Exciting Times

McKay lost his first tooth last night!!  He let Jeff pop it out without so much as a squirm or whimper.  He was very exact when it came to tooth placement for the tooth fairy.  He tried about 3 or 4 different spots under his pillow before he found just the right one.  This morning when I woke him up and reminded him about the tooth, he sat up groggily (is that a word?) and lifted up the pillow.  It was as if someone pluggd in the Christmas tree. "A dollar!!! The tooth fairy gave me a dollar!!!!!!"  He quickly stumbled, bleary-eyed, down the hall to tell dad.  When asked what he was going to do with his dollar, he said, "save it for a DS." 

Sorry for the blur.  we were having flash trouble last night, but I love the goofy, kindergarteness of this picture. :)

A Swingin Time

Recently Sophie has learned to do this. 

She loves it!  If you can't find her take a peek out the back door and you'll find her.  She'll insist that you come outside, on the grass to watch her.  Then she'll chat with you the whole time she swings.  :)  Look at her go! (Sorry about the dog barking, but it was the cuter of the two videos.)

Nearly 17 weeks

Wow.  It's flying by now!  Sadly, my regular clothes didn't make it much past 15 weeks.  There are a couple of things I can still wear, but mostly it's maternity for me. Sniff. 

The baby has started wiggling around inside now.  The kids love giving it little pats and kisses.  I think it is already the most adored baby on the planet.  I wasn't super excited about the 4 year gap, but it's fun having the kids a bit older.  They kinda get what's going on now and are SO excited for this.  They all have their own opinion on what the name should be.  It's been fun.
