This and That

The reason for this weeks title is just what this week has been about! We didn't really do too much that allowed us to take many pictures, so there is a little of this and a little of that! I have been peeking back into my classroom this week to get some things set for the year. We had a full day of district meetings on Thursday with my last full day of summer break on Friday. It was very difficult not sharing our news during this day but I wanted to wait share the news with my team this coming Monday. Monday and Tuesday are full days of meetings and I will be back with the kidos on Wednesday! Many people are asking if I am ready... My response is that I am ready to get back to a schedule, and I have to start the year in order to end another year!!! The year goes soooo fast and my year will be shorter with being done in March. There is a lot to do between now and then!

Baby Updates:
I am officially 11 weeks this week. I continue to be amazed that I have had no morning sickness. The only thing is that I NEED to eat when I feel hungry, or I begin to feel sick. Tiredness continues with very lazy days and good days. I even mowed the lawn this past week while Adam laid on the couch... hmmmm. This week marks the transition from embryo to a fetus. The babies are about the size of large limes. All organ systems are in place and rapid growth is about to begin. Within the next 9-10 weeks the babies will grow triple-fold. Development into whether they are male or female will be complete in about three weeks. The babies ears are about in place, and they have fingernails!

I have a feeling that the names will continue all throughout the pregnancy. This week my sister asked "How are my nieces doing, Thelma and Louise?"

This first picture of the week is the cutest! It took me awhile to get the pictures off my phone, so it's a little late. Late is better than never... Look at this Beach Baby! This takes us back to the beginning of August in Door County. Our niece, Elle turned one month old the week we were there and as you can see, she already has a lot of style and is ready for the many years to come of hanging out at the Nicolet Bay Beach!

This past Sunday was the Benson Family Reunion (my mom's side). It was an afternoon spent reconnecting with some family that I only see once a year and some great food! Adam put Izzie in this swing thinking she would hate it... but she liked it! Believe it or not, she wanted back in and was content just hanging out (sort of).

The most important thing of this week is to WELCOME HARPER J. Harper was born on Saturday, August 28th at 4 p.m. He weighed 6 lbs. 7 ozs. and is 19 inches long. Adam and I got to go visit him and give him some snuggles. We are looking forward to watching him grow!!! Congratulations to Cindy and Luke. He is precious!

(I promise he wasn't hanging upside down... just my angle)

We even got to see some eyes!
