who needs to buy art?

Who needs to buy abstract art when you got a 2 year old artist that will work for free and loves every minute of it? AND she can admire her work every time she comes into our bedroom and sees all her art work framed on our wall?

Someone is getting excited...

We went to the hospital yesterday to check me out.... there were some weird things going on with my um... pee. HAHAH so I was told to go in and get my fluids checked out. everything turned out fine and the baby looks great. in fact it's growing a little quicker. it's now 5 days ahead of schedule. so technically I'm 16 weeks today according to measurements. we got to peak and have an ultrasound and Sophie was just SO excited to get to see the baby. she was sitting with her dad the whole time going "aaaw... cute baby. look daddy! it's the baby in mommy's tummy!" it was adorable. the ultrasound tech decided to print out a pic of the ultrasound and for some reason decided on this one... you can totally see the hands and arms but i don't know if that's the head or the tummy of the baby.LOL... in 3 weeks we find out the gender so we'll get better ones then. Sophie has been turning into such a little mommy and takes care of her baby and wants the baby to "come out". she's always telling me "when baby comes out, I hold it?" LOL she is super excited. we'll see when the jealousy kicks in. I can GUARANTEE you it will. BAD. LOL

No more room in the INN

the birdies are getting HUGE and are outgrowing the nest... I just hope they all fit and stay in there long enough to be able to fly away!

no. not ours... (but I got your attention didn't I? AND i'm only pregnant with one) a couple weeks ago my friend noticed a nest on the top of our front door wreath. we've been watching them and waiting for them to hatch... and today... we noticed they did. just recently we think. there are 3 of them. can't wait to watch them grow! so if you come to our house, please be gentle with our front door :)
