Introducing Maylen Joyce! She was welcomed unto the world on November 14, 2014 at 2:34am. She weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces and was 20 inches long. She is absolutely loved by her two older sisters.
Family and friends have been informed!! I wanted to make it official with my blog!! I haven’t been on in forever!
We are officially having baby number 3!
Due the end of November of this year!
I am 17 weeks now! Soon we will find out the sex of the baby. We are hoping for healthy always! Boy or girl!?
Here are few wives tales that say boy or girl:
Morning sickness- Not really (boy)
Cravings- Salty (boy)
Babys Heartrate- 155bpm (girl)
Carrying- Round and high (girl)
Acne- Lots (girl)
Chinese Gender Chart- Says girl
Either way it will be fabulous!!
This past weekend was Easter! It was a great day! It was a simple easy day with baskets, egg hunt in the living room and relaxing until dinner time. We went to Tony’s parents for dinner and the girls definitely enjoyed spending time with their grandparents.
I saw in the newspaper that rummage sales are starting and I am super excited! I absolutely love good rummage sales and hope to hit many this summer.
Today, was in the 60s which is way above what it has been since “spring” has started. I am very thankful because the girls are getting cabin fever from being cooped up all day! I have to admit I am too! We did get to enjoy this morning before the rain hit. We ate lunch out there and played on the porch.
Thinking about summer! I am pumped to get the camper all cleaned and ready to go! Camping season is coming up quickly and I want to make sure we have all that we need done and for it!! My parents were wonderful and got the girls each their own backpacks that have camping “necessities”.
Oh how I love spring and summer! So many great activities! What is your favorite thing to do in spring or summer? I would love some more great ideas!
In 3 days, my sweet girl Lyla will be 5 years old. Not in a million years did I feel like we would be here. 5! I can still remember the first time Tony felt her kick in my belly. When she crawled across the floor and took her first step.
It’s incredible how much they change in front of your eyes! She is so smart, caring, and loving. Her passion for animals at her age is remarkable. She always tells me she is going to be a vet. She will be successful in whatever she chooses to do when she gets older.
Just a little questionnaire for my Lyla:
Favorite color: All the colors
Favorite food: broccoli
Favorite holiday: my birthday
What do you want to be when you grow up?: veterinarian
Favorite stuffed animal: a little doggy
Favorite thing to do during the day: draw
Favorite animal: snake (thanks uncle Danny)
Favorite season: summer
Happy birthday my sweet girl! You’ve turned into such a lovable girl.
Last July we had someone from our local birth to three program come to evaluate Ten on her speech and motor skills. We were to wait a month and see if there was any improvement. Well, we saw an improvement and decided not to go further in the program. It is now 8 months later and we had her checked out again.
The appointment went well and I feel we are really going to see an improvement with Ten’s speech. Today, we mainly discussed what we see in her speech daily and how many words she speaks and how she communicates her needs. The teacher that was assigned to us was absolutely phenomenal. Ten warmed up to her right away. The next appointment will be in two weeks which the speech therapist will come with the teacher. They will assess her and hopefully then we will find out if she is accepted for the program.
Super thankful for this wonderful program.
Today, I decided I would do a little research on domain names and hosting. Over the past year I have been on and off on the idea of spending money to make my blog official. I have been nervous about not keeping up with it and then really it being a waste. I have gone over and over with who to host: Bluehost, godaddy and now today 1&1. It’s about 3-5 dollars monthly. Not bad but if I don’t keep up with it, what is the point?! Well, it makes me happy. I love writing and if you know me talking. I definitely have a lot to talk about.
I made the mistake of falling in love with Wiscomom and it’s name and never really searched it much before. Well, it’s a step you must take if you decide to take the leap. To my surprise someone made wisco-mom their domain name. Oh how my heart sunk. It’s my own fault that I didn’t take the leap a year ago, but it still stings. Wiscomom will always be apart of me I think. It’s how I started.
So, here’s to a new name and a fresh start! Now to think of new name for my blog! That’s a tough thing to do! I’ve been going over some ideas and can’t wait to pick one!
I do want to thank you all for following me over the last 3 years. I hope that you can all follow me onto my next journey!
We haven’t started continents yet but I am stoked! These outfits were made by my wonderful mother. She has been such a great help with all of our homeschooling. Printing, making lap books or creating outfits; she goes above and beyond! I cannot thank her enough!
When we do the actual continent I will definitely post new pictures with her playing. Here is a little preview of the outfits while grandma was fitting them on her!
