On Wednesday of this week, we found out that we are pregnant with baby #3! It was so exciting to see the positive sign! I raced to Dr. Baiza's office to have it confirmed and sure enough it was positive there too! I told Danny on Thursday night by having him help me make spaghetti for dinner. Earlier in the day I had made a label that said Kelly is PREGO on the spaghetti sauce jar. Upon retrieving the jar of sauce he looked at the odd make-shift label that had been taped on the front. He read it out loud and did a double-take from me to the sauce jar quite a few times. Lots of hugs and laughter soon followed. The kids are very excited to have a baby in the family. Dylan has been rubbing my belly a lot and Brooklynn reminds me often that this is going to be HER baby. (We'll see how she feels when that baby comes home and gets a lot of the attention!) We are so blessed and look forward to December 3rd when we can meet this little miracle!

Big girl

It is hard to believe that my "baby" just turned two! It seems like just yesterday I was on my way to the hospital to have her. We spent two weekends celebrating her birthday and upgraded her status to being a big girl to which she is very excited. She got to move into her big girl bed and has enjoyed the freedom that comes with that. (Mom isn't too sure!) She even gave her animals a run-down on what it means to sleep in a big bed. Watching how fast she has grown up reminds me to enjoy every second that I have with them. It's easy to let the little things slide by and not cherish each moment. I decided when Dylan was little to keep a book for each child and make note of the precious things they say and do. That way if I get busy and forget to cherish those moments I can always look back and remember with a smile!

Here We Go!

After many months of procrastinating I am finally getting around to starting this blog! I have seen family and friends use this as a way to connect with others and I have always wanted to give it a shot. I'm not sure how often I'll be able to add new posts but I hope that you will continue to read and look for updates on our family! Happy reading!
