Through a friend, I came up with the idea to make a blog about my life by taking a picture every single day for 365 days. I'm only on day 10, but it has already been so much fun and I have been looking forward to it everyday (so far...we'll see how I feel on day 100). I am mostly doing this as a journal for me and my family, so that we'll have something to look back on from 2009. Ideally, I would have started this on January 1, 2009, but a few weeks later really won't matter will it??? Anyway, feel free to check it out...http://www.apple365day.blogspot.com/

Lately I have been dreading this time of year, the late winter and early spring. I can Honestly say that I hate it. Last year I was barely pregnant at this time which means I was very very sick. On top of that I got the flu which made for a long winter/spring. So, why is it that memories of clothes you wore, smells, foods, season, even TV shows can cause you to hate them because you were so miserably sick with morning sickness??? Today my feelings increased and confirmed that I really am having a hard time with this. I woke up so incredibly sick and spent most of my morning in the bathroom. I feel so bad for Oliver. He hasn't been getting much play time today. I never knew how hard it would be to be sick and have to take care of a baby while your so miserable. So for now, lets just hope that I can keep the Gatorade, sprite and pretzels down and pray that someday my hatred for this time of year will pass...

Yesterday was Phias (AKA Sophia or Sophie) 32nd birthday. To celebrate we went out to dinner as a family at Texas Road house...one of our personal favorites and then today we continued the celebrations with some birthday cake.
Blowing out the birthday candles...as always, the little ones wanting to help.
Ready and waiting to gorge ourselves.
*She has such a big heart and so much love for other people. Sometimes it has caused her some heart break, but she never thinks twice about helping someone out or being there for friends and especially family.
*She has an amazing relationship with our parents. I think she could honestly say that her parents are her best friends.
And finally...The birthday cheer!

Today Oliver turned 4 months! Being able to stay home with him everyday and watch him grow has been such an amazing experience. We love this boy so much and feel that we are so incredibly lucky to have him as our son. He truly has blessed our lives immensely and we can't imagine what we would be doing without him here at this moment. He is so much fun to watch and be with and has colossal amounts of personality. Here are some of the things we have grown to love about our sweet baby Oliver.
* He loves it when we sing to him and dance with him. Right now his favorite song to dance to is "Put a ring on it" by Byonce. When he first heard this song he started smiling, so I stood him up on my lap and started dancing with him. That was the first time actually laughed...maybe he was laughing at me making a fool of myself..who knows???
*He is an awesome sleeper!
