Here we go again…!

So I mentioned it in my last post, but it is true… I am pregnant again!  I really don't know how you are able to forget just how terrible the first trimester is every time, but somehow we decided to do this again!  And yet again, it took quite a while for me to start feeling better.  I am now 18 weeks pregnant and due April 29, 2014.  We could not be more excited and are really anxious to see just who will be joining this family!  Of course Caroline says it's for sure a girl and Cooper is determined that it is a boy. When asked which one I would prefer, I can honestly say that I have no preference whatsoever!  Each one has been so much fun and each one has had their challenges.  And with this one, I'm sure he or she will be completely different either way.  We have entertained the idea of not finding out the gender and have so far gone back and forth on the idea.  My sonogram is scheduled in 3 weeks, so I guess we have until then to decide.  Honestly this pregnancy has just gone so quickly that I am not in that big of a hurry to find out.  I'm just happy to say that so far this peanut is growing normally and healthy!

These two have been working hard learning all of their new duties!


And here we are...

almost 6 months later!!  Ahhhhhh!!!  I can't tell you how many excuses I have for not updating this thing.  I have loved the fact that I have both of my children's lives documents on this blog and it is something I can give them when they are older, hopefully one they will appreciate!  We have been so busy around here - moving into a new house, my computer being frozen and full of many pictures {I had to sort through 40,000 pictures!!  Only 3,000 left...!}, I started teaching preschool in the fall {yep, me a teacher!}, a big trip to Disneyworld and last but definitely not least,  I'm PREGNANT!  {Yep, baby #3 is on its way!}  But truthfully, the one thing that has gotten me to update this blog is that I am so extremely tired of seeing Charlie's house pop up every time I go to look at my blog roll!   We moved into our beautiful house on August 9th and have absolutely LOVED every single second that we have been here.  Building a house from the design phase to the finish is amazing and has given us just about every single thing we wanted!  It was a LOT of work, but definitely proved to be worth every second!!
 One day I'll get around to sharing all of the details as to how we went about planning and picking everything, but for now, these pictures will have to do.  We have spent quite a bit of time in our backyard playing, enjoying our new neighborhood full of kids and just loving being a family of 4 again in our own special space.  Now with the weather changing, all of our big trees are full of yellow, red and orange leaves!  It is just BEAUTIFUL!!  I can not tell you how blessed we really feel!  We did it!!
