Ainsley's birthday

Well, today my baby turned 6. I cannot believe she has been in my life for 6 years! She is an amazing child. The sweetest big sister one could ever hope for. She has had a big year, kindergarten, learning to read, cheering, learning to ride a scooter and bike, and so many other milestones that this year has brought. I have seen he deal with the loss of her brother and the excitement of a new sister.
Today, her big birthday present was her own room. She has wanted this for awhile now and I hope she enjoys it. I look forward to what this next year will bring this beautiful little girl. It is a joy to be her mom.

busy week if i ccan get up!

VBS is going on this week. And no, I am not one of those amazing moms that volunteer to teach a class. We do not attend the church that puts this one on but we used to and I could help out if I felt the desire (which I have no had that feeling yet!) So I have the mornings to myself - woo hoo! Yesterday, I got home and sat down to a nice cup of coffee and Wade called and asked me to go get something for him. When I got done I no longer had the motivation to go home and unpack. Yes, we have lived here over a month and I was mostly done but we finally got our thing out of storage! So I am looking around my downstairs and seeing all these boxes feeling a little overwhelmed with all that I need to get done. We walked to the church because it is just downtown and there is no need (except for the AC!) to drive. Now I am just trying to cool off before getting to business. I hope to have a productive day!

baby update

My (big) little girl is growing well. I have yet to gain a pound - woo hoo! She checked me today because I told her about some pains i have been having. She said she is high like she should be but my cervix is very soft so I have to be careful and not overdo anything. I do have a question though, I have never produced much breast milk. I do believe in breastfeeding and have done the best that I can but have had to supplement with my girls. I breastfed on demand and pumped in between to try and get my supply up to no avail. The one medicine the doctors have put me on in the past is now linked with severe liver damage ( nice, i know!) I have tried a natural supplement that makes you smell like maple syrup when you get enough in your system and I will use that again if I need to but I was wondering if anyone out there has had this problem and what they have one about it.

The next best thing

So I don't have central air in my new house and I'm six months pregnant and it's June. But what do I have? A 4 year old who loves to help and will go steal the fan from her daddy's office, plug it in and put it 5 ft in front of me! Ahhh much better! Now if I could just get her to feed me grapes!

I realized I had not posted about our camping trip last weekend. It was fun, and coming from someone who is not a camper that is saying alot! There were about 35 people from church that went. We had community breakfast and dinner and lunch was however we wanted. We took the girls scooters but they didn't use them much, they borrowed bikes from other kids and rode and played from the time they woke up until it was dark. The girls had so much fun. It did rain on Sunday but not just a little rain - it poured! We were about to have dinner when the sky just opened up! I was in my tent and the girls and some of their friends were in theirs. I don't know where Wade ended up but we made it through. And probably the best part for me was that Wade decided we should get a pop up camper! I told him I wouldn't mind camping more often if I didn't have to sleep in a tent, so we are looking for an inexpensive, used one - woo hoo! I am oing to try and upload some pics of the trip now - we will see!
