Here's a pic of the little man hiding in the bookshelf this weekend with mommy's phone... although if you ask him, he will tell you it is his by boldly saying, "Miiiiiine!" This new word, much the old favorite of "No" is getting really old, really fast. He is definitely wanting to be much more independent and do things on his own... But he was just too cute in this picture to get mad.
Things are fine here in KC. Gus had a Parents as Teachers meeting last week that went really well. It was strange to talk with our liaison about what our meetings will be like once the new baby arrives. The weekend was enjoyable. Josh had to work on Saturday, but we managed to get some good family time in. Gus was awesome at church on Sunday, which was oh so needed, as Josh and I were about to throw in the towel. He has been so bad at church the last few months. It is just impossible to keep his little body and mind calm for an hour, and he is too young for the children's service during mass. The secret we discovered: Bring him to church hungry so he just eats the whole time!
Today I had another appointment; luckily I passed my glucose test with flying colors. Everything is great, baby's heartbeat was regular and I am feeling good. I go back in 3 weeks, and then every 2 weeks after that (until the 36 week mark, when I will go every week). Still can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going.
Josh and I got new phones today, BlackBerries, so we are having fun playing around with those. I start classes back up on Wednesday, and am sooooo ready for it! This break has been painfully long. I hate to complain about having a month off, but seriously, it has felt like two.
Well, take care everyone, and we'll be in touch soon!

Gus, saying both "No" and "Mine."

Funny how they are obsessed with cell phones and they play ones just don't cut it.

Hi, this is kinda weird but when I googled "Traci Mccollom Dillavou" this is the site I found.

My name is also Tracy and I am a current thesis graduate student at UNI. I picked up your thesis today because our projects are actually quite similar and was wondering if you and I could email back and forth about a couple things.

My email:

Cute family - congrats on the baby :) Again, hopefully this isn't too strange!!!
