LeBlanc house happenings of the week...

Mary Louise has recently developed quite the maternal instinct...and today, when David was asked, "where's the baby?" by his speech therapist who was holding a picture of a baby, David turned and pointed to my belly! I do believe they are catching on...

We really enjoyed Uncle "Ky-gool"'s visit over the weekend - he came up with an amp-ed up version of one of Mere and Pop's go-to entertain the baby moves...

**A sidenote - I realize that pushing 3 years old means Mary Louise and David aren't technically babies anymore...however, it is more than likely that I'll be calling them "the babies" and the actual baby will develop a host of other nick-names. It's ok to buck the system on occasion...or keeps things a bit more interesting eh? Besides, they'll always be *my babies anyhow! (and we still call my 2 youngest brothers "the little boys" even though, at over 6 feet tall - and in their early and mid-twenties, they are in no way little nor are they boys - just one of those things that stuck)**

And then there's Mary Louise's new dance: she began to do this earlier in the week when her therapists came to get her for their session. David simply runs to the back giggling - but Mary Louise did a little jig similar to the one below sans sound effects. It was a little surprising, and a whole lot of hilarious! (I'm glad she they enjoy therapy so much! ha - gives me something to threaten them with: Me: "Mary Louise! If you don't stop hitting David, you're not going to therapy!" ML: "Ok" ; Me: "David! You need to sit down in your high chair and eat if you want to go to therapy!" David: "Ok" - see? I don't know how long I'll get to ride that roller coaster for, but it sure works like a charm at present! (Notice David the budding football player)

We have done quite a bit of gardening around the patio in an effort to both freshen things up a bit and get into the fall spirit of things. "The babies" are a HUGE help and LOVE to garden and play in the dirt!

More later - David has had 2 sessions with the at home therapist and, in short, I think we'll keep her! Also, we had our first ultra sound yesterday!!! The baby is very healthy and has a great heartbeat - and I am doing well so far too! Many many MANY thanks for the thoughts and prayers throughout this pregnancy. We have a long road to go, but are celebrating each small milestone as they come: last weekend I past the 7  week mark which means the little Suga went from an embryo to a fetus! Yay!
