The kids got new backpacks this summer. Aren't they CUTE??
Lawson's official first day of school will be September 1st when all the kindergartners gather for the first time. She will be attending a Magnet School in Downtown Raleigh. It is a lottery to get in and we were fortunate enough to get in. We are super excited to see how Lawson blossoms this year. I pray that Lawson will enjoy school and keep her eagerness to learn! Lawson we are so proud of you!
PS- My friend Heather had her baby boy, Fletcher, at 10:42 this morning. Mother and baby are doing great. We are so thrilled for the Spesshardt family and look forward to meeting him tomorrow!

We are were thrilled to find out that our baby is a girl. She is healthy and looks great. Lawson was beyond thrilled to find out the news. She jumped up and down and screamed with delight. She has already started packing up her room with hopes the baby will share her room (right now that is not the plan.) Wesley doesn't realize he is going to be out numbered! Haha!!
As one of my friends texted me when I told her the news "let the sewing begin" oh I can't wait to start sewing for the new princess in the house! I think now is the time to buy and embroidery machine!
One request- I would really appreciate all the thoughts and prayers for me and the baby as we continue growing.
(Also, Thanks for participating in my poll!!)

If everything goes to plan we will find out the sex of Baby #3 on Tuesday August 24th. I will be 16 weeks and 6 days at that point and I am a little concerned it might be too early but as of today that is the plan.
So let's take a poll as to what you think the sex of the baby is! Poll is on the right hand side and everyone should participate-it's fun! Results to be annouced on Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!

All in the effort to keep things fun on these HOT HOT Summer days (WRAL just reported it is the 61st day this year we have topped 90 degrees.)
We were also Slip-n-Sliding at 9AM this morning! We can't go to the pool until next week. Wesley's ear drum ruptured last week and Lawson got croup, and I was sick too so we are just taking it easy this week.

This is the other reason why being pregnant while having multiple kids is VERY difficult. There is no "Happy Hour."
I put him in timeout for hitting his sister. 2 minutes in his room and one sly child who hoards things in his pockets. This is what I get.
Oh the joys of Motherhood.

I thought I would post to give an update on how I am doing the baby is doing and so forth. This time will pass so fast and I know I will forget everything if I don't write it down.
I am feeling great as long as I eat ALL. OF. THE. TIME! Since I know this about myself I snack constantly and this has seemed to keep sickness away. Amen to this blessing. With both of my other pregnancies I was sick during the end of the 1st trimester to 18 weeks.
I am tired but I think that is to be expected. I am probably a little bit more irritable, snappy, and just plain grumpy sometimes but my kids and hubby are tolerant (to a point.)
The children are so excited about the baby's arrival. Lawson hugs and kisses by belly everyday. Wesley kisses my belly too and then asks me to kiss his baby in his belly. Others seem to be excited as well. Our friends daughter, Siena, asked if she could kiss my belly today. Kids are so cute!
Lawson is getting ready. She has money in this bottle which I find ironic since formula and breast milk is liquid gold in my mind! haha!
Lawson thinks it is a girl. Wesley thinks the baby is a boy. I have no clue. So much for motherly intuition. I have no feeling one way or the other- healthy is all I care about!
I have not had a second appointment yet and that seems odd to me. I will go on August 16th.
Don't think of me as weird but since this is my last pregnancy I want to at least document my size every quarter. (I know this is a first pregnancy type thing but- this is for me!) I am thrilled that I have yet to put on maternity clothes but can feel I will be pulling them out in a week or two. .
