Is by far the most amazing woman.

The most gentle hands.

The kindest heart.

The most heartwarming smile.

A hug that cures all.

A positive outlook on life.


Great sense of humor.

Made one hell of batch of amish butter cookies.

An animal lover.

A green thumb.

A caretaker.

A follower of Christ.

A daughter.

A sister.

A wife.

A mother.

A grandmother.

An aunt.

A friend.

She's the one. The "Only." Annie.

A one time occurrence

Haley, Jenn and myself (my sis and sis in law) are all three pregnant!!! We are all due within 10 weeks of one another. This is the only time this will probably ever happen!!! (I think Jenn and I are done having kids after these?!?!)

Anyway, it has been so fun being pregnant with these 2 girls! Our kids have an absolute blast together and get along SO well. After these 3 babies are born, my parents will have 7 grandkids all ages 3 and under! WOW! We've been busy ;)

Thanks to my mom, she snapped a few pictures of us girls the other night.

Won't be long and it will just be Haley and myself....Baby Maleigh is coming SOON!!! Can't wait for all of these new babies!

27 weeks!

HELLO 3rd Trimester!!!

Can you believe it!?! This baby could be here in 13 weeks or LESS!! (I'm guessing less--my other 2 came 2+ weeks early!)

Some interesting tidbits:

--I have gained about 20 lbs. (oopsie)

--I feel like this baby is hanging out LOW in my pelvis.

--Baby is super active all day long and sleeps when I sleep.

--Mia knows she has a baby brother in my belly, told us a couple of weeks ago his name was, "Justin Bieber."

--I have no major complaints! I am probably the pregnant woman everyone hates.

--Still working out 4-5 days a week doing Shelly's bootcamp class.

--The kids at work are actually realizing (as of today) that I'm really having another baby!

--This baby still has no name! We are having a slight disagreement :)

--I think it's so awesome to be pregnant with Haley and Jenn :)

Baby Hall #3 at 27 weeks

Here was the 27 week belly with Miss Mia Can't wait for this next bundle of joy to arrive. Our lives will be crazy busy, but
I wouldn't have it any other way :)

Went to Chicago this weekend for Sara's bachelorette party and bridal shower! We aren't able to get together very often, but when we do, we always have a great time!

Can't wait to head to D.C. in May for the big wedding!!!

Mia's 1st

1st time holding a REAL baby, "baby camera". (Camryn Lowry) :)

She was very gentle, very interested. Not too terribly jealous! Checking with mommy to make sure things were ok.
Admiring this precious little life.
It melted my heart to see how awesome she did with a tiny baby.

Also calmed my fears a bit, too. :)

She's going to be the best big sister!

And I can't wait!
