26 weeks, 2 days

My stepmom has been here since Thursday and we are enjoying spending time with her. Elijah is absolutely in love with "Gammie." I think he says her name about 4,000 times per day.

Dan and I have gotten spoiled. Meals are being made for us, our walls have been cleaned and we have been able to sleep in and take naps. The help has been wonderful!

My contractions have been inconsistent, which is slightly worrisome. Friday was a record day (not in a good way), but yesterday and today have been a bit better.

We have been spoiled by other family members and friends in the past couple weeks, as well. Last night I cried after opening a thoughtful card from my cousin and aunt (thanks, Jayne, Duke and Cathy) because it was just too perfect (ha, no pun intended!). We have had people stop by with meals and gifts and it all has meant so much to us.

We are going to eat dinner now and watch the movie Up for the second time this weekend. Have a great week, everyone!

Thinking of you guys! The other day Olivia said, "Mom remember when we went to the "seum" with Elijah? I love him..." :)

I wish those contractions would just stop until they're supposed to start!! Just keep up all the're doing awesome!

Love to see the pics of that cute man giggling and having so much fun. I could just eat that boy up!

Glad you're getting some help. Having "gammie" around must be just what the doctor ordered!! ;)
