We're Expecting!

We found out some exciting news on September 1st (which just happened to be our 13 year dating anniversary).

We sent this text the next day to our family....

But waited until our after our first doctor's appointment to share the news with Essie.  We bought her a "Big Sister" shirt and packaged it with a pack of pacifiers and the ultrasound picture.  She was beyond blown away and just could not believe it.  She's begged for a sibling for so many years!!!

I am currently 11 weeks...

This pregnancy has been different...I was nauseous from really early on and then super fatigued.  I would spend the entire weekend on the couch.  Of course I'm 6 years older this time around than I was with E.  But I'm happy to announce that I've been feeling a bit better week by week.  We go back to the doctor in two weeks so I'm anxious to see our lil one again! This time E will get to go with us so that will be a special treat for all of us!

Kindergarten Color Days

For the past two weeks we did a color a day at Kindergarten and kids were supposed to wear the color of the day.  Here's some snapshots of Essie's two weeks of color:

Meet and Greet before school started...she is excited to have Mr. Howse as her first teacher.

First day of School...I have loved have E at school with me each day! She is loving school and is making new friends each day.  I love seeing her at school all day.

Kindergarten Camp

A few weeks ago our school hosted Kindergarten Camp for all our new kinders.  Essie was so excited.  It was four half days and she got to rotate through every teacher's room. She got to meet new friends and I got to see her in a whole new light!  It was my first glimpse into what it was going to be like having her at school with me each day.

Safety Town

I am sooo behind on posting.  I cannot even begin to describe how crazy our summer was and how busy we were!  So I'm going to catch up the best I can now...

A few weeks before school Essie and her BFF Lexie got to attend Safety Town.  It's a program put on by our local hospital and JA.  It was three days and they learned all about bicycle, bus, train, car safety along with so many other things.  It's set up in a local church and they actually build a little town in the gym.  Essie had so much fun and they even had a little graduation ceremony on the last day!
