Fair & Carnival 2012

Piper has been asking for 2 months to go to the carnival. She just couldn't wait.
Ann R. let Piper feed her baby calf. Piper was so excited! 

She would ask all the animals "hey, are you makin' all that noise."
Piper giving Ellery a hug :) They are so sweet!
Beau & I LOVE seeing Piper laugh on the rides. It is so sweet. 
She rode the teddy bears that spin around & I was a little worried. She was on there with a little boy who spun it fast but she laughed so hard. 

Piper was scared at first to go on this one. Once she went through it she wouldn't stop. She LOVES this now!! She would get to the top & yell & wave at us.
Piper, Joslyn & Keeta on the roller coaster. Piper loved this & rode it several times. 
Another friend... Drew :)
Feeding animals in the petting zoo.
We thought these Alpaca's were funny!

Great night!
Then we went to the parade the next day.

36 weeks & Diaper shower

I cannot believe that I am 36 weeks pregnant with this boy! Sometimes it still seems to good to be true that we are having another child. There was a time when I didn't know if we would get to have another or not. The Lord is SO good!

Symptoms: I am more uncomfortable with Paxton than I was with Piper. I'm sure my age has something to do with that too. It was 5 years ago since I have been pregnant with her & it makes a difference. I get so achy sometimes I can't hardly walk. My upper inner thighs get so sore & my tailbone hurts.
I get a sore spot on the outside of my belly. I can't remember what it's called but it's sensitive to touch & feels like it's stretching.
Weight gain: plus 24 lbs
My favorite part of this pregnancy: Feeling him move. He still moves SO much. I just love it! My belly just rolls & it's so neat.
Cravings: Still mostly fruit & veggies. I have been into peaches lately.

At my dr. apt the US tech said his head is down pretty low. That's great! Maybe it will be pretty soon. His heart rate was 151. He would not move his hand from his face. She tried real hard to get him too but he wouldn't. He wiggled his fingers for us though. She also confirmed (again) that he's a boy!
I did my group b strep test today & should find out the results next week. He will also check for dialation next week.
Diaper Shower
I had my diaper shower in lifegroup today.
 Piper had fun going through his stuff with me :)

I just feel so blessed! Thankful!!

Piper's in Pre-K

This last weekend we wanted to do something fun for Piper "going to school". 
She wanted to go bowling. She cried b/c she lost. (might be a little competitive) We had so much fun!
Beau & I wanted to do something special for her b/c going to school for the first time is a big deal. We got her a bible with her name on it. It is way cute!
Taking her bible to church.

Piper has been waiting all morning for school. She was not sad at all. She just kept telling me "mom just try your best to not cry." Piper goes on Tues & Thurs for 2 1/2 hours.
 Mrs. Baker pinning her name tag on. Mrs. Baker is so sweet!
 She met a new friend as soon as we got there. Michaelyn.  Piper was just playing & so happy to be there.
Piper also got to play with Daisy F. & she met a knew friend Lula.
Piper says her first day of preschool was GREAT! I was so happy to pick her up. Mrs. Baker said she was so sweet. She also said she was 4 going on 24. I thought that was cute & oh so perfect!

Daddy daughter date night- Luau at FBC

Beau & Piper were both so excited to go on their date at the church. I am so glad the church does that.
 Piper LOVED drinking out of these coconuts.
 How cute is this table.
 Beau ended up sitting at a table with the Edge band members. They called him a "groupie".

 They played limbo. Piper loved it. She had so much fun with this. Beau said when he did it that Piper was so cute cheering for him.
I am so thankful Piper has a dad like Beau. I was not blessed with a good, loving dad. I am so glad I didn't marry a man like my dad. Most girls do that. Beau is amazing! So glad you two got to have this time together!!

Michael's 6th birthday

Michael is 6!! We surprised him at his house when we celebrated. He got home after school & got so embarrassed when he walked in that he almost walked back out.
 He wanted an Angry Birds/dinosour birthday party.
 Happy birthday Michael Wayne!!
 Best friends!
 He got trains, super hero stuff, & dinosours.

 The Hulk is his favorite!
 His dad & mom got him 2 new kittens. Batman & Robin.
Then him & Piper did some swimming.

We love you so much Michael Wayne!!!
