As it gets closer to baby-time I've been trying really hard to focus on doing stuff with just Kaylie. For the 24th of July we took her to her first movie..."Up" and I have to say that was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time (I highly recommend it). Kaylie loved it so much she's been asking me everyday ever since to watch it again. Then on Saturday even though it was like a thousand degrees outside, I finally got the energy to take her outside for some simple pleasures....sprinklers. She's always been too timid to run through them but she loved it on this super hot day.
It wasn't too long before she was chasing me with the sprinklers, and then she figured out how to take the sprinkler head off. I love this picture with the hose in her armpit, she's so odd (she gets it from Jacob).

It's funny how it's always the small, simple things in life are the things you enjoy the most.

-Update on Baby #2: He's gaining weight...yay!!! (That's a good sign). However, we still expect him to be on the small side. The calcification of the placenta has slowed way down, and he's still moving a ton (Another good sign). I was really worried that I was going to have to have C-Section this week because of all the problems, but thanks to blessings, and prayers we've seen a significant turn around. But like my doctor said, we won't be completely happy until we get this little boy delivered. Which is only a few weeks away.
-Update on Chinese Water-Torture: The same day I posted the pictures of the lovely hole in our yard was the day we "really" experienced problems. That night when I was getting Kaylie to bed I noticed that the toilet was running and when I had Jacob come to look at it, he told me that we had no water pressure and to run and check on the pipes that the plumbers had been working on all day. So I went out to find the plastic pressure valve they had put on the pipes earlier had popped off, and we had basically a fire hose of water shooting out the pipes and we had a pool, because the hole had filled up and was overflowing. (I would have pictures, but this was at night and was way too dark). I freaked out because that meant our basement apartment was going to seriously flood at any second.
To make a really long story, short: it took us about 45 minutes to figure out how to turn off the water and stop "old faithful". We had to get into the man-hole in our front yard because it was the main water valve. Then we waited for the plumber to come pump out our pool, but after an hour of waiting, we had done it ourselves..."uggg". Fortunately, because of this mess we found out that it was something else that was leaking into our fireplace, and our apartment never flooded. Bad news, I still had to battle with mold for a week to kill it all (tough stuff to kill, but it is possible.) Soooooo, hopefully (knock on wood) all these "water problems" are over with. And they should be because we officially have a whole new plumbing system.
All I have to say is, you've gotta just love life!

They should give you free rent for that chaous! Kaylie is so cute, she makes me laugh so hard, and she totally gets her weirdness from you, not Jacob.
