Countdown Continues!

September 29, 2010


Today is Sept 29. Firstly, it is Grammie Dubbs’ birthday and will always be special to me for that reason. Secondly, it is precisely 3 months from the “expected” delivery date of one Karter Kaye Rinker! Karter’s official due date has been moved to Jan 5, but I have been told that the doctor performing […]

BIG sisters need BIG girl beds!

September 28, 2010


As promised, a little more on Jordan and her big girl bed… Saturday, Night 1 in the big girl bed: Mima and Jordan picked out the perfect big girl bed for Jordan to transition to BEFORE Baby Karter arrives and there’s a struggle around who gets to sleep in the crib. (Jordan has demanded that […]

BIG weekend for a BIG sister!

September 28, 2010


We had such a great weekend with Steve (Mipa) , Dee Dee (Mima), and Brittney (Aunt) Rinker this weekend!

They seemed to enjoy their man time working […]

Even if it’s not bad, it doesn’t mean it’s good

September 14, 2010


Today’s appointment was… interesting. I am 24 weeks into my pregnancy, and I’ve gained 20lbs (plus what the doc doesn’t know about before my first appointment). That’s pretty hefty if you’re targeting 25-35 full term, which my doctor is… but it’s no where near the path to 96lbs full term, which still pleases me a […]

Well on my way to almost there!

Jared FINALLY got to feel Karter kick this weekend! Before Jordan was born, Jared’s presence made her kick like crazy. It wasn’t uncommon for her kicks and punches to wake him up in the middle of the night if I rolled over to face him and my belly brushed up against him. (Yes, if you’re […]
