New Baby!!!!


Bethany will soon be a big sister!
Well, not too soon, as the little one won't make its arrival until May. But it was go quickly as the first pregnancy seemed to zip by us! Things are progressing really well. We do have an extra concern for this baby. The doctor said there is an extra blood condition that we need to be attentive to. I have some extra anti-bodies in my system that could potentially cause problems; however, the stats are in our favor & it is unlikely to cause any problems. The doctor today actually said my anti-body levels went down from last month, that is a major blessing!!!! I will continue to have monthly blood work in order to monitor my levels. If they anti-bodies increase to a dangerous level, then we will potentially need to have an amniosintisis or at the very worse the baby will need a blood transfusion. So, we would definatley appreciate any and all prayers you can throw our way.
Back on the positive...we are so excited to welcome another little Milles in our household. Sometimes it catches me off guard to think about toting around 2 kiddos around everywhere. Bethany has been such an amazing blessing that we just can't wait to meet our next little miracle!!!

Attached at the hip!


My poor Bethany has gone from being attached via an umbillical cord a short 16 months ago to attached to the hip. The past week or so she has been extremely clingy; wanting to be held or cuddled by Mommy as much as possible. How can I resist her "Mummy, Mummy, Mummy, Mummy" as she grabs my legs with all her might. It make my heart melt knowing she loves and "needs" me so much! But it is getting hard doing everyday, mundane task with a almost-toddler in tote! Poor Cory, he can't even get a hug or kiss anymore without causing her to have a nuclear meltdown.

"A--noi-ed"

Hmm...despite all the toys around me. I want something at the bottom of the toy box. But my puny arms don't have an adequate length to reach them...

NOI! NOI! NOI! NOI! NOI! NOI!




See...it is right there mommy...
NOI! NOI! NOI! NOI! NOI! NOI!


Finally, I got the farm...but it isn't making any noises. I don't possess the dexterity to turn on the sounds. I need help with the sounds.


NOI! NOI! NOI!
Finally, I get to play!


(editor's note: If you didn't quite get the moral of this story, I will explain for you! Bethany has her own little language. If she wants something---anything---she will repeatedly state, "Noi! Noi! Noi! Noi! Noi!" and point to the object of choice. It will be the only thing she says until she gets what her little heart desires. Although, she is pretty good at signing and saying "Peasssss" when prompted to say, "please!" She is just too cute!!!!)

Happy Birthday Uncle Derek!


We got to help Uncle Derek celebrate his 27th Birthday this weekend. Boy is he getting old! I really enjoyed being able to spend some time with him, his girlfriend Sarah, and Grandma & Grandpa. They are a crazy bunch!

Hoosier!


I like putting my feet on a table like the little hoosier that I am! :-)

Two Whole Weeks Already!?!

Sitting with my Elmo phone!
My first Ponytail! Finally my hair is out of my eyes!
Bethany & her Elmo balloon! We went to McDonald's Thursday night and they had a balloon guy, he made her this balloon. She recognized it immediately, "LaLa". That's what she calls Elmo do to his opening theme song on his show!

Things for us has been pretty much the same...school...papers to grade...play outside with Bethany...clean the house. Sorry we haven't posted up here more the past 2 weeks.
I'll try not to be so slackerish in the future! ;-)
