We LOVE chocolate!!

We love our chocolate in this family...and Warner has followed right along. He and Chris shared a fudge pop the other night and this was the result. I wonder if I could coat vegetables in chocolate so he would eat them??!!

"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."
Psalm 37:4

Thank you so much for your sweet comments. To say we are excited would be a major understatement!! We are THRILLED!! It has been a long road for us, but God has had a plan for us all along that is even better than we can imagine! He has used our trials to bring us closer to let go...give it all to Him...and totally TRUST in Him! I had to let go of all my wanting and look at what He had already blessed me with - a great family, a precious little boy, a roof over my head. I had to say, "It's okay God, all I want is You." I learned a lot while participating in a great bible study - Wisdom for Mothers - one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Even now I am having to let go of my fears and anxiety from my past experiences and give it all to Him.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

We found out the good news on January 3. It was a big celebration, followed quickly by fear! We immediately told our parents and started praying. 3 plus months later, lots of ultrasounds, lots of prayers, and here we are - I'm feeling great!! My due date is September 8 and I cannot wait for the moment to meet this baby. I think I have a whole new appreciation of the miracle of life...and I can't wait to witness it again.

Because of my history and since we never really got any answers from our previous 2 losses, my doctor is following me very closely. In about 7 weeks I will start seeing my doctor every 3 weeks where I will have 3 different ultrasounds every visit. Toward the end of my pregnancy I will be seen twice a week - one time for an ultrasound, the other for a stress test. Please join us in praying for 3 specific things: (1) blood flow to the baby through the umbilical cord, (2) continued growth of the baby, and (3) adequate fluid levels. These are the three things all of this extra testing will be looking for. All of this just for precaution - not because these things will definintely be problems. We know that God is in control, and that He already knows the outcome of all this. We pray that the baby will continue to thrive and that we will get to meet this precious blessing in September.

We had our big ultrasound last Thursday and we are having...a precious little baby boy!!! God is so good!! We are thrilled that Warner will have a little brother to grow up with.

Now the fun begins...

there's something you should know...

our new addition

Isn't she a cutie?? Chris surprised us both with this baby girl on Monday afternoon. She's as cute as can be, but she cries A LOT - it's getting better though. I think she's already figured out how to get what she wants...last night she slept inside. We didn't want our neighbors to kill us! She loves Warner and follows him everywhere - I hope they will be the best of friends! We still haven't named her, so if you have any ideas let us know.

after a long day at the grandparents...

HE'S OUT!!! I thought this was cute with his Thomas the Train sunglasses on....he couldn't make it one more second.

Easter 2009

Here are some pictures from our Easter day. We had a great day with family...but unfortunately I wasn't very good with taking pictures. I've got more to update so look for some new posts later this week!
The Easter bunny came!! Warner LOVES gum and somehow the Easter bunny knew it too!

our family - these 2 people make me so happy!!

Good Friday

Warner LOVED dying Easter eggs this year!! His favorite part was taking them out of the dye and seeing the finished project. I love seeing things through his eyes!! Being a mom is the best gift I have ever received. Thank you Jesus for this precious little boy that I get to call my son. I pray that he will grow up knowing that Easter is much bigger than dying Easter eggs!! We are in love with this little boy and to think that Jesus loves him even more than that!!

have you ever seen anything cuter??

I just had to share this picture that Gibson sent me today. We love you baby Laurel!!

thank you Easter Bunny!!

When Warner woke up from his nap this afternoon he had a package from the Easter Bunny, aka mamaw and aunt b. He was full of excitement - even though the pictures really don't show it. He repeated "oh boy" as he went through everything in the Easter basket. Thank you for our little package...he loved it all!!

in case you didn't notice...




Warner got a MAJOR haircut while we were in Dallas. My first reaction - "I hate it!"...but it has really grown on me. Even though it makes him look too big...I'll put it like Chris said, "he finally has a little boy haircut." Okay okay...I get it!!! He is my baby you know!! Can you tell I'm having a little problem letting him grow up? Which may explain the reason why he is not potty trained!! Well, the count down is on because he starts school in August and he HAS to be potty trained by then. How am I gonna let him go to school???!!

we're baaack!!

We just returned from a fabulous week in Dallas visiting Kissy & Buddy. The highlight of the trip was "A Day out with Thomas" - I have never seen Warner so mesmerized. He was literally speechless!!
Warner's favorite things - riding bikes, playing golf, and the park
