Ladies and Gentlemen, It's a...

Sweet baby GIRL sucking her thumb!

GIRL!!!  Can you believe it?!  The whole time I have totally thought we were having a boy, along with everyone else that has seen me.  Poor Daddy...overthrown by 3 daddy's girls, a wife, and a female dog.  Bless his heart...that is a lot of estrogen!  We went in for our 20 week ultrasound and I was convinced it was a baby boy, but when the tech asked if we wanted to know the good news or the bad news I knew right away it was another girl.  No ultrasound tech in their right mind would have told us there was something abnormal with the baby by asking if we want the bad news!  Anyway, now that we have found out we will have Cleveland girl #3 in April we are off to play the baby name game.  This one could take a while!  Jimmy and I can't seem to agree on anything.  Abbie loves the name Ella but it is not one of our faves.  Poor thing, she talks to my belly everyday calling it Ella...has for many weeks now.  I keep telling her that isn't the name but I suppose she isn't going to give up until we fill out an official birth certificate.  Everything else in my pregnancy is going great!  I can't believe I am already half way done.  Time has flown by but I am sure that has NOTHING to do with the fact that I am constantly consumed with chasing after an extremely active and onery 18 month old.  It just doesn't seem possible that my sweet baby girl is already 18 months old.  Where does the time go?

I am getting in the holiday spirit.  Trying to find time to decorate the house...again, not an easy task with an 18 month old at home.  I am very interested to see what she thinks about the tree. Last Christmas she was just starting to sit up so I never had to worry about her messing with anything.  I have a feeling that this year my tree will only be decorated from the middle up! Curious and mischevious little girl!  My dad and Diane are keeping Sloan tomorrow night so I am going to have him bring in all of my holiday boxes when he comes to pick her up.  As soon as she leaves though, I am off to do some shopping.  Going to fly out the door and shop until I drop.  It is so much easier to get things done without Sloan's "help".  I love her dearly but she is absolutely not the best shopping partner!  If I were smart, I would have shopped a little here and there over the past few months, but I haven't so it is crunch time!

Thanks for checking in on us!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is enjoying the Christmas season!

Weekend of Cheerleading!

This weekend was full of cheerleading.  Abbie has been on a Tiger League team, the Cowboys of course, for three seasons now and loves it!  Saturday she had a game.  It was the final game of the season and the winner advanced to the Super Bowl.  Sadly, we lost but the boys played great and the girls had fun cheering them on as always.  Sloan loves going to the games.  She stands at the fence and just yells Abbie's name over and over again.  I am sure she can't wait until she can get out there and shake her little tooshie too!

Sunday her cheerleading squad competed in a real competition.  It was called Cheer Mania and was hosted by The Colony High School.  They won 2nd place in their division and I must say that they defeated some pretty awesome teams!  They looked so cute with their glitter eye shadow and red lipstick...I could tell I was hormonal because after their performance all of the parents were in the stands cheering extremely loud and the girls just looked so excited and proud of themselves that I found myself getting teary eyed.  Hahaha!  Not typical of me at all.  Abbie was so excited they won 2nd place because 3rd place and above got a trophy instead of a medal.  Her Mimi bought her flowers for a job well done so when we stopped for lunch on the way home, Abbie of course had to bring her flowers and trophy in to the restaurant.  The hostess made a huge deal about how awesome it was that she won and you could instantly see her swell with pride.  Priceless memories.

Jimmy is in Glen Rose, TX for the first part of the week.  His boss takes all of the managing partners on an annual hunting trip.  If you know Jimmy, then you know that he isn't exactly the "hunting type".  Well, his boss bought him an awesome $5000 Barretta shot gun (thanks John!) and we made a trip to Bass Pro for some hunting gear and he was set.  He left Sunday morning and will be back some time Tuesday night.  I talked to him this morning and he has shot 3 quail and 5 pheasant so far.  Good Job Daddy!  There is no telling how many times my beginner hunter had to fire that shot gun to actually get 8 birds, but still he has shot 8 birds on his first trip!  He said he is having lots of fun and is already looking forward to next years trip.

Like I said, November is a really busy month for us so keep checking in!  Lots of fun stuff going on so stayed tuned!

First Post

Sweet Sisters!

So, after following many people's blog for some time now, I finally caved and decided to start one of my own.  I feel like there is always so much going on in this crazy world of ours so I figured this would be an easy way for everyone to keep up with the daily chaos that is our life!  Also thought it would be a good place for Jimmy to see pictures of the kids while he is working out of town, so be prepared to see lots!

The newest piece of information to share is that we are expecting baby #2 in April!  Everyone is really excited and of course hoping for a boy but we are mostly just focused on having a healthy baby.  I finally got to schedule my big ultrasound so if baby cooperates we will find out December 1st if it is pink or blue.  I am praying for a boy for Jimmy's sake...3 girls and a wife?!  Sheesh!

November has already started and brings a very busy month for stay tuned to see what life brings!  Thanks for checking in!
