Big helper, getting ready to be big sister!

Piper is such a big helper. I think she is going to be great when her baby brother gets here.
Practicing swaddling :)
One day she decided to make her own sandwich.
Helping with the dishes :)
Maybe she will have a gift of serving.
~ She is always helping with the kids around here. 
I was sick & throwing up one day. No worries though. I had Dr. Piper taking care of me!
She painted this monkey for her brother :)
Sweet girl!

That's the good stuff!

Ultrasound today! 22 wks 5 days.

When we get to the dr.'s office Piper becomes Dr. Piper. It is too funny! She asks me questions about my pregnancy & then hides from Dr. Laws.
 Our little Paxton is doing great! At 22 weeks & 5 days he is weighing 1 lb 3 oz. We didn't get a good picture of his face b/c he kept his hands up there. It was so cute & he was wiggling like crazy! He's a mover!
 He was not shy to show us again that HE IS A BOY!!!  As soon as she put the machine on my belly she said "whoa, he's a boy for sure." 
Everything is looking great! Thankful for a great visit. 
I have gained 13 lbs (yikes). Dr. Laws says I am doing great though.
Still lovin' some veggies & fresh fruit. I think I am going to ware Beau & Piper out on squash & cabbage. 
He is a little mover. I don't remember Piper moving around this much.
Heart rate is 133.

We have been staying outside lately!! We've had a hard time making ourselves go inside.
One day I didn't have kids so Piper & I went to the walking trail.
 This past weekend we worked our tails off in the yard. It was hard work but we really enjoyed it. It's good to feel accomplished. Piper even helped.
 We burned brush & the rest of the leaves in our yard. We cleaned out the rock beds. Beau bleached the gutters.
 Flower bed has new mulch!

 Then we let Piper play in the water.

He's such a poser :)
We planted flowers & Piper loves helping me water them.
And more snowcones!!

Monday we headed to the park.

 Piper took a picture of dad & mom.
Monday evening we finally went in & cleaned the inside of the house. UGH!
Then more water fun!!
 Little stinker was trying to squirt her dad & mom!
Thankful for this GREAT wheather & time with my family!!
These are the best times!

Mother's Day 2012

Mother's Day weekend was busy but FANTASTIC!!
Mom & her girls with our #1 mom chocolate cake! Mmmmmm!!

 Matthew, Kayla, & Michael.
 Uncle Beau & Michael playing Candyland.
My sister Kayla surprised me with this little jewelry box & this bracelet. 
The jewelry box says "Becky A beautiful sister and amazing mother."
The bracelet had Piper on one side & Paxton on the other.
Yep, I cried when she gave it to me. I LOVE it!!!!
Even though I can't use it much right now. I love my new Keurig from Beau & Piper!
My card was so cute with the big pregnant belly & my pretty roses :)
I teared up alot with my gifts. They were all so thoughtful!!
I love my mom so much! I feel so blessed to have her as a mom. She really is the best! So thankful that I get to be Piper & Paxton's mommy. God really did have great plans for my life.
