Baby Oh Baby!

Yes, that is a positive result. We are soo excited and couldn't be more thrilled about having a 3rd! Due date is set for Dec. 6. Can't wait! Sleepless nights here I come!

My Girls

Chloe is 8 years old! I have an 8 year old. That makes me feel soo old and I'm not even old! She is almost done with 2nd grade and I can't believe she will be starting 3rd grade in the fall. This girl never ceases to amaze me. She is smart, focused, determined and full of life. Show that girl a party and she will show you a good time!
I think she is the only 8 year old I know that comes home from school with a wad of cash and her classmates shoes-no literally she has come home with a pair of shoes. I think she is secretly running the Chicago mafia. Is it wrong of me to be going to my 8 year old for cold hard cash

I can't believe that she is mine because we are really opposite. I don't think I was that focused and intense when I was her age. I was probably still mindlessly playing with barbies and dolls. Watch out because this little girl is going to run a Fortune 500 Company one day!

So, looks like Ava discovered her pout face. This happens every time she dosen't get her way. Kindof makes it hard for me to say no but I try and stick to my guns. Ava is growing by leaps and bounds. I kid you not this girls feet have grown a whole size in 2 months. She's also grown about 3 inches. She use to be my petite one and now I'm sure she'll be taller than me by the time she turns 8!

I love Ava for her sweet spirit and how she observes the world around her. It's nice having two kids who are completely opposite in every way. Makes life interesting around here for sure. She finishes her last day of school on June 9 and I can't believe how quickly the year has gone by. It brings a tear to my eye knowing that she will be in school everyday next year. I asked her the other day if she was sad that school was ending and she looked at me with those big brown eyes and said "No mommy because now I get to be with you". Ahhh...I love 5 year olds!
Ava loves to read and play teacher. She is quite the artist. She has come a long way this year with her alphabet and numbers (thank you Mrs. Beights) . I love that she is starting to write her own sentences and she loves to make her own books. Ava is not one to hog the spotlight and never likes to be in a crowd of people. She is compassionate, thoughtful, smart, and witty. I love this girl!
