Fall Pictures

We went to Kiddie Kandids on Saturday and got Shelby's 18 months pictures taken. I can't go get Shelby's taken with out Sydney having to have hers done to. So here are the best ones. Shelby didn't want to hold still to have her pics done. So we were lucky to get the ones we got.

Sydney 4 1/2

Shelby 18 months

I can't believe that Halloween is tomorrow. This year has gone by so fast. Only 4 more months until little boy blue comes, and we still can't agree on a name. The rest of this year is going to fly by because we have so much going on. Thanksgiving, then I head to Pheonix for a week for work. I'm taking mom with me so she can get away. I think it will be good for her. Then when we get back, I'm home for 4 days then Shaun and I head to Vegas for a week for him to team rope and to go to the NFR. The girls are so excited for us to go because they get to stay at Reagan's house for a few days and then go to Aunt Angie's. We asked Sydney if she wanted to go with us to Vegas and she said no, she wants to go to Reagan's. Everyone have a safe Halloween.

I'm a BIG GIRL Now!!

Shelby slept in a big bed last night for the first time! She slept through the whole night and when I went to get her this morning she was in the same place I left her last night. Hopefully she will sleep there tonight to. I had to lay buy her for about 15 min. until she fell asleep, but hey, if she will sleep in a big bed 15 mins of laying down with my baby is fine with me. It actually gets me to wind down to. She is also almost winged of the bottle. She only has one abut once every 3 to 4 nights. I only give her one when she asks for it at night. But she is getting more and more attached to that dang binky. Hopefully when the new baby comes she will give hers up, but I don't think it will happen and I am not ready to listen to her cry for nights and nights to break her of it. I did try to get her to throw it in the garbage the other day, but she won't.

Already getting boy stuff

Ok, so I went to Shopko yesterday to exchange one of Shelby's outfits and went to the clearance section. I ended up buy 2 summer outfits for the little guy (they were only $1.39 ea) and a 2T swimming suit for $1.99. I couldn't pass up the bargin. I am so bad, but this isn't my first, so I don't get a baby shower. I've got to buy when the price is right.

I told Shaun that in about 1 1/2 years we are going to have to sale the house and move to a bigger one or build on because 3 kids can not share that tiny room that the girls are in right now. So, if we decide to build on does anyone know of any good architects to go to for designs. I am not designing this myself, I've already gone through that and I don't want to do it again. I would rather tell somone what I want and let them come up with the ideas. I think we are leaning towards adding on for right now.

You got it, yesterday we went to have our 1/2 way ultrasound and we are having a boy. Sydney was right, she is 2 for 2. When the technician told us that it was a boy, Sydney turned to Shaun and said "See dad, I was right". She wants to name him Aiden, I am ok with it, but dad is like NO WAY. I think it would be fun to let her name him. I like Derek or Wesley (call him Wes) Shaun likes Colt (no way). So, I guess we'll see, but for sure his name is not going to be Colt. I gave in to the name Shelby, I'm not giving in this time. Plus, it is my turn to name the baby anyway.

I can't believe that I'm 1/2 way through it has gone by so fast. February is just around the corner.
