A Pregnancy Update:
Hmm, I am 32 weeks (or 33, never can keep up with it). Feeling great!! Still due on July 5th but if I know my doctor he Won’t be working on the 4th so doubt she could be a July 4th baby. Em came like 10 days early on her own. LK was induced I think 7 days early. So.. I guess I will know closer to time about when to expect Campbell. 🙂 She is just a delight to carry. She seems huge and puts on a show when she wiggles. I am REALLY ready to meet her but don’t feel like I’m as miserable/anxious to deliver as I was with the first 2.

Campbell does not have a nursery yet. LK is not ready to give up the crib, she is pretty attached to it. She is moving into the bedroom with Em. We’ve trialed it numerous times and LK is NOT having it. They will stay in the bed up to 3 hours but NO sleeping is happening & I end up having to carry LK back to her crib. I keep telling myself I have a few more weeks to transition her. Although the urge to “nest” is coming on and I wish she’d move in w/ Em soon. Keith says don’t worry about it… “Campbell can just sleep in her cradle in our room for a few months. She doesn’t have to have a room right away.” Mercy!! He doesn’t understand. Baby girl HAS to have her own room even if she doesn’t actually sleep in it 🙂

& Are we really done??
Hmm, I REALLY think so. But not certain enough to do anything permanent. 2 is hard!! I can only imagine what 3 will be like. We’ll see 🙂

Dear Blog,

You have been temporarily betrayed for this:

#1 The snowy day, followed by a week of beautiful blue bird skies


#2 My infatuation with the new Brother

#3 This sweet little bundle of joy growing exponentially inside of me. I really can’t believe I am posting this picture. I would have preferred to get all dolled up and then take the pic, but as I took a pic of the bib Em insisted on taking a pic of baby Campbell IN my PJs and so… I swallowed my pride to show you how BIG I am. I am not even sure precisely how far along I am (I hear that is common for the 3rd-although with the others I knew down to the exact date ie. 22 weeks+2 days). I am around 22 weeks (due July 5). When I am done with this post, I’ll probably go look it up b/c I am feeling bad. However, some things may change with each pregnancy but my excitement is not one of them! I saw a friend’s newborn just last week and I wanted to eat her up and truly could not wait to get my hands on my own 🙂

Unrelated, but wanted to give K a little press..
In the current economy, it’s good to know He can STILL “bring
home the bacon fish!”

When we awoke Sunday morning, the girls could not believe their eyes
(neither could I)!


What a beautiful sight that I never expected to see!! Yes, the girls are dressed for church! We braved the “blizzard (ha)” for church. We had to keep nursery and thought no-one would be there… Boy were we wrong!



After church, the girls couldn’t wait to get outside to play. Although, I think we spent more time getting ready to go out than they actually spent outside.

Daddy Daughter Dance



Daddy Daughter Date Night was Valentine’s Night. It’s put on by the city chamber & It’s a big deal here — like buy your tickets in December, initial five places you won’t give them to anyone else, can’t buy them for your neighbor big deal. (*thx to Holly for the intellectual property- you said it better than I could) This was Em’s first year and she was so excited! She and K met a few little friends from “school” at the Cock of the Walk for dinner before the big dance & then they were off!


I had soo much fun helping her get ready. I love the idea of this as well. She asked me if I went to a daddy/daugh dance when I was a little girl. Unfortunately, Big Sylacauga did not host these.



The Motley Crew posing at the restaurant. I heard from the daddy’s that these girls are a handful when they all get together (to put it mildly :O) Aren’t they cute?? At 3 years old that is a lot of sass!

Hi Ho Cherry-O


Good to know my sewing machine will still work after such a long vacation. I have been dying to finish these pants that my mother in law made the smock top to match! Although, preg fatigue has prohibited much sewing at night.
I could just eat these cuties up 🙂
