2nd Year Dance

Our Tiny Dancer completed her second year of Dance back in May! She did so great this year. She really loves going to class and seeing all of her friends. It's neat to watch her pay attention to her teacher and learn things. (Last year she pretty much just twirled around and acted silly :) I got her pictures from the studio yesterday and just had to share...

Quite sassy, huh? This hands behind the head thing was part of their dance and she just had to do it in the pictures. I think they turned out really cute, though. (despite the fact that it took two months to get them... another day, another post!)
Tap/Ballet goes from August-May so this summer I put Harleigh in gymnatics, which she loves, and it has lead to competition cheerleading. She has been going to gymnastics once a week, and now we will add another night of cheer starting tomorrow night. Seems like an awful lot of practice, so we will have to just see how it goes! I'll keep you guys updated!

Happy Birthday, Moose!

Today is my step-dad, Lawrence's birthday! He is very special to me and has been an awesome father figure in my life. He is so good to Josh and I and our kids. I can't thank him enough for everything he did for me growing up and for now being there for my kids. Here is a picture of him and my Mom with 3 of their grandbabies!

Happy Birthday, Moose! These two sure think a lot of of you and we all hope you have a wonderful day!

6 Months

I'm a little behind on this post, but I wanted to document it for my records, and update you all on my pregnancy anyways! I do my glucose test and register at the hospital this month and then I start going to the obgyn every two weeks! This pregnancy is flying by!

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 24 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 9 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I am not liking maternity clothes, but I am quickly outgrowing all of my clothes. I can still fit some larges from XXI and I am wearing a few maternity pants here and there.

Gender: It's a Girl! Lakyn Hope

Movement: This kid moves around all the time! If I drink something really cold she will go crazy, and she also moves a lot at night when I lay in bed.

Food Craving: Anything unhealthy! :)

What I miss: Nothing at the moment! I'm feeling great and enjoying being pregnant.

Sleep: I have been sleeping really well lately, the Total Body Boppy pillow my Mom got me helps a lot.

What I am looking forward to: Getting all of Lakyn's stuff organized and ready for her arrival.

Big Sister & Big Brother: Harleigh informed me today that we needed to go to the doctor to check her baby in her tummy (it's a girl named Sadie) And Trey doesn't call the baby Jack anymore. If I ask him the baby's name he says, "It's Lakyn, Mommy! It's not Jack anymore!" <-- They crack me up!
