Drum roll PLEASE....

Stella K. Smith is on her way!!
I wish I had a better picture but she was twisted weird and wouldn't cooperate. I just love to see that all her parts are there all the way down to her 1o little toes. I can't express how excited I am to be having a have a baby girl. I have already drained our bank account shopping!! It is just to fun to buy girl stuff. Even Chandler is adorable at the store, he will hold up girls things and say, "We need to get this for my little sister." He is so excited and it makes me anxious to have her knowing he will be a BIG helper. He and Brody both LOVE babies and are going to be very protective big brothers. My friend Bree gave us a bassinet and Chandler totally rearranged his room and got out blankets so that the baby could sleep with him in his room. He just can't wait for her to get here. He tells me I need to quit going to the gym so my belly can get fatter and I can have a baby. 21 weeks and ?of pounds later...I am well on my way to the fatter part!! I am so nervous to be having a 3rd child but feel so blessed to be given this opportunity.



Just a few randoms...

Chandler started preschool and even though the pics don't look like it, he really LOVES school. He loves packing his bag for show and tell and asks every morning if it is school day. When I took him to orientation I couldnt believe how sad I was. Maybe its the prego hormones but I kept getting choked up to see my little man growing up. The 1st day I picked him up and said, " So how was school?" He said fine. Then asked, " So how was the gym? Did you have a good work out? Did Brody miss me?" The 2nd day of school he told me I didn't need to walk him to the door and that he was big enough to do it himself. Talk about a dagger to the heart:( It makes me sad to see him grow up but I am so proud of the things he is learning and accomlishing. I love my little man and the BIG BOY he is becoming.



Brodys new boots. He loves them and want to wear them everywhere. I try to put on his tennis shoes and he throws them and says "boots"! Big Deal, they're cute!! What can I say about this little guy except that I just LOVE LOVE LOVE him!! He is the sweetest little guy ever and always has the biggest grin!! He loves to follow chan around and is devastated everytime we take chan to school. He just looks out the window and says " go, he gone, go"! It makes me sad but I know those 2 have become the best little buds! Brody is starting to say a lot of words and wants to do ANYTHING chandler does which is becoming a little scary! He gives the best hugs and kisses! And I just can' get enough of him. Maybe its knowing he won't be the baby for much longer, but I just cherish every moment with him. I just can't hug him enough or hold him enough cuz I see how fast he is growing and changing. I love you Brody!!

Our 1st candy/fruit snack stand....


I bought a big box of fruit snacks at costco and when we got home Chandler told me he wanted to do a candy stand. He pulled out the tackle box and put his money in it and used it as a cash register. He lined up all the snacks, just as any OCD child would, by color and size. And he waited for business to come...but due to the economic slump no business came:( He had 2 friends come but he gave them his money so they could buy a fruit snack from him. He doesn't quite get the $ concept. My parents came and he sold my dad a pack for $3 but when my mom said she only had $1 he made her have a fruit rollup instead of a whole pack and told her it would still be $1.50. What a bargainer!! He ended up making about $7 and wanted to buy himself some soccer cleats. He loves watching the games at the high school and so we got him some cleats. He is so funny, he takes his cleats in his backpack and changes at the game cuz thats what the players do!!




Boys will be Boys..and I Love It!!
Oh Chandler and Brody..I love you both so much. I love what great buds you are and how much you make each other laugh. Especially how much you make me laugh. You are the light of my life. All you have to do is smile or give me a kiss and my day is all better again. I love when you chase each other around the house and play your silly games. Your laughter brings me such true joy and happiness. I love that I am your Mom and get to have such happy, valiant sons like you!!

I am so excited that you are having a little girl. I think she was definitely meant to be! Chan looks like a real school boy with his back pack. I get choked up myself thinking of these kids grown up enough to go to preschool! Sorry we missed the sale of the fruit snacks Chan Man, but way to be ambitious! Brody's boots are the best! I keep telling you these boys have Wyoming blood!

Congrats on having a name picked already:) We are still duking it out over here! I'm sure it will come down to another coin toss. It seems to be the way we like to do it over here. Only this time I think I should be able to choose, since he won the coin toss last time:) We can't wait to meet Stella! My kids are the same way with picking out clothes. Just yesterday we were at Fred Myer and Ryker and I couldn't pull the 2 of them away from showing us all the baby clothes they wanted to get her. She doesn't need a lot, thanks to her big sister. Way to go Chan man with the candy stand.. I love it..Ty has asked to do a lemonade stand several times. But I told him we'd have to wait until next summer. I love Brody's boots. He looks so cute! He is such a happy little fella! We miss you guys~:)

I LOVE the name, Stella. Love it! I'm so excited for you. Girls are great! A little whiny at times, but other than that, super!

Chan, I can't believe you're in preschool! I'm glad that you're having a good time in school.

Brody, love the boots! You are absolutely adorable.

Chan Man, we're sorry about your Candy Stand. Keep trying though, bud. Once people's "Obama Bucks" come in the mail, then the money will come pouring in. LOL. We would have bought some off of you.

Hope you guys are doing great! Again, congrats on baby Stella! Can't wait to meet her.
