oh baby!

Happy spring! Or is it winter again? Since yesterday I think the temperature has dropped about 25 degrees! Things are good in the Crowe household besides a small trip to the hospital on Wednesday. I had a couple of contractions throughout the night and then a TON of braxton hicks throughout the morning. They asked me to come in to be monitored and sure enough they were coming every 5 minutes. Fortunately though we were not progressing in any other way and they gave me a shot to stop the contractions which worked like a charm! Since then things have been smooth sailing though I am on a somewhat restricted regime (less lifting of Maggie and no long walks-BOO). Mom is headed out next week for Easter and the timing could not be better! Hopefully we can get everything crossed off the list in time for baby's arrival (be it early or on time). I did check one thing off my list and got a new diaper bag-yay! I wasn't really sure what I wanted but it definately needed to be a. washable and b. big enough to hold the trimmings and trappings of 2 small children. I found this one at the PX and (since it had birds on it) could not turn it down. Happy Friday!

1. GO STATE!! What a crazy game yesterday! Hoping we can pull out another win against Northern Iowa this week!

2. Spring has come to Virginia!! We had a beautiful (though busy) weekend and are so enjoying the warmer weather and pretty flowers. We got our new stroller and have been giving it lots of time outside. Maggie loves playing with chalk and we have been to the playground everyday.

3. The Crowe kids are growing and growing! Maggie finished up her gymnastics class this morning and did a great job! The teacher encouraged me to sign her up for dance class as soon as she turns 3. How fun will that be? The belly is getting bigger and bigger and #2 seems to be increasing in size everyday. Its hard to believe that my next appt will be the big 36 weeks! My due date is in 6 weeks and I am so looking forward to having Mom here for Easter to help me get everything ready for the debut of baby 2. Somewhat closer to choosing a name though we change our minds weekly :(

4. Happy (belated) Birthday to my dear Grandma Judge! How cool is it that she got an ipad for her 85th Birthday? You are awesome Grandma!! I love you!

Pictures are next!
