Settling In

Today marks two months that we have lived in our home here in North Texas. It seems a lot has happened in such a short time. For those of you that don't know, we found out in July that we are expecting our third little one on March 27, 2007. We are SO excited for this little arrival! I hit 13 weeks this week and will be officially in my second trimester next week. Yea! A third of the way there! The girls are excited too and they have both ordered a brother.... we'll see next month at the sonogram=)

We celebrated Aubrey's fifth birthday on September 10. We can't believe she is already 5! To celebrate, we took her iceskating and rode the carousel at the mall nearby. We then had cake and icecream just the four of us here at our home. It was a really fun day for all of us. Ella keeps asking when her birthday is now. =) Also, Aubrey started preschool a couple of weeks ago and she is really loving it. They grow up too fast!

Well, Ella is just about potty-trained which is a huge thrill for us. I need at least a few months diaper-free before a new baby comes! She is talking more and more each day and has actually become a little singer. Every now and then I'll just hear her singing to herself while she is playing with toys and it is the cutest thing. Tara moved to the Dallas area a couple of weeks ago and the girls have both loved her and Chloe's visits as you can see. Ella calls Chloe, "Koki."

Work and school are keeping Joey extremely busy. We are counting down until June which is when he will finally have his bachelors! It has taken so long with him working full-time and with the moves, but the end is finally near. We are going to party this summer!! The girls keep me busy and we are enjoying playgroup each week and going to the library.

We love our new home and neighborhood. We have very friendly neighbors nearby which has been a huge blessing. We look forward to the coming year and are happy in our new place.
