It has been raining off and on for like a week. That NEVER happens here. The other day Holden woke up, saw the rain, and said, "Oh no, now we can't go to school!" She had never gone to school in the rain before, snow and ice yes, but not rain. She is not a fan, but Everett is in love with the rain and splashing in the puddles, no matter how chilly it may be.
And I just had to share two more sweet photos of Lily!
Lillian is head up and just so wedged in there she can't seem to flip around. Despite the 37 tricks, exercises, and old wives tales Courtney and Mike have tried to get her to move.
So, a scheduled c-section it is. Sounds like little Holden all over, I wonder if Lily will be as stubborn as Miss H?
This little lady will be entering our world the same day her brothers left it one year ago. It is bittersweet, but will always give her a special connection to the twins Courtney and Mike lost one year ago. Her guardian angels will always be watching over their little sister and protecting her.
Mother's Day will be crazy as these two expectant parents usher in family and friends anxiously awaiting Baby Lillian. Mike's parents along with Grandma and Opa will be here for the celebration and we are planning a big Mother's Day picnic at Mike and Courtney's to celebrate and anticipate their big day on Monday.
We are just twiddling our thumbs and counting the minutes till we all get to meet this precious baby, smother her with love, and spoil her rotten.
In the brilliant words of my son, Everett (the scholar),
Last weekend we loaded up and headed down to Colorado Springs to spend some time with our old friends. J.T. had a party to celebrate his second birthday and we had a sleepover at Ty and Nichole's.
Emily and Holden had their second sleepover, sleeping in the same room and everything and it took about 3 hours for them to settle and finally fall asleep. The biggest obstacle was apparently Holden's thumb sucking.
Holden: "Emily keeps saying she hears squeaking and she can't sleep.
I can't hear anything though?!?!"
Emily: "It's your thumb! When you suck it it squeaks!"
Anyway, the next morning we took the crew down to the Blackforest Fire and Rescue to visit Mr. Ty at work. The kids had a blast tearing through the fire station, riding the truck, blowing the horn and flipping the sirens off and on, which I am sure all the neighbors loved.
As usual, Nichole took some very cute pictures and I will let them tell the rest of the story!
