Our offer was accepted last night on a house in Copperfield.  This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Lexington.  I can really see raising our girls in this house.  The house needs updating but its in a great location, the best schools and has an amazing yard.  With time and effort and don't forget $$, I think this house could become a real gem.

                        We are excited!  We close on June 22nd!  I know this one will work out.

Memorial Day Museum Trip

We would of been moving in this past weekend but we all know how that story ends.  We worked on getting comfortable at my moms house over the weekend instead and attended our niece Jenna Graduation Party.  Mary and Billy put out a great BBQ spread and Scott and I over indulged.  :)

 On Sunday I wanted to do something fun and not sit around unpacking the whole weekend so we took Cami up to Cinny for a day at the Children's Museum.  We also purchased tickets to the history museum.  (there are 3 museums in one building so it's a great way to spend an entire day) Cami was not very interested in the children's museum.  They have tons of things for her to interact with but she keep asking us where the animals and "dinos" were at.  So, we finally went up to the other museum after about an hour.   She stayed in the history museum for almost 2 hours.  She loved looking at the animals and was on the hunt for the T-Rex!

Life doesn't always go as planned

Well... things just don't always go as planned. 

I found out two days before we planned to close on our new house that the sellers has an IRS tax lien on their home.  OKAY...  They claim they had no idea blah, blah, blah.  They said we could move in and pay rent until they get the lien taken off and this would only take a week. This didn't sit well with me so I said no.  Come to find out that they have know for over 3 weeks about this lien (I'm sure even longer than that) but 2 days before closing filed a paper to get the lien removed since they were not going to make any profit off the sell of their home.

 After the inspection Scott and I discussed all of the repairs needed and he said, "I've got this feeling, just a little voice saying this house is a lemon.  Don't buy it."  We talked ourselves out of his "feeling" and kept on going.  Then little red flags kept popping up and we kept ignoring them.  What other sign does God have to give me to say, STAY AWAY.  Short of burning the house down I don't think he could of done more!  So, we took this final warning and told the sellers to kiss our a$$! 

My mom is letting us stay with her until however long we need.  She keeps saying you'll be here all summer and to not worry about the new baby, she has plenty of room.  I say, we are out by no later then July 2nd.  Nothing against my mom, I love her dearly and we actually get along rather well.  She is not only my mother but one of my closest friends.  But accepting my family of three and everything that comes with us has to be hard.  This women is VERY clean and she hates clutter.  Ugh... this is not how I would classify my family. :) 

So, the search for a new house is back on!  I'm hoping something better is out there for us and this all will just be a learning experience. 

Baby Girl update:  Mark your calendars for July 27 at 7:30.  C-section has been officially schedule. That makes us only 9-weeks out.  Maybe we should work on finding her a name soon!!

Moving week

Thursday we close on our house and the new house.  Scott asked if I would be sad when we sold the house that "we raised our daughter in" (seriously she is 3) and my response was "I wont even look in the review mirror when we pull away."  Excited about the new house just nervous on how the transition will go for Camille.  She has been more than a handful lately and I hope that it isn't too overwhelming for her to take in.  I know that it will all work out but there really is a lot going on in that little girls world. 

On they way to school today she told me that she never wants to grow up and go to college.  She just wants to live with mommy and daddy and baby sister forever.  She doesn't want to get any bigger, she likes the size she is right now.  She is very clingy to Scott and I right now. She said we are her best friends (I'm second after daddy of course). 

Oh, don't let all that sweetness get to you.  We learned the word STUPID this weekend (thanks papaw Bowman) and she screamed and had a big old fit at church again this week. 

I'll post some pictures of the new house once we are up and running!

Failed again

Well, I failed my gestational diabetes test so this Friday I have to go back to do the 3 hour test.  I failed my first time around with Cami and just passed on the second test.  I've got a feeling that I'm going to fail the second test this time.  Just something in my bone (or is that my big butt) telling me that I need to start watching what I eat.  So, I hate to admit this about myself but I'm pretty much loading up on the carbs and sugar.  I feel like this is my last week to indulge and then I'm going to be on a diet for the next 10 weeks.  Well see.

Things with the move are coming along.  I think I'm stressing my mother out by not being as prepared or farther along with the packing but I know it will all work out in the end.  But a big Thank You to my mom.  She keeps me on my toes and has been a big help.  Its great to know that I didn't even have to ask, she just scheduled herself off work for the days we are moving.  She'll be the go getter and the person who unpacks the most boxes when its all said and done.  I know we wouldn't be able to do it without her.  Love you Paula!

Hello 3rd Trimester

Can you believe I'm starting my 3rd trimester?  My head is not there but my body is big enough to give birth!  Seriously!!

I'm feeling guilty about this baby.  I have not bought one thing for her or even given her a name.  I just don't want to let her down and I don't feel like I'm doing a very good job before she even makes an appearance. Hopefully after the move and things start setting down I'll get into flow.

It's strange to say after all that but I've been waiting for our girl.  We have been a happy family of three but in my heart of hearts I've been waiting for her to complete our family. 

I daydream if she will be just like Camille or will she have her own personality and style.  Will she be a daddys girl or will I have one child that likes me.  Will she look like Cami or will she throw us for a loop and have red hair?   

I don't have the answers but in around 12 weeks I'll get my answers.
