We are officially sugar free! least I am. Ned is too, but only because he's a very supportive husband who feels bad for his diabetic wife. Because of my GD, I have to have a very specific amount of carbs at very specific times throughout the day. Not exactly what you want to hear as a 7 month preggy who's finally getting over nausea and starting to have cravings. This is what we're living off of these days: It doesn't look all that bad, but try eating it every day for the next 2 1/2 months! It's a great diet, though- I'm pregnant and I've already lost 6 lbs! As soon as this baby comes we're having a pizza, pasta, cake, and ice cream party- anyone coming?

Tummy Pictures

For those of you (ahem- mom, dad) complaining that I never post any tummy pictures, here you go:Here is Rob and Lori's new baby, Austin. He is so sweet and tiny-only 2 days old!

Catch up! (Warning: TONS of pictures!)

I know I'm a month behind (to the day!) but I finally got around to emptying my camera, and here's what we have:

This is our annual 4th (3rd this year) of July picnic with Paul & Rosie's family:We played Texas-sized Foosball.Ned and Kaylene fought over it:Keri, Lela, and I were goalies:The kids cheered from the sidelines:Next came the jalapeno eating contest which actually included flamin' hot cheetos, wasabi peas, fresh and bottled jalapenos, pablanos, serranos, and crushed red pepper flakes!Ned was all geared up for it.He made a valiant effort......but he was no match for the tar-lined stomach of Daniel. He was eating it so fast, you can't even see his hands!We even had confetti eggs!Poor Avery was NOT a fan!She did, however, enjoy cleaning it up.We all went over to Rob and Lori's to watch fireworks from there back yard and to light a few of our own too!
