Documenting the lives of a brown eyed girl with curls, and her baby brother's world.

2nd b-day approaching!

It's been way too long since my last blog entry! We've been sick lately, but now things are looking up since school is almost over! :) I'm now 6 months pregnant and starting to feel little man kick quite a bit. Macey sometimes calls him "Bubby, baby, Tanner, or etc." When I ask who's in there, she'll say Baby, but usually gets his name wrong. She'll say Colty's last name :) No, Macey, Tanner! We found an armoire for his room, got him a couple of new outfits, and I ordered his bedding. NESTING! HELLO!

Tanner is due in September, so with prayer and many budget revisions, I've decided to work part-time next year. I will be able to spend most of my days with my children (plural!! crazy!)and make doctor's appointments, etc. in the afternoons and not get docked each time or feel guilty about leaving for my own children. I plan on taking 6 weeks off, instead of 8 for maternity leave. Next Fall brings many new and exciting changes.

Now, I'm busy getting Macey's party stuff in order before Saturday. Sweet girl says, "Birthday Party?" and I call out the roster of friends who were invited! I can't wait! It's going to be so much fun! We got a bounce house and snow cone machine (it's going to be in the 90's on Saturday!) We're having a "sweet shoppe" with some assortment of candies for the kids to take home. Pics coming soon :)

Here are some pics that we took awhile back for her invites.

I'm in "nesting" mode BIG time. I just turned 20 weeks ( 5 months) and I got the itch to get Macey's playroom organized and furnished, and now my living room is clutter free! My thoughts are now set on finding her toddler bed, and Tanner's nursery.

For her play room, I had to get the following:
Melissa & Doug Easel (birthday gift)
Black Bulletin Board (need to paint "ocean blue.")
Table and chairs (I painted and sanded for a shabby chic look.)
*Waiting on my Dr. Seuss slogan for the wall!

Macey fell off our swing and scraped her face :(
