Almost Here!

Here is the pic Ryan took of me to document my belly-ness at 39 weeks. Yes, she's almost here! I'm feeling really good. Little discomforts here and there, but not much to complain about.
Nana doesn't get into town until Friday so I'm not "supposed" to jog everyday to encourage her to come out until she gets here. But I jogged almost a mile yesterday and will probably go again tomorrow or Thursday. In the mean time, I'll try to update this here blog on some of our fun fun summer :)

Apparently we weren't as good about documenting my belly progress with my pregnancy with Ashby, but below are my pregnancy at 38 weeks now and then:

The pictures don't show it here, but I definitely was more swollen with Ashby's pregnancy.

Keeping the Kruegers

So sometime in the last year or so we started hanging out with Ryan's cousin Larry and his cute wife Trine and there adorable little Leyna. Ashby and Leyna are not even two weeks apart in age and as soo cute together. As you can see, they have gotten along pretty well from the start.

Then last fall Trine invited me to join her and some other moms in a home based pre-school group. That was so much fun. The girls learned a lot and Trine and I developed a great friendship. Ashby and Leyna were inseprable (when not having normal toddler tiffs) and we tried to get our families together often.

Then last November Kayla was born. Ashby then had two adorable girls to love.

And the more we all got together, the more friendly and comfortable our families have become. We have taken turns having dinner at each others homes. Watched each others kids. And given each other love and support. We even got to go camping together in July.
But Larry felt it time to head back to school and away to New Hampshire they have moved.
So we miss them and wish them many success'. And here is my first of many tries to keep the Kruegers close to home despite the miles.
Bishops + Kruegers = Love
