Baby Love

Carson Robert was born today at 8:59 AM. He weighed 8lbs. 9oz. (exactly what Grayce did) and was 21 inches long. He is perfect!

We're gettin' hitched!

The picture does no justice for how beautiful it really is. After having a tired and worrisome day yesterday I came home to this! Eric was so sweet...he made me cry! Nothing big, but very special...he did asked me in the kitchen while Grayce was standing next to him. Her first question..."What do I get to be in the wedding?" LOL! Our plans are to go down to the court house in the next month and tie the knot...then when we go to the beach next year we will do a little beach wedding. I am very excited and very happy. I love you Eric!

New Shoes

Grayce got new shoes! Why is that so exciting you may ask? Because they are tie shoes! My girl learned how to tie her shoes and to celebrate she got new kicks. Congrats Grayce! I knew you would get it.

So I know I have a list of names above, but I had a dream about a name last night and want to know what people think. A lot of what happens in my dreams ends up coming true (no I don't have special powers or anything like that...I think it is just by chance most of the time). Anywho...what do you think of Carson? Let me know your thoughts. I would have just added it to the top poll but I can't figure out how to do that without starting all over, and I am just too lazy to do it right now.

Two HUGE Pieces of News!

HUGE news number 1:

Grayce went to school WITHOUT her woobie yesterday for the first time ever! I actually think the was the first time she has ever left home without least on purpose. She is really becoming a big girl! I didn't think the day would ever come. I know for sure that she is not giving up on wobbie...just giving up on taking it to school. We have been talking about it with her teacher for a while, since she won't be able to take it to Kindergarten. We figured now would be the best time to start practicing leaving it at home. Her teacher said she didn't even mention it one time...not even at nap time. I am so proud of her!

HUGE news number 2:

I had an ultrasound Monday and we found out that it is a BOY!!! Well at least 75% a boy...which is good enough for me. I never had that high of odds with Grayce. They would always only tell me 50%. LOL duh, 50/50 odds...that is not great! We still bought pink with her and were lucky enough that she did indeed come out a girl. I have not yet bought anything blue, but I am sure it will only be a matter of time. I actually have not been to a store yet, so that is probably why. Grayce is very excited. The entire time she kept saying "I want it to be a girl", so I was not sure how she would feel. We really tried to play it up to her that she is going to be so special now that she will be the only girl (remember she has two half brothers). She is totally down with being the only princess and not having to share her girl things now. LOL! Eric and I are totally excited too. We did get it on video but it is so long and not compatible with the software used on here so I can't post it. :0(

Well that is the news for the day. Hope you all are doing great!

Hello, Baby!

I had an ultrasound today to determine how far a long I really am since we could not hear the heart beat last week at my regular appointment. I am officially 10 weeks and 6 days. They didn't change my due date though since it was only three days more than we thought. is the little love.

Maternity Clothes and Other Things

Wow! I have been a REALLY bad blogger lately! I really need to be better on keeping this updated.

I have not been feeling great for the past couple of days. I have AWFUL heart burn! I had it with Grayce as well and figured it would only be a matter of time before it popped up this time as well. I can't say that I have been eating the best foods for me though either so that could have something to do with it. I have gotten in to munching. Not good! I had a little melt down the other day because of my weight. I can't remember if I have mentioned it before but I am thirty pounds more starting off this time than I was with Grayce...UGH!!! I hate even typing that. Well we don't have any mirrors in our house that show below the chest area...actually the only mirror that we have is the one above the bathroom sink. I actually never even realized that fact until this weekend. We "MaRose Sat" this weekend since my mom and dad were out of town. Well my mom and dad have mirrors EVERY WHERE it seems. Every time I turned around there was my large-ness staring me in the face! Well after two days of having to see what I have become I came home and lost it! I think Eric must have thought I was crazy! But he was and always is very supportive. Needless to say this is going to be very hard for me. I gained over 90 pounds with Grayce...yeah you read that right...90!!! I DON'T want that to happen again especially since I am already up 30! UGH!!! The weight game...not a fun one. The hormones don't make it any better.

So a girl my mom works with gave me a huge tub of maternity clothes and I am pretty sure I am set on clothes now. I won't really need to buy anything. This is one of the shirts that she gave me that I just love. It looks really cute with my already showing little baby bump (Yeah...I show the second I find out...did with G too).

Isn't that adorable!

The next two are shirts that I ordered off of Cafe

My attempt at letting people know that I am indeed expecting and not just fat. LOL!

Cute and simple.

Hi everyone! Thank you all so much for the well wishes with the new baby. I am feeling really tired still and a little sick this morning. Still have not actually thrown up but have still been feeling sick. I am not sure if it is the vitamins or what but something leaves a horrible taste in my mouth ALL THE TIME, as well as makes me feel like I have something stuck in the back of my throat ALL THE TIME! It is really annoying. I think I may ask the doctor to switch my vitamins to a different kind (I had to have them do that with G too) and see if that helps.

This has been a crazy week. We got hit with a HUGE ice/snow storm and were off work for two of those days happened to be my birthday! What a great gift that was. Nothing better than a day off and getting paid for it (and not being charged with leave). Grayce only went to school two days this week...Monday and Friday. I think she was ready to get back to school and see her friends by Friday. She was an angel all week for me though and that I was very thankful for since I have not been feeling so hot.

Here are some pics from the past week...

And baby makes...

Yep. You read that right. We are expecting a baby! I am five weeks, and from what the doctor said we can expect to meet our little bundle of joy around September 25th. Grayce and Eric are both so excited! As am I! Grayce is more concerned with what we are going to name the baby than anything else. I am feeling alright. I am VERY tired and VERY moody...two things I don't remember being last time. My stomach has been upset a few times but I have yet to actually get sick (I never got sick one time with Grayce). Grayce calls the baby chipmunk...she says she will call it that until she knows what it is and what the name will be. I really don't care either way if it is a boy or girl, as long as it is healthy. I have gotten rid of all but the crib and the changing table (at least I think that is still in my parents attic) so I will have to start over as far as clothes. My friend Rachel is giving me a swing and a car seat from her little girl who will be one next month. My other friend Trienel has a crib and some other things from her little boy which will work out great since my mom wants to have a crib at their house. Well I guess now I will have something definite to blog about for the next nine months. :0)

If you are interested in helping out please email me ( and I will give you the address. Thanks, fellow bloggers!

Hello out there!

Hello out there to all of my cyber friends. I hope you are all doing well. Things are good here. My diet is um, well, not going so good. I mean its not horrible, but its not great. I don't own a scale so I can't say if I have lost weight or not. I feel like my pants are not as tight but who knows. I have not had a soda since the 1st of the year, which is really good for me because I had become a pop-a-holic!

Grayce is doing great! Her teacher sent a worksheet home last night for us to do with Grayce. It was optional, but it is to basically see if she is on track with where she should be or if there are certain things she needs to work on. Well there were about 30 or so question/activities for us to do with her on this worksheet and she aced it! She nailed every single one! They were EASY for her and she seemed bored. A few examples. Can your child count to 15? HELLO...she can count to 100. Then there was one that asked us to write her name and then have her copy it. Well Grayce has been able to write her own name for about two years now...just recently learned to write her last name as well. The very last question was to us. Is there anything about your child's learning that worries you? My answer: Yes, I am afraid she will be bored when she goes to Kindergarten next year. Her teacher told me today that Grayce was ready for Kindergarten months ago. I am not sure where she gets her "smarts" from but I have to say it made me very proud to be her mommy. Right now she is in her room scrap booking...yes she is scrap booking. She LOVES projects. Any kind! When I made my own Christmas cards, she was right there with me. She is very creative!

We are looking to move in the beginning of March. We were going to buy a house, but have decided that renting another year would most likely be our best bet. I hope to be able to find a house to rent though as apposed to another apartment. If we have to take another apartment then that is fine, but I would prefer a house. I want a yard. I think we are 99% sure we are going to move to the town where my folks live. It is only the town over from where we are now...about five minutes. So it won't be a huge move, but a move nonetheless. I am not looking forward to moving us off of this third floor apartment for sure! That is going to be awful...but not as awful as moving in I am guessing. Going down HAS to be better than going up!

Well that is what is going on with us...nothing too exciting! But I will leave you with some cuteness! This is a picture from Halloween that my mom's neighbor took (but we just got to see it last week). It is one of my new faves! Her eyes just capture me in this picture (although it seems to have lost the luster when online). She got her daddy's eyes that is for sure!
