New pics of Cheyanne and Diesel



Cheyanne is keeping busy lately by being a good big sister, and Diesel is shown here with his new boots! He loves his new John Deere boots, and wears them every day, all day!

New pics!





New pics of Miss Adalyn






Adalyn is doing great! She was 7 pounds, 8 ounces on her two week birthday. She is sleeping all night still (I have to wake her to make her eat!) She is very content and smiles soooo much! She smiles more than any baby I have ever had! She is growing fast!

More amazing pics of our new addition......




These are the gorgeous flowers that my children picked out and brought to me in the hospital!!!!

Coming home from the hospital



I was released from the hospital 24 hours after she was born. The docs said we were both doing great. I lost 10 pounds in those 24 hours.....and I am officially back to my pre-pregnancy weight 72 hours later!!!!! We are just truly blessed that we have a healthy, beautiful baby! We settled in well and Addie is nursing like a pro. She slept 9 hours straight the first night home! (I haven't let her do that since!)

Cheyanne's first time on the pullin' tractor

Shawn had to modify the tractor quite a bit to get the girl on there! The foot pedal is now up on the column instead of down where it is supposed to be, and they had to put a ton of weights on it for her to make the class weight limit!
She was so excited, though! At first, she was scared of the noise, so she held her ears UNDER her ear muffs! Then, as soon as she realized that she had complete control, she grabbed the wheel, stomped on the gas a couple of times, and she was off! Now, we can't get her off the thing! She keeps wanting to go faster, but we keep having to explain that it is not a fast tractor, just a powerful one! She already calls it 'her' tractor, and Uncle Tom is not complaining (yet)! video

Cheyanne practicing for the garden tractor pulls

This was Cheyanne's first day on Uncle Tom's tractor....she had a blast! video

"Will it fit her, Mommy?"


Cheyanne was helping me pack baby's hospital bag and do some of her laundry when she hesitated, stared at the outfit, then my belly, and said, "Will it fit her, Mommy?" I had to go get the camera and have her act it out again for a picture! It was so cute :)

On my due date



Uggghhhh...yes, my swim suit is officially outgrown. I am growing impatient as I wait for baby to arrive. I think it is mostly because I am ready....house clean, laundry done, bills paid, etc. I still am at a 12 pound weight gain total. Have not gained a pound since 23 weeks. My stretch marks are growing, though! Chey took these pics, by the way. She loves taking pictures of her baby sissy :)
