about 1 year ago aaron and i decided to get rid of our tv. weird, we know. but we started reading out loud to each other in place of randomly flipping through the channels (usually stopping at discovery channel's survivorman, which they have since discontinued so good riddens to the tv!) we have had the opportunity to read some great books, and just finished another fun one - Endurance by Alfred Lansing, the true story of a crazy, shipwrecked Antarctic expedition from 1914-1916. do yourself a favor and put this on your to-read list. we loved it. and what should we read next? any suggestions?

okay, so i got really excited last night. i'm due 3 weeks from tomorrow! yahoo!! this cute little boy is really coming!! and clearly my tummy growth has slowed, because i'm not any bigger this time than last time at this point. weird!

this time 36 weeks + 5 days
last time 36 weeks

and emery is in such a cute phase right now. she is such a good girl and i'm so lucky to be her mom. here are a few videos of her doing two of her favorite things - counting and singing, just because she's funny.


em counting (1, 3, 4, 6, 1, 8, 1, ....)



singing "I am a child of God" - her favorite song. When we ask her what song she wants to sing before prayers in the morning she always says "God". Pretty cute.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I read it out loud to David on a road trip this summer and we both LOVED it.

We don't have a TV either! Steve loves it when I read to him, but I usually get frustrated because my eyes can read a lot faster than my lips, so my eyes keep wanting to jump ahead. :)

I'm all about reading out loud to kids these days--I haven't thought much about what would be good for adults to read aloud for much too long. I did read Les Miserables to Alan when we were driving to NC though. It was great--even though I didn't have a clue on French pronunciation. You look so cute, Britty babe! I can't wait to see baby boy Wilk. I vote for Acel.

I can't believe how big little Emery is. She sounds so old being able to count and sing and all that. I also can't believe that your little boy is so close to coming. Obviously, this post has left me shocked!
