Update and Baby Bump

Hannah went to the doctor yesterday and got a clean bill of health. She is 29 1/2 inches tall and weighs 20 lbs 5 oz. Hooray! She is only in the 15 percentile but we love our petite little girl. Hannah had three shots and was such a trooper. Daddy held her down for the shots and comforted her afterwards. She even tried a sucker for the first time. (she only had a couple of sucks...) Because I know that no post is complete without pictures of Hannah, I have included this cute picture of Hannah running around outside this afternoon. She loves to just run around and explore. I think she really likes the independence.

I am moving right along with my pregnancy. I won't go back to the doctor for another 11 days or so. I have had requests to post a baby bump picture so here it is. After I took the picture and looked at myself, my belly looks a lot rounder and larger than I thought. The only view I normally see of myself is from the top. ha. Drew is getting cramped in here for sure. I can't wait to meet him. Neither can Josh, or Hannah. Hannah loves to rub my belly and say, "awwww" Now after I deliver I will have to teach her is is NOT okay to lift my shirt and rub my belly. We'll see how that goes.

Not much else news in the Tillman household. It did get to 90 degrees here in Louisville. First time this year I believe.

Please pray for Josh and I as we pray and decide God's will for our lives concerning jobs, housing, moving, not moving, etc. We want to be guided by the Lord and not just make decisions on our own. We love you all!

Hannah Video

Hannah and I went to the park this morning. While I was watching her run around exploring everything I took a short three minute video so you could get the experience of going to the park with Hannah. Click HERE to view.

Enjoy Grandma!

I just realized it had been two weeks since my last update. Our family has been doing good and trying to relax and have some down time between Josh's graduation and Drew's arrival. Hannah is growing and developing more of a personality everyday. She is so cute! I went to a 2nd hand children's store and got Hannah a toddler rocking horse and she thinks he is a dog!

She will pet the yarn mane and make barking noises. She can climb off and on it all by herself. She loves to climb and has become somewhat of a dare-devil!

I also found a cute activity table for Hannah. It has two stools so when Drew is old enough they can both color and do crafts at the table. The table top also comes off and folds inside out and has a chalkboard on one side and a clipboard art side on the other.

I went to the doctor this week and had a good checkup. Everything seems to be fine and Drew is growing on schedule. The doctor set me up to not go back until 3 weeks from now. Not sure why... so my next visit will be at 35 1/2 weeks and then I guess I will start going weekly! The countdown has begun. We are SO excited and him coming. I am pretty much ready for him to arrive!

Not much else is going on. Josh is attending a Christian conference this weekend with his friend AJ (who flew up from Jacksonville to attend) and they are having a good time hanging out.

Hannah goes for her 15 month checkup on Friday. Please pray we get a good report from the doctor on Hannah's health. I am still concerned that she is not gaining enough weight and eating enough healthy foods. We offer her lots of stuff and she puts it in her mouth, but is is spit right back out. Last night I was fishing corn, carrots, and lima beans out of the bottom of her highchair - yuck!

Also please continue to pray for my pregnancy and that I would continue to be healthy and that Drew would be born a healthy baby boy.

Mother's Day

This was my second Mother's Day as a Mommy to Hannah but somehow last year we didn't get any pictures! We were out of town for a wedding and the day was not really my own...
This year we relaxed and had a great time. Hannah gave me a talking card (she thinks they are the funniest thing ever) and a gift card to Motherhood. Josh got me a card with a spa gift certificate! Yahoo! I will be using this soon. The afternoon was topped off by a 2 1/2 hour nap with Hannah. How wonderful!
Here are a few pictures from the day.

Here is Hannah and me at the table at Texas Roadhouse. She was eating yummy yeast rolls. She even ate some of the "baby blossom" and a piece of my steak.

This was Hannah's first time to sit in a booster seat (instead of a highchair) at the booth. I enjoyed being close to her to eat, but I also had to keep an extra eye on my wiggly little girl.

This picture is not from mother's day, but of Satruday when we went to the mall with Grandma and Grandpa to get her ears pierced. They look so cute! See the picture above to see one of her ears with the earing. The store had that cute little mouse for "distraction". Hannah did great and cried only a little bit. Within about 3 minutes she was happy and waving to everyone as they passed by. She hasn't noticed them since!

Josh is enjoying "relaxing" and not studying for school. He is still working full time and even took on a few extra hours of overtime this week. All in all we are looking forward to the next few weeks/months to spend more time as a family and wait for our new addition to arrive. Hopefully in less than 10 weeks! Please continue to pray for the health of our little boy and that he would continue too grow and develop correctly.

Today at 11:15 AM Josh officially became a graduate! Yeah!! Hannah was great and sat, I mean wiggled, through the whole service. I was thankful she made it the whole service. Here are some pictures to enjoy.

Here is our family after touring the Mohler home.

The proud graduate and his wife.

Josh and his parents after the ceremony.

The graduate and his proud daughter. She didn't know what to think of the cap and tassle.

Our family with Dean Jimmy Scroggins. (I feel short...)

Of course Hannah had to try on Daddy's cap before he had to give it back...

It is May!

Today has been a beautiful sunny day with a high of about 80 degrees. It is finally warming up and I am so excited about that!
In my last post I mentioned Hannah's teething woes. In all, I think she has gained five teeth in the past week. Three of them are molars. Hannah is back to her normal fun self and her new favorite thing to say is, "Na-na-na-na-na-na." (which means "no, no, no, no...") Oh dear. When she is playing with Charlotte and Charlotte has something Hannah wants she will say her "na-na-na-na" speach and grab the toy away. Now, Hannah has not learned this from me! When I want something Hannah has I ask, "Hannah, can mommy have this toy/book/remote please." Usually she is willing and will pass it right along. Lately, she has decided that when I ask for something she doesn't want to give up she should run in the other direction saying, "na-na-na-na-na!!" How do we stop this?
On my pregnancy, I go back to the doctor this coming Monday. I will have a routine visit and also my glucose test. I am not looking forward to drinking the sweet syrup and getting sick to my stomach... "Little brother" has been moving around tons and is getting cramped I am sure. As you can see on our name poll that it all seems to be split down the middle. Are you all doing this on purpose? Josh said maybe this is a sign that we should pick a completely different name... hmmm..
Josh has finished his last final test today!! We are so excited we are almost giddy. Can it be? Finished with a degree? We are excited to have a relaxing day tomorrow that doesn't include, "so when do you have to start working on homework?"
