One more week until we leave for MD. The girls are super excited, and I'm looking forward to the break. It's nice to have other adults around to help look after the girls.

Abby's hit another lonely patch. She's really craving girlfriends that are her age or slightly older. I told her we could try to get a small group of homeschooling girls that are 6 or 7 together once a week to play and do simple crafts. Abby was really excited by the idea, so I'll see what I can do.

I had my sonogram today. The baby looks good, and we found out the gender. It's a girl! Three girls! Oh my. I do need to go back in three weeks to get a clearer look at her heart. The little thing was moving around so much the woman was having problems measuring.

I feel more relaxed and settled now that we know we're having another girl. But, oh my, three girls! Abby was a little disappointed about having another sister. She really wanted a brother. Vera was like, ahh whatever. I was happy the girls got to see the sonogram. Abby was totally engrossed by the process. There's two TVs, a keyboard, and lots of buttons. :) The tech turned on the 3d sonogram the last few minutes to get a good shot of the baby's face and head. We saw her yawn in 3d! So awesome.

On weaning. I really stepped up weaning. I have no milk left, and when Vera does nurse it's not nursing to get milk. It's the soft comfort nursing. I'm all about distraction distraction. So Vera nurses before bed and in the mornings if she is still in bed after waking. Vera is still waking every night at least once crying, but she doesn't ask to nurse. We're getting there.

Scott and I got Abby her Rebecca doll and Vera the Bitty Baby. They are going to be so happy this holiday. We're going down to MD on Christmas Eve. The girls are so excited and Abby is counting down the days. I'm looking forward to a nice break. :)

I'm half way through this pregnancy. :) December 10th is the sonogram. I can't wait.

I don't think we're ever going to get around to fixing iphoto. To see photos, you'll have to befriend me on Facebook.

Abby's on break this month. It's nice not to worry about lessons.

Thanksgiving was very low key this year. Scott had to work on Thanksgiving, so we celebrated on Friday with close friends.

Weaning. Ugh. Vera wakes up once a night crying. I'm exhusted. Honestly I don't know how she makes it through the day. But we are making progress. Vera nurses to sleep, and sometimes nurses in the morning. Her crying at night has gone from an hour to about ten to twenty minutes. Scott warms up a small glass of milk for her, and then I snuggle her until she stops crying and falls back asleep. We're getting there. I think the bunk beds will really help. I have a feeling the girls will end up in the same bed, which will help Vera sleep I hope.
