There it is....

At 18 weeks we finally got a picture of my belly.
Here he/she is:

We go back to the doctor Friday, and will make the appointment for the ultrasound then. I am hoping we will be able to go next week...but who know! I will be sure to update you when we find out, and can stop calling it an "it"

Fall Fun!

This weekend was a GREAT one!

Friday night we went to our church's Fall Festival, where Reed dressed up in his cow costume (yes the costume I made, with a little help). He had so much fun running around, getting candy and being crazy! And of course, he was the cutest cow there! :) He would even "Mooo" when asked what a cow said! I was a proud Momma all night!
I had to put a picture of his backside, because the tail was the best part!

We didn't get too many great pictures of him in his costume because he was so excited, and then my battery died - but not to fear, he will wear it again before Halloween comes and goes, and I promise to get some good pics then!!

Saturday was a great day too! My mom came in town for a little bit, and then that evening Ryan, Reed and I went to the pumpkin patch to take some pictures! It was so much fun to see Reed react to all the "balls".
Cheeeese! He crawled right over to that spot, which wasn't easy, sat down and smiled! What a ham!

I believe this was taken just before Reed tried to throw the pumpkin :)

Oh! I almost forgot...I made Reed another shirt Saturday, with the help of my creative husband

I think he liked his new shirt! :)

Thats all for now! Hope you all had as wonderful of a weekend as I did!

I wish I was crafty! Rather, I wish I could sew...But because I can't I (yet) I have learned to improvise. Today I made this shirt! I think it is SO cute! All I did was print the image onto special paper, and iron it onto the shirt! Ya!!I am hoping Reed will be able to wear it next year too -- It is a little bit big!
In addition to this fun, and quick, little project I have been working on Reed's Halloween costume. He is going to be a cow! As soon as it is finished I will put up some pictures!

Oh, and I should have some "belly" pics soon too...we have been waiting for the belly to appear..I think it is finally photographable - at 17 weeks! :)

Wishin' we were fishin'

This weekend we were fortunate enough to have a babysitter Saturday, so that Ryan and I could go fishing on the St. Marks River. Though it started out chilly, it turned into a perfect day! I caught a few little brim with the worms Ryan captured (yes, I even put the worms on the hook myself), and Ryan caught a few bass and a few brim. Sadly the bass I caught got away before he got into the boat :( Oh well! I had a great time spending the day with my husband, and can't wait till Reed is big enough to join us!

Itty Bitty Brim

Little bit bigger Brim

Good sized Bass :)

We are pregnant!! We are expecting our 2nd little one early April, making me just over 15 weeks pregnant now! We are very excited that Reed and his sibling will be so close in age, and we hope that they will be good friends growing up! As for me, I am feeling much better recently. I have a rough first trimester, but it is amazing what happens when you cross over into the second trimester! I am still extra tired, so you can pray for me and for some more energy!!

Reed is doing great! Running around, saying new things ( still not eating "real food" - I am very open to suggestions). I have so much fun taking him to the park, or just to play outside. I think if we would let him, he would play outside ALL day! Here are a few fun recent pictures of Reed:

This "Big Brother" shirt is how we made the announcement we were pregnant!

Peek - a-boo...I see you Daddy!!
