Congratulations Taylor and Megan!!

This weekend Taylor (Collins' brother) asked Megan to marry him!! As you can see from the big rock on her finger she said 'yes!' Cheers to the happy couple!

I'll give you a quarter!

Last night brought back a flood of memories as my daughter rubbed my feet!! I didn't even ask her to she wanted to pamper her mommy! My mother would offer us kids a quarter if we would rub her feet. I personally would get suckered in every time. I had motive, back then a quarter could get you 2 Airheads and 5 pieces of bubble gum from the corner drug store. I am referring to an old drug store in Lebanon, IL! What a great place.

Lawson actually did a great job and I didn't have to give her a quarter! Once she wises up I am sure I will have to offer her a dollar!

A "Little Maridith"

I have to post some of Lawson's funny/ sweet comments from the last couple of days. She has just become a regular comedian!! Collins says she is becoming a "little Maridith." World watch out!

One night last week Lawson was having trouble going to sleep. After about 1 hour of trying to get her into bed she comes up to me and says "Mommy my tummy hurts" I asked her if she had a tummy ache she said with an painful look on her face while holding her belly, she said "No, baby brother is kicking." I about fell out of the chair laughing. I couldn't help it!

This morning Lawson woke me up. As she was opening up my door she sweetly said "good morning mommy. It is time to wake up. Did you sleep well?" What an angel!

This weekend we went to a Halloween Party and she had a great time. She dressed up as an NCSU Cheerleader. I don't want to brag but I think her dressing up gave NCSU the luck they needed. We got our first Division 1 win, on the road since 2005!! That is a long time!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend! No pictures today.

Hill Ridge Farms

This weekend we went to Hill Ridge Farms in Youngsville, NC. We had the best time!! Lawson got to feed the animals, go on a 80 foot slide, ride a train, go on a hayride and pick out her own pumkin. We went with some of our other friends and had a blast! I think we are going to make this a yearly tradition!

Fireman's Picnic

This weekend we went to the Fireman's Picnic. Lawson was so excited to see the firetrucks up close. Lawson loves to sing a song about Firetrucks. The song has this silly tune to it and I have caught myself on more then one occasion singing it to myself!

Baby Update: Baby Fitts or "Baby Brother" as Lawson refers to him seems to be doing great. I swear on Thursday morning I woke up I could tell I had gotten bigger. I am now 27 weeks. 13 weeks to go! I think I am in my 3rd trimester now. Don't quote me. I have been really bad about reading books about pregnancy and "what to expect" because I don't have time. I am happy to report that Collins and I have decided on a name. We are going to keep it to ourselves for a while to make sure it "Fitts" but I am sure it is a keeper.

Pictures of Baby Fitts 2

Here are some 3D Pictures of Baby Fitts. I would love to call him by name but we still do not have one! He looks perfect and is very healthy! We are now 26 weeks are doing great. Isn't technology an amazing thing?

Old verses New!

My sister is probably going to kill me for posting these picture!! I was looking through some old pictures of Lawson and ran across some really old pictures of my sister Lauren. I know Lawson is a good mix of both Collins and myself but I can't help but think that Lawson really looks like my sister (btw-who is beautiful). If she did turn out like Lauren it would not be a bad thing at all! So her are some other pictues. You decide!

I love the Fall!

This weekend we went to Pullen Park with Nana and Dah. It was so much fun. I am pretty sure we had just as much fun as Lawson did. The weather was perfect! She loves riding on the train. I think if we would let he she would stay on it all day!

In Lawson news: Lawson "asked" to sleep in her big girl room last night and slept the entire night there. I haven't forced or even mentioned to Lawson to sleep in her new room. I figured when she was ready she would ask and sure enough she did! Then when I woke her up this morning she turned to me and said half awake "mommy I'm dry." Sure enough my big girl was completely dry. She is potty trained and can make it through naptime, but night time has been a different story. I am not going to throw-away the pull-ups yet but I could tell she was so proud of herself! Lawson is 2 years old and 4 months and sometimes I think she acts like a 4yr old. They grow up too fast!
