Wrap Up and Things I've Missed

Dear Paisley,

With all that's been going on lately, I haven't exactly had the time to do a "sho-nuff" post so I wanted to put up a lot of things that I may have just skimmed over in the last few weeks.

First off, Halloween. You were the absolute cutest pig I've ever seen!

Then, I got crafty and started making you some outfits....

Yes, your domestic mama made that one! It was the first outfit I made for you!!! :) I can see a summer job manifesting for me, and I'm super excited!

Then, we hung out at Nana and Pappy's, went to see Santa, and cheered on our Rebels.

You love climbing on Pappy's lawn mower.

We like making messes....

Santa gave you a colored candy cane!
Go Rebels!!! Hotty Toddy! :)
We've also been working on this whole potty training thing. I would LOVE to get you out of diapers before Swayze gets here....we better get going on that one!

Oh, and don't forget Thanksgiving...

This year, I have so much to be thankful for. Especially you two! :)

That's the last month or so in a nutshell. I hope you get the gist of how busy we've been visiting and working and keeping up with you! Our Thanksgiving break is almost over, so I'm going to go chill for a bit.

Love ya babe!

Big Sister to a Little....

Dear Paisley, you're going to have a little sister!  You're daddy and I are soooo excited!!!
We found out yesterday, and you got to go with us to watch your baby sister on "TV".  It was so cute how you just stared at the monitor, and the tech even gave you your own picture of your sister.  You carried it around everywhere last night until you couldn't even see what was in the picture.  It was so crinkled up, but you kept saying "my picture" or "my sister".
Her name is going to be
It's so cute how you say her name as Fayze Kate.  I can already tell y'all are going to be good friends! (Once you learn to share a bit better!)
Daddy's going to have his hands full with a house full of girls!  I guess we'll have to get him a male dog in the mean time to help balance out some of us.  I can't wait to dress you and Swayze up alike for church and other outings.  Two girls, two weddings, and two girls to grow up together and be best friends.  I can't wait!!!  :)
(I hope the pictures I attached came through.....)
XOXO, Mama

Come on Thursday!

Dear Paisley,
Thursday CANNOT get here fast enough!  That's our next doctor's appointment, and we cannot wait to find out if you're going to have a brother or a sister.  I have pictured our house both as the only girl grandchild in the family for ever and you as a great big sister and friend to a little sister.  I think we have decided on a name for a girl, but the boy name is still up in the air.  Everything will be so much easier when we find out!  I don't know how anybody goes through this not wanting...ok HAVING to know what the gender is!!!  The suspense is killing me! :) 
You are such a smart cookie!  I picked you up from daycare the other day and your teacher said that every one comments on how smart you are.  All the parents, teachers, everybody.  And you are the youngest one in your class!  It makes me so proud that you impress people.  I hope this next one is just as smart as you are!
It's tough though when things come up that your dad and I have to be at like basketball duty at school.  I can't imagine what it will be like when we have two of you to keep up with!  Even though we're only 5 months into this, it seems like it's going by a little faster this time.
I've got SO many pictures to share with you!  I can't wait until I figure out how to do it from work!!! :)

Jesus Loves Me!

Dear Paisley,
This week it seems like you have grown up so much!  You are singing all the words to "Jesus Loves Me", saying all of your ABC's, and counting to 10!!!  You are acting like such a big girl.  In the mornings when I leave for work, you say "Bye, bye, Mommy.  See you later!"  :)  It's sooooo cute and makes my heart melt.  You've gotten to where you climb on top of me at night when you get sleepy and root like a little puppy.
I can't upload pictures from my computer at work, so I'll have to put some up later when I get home.
Here's what's going on with me this week.  I go in a week to hopefully find out what we're having....I HOPE it cooperates this time!!!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby #2 is the length of a banana
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 10 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Both, maternity when I feel like being comfortable

Movement: I've been feeling the baby a lot more lately, but not as much as Paisley moved when I was pregnant with her
