Baby #3 Update...Name to be determined.

We found out we were pregnant with this sweet little girl 11/12/2013. I felt a little different and knew that Daniel and I started trying to get pregnant in October. It was the day I was supposed to start but I couldn't wait and took a pregnancy test upstairs in our bathroom while the girls were napping. We were supposed to meet at Lowes when Daniel got off work to pick up some stuff so I had to wait until we got home. While Adelyn was busy doing something else I put a Big Sister tshirt on Eva for her pjs and had her walk in to see Daniel in our room. He said, "oh won't she be cold in that tonight?" Not even catching on to what her shirt said. ;) I asked him to read her shirt and he caught on and was so excited!

Our first appointment with the nurse was 11/19/2013 and with Dr. Creighton 12/10/2013. We got to see her little heartbeat and received the due date! July 19!

We told Adelyn, Nana and Papa while out to eat at north hills. When I told Adelyn she looked at me and sweetly said, "is it really true?" & "now Eva will be a big sister!". She is so smart and sweet. I can't take it. We told Mimi and Grandad in Lincolton by Adelyn drawing a picture that said "big sis x 2".

We had our anatomy ultrasound on 2/17/2014 and found out we were having another GIRL! It did take me some time to process...because I have always dreamed of having a boy. But I quickly became excited about the 3 sisters. I love trying to picture what she will be like and who she will look like. We told my family but Adelyn helping me make cupcakes with blue and with pink inside (before the appointment) and then at Les Mis the night of the appointment we let them eat one to tell. This is actually how we told Adelyn and Eva too.

We are humbled by the fact that she seems to be growing well and she is constantly kicking me...maybe she will take after Eva Grace.

I have painted her room BLUE. Strange I know. But I was a little tired of all pink... so she will have pink and blue in her room. I will post pictures of her nursery when it is complete.

2014... We are back!

Well it's been over a year since we have updated this little blog. Feeling kind of frustrated about that...but at the same time we have had a lot going on. I will do a catch up here and then start fresh for 2014! Our family has ...

Celebrated Eva turning 1 & 2 and Adelyn turning 4!
Daniel and I celebrated our 6th anniversary and went on a trip this year (unlike last year) to Kiawah Island.
We got a puppy last February right around Eva's birthday. His name is Titus! There are days when I thought we made a horrible decision to be honest but when I see him with the girls we know it is a great thing. I love that little fur ball (most of the time).
Will celebrate 2 years in our new home in Wake Forest in August.
Found out our sweet Mema had ovarian cancer last summer and said goodbye to her in September. We praise the Lord for her life and that she was able to spend her last days at home with family. I miss her so bad it hurts, but we will see her again!!!
We have traveled to the Bahamas again and had many fun trips to the beach with our families. So blessed!
Joined a life class at church and have made friendships that we are so thankful for. LOVE our community group and we are thankful to the Lord for this provision.
I have still been creating jewelry on etsy. Layla Ave. I love it and it has provided for our family in small ways that I never expected.
I retired from doing princess parties recently (more on that to come) but continue to still work at Raleigh Ophthalmology on Fridays. The girls love their Fridays with Nana.
Daniel is still with FCB and recently was promoted and moved to the North Ridge location!!! Love how he has been blessed by FCB and love that he is now closer to home.
We found out in November that we are pregnant with number 3!!! Due date July 19, 2014. Girl #3!

We are so blessed by everything that has happened over the past year. There have been trials and rejoicing but we know that He is faithful to grow us and provide.

Philippians 4:19
And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Jesus Christ.

Daniel (turning 31 in September), Lauren (31, 32 weeks pregnant), Adelyn (4.5 years old), Eva (2 years old).
