Okay, so I don't even know if anyone even reads my posts, but I have been a BIG FAT PREGNANT SLACKER!

Where did June go? July is shortly going to be over too!

Updates about the kids - they both had check-ups in June.
Elli weighed in at 28.5 lbs, and was 35 1/4 inches tall. She is doing great and the doctor was so impressed with her verbal skills.
Hank weighed in at 22.5 lbs and was 30 inches tall/long. He has 3 teeth now and the teething is kicking our butts.

We just got back from a trip to NC for our annual 4th of July celebration. It was great to see all of Daniel's family and it wasn't THAT hot down there this time. My parents also came down and we enjoyed the fact that they stayed at a hotel with a pool. We definitely used that to our advantage. I bought Elli a swim vest that you
zip up over her suit and by day two she wouldn't let anyone hold on to her. It made me a little nervous at first, but she did great. I think she swallowed half the pool the first day....but that's okay.

We have a wedding this weekend - thank goodness that it is in Annapolis. I am so excited. It is our friend's Doug and Emma. I am sure that it will be quite the USNA 2000 reunion. I am in the wedding and just picked up my dress tonight. I also made sure to get a matching tie for Daniel so that we can at least be color coordinated! My mom is going to watch the kids for us on Saturday, but they will come with us tomorrow night!

Elli went pee pee on the potty today and she peed A LOT! She almost filled the little potty up. I was so proud of her. But, not more than an hour or so later, she had on her training underpants and she peed all over the kitchen floor. I guess I got my hopes up that this was it!!! I need to remember to buy more treats at the store so when she does go pee pee I can give her the same thing every time instead of offering her whatever I have on hand.

Here are some pictures of us from NC.
