New Addition :)

Its official...we are pregnant AGAIN!! I am super excited! I just feel bad because I totally dont know how to calculate when the baby is concieved and its my 3rd! HA! I guess I will never know now right :) I went to the dr at the beginning of January thinking I was about 10-12 weeks. YEA! I was wrong. But a good wrong :) I was only 8 weeks! Well 8 weeks 5 days. It was great!! I got an ultrasound to find out the exact due date and its August 15th 2009! But we are more than likely going to get induced that first week of August. Havent set the exact date of induction yet though. Yes I am one of those ladies that has to have it scheduled. Before I wanted it scheduled because I was scared to death to go into labor and no one being there and also because I REFUSE to go over my due date and I didnt want just any doctor. I WANTED MINE! But now of course I am still scared to go in to labor but if its scheduled Colin will be there. He works a lot right now and I would DIE if he missed it! So we will be doing another induction :) It makes me feel better to know exactly when the baby should be here! (Hopefully) So we have our last addition getting here towards the end of the summer. We are both super excited to have our family complete. Especially me since I did want them all close together but since we got pregnant with the other two so soon we knew we had to wait a little while! HA! So now its here. And the best part is that I have tons of friends that are due right around the same time as I am! And my good friends just had their babies. So I told Colin with all these babies around that I am glad I am pregnant because I would have baby fever bad! ha! We will find out in either the end of March beginning of April as to what the sex of the baby is. THINK BLUE! Although I think the odds are against us! But whatever the sex is I dont mind! I am still not sure which I want! HA! A boy because of Colin...but a girl because we have EVERYTHING. So who knows :) We will see!

Here are my stats!
I will be 11 weeks tomorrow
And on 1/8 the baby was 2.5 cm (rylee kept saying that it looked like a peanut so now Rylee calls the baby Peanut!)
Heart Rate was 171 And everything looked great!
I will try to keep everyone posted as we head to the dcotor :)

Its been a while...

It has been a while since I have posted anything and LOTS has happened. We had another Christmas go by and another year. I still cant believe its already 2009. 2008 was great! There were some downs but most of all it was the most fun yet! We had a lot happen in '08! Here is just what I can think of!!!
Colin graduated from LSU in Petroleum Engineering in just 4 short years! (Takes most 5 plus years)
I made a lot of life long friends!
We all moved to Lafayette
We got Married
Went to Disney World
Madison started school
Rylee fell off her bed and lost her tooth! HA!
Colin started his job at Pathfinder! (Well its now Smith)
My car completly died! (well it just to happen to be the air conditioner seized up and that made it not be able to start but it still left me and the girls stranded at the mall!)
and I know there is just so much more but of course my mommy brain cant think of them! HA!
We have had a lot of downs also but of course I dnot like to dwell on the not so great so I will stick with all the fun things we have started!!

Christmas was GREAT this year. I think it was the best one yet since Madison is really starting to get it now! The girls got their very own car this year. Its a purple corvette! And boy do they love it! They of course got tons more but if you ask them what they got they of course only say Princess Scooters (from my parents), a Purple Car, and a HUGE bike that goes on the TV (Its a smart Cycle from Colins parents) We had a busy Christmas. We had to drive back and forth from Lafayette to Baton Rouge, Denham and Gonzales for a week. Yep that is right. Everyday for a week we were back and forth. We were exhausted to say the least! thank goodness my dad let us use his car since my car was dead. I dont think we would have been able to manage with just Colins truck!
For New Years Eve we actually went somewhere and let the girls stay up until Midnight. It helped that I pushed their nap back until like 4!! HA! But of course they were all up bright and early on New Years day! We went pop fireworks at one of Colins friends house from work! We had a blast. EVEN ALEXA! I met lots of new people and had a great time! Made me like Lafayette a little more.
But now it is time for 2009. A new Year and a new beginning. We also have another big year ahead of us! We get to get our VERY FIRST HOUSE! WAHOO!!!!! Trust me I CAN NOT WAIT! HA! Being in a 2 bedroom apartment with 1 bathroom has been hectic to say the least! I am greatful because we are on our own but oh so ready to get a house with some room. Colin and I have still been debating whether or not we want to live in Baton Rouge. To tell you the truth I love love love Lafayette. Its so different. Not so busy and more laid back! But of course my family and all our friends are in Baton Rouge. So what to do? I guess we will know for sure soon!

Colin is about to leave again for another job. He will be in Arkansas again. Which he is pretty happy about. I think he likes the rig out there. But this just means he will be gone for about 2 months give or take a week. THAT IS A REALLY LONG TIME! But we are getting used to it more and more now! So it wont be so bad! At least it helps up with a down payment on a house and maybe a new SUV for me (Can we say SURBURBAN!!! HA! But I am sure it will be a while before we get it :(....oh well)

Well, this is enough for now, I will post some pictures later. Too tired right now! HA!
