Now back to our regular scheduled blogging...

I'm going to try anyway!
I miss blogging! If it wasn't for blogging the last 4 years, I don't think I would remember most of what we did. I love to look back at all the fun memories. Not to mention all the amazing friends I've meet through blogging. So.......I've decided to make it a point to at least blog once a week.

Where were we?.......

I think I left off on Valentines week...... This is a picture of my me and my Valentine. He had just walked in from a long day at work. Poor guy has been working so much, but we are so blessed that he has work!

You can see I'm all dressed up in sweats for my Valentine. I try to look nice for him when he gets home but by that time of night I'm beat!

The weather has been so nice lately. I love hot weather. I say this now but come Aug I'll be crying to you all when I'm swollen sweaty and about to pop!

We are enjoying playing outside more. Our new project is a kiddie pool garden.

I went out and got the kids some new spring clothes and sandals... and Slurpee's to make them behave:)

Baseball is in full swing! I feel like we live at the field. Here are some pictures of Landen's first game. I showed up about 20 minutes late. I was running around other kids. When I got there I saw him playing shortstop with a big wad of gum in his mouth. I'm not sure who gave him the gum, but he looked like a real ball player out there! He noticed me in the bleachers when he went up to bat. He looked at me and gave me a big thumbs up....oh, I love that kid!

This picture cracks me up. Do you see the boy playing in the dirt in the middle of a play?

Landen loves having his Daddy to help coach. Actually, since Daddy is working late now Austin is assistant coach for Landen's team during practice. Landen loves having his big brother to help too! It's a good learning experience for Austin to help as well! Daddy is mostly the assistant coach at the games.

Here's a picture of when Austin played T-ball!
Both my boys are #1:)
They look so much alike.

I'm still enjoying dressing Farrah for Ballet Farrah is still enjoying Ballet.

She just needs to learn to straighten her leg;)

big leap!
We are staying busy in school as well. Faith is studying the California missions. Here's us at the San Gabriel Mission.

My kids love for me to take pictures of them....

Here is Landen making a St. Patricks Day wreath for our front door.
He's doing it in a pattern and it's helped him to learn to almost tie his shoe.

Yay for busy work!

His finished product! He's so proud of himself. That's a lot of little knots for the little guy!

Oh, and I bet your wanting to know some baby news....... Here I am at 17 weeks!
Thank God, I am feeling much better!!!!
My hair is growing so fast (thank God!)....and so is everything else *sigh*
I love my belly bump, but seriously the back bump can stop growing already!

I finally had a doctors appointment and everything looks good. I love my new doctor! He was willing to listen to my concerns and we talked a lot about my options. They looked over my past medical records with my past 2 c-sections and will monitor me as I get farther along. My doctor would be willing to let me try a v-bac but my insurance won't cover me to deliver at the hospital that allows v-bacs. I'm delivering at a great hospital but they don't allow v-bacs there. So after a lot of prayer, I am going to be having my 3rd c-section.
Although, I would love to just deliver like Jodi Mockabee from the Bee Hive she just gave birth v-bac in her own hallway!
How cool would that be...oh, whoops here comes baby. No recovery from surgery to deal with! baby Ryan a boy or a girl?
Well, at my doctors appointment the baby was moving around so much we couldn't get a clear shot. The doctor said it's still to early to really tell.
Then we went in a couple days later to have a scan done at just one of those walk-in places. While looking at the screen I thought I saw a little pee pee. So did my husband and so did the kids...but the tech said it looked like a girl to her.
It was hard to tell...
I personally think it's still to early to tell 100%
I'll go back in at 20 weeks to take another peek and let you know for sure!
Either way boy or girl, it's hitting me now....I'm having another baby!
I'm going to be a Mommy of 6!

So glad you are back blogging again. I have missed you! I love reading about the things you do and your family. The garden sounds like so much fun. Please give us updates on that as it grows.

OK..who cares about are one hot mama so there! I am so glad you are feeling well. I had my three girls in four years and all were through c-section, and decided to tie tubes because of the surgeries. Now my baby is 2 and I want more..maybe adoption in future if the Lord wills. God bless your beautiful family.

Jill said...

Wishing you all the best! You are a wonderful Mom! :-) Have a great day!

You look fantastic!
I hope you don't mind me saying, you do NOT have to have a section at that hospital.
You have choices, this is your body, your baby, your birth.
A hospital that will not allow a woman to choose the birth she wants is not a great hospital.

A VBAC even after 2 c/s is still less risk to you and baby. Do the research, speak to other Moms who have had vbacs.
Look under every stone and go after what you want!
