Here comes the sun(shine!)

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right
This sums up Wade's personality perfectly...Crazy hair B-man. I think this was right after naptime!!
The Mill's
We had my appointment last week for Baby #3 and all looks great! Heart was beating at a strong 160 beats per minute and I am measuring right on target. Due date is set for October 1st, however, since I will be having another c-section, the Dr. will probably schedule it for September 24th!! I guess they want to schedule it earlier so that you do not go into, Sept. 24th it is!! Here is a blurry cell phone pic of the little pea in the pod on the computer screen!

Valentine's Day was Mmmm Mmmmm Good!

This weekend started off with a party at the boys' school for Valentine's Day! Their teacher, Ms. Sara, put so much work into the party...Thank you so much "Ms. Sa-ya"!!

The 1 year old class enjoying their treats!The boys all wore shirts that said, "The ladies love me". Ms. "Sa-ya" purchased them and put their names on the back of all of the shirts! Brody's had a #1 and Wade's had a #2...too cute!Some body was thrilled to see his Dadddddeeeeee....Brody is infatuated with Todd these days. He literally lights up when Todd walks into a room. Although I secretly wish the boys would always remain "Mommy's boys", it is satisfying watching Todd's reaction to being adored. It melts my heart in ways I cannot describe!Brody did not make a peep the entire time they ate and was the very last one to get up from the table. Wade, on the other hand, dumped his plate the minute they sat down and walked around stealing everybody's sippy cups.B-man and crazy Wade enjoying the party:Grammie and Pop's drove over to pick up the boys and keep them for the weekend! Here they are getting a kick out of all of the kiddos....
We decided Saturday afternoon to drive on over to PCB and join Grammie, Pop's and the little fella's....On Sunday morning, the boys helped Pop's make waffles!Don't they actually look kind of like twins here?

The Wonder Horse made its way from Macclenney to the family room of Grammie and Pop's...

Thank you again Grammie and Pop's for a WONDERFUL weekend! We love you!

We took the munchkins to their 18 month check up and shot appointment yesterday! They are both almost 34 inches tall and B-man is weighing in at about 30 pounds and Wade is weighing in at 32 pounds! We have ourselves some VERY healthy babes!!! They took their shots in stride , and after a camo band-aid and a lollipop, all was good in the world. They are developing just if we did not already know this :)

I will be 8 weeks pregnant on Thursday and will have an appointment at 8am that morning. I am not as far along as we initially thought...meaning when we found out I was pregnant, I must have been 3 1/2 to 4 weeks pregnant...VERY early!!!!! I am saying many prayers that the pregnancy continues to thrive and remain viable. I guess it is a common worry among Mothers, especially after you realize what a miracle having a child really is! Here is a little picture from the Internet, showing what our 3rd little miracle might look like at this point...

I can hardly stand it.

I am so in love with these two little monkeys. They are so stinkin' cute, I can hardly stand it. (Nothing like a Momma braggin'...hehehe. I know. Gag me...but I cannot help myself!)

Look how BIG they are getting! They will be 18 months old tomorrow. Sniff. Sniff

Check out my artwork on top of their Valentine cake for school. Ummm...stop laughing. I never claimed to be good at baking or decorating. I couldn't write with the darn icing thingy, so I just drew hearts and laughed the entire time. Happy Valentine's Day!

Quick Update

This weekend, the Garber family came to visit from Tallahassee! We played hard, slept hard, ate tons of food and had a great time catching up! When we woke up Saturday morning, Elizabeth had the great idea of taking all of the kids to park! We called Whitney and Campbell, and they met us there too...

Wow. Was it ever nice to get away for the weekend. Just time for me and Todd. The Mommy and Daddy. We saw Avatar in 3D, grubbed at Carrabba's, relaxed, went to bed early, and woke up just as early (must be our internal alarm clocks kickin' in...), ate breakfast in bed, took a nap and came back home!!!! Our bed and breakfast was incredibly quaint and romantic, with amazing food, a comfy bed, superb views, a huge garden tub and everything we could have asked for.

Here is our room:
And the beautiful view:And the back of Henderson Inn. Even though we were only 15 minutes from home, we felt like we were far away! Doesn't it look "New Englandy?"While we bed and breakfast'd it, Nana and Gator took the boys to the park, to the pet store and just had a good old time! Thank you again guys!
This picture cracks me up. Check out Wade's face!! He used to love to swing and now it terrifies him! We even tried to put him in the swings in our front yard and he started shaking and said "out"! Awww...he also does not like to stand on changing tables or sit on counter tops. While he is very daring and has no fear, this seems to be his exception to that rule. As long as he is on the ground, he is fine!B-man loving life on the swing!!!!
Here are some pics of our sweet boys from this past week.
Always a nose running or a mouth drooling....A little synopsis on Brody and Wade, in their 17 month of life:

Brody Lee...sensitive, smart, inquisitive, tender, sweet soul; everything is "mine", hates to share Mommy and Daddy with Wade, loves getting a bath and splashing, would prefer to do everything on his own, is repeating every word you ask him to repeat, loves all foods, cannot go to sleep with out water, says, "Wade" every morning when he wakes up; Loves to cuddle with Daddy on the couch and is momma's little love...

Crazy bed head:

Looks sad, but he is VERY focused on the camera! It is hard to get him to smile lately when I bring out the camera. He is intrigued with the lens and the buttons...maybe he will be a photographer!Wade Aubrey...daring, curious, intelligent, a cuddler, a great sharer; seems to bite his brother when the going gets tough, follows directions very well and everything already has to be "just so", is climbing anything and everything, likes to help with tasks, loves juice and looking at books with animals; runs everywhere he goes, is all boy, finally has a full head of hair and will tell you "Not nice" if you upset him and is momma's little love...

See, he is always running!!While B-man took a long nap, Todd and Wade spent sometime out in the front yard, rolling down the hill and running all over the place!

Daddy telling Wade all there is to know about life...or, maybe just not to go in the street?

And of course, discussing the importance of trucks...Daddy bought the boys a little present...a new tunnel to crawl and play in! They absolutely love has little mesh windows all throughout and they play peek a boo through them and chase each other through the tunnel! How fun to have a playmate at all times!
We are awaiting our appointment with my OB on February 11th to make sure all is well with our 3rd little Pea in the Pod! While we are thrilled with our little miracle, we do understand how important these first few weeks are for the viability, health and overall well being of the baby. You just never know at this point!! Please keep the little one in your prayers that all goes to plan and that I have a healthy and stress-free pregnancy! Thank you for all of the well wishes, via email and Facebook! xoxo
