Gearing back up

Okay, so I've been busy? I haven't been here in a while (almost a year, actually). But, I am ready to start over! I guess the best place to start is where we are right now. Caroline is now two and very talkative, very inquisitive, and so much fun to be around. We are expecting baby number 2 on April 22 and if you believe in old wives tales (or true tales from what I hear from some), then this is a girl too. The baby's heart rate was 155 at my most recant appointment. I'll know for sure whether we're having a boy or a girl on December 3 and I'll be sure to end the suspense for everyone else then too.
Caroline is extra-excited about dressing up in her Halloween costume this year. She is a ballerina and she really looks precious. I'll post pics from the big night. We have opened a door to the world of candy though - she never knew this world existed before now (or at least in such abundance). We are now deluged with "more candy" requests at all hours. When we refuse the 7:00am call for M&M's, we get "my cookies?" in response. We have a long road ahead of us! Caroline is a strong-willed little girl who doesn't want her expectations thwarted! It really is fun watching her each day though - I can hardly believe that two years ago I had a newborn. I know it's a cliche, but Time Flies.

OMG. . . Ash, you have me laughing hysterically. Maybe because I know Caroline so well. "More candy" at 7:00am??? That is hysterical. I guess it's funnier when you can relate, huh? And who's the long-haired hippy in the beach picture? I don't recognize him. ;-) Love y'all so much!!

That is so adorable. The way I see it, Caroline is a smart girl. I'd choose Skittles at 7 am too if I could! Or Cookie Crisp, right Jeff?!?!? I'm glad you're blogging Ash, but I admit it makes me incredibly sad that you are so far away. Miss you.
