We've had a lot of visitors since we've been home and Mia has enjoyed getting to play with friends. Here are some pics with some of her friends.

Cooking with Daddy

Mia enjoyed doing some cooking with Daddy while he was home for the week. They made a blueberry dessert, smoothies, and peach cobbler and it was all good!

Mia had to check on Mollie via the video monitor. She was talking to her and kissing the monitor.

First Bath

Mollie did not enjoy her first bath...she pretty much cried the whole time and of course, Mia didn't like that! Good thing bath time has gotten better since that first one!

10 Quick Pics - Days 1-3

Thru 3+ days everything is going great. Mollie had her first check-up today, and everything went smoothly (a far cry from Mia's 1st appointment). Thank you to everyone that has helped out, visited, called, etc. over the last few days.

Saturday Morning

So, on Friday morning we were all ready to head to UNC and have Mollie. We were scheduled to arrive at 8am for an induction. While on the way, they called and said to take our time and eat breakfast, they were very busy....this was just the start of our waiting. In the end, we came back and forth three or four times, walked the halls and parking decks, went to lunch, went to the Verizon store to get new cells phones and finally went back to UNC at 3:15. They had delivered 12 babies that day. Finally, around 4:30 we got in a room. They did the usual medical hook-ups over the next hour or so and we were just kinda hanging out. It was determined that Jamie was going to deliver drug free. She was not very happy! At about 7:25 daddy was still texting, so pushing had not really started. Mollie was born at 7:39, weighing 8 lbs 5 oz, 20 inches long. It was a quick 14 minutes! Everyone is doing fine. Here are just a few pics. We will post more throughout the day. Thank you God for such a quick delivery and keeping all my girls safe!

We went to the doctor today at almost 39 weeks and found out that I am 3 cm dilated! Since I am favorable and my labor with Mia went very quickly, we have scheduled an induction for this Friday morning, if I make it until then. So Mollie will be here soon! Please keep us in your prayers that everything goes smoothly.

Mia has been a big helper lately. She helped clean the hardwoods and helped wash off the cart for Daddy's tailgating grill. Then she wanted to wash everything else in the garage. She washed her bike and Cookie Monster float. You can tell by the driveway that they are all VERY clean! Here are some pictures:

Independence Day

We had a great Fourth of July weekend! Friday Memaw and Paw Paw came to visit, so we went to dinner with them and Unkie, Aunt Jen, and Mr. Greg. Then we went to the mall and had dessert (well, Daddy wanted to go and order a new phone...). Saturday Daddy, Paw Paw, Unkie and our friend Justin played golf and then we met them for lunch. Then we headed to the pool and stayed there most of the afternoon/evening. After dinner, Memaw and Paw Paw headed home. Sunday we went to church and took naps (Mia's first nap in about 3 weeks), and then we headed out to Carter Finley Stadium for our church's annual get together and then to watch the fireworks show. We forgot our camera, so thank you to our friend Justin for taking some pictures for us! Mia liked the fireworks and actually sat outside for them this year. Last year she watched them from the car! Monday we were excited to have Daddy home for the day so we got some chores done around the house and then headed to the pool in the afternoon. We had fun grilling out dinner with some friends.

Mia and her first sparkler...scared me to death, but Daddy was standing right there with her, and she did really well, and loved it!
