Wow, what a day! My parents are in town this week so we had a special early birthday celebration for Lily Kate. This morning we went to Chuck E Cheese and played games and opened presents and had a blast. I like this picture below because Parks and my dad are really into the games and Lily Kate is just waiting patiently.
I know I'm biased, but isn't she just beautiful! One of the gifts she got is Elmo Live. He talks and dances and moves very realistically, LK was quickly very attached.
Lily Kate and her Nona! And here's us below eating cake and pizza at Mellow Mushroom. We had to go next door for lunch. We just couldn't bring ourselves to eat the Chuck E Cheese pizza when Mellow was right next door.
This is still how Charlotte spends most of her day. Tomorrow is her 2week birthday! I promise the picture above was taken in the morning, I am getting dressed during the day at this point :)

This is what Lily Kate calls "huggle time". Huggle time is something she learned from Parks, they basically lie in bed and talk and wrestle some. Every few days she asks if she and Charlotte can have huggle time. I have been more than impressed with her gentle spirit towards Charlotte. She calls her "seetheart" and "monkey" and loves to hold her and kiss her and we've even gotten her to let us know when she's all done holding her so that she doesn't just dump her off her lap anymore. She really is a fantastic big sister.

We went to the doctor today and my induction date was set for next Friday, Jan 16th. Unless we get a pleasant surprise we'll meet our little Charlotte in 9 days. Tonight I kept telling Lily Kate, "you're going to meet your sister next Friday!" and she would just laugh and say "Noooo" - the same "Noooo" she says when we ask her if she's a chicken or if we can eat her little thighs for dessert. I'm starting to wonder if she thinks this whole baby coming out thing is nonsense too. We'll see :)

I can't believe this is the only picture I took at my baby shower this weekend. The table was so pretty (& look at the diaper cake!) that I took a picture when I first got there and then, of course, I had so much fun that I didn't take another the whole time. It was great though, it is always overwhelming to feel so loved and helped at the same time. We are VERY grateful.
I have my 39 wk dr apt on Wed and, because Lily Kate was 8lb 6oz, they say they might let me make an induction appointment right around my due date (1/14) instead of a week later. Mom and Dad will get here on Sat, the 17th, so I'm praying that they'll let me come in and have her the 15th or 16th. We'll see, ultimately God will order the days - not me - and Charlotte will come when she comes. We'll have a baby girl by the end of the month, at least we know that. We'll keep you posted!
