It's been awhile...

Yep, it's been awhile. Here's an update on the latest from our family:

Natalie is getting so big! Well, not literally, she's still a very small 17 month-old, but she is growing up! We have basically gotten rid of the pacifier, except at naptime and bedtime. I am hoping now she will decide to talk a little more. She is very smart and knows exactly what we are saying, but just doesn't want to get the words out yet! My mom says I was the same way. And then one day I just decided to start talking, and I had this huge vocabulary. I can't wait! We are still in the process of transitioning her to a toddler bed and will hopefully really get this accomplished in the next few weeks.

Tucker is due to arrive 7 weeks from today! If I can make it that long! I just have a feeling I won't....we will see! I have my 32 week appointment this afternoon. We bought all of his bedding and room stuff while we were in Dallas a couple of weekends ago. We are painting his room in a couple of weekends and last night I sorted through boxes and boxes of clothes from people who have little boys. I plan on washing all that stuff and getting it put away in the next couple of weeks also. Our goal is to be totally ready by Thanksgiving.

I can't believe it's already time for the holidays....the thought of shopping completely overwhelms me at this point in my life. I think I am doing it all online this year.

4th of July at the Camp!

This picture is a little old (4th of July!), but I found it on Derek's mom's facebook page and thought it was definitely cute enough to post on the blog! This was taken at the camp on Toledo Bend -- we will be there Labor Day Weekend too, so I know Natalie will be excited to swim and ride in the boat!

A New Addition!

Hi Everyone! I am attempting to actually create a blog that I will keep up with this time! As most of you know, we have baby#2 on the way, Tucker James! He is scheduled to make his appearance between Christmas and New Years. We are all very excited, even though he was a big surprise! Natalie is 14 months old and learning new things every day. She is the greatest baby (well, toddler I guess now), which makes me think Tucker may give us a run for our money! Derek is now teaching PE at Alma Redwine Elementary School and he really likes it. He is starting to take some classes at LC to get his certification in Adaptive PE and should be all finished up with those by the end of next summer. I am still working for Dr. Granger at Rapides and loving every minute of it! Ultrasound pictures of Tucker and recent pictures of Natalie to come soon!
