This week...

1. Faith felt the baby move for the first time. And now she tries to get him to move by baby talking at my stomach.
2. Aforementioned stomach is getting bigger and huge-er and gargantuan even though I have 17 weeks left and I'm scared, people. Scared that come mid-October I'm going to be one of those pregnant women that you shudder at when you walk past. And don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about, either. 
3. We went downtown the day of the first NBA finals game.  TJ bought all three of us Thunder t-shirts and I honestly feel guilty to wear it because I care so little about basketball.

4. We got to spend several days this week with all three of us and had lots of fun. But we got Faith's nap scheduled screwed up and paid for it dearly today.  I was washing dishes and TJ was researching on the computer and somehow she snuck out of her room into the bathroom, got a bunch of creams and rubbed them all over her window.  I honestly have no idea how TJ didn't see or hear her; he must've been in the zone.  She is such a little raccoon these days- I thought she was too old for that.  Apparently three is the perfect age to drive your parents crazy! 
5. My niece came down to see us and we made bleached-out shirts.  They are really easy and would be a fun craft to do while hanging out with friends.  Of course, we stole the idea off of a blog because who had original ideas these days.  (I'm sure there are a million tutorials- I used Ashley Ann's Under the Sycamore blog.) This is my niece and she made a hunger games shirt.  My mom made a super cool Thunder shirt (she actually is a fan, unlike me), but I don't have a picture of hers.

6. I am a member of a book club.  One that I actually attend and talk at.  Crazy things are happening around here, people. Do any of you remember when my new year's resolution was to read more. Yeah, I kicked that resolution's arse!
7. I am reading a life changing book right now.  More soon, promise.
8. I chickened out of the Color Me Rad 5K for this summer because a)I'm going to be ugly pregnant and b)I don't want to walk my first 5K.  
9. Faith had her first dentist appointment and rocked it out!  No cavities and the dentist and her assistant said she did the best of any child they've ever seen.  We have been talking up "Dr. Robin" (I'm sure she appreciates us calling her by her first name) at our house for some time now and we were both SUPER proud of her when we left.  I wanted to reward her with ice cream, but then decided that might actually be counterproductive. Also, I realized, I just wanted ice cream and it probably had nothing to do with her dentist visit. 
10. Monday after getting home from MDO we realized Faith had left her blanket at school.  Her teacher lives right down the road from us and dropped it off at our house.  Don't you just love small towns?!?! I do!
11. Had dinner and time with my best, most wonderful friend, Corrie.  With her I just feel at home.  

TJ and I have just been sick about what to do with Faith and her school situation I blogged about recently.  We checked into other places around town, but nothing seemed to feel right or were too expensive for us right now.  Bummer.  Faith went to school last week and came home and told us she didn't play with anyone all day because none of her friends were there.  (Apparently several families left when they found out her teacher might not be returning.)  We were super-bummed and were struggling with what to do about the whole situation, BUT we got to school on Monday and Faith and her little friend ran to each other and just loved on each other.  So sweet and her moma told us that her daughter had done the same thing when we were out of town. So she does have friends there are named a few more to me that afternoon. THEN, and this is the big one,  we found out this week that her teacher IS COMING BACK IN THE FALL! Thank you, Jesus!  She saw TJ's sister at the Post Office (other reason I love living in our small town) and told her to tell us she is coming back!  God seriously answered some major prayers with that one and we are so thankful.  We love Ms. Andrea!
