The new family member

Here is our newest family member. We tried this beautiful girl out this weekend. She is almost 2 years old and is so docile. They had her named Sheba, but we are changing it to Zeiva (Zee-va). She is a beautiful girl and the kids adore her.

Belly Shot #1 really isn't a great picture of me, but I had been cleaning all morning and never did blow-dry my hair after the shower. But if you disregard the upper portion of this photo, you can see my belly. I feel like over the last week it has grown. I really can't suck it in anymore and after I eat, it looks like I have swallowed a watermelon. :) Everything seems to be going well. I have gotten my energy back, and my allergies have pretty much disappeared, so that makes for happier mornings. :) I am almost 18 weeks prego- which is crazy! I go in 3 weeks for the "big" ultrasound. Hopefully we can find out what it is. I have a feeling it is a girl, but my MIL thinks it is a boy. So we shall see.

Work is keeping me busy, as well as the boys baseball games. I am co-team mom this season, since the other team mom is prego as well. I enjoy it and I get a closer view of all the plays. The hardest part of that is not yelling out all the time. I am working on that. :) Work, is .....well it is work. I am trying to catch up as I got several new students in at the beg of the year, but I am getting it all done- slowly but surely. I am also trying to get all of my lesson plans done for when I am out for Maternity leave. I have to have them all ready for the sub. but other than that I have a decent group of kids and I finally have all the testing done, so we are starting on individualized/group work. All in all I am doing well, and looking forward to meeting this little one!

Riley's Day

Well, after taking a blogger hiatus (not intentional, but it was the first month of school- CRAZY times in this house), I thought I would do a few posts and make one about each kid. So I started with Riley. In the coming weeks, the boys will be featured as well has the hubs. We are hitting the ladies in this family first. :)

Riley was dressed to the hilt this day. We have made many grocery store trips with a fancied up Riley, but this day took the cake! She was posing and dancing around- and was so much fun! She is loving school and is so excited about the baby. She tells me all the time that it is a girl and we are going to name her Hiley, since it rhymes with Riley. I told her we would decide on the name after we know. She will pat on my belly and give it kisses. she is going to be such a great big sister! She is learning so much and growing up so fast! it is nuts how quickly my baby has grown. I get told all the time now that she is not a baby but a big girl.
