Houston's "new" dresser

Well I am in full nursery decorating mode. I feel like my nesting has already begun and I have to get a thousand things done by tomorrow, even though I still have 5 months till Houston arrives. Well I have been looking on craigslist for a nice barely used white dresser to match Landon's baby furniture. After looking for a few months, I finally found one I really liked and was in excellent condition. The people I bought it from were super nice and glad to see it go to a good home.

Our guest room aka Houston's nursery
 Right now his room is just a storage room of Landon's baby furniture and our college diplomas ha ha

 Notice that someone HAD to be in the picture
 Ready to be a big brother
Since Jason is off for a 3 day weekend we are going to start painting the trim and walls. I cant wait to see it all come together.

You will be missed

Well I am back from Chattanooga. My mom and I attended my sweet friend Brooke, who passed away last week visitation and funeral today. I try to think of someones passing along with their funeral as a celebration of their life. You see people you have not seen in years, you see pictures of us as children, you visit with the people that is like a second family to you and talk about all the great memories you had with that person. That is a celebration in itself. Brooke was loved my many and missed by all. She may be gone physically, but not spiritly and she lives on in our hearts and our memories.

Prayer Request

I have a special prayer request. I'm finding it hard to believe that I am even having to write about this request. I had a childhood friend, Brooke, suddenly pass away while on a college school trip to Rome and Greece. She passed in Greece 3 days before she was to return home. She was my first friend at the young age of 5 years old. I will never forget that day 25 years ago, when she walked to the home my parents were building at the time and introduced herself. She was my new neighbor and a life long friend. After being neighbors for 10 years we lost contact when my parents and I moved to a different city. A few years ago through the power of the Internet and FB we found each other again and started to catch up with each others lives. Two years ago her and her family came through Nashville, after not seeing each other for 12 years and had lunch together.

April 2009

When I heard the news I immediately called Brooke's mom to see if what I was reading was true. She just posted on FB about how excited she was to leave for Rome and Greece. When her mom answered I just started to cry uncontrollably. I was just in shock and disbelief that this happened to someone I know and all the way in another country. Brooke's mom was on a plane to Greece in less than 24 hours. I know she arrived to Greece safely, but that's all the info I have at the time.

I have attached a link to Brooke's obituary
Brooke's Obituary
 As soon as they make funeral arrangements I will be traveling to Chattanooga to attend something I never thought possible.

Please keep Brooke's family and friend in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. And for her mother who traveled to Greece to bring her daughter home.

16 weeks

 Today we are 16 weeks and counting with baby boy #2. I have started feeling him move, little kicks and some shifting in the last few days. I didn't feel Landon way into week 18 or 19. I have been told you feel the baby quicker the 2nd time around. I am wearing all maternity bottoms and a mixture of maternity and regular tops. We have our next ultrasound on Thursday and cant wait to see our little guy.

Since we found out we were having a boy I have been searching the internet for baby bedding. I just didn't find much that I liked that was not way over $300 for just a bumper, crib skirt and blanket. The ones I did like I thought I could have that made way cheaper and more specific to my liking. So my good friend and great seamstress is going to make all my bedding and curtains for little mans room. We went out this weekend to look at fabric and this is what we came up with..
The colors are going to be brown, green, blue and white. The small polka dots is going to be a crib sheet, and the large dots and strips are going to be a mixture in the bedding, lamp shade and curtains. We have so many cute ideas and I cant wait to see what she comes up with.

Come back on Thursday to see ultrasound pictures and the announcement of our little guys name.

I am watching my friends son a few days a week while school is out for the summer. This was our 1st week together. Landon and Brady get along very well, but it is challenging at times with a 3 and 4 year old. I guess it's just practice for me when baby boy #2 comes in December.

LOVE these sweet boys!

Canvas of L

Look what was on my front porch this afternoon

Baby #2 is a.....

Baby #2 is a BOY!!
We are having another boy and could not be more excited that Landon is going to have a little brother

 Arm and hand waving at his big brother
 15 weeks pregnant with another BOY!
We have a few names picked out that we like, but I'm not monogramming just yet. ;o)

Starting my 2nd trimester I am feeling very well. I am glad L and I are on summer break, we really look forward to our daily naps. haha ;) I could not tell you how much I have gained with this 2nd pregnancy. I am still continuing to workout on a daily basis which helps with my energy a lot. The 3 B's (boobs, butt and belly) are noticeably getting bigger every week.

Landon knows that there is a baby in mommy's belly. He loves to kiss the baby and give him hugs. He also tries to give his baby brother his night night's (his blankets) and his boo (paci) and stuffs them under my shirt. SO CUTE!! If you ask L if he wants a baby brother or sister he still says sister. Sorry Landon not this time around.

Our next doctor appointment is next week!

Just a little TV time

While I was cooking dinner last night I went in to check on Landon and I found him watching Elmo like this

I am going tonight for an ultrasound with my mom just to see our little one. We actually found out the sex at the doctors office 2 wks ago at 12 weeks. Since I am high risk I get ultrasounds every few weeks at the doctors office and a few with my mom during those weeks. Most of our friends know what we are having, but I did not post on here just in case, but from what I saw and previous experience it looked like what she saw. HAHA!! We should be able to tell for sure tonight. We found out Landon was a boy at 15 wks with my mom scanning me. I am 14 wks 4 days today so we should get a clear shot as long as baby corporates. I will post pics and what were having over the weekend. So check back soon!

Happy 30th Birthday Jason

While we were in Florida Jason turned 30 years old. We celebrated by cooking out ribs and all the fixings. For dessert we had red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, Jason's favorite. Here a few pictures from this birthday.


Happy 30th birhday Jason!!
Landon and I love you very much!
