Ok, Ok, I'll update it!

I got a rare moment this morning to sit down and type for a few minutes.  I am taking a small break from The Sassy Saver to get my life back under control.  A lot has happened to make life crash down and I had to pull way back to basics to get it back to where it needs to be.

First off, I am pregnant with #3!!!  I am just over 10 weeks and already starting to show a bit.  That kind of scares me because Matthew was 10 lb when he was born and if I am showing it may mean big baby!  But we will see.  We are so excited and I should have the baby sometime the end of September, beginning of October.  I have been really sick with this one.  Worse of any kid.  so I have spent a lot of time not taking care of the house and just taking care of the kids and myself.  Matthew has done as much as he could while working 2 jobs and studying for the LSAT.  I am grateful for what he has done as it has kept the house functioning.

Braxton is now 3 1/2 and a super smart little guy.  He is starting to work on his writing and spelling.  He loves it.  He is also great at playing with Reagan.  They love each other and are best friends.  I am so grateful for that as sometimes when kids are as close in age they don't like to play with each other.  you kind of have a 50/50 chance when you have them that close, especially when they are boy and girl.

Reagan is almost 2...I can't believe that.  where did the last year go?  I am beginning to think I blinked and missed it, life got so busy.   She is a crazy one.  She loves to sing and dance and is great at both already.  She is a climber and climbs on everything including the table.  She loves bubble baths and everything girl.  She is the total opposite of me, so I've had to work hard to learn about girly things.

This last week both kids have come down with bronchitis and we have been shut inside until we could get the anti-biotics working.  It has been nice, but so boring at times.  I am so tired of TV and movies, but the kids have both had high fevers and coughing and choking fits that it is all we can do at the moment to keep them still.  They are loving it, but I think getting tired of not going outside.  It was raining when they both got sick but now the sun is out and it has been rather pretty so I know they are longing for it.  Can't wait until it done and we can go back to real life!

Here is an updated picture of each of them so you can see how much they have grown.

Matthew and I took a trip to DC the end of last year without kids.  It was nice, but we got so tired of walking around DC by the end of the trip.  So I told Matthew next kidless trip we take ( which will be in like 5 or 6 years at least) must be a cruise or something where we just sit and enjoy life and have everything done for us.  A relaxing trip.  Can't wait!

So that is kind of where we are at the moment with life.  Sorry for not updating this more for those who read it.  I hope to do it more, but am not promising anything!  That way I can't break my promises and let you all down.  Hope your all well!

omg HOW did I miss your costumes! Those are freaking adorable! Who made them? They're amazing! And boooo to being sick (all three of you). Everyone's been getting bronchitis lately. I'm pretty sure my roommate has had it for over a week. Got any feelings about what the little one's gender is? Congrats! :)
