Spring is in the air!!!

A couple of weeks ago it was so beautiful after work so Addie and I played outside (Jeremy was working) and I played with my camera some. Where did this weather go??? Getting outside in the fresh air and warm sunshine does every body good!

What a goose!

I LOVE this photo!

Silly girl!

And GO BUTLER! Final Four Back-to-Back! This team and Brad Stevens are incredible!

Belly "bump"

Here's a picture from about a week and a half ago. I'm about 21 weeks here. Trying to wrap my head around that we are more than halfway through. We're just now starting to work on Addie's room. She is still sleeping in her crib. She has never pushed us on getting out of it and sleeps well so we haven't rushed her. The guest room will become her room and we'll keep her current room just about the same for the new of the benefits of having another girl! We will replace carpet, paint, Jeremy will do a new closet and decorate her room. She's super excited!

Oh, and totally random, I forgot to mention that at Addison's 3-year check-up she weighed 28 pounds and was exactly 3 feet tall. She is such a skinny thing with no behind! I can hardly get pants to stay up on her. She definitely takes after her dad. Ha!

More people are rubbing the belly these days. :)

Layton is two!

It was Layton's 2nd birthday at the beginning of March. They had a birthday party for him at Pump it Up! Addie was in heaven. She was such a big girl floating around from bouncy thing to bouncy thing and wanted nothing to do with her parents. It was a great time with family celebrating Layton!

Sleepy Abigail on Mamaw...

This picture is blurry, but you can see how much fun she was having with her family. Here she is with Aunt Cristina and Uncle Justin.

I think she liked the chocolate cake. :) Silly girl!

Yes, we got Layton dress up shoes and necklaces! That is what he likes to play with most at our house, plus it was payback for the princess vanity she got for her birthday. :)

Abigail celebrating! She is too cute and such a peanut!

Here SHE is...

I think everyone who reads this blog already knows about the results of the ultrasound. It was wonderful to hear that we were having a healthy baby GIRL! Admittedly I was probably more surprised than Jeremy in the ultrasound room and had a harder time processing the news that we will have two girls in our house...two teenage girls! For some reason all I could think about was two teenagers even though that is sooo far away. Addie LOVES to get in the shop/garage and work with Jeremy so he doesn't feel like he has to have a boy since Addie is beginning to enjoy some of things Jeremy enjoys. Plus, Addie is a daddy's girl on most days and she has won his heart. He may be a pushover by the time the second girl comes into our lives. :) I was happy to hear that I will be able to use all of the girl clothes again I have been storing. Addie wanted a baby sister and was very excited to learn that she was indeed having a baby sister. I think every girl wants/has wanted a sister if they don't have one. I'm excited to see them grow up together.

Ultrasounds are such blessings! They are so fascinating! It was comforting to get a healthy report since so many medical conditions can be discovered from these. It was a huge sigh of relief for me and now it is all beginning to sink in that we are having another baby. My placenta is in the front again (just like Addison) so I don't feel as much movement or as strong of movement as other women would at this time (the doctor said it's like she is kicking a mattress), but I have definitely felt her kick. They are starting to get stronger. Last time I never felt any of the initial flutters (due to the placenta and it being the first time), but I have felt a little of those this time.

Now onto picking a a name...

Enjoy the pictures of our littlest princess!

This was too cute on the screen. I think she is telling her big sister that she is #1. Ha!

Love the profile shot!

It's a girl!

Three-year-old princess

Wow, it's been quite some time since I have posted anything. Sorry! I work every weekend for our auditions in March so it's been hard to just keep up on normal things during this busy month. I am also trying to pay attention to my body and rest when I should instead of pushing through since I have very long days on my feet on the weekends and don't want to get swollen or wear myself out.

We can't believe our little girl is three!!! Some days I just look at her and wonder where the time went. Although she is soooo strong-willed, stubborn and independent, she is soooo loving, caring, smart and sweet! It's hard to imagine our lives before she was born because she brings us so much joy.

On her actual birthday we went to Addie's daycare to celebrate. We sang to her, ate cupcakes and hung out for a bit with the cute kids. We then did fun things as a family of three. We took her to Build-A-Bear, although that didn't go over as well as we thought (the stuffing machine was too loud and I think she had too much "celebrating" that day), and then we went out to eat. We then came home and Addie opened "Beauty and the Beast" DVD from us. She loves princess stuff...ugh...and we like to keep things simple since Lord knows she has enough stuff. We watched the DVD altogether that evening. Funny how many words I still remember. :) It was a great day!

All the kiddos singing "Happy Birthday!"

How cute are they?

I think she liked her cupcake! :) She can be a picky eater sometimes, but she sure does love her sweets!

One of her BFFs...Emma!

At Build-A-Bear giving her monkey a bath...

On Saturday our families came over to celebrate. Addie LOVED having her family all in one place. Of course she was spoiled rotten. It was awesome that David, Carrie and the boys could come to her party since they have only lived here since the fall. Apparently the whole month of February Dylan kept asking when it was going to be the end of the month so he could go to her party.

She hates the attention! HA!

Chocolate cake on a Disney princess plate...what more could a girl ask for?

Abigail flirting with Alex and Tiffany

Unwrapping a "Fancy Nancy" book. Leigh got her one of these for Christmas and she really likes it. She specifically asked my mom for one so that's what she got.

A "Tangled" doll from Honey and Papaw Randy

A pink Princess convertible from Papaw John and Mamaw... Gee, thanks! :)

And a Cinderella vanity from Anthony and Jenny. Once again, gee thanks! :) Here's the before...

He's such a great dad!

We're in TROUBLE!

We love you Addison Grace! You are three!
