Still pregnant

As of Sunday, July 19 at 10:15pm - I am still pregnant and 2 days past my due date. We may go to the zoo tomorrow to do some walking. I am also getting a pretty bad cough and cold - not a good combo for a pregnant lady. I have to post this pic of Alethia since all my facebook friends liked it.

Also - A just got a dress up outfit from some sweet folks who are in America at the moment. It is a Fancy Nancy dress and she loves it. I think she has worn it for the last 4 days. Her friend Jess, in the big city, let her borrow a book about Fancy Nancy. She just informed Caleb that she is going to do the cha-cha with Grandma Gladys when she gets back to America. Grandma, I hope you are ready.

Happy Birthday Gagee!

We were really hoping Baby Asher would come on your birthday but it does not look like that will happen only 1 hour and 15 minutes until this day is over on our side of the world. Gagee we wish you a Happy Birthday and hope to give you another great grandchild within the next few days. We love you and miss you!

Who are my friends?

Alethia loves having friends to play with. There is usually someone new staying here everyday. So she asks in the morning "Mommy, who are my friends today?" Here are some of her friends.

We can Post Again.

We are now in the big city - awaiting the birth of our little boy. His due date is July 18th. I think he may be a view days early - but hopefully not too early. We still have some things to do. Just got a recent diaper grant from Thank you all so much. They are going to be wonderful - 12 free Bum Genius cloth diapers. The new baby will not have to use Alethia's old nasty ones nor use the ones that are purple and hot pink. He should feel blessed.

We are staying in a nice place - sort of like a guest house. We have our own sleeping quarters and bathroom with microwave and fridge. Then there is this community area for cooking with great cooking facilities and even hot water for washing dishes. The whole place is air conditioned so I am not even sweating that much inside.

There is a pool we can use but it has a habit of turning my hair green. Not cool. Alethia is enjoying seeing so many folks and having "friends" to play with. She loves blowing bubbles and running around kicking the soccer ball. We often find her in the common area sitting amongst a big pile of books that she is "reading". She is also a big fan of puzzles and can do some pretty difficult ones with the help of mommy or daddy. She is convinced that we are having a boy and a girl - then she proceeds to count to 10 - as if her parents are planning on having that many children. I will leave that to the other J.Coppenger family and to the Lanfords. Will try to post some pics.
