Ice day!

Today was an Ice Day for us and while I was happy to have the day off I was upset because I only have so many days before the reading TAKS test and my kids need to be at school! Once I got over that this morning ,at 5:15am when both Ryan and I got phone calls from school, I was planning on being very productive.

We got all of the clothes from our family and friends that were pass downs and all of the new stuff that we have bought for him so far put away!!!! We went by size while hanging things up in the closet and I put all the sleepers away in a drawer. The only thing is every sleeper we have been given from others is long sleeves. Is this normal? Should I be getting him some with short sleeves? Then I got all his socks organized and put in a tub that I will eventually put in a basket when I get them and put them in one of his drawers. I will take pictures tonight of his room so far and post them for you guys tomorrow! Let me know what you think!!!!!

Off to cook dinner! ham and cheese roll yummy! Have a great night!

Change of website address: PLEASE READ!

I changed the website of our blog and now I realize that if you have us linked to your website you have to change on yours too!! I am so sorry!!! I did not know that would happen. Please change your website link for us. :) I promise not to do that again!!!!

This weekend!

This weekend Ryan and I were the parents of 3! We babysat for my Aunt Connie who lives in Southlake while she and her husband went out for the weekend for their anniversary. This is the 3rd year in a row we have done this for them and let me tell you each year it gets a little easier!!!! Her kids are Allie who is in 3rd grade and Twins Katie and Max who are about to be 4. This year I think was my favorite. Maybe because we are so excited to see Carter soon or maybe because this was the first year Kaite did not wake up in the middle of the night. Either way both of us had a great time!!!! Ryan and I would both like to have 3 kids (spaced somewhat out of course) and by the time we went to bed last night we actually thought ok we can do this! It was so great seeing how my wonderful husband interacted with the twins. They loved him and would both sit in his lap and watch him play their DS Mario brothers ( which we both loved from back in the day!) and yell for him when he did good and say that's ok you try again when he would mess up! Yes I can say he is going to be a great dad!!!!!

On another note.......
I have become aware that I need to use this blog to document the rest of my pregnancy and to later use it like my friend Jill as a document of Carter's life! This way people I love who do not get to see or talk to me everyday can (if they want) keep up with what is going on in our little family. So this is my new plan. I hope that you all will read and comment on what I write. I love advice and yours is greatly appreciated :)

I have been reading on Kelly's Korner and praying for her little girl Harper! I can not even begin to imagine what she and her husband are going through. Please go to her site and pray for her baby and her family. It has been so emotional for me since she had a great pregnancy and then all of the sudden when Harper was born things went wrong. God creates miracles everyday lets pray for one for Harper.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Where have you been?!

I know I know! I have been gone for a while! The past two weeks have been very hectic for us. To make it short. They thought there was something wrong with either me or the baby and they had us coming to the doctor A LOT! Through lots of prayer and only by God's grace when we went to have an ultra sound yesterday she said Carter looked great and I was doing just fine. Yes he would prob. be coming early because he is going to run out of room because my torso is to short and my pelvis faces inward BUT he is great right now! He weighed in at 2 pounds 2 ounces! It was such a blessing to see him again since I feel like it has been forever since we have gotten to see him move. He was so active and you could even see him moving on my skin WEIRD!

So that is what we have been up to. What about you? Are you having a great week!?
