I'm gonna be a ....

Big Sister!!!!!
How we found out.
Over Labor Day weekend, Drew and I went to the Razorback game in Fayetteville. It was the first time that we had ever left Anniston over night, so needless to say we were both hesitant. It was very spur of the moment though, which I think helped me with all the anxiety because I didn't have very long to worry about it. I hadn't felt bad at all, so I really wasn't expecting the news we were soon to get. The only really weird thing was that I was craving tacos. When I say craving, I mean it was a problem. I literally thought about tacos before I went to bed at night and they were one of the first things on my mind in the morning. What in the world?! However, that is not even the weirdest part. Anyone that knows me, knows that I do not like lettuce. I am not a lettuce eater, never have been, never will be... or so I thought. Suddenly, when day dreaming about my taco, I thought I have to have lettuce on my taco today. Very strange, but still no clue. Well about 10 tacos later (obviously over a week or so time) Drew and I both started thinking... Hmmmm could it be??? So on our way up to Fayetteville we tossed the idea around. Then after asking me what I wanted for dinner and of course... just get me a taco, with lettuce please... He really started thinking. When we got to Fayetteville, we went and hung out with all of our friends. Oh to be young again... hahaha the only thing we could think about was how old we felt Ha! Anyway on our way back to the hotel that night, we stopped by Walgreens. The next morning, I took the test. The words "Pregnant" appeared. I ran out of the bathroom to show Drew. It was such a fun and exciting moment, one that I will never forget. I can't wait to know if we are having another precious girl or a sweet little boy!

Happy Birthday Anniston Kate!

Anniston turned one on July 1. I can't believe my sweet baby girl is already a year old... I feel like time needs to slow down. We had her party on July 17th because we were in Houston on her actual birthday and then had a wedding the next weekend. We all had so much fun. Of course, Anniston loved her party... she likes to be center of attention :) I will post some pictures of her party soon.

On another note, my mom is back in the hospital. She had hernia surgery in June and now is having some complications from the surgery. I would appreciate it if anyone who reads this blog would pray for her. She has a long and hard road to recovery.

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day! We have been pretty uneventful around here! Actually, we came home from church and took a really long nap... all three of us! It was really nice. I rented The Time Travelers Wife and we are planning on watching it tonight! I know Drew is probably really excited. Well... he won't admit it to anyone else, but he usually likes watching the movies I like. Friday afternoon, Drew surprised me with the most wonderful gift!!! He got me a new camera!!! It is awesome!!!! We were eating lunch and he said "You want your gift now??" I didn't have his yet, so I told him no. Then 10 minutes later.... "I think I will go get it for you." He did... I was so happy!!!! It was such a surprise!!! I can't wait for it to get warm now so I can take Anniston outside and have all kinds of photo shoots!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day!!!!

On the Move...

Anniston Kate is almost on the move! She is scooting and rolling and scooting some more. She is also pulling up on furniture. I can't believe how big she is now! I really don't know what I am going to do when she actually starts crawling, or for that matter walking! YIKES!!! She is already so busy, I can't imagine what my house is going to look like when she is really mobile.

Anniston also is going through a phase.... lets hope its a phase where she refuses to eat! She looks at you and literally presses her lips together as tight as she can. Hopefully we will start liking food again soon!

That is really about all that is going on with us. We are pretty boring lately. Drew did get us a new computer!! We thought that our old one quit working... which it did for like 3 days. Then magically, I turned it on and it worked. However, we had already ordered the new one! Drew wanted a Mac... so thats what we have now. I am still learning how to operate this thing... it is very different from the old computer. However, I do love it!

I am really looking forward to spring! I can't wait to take Anniston to the zoo and do some things outside! My mom is going to have to have surgery in the next month or so. Please pray that the surgery is successful and that she has no complications!
