Fancy Shelby turns 3!

Most of you know that on Oct. 5th Shelby turned 3. Since last year I was SO sick I felt like Shelby deserved to have a proper celebration for this birthday so I told her she could have a party. She insisted on having a "Fancy Nancy" party which for those of you with boys it is a little girl in a bunch of books who likes to dress, act, and talk "fancy". So we had a fancy Shelby party and she was so excited! Her friends all came dressed up and we ate some pizza, opened presents (she made out like a bandit!), and had cake and Ice cream. We had 30+ people and it was a great time to hang out with tons of friends. A few facts about Shelby:

LIKES: To read books, in fact we have to go to the library at least once a week so I don't go crazy reading those books over and over. Cartoons; Dora, Go Diego Go, word world, super why, and backyardigans. Tessa (her babysitter) Coloring, taking pictures, dress up is a new favorite (which she got tons of stuff for her b-day). Olive Garden, apple juice, going to wal-mart or Target, helping mom cook, imagination games outside, baths, and so much more. Shelby finds joy in everything we do and it is so fun to watch her enthusiasiam for life, it just makes me so happy!

DISLIKES: Performing of any kind, large groups, quite time without books, Libby stealing her toys or attention of her parents, sleeping in her bed (she ALWAYS falls asleep on the floor). Doing something/anything that wasn't her idea!

HAIR: Brown
EYES: Blue
WEIGHT: 32 lbs
HEIGHT: approx. 40 inches

Shelby is such a funny little girl, she is always saying things that crack me up. She is extremely smart and has started to read quite a few words and can even spell about 10 words. She often tells me that she is frustrated because she can't remember what the pages in her books say. I love being a mom and I love the life that they bring in our home. I am so proud of my little girl and all that she does. She is starting to be such a big helper and I can't tell you how grateful I am for her help since I am so exhausted most of the time. We love you Shelby and we are so glad you are in our family! Happy Birthday.

Ready or Not....

Okay so I have been in denial for long enough and it is finally time to realize that Jon and I really are going to be having a 3rd little girl sometime at the end of Jan or beginning of Feb. I have to be honest and say that I didn't believe it when I took the pregnancy test and as a result, I ended up taking several. After MANY tests I finally accepted the facts. Then just Friday when they told me at my 21 week ultrasound that it was yet another girl, I had the same denial type feeling come over me again! At least I won't have to do much to prepare for her because we already have all the girl stuff.
All I can say is that I have to trust in the Lord with this whole situation I was pretty certain that Jon and I were either done having children (given my last Pregnancy and all it's complications); or going to wait quite a while before having another one. Now we are going to have three all 3 and under which means we will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grader when they are older! I know I love my girls so this one will not be any different, but I am really scared about have them all so close. I am grateful for my little miracle babies and I hope I can be a good mom to all of them no matter how many or how close they come.
