Long Time No Blog

Well it's well been a long, long time since I have visited this little blog. I think I need to give it some attention. Give me a few weeks and I think I will get back at it.

Until then let me introduce to you:


This is Colin. He is due in February. I hope he can bake that long. I am thinking he will be here sometime in December or January.

I went for the big u/s today and we are having another little girl. The girls are going to rule the house. Poor Austin. It was real exciting getting to see her. She was moving all over the place. I think that is because I had my morning coffee drink and a bottle of o.j. right before the appointment. The doc said that everything looked great except my blood pressure is still a little high.

Here is how I am doing:
How far along? 20 weeks
Maternity Clothes? Yup...
Stretch marks? Yup...they are getting bigger.
Sleep? Great. But I am having some crazy dreams
Best moment this week? Finding out we are having a girl.
Movement: Tiny little kicks. Mostly in the evening when I am relaxing
Gender? Girl
Labor signs? Nope
What I miss? Beer
What I am looking forward to? Getting the room ready
Milestones? Made it the halfway point

No news is good news

It's been a while since I update this little old blog. I have been a little bit under the weather the last few months. But now I am feeling o.k. and have enough energy to give it another try. I am sure most folks know that we are expecting a new addition early November. We are really excited and Abby is very, very excited that she is going to be a big sister. She ask me everyday if the baby is here.
Even though I haven't been able to keep little old blog up we still have been keeping busy and having lots of fun. Here is just a peak of what we have been up to:
We planted a garden

Abby and I went to the Sparkleberry Fair

Abby turned 4 years old (my little baby is becoming such a big girl )

Abby and I went to cousin Steven's High School Graduation

And can you believe that a helicopter landed in Shawn's yard at Steven's graduation party and Abby went for ride. But if you ask Abby she enjoyed the slip and slide more.

We have also had friends stop through Columbia like Austin's childhood friend Laura and her family to attend her niece's play. We were lucky enough to have a quick lunch with them. (We took some pictures but they are still on Austin's camera). And last weekend , we were able to babysit Abby's boyfriend Graham and baby Sophie while there parents went to a wedding. Abby and Graham had a blast running around and playing while I was just in aw having a three month to hold. I think I was so excited having them here I forgot to picture's. I blame that on my pregnancy brain farts. I did get a few pictures of Sophie but I haven't been able to upload them yet.

Here is how I am doing so far with this pregnancy:

How far along? 18 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Yup....I have been in maternity clothes since around 8 weeks. I can't believe that since with Abby I didn't start showing until 20+ weeks.

Stretch marks? Yup...the lovely stretch marks that I was lucky to get with Abby are starting to grow.

Sleep? Pretty good right now. At the beginning of this pregnancy, not so much. I am really enjoying sleep right now.

Best moment this week? Going to Carter's outlet on Sunday and seeing all the great deals and finding the Fisher Price Nature Swing at the consignment shop which was a great find and great price.

Movement: Little flutters here and there.

Gender? ????- A few folks keeps telling me it's a boy but we will find out real soon, June 23rd.

Labor signs? Nope

What I miss? Feta Cheese

What I am looking forward to? Finding out the gender on June 23rd

Milestones? Making it 18 weeks :)

I will get Austin to take a picture of big fat belly when he gets home this weekend so you can see how fat I getting.

Getting ready for Spring

Last Saturday ( I know I am posting these backwards sorry) the weather here was fabulous. We went to Sesquicentennial State Park which is just a couple miles from where we live. It's a nice park to take the whole family. There is lots you can do there: picnics, walking trails, dog park, playgrounds, paddle boats and canoes. We let Abigail burn off some energy on the playground (of course) and then took her on the paddle boats.

This little guy followed us around. I think he thought we had some food. I felt kinda bad because we didn't.

Here are some of our crafts that we worked on to get the house ready for spring:

Hum, Abigail is concentrating really hard!

Making sure we get the pieces in the right spot

And our final projects. We made flower sun catchers, lady bugs and for St. Patrick's day a four leaf clover.

Sophie Grey Calhoun

Last Sunday we took the day to go and meet the newest member of the Calhoun Family. Her name is Sophie Grey Calhoun.

Isn't she adorable?

Mommy and Sophie

Abigail really enjoyed going up there. Abigail thought the baby was "sweet". But the best part for Abigail was she got to play with Sophie's big brother Graham.

They are too cute...:)

Oops...It was an accident


Remember what Abigail looked like with lots of hair

Here is what happens when Abigail gets hold of scissors:

This is what it looks like after we visited the hair dress:

Adding some accessories

Mommy has been crying a lot.
