our life lately

Well, blogging obviously hasn’t been a top priority for me lately.  In case you’re interested, here’s a summary of our (super interesting and unbelievably exciting) (not really) life from the last few weeks. :)

Last week Eric and I were blessed with a date night!  We ate at Stagecoach Inn (such a cozy, old-school restaurant) in Manitou Springs.  I ordered fish & chips (totally a pregnancy thing) and we actually enjoyed some unhurried, quiet conversation.  (Aaahhh.)  Then we saw the latest Mission Impossible at the IMAX.  (Loved it.)  It was a fun, relaxing evening.

This was after we left the theater -- we didn't eat at the Asian Bistro...but we thought it would make a fun (fuzzy phone) picture. :)

My mother-in-law came for a quick visit over the weekend.  We had a wonderful time!  (The kids were especially excited when they learned that their Lao-Lao would be sleeping in their room on the bottom bunk.  Sleepover parties are the best!) :)

Sunday afternoon we all walked around the outdoor 16th Street Mall in Denver (a fascinating place to people watch.)  We happened to run into Robo Mike (who apparently is quite famous in these parts) and he kept us laughing for a good while.

You probably can't tell, but the kids were slightly terrified. It took a few minutes of coercing to get them to stand right next to Robo Mike! (His character was a bit unnerving, I have to admit!)

I finally had my tooth pulled earlier this week.  I’m so happy to have it out of my mouth (and I’ll be even happier when my jaw stops aching!)  The procedure was surprisingly bearable, and it (you know, the gaping hole in my gums) seems to be healing as it should.  Thankful!

At my midwife appointment yesterday, everything checked out fine.  The baby is head down and still kicking like crazy!  My blood pressure is still ridiculously low and I’m measuring right on track for 34 weeks.  I’m grateful to be blessed with another healthy pregnancy.  And I can’t believe how quickly it’s going by.  (Although the kids says it’s taking “soooo long!”  They can’t wait to meet their new little sibling!)

Speaking of little siblings, Boulder Boy is getting four new teeth!  I didn’t notice until a few days ago, when he couldn’t keep his fingers out of his mouth and seemed a bit cranky.  I’ll try to get a picture of his TEN little chompers sometime soon.

That’s all for now!  Hopefully it won’t be another week and a half before the next update. :)

    Glad you out for a date night! Sounds like it was a “real” date too…no grocery shopping or hardware store stops! :)

      Can’t get more “real” than dinner and a movie, right? :) It was so much fun…I think knowing that it might be our last date night before the baby comes made it *that* much more special!
