Big Brother and baby #2

                     We have officially made it to the half way mark of our pregnancy. It is such an amazing experience. I love being pregnant, and knowing there is a little life growing inside of me. Its true each pregnancy is different, but both these babies have taken pretty good care of there mommy. Luckily, this pregnancy has not been very difficult at all. The only symptom I can complain about may actually be a pre pregnancy symptom, but I would like to blame it on the pregnancy anyway. Those of you that have been pregnant or not are I'm sure familiar with the phrase "BABY BRAIN." Well I am suffering from a very serious case of it. LOL. Bryson and Rylie like to remind me of that fact almost daily. I heard the best explanation for it last week on our favorite show Modern Family. Gloria (Sofia Vergara.) is pregnant and tells Claire... "I HAVE TWO BRAINS INSIDE OF ME, BUT I HAVE NEVER FELT MORE DUMB!!!"  Thank you Modern Family you putting it into words perfectly, and now I can laugh every day about my condition because of it. Lol.

               All joking aside I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to bring another little one into our family. And yesterday after putting us (mostly Gregg.)on the edge of our seats for about a half an hour not letting us see between its legs by either curling up, hiding behind the umbilical cord, or tucking its feet up right up in front of the spot we needed to see. The baby is either shy or mischievious, and I'm going with mischievious. Anyway, we finally caught a glimpse of our healthy baby BOY! Sweet Shakobe was more concerned the whole time of what the ultra sound tech was doing to his mommy rather then what was on the big screen, but I take that as a sign that big brother is going to be very watchful over his baby brother and that makes us very proud! 

Big Brother holding on to the first photo of Little Brother!!
 "There is no Buddy like a Brother."

Side profile of little brothers face. He is trying to hide behind his arm. I know sometimes these pictures freak people out but its what I look forward to the most. Hello little buddy!!!
This picture is kind of tricky cuz he is trying to disguise himself with the umbilical cord again but this is proof its baby brother and not baby sister. Its offficial mom is going to be out numbered 3 to 1!! 


As you can tell me and Gregg dressed up as bacon and eggs. ha ha. It was the first time in years either of us dressed up and Im so happy my husband was such a good sport about it. We spent halloween night at my sisters house watching my all time favorite halloween movie Hocus Pocus.
Me and my niece and nephew on halloween night. Rylie was a "cute witch" as she would say and my nephew was Edward. The man of all our dreams. It was a fun night.
We or should I say I dressed up our kitty for halloween. He absolutely hated it but put up with it for about five minutes to make me happy.


So I had to show everyone this picture of our family on the Atlantis rollercoaster at sea world. The looks on everyones faces is priceless. Lol, especially my sisters and myself.
