I've been dreaming of tomato sandwiches... just a few slices of fresh tomato with mayo, salt and pepper on two slices of bread.
Pat and I are going to see Jimmy Buffett on Monday at the Nissan Pavilion outside of Washington, D.C. Buffett is one of Pat's favorite performers... along with Genesis, Led Zepplin and others of the 70s era. He says I have strange music tastes, but he's right there with me.

We took Savannah to Harrisonburg today because we had some errands to run and thought it would be different than going to Charlottesville. We had two highlights - the most important was that we got to spend a little time with Savannah's cousin, Samantha (who is a senior at James Madison University).

I'm sorry it took so long for me to post pictures of our newest one... who appears to be the picture of good health. Unless you're under a rock, on vacation or ignoring your email or phone calls, you probably already know that we're having a boy (or have a 95+ percent chance of having a boy).

We have another appointment to look in on the littlest member of our household tomorrow. This time we'll see him or her in 3-D so the doctor can make sure the baby doesn't have any signs of serious medical problems.

I noticed Savannah had gotten really quiet earlier this evening and I looked down to find that she had once again attacked my box of tissues. Tissues are something that every pregnant woman needs because she never knows when a commercial, song or thought might send her into a barrage of tears!

We just got back from depositing Savannah's piggy bank proceeds (and some change collected from Grammy, Grandaddy and Aunt Debbie this weekend) into her savings account.
Sunday, August 17, 2008
We're having a great time visiting Grammy and Grandaddy (or as Savannah says Papa) in Virginia Beach this weekend. Aunt Debbie came to pick Savannah and I up yesterday and it was nice to have time to spend with her this weekend as well.

I've been thinking about my Daddy a lot in the last week... can't tell you why, but I have. I was searching through Allison Krauss videos and found this one.
On my flight from Charlotte to Atlanta on June 13, I couldn't help but be in wonder by all the beautiful clouds I saw. All I could think of was this was probably the time when we would finally lose Daddy.
I didn't realize it at the time, but Daddy died just before we got on the plane.
I saw this video and had to post it.
Savannah and I emptied her piggy bank today so we could put it in her savings account in Virginia Beach on Monday. Inside the bank were four pounds of coins and bills her father and I (mostly her Daddy) have put in there over the last few months.
Savannah and I are leaving tomorrow for a four-day trip to see Savannah's grandparents in Virginia Beach. We'll be riding down with Aunt Debbie and Pat will be joining us after work tomorrow night.
I guess I wasn't cut out to be a crash-test dummy!

We have a dancer on our hands. I think Pat has always hoped Savannah would be a tomboy... like my Daddy wanted me to be. But I can tell you that Savannah is much more of a little girl than I ever was...

It's so hard to believe that this time two months ago Savannah and I were en route to Georgia... trying to get to Daddy's bedside. I had called the hospital that morning and he didn't feel up to speaking with me... I knew that wasn't a good sign and woke Pat up to tell him that I needed to get home.
Pat had a doctor's visit today and was expecting to have his blood drawn, but I was the only one who ended up being poked and prodded today!

I've been telling Pat how fortunate we are to have a wonderful, healthy daughter and to now be expecting a second child. There are many people who try for years and are never able to have a child of their own.

I'm proud to say Savannah has started sleeping in her own bed through the night. It's been wonderful to have our bed baby-free as I worry about her somehow falling off of the bed.

We got a chance to peek in on Baby Bean today... and he or she is growing right on schedule. The baby is now 10 weeks, 3 days old (which is what I expected), and the due date is March 2.
Pat came home tonight and discovered that during the day someone had stolen six of our pathway lights. They apparently walked half way up the driveway and took the lights out of the ground.
I thought I had seen almost everything strange and unusual that deals with Elvis, but today topped anything I've ever seen.

People always talk about heroes and I've had many of them that have passed through my life over the years... they have helped mold me into the wife, mother and friend that I've become.
Pat and I went to Kroger today to fill up our gas tanks (they give a nice discount if you buy groceries from them - $3.53 a gallon).
Savannah had a great visit to the doctor today (even if she had to miss her swimming class). She weighed in at 24.11 lbs. and is 30.25 inches tall (2 feet 6.5 inches tall). She is in the 75th percentile for children her age and right where the doctor wants her to be.

Savannah must miss her swimming class in the morning and instead go in for her 15-month check-up. I knew it was coming up, but there was no way to move it to a later date or time or we would have gone into next month.

Savannah started her second week of swimming lessons today and she's off to another good start. She was the first baby to learn how to jump into the water and go under... and she did it several times in a row before she got aggravated.

I'm a planner... Pat and anyone who knows me well will tell you that. I like to think about things long before they happen... maybe even over think (or obsess) about them.
