The last week or so has been pretty crazy for the Fedells. We have our friend Crystal Roehl in town for 10 days. She is leaving to go live in Spain for 2 years as a missionary associate with International Media Ministries soon, and this is the last chance we will see her. She fly in on Tuesday night, in between our OB appointment, pediatrician interview and birthing class. Poor girl. She has been left alone for 5 days!
On Tuesday the 20th, i got a phone call at 5:11am from my little brother. He had found my Aunt Susan unresponsive in our living room. Some of you know about my Aunt Susan. She bravely fought a horrendous throat cancer that eventually took her life. Before she died, she had overcome tongue cancer, lost all her hair, most of the skin on her neck, the ability to talk and eat (She had a feeding tube) and yet she was still strong. She handled it better than anyone i know. I don't know if i could go what she went through with her positive attitude. She lived with my parents the last 6 months or so and they were her constant care givers. Ryan and i got special permission from my OB to fly and we went home to be with my family and to help with the funeral. Thankfully, Crystal has a friend who lives in Lynchburg, VA and she was able to drive there and spend those 5 days with her friend.
Yesterday we went to the Virginia Aquarium and watched a 3-d movie WHILE we drank ICEEs... how long has it been since i have had an icee? I have no idea, but man, that thing tasted good.
We were able to get to the beach for a bit and took a few pictures. Here they are!

Washington D.C

Last weekend Ryan and I went to Washington D.C. We went with my boss Rhonda and Donna and we hosted 3 young people from CBN Cambodia. They had never been out of Cambodia before, so we decided to show them as much of the U.S as possible. Ryan had never been to D.C before, and since all our expenses were paid, we jumped at the opportunity. It was SOO nice to be in a real city again. That was one of the best parts, to be in a nice clean city and not a beachy strip mall town. The not fun part was the pain in my hips and feet after waddling around for 15 hours. It is a great idea to visit D.C, maybe not such a good idea to walk D.C 32 weeks pregnant. I really am done traveling now....i think. Here are a few of the classic D.C pictures.

On the National Mall looking the the Lincoln Memorial.

The Lincoln Memorial.

Overlooking the Potomac with the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial.

Ryan was hanging out with George Mason. They are buddies.

The capital building at night.

The White House. No one was home that day. Jenna was getting married in TX.

The Sweetest Things...

I was blessed to have two good friends that were 10 and 12 weeks ahead of me in my pregnancy. I was able to ask them all sorts of questions. Well, now i am the only one with a large pregnant belly and there are two new BEAUTIFUL baby girls. Jack is going to be one happy ladies man!

Meet Grace Brennan... She had a rough little start on life, but is a gorgeous and content little lady.

Meet Sophia Quincy. I was able to meet Sophia a few hours after she came into the world. She was checking out Ryan, making sure he was going to be a good dad. She also has the cutest cheeks ever!

So now we wait for the next 8 weeks to see what our little man will look like...
Gracie and Sophia are ready to play!
