Our baby girl has finally made her debut! We are so excited that she is here and ready to begin all the joys of having a baby. She was born at 8:43 p.m. and weighed 6 pounds and 6 ounces and was 18 inches long. She has a beautiful head full of dark hair. We think she has a great mixture of both of our features!! Here are a few pics...

I cannot totally go into what I mean by the title but take it as literal as you can. I have a friend...that is what your supposed to say when you want people to think you are talking about someone else but you are really talking about yourself right...well my friend constantly is doing things the right way. I mean honest and fair. But let me just tell you my friend cannot catch a break. Things are always coming back and biting my friend in the rear. I guess it's just not fair. I know, I know life isn't fair. But why live your life honestly and the "right" way if you are always going to get hell in return. I am not sure it is worth it. So much for happy-go-lucky posts and life is wonderfully great...becuase, honestly, it is not always wonderfully great. Sometimes life just sucks even when you are doing things the way your supposed to.

Longest Post Ever to Follow...

Yeah, yeah it has been a while. Apparently, time flies when you are expecting a baby!! Either my creative writing skills have been on pause for the time being or I have been so busy that writing in my blog has been out of the question. I will go with the latter. Therefore, I feel you deserve the longest post ever!!! You can thank me later.
And at this point, I don't know where to start. I guess I will start with the most obvious. I am 38 weeks pregnant and yes I am still pregnant. I went to the doctor today and have made nearly no progress in 3 visits. I have been dilated to 1 and 25% effaced for 3 weeks now. My doctor is wanting to "strip my membranes" if nothing happens by next week. Yeah, you don't have to tell me, it sounds scary. But we are as ready as we can be. We have everything we need and then some (except for a baby). We are just waiting on God to let Presley know it is time to make her debut. Here are some pics of her room...complete with lady bugs.
Let's see next on the line up is Triston. He has had a plethera of things to tell about. We had a meeting with his baseball team last week and we are pretty pumped about this year. He is on the Tigers team this year. He also had a stomach bug last week which was no fun, however; I heard of others who had it worse than he did. It is just never fun to care for the sickly. He had a blast making his Valetine's Day box for school. His creative juices were flowing. I got a few quick shots of can see the determination in his eyes.

This, well this is my other child who went out playing on his four wheeler and came home a muddy mess...

Lastly, today our pitiful four legged family member came home with a bloody ear. He had a couple of bites out of his ear and one on his head. He was very lethargic but was not too whiny. He is tough!! But protective Daddy had to go down the road to find the culprit. I am not sure how that turned out. But we got him cleaned up and are hoping for full recovery! Also, hoping to not have to take him to the vet as they will cost us a fortune! It was more difficult trying to get pictures of his ear as he would not sit still but I tried.
