So the other night, Terral and I decided to do a little relaxin' and pick up a movie from Redbox. After the movie we were just kind of laying on the couch, not wanting to move. I know you've been there. Anyway, I can't remember how our conversation started, but something Terral said made me start to giggle. My giggle made Terral chuckle a bit, which made me giggle some more, which. . .well, you know how it goes. : ) Everything was hilarious. In between laughs Terral said something about me shaking the baby with my laughter. I put my hand on my belly and tried to picture him in there while I was laughing, and I started laughing even more. And I kept laughing because every time I laughed I felt my belly button poke out.
I just wanted to record an example of how this little boy has already brought joy into our lives. I wanted to document this pregnancy so much better than I have. So just for the record, Little Fox, there have been numerous times when I feel kind of down or stressed about school, and then I feel a certain movement from you and suddenly there is a smile on my face. It's almost magical how those smiles come out of the blue. So thanks, buddy. We love you.

So, I'm thinking my updates are just not going to happen for a while. Instead, as a mini sort of catch-up on some of our summer adventures, I will simply refer you to Terral's Unshoes blog. He wrote about our recent backpacking trip in Ashdown Gorge, hiking in the Barracks, Green River, and a little fun we had on the Virgin. That way you can at leas see some pictures if you happen to be interested. :)
