Baby #2 – 20 Week Ultra Sound

January 6, 2017

This was such an exciting day!  We were worried that some major snow would cancel our appointment, but we braved the elements.

Mollie stayed with Melissa and Dallas while we went, and we were super glad about that after we waited in the small crowded waiting room for TWO HOURS!  It was getting a little ridiculous and we were starving.  I have no idea why we had to sit there that long for an appointment that we had made two months ago and confirmed through email and a phone call.

We were both a little agitated but as soon as she started the ultra sound all we could do was smile.  It is so fun to see a sweet little baby on the big screen.  I loved seeing every picture she took…. even the boring ones. 

After it was all said and done, we have a healthy baby and that is all we could have asked for.  And the baby already looks like his daddy….

Christmas 2016

Christmas came and went really fast this year… but we so enjoyed all the time off from work and spending a lot of quality time together.

We went to Grandma and Papa’s house to celebrate first.  Mollie had a great time playing with Henry and got to open her scooter early!  They took turns driving that thing back and forth for what seems like hours.  She also got to help Grandma make a cake, color with Papa Bill, and play memory with Uncle Tommy.  I got to go watch Landry play a basketball game and talk babies!  Nate was excited to get some new headers (whatever those are) for his old truck, and we had fun catching up with everyone.

Next we did our Christmas Eve tradition a little early because we knew we’d be traveling on that day this year.  Mollie got to open one present and we had a family movie night… complete with Christmas pajamas, a pallet, and popcorn.

And, then it was off to Texas.  Mollie was excited to go back to Mamaw and Papaw’s so soon after Thanksgiving.  She got to play with Aubrey and Avery and play a fun game with Aunt Barbara and Aunt Mary where she loooooved gathering up a million little toys.

We hurried home on Christmas Eve…. and then just like that it was Christmas!!!  Mollie got up so excited to open the presents she had been eyeing under our tree for quite some time.  Nate and I loved watching her get every last piece of tape or paper off her gifts and them immediately open them up to play with.  Nate got to open his remote control Millinium Falcon…. It went one direction, up.  And, then we got ready for church because Christmas fell on a Sunday this year.  It was fun to see our church family on such an important day.

Side Note:  We didn’t get to celebrate with Grandmama and Granddaddy…. It’s a long story, but after a lot of tears, confusion and Nate taking a trip down to P-town to talk with them, it just came down to miscommunication.  I’m still confused as to why the date was more important than us being there, but I guess someday I may understand.  I’m just sad Mollie didn’t get to spend more time with her cousins…. We won’t make the same mistake next year.
