So, I don't even remember the last time I blogged. Let's just say it's been a while! Here's a taste of what's been going on in our neck of the woods:
We went to Utah in June to visit family. It was a nice visit, and it took advantage of Eli's two weeks off for the summer. We left the day after he took his huge and super important boards. I am happy to report that we have since gotten the score and he did very well on it, like we all knew he would!
This is the only way for Caroline to go to sleep. She takes the "penguin jammies" as we call them, and puts the on backwards with the zipper towards the back. They are too small for her to actually wear anymore, but she likes to pull one sleeve down to cover her hand and put that soft fabric up by her nose. Don't ask me how this started. I have no idea.
My mom was kind enough to pick up Caroline and I on her way to visit my sister Alaina in North Carolina. We had fun, Caroline really enjoyed their nice house, all the trains and boy toys they had, their new puppy, and learning how to be a bit more mischievous from her cousin Oliver! It was so cute to see them playing together. One day they spent a couple hours taking every toy they could find and putting it in the pack n' play she was sleeping in. She's never really continuously played with another kid like that. It was really fun though!
Caroline got a new helmet and a tricycle as a reward for filling up her potty chart. She loves both, but has a hard time working the pedals. She'll figure it out though!
The biggest news for us though is that we are having another baby! She's a girl, due December 16th. I can't say this pregnancy has been as easy as Caroline's. Case in point; I'm writing this at 1:30 in the morning because I've got some bad heartburn tonight and the little one won't stop kicking me, and I can not get comfortable! We are really excited to have another girl and to have sisters!
We went on the pedestrian bridge across the Ohio river. It was so nice! If anyone ever comes to visit us we will take them there!
That's about all. Eli's started his third year, which is no longer lectures, classes and tests. He is doing 6-8 week rotations with different specialties. So far he's done Internal Medicine and is currently on his surgery rotation. He's been doing well and really enjoys being in the hospitals with real patients and seeing what it's actually like. But the poor guy is so tired because he still has to study when he gets home! As I'm typing this he is at the hospital, on call for more than 24 hours. Surgery is the most demanding rotation though, and considerate man that he is, set it up so he could have it done before the baby is born. I'm so proud of him for how hard he works. We've gotten pretty boring over the past couple months however, both of us are so tired all the time! I'll try to be more regular with the blog. Thanks for reading!
