A Boy!

We're having a boy! I really couldn't decide if I wanted a girl or boy, but Tim sure had a preference. He let us know that he wanted a boy and his name should be Max. It's doubtful that we will name him Max. His second pick right now is "Blue." I'm 19 weeks along, with a due date September 19th. So far, the pregnancy has been easy with no complications. Everything at the ultrasound today shows a healthy boy too. Here's a little picture of him -- weighing approximately 10 ounces.

Easter morning

A little late, but here the two kids are on Easter morning. Ben had to work the night before and didn't get home until we were leaving for church. As he loaded the kids up in the car, I ran in and set the Easter baskets out. We told the kids that the Easter bunny came during church. We might continue that as long as we can because candy before church can't be the best idea.

Carolina did not like sharing the spotlight with her brother at all. This is the best picture of the two of them.

He has since been to see a real barber (instead of his mama) and gotten his hair fixed up right. :)

Catching Up...

This week, I'm going to try to catch up on our fun recent stuff. Timmy's birthday party, Easter, etc. First I have to include our first daffodils. You never know what you're going to get when you buy someone else's house. It seems like it took them longer to grow and bloom than most (I just took the picture yesterday), but we have a pretty shady yard. They are the super-small variety, but I'm happy to see them. I have lots of plans for the front flower bed and hopefully more pictures will come this summer. All that I have done so far is remove some ugly small Christmas tree-shaped shrubs. But more will be done this week.

The theme for Tim's 3rd birthday party was "red" -- it's his favorite color. I'm really not too fond of character themes anyway and I'm holding off as long as I can. I loved that everyone came decked out in red. Really fun -- except when you were trying to spot your child out of all the little ones and kept mixing them up. We had one 8-month old, three 1-yr olds, 4 2-yr olds (if you count Tim because it was nine days before his birthday), and a few older kids. Lots of fun!

Timmy's friend, Nicholas, helped him out at the last second to blow out the candle. Really sweet!
