We just recently heard back from our doctor regarding the last blood draw monitoring my antibody levels and it is GOOD! I have been a little on edge about this one since this is the time in our pregnancy with Thad that we discovered I have KELL antibodies that could harm the baby and any future babies. Thankfully, Thad was okay (my levels topped out at about 8:1, which is considered watchable, but not dangerous -- at 16:1 we would start seeing a specialist). My last blood draw at 28 weeks showed a titre level of 1:1 (which means my blood could be diluted 1 time and the antibodies would be undetectable) -- that is about the lowest possible! Thank you Lord! It seems that this little baby most likely has the same blood type as his mommy and therefore will not be harmed by the antibodies in my blood.

I sometimes forget the attention you draw when you are obviously pregnant (as opposed to the before-pregnancy-waddle). Today at Costco, while walking through the produce section, I had a sudden stabbing pain. Now, don't worry, I was sure I wasn't going in to labor. BUT, when you are caught off guard by intense, uncomfortable pain during pregnancy you can't help but display a painful expression -- which is exactly what happened, accompanied by closing eyes, gripping stomach, and waiting for pain to pass. Ready to resume my shopping, I selected a bunch of bananas and glanced over my shoulder as I placed them in the cart. Watching me intently was a young couple I noticed walking towards me before the pain hit. It struck me as funny since they looked ready and willing to call 911 at any moment. I suppose before you have children any pregnant woman displaying pain is cause for immediate action. It is good to know there are people out there ready to help a stranger in need, but lets hope that doesn't happen for another good two or three months!

1. Put fingers in the butter dish ready and waiting for Thanksgiving feast
2. Get into (and somehow open) bleach and windex while mommy is in shower -- thankfully none ingested
3. Crush a dried flower arrangement in guest bedroom all over the carpet
4. While mommy is cleaning up said flower arrangement, take bites out of pear in Thanksgiving centerpiece
5. Put fingers in butter... again
6. Pull a statue from bookshelf causing it to break
7. Take more bites out of centerpiece (along with a few grapes for variety)
8. And lastly, look so darn cute and innocent that mommy won't be able to do more than scold and try to keep up even more!

Enjoying a fabulous dinner of BBQ Baby Back Ribs. Yummmmmmm......
Tip for all you with young boys: Tell them you are having dog bones for dinner. They were a HUGE hit with Logan!

Its been a little over a week now from the big Washington State Apple Cup between the Cougars and the Huskies. Can you guess who our family was cheering for?? Logan insisted on going to Nana and Papa's house as a football man and performed various football-man moves for us throughout the game. We were all expecting a boring game considering each team had a terrible season, but it turned out to be a great game!
