The reveal

If you guessed boy, YOU WERE RIGHT!!

Kasen William Haas will be joining us before July 14th (that's my prediction)
He was so cute, and not shy at all. This picture is great because you can tell the distinction between the umbilical cord and the boy parts. 

Definitely a BOY!

These are both of his arms. He was kind of in a fetal position in that his body was folded in half, so his arms and his legs were up by his head...  Here he is giving Mom a thumbs up!!

Here is one little foot.

And here is the best profile shot we could get, like i said he had other limbs that were getting in the way

He was measuring 12oz, which is about 20 weeks and 3 days, right on with what we had figured. So he is growing well. He looks to be a healthy baby!

Can't wait to meet our little guy!

15 Months

this is more for my records

Here are Jake's stats at 15 months::

weight: 23lbs 11oz - 38%
Height: 30 1/2'' - 30%
Head circ.: 18 1/2'' - 44%

Says "uh oh" and "woah" understands everything, and can communicate really well without talking. I am not bothered by the no talking yet. He is just cute cute!
He is eating pretty much all table foods. He is climbing, clapping ( he loves patty cake) Can climb up and down the stairs. He loves to play with his sister, anything she has, he needs to have. She is the only one who can make him laugh really hard.

Jake is such a crack up these days, he has a funny personality can't wait for what is to come

We have been needing a good face lift on all of our stuff basically since we got married. We have never really had the money, as poor college students know, to get nice stuff. Now that we are out of college and into a career we are slowly starting to upgrade. Just a few things at a time when we have a little extra money. Getting better organized, having more of a theme in the house, so it isn't just a bunch of random things thrown together. It feels so nice. It just makes my life more pleasant at home. And if Mama is Happy... well you know how it goes!

First off, we were not planning on buying a king bed when we went searching for Lucy's Twin, but Tyler just talked me right into it...(yeah right, like it took convincing!) We have been wanting a bigger bed for a while. So here it is. We love it. we sleep so much better, especially during my pregnancy. AND I absolutely love our bed set, it is so bright and fun!

I needed something to go above our bed, and the decor is still not done, I will find somethings, probably at Ross or somewhere to put on either side of the wreath.

Here is the wreath I made today! Idea from Pinterest, thank you! I think it turned out pretty cute. I am not crafty at all, but I really like how it turned out!

Did you guys know that we have a macho baby living in our house?? He is one STRONG boy! He tore off the front of the bottom drawer to our dresser, like clean off! There was no way of fixing it, so we have been looking for a new one for a few months, and we found this one at our favorite furniture store in town, (they deliver for free!) And it is perfect! I love it!

And last but not least, here is Lucy's new Twin bed! She was definitely in need of a bigger bed for her long legs. The toddler bed just wasn't cutting it anymore! This also came from our favorite furniture store. She loves it, and sleeps better too!

So there you have it. Tune in next week to see what the baby gender is!!

Love you all  <3

pregnancy update

Here I am at 18 weeks and 4 days. pretty much look the same. maybe not. I am feeling so much better. i get a few headaches here and there. I have my energy back, but i still have no desire to cook. I am starting to feel the baby more and more. not real constant yet, but i am sure that will come in the next few weeks.

What I am craving: Chocolate (I am doing pretty good at limiting myself), Diet vanilla coke (which I only have like 3 a week)- Dr said it was ok. I also crave cheeseburgers, not the cheap ones, like the good ones from Chilis... Mmmm... So as you can see this baby has not been real great at helping me stay healthy. BUT I have been trying my best to be responsible and eat good.

I have gained 3 pounds back from the 5 that I lost during the first trimester. So I am still down two. WE recently bought a King size bed, so I have been sleeping SO much better. there is enough room for my body pillow and I don't feel like I am pushing Tyler out, lol. We find out in 2 weeks what gender this little bean is going to be, couldn't be more excited. Tyler and I really have no preference this time, since we do have one of each, and we really don't have any feelings one way or the other. So it will be a total surprise. As long as he/she is healthy that is all I care about! I still can't believe I am having my 3rd child!! Crazy.

thats it for now, we will post in 2 weeks probably. Love you all!!

For Tyler

6 years Baby!

I just have grown to love you so much more in the last 6 years. I can't imagine going through this life with anyone else by my side. You make me laugh when I am sad. You hold my hand when I get frustrated. You have learned how to be a better man, and a great husband to me. I appreciate your hard work, and how you have come to support our family by yourself. Thank you for providing a way for me to stay home with our children, I know there is no better place for me. I could not be happier than when I am with you. I love how you are with me through everything. "If you're a bird, I'm a bird". You and me baby. I love you to the moon and back. Happy 6th Anniversary!!!
