July 4th

So, I thought that I would already have these pictures up, but obviously that is not the case!

Nine weeks from yesterday Allie will be here...unless something happens before then! Crazy that we will be a family of 5!! We all are so excited and ready! Carson & Lily both talk about her almost everyday!

This past Tuesday I got to spend a much needed evening out with my college friends! It was so wonderful! I don't think wonderful can express all the excitement that was in the room! Another one of our friends is expecting a baby in January! Also, my friend Kim who I asked many of you to pray for in the past year had exciting news as well! They did paper work in May to start working on adopting a baby! A couple weeks ago they found out that some parents had chosen them...and the beginning of August they are going to be getting a BABY GIRL! We are so excited for them and what God has in store for their lives! I also can't wait for Baby Dillard and Allie to be best friends (b/c of course they don't have a choice, haha)!! Please help us in praying for both the Harden and Dillard families during this very exciting time!!

We received enrollment papers in the mail yesterday for Carson to start preschool. Is it really possible that he is going to school already? Where has the past three years gone? So, August 25th is his first day of school! I can't believe that it will be here in about a month!

Hope you all are having a great summer...enjoy what is left! More updates soon!

Sonogram Pictures of Allie

Summer greetings! Whew is it ever humid here today!
Earlier this morning we had 3D/4D sonogram pictures taken of Allie! They turned out so good! I got Carson and Lily's sono pictures out to see if I saw any resemblance...no such luck! She looks beautiful and perfect though!!

Things here are as busy as ever! Michael is working a lot! Between the Insurance thing and Church, he is very busy! Our wonderful babysitter has been helping us on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I can spend the morning helping Michael with whatever he needs! It is really nice to get away a little and makes me appreciate staying home more!

The kids are growing like crazy. Lily is almost as tall as Carson and both are wearing mostly 6x clothing! YIKES!! They play very well together for the most part. Spending time in their kiddy pool or at the sprinkler park is their favorite things right now!

Both of them keep asking and talking about Allie coming! They seem excited! We'll see how Lily takes it when another baby takes up some of her 'mommy time'. It is hard to belive that we will be a family of 5 in less than 10 weeks...I have to admit that I'm a little nervous! We planned for the 1st and then came the 2nd...I was too busy taking care of Carson to think about Lily coming! Now we have planned #3 and being out numbered scares me! I know that we will figure it out and before long I will think taking two to the store was a breeze!!

Hope you all are having a great summer! Hopefully, more updates soon!!

About Me

Currently, I spend most of my time at home being a full-time Mommy to Carson, Lily, and Allie. Michael and I have been married for almost 7 years. In our free time we enjoy spending time with family and friends and volunteering at our church! Most of our time is spent chasing our children, but we wouldn't have it any other way!!
