We had a busy Monday and Tuesday!!!!
Monday we went and had an overnight with Maria!

Tuesday Mia and Fletcher exchanged gifts and played :)
Mia hammed it up for me.
Then cleaned out her nose.
.....and here is the belly at 13 weeks. Heading into the 2nd trimester!! WOW!
haven't really "popped," but I do feel a little bit thicker around the waist!!!!

18 month pics-a week early.

A troublesome photoshoot, these were the best 2 shots ;)

(Aunt Kate, is Mia a "mini-maddi" in the first picture??)

Motherly instinct....

Mia got a baby (with accessories) from her mimi and papaw for Christmas. It giggles and cries, too. When she plays with her baby, it is so stinkin' cute to watch her take care of her.
I think she's going to be a GREAT big sister :)

We may have to have a talk about how Mia won't be able to drink out of the little one's bottle....
and that the new baby will not be taking naps in the crisper in the fridge ;)
Ohhh my sweet, sassy Mia...mommy loves you!

In a year....

She has changed SO much.

And I have loved every second.
So blessed to have this sweet one in my life. She'll never know how much she has helped mend my heart.

'tis the season

It was hard enough trying to get these 3 to pose. Can you imagine next year when there are SIX!?!?!?! :)

I may be a little biased.....but dang, do we make some cute kids ;)

Baby Hall #3 has a due date of July 7, 2011. Sound Familiar? It should! It's MIA'S BIRTHDAY!! How did we plan that? Very carefully ;) Haha, as it turns out, we didn't plan it. It's just fate!
Based on my last 2 pregnancies/deliveries--I'm guessing this baby will come in late June. I tend to go a couple of weeks early, and still have healthy sized babes :)
I'm 11 weeks, have gained 2 lbs, and can still button all of my pants :)
So far, so good!
I'll post a belly pic when it decided to pop...give it a couple more weeks!
Thanks for all of the congrats!

My Birthday

I had a wonderful birthday today! :)
Got flowers at work.

Received every type of reeses made from a great group of gals I work with! YUM
Got a really beautiful gift from Jeremy--I may have him go back and get another one because I love it so much!

Playing with my favorite baby girl tonight.
This must be her "Happy Birthday Mommy" face...

Thank you everyone for making my day special!

I'm ready!

For the craft sale in November!!!
3 other girls and myself are renting a booth at the craft fair! I'm selling infant-3 month headbands and hats!!! Of course, the headbands can fit larger, but the hats probably won't be big enough past 3-5 months, I would guess.

I hope we are all successful!! The profit from my portion is going to go into the vasa previa account for a donation in March for Connor's bday.

I would say HAPPY 30th Birthday to my beautiful sister, but she has the flu on her stinking birhtday :(
So we will just say ______ Birthday HALEY!

We will have to celebrate on Saturday when she's feeling better :)

Day of Remembrance

I remember Connor's birth day every single day. Today my heart felt extra full of love for my sweet baby boy, knowing that there is a special day to remind everyone to remember all of the babies that are taken away from their mothers and fathers all too soon.
I miss him more than words can explain.
I hope Mia knows how special she is......having this little guy watching over her every second of every single day.

...sometimes I wonder if she already knows......

It's small, but it's a cute little ponytail!!
My almost 15 month old going on 5.
I see a bit of her mama here :)
She sang a song all the way home from the Y tonight. The words? All "mama" at various pitches, it was way too cute....and I SO wish I would have had my video camera with me!
