Adam's First Day of School 2009

I can't believe my baby is in Pre-K. I know. I know. It's not Kindergarten yet, but it's still a huge milestone! :)

He had a great day! He told me that they had goldfish, for a snack; they played outside, they have to raise their hands to talk, he sorted colors, and they read "David Goes to School." He is sitting here now, eating lunch and looking exhausted. Here's hoping for a great nap! :)


What did Matty and mommy do with our new found "freedom" ?? Well... We went to the ZOO of course! :)

And boy...did Matty enjoy being an "only child" for a little while! :)

20 Weeks

20 Weeks.

In 20 weeks we finally meet.

And I'll love you from the start.

A little girl...


and lace.

I've waited for so long.

I'll smell your scent,

And kiss your face,

I'll even kiss your toes.

I can't wait to meet you,

Chloe Danielle,

my daughter,

my love,

my girl!

I'll admit...I'm getting excited! I can't wait to see this baby! I can't wait to see if she looks like her brothers, if she has hair, if she looks like me or Andy... I just can't wait! I can't wait! :) EEK!

How do they GROW so fast?

My babies are growing up!

Adam starts Pre-school in 9 days

Matty can speak in full sentences (I really love it when he says "hey, dude!")

Adam is currently playing on HIS computer- doing a game I am sure I couldn't figure out!

Matty is also playing on HIS computer- popping balloons with Pooh Bear

Adam wants to be the big brother. He takes charge quite often.

Matty also likes to take charge.


GRAPE- Grape is 20 weeks baked today! Halfway. 140 days. And tomorrow... tomorrow we find out if we will use our girl name we've had picked out for FOUR years, or the newly picked out boy name.

See under baby Grape over there? ---->

There's a poll. Vote away!

We find out that answer (hopefully!) this THURSDAY at 4:00! :)

Don't worry, I'll tell you what we're having! ;) We can't wait to share the news!

Here I am...19 weeks...and counting! :)

So Much.... So Much....

Do you miss my rambling lists of goodness? I know, I do too. So in old school form, here's a nice list of what's going on in our lives:

1) I am 18 weeks and 5 days, today. Almost 19 weeks. Almost halfway. Almost... but not quite. This pregnancy is the longest pregnancy I've ever experienced.

2) Andy felt the baby move for the first time, last night! It was very exciting. He/she was kicking up a storm! :)

3) My cousin just had their first baby girl (out of 4 kids!). Baylee is beautiful and such a blessing to our family! :)

Here's Adam and Baylee (Sorry about the quality- it's from my aunt's phone!) I think Adam was secretly hoping this was *our* baby, because he knows that this is the hospital where "we got Matty" and where we "will get the new baby."

4) School starts next week for me. Statistics here I come! boo.

5) My daddy was sick and in the hospital, again. I wish they could just figure this all out. He had an infection, a very high fever, and was REALLY sick. He was in the hospital for 4 days without any real fix. I'm just praying someone will figure this all out!

6) Ashley has lived with us all summer and I am not sure what I will do without her, when she goes back to school in a few weeks. sigh. She is great with the kids, and they are going to miss her so much! ;(

Hopefully someday I can get back into posting more! Life is hectic. Summer is hectic! Bring on the slow months of cold and staying inside!! :) I'm ready!
