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

This morning I had an ultrasound done at one of my clinics; the tech said she was 90% sure it was a girl. So we are super excited to announce that Micah Claire will probably be getting a baby sister at the end of September. I guess that's a good thing because she has been telling us for weeks now that she doesn't want a boy; and if it's a boy we're taking it back! LOL
We have our big ultrasound in 2-3 weeks so maybe at that point we will know for 100% sure it's a girl! And here she is in all her glory........ our baby girl.
She measured exactly 18 weeks today; which is just a few days head of where I'm suppose to be and she weighed a whopping 8oz!!!!! Hopefully with our big ultrasound I'll get some good pictures of her face and can post them! But for right now you just look at her cute little bottom!

Micah Claire's first visit to the Dentist!

This morning Micah Claire had her very first dental appointment. She was so excited. She wanted to leave as soon as she woke up this morning. I was really nervous that she was going to freak out once she got there and got into the dental chair; but I was wrong. She did GREAT!

She couldn't wait to get out the door this morning.I had to fill out all her "new patient" paper work and she kept saying; Mom what are you doing; Mom are you done yet; Mom can we go see the dentist yet. She just about drove me crazy. But once we turned in our paper work they quickly called her back; and she was READY!Ms. Cindy showed her all the tools first and explained what everything did! Micah Claire listened to her and watched her super closely!Then she cleaned scrapped all her teeth. She sat there so calm and still; I was so proud and impressed with my girl!!!!Then it was time to really clean them. They told me about 6 months ago to start using an electric toothbrush to help M.C. get use to the noise and movement in her mouth. That was the best advise ever! That electric cleaner didn't phase her one bit!

Then it was time for a little flossing. Then Dr. Child's came in and checked all 20 of her teeth and said they were pretty and perfect!!!! M.C. got a new toothbrush and a sticker. She was so excited; but all the way home she kept asking why they didn't give her a sucker. LOL! I hope our next visit, in 6 months, goes just as smoothly!

31 months

I'm a little behind posting Micah Claire's 31 month pics. I wish I had a good excuse but my only real excuse is laziness. When I was pregnant with M.C. I had plenty of time to rest. But this time around, I've got a 2 year old who keeps me on my toes from daylight till dawn.

She insisted on taking pictures on the back stairs. Little did I realize the trash cans were gonna be in the background. Opps, my bad! Oh well, you live and you learn.Trash can in the back ground or not.... she's still beautiful!I'm super happy Spring is here. I love all M.C.'s new dresses! This is one of my fav's!!!! CheeseOf course she needed to tell me something right in the middle. Soooo sassy!And of course I didn't even notice her top button came unbuttoned till we were done taking pictures. Urrr... I'm so slipping these days.
And about 3 weeks ago we had 3 new baby goats born. We named them Ella, Elden, and Carson.

Happy Easter!

We celebrated Easter at Mimi and Poppa Mike's house yesterday with the entire Cowart clan.

Micah Claire, Colton and Cooper! M.C. wasn't to fond of him because he kept nibbling on her. Mimi, M.C. and busy body Madelyn.

I finally got her to sit still for a second so that I could get a picture of her. I can't believe how fast this little red head cutie pie is growing!

On the anticipation of the egg hunt..........

They were not to happy to have to stop and take pictures before they could go out and hunt eggs. I took 5 pictures and in every one of them Emily was making some kind of silly

Let the hunt begin!! M.C. found one!

And with a little help from Uncle Brian she found another one.
And then she stumbled upon the GOLDEN EGG (thanks to Daddy and Uncle Brain).

It had $5 dollars in it; but she could have cared less. After this picture she turned to Emily and said: here Emiwee you can have it! That's my sweet girl!

Then she told me, I'm tired of hunting eggs, can somebody carry me. Bless her heart she's been sick with a runny nose and fever since Thursday afternoon. But we are slowly getting better!

Then it was time for a little swinging; courtesy of Uncle Brian. When we got home, Nana told us that the Easter Bunny had stopped by and decorated all 10 of our Bradford Pear tress with ribbons and Easter eggs. M.C. was soooooo excited!

She couldn't keep her hands off the eggs for one second!
This morning she awoke to find that Easter Bunny had returned to bring her a basket full of goodies.
Look at that smile; such excitement!
He even brought her one whole dollar!

And some bracelets

And several pairs of super cool sunglasses

And a whole bunch of rings. And of course she had to put them all on at the same time; too cute!

This is the card that we sent out to some of our family and friends last weekend. This was our way of announcing that we were pregnant. You would not believe how confused this card made people. I had several people ask me if we got a new dog! I MEAN REALLY?????? I had no idea it was going to be so difficult for people to figure out what this meant. I told Shawn if we ever (and that's a SUPER slim chance) have another baby.... well just send a letter that says " We're having another baby retards!" LOL!!! Just kidding... NO offense to all my family and friends.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing Easter weekend!
