Baseball + Summer = FUN

WOW Its getting alittle warm in these parts the past few days. Middle TN is in the 90's and its such a body shock. A week ago I was wearing jeans and hoodies! Seems like alot of our activities are coming to an end, signaling SUMMER! The boys each have about 2 games left then end of season tournaments! They are having a blast and I love going out and watching them! Soon Spring ball will be over and SUMMER fun will begin! Also both boys are wrapping up school. Nick had his last day ever at pre-school Friday (it was so bittersweet) and Justin attends his last day of 2nd grade this coming Friday!! Then we will officially have a Kindergardener and a 3rd grader in the house - YeeHaw! ;)

Here are some pictures from this years baseball season!! Enjoy!

Were Has The Time Gone???

Lastnight Nick graduated pre-school. Of course mommy was a bag of tears, but I am so proud of my litle guy. WOW I guess hes not so little anymore!! He did a great job and smiled and sang and was a perfect little man! Its wild to see how much he has changed over these past 2 years at pre-school. ITs so bitter sweet and IM so excited for him to go to school, yet it breaks my heart as this part of his childhood is soon to be behind him! Here are some pictures of his big day!

Now that he has his pre-school graduation behind him, we did the next thing on his list and got him registered for Kindergarden this morning. He LOVED it and is so ready to go to "Big Boy" school with his brother!! Time - PLEASE SLOW DOWN!

A Year Ago Tonight - 38 Weeks

I typed this post a year ago tonight! Little did I know I was in active labor and would be at the hospital by Midnight and that Miss Emily would be here around dawn!! Its bittersweet to look back and read it now....

38 Weeks (I took this today)

So just wanted to update everyone on how things are going. Its Tuesday May 5th - HAPPY CINCO DE-MAYO!!! I had my 38 week appointment today and it went great! I went in at 9:30am and talked to my doctor about all my fears and things that had been going on cramping wise and stuff! She checked me and I was a "loose" 3cm and still around 60-70% effaced. She then proceeded to sweep my membranes, basically she slightly seperated that amniotic sac from the cervix, lovely sounding huh!

Then she sent me upstairs for a bio-physical ultrasound to check up on Miss Emily! Little chubby cheeks looked so cute on screen. She passed her ultrasound and was said to be weighing in at around 7.3ish pounds!

Then Nick and I came home and decided to walk around the block. By the time I got home I has hungry and hurting. I started having major cramps, but they soon slacked off. So now we sit and wait. We just got home from dinner, we went and ate Casa Fiesta with my mom. Ive been having some slight contractions. They are regular (about every 5-8 minutes) but they are not lasting long! I guess we will see what the night holds!

A Party.... Not yet!

We were scheduled to have Miss emilys 1st Birthday Party this past Sunday. Sadly Middle Tn suffered a disasterous blow, and we canceled Emilys party.. A party seems so un-important when you look at what everyone in Middle TN has suffered!

So after having everything ready to go and having to cancel the party they boys loved that we had soooo much fruit to snack on the past few days!! But we plan to reschedule Miss Ems party, and in all honesty its working out better having it later!! But not to let the cake go to waste that we had for her we went ahead and let her have it lastnight! and well.... she loved it!

OK Im ready...

Are you sure I get ALL of this????

Mmm this is pretty good...

Ok this is REALLY good

Wait this is soo much FUN

OK Im full!

Middle TN Flood of 2010

This has been a very sad and scary past couple of days here in Middle TN.. We are going through the worst flood parts of this state have EVER seen.. Thankfully we are safe. We do not have any water damage, but some of our neighbors are family are no so lucky! Finally today they opened the road out of our subdivision, but Nashville and other parts of Murfreesboro & Smyrna are still under water!! My uncle and Aunts houses both had their basements flood.. We are just all so thankful we are alive and safe!! Please pray for other families in the area though. So much devestation and life has been lost!!!

Also I had to cancel miss Emilys first Birthday party. Im not gonna lie, it broke my heart, but we are determined to make it up.. She will have her special day (even if she doesn't remember it).. :)

Here are some pictures I took..
