We're having a........

We are having a precious baby girl!!! I am so happy. I would be happy for a boy too but I will have to admit that I was secretely hoping it was a girl. I don't know what to do with a boy. I'm sure I would figure it out but my Mom and I need a new shopping partner and we were afraid we would make him gay. :) Plus it is so much fun shopping for little girl clothes. My Mom and I are having a ball of course. Nick just put the crib up and we are already starting her baby library. I have never been so happy in my life. I am so blessed. I really enjoy being pregnant. I have aches and pains once and awhile but other than that everything is going really well. Much better than the 1st trimester. That is for sure. The only thing that has been a struggle is trying to find maternity clothes. I wish I could sport sweats everyday but that won't fly as a teacher. None of the pants fit me. I tried on so many and looked hilarious. I am now turning to leggins or stretchy pants. Thank goodness they are in style right now. I got a couple of sweaters and shirts so that is good. My belly is getting so big. I love it. I'm sure I won't be saying that in a couple of months. I love feeling her move too. It is the best feeling. Nick and I are starting birthing classes soon so we can be as prepared as possible. I am sooo scared.

Here are some pictures of the last ultrasound. She is a thumbsucker like her Momma was. Braces here we come. Oh, and I forgot, the best part. Her name is Marlie Marie Coleman.

The Winter Storm of 09'

I love snow storms. They are so beautiful. I love cuddling with my honey and kitties with the fireplace roaring. It snowed for 24 hours straight. We ended up getting 2 feet of snow. It's nice to be forced to do nothing but watch the snow come down. I don't have school today either. Yahooo. Here are some pictures of Nicholas after he snow blowed the driveway. It took about 3 hours. Thank goodness our neighbor let us borrow his because we didn't even have a shovel. When he was finished he decided to be silly and play around in the snow. It was cute, my little California boy playing in the snow like a little kid.
