Hurry Up and Wait

Dear Baby #3,
Your nursery is ready. And so is your family.

Your big sister Lydia keeps giving you kisses and zerberts.


Your biggest sister Madeline is taking such good care of mommy.....with foot rubs, back rubs, bringing me water and the list goes on and on. She's going to be such a big helper when you arrive.
We've been cleaning and baking this week.........just passing the time and waiting for you.
The doctor says I could cough and have you. So whenever you're ready, so am I.

Love,

Mommy

I've been meaning to post this picture for a while now. This was taken by Lydia's preschool teacher last fall. "Lydia, what big teeth you have!"

Happy 34th!!

Today is David's 34th birthday. I've been making him birthday cakes for 15 years now...the first birthday cake I ever made for him was on his birthday in 1993. He came to see me at my house in Jamesville on his weekend off from Camp Don Lee. This was a few months before we started dating. That seems like forever ago. This birthday, he's in a weight loss competition at work, so he tells me he will eat a tiny slice of cake. I guess that will just leave more cake for prego me and the rest of his family! At least I didn't have to do a Transformers cake this year!!
Happy Birthday, David. We love you!!!!!

School's Out!

Madeline's last day of school was on Tuesday. Seems like she just had her first day of school!

Here she is with Mrs. Skinner.


She received several awards last Wednesday at Awards Day. We are so proud of her. She has matured a lot this year and is reading and writing so well.


Here she is at fun day with her friend Key'Aisa.


Going down the big slide at Fun Day. It was a good year and I know she will do well in first grade. Do we really already have a first grader??

Swimming

Lydia's been taking swim lessons with Mrs. Debbie. She is doing really well, but still doesn't like putting her face in the water.


Here she is riding the "horsie".

Addie has lessons right before Lydia. Madeline loves to hold babies and is getting a little practice here.


Madeline practiced her cannonball a lot over the weekend. She loves to swim.



The pool was definitely the place to be over the weekend. We stayed cool in the water and with freeze-e pops.
Madeline, Lauren and Lydia enjoy their freeze-e pops!

Fun Times

With the HOT weather in full force, we spent most of Saturday afternoon at the pool. The water there is still a little on the chilly side. However, the temperature of the water hose and sprinkler was perfect!! When we got home from the pool, the girls had a ball playing with the water hose and the sprinkler.
Here, Lydia sprays Madeline.

Running through the sprinkler.

Being silly and walking over the sprinkler.
