It's a Christmas Miracle!

Due: August 25th, 2010!

The new tests only show a vertical line now if you are pregnant, and no line at all if you are not! We had to check the box several times!

Will is going to be a big brother! I am not sure he is ready to advocate his throne as "Mommy's Baby", but he'll always be my baby anyway. We hope that in eight months he'll learn to fall asleep alone at night and learn to stay near us since we won't have extra hands once the baby comes!

We are so thrilled to be blessed with another pregnancy this year. So far, so good. I am feeling pretty good, just tired! The doctors took my blood counts the first few days of this pregnancy to ensure it was growing appropriately, and today we had the ultrasound to see the heartbeat and to date the pregnancy. We both cried when we saw the heart beating. It is such a little thing...like half a peanut. We are 6 weeks and a day as of New Year's Eve! We'll probably find out the sex of the baby when it comes time, even though we really liked the surprise from not knowing with Will. We'd miss rummage sale deals if we have a girl. We are all stocked up for a boy since Will and this baby will be only a month apart from their due dates.
Will and #2.1 will be three years and a month apart, depending on when the baby is born! We could have two August birthdays!

Christmas sneak peak!


Jordan and I starting to put our tree, of course to the traditional Clay Aiken Christmas CD. This year we also slipped Josh Groban in. He is too amazing not to! We arranged our living room differently for the first time since we moved here four years ago. We wanted our tree to be in a more prominent spot instead of in a corner where only 1/4 of the tree is visible. More pictures on that later!

Will loved to help put the branches in their places on the tree stand. He was sooo intrigued by the tree this year. He loved to walk up to it and touch it while we set it up. We found it very amusing! We were worried that meant he wouldn't be able to control himself when the whole tree is up and decorated, but so far, so good. He does target a few choice ornaments, though. More on that later, too!
Hey, it is only a sneak peak!

Falling for Will...

Will enjoyed playing in the leaves so much better this year than he did last. He liked to look at most of the leaves individually, and he liked to just plop himself down on the pile.



He REALLY liked when we threw him in the pile, but we didn't really get that good of a picture of his laughter. It was really cute, though!

My big brother came into town (November), and announced with his wife that they are expecting their first baby! We are super excited for them and "Mini Maz." I think he'll be a great Daddy. He plays so wonderfully with Will everytime he sees him. Congrats Kevin and Mary! They are due May 27th, 2010.

It was so great to have Kevin home from Arizona and also Laura home from college. I miss you guys!

Forgotten Fall pics!


Last time Jordan cut the grass, Will was quite the little helper. He helped Daddy cut the whole back yard! Just another decade and his chore will be "green and clean"! We can't wait!

Doesn't he look like such a big boy?

A conversation with a little cutie!

Tonight, Jordan was feeding Will pasta stuffed with Spinach and cheese. Half way through, Will shouted, "MEAT!"

Jordan responded, "It is wonderful you want meat tonight, but you have this to eat!"

Will declared, "NO! MEAT!"

What a memorable first conversation! I think he actually understood what we were saying and responded accordingly! We laughed for a few minutes afterward! He did get meat. And Daddy got a happy heart.
