come on Max

It's getting closer and closer to time to meet Max. Ava claire is soooo super excited. She "talks" to my tummy many times thru the day and wants him to be here. I am starting to feel anxious and excited about his arrival as well. It's such an exciting time....yet scary in the same sense. Please pray for the safe delivery of our sweet baby boy. Also, please pray that Ava claire continues to be helpful and sweet to her new addition! We're only a few weeks away from the big day!!

Sweet little girl showing some att-i-tude!
Love this little girl SO much!

We have Spring Fever!!

My oh my!! We have Spring Fever SOOOO bad! Both AC and I are soooooo ready to visit the beach! She mentions it at least once a week...as do I! I have a feeling baby Max will be making his beach debut way earlier than planned! We're gonna have to head to the water soon!!! I can't wait much longer!!!

In honor of Spring fever, I posted a pic of AC from the beach last year. She was at the perfect age and loved every minute! Can't wait to take her back this year!

Big Sister is READY!!

She went with us on our tour of the hospital to see where Baby Max will be born...she is so ready! As are we! Getting excited, nervous, and anxious!! Ready for him to be here safely and healthy!! We appreciate your thoughts and prayers for a safe delivery!!

My Sweet Girl

She dresses like a princess and still loves the mud! I love how this little girl loves everything...she is as girly as it gets...yet can still hang with nature and dirt!!!

Funny quote from my sweet girl this morning as I tried to wake her up for school...she was so hard to get up...took like 10 minutes....when she finally gave up and got up...she said "you have to start putting me to bed sooner cause I'm too tired". Precious kiddo! Love her!

Building a Barrier

So...she was trying to play dollhouse...and she had her train turned on...and it goes around the room automatically...well, the train kept bumping into her and her dollhouse...so she decided to "fix the problem" as she said. So, she took all of her friends, lined them up, and had a barrier from the train! Too cute!

Date with Daddy

She LOVES her daddy!

Mommy's Sweet Girl

She still gives me hugs occastionally! :) Yes, I look huge...I'm only 5 weeks away from Max's arrival!!

She LOVES to dance!

She still loves to dance....and make up songs! I have to start doing a better job recording her! She makes up the funniest songs! Love this kiddo so much!

All About Daddy!

My little Mommy's Girl...has officially turned into a Daddy's girl!!! I knew it was ineveitable...but it's still hard sometimes! She is 100 percent all about her daddy these days! It is really sweet though! And it's really good timing for Baby Max to come along...so I guess I'll just have to try and stop being jealous! ;)

Sleeping Bag Time

When I was little...I LOVED sleeping bags! My granny would get me one each Christmas it seemed like....I remember Care Bears, My Little Pony, NKOTB, and Strawberry Shortcake (to name a few)...so I figured why not get AC started on loving them too??? She got her first one this Christmas...and LOVEs it!

She loves her robe!

The cutest little thing ever....wearing her robe. She looks so little and so sweet in her robe. She loves it! It's a struggle to get her to take it off at night! ha

Helping Daddy on Christmas Eve

Ava Claire was helping daddy put out the paper bag lanterns to help guide Santa's sleigh to our neighborhood. It is a tradition in our neighborhood to put them out on Christmas Eve....it was a beautiful sight! I highly recommend starting this tradition in your neighborhood. AC thought it was SO cool! And it looked beautiful too!

Christmas with Colton!

Ac had a blast celebrating an early Christmas with Colton. She LOVES to hold him! It is so sweet. We're so glad they've moved back to atl and we get to see them frequently!!

Big Girl Bed

She's still loving it....been in it since summer....doing great! Very easy transition...we were lucky (again)!!!

Owls are Nocturnal

Sooooo my sweet sweet girl loves school and learning. It amazes me at how much she remembers..her long term memory is definitely expanding. So much fun to watch. So her new thing is nocturnal animals. She can pretty much tell you all of them. She especially likes talking about owls and bats. Matt had to work late one night and she said "call daddy and tell him to be careful bc of the bats and owls....they are nocturnal". So here lately there is an owl that lives in our woods....everytime I hear it hoot I think of ac.....she loves to hear it too. So tonight I heard the owl and so I told ac that her owl lives in the trees by the golfcourse. That he must be a golfin owl.....to which she replies "oh mommy owls don't golf.....they just talk with their friends and hoot". Love this sweet girl and her little mind!!!

My Hero :)

It is the sweetest thing ever!! Ac has become such a daddy's girl here lately. She calls him her "hero"!!! It is the sweetest thing ever....tonight she said "I love my daddy too much". She is the sweetest little girl ever....so much love for this precious girl!!!
