short (random) update

Yesterday was a busy day between a dentist appointment, taking my car to the mechanic, work, etc. A highlight of my day was my 22-week doctor's appointment. My doctor assured me that we are having a girl. Apparently I had read a little too much (doubt) into the wording the tech used when she told us, "looks like a sissy." I've been feeling the baby move for awhile now, but in the past couple of weeks, I've really enjoyed feeling more definite movement. This week, she has been waking me in the 4 or 5 o'clock hour with all that moving around.

Yesterday, we also enjoyed Ted and Sue coming down to spend the evening with us. They started the evening by meeting Tyler at preschool. They got to meet the director, teacher and got a tour of his room. We enjoy hearing what he remembers from his day, which always includes the snack, and seeing what piece of artwork he has completed. Tyler continues to love going to preschool, which has been wonderful. It sure makes it fun to send him, instead of anxiety provoking!
Tyler has really enjoyed playing with two neighbor sisters, Baeleigh (8)and Braden (11)lately. Today, I was working on the yard, then cleaning the house. I kept catching Tyler standing in our yard or on the porch gazing longingly toward their house. He said several times that he hoped they would notice him, but they hadn't yet. I urged him to yell to them or go over and ask them to play, but he was too shy. So, when they came over to ask him to play, he jumped at the chance.

We've had a nice start to our holiday weekend.

how cute about Tyler "staring longingly at the neighbors hoping they would notice him." And I am REALLY excited you are having a girl!
