Crazy Hair Day

During the last week of school Hadley's class had crazy hair day.  I let her decide what she wanted and she wanted lots of ponytails with lots of bows.  Here she is ready to go.

34 weeks

Time for another belly picture.  It is just getting bigger :)  I was amazed that I have not gained any weight in the last month.  I hope this baby is sucking some fat from my thighs.  I am feeling pretty good.  Just the normal pregnancy tired and having a hard time sleeping for long periods of time.  I am feeling the need to nest but Mike is not wanting any baby stuff in the apartment until last minute.  He has offered to rent me out to nest at other people's houses.  Mike and I are getting very excited to meet this little man and so are the girls.  Jillian asks once a day if it is "ly" (July) yet so she can meet brother.  They both love to talk to my belly and talk about how they are going to help once he is here. I think I will have lots of help!
I also just realized I never put his name on here.  I didn't know if we would ever agree on a name but we found one we both love, Trenton Michael.

Last Day of school

Jillian had her last day of school last Thursday.  I love to compare pictures from the first and last days of school.  Here she is on the first day of school.
 And here she is on the last day of school.  I think she has lost the baby look in her face.

House progress

If you don't want to be bored with house pictures please skip this post.  We are finally getting to a point that I would like to take pictures of the progress on the house once a week.  We have been very excited to see progress each day and things are moving right along.  I don't know all the technical terms so will just leave you with pictures.

You can see that the house right next to us is being framed.  We are hoping that framing started at our house today.  They delivered lumber this morning.  More pictures to come next week.

Dance Recital

Last Saturday was Hadley's dance recital.  She has been counting down the days for weeks.  She couldn't wait to wear her costume and get to wear makeup.  She did a great job and was so excited to have Lady and Granny in town to watch her.  She also loved getting flowers from her Daddy.

I wanted a picture before we left and this is how she posed.
Then Jillian needed to pose too.

Lady, Hadley,Granny and Jillian
It was a little windy for pictures after the recital.

It was a great recital and we are very proud of our dancer.

Mother's Tea

On Tuesday, Jillian had a Mother's Tea at her school.  Each class sang a few songs for their Mommies.  I was lucky enough to have heard these songs over and over at home.  Jillian loves to sing.  It was so much fun to watch her up on stage.  I think she was busy looking for daddy the whole time because she would look at me and then look around.  Mike was in the back and I had moved up from to take pictures.  She finally saw him as she was headed off stage.
Here she is with big sister.
Time to sing.  The girl in the pink next to her is her good friend Brynlee.  They love to play together.

High school graduation

On Mother's Day my youngest brother graduated from high school.  I am still a little in shock.  I think it was just yesterday that I was hugging on this little boy.

Now to look at him I have to look up.  He is my big, little brother.  We are so very proud of you Alex and can't wait to see what you have in store for the world.  Good luck at ESU next year.
Here is Alex after officially graduating.  He is the one in the middle with sunglasses.
Mom and her youngest.  Her last child to graduate from Winfield High School.  I wonder if she let out a sigh of relief that we all got our high school diplomas :)

Jordan, Mom, Alex and me.
Check out this cute little man, Ethan wearing his mommy's glasses.

Alex and Loryn
Mom, Alex and Avery
I am so glad I was able to go back and be there to watch Alex graduate.  It was a short trip so Mike and the girls stayed home.  I made it home just in time for some night time cuddles on Mother's Day.

32 weeks

Here is a picture of me at 32 weeks pregnant.
I am 33 weeks now but am just getting time to post this.  Things with the pregnancy are moving right along.  Little man will be here before we know it.  I am starting to feel pretty uncomfortable but that just comes with the size of my belly.  This boy loves to move all the time.  The girls still love to talk to my belly.  We are starting to get all the baby stuff out and it has become the new toys for the girls.  They love using it all with their baby dolls.  I can't wait to see them with their baby brother.

Here I am at 31 weeks pregnant with Hadley.
And here I am at 32 weeks pregnant with Jillian.
