My wonderful older sister

So this picture is over a year old, but it is still one of my favorites. I blogged about my younger sister and now I need to blog about my older one. I love my older sister. We have always been close because there are two boys in between us so we had to stick together! She has always been so sweet to me and I remember her telling us stories when we were little and reading to us (Shell and I). We are so lucky to live about 5 minutes away from her and her husband right now. It is so fun. We get together almost every week for FHE and that has been so nice. She also babysits for me ALL the time and never lets me compensate her! Brielle absolutely loves her. I'm so thankful for you Shimayne! Thanks for being such an awesome older sister. I love you!!

My amazing younger sister

This is my amazing younger sister, Shelleen. She is so talented in so many ways!

A couple of weeks ago, Shell came down to my house, did all my dishes, cleaned up my front room, mowed my lawn, got laundry done, helped take care of my little girl and made dinner for Mike and I! She is such an angel. She knows that I have a hard time when I am pregnant and so she came down to help us out. She knows how I feel because she has a really hard time when she is pregnant as well so I just wanted to tell her how much I love her and appreciate everything she does for me and my family. Thanks Shell!! You are the best and I'm so grateful you are my sister! I love you!

Saga of pregnancy and my sweet, sweet husband.

So obviously I have not been feeling well lately. It makes me so happy when women feel really good when they are pregnant. I think it is so awesome when it happens, but unfortunately I am not one of those people. I feel sick 95% of the time and I have NO ambition to do ANYTHING. I can't think of anything to eat since NOTHING tastes good or sounds good. I have no energy to clean the house or do any work. I can barely get through the day taking care of Brielle. So how do you feed your kids when you cannot even think of a single thing to eat yourself that you can keep down? It is so hard for me to think of anything to feed her. Any ideas? How do you stop from feeling so incredibly lazy and so incompetent when you are pregnant? Of course I know that being pregnant is important and no one else can take care of this baby but me; however, I feel like other women can handle pregnancy so much better than I can and can actually do things when they are pregnant. How do you do it? How do you find ambition when you don't feel well?

My huband is so sweet. When he comes home, he cleans up and makes dinner for us. He is so loving and thoughtful and I cannot believe what a wonderful man I married. He knows I do not feel well and have no energy but still it has to be hard coming home after a long day to a dirty house with no dinner every night. I'm so sorry honey. We just celebrated our 7th anniversary the other day and it was so great to just be with him and have lunch and go to a movie. We have had 7 wonderful years. I am so blessed to be his wife. I am so lucky he takes such good care of us, especially when I'm pregnant and cannot seem to take care of myself. I love you Mike. Happy Anniversary!

Could it be?

It's true, It's true. Here comes baby #2! I am pregnant with #2 and we could not be more excited! I did have to do in-vitro again but we are so happy it worked. I am about 10 weeks along and have a feeling this pregnancy is going to go much better than the last one!
