Monday, March 28, 2011's been a long time!

I can't believe the last time I updated our blog was the day Kate was born!! We've been busy and things are crazy...but great! Here are a few pictures of Kate taken just days/weeks after she was born. I have more recent ones I'll post soon.

This might be the only picture we have of the four of us so far!

Almost Time...

Today we are 36 weeks pregnant and Kate is scheduled to arrive three weeks from today on December 8th. We feel pretty ready and prepared. Her room is in order, the car seat is in the car, everything is planned out for Mimi to take care of Joe and I and G to take care of Brady. : )
So, I've been reflecting a little lately. I LOVE our little family of three! I am so excited to add to our family but I am also nervous to see the bond between the three of us change.

I just love these two guys so much!!

Goodbye family of three...hello family of four!

Our camera is NOT broken...

Our camera is NOT broken. I have no excuse for why we haven't taken many pictures lately. We've done a lot of "picture worthy" things, but we have forgotten the camera. Here are a few pictures that were on my camera from a few weeks ago.

I can't believe how much Brady has grown.

Mimi, Brady and I went to Isle of Palms for the day a few weeks ago. The water was a little chilly, but Brady didn't care at all!

These are two examples of what I get from Brady when I ask him to smile for a picture. ; )

Brady fishing with Dad at Pop's Jamie's house. Brady has his own Batman rod now and he loves to practice casting it. He's so proud of himself. One of our neighbors who is 3 years older than Brady tried to cast it the other day and he couldn't do it. So, Brady said let me show you how my Dad taught me to do it. He actually taught the other boy how to do it.

This picture sums up our lives lately. We are outside ALL of the time. We go in to eat and take a bath and sleep. Well, does the screened in porch count as technically eating "inside"?

We had a great Easter Weekend!
Friday night we went to the Easter Egg Hunt at church. There was so much to do there and Brady had a great time. Saturday we went to Brycen's birthday party in the morning and we spent a few minutes dying Easter eggs in the afternoon. Brady did a great job with this.

Sunday's service was beautiful and very moving for Joe and I. I wish I could say the same for our Easter family picture...but it is what it take what you can get. This is the best picture we got of Brady...thank you Katie. Wouldn't this be a great sibling photo? Too bad you all know she's not ours. : )

This is how we felt about pictures once we got home!!

We quickly changed our clothes and headed to Mimi and G's for lunch and an Easter egg hunt.

After nap Joe and Brady did some yard work.

Then we finished off the day with a picinic dinner outside.

Catching Up...

Saturday March 13th Joe and Brian helped Bill and Caroline move so Tasha and I took the boys to the Saint Patty's celebration. The boys had a great time riding all kinds of rides together.

Saturday March 20th Joe and I took Brady to Farmville at EdVenture. They had all types of farm equipment and activities set up in the parking lot. The weather was beautiful and this was a lot of fun.

Brady loved "driving" this little tractor.

The wheel barrow races were serious business!!

Brady really liked these little goats.

Of course sitting on all of the tractors was a big hit!
