And the tie goes to........

So sorry to keep y'all waiting!  (Thanks for the comments and emails, checking on me!)  It's just chaos when you have a baby (and family in town to help, and 2 big kids!)  :)  So, last Tues, our little Tiebreaker was born.  And the tie goes to.......


Here she is yesterday, 1 week old, showing off her dimple!... in a cute outfit from her most frequent visitor (my brother's girlfriend!) and on a blanket that one of my dearest friends made.  So sweet!

I'll be back soon with TONS of info about her birth day, how Sissy and Gman are coping, (how I am coping!), what we should call her on the blog, etc.  I promise!  But right now, I have THE best in town to help and I'm spending my time sleeping and visiting with her - more computer time next wk!

Texas Bluebonnets

Wow.... by this time tomorrow, my belly won't be *quite* this big - I'll have traded it in for some sweet, squishy newborn goodness.  By this time tomorrow.  WOW.

My amazing is about an hour away, as we speak.  (She even called to see if she could pick me up a little Sonic happy hour - she's the best!)  And all that's left to do is some laundry and repack that hospital bag.  (We had a rough night last Thurs, in which a chaotic hospital bag was assembled - time to make sure I don't - gasp! - get to the hospital without my favorite mascara or something!)

So in the meantime, a peek into Spring in Texas with my fav... Bluebonnets!

Big Sis and the!!

Can you tell that she loves the camera? ;)

My friend Tracy, mom of MULTIPLE boys, noticed the truck in G-man's hand right away.  See, after 2 years of 'bluebonnets & boo hoos!' we finally learned.  Entertainment is key. 

In fact, take a quick trip down memory lane with me... Here's 2010.  Sissy did pretty well, G-man wanted to be held.

And in 2009?  Yeah... we got lots of pics that looked like this.  NOT funny at the time, but hilarious now!  (And I can't believe how much they've both grown up!  Sniff, sniff!)

Hope that wherever YOU are, Spring has found you!  Wishing you lots of sunshine and a blessed holy week!


Life's a Beach

3 days and counting!

So much has happened that I don't know where to start!  So, I'll start with an update on #3.  We'll be meeting him or her on Tues, April 19.  While I'm excited that we've gotten to move the date up (I've been miserable, I've had contractions like nothing else, and I'm READY!), it's a tough day for Oklahomans like me and mr. fix-it.  Tuesday will be the 16th anniversary of the OKC Bombing, a date that we both rememeber with more clarity than yesterday. 

But we're anxious to add happiness to that day and meet the newest member of our family!  More to come, as I fill you in on how my world has turned upside down in the last 3 wks.
