My dad lavished the children with presents. Which I know he enjoyed doing. I received the neatest gift this year. My Memaw (my dads mom) put together a family history of her side of the family The Daniels and Smiths. I learned something I never knew. Something no one ever mentioned which I find worthy of praise and admiration. My Great Great Grandma had 20 children. Who knew? She was married at the age of 16 and 14 months later at 17 had her first child, Noah Frank. She then just about every year after that had another child. Her 11th child died at birth. Then in the year 1924 she had 4 children, 2 sets of twins!! The first set #'s 13,14 died at birth and the second set #'s 15, 16 were fine. Guess what #'s 19 & 20 were twins as well. 3 sets of twins, 20 children and she only lost 3 at birth. What a neat thing to learn about! She lived to be 66 years old until she and her husband were killed in the 1950 tornado that came through Caster LA. along with their 19th child.
The details of our family have been hard to come by. My moms family, I will never know anything about and the Adams (my dads dad) side seems to be hard to come by as well. There is just something about learning your heritage.
I visited the midwife last Friday, everything looks great. I am measuring 35 weeks and we think the little stinker might be breech. Which makes sense because the last week I haven't felt real well. No big deal though, delivering breech is not all that different than a head first delivery. Although I do hope she turns! Sleeping is becoming harder these days. I got up this morning and felt like I was ready to go to bed LOL. Here is a picture of me at 34 weeks (this morning) ignore the hair, I hadn't put it up yet. ;-)
Well, I'm off to get started with the day. I need to get some things done so that I might be able to lay down with Eve later for a much needed nap!
