This past weekend was Independence Day. It was such a wonderful weekend. On Saturday, Jordan and I painted our bathroom together. I must say it looks MUCH better as the brown color we painted than it did with the original ugly purple it was when we bought the house. It's amazing how a fresh coat of paint can change your outlook on things.
Saturday afternoon we headed to my parents for a cookout. We had some amazing ribs, potato salad, and baked beans! It was super delicious!! Some family came over later and we enjoyed the best homemade chocolate ice cream I've ever had! We had an amazing firework show on the lake and it was just a wonderful day!!
It was a wonderful celebration of Independence Day and how blessed we are to live in a free country!
On Monday the 4th we had a hamburger cookout at Jordan's parents. It was a really great, relaxing weekend!
To me, the coolest part of the weekend was on Tuesday. I had a doctors appointment with the specialist in Austell. Jordan wasn't able to take the time off work after a holiday, so my wonderful mama was able to go with me! The doctor just wanted to make sure everything was checking out with the baby. I hadn't been to the specialist for 8 weeks, so it's been awhile since I've had an ultrasound to see baby Robert. I must say it was most definitely worth the wait!!
It was absolutely amazing how much he has grown in the last two months. I can't imagine how much he's going to grow in the next 11 weeks! The ultrasound tech was checking all of his organs and other parts of his body. During a short time of the ultrasound she used a 4-D scan to look at the baby's face. She wanted to check his lips to make sure he didn't have a cleft palate. (which he does NOT) It was the most AMAZING thing I have ever seen. She went to his face and we were able to see his face clearly! He is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen in my life. (I'm sure this is a biased opinion, but we'll just go with it) I have daydreamed and dreamed at night of what his face would look like. Then seeing it for the first time made everything so real! I cannot wait to meet him in person and kiss his beautiful face! It is amazing that he already weighs 3 pounds!! He's going to be a big baby like his daddy!!
I do not have a picture of his face from the ultrasound, but I have a dvd of the entire session. I watched the DVD and paused on his face for a long time. He is so beautiful!!
But I must digress..
Until my next blog update, I will leave you with this picture of Baby Robert.

  1. Lydia,
    I am so excited for you and Jordan. When you hold Robert for the first time it will be the most amazing feeling in the world. It will be like your heart on the outside. I remember the first time I held Austin. Boys hold special places in their Mama's hearts. Girls do too, but their is something special about baby boys. Love and miss you!
