First Hair Cut

We finally broke down and got our first hair cut! Vimmer's hair was starting to look pretty crazy and shabby and I swore I wouldn't be one of those mom's that didn't cut the hair just b/c it was baby hair. See what I mean? Crazy and Shabby.
We made it a family outing to visit our favorite Sport Clips stylist, and all the boys got their hair cut, even daddy.
Waiting patiently for our turn.

Fortunatly, Vimmer has seen big brother use a spray bottle on his hair and he has actually experianced the spray bottle for himself at home, so he liked being sprayed with water.

Snip Snip...

Big brother was a big help by being a big distraction.

Buzz Buzz...

All Done!!

He had to make sure and get her name so he would know who to come back to for his next cut!
Here are some pictures from today of the boys with both their hair cuts in their matching shirts that Bic and Pops brought them from Hawaii...

Feeling very blessed for all the sweet boys in my life!

20 Weeks Pregnant

20 Weeks- half way there! This pregnancy has flown by so far. It might be the one year old I am chasing around that is keeping me so busy and my mind off the time. The morning sickness stopped around 17 weeks. And I am starting to get my energy back up! I am currently in the process of purging all the closets, weeding out toys, and converting our office to a play room. The playroom will be the first room you see when you open the front door, so it is not ideal but defiently more practical and a better use of space. Especially since I will pretty soon have three boys to entertain and clean up after, one room with all the toys seems much more logical. And yes, if you were reading carefully, and have not heard yet, we are having another boy! We are all very excited, and I know Vimmer and him are going to be best friends.

A lot of people have been asking if I was really hoping for a girl and if I was surprised or a little disappointed. So I will just go ahead and put it all out there for those of you who are curious. I was actually really ok and not surprised at all. I guess I have kind of gotten over the 'girl' fever and really wasn't disappointed this time. I almost even expected it. And we have the boy toys, the boy clothes, the boy parenting books...we are pretty set for this one. The one thing we will need to invest in is a double stroller. So for those of you who have or had babies close and can recommend a good double stroller please let me know. I have one in mind but I really don't know much about them. I guess that is it for now...my belly should be expanding much more pretty soon. The maternity clothes have been pulled out and are just waiting to be used!

Happy 7th Birthday William!

This past weekend we celebrated William's 7th Birthday the good old fashion way....at the Skating Rink! It brought back so many memories from my childhood days. They even put William in the center of the rink and did the hokey pokey...the sad part was that my poor son didn't know what the hokey pokey even was! The kids all had a blast! Last year one of the boys broke his arm on an inflatable and I was sure that someone was going to break something this year. But surprisingly we all walked out un harmed-- besides a few bruised knees and backsides. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that I couldn't be out there joining in on all the skating fun.

William, you are growing into such a wonderful little man. I love your huge heart and sensitivity towards others. I love your toothless grin. Your honesty. The way you still come crawl in bed with us every morning before school. Your silly jokes. Your crazy rooster hair in the mornings. Your big hugs that hurt sometimes. Your obssesion with time lately. Your love for math facts. Your helpfulness. How your love on your brother. Your singing in the backseat. Your not so small feet. Those green eyes. And your overall excitement for life. I will never stop loving you, no matter what, and don't you forget it. But most of all, don't ever forget how much Jesus loves you andI pray that you would love Jesus with all your heart.
Happy 7th birthday baby boy!
