I just wanted to add a few of the funny things Victoria has been saying lately.
1- After visiting a local farm she said, "Mom, next time we go see the cows I really want to squeeze their tutters!". I could not stop laughing. First that she wanted to milk the cow and second that she said tutters.
2- The same visit we scared some pigs and they barked. She said, "Mom, pigs say oink, oink, not woof, woof. What's wrong with those pigs?"
3- She had a hang nail and with a disgusted look on her face she said, "Mom, look at this crazy tony-tail."

She is a hoot!

Asher Crane Pope

So here is Asher Crane Pope! He came charging out at 8:30 am on Thursday morning at 7 lbs 12 oz, 21 inches in length, and a head covered in almost inexplicably dark hair. Amanda and Asher are both healthy and adjusting well to their new roles in life. We appreciate all the prayers and well-wishing offered on their behalf.

My friends at my office today surprised me with a baby shower! I thought I was going to a meeting and then when I walked in the conference room, it was filled with all of my friends shouting "Surprise!" It was sooo nice of them! I was completely surprised. I have only been in this office a year, but I feel that I have some really great friends here. Anyway, I thought I would post a few of the pictures...

What a cute cake huh!

What a bunch of nerdy accountants huh! Just kidding. They are sooo great.

YOGA and the Crane's...

Can I just say that my "Downward facing Dog" is something the rest of my yoga class finds humor in? And that if my yoga instructor says "heels flat on the floor" one more time specifically to me I might just pick up my mat and cry my way out the door! UGH... Any advice? If I ever do get my heels and hands on the ground at the same time I'll take a picture and post it, but seriously... don't hold your breathe!

Oh the Fat Feet!

So you know how sometimes when you are pregnant, you are never sure just how much bigger you are until you try on a shirt or pants that no longer fit. Well, I've slowly changed my shoe selections due to the mark that my "buckle-around the ankle dress shoes" would leave on my ankle after a day of wear. Mind you I used to buckle them at a tighter bunkle, but the mark was left at the loosest buckle! So now I have been wearing slip on strappy dress shoes. Well, yesterday I looked down and realized that my overly chunky feet had actually broken one of the straps on my last resort shoes! This is just my feet I'm talking about; my chunky ankles are another story! Well, luckilly only three weeks left! Wow, how time has flown.
