It's a Girl!

We found out Monday that we are having a little GIRL! I thought for sure that it was a boy so I was really surprised when they told us. I really had to totally change my train of thought but we couldn't be more excited. D said he knew all along that it was a girl.

I'm still feeling really good and really the only symptom that I have been feeling is tiredness. I'm 20 weeks along and I'm growing bigger every day. And I have just started to feel Baby P move around in there. That's an amazing feeling and I can't wait for D to be able to feel it too. After Christmas we have alot to do to get the room ready to go. Only 140 days to go!

Turkey Day 09

Here are some pictures of our Thanksgiving weekend. We went to Kilgore to visit my grandmother and aunts and uncles for Thanksgiving Day. My dad and his 2 brothers always host a touch football game and this year the weather was perfect for it. Here are some pictures from the big game.

Then Friday morning we went down to Baton Rouge to spend the rest of the weekend. The baby got its first Tiger gear from my sister Julie.

And here is cute Kate in her LSU outfit.
Cole and Julie in their purple and gold.
Saturday night we took D to his very first LSU game.

Here is the group before the game. D is wearing a yellow polo shirt and he had on a purple undershirt. My brother Jonathan didn't think that was good enough so he bought him a LSU sweatshirt. That is the sweatshirt hanging over his shoulder in the below picture. He did wear it later in the game though.

Julie and Mikey

Ryan and Dana

And here are some more neice and nephew pictures.

Kate and her Cutesy Cloths outfit.

And me and D

So much to be thankful for!

14 weeks

I'm 14 weeks along (almost 15) in these pictures. I didn't really think I was suppose to start showing until a little further along but I guess all the chocolate milk is catching up with me. The baby is the size of a lemon at this stage. I've loved learning about all the developmental stages each week.

I think this picture is funny - Emily and Ivan wanted that lemon so bad. I would like to think they they were just looking at me in adoration but no, they just wanted the lemon.

Big Announcement...

We got a new little puppy! We picked her up this afternoon from a nearby shelter. They estimated that she's about 3 months old and some kind of retreiver/lab mix. We named her Bella. Here are a few pictures of the new addition.

And poor Ivan and Emily don't know what to do when they aren't the center of attention So here's some pictures of them. Here's Ivan wondering if he's going to like his new little sister.

Emily doesn't look like a happy camper but inside she's excited about her little sister.

Labor Day in Baton Rouge

Spent last weekend with the fam in Louisiana. We stayed for a few days in Baton Rouge and then we went to Dana's family camp after church on Sunday and stayed until Monday. Get ready for some cuteness...

Kate all decked out and ready for the boat. She's a mean recorder player.
Julie and Kate

Cole and Ryan

Kate in her spot. This is where she rode most of the time. When someone would fall skiing or tubing she would get up to make sure they were ok then she would get back in her spot.

Julie, Jonathan and Cole tubing

Julie and Kate tubing. We couldn't tell if she liked it or not. She wasn't crying though so I think she liked it.

Ryan wakeboarding (or water boarding as my dad calls it)

Foggy Labor Day morning
Cole is in kindergarten now so he is too cool for school.
It was a great long weekend. Alot of memories were made.
