Cat's 30th Birthday

I don't normally post our day-to-day events but this I had to share. First, to everyone who has asked what I currently look like, here you go! Being pregnant with a boy is so very different (for me) than being pregnant with a girl. At this point in my pregnancy with Addie I was not small (yes, I am being nice to myself today). This little man seems to just suck everything out of me!

Cat is one of my best friends from college and while we don't see each other as much as we would like we are always quick to pick up where we left off. She and her family have always been amazing to us and we were so excited to share in her family birthday.

The best part of this visit was getting to see our growing bellies side-by-side. Cat and I are due 3 weeks apart and we are so excited that our kids will be so close. We are convinced that they are having a girl and our little boy will be able to show her the ropes!

This is yet another glimpse of God's perfect plan, they like us struggled to get pregnant and it is such awesome timing that we are going through this together. We have shared lots of tears and will now share lots of memories!!!

Addie is getting to the age where she is understanding the different things she attends, this was no exception. When she heard "party" she was ready to go and had no problem posing for the camera.

First Day of Pre-school

Addie started a one day a week preschool program this past week and we are enjoying it! I am loving having a few hours to myself and she is loving the interaction with other kids. She did really well the first day and even better this week. Her teachers say she is catching on quickly to the different activities as well as taking if that would just transition to home as well!

Our Precious Baby Boy!!!

I have continually said that God has a sense of humor and He has yet to fail me. I fully admit that anyone who asked me what I wanted got the "girl" response as I wanted Addie to have a sister. That said, everyone tried to tell me it is a boy and I think I was living in denial. Jonah new from day one.
Before Lisa (the ultrasound tech) even told us I saw the tell tale sign and was suddenly filled with so many emotions. I can't explain it except to say that I am truly excited and nervous all at the same time. We have been so ensconced in everything little girl that this is a completely new adventure.

I find it so fitting that as my Granddaddy left this earth a new little boy has been sent to fill his place. My Granddaddy was one of my favorite people and I can only pray that this little man has his faith, compassion, and sense of humor.
For now we begin the hunt for names, the middle name will be William (that was my grandfather's name) and seems so appropriate for this time in our lives.
