Some interesting news....






I have been debating on whether to post this or wait until I go to the doctor to make it official, but there really is no reason to wait. I have an announcement....drum roll please. I am pregnant! I just found out last week and we are very excited and hoping this time will be a much easier pregnancy. We will have to wait and see but keep your fingers crossed for me.


We are hoping that Hayden becoming a big brother will tame him a little bit. He loves his little cousin Calvin and we are hoping that he will love being a brother. I think he will be a fantastic big brother. He is so loving and sweet.


I am pretty proud of the way that I told Nick. I found out while he was at work and wanted to surprise him so I came up with a unique way to tell him. I made Hayden a shirt that said "Big Brother...girl or boy?" (It is the shirt in the picture but Hayden wouldn't stay still for me so you can't really read it.) and dressed him in it so that when he came home from work he would see it and it would be better than me saying....so guess what? Anyway, when he came home Hayden ran to him as usual and gave him a hug so Nick couldn't see his shirt it took a couple of minutes but eventually he saw the writing and asked.."Is there something you are trying to tell me? Something I should know?" Needless to say he was very happy. We all are.

A day at the park





I decided since it was so warm I needed to get Hayden outside and called my sister in law Bonna to see if she wanted to take Garren out. We decided to go together and they had so much fun....I think they both have some pro basketball aspirations...They loved playing outside. And mommy loved it too because Hayden got to expell some energy. We put them on they swings which they enjoyed and it was so nice to be out and in the sun.

My little Chipmunk




Hayden loves to eat but he is VERY messy and takes huge bites and stores the food until he has sucked all of the juice out (Note the mouth stuffed with grapes). No matter how hard I try I can't get him to use a spoon or fork. I always give him one and he ends up throwing it on the floor and using his hands.....as you can see.

Goin' for a walk



Yesterday was such a beautiful day that after dinner Nick and I walked to the Potomac river. It is right by our house and Hayden loves to look at the water. We had a lovely time and it was hard to get Hayden back home because all he wanted to do was throw rocks into the water and pulled a fit when we had to continue onward! We love that it has gotten warm enough to take walks again! We tried to get Hayden to smile for the pics, but he was to busy looking at the water...

Spring is in the air!

This morning I woke up to a bright, warm, sunny day! It was so beautiful and makes me so thankful for all of the beautiful things in this world. Now I realize that mostly everyone is looking forward to Spring, but it is a little bittersweet for me, because that means no more snow days off for Nick! They were so much fun! I felt like a child again...waking up hoping that it snowed so badly that Nick couldn't go to work. Being a teacher definitely has its advantages!! But I think I am ready for the warmer weather and pretty flowers.....and barbeques!
