? Well, the camera cord and all...

So, in an attempt to catch up, here's a family picture and some pregnancy progress info to tide you over...
This was taken at Grandma and Grandpa Erb's this past weekend. (keep in mind, my back... I was in pain) and Preston was having a ROUGH day. But Kevin looks good. As always. :)

And in pregnancy news- I'm 27 weeks. Yep, that's a week away from starting my third trimester. Ridiculous. Where has this pregnancy gone? Kevin and I keep saying that it drug on and on with Preston because we were so nervous, but this time it's going too fast. We had the baby's room painted a pale pink last week. (In fact, we got a ton of painting done.. it was my attempt to hire someone to take care of my nesting duties for me.) :) Btw, can I just say how nice it was to have someone paint FOR us? We've always painted our houses by ourselves, but we left it to professionals last week and they did a great job. We had the kitchen painted, some trim in the breakfast nook, the foyer and upstairs and downstairs hallway (bye bye obnoxiously dark black/brown color!!) the baby's room, and the upstairs hall bathroom and we are really relieved to have done in one day what would have taken us a few months. Pics of the baby's room to come...

27 week update: (taken from BabyCenter)
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.
