Return to North Carolina

23 Weeks!

Hello Sistas!

It has been a busy summer! First I went home for a month to visit family which was wonderful! After that I went to Washington DC with family and visited other historic sites nearby. My favorite was Mount Vernon, home of George Washington. We walked through his home and all over his estate. It was absolutely beautiful! After that I finally made it to North Carolina!

Baby girl Udy

We found out we are having a little girl and are so excited to meet her in November! I've been enjoying shopping for baby clothes and such! She is quite active and likes to kick after meals. She is especially active after I eat fruit. Maybe she will be ballerina like her mom?

Recently Lance's parents came and visited us. We went to the coast and played at the beach over the weekend and then went to Mount Airy home of Andy Griffith! We had a fun time with his parents. 

This is my sister, Casey. She deployed to Kuwait July 6th. I'm glad I got to spend so much time with her before she left. I'm really grateful for her and the sacrifices she makes for our freedom. She is an inspiration to me and our family. We will see her again next May. God be with her til we meet again! 

I hope you all are enjoying your summer! I look forward to returning to Minnesota (I can't believe I'm actually saying this) where our friends are :-). Hopefully the winter will be kinder to us!

  2. Yay! A girl!!! I am so excited for you! You look great, and I'm glad the headband made it to you so quickly.
