Oh Boy!!

We found out today that Hayden's gonna have a baby brother to beat up on! I had been thinking for many weeks that I was having a girl because this pregnancy has been so different. About a week ago I started referring to "it" as "he" and "him" and I realized that I had changed my gut feeling. So today at our ultrasound, the doctor asked us what we thought and I said boy but Matt said girl. Once again, mothers instinct won! I honestly didn't care one way or the other, but I'm really excited now...probably more for Hayden. I just think it's going to be so neat for him to grow up with a best friend and they'll only be two years apart. We're struggling with names right now, so don't ask! ha,ha. Hayden did pick out some footed pajamas for his brother today. I layed a few different packages down and he chose the blue one...even though he said "RED." I knew what he meant:-) This is a picture of Hayden in his big brother t-shirt. It's the best shot I've gotten so far and if you can't read it, it says Big Brother: Baby's Idol, Mom's Helper, Mischief Maker

I thought that fit a 2 year old with a newborn in the house! Oh, and by the way, they poured our foundation today!!!!!

Duplex Life Forever??

Well, I said I'd post pictures of our house as things progress. If you live in the metroplex, you know how much rain we've been getting. If I hear the phrase "man, we needed this rain!" one more time, I'm gonna scream!!! Rain doesn't bother me most of the time. I mean, it is a pain to run to the car so you don't get too wet, or if you have a kid, that means no outside time. But, we do need rain. I've learned the one time in your life that you pray every day and night for no rain is when you're building a house. I just want my foundation to be poured. I feel like we've been waiting for this step for the past 3 weeks. Optimistic Matt says "that's probably the most important step in this whole process. The ground needs to be just right." That's fine, but when our sales lady says "you watch, once they pour that foundation, they get busy and get the job done!!" It's torture. I just want my foundation to be poured. Here's the pictures of what our "house" looks like. What great improvements huh?

A day at the park

Today we went with my friend Jennifer and her two boys, Jack and Hudson, and my friend Nikki and her daughter Kendall to the Grapevine Botanical Gardens. I didn't even know such a place existed, but Jennifer had been there. It was gorgeous! There were butterfly gardens, fish ponds, and a big playground. We actually spent more time walking the trails of the garden than playing on the playground! Then we loaded up the kiddos and headed to Celebrity for lunch! Yum Yum!! So, here's a few pictures of our day.

Posting, just because

I'm telling ya, my life is pretty boring right now. I'm just posting b/c I hate it when I check someone's blog everyday and they won't update! I guess I need to enjoy my boring life b/c before long it will be chaotic! I had my doctor's appt last week and he took me off the medicine that was making me sick. Woo-Hoo. I feel awesome now. We also get to find out what we're having on May 31st. This pregnancy is going by so fast. I already look like I'm about 20 weeks pregnant. ha,ha!! Matt finished his MS 150 bike ride this weekend and he did great. I just respect he and the other 3,000 riders so much for riding 150 miles in two days for such a wonderful cause. I'll post a picture of our house too. Well, you'll see it's not really a house yet! Still waiting for a dumb city permit. I'm going crazy here. Instead, I'll post a picture of our real nice lot! And, I'll throw in just a mix match of pictures....mainly b/c my posts lately haven't had a topic or point. I'll work on something exciting for my next post. Maybe I'll make up a story....stay tuned!

(Ok, I need to figure out how to post a picture with a caption underneath, like I see a lot of people do. Until I figure that out, I'll explain the pics. Matt at the MS 150, The cute Noe couple...b/c I never post pictures of us, Hayden trying on Matt's cycling helmet, Hayden "mowing" with Matt, Hayden trying so hard to do a somersault...he's been working on this!, Hayden holding ice on one of his many bumps, and our "house."
