We're still around....

I know it has been a while and I am sorry to say I do not have any pictures to go with this post. My camera batteries have been dead for quite some time now and I just haven't taken the time to charge them up. I just wanted to give a quick March update since the month is almost over! So here we go....

Taegan had her first official Spring Break! Boy does Spring Break mean more when you have a little one in school full time! It just reminded me of how ready I am for summer...although I know Tae will be missing school because she was ready to go back after a week! We kicked off Spring Break with a visit from my sister and her kids and grand kids. I LOVE being with them and it is always nice to have them visit! After they left on Sunday the allergy bug got me pretty bad and I spent the rest of the week in bed! I felt so bad for Tae because here she was out of school and I didn't feel up to doing anything! She had two request for the week...go to McDonald's and go to Chuck-E-Cheese...two things we don't do very often and both very doable in a week! We did drive thru McD's early in the week and by Friday I was feeling a little better so we ventured to Chuck-E-Cheese. We had a great time eating pizza and playing games! We made a few other stops while we were in town and I was wiped out by the time we got home! Even though I spent the week in bed sick it was nice not to have to be dressed and be anywhere!

Taegan headed back to school the next week and she couldn't get there fast enough! I had no problems getting her up that morning! I unfortunately was still not feeling all that well! Again I spent most of the week in bed resting and doing as little as possible! I was two weeks in of being down at this point and it was getting real old around our house for everyone to say the least!

I had my monthly doctor visit the next Monday and got to hear our sweet baby's heartbeat! There is just nothing like hearing that sweet sound! We heard a very strong heartbeat at a heart rate of 153. Chad and I think we are having another little girl, but Tae thinks it is a brother! I guess we will see in September! The doctor gave me an antibiotic since I was starting week three and it had now moved to my sinuses. By that night I was down worse than I had been and was so thankful I hd been to the doctor that day. The rest of that week was pretty rough but I gradually started feeling better by the end of the week! I think I am on the mend and feeling much better now! Thank goodness!!

The weather has been BEAUTIFUL here for the last week! Friday after school Tae and I headed to the park where we met Leslie, Grayson and Nellie Grace. We spent several hours just soaking up the beautiful weather. It was nice to get to sit and visit with Leslie while the kids played! Again Saturday it was just too pretty to be inside and so that afternoon we headed to lake to do some fishing. Taegan had fun riding in the boat and fishing on and off. It was so nice and relaxing to be outside soaking up the sun!

I can't believe we are already at the end of March! Time is just flying by! My precious little girl will be six next month and that just blows my mind! Where has the time gone?!? I am so thankful that God had blessed me with such a precious family that is still growing! I am looking forward to see what is to come because God has just overflowed our lives with sweet blessings!
