I had to post this. Taylor NEVER, let me repeat, NEVER lets me put her hair up in a ponytail. Well, today she wanted one, and I have proof!

Drumroll Please.......

Much to my amazement ladies and gentlemen, we are indeed having a BOY! We had our ultrasound on Thursday and we brought Taylor. She was looking forward to seeing a picture of the baby all day long. Once the technician got some of the important pictures taken for her records she asks us if we would like to see what the baby is. My very sophisticated husband looks at the monitor and says, pretty loudly, "I see a wiener". We are very excited and I am still a bit stunned because I really thought it was going to be another girl. We are now taking any and all baby boy name suggestions. Feel free to submit.

Noah's 2nd Birthday

We just got back from a fun filled day at Noah's house where we celebrated his 2nd birthday!! We all had a lot of fun. It was entertaining to watch Noah open his presents and if Taylor got just a little too close to his new gift he would scream, "MINE". He even once whipped the wrapping paper that he just tore off his present into Taylor's face. They fight just like I imagine siblings at that age would. Beth made a wonderful John Deere cake and Brad detailed it with frosting making it look JUST like the real thing. I have since enlisted them to make all future birthday cakes for my children. Tomorrow we are having Noah over to the house to play while I go to a doctor's appointment. Taylor is highly looking forward to that! I'm just wondering how many fights I'm going to have to break up in the coarse of one day. Steve will be in California all this week, so Taylor and I have to think of some fun activities to do while he is gone. I hope to all of you who are reading that you have a wonderful week!

Taylor's New Room

Here are the long awaited pictures of Taylor's new room that we presented her with on Christmas morning. As she likes to call it, her 'second room'. She loves her pink room, but don't let that fool you. She also loves to play and watch all sports with her daddy. When she attends a sporting event with Steve she will talk about it for weeks. I've always said she'll be a girl who won't fuss when I make her wear a dress, but you better believe it's going to get dirty from playing outside with the boys.

That is her princess vanity in the background where she likes to keep all her tiaras and jewlery.
