Finally....... A Baby Update!

I love our Blog and enjoy doing it mostly because it's my way of scrap booking! But it's not my life and it's not up-to-the-minute accurate!  I saw someone in Wal-Mart a few weeks ago....who I didn't know read my blog....but apparently she does...... and she says...... Well look you and your belly! Glad to see your still pregnant. You haven't had any baby blog updates so it's like your still stuck at 15 weeks pregnant.
I mean what originally popped into my head was not a nice reply..... mostly due to my hormones.....but I resisted! politely as possible being 8 months pregnant said....... well ya know I'm kinda busy these days; maybe I will get around to it soon and I smiled!
So guess what.... I finally got around to doing a baby update!  So much has gone on in the last four months...... mostly the growth of my stomach and the loss of visual contact with anything below the top of my belly! I totally forgot how draining pregnancy can be. This is has been a great pregnancy but I am older this time and have WAY less down time.  So the days are longer and harder and by the Grace of God I was given a husband who loves and adores me even on my most bitchiest of days! Thank you Willie!!!!
12 weeks!  GOOD LORD that seems like a lifetime ago! 

 Sneak peak out our 15 weeks old baby....Mrs. Lynn was sure she could tell the gender but wanted to wait 2 more week to be sure before she old us...UHHHHH!!!!! Such TORTURE!!!
Baby C waving hi to mommy and daddy!

Finally Ms. Lynn did another ultrasound!!!! BUT Daddy couldn't be there and he REFUSED to let me find out without him there!  So she sealed it up tight in THREE envelops so I wouldn't peak.  And of course it was a super busy day with kids after school activities, and I had a hair appointment, and daddy had to work late!  SO FINALLY at 6:30 pm daddy and I were both home.  We wanted to find out alone so we had to lock our bedroom door, go into our bathroom and lock that get away from our nosy little girls!  We wanted a fun way to tell them so we loaded them up and headed to Nana and Poppa's house. Nana and Poppa acted more like kids than the girls did, it was so fun to see them all waiting to hear!!!!

And for some reason my husband stopped videoing and then restarted so here is Nana and Poppa's reaction.  Can ya tell Poppa is a little excited,lol!

Yep....that's right ......its' a boy!  OMG a BOY!!! WOW!!!!
There he is...our precious little boy!  I never in my wildest dreams would have thought we would have a boy. I had a strange feeling it was a boy but never thought it was possible! I mean we do girls....bows....ruffles.....nail polish!  I had honestly already picked out THREE little matching Christmas dress for my THREE girls to wear this year!  
And the official photo to prove.... He is a He!

25 weeks....Here it comes.... I feel like I skipped the "baby bump stage" and BAM.... There was a full baby belly out of now where! 

30 weeks...... I finally feel pregnant... I can no longer reach my toes and struggle to tie my shoes! 

35 weeks...........YIKES that boy is doing some major growing!  
One of my co-workers made him the cutesiest little monkey blanket!  The little ears all stand out and flip precious!!!

After we picked a name.... I immediately ordered his coming home outfit!  Awwww it just melts me to pieces! Never did I think something Blue would make this girl tear up......but boy was I was wrong!
Then I ordered labels with his name on it! I just love seeing his makes it seem so real!
And finally a 30 week 4D ultrasound of our precious miracle!  It still makes me stand still in total aww that this baby had only a 10% chance of making it at 7 weeks gestation.  And NOW here we are at 35 weeks..... healthy and strong!  My God.... I stand in aww of you and your works!
Look at those sweet chubby cheeks and that those plump lips! I can't wait to kiss all over him!!! He should have been about 3#s but he was it looks like we may have another big ole Cowart baby!
Let the count down begin.....because this mommy is ready to see her feet again and lay eyes on her sweet baby boy!!!!

Clark County Pageant, Parade, and Fair!

 Micah Claire you have waited all summer for this is pageant and the time finally came! I was really worried you would change you mind at the last minute and not want to do it; but you didn't! You were so brave and came more out of your shell than I ever imagined you would!
 We started the week off with a group picture for the local newspaper.

 Photo bombed yet again by little sister!  And Kin looks so proud of herself because it just tickled her daddy to see her do it!

 Then we had rehearsal....then the big day was here! Ms Taylor came over and did your hair and make up.  You never stopped smiling from ear-to-ear; you were beyond ecstatic to get all dolled up!

Hair....make....time to roll!

 Getting your dressed all synced and tied up!
 You were one excited girl!

You look half grown here! Which you daddy did not take to kindly too,lol!

 Thank Ms. Taylor for all your help! We love ya bunches!
 And of course Andrea was there, which made MC's night even better!!!!
 Getting ready to hit the stage!
 You remind me of Goldie locks in this picture!
 You looked like a total princess!

 Walking the stage!
 I was just amazed at how confident you were!  It really shocked me that you didn't act shy or look away!
 Waiting for the announcement of the winner!
 You did not win but you lost with total grace!  You were the ONLY contestant out of 11 girls who clapped for each winner! That my dear... makes you a TOTAL winner in my book!  You were a little bummed back stage and quite for a little while. On the way home, you said.... Mommy can I try again next year and I said yes.....against my better judgement!  You said....good, I'm gonna practice more and try again next year! You just impressed me beyond measure MC!  You are growing up and maturing before my very eyes! You made me one proud mommy that night!
 Then it was time for the fair parade.....what you looked foward to the most....Riding in a convertible!
 You loved the leopard print sign Nana made ya!
 And you were head over heels in love with Ms. Vicki's car!  You asked if you could have it when you turned 16.  Cracked me up!

 Daddy and his girls getting ready for the

Mommy and Kin's selfie!
Sadie and Kinley on the merry-go-round!
 MC and Cadie!

 Oh the peace signs! She kills me!
 Ferris wheel all alone this year!!!!
 Some how Cadie talked daddy into riding with her!
 Kinley's first bumper car experience!
 She loved all the bumping and wrecking!
 Poor Sadie looks scared to death!
 They even broke the rules and let Kinley ride a big kids ride with daddy. I was worried it would be to scary and fast for her but she LOVED it!

Kin, Cadie, MC, and Sadie! 
My little clowns having a blast! They are ready for the fair to come back next year!!!
