Triple Sunday School Baby Shower

Our Sunday School class at church is about to hit a growth spurt, because there will be 3 new babies joining us very soon! Several of the ladies in the class put together a Baby Brunch for all us ladies to get together and celebrate the soon arrival of the 3 little blessings. It was so beautiful and our class is so giving!! Here are a few pictures from the Brunch.

Pregnancy cravings means putting on the pounds...

At my last doctors appointment I stepped on to the scale thinking I would have gained maybe another pound or two! From the beginning of my pregnancy to the halfway mark I gained a total of 7 pounds. Then in the last 4 weeks I gained 6 more pounds!! The doctor said I need the extra weight since I am so small.
Want in on my weight gain secret... I have been craving Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls!
I was eating a box a day, yes that is right: 1 box everyday!
So, this month I decided to cut back to maybe 1-2 boxes a week!!

Harrison's new haircut

We are a very conservative family in all aspects, except when it comes to hair styles! I have always like to color my hair different colors and have different cuts. Many times I will do something crazy just to see how people respond! Jason always likes the different ways I fix my hair and to him the more colors at one time the better! So when it was time to give Harrison a haircut Jason and I like his hair cut short (mostly because it stands straight up on his head) and wanted it that way, but Harrison wanted it long. So we came to a compromise ...
and gave my sweet boy a MOHAWK!

I started as a joke, but then I though he just looked so cute with it that I decided to leave it! I will probably end up shaving it off, but I thought it would be fun to see people's reactions! We must be the craziest parents in the world giving their 4 year old son a mohawk, but hey we like to have fun!!
Harrison wanted me to give his Daddy a mohawk too, so just for a picture we spike up Jason's hair! Don't they look so tough!!

And of course I can not leave out my cute little girls!! Harper just did not understand why she could not have a mohawk like her brother.

Watch Bowen Grow...

My older sister, Angie, said she needed to see some updated belly pictures!
So, here you go weeks 18-22 of my Pregnancy.
Everything is going so well! I could not have asked for an easier pregnancy (so far)! The kids are so excited and like to talk to Bowen anytime they are standing close to me. Harrison likes to tell everyone that he is getting a baby brother, but already wants to know when he will be 4 years old like him! Mary Elizabeth just wants to buy him every baby item we see! And Harper is telling everyone that he is coming tomorrow!
This is a very exciting time for everyone and many days I feel overjoyed with how God is giving us another miracle child!

Bowen Henry

Meet Bowen Henry, due in just 19 more weeks...

I have been meaning to scan this picture and post, but we have been very busy.

We had the ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and found out we are having a boy. It was a very exciting time for our family and an experience that will be in my mind forever! Harrison was very excited when the nurse told him he was getting a brother! He was smiling from ear to ear and the first thing he said was, "Yes! We can get bunk beds!". Harper was just so excited it was a baby she did not care if it was a boy or girl. Mary Elizabeth started crying right there in the ultrasound room! She thought that if it was a boy he would come out walking and playing with Harrison and she would not have anything to baby! So, after I convinced her that he would still be very small and he would need a big sister to help him she was OK. Bowen Henry is named after great-grandfathers on both my and Jason's side of the family.

I have done really well with not buying baby things, until now! It is very hard not to buy the cute little bitty clothes that I never got to buy with my other three. The kids are worse than me! They want to buy him everything, the girls even want to buy him PINK!

Jason said he feels the same as he did when we got our referrals for the kids. We have a picture (or somewhat one), a name, and are preparing for a child so lets go get him (or in this case for the 19 weeks to hurry up and pass)!

We can hardly wait to be able to hold our baby Bowen in our arms, and I have found that it is the exact same feeling no matter if you carry them in your belly or in your heart!
