Moms, Music and Midwives

Finally things are starting to slow down. We've had a crazy few weeks with both our moms in town (at the same time), the Austin City Limits Music Festival and a midwife's appointment. Amy's dad is coming in this weekend and then we are done with the family visitors until Bit's arrival.


We had a great time at the festival. A crazy mix of weather days (some with sun and some with rain). But all in all it was a great weekend of music. We tried to make the most of it because we both realized we wouldn't be able to attend the 3 day music festival next year.

The bands that I loved that I had never heard of before were: Phoenix, Avett Brothers, Mute Math and Black Joe Louis and the Honey Bears.


We had a great time with our moms in town. My mom came in first and went to ACL and Amy's mom came later in the week. We did lots of shopping and eating. We even found sometime to tour some small towns around Austin and be goofy. This was the first time our moms have met and I think it went great. Both are VERY excited about Bit's arrival.

We had our latest appointment yesterday. Bit seems to be doing well and getting bigger. We go in on Wednesday for an ultrasound to make sure Bit is gaining weight but based on the increase in belly size I think that we'll see a bigger baby than last time. Bit is still breach which makes sense since I'm feeling all the kicks down low and I'm not having that I have to go to the bathroom all the time feeling. I'm sure Bit will decide to do a somersault sooner or later.

We'll be back to posting more regularly and following up on all your goings on now that things have settled.

i heard last night in our birth class that if an acupuncturist puts a smoking needle in your little toe, the baby starts moving like crazy. 85% of the time is get them to flip head down:) just an idea if bit doesn't flip. but i've got my fingers crossed for you!

OMG, the post pics have totally thrown me for a loop. This WHOLE time (gosh we've been on bbc for about 2 years together right?) I've had the two of you mixed up. From your profile pic, I thought you were the other person. It's so weird now to rearrange that in my head.

Come on bit, flip! It's not so bad being upside down with your head on a bag of pee for a few months.
