Pictures of Collins

We got another sneak peak at Collins today. I was able to upload these - although they are not as good as the first ones it will give you guys a glimpse at our sweet boy. I had to drink 2 cups of coffee to wake him up and it has WIRED him all day - If he keeps at it he is going to bust through his house!

Baby Nation

Wow, what a baby explosion that has happened around here the last couple of weeks! Its seems everyone we know is having, has had, or is about to have a baby!! I am having so much fun getting lots of baby love!!! It is so awesome to see so many wonderful families having sweet babies. I pray that God puts a shield of protection around these little ones, and that Satan never gets to them, and I pray that God gives these parents wisdom far beyond their years of experience.

As far as us and our sweet Collins - Everything is looking good. He is measuring 3lbs 1oz - right where he should be! We got a sneak peek at him and he is so darn cute!!!! He looks just like Jack did when he was newborn.... which means Brendan has another clone!!! I cannot wait to get my hands on him - and dress him=). I have broken the bank gathering every cute outfit at all the local boutiques! We go back on Monday and maybe I will get some good pictures to post ( I can't figure out how to post the ones from this week).

Big Brother Jack is doing good. We have had kinda a rough last few days with discipline problems, but we are being consistent with our displining and seem to making ground now - whew! I still wouldn't trade him for nothing!!! Just part of growing pains!

Summer Fun

Well we had a wonderful time on our weekend away!! You would be so proud of us because we left Jack with Paw Paw!!! Jack had more fun playing at the farm with tractors and cows and everything else that comes along with farm life - not to mention he was treated like royalty. We had a great time laying out by the pool, shopping, eating, and room service!!!! I wish I had pictures- but I don't. We have been busy since we got back - the pool, mcwane center, and the zoo - not to mention lots of play dates!
Here are a few pictures from the zoo.
And Oh ya...only 9 weeks till Collins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To Florence we go!

Well after a rough day and a plea to get away Brendan made us reservations for the weekend at the Marriot Resort and Spa in Florence!!! I am so excited to get away for a break although we are still undecided about taking Jack. What is our problem????? Why do we still have difficulties leaving him?? No one else seems to have this problem - we must be nuts=). Anyways, as you have probably noticed we seem to slip away to Florence often... why you ask? Well, I went to school there and had an absolutely awesome college experience. I love the area, the food, and everything else. I love the resort mostly for the awesome room service - I do like to be pampered on occasion! Everyone I take up there falls in love with it too - Brendan included! So hopefully I will come back refreshed and rejuvinated!
