A perfect Saturday

Even though it was cold, we decided to walk down to the beach this morning. So, we threw on our coats, (leaving the girls in their warm pj's) and headed out for a great morning! We dropped into the post office to pick up a package and then decided to have muffins, hot chocolate, and pancakes at The Boathouse next door. We ate outside on the sidewalk cafe area and the girls loved it! After we finished our breakfast, we walked the 1 block down to the beach and collected low-tide seashells.
What a great morning!

Father's Day gift

I thought it would be fun to give Bruce some photos for Father's Day this year. So, while we were in Houston, my friend Kelsey took these beautiful photos! (see Kelsey Call Photography to the right...) She does beautiful work! Thanks, Kelsey!!
Bruce went to Singapore last month for business and brought back these dresses for Haylee and Grace. Aren't they the cutest?!
Happy Father's Day, Bruce!

Oh, baby!

I know this sounds crazy, but I have to admit that I am having so much more anxiety about this little baby girl than I have with my last two! I think it's because - mainly - by the third time around I know just what to expect. Infants are hard work! I'm not sure I'm up to the challenge also having a 1 and a 2 year old. Yikes!
I saw my doctor this past week and he said this could very easily be a September baby - being that it's my third and my due date is the first week of October. Holy smokes! That's only 3 months away! Can anyone give me some good mommy-of-three-under-three advice??
Also, Bruce and I are having a super difficult time deciding on a name for this sweet baby girl. We never expected to have three girls, so our top names have, obviously, been used!
So, for everyone who keeps asking, we haven't yet decided, but these are the names on our "list": (in no particular order)
So, what do you think? (About the names....and my anxiety?!)

We're back down under....

...and it's REALLY cold!!! We were swimming less than 48 hours ago in warm Houston and now we're all bundled up! However, we can't complain because we had a sunny day today! Hooray! (During a Melbourne winter the sun is only out 10% of the season, so it was great to have a sunny - but very cold - day.)
The trip back went well. Haylee and Grace were little champs for such a long and exhausting trip. It feels good to be back in our home, sleeping in our own beds, but we sure do miss our family and friends back in Houston!
