Baby # 2...

We went to the Dr. today and found out that Baby # 2 is a girl! We are still throwing around names, but we are aiming towards " Bella Grace." I have always loved the name and Matt did not like it at all for Alyssa but loves it this time around! Weird!?!?!
I was so sure that this one was a boy. I had a name all ready "Christian Matthew" and the room done up in my head. This just shows that God is in control of every situation!
We could not be more excited. I am looking forward to raising 2 little girls. I always wanted a sister and I am so excited Alyssa will be able to share that bond with her sister! Matt is very excited for another little girl! I think he was pulling for a girl the whole time!! So sweet! He is way out numbered now!! YAY!!

Heat of the Summer, St. Louis, 5 months pregnant, and organizing!!

This has been a busy yet wodnerful summer so far. The heat is almost more than I can handle at this point and I feel a slight bit of suffocation everytime I step outside. It is amazing how children apparently don't feel that at all. Alyssa would play outside all day long if I would. I would just die! She loves to be outdoors which I am very thankful for (in the fall and spring).

Matt and I had a great time in St. louis. We went to a John Mayer concert and a couple of Cardinal games and we shopped and ate a lot! It was a great long weekend for us and we look forward to taking another trip soon! We are heading to Dallas at the end of August to shop and visit some friends. We are taking advantage of only having one child until December. Though we are looking forward to baby number 2 coming along, we know it will be more difficult to do these things with multiple children!
Have no idea how to rotate the picture! Sorry! ANy help??

I will be finding out in a week what we are having! We can't wait! I have a feeling it is a boy, but you just never know! I can't believe I am already in my 5th month! I will post some pictures of the belly soon!!! It is growing!

Alyssa is with her grandparents for a few day and Matt is working on a retaining wall for some landscaping and I am working on some organzing! It is amazing the stuff you accumulate. We have an extra bedroom in this house but we are still out of room! How is that possible? It apparently is! I am hoping to get the middle bedroom(toy room) closet organized tonight with labeled storage bins for all my crafting stuff! That will be so helpful.

Well I have rambled on long enough! I am just glad I had something to talk about!

Have a great week!

The New Pool...

Here are a couple of pictures of Alyssa and Daddy in her new pool. We got one of those above ground blow up pools and I must say that thing is pretty awesome. I get in it everyday for a little bit while she is napping and it is quite relaxing and nice to get some free uv rays! So here is the little girl!
