A Day to Remember

Today marks the year anniversary of my sister Jerilyn's passing. I don't know what to say except that I still miss her every day. She was a wonderful person, and the world is truly at a loss without her. But I know that she is watching over us on the other side. I love you Jerilyn and still can't believe you're gone.

Happy Father's Day

This year for father's day I decided to give Jeff a very special gift...another baby. It's true, I'm pregnant again. I realize it's unorthodox to announce a pregnancy this early, but I'm going to need a lot of help and support in the coming weeks and months. Some of you may remember my first pregnancy and how difficult it was, definitely the most challenging 9 months of my life. I suffered from horrible morning sickness, plus depression and anxiety. I literally barely made it through. But I'm convinced that this pregnancy is going to be better. I have a great support system here in Texas and an active toddler to keep me busy. I would still appreciate your phone calls end emails (just to make sure I haven't fallen asleep with my head in the toilet). Oh man, what have I gotten myself into? Just kidding. Jeff and I truly are thrilled to add another member to our family. Bring on the morning sickness, cravings, emotions, and back pain!

My Big Girl

This week Lexi made the transition to her big-girl bed. A few months ago we converted her crib to a toddler bed, but she is so tall that she was getting a little cramped in that, so I decided it was time to move her to the adult bed. Since our extra bed is a double she now has oodles of space. She loves being able to spread out with all of her books and stuffed animals. I was also excited because I was able to dissasemble her gigantic crib and store it. It is so nice to have the extra room in her bedroom. Check out the pictures of her cute new room. My next challenge will be potty training, but I think I'll give it a couple months before I try and tackle that.
