Baby Guesses

A little information to get you started:
Carnahan Baby #2 is Due October 19th by the doctors chart, but October 20th by my own tracking. At 20 weeks, the baby measured a week ahead of schedule (or bigger than normal), but most of the babies growing happens in the last few months. I am having the exact same pregnancy & carrying nearly exactly the same as I did with Isabelle just a bit lower (I claim that my body has just relaxed after having one child). Oh, but Andrew thinks my face isn't as "plump" as it was last time, but I keep telling him we have a few weeks to go. ;o)

Isabelle was due November 1st and was delivered the 4th after my water broke. Isabelle weighed 7 pounds 12 oz and was 20 or 20 1/2 inches long.

I was due October 31st and I was delivered November 5th (2nd child). I weighed 8 pounds 11 oz and I have no idea how long I was.

Not sure what else I can tell you...I'd like to deliver a bit early, but that probably means I'll have to be induced at 41 weeks which I really don't want.

Make your guesses here:

....our first FAMILY VACATION!

Nana Jane & Mummums were in attendance, but Andrew, Isabelle & I got to spend some time doing all the fun tourist adventures together with bonus help to keep Isabelle preoccupied (Thank You Nana Jane). We had a blast enjoying 70 degree weather in August and checking out all that Seattle has to offer. We did all the big things in our few short days, but we are very excited to try the adventure all over again in 2-3 years. Who wouldn't want to? We got to spend time a Pike's Place Market, take a Ferry to Bambridge for lunch, have brunch at the Space Needle, and watch boats come in and out of Lake Washington at the Ballad Locks. Not to mention all the awesome food we over induldged on and the amazing company of my mama, Mummums, Kari, Sean & Jeni. It was so much fun. Here are a few of the photos....
Love, Andrew, Kathryn & Isabelle
PS - I am so thrilled for this to be Isabelle's last lap flight and my last flight before baby #2....

This post is coming a bit late, but better late than never.....
Last month, Isabelle, Andrew & I made a trip to Andrew's home in Hereford. We got to see his whole family, enjoy some new "possible" family members and attend Andrew's cousin Melissa's Wedding. We had a wonderful time enjoying the pool & catching up.
Isabelle LOVED all of the attention and attending her very first wedding! However, I think this may be her last wedding until we feel comfortable with her performances in church. I spent a lot of time in the cry room with some other adults & babies. Andrew was a reader in the wedding and did a wonderful job, of course. ;o) But more importantly, CONGRATULATIONS TO MELISSA & DOUGLAS PAYNE!!!! It was quite fun to be a part of such a special occasion!
Isabelle & I stayed a few extra days to spend some quality time with Nana Janette & Papa Eric. We had a lot of fun! We took tractor rides, saw new animals (FROGS!), swam, swam, swam, ate fresh fruits & veggies and made some fun memories. Isabelle spent time with her second cousins: Jazzlyn, Braeson, Traylon & new baby Britlyn and I got to spend some time with Andrew's wonderful cousin, Jessica! It was a lot of fun to watch the kids together and it was so nice to had a very accomplished mother & friend to visit with (thank you Jessica)!!!
We love you NANA & PAPA!! Thank for such a fun filled trip! We cannot wait until next summer. ;o)
Love, Andrew, Kathryn, Isabelle & Baby #2
