Princess Perks

Her Highness is gradually feeling better about being the only Pretty Princess to reign in our Land of Noise.


We have wonderful friends, who shall be referred to as the "Olds" (for their protection). They are such a fun bunch to be around. Recently, they invited us up to their lake house for the day. We had a blast. Bert stayed behind with Hail since some golf tournament was on that day, which was actually fine by me. Yes, three at the lake is still relaxing and a much needed break. Especially when Hail is not one of those three!








Dancing on the dock-- Boats passing by have actually stopped to watch these two "perform."


Of course, more of this never hurts when trying to feel better about a situation....
Her Highness and I were treated to a Girl's Night with "our" BFF Dixie. We had planned to have dinner, get pedicures then go for dessert. What we didn't plan was the following...


The Little Mermaid had done too much flipping in the pool and created a major dread-lock in the back of her hair. There was no way to get it out, except to cut it. Fortunately, she loved it! Afterwards, the three of us completed our much needed dinner/pedi/dessert run. Gotta love some Snow Biz! (Yes my face is already starting to swell. It will only get worse in the next 20 weeks, thanks for asking.)

Her Highness had one more item on her royal list of things to do...



She now has pierced ears!
This Pretty Princess is finally able to speak of her new brother without tears filling her eyes. She enjoys thinking up names for him. And, when we see newborns she gets excited and says, "Will our new brother be that small, really?"
A couple of days ago she said, "Momma, it's just not fair. Now I'll have to wait until I'm SEVEN before I get a baby sister." I spewed my coffee all over the couch.
Bert's response: "What's one more when you already have five? People already think we're crazy."
--Yes, and you five are the reason.

So glad she's coming around. The haircut is adorable and you look amazing. People that look that good pregnant should keep having babies.

LOVE the new 'do! She's getting so big, I just can't believe it! You have GOT to post some baby pictures of them all, so we can look back before the newbie gets here! OMG, I STILL remember getting her newborn pic in my email! STOP GROWING, EVERYONE! I've threatened Braxton, saying I was going to put bricks on his head to make him stop growing!

I love you, and face swelling or not, you're still BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Her hair is adorable, you do NOT look fat, and it's so great to see 2 of my greatest girl friends from the ol college days hanging out. Wish I could be there with you!

What a fun girl's night!! I cannot wait to do fun girly things like that when Brooke & Abigail get older!!

By the way, Abigail arrived last Thursday weighing a honking 9lbs (only big compared my 6lb 1oz and 6lb 10oz babies) and 21 1/2 inches long. I ended up not having an epidural - although, I think I did ask for it twice :). It was SOOOO much better afterwards - I was cleaned up, dressed and nursing within 30 minutes after delivery.

You and Bert are definitely our heroes!! You have such sweet and pretty babies!! I think Jordan and I are just addicted to having babies :) Sorry for the book - my email address is ladygray@bellsouth.net. Talk to you soon!
