Why Hubs is Awesome...

I'm pregnant.
I get really hot...
all the time.
Those around me
(especially co-workers)
are suffering.

A couple of weeks ago I came home to this...
this is a fan...
in my bathroom!

Hubs evidently paid attention to me
whining mentioning that I was getting particularly hot
while spending time in the tub.

This fan has revolutionized tub time!

What can I say...
the man is amazing.

Bluebonnets and Randomness...

I posted a few pics of Ace in the bluebonnets recently, but have plenty more complements of Grandpa.
Several weeks ago, when we were keeping Sweet Girl for a few days, we headed out with all the grandkids, Gram and Grandpa for a photo shoot with his fancy new camera.
(Not that I'm shallow enough to get camera envy, but it's super amazing!)
Here's a few of my favorites...

Of course, there's not a single one with everybody looking at the camera,
and Sweet Girl doesn't like to do things that weren't her idea to begin with.
Imagine that :)

Gram with her redheaded wonders.
Me and my goof nuts!

And for some randomness...
(mostly related to "Carlos")
We bought a box of diapers this week...Hubs idea.
I freaked him out a bit last week by bringing up how much $$ we could save using cloth diapers.
I'm huge.
I might or might not post a pic to prove it.
Carlos spent all day Easter Sunday flipping over to vertex (head down) presentation.
While I'm really happy about this, Easter Sunday was a miserably uncomfortable day...
My nephew informed my mom this week that we won't know what my baby is after it's born.
He knows this because all babies are born with short hair, so we won't be sure for a while :)
He's hilarious.
He's also a secret spy for the CIA!
You think I'm joking, but I'm not.
I'd tell you to ask him, but it's a secret.

The Birthday Girl...

This sweet, adorable, dark haired angel recently did something that blew my mind...

That's right...
Bug, against my better judgement, because it's just not right that she could already be 7,
turned 7 recently!
She asked for a "3 step cake"
 We celebrated with a "small" family party at home.
I tease with small, because there's really nothing small about our family.
She also did something very brave to celebrate another year...
She bravely
(and I giggle a little when I use that term because it took 2 trips, BFF, and some bribery to accomplish this feat)
picked the most expensive ear rings in the case (of course)
climbed into the chair
stared fear in the face
She was so proud of herself!
I was proud too!
Now she's just counting down the weeks until she can change them out.

Happy Bday BUG!
I love you so much, and am loving watching what an exuberant young lady you're becoming!

This Boy...

is Adventurous...
and all mine!

He makes me laugh a lot...he'll make you laugh later this week too!

I'm going to do my best to get caught up around here...
the clocks ticking.
