Still no Maddie!

Quinn went to the doctor today and they told her no change and that she has still only dilated 1 centimeter. They did tell her that Madelyn is where she needs to be and will come when she is ready! They told her that Maddie is in a ball and most people are having contractions at this point. Quinn has been having some cramps but nothing she can't handle and they go away. They told her the estimated weight right now is around 7 lbs. They were really off with me, they said Dylan would weigh around 6 lbs and he was 7lbs 10oz! So, I'm curious to see how much she weighs! Her doctor did tell her that she will induce the week of her due date if she isn't here yet! Dylan's birthday is next Tuesday, so maybe she wants to wait til then! I think she will be here before then, but either way, Maddie will be here within 2 weeks!! We are all so excited and can't wait to meet our sweet little angel!!

Dylan's 2 year pics

Today we went to Morris Avenue to take Dylan's 2 year pics! I really couldn't afford to have somebody take them for me, so Jeremy & I decided to take some pics ourselves! We just let Dylan run around! Although I have been taking pictures of him since he came into this world, he's not much of a poser yet! I think we got some cute ones! It was cool outside, but I knew I had to hurry up and get some made b/c my baby boy will be "2" February 3rd! It's so hard to believe that another year has passed! It seems like yesterday when I was holding him in my arms for the first time! He is such a joy to us! We love our baby boy so much!

Update on Quinn Maddie yet!! Quinn went to the doctor today and they told her she had dilated a full centimeter and that Maddie had dropped! Quinn is pretty miserable right now, she pulled two muscles in her stomach from rolling over while she was sleeping. She also had a bladder infection, but they gave her some medicine, so that is helping a little. She has been in a lot of pain and we are all hoping Madelyn will be here soon! One good thing is that Quinn's last day of work was last Friday. She just couldn't stand on her feet anymore. Plus, Quinn is going to be fortunate enough to be able to stay at home with Maddie (I'm so jealous)! I keep calling Quinn every few hours just to make sure she is ok. I am hoping she will call me soon and tell me that she is going to the hospital! Please keep all them in your prayers and I will keep everyone posted!

Dylan's birthday present

We bought Dylan's birthday present tonight! I am so excited! Academy Sports in Lakeshore is going out of business and our friends Robby and Niki were there and they knew we have been looking for a playset for Dylan. We have been wanting to get one for awhile, but they are just so expensive! They had one left and it was 70% off! We couldn't believe it! So, of course Jeremy rode out there and picked it up!! I can't wait for Dylan to play on it this summer! He will love it!

I love my friends!

All the girls

The birthday girls

My birthday cake

I love my gifts!

So, tonight I met some friends for dinner for what I thought was just a going away dinner for my friend Alicia. What I didn't know is that is was a surprise party for me! When I came in Alicia showed me my pretty pink cookie cake and said Happy Birthday, this is for you! I couldn't believe it! They totally got me, I had NO idea! A lot of my friends came and we ate and drank and had a great time! Alicia turned the big "21" yesterday, so it was fun celebrating our birthdays together! We both got some unexpected gifts! I gave Alicia some canary yellow earrings last week b/c I just couldn't wait...they are so pretty! My friend Amy got me the cutest purse from Prissy Jane, I can't wait to carry it tomorrow! Then, my other friend Amy gave me the nicest wrought iron holder to decorate with, I love it! My friend Sally got me the cutest bathroom bowl filled with vanilla body wash, lotion, spray, a sponge and a candle! I already have it in my matches perfect! Last but certainly not least...they got me teared up on this one, they got me a gift certificate to a spa for a massage and a facial! I couldn't believe that they did that, I was so surprised! I love it and can't wait to use it! It was a night to remember forever! I am going to miss seeing Alicia everyday, but I wish her all the best! God has blessed me with the best friends in the whole world and I can't thank them enough! Love you guys!

My 30th birthday!

My baby boy & me

Singing Happy Birthday

Blowing out the candles

The sweetest card ever


Although I turned 30 on January 15th, it was a great day! I am not one of those that gets depressed b/c I am now out of my twenties! I am just glad to be here and I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life! When I got up on my birthday my sweet baby boy brought me a card from him and my hubby! He looked at me and handed the cards to me and said, "Appy irfday Mommy"! It was the sweetest thing! I just had to put his card on here, it is precious and I will never forget it! My Mama and Quinner came over Saturday and cooked my favorite meal and my Mama made me my favorite dessert! I wasn't expecting anything and Quinn gave me the sweetest card, it made me cry...I love her so much! I also got some money from Quinn and a gift card from Mama. They made me promise to buy something for myself! (It's so hard for me to do) I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life!

Madelyn's room

This weekend we went to Quinn's to get some pictures of Maddie's room. I think it turned out so cute! Even though they hope to be moving soon, Quinn still wanted her room to be special. Quinn painted the room in a mint green all by herself over a month ago and just waited for Brad to put all the furniture together. Now that her room is ready, Quinn can relax (for a minute anyways)! I FINALLY got to put up her monogram decal that I bought awhile back. I think it is precious!! Quinn absolutely loves it!! Right now, there is nothing over her changing table, but I am making something to hang there. I can't give it to Quinn until after Maddie is born, I can't wait!! MiMi had to buy her 1st piggy bank, it is so cute! My Granny made a pink and blue sweater before me and Quinn were even thought of. Dylan got to wear the blue one home and Maddie will get to wear the pink one! It means so much to us and I know our Granny would be excited that they got to wear them! We are all so anxious to meet little Miss Maddie, hopefully she will be here soon!

Update on Quinn

Today Quinn went to the doctor and they told her she has dilated 1 centimeter...YAY!! Looks like little miss Madelyn will be here before February 11th!! Quinn has been saying for months that she just knows she is coming early! Maybe it's the fact that Quinn stands on her feet all day or that Maddie is just ready to get here! Either way, we can't wait to meet her! Keep Quinn and Brad in your prayers and I will keep everyone posted!!

~Quinn's Baby Shower~

Yesterday was Quinn's baby shower and it was so much fun! They got so many nice things and are so thankful for all their family and friends! I had so much fun decorating and taking pictures! Quinn was so happy and could not stop smiling! They got a lot of stuff and some gift cards too! I am so excited about Maddie getting here that I can hardly stand it! Quinn & Brad are working hard to get everything ready for their sweet little angel! Brad put the furniture together last weekend and Quinn organized most of Madelyn's things! As some of you may know, Quinn & Brad have their house on the market right now, so they don't want to put a lot of stuff on the walls that they will just have to take down. So, Aunt Allison has been looking for something special to put on the wall that they could take down when they move! I found a monogram decal that is Madelyn's initials in really fancy letters in pink to match the nursery! It came in today and I can't wait to take it to Quinn so she can put it on the wall! I am going by there this weekend, so I will post pictures then! I love my sister so much and I can't wait for her to experience motherhood, it is the best thing in the whole world! I know she will be the best Mommy! This is such a special time for all of us, we are so thankful!!

Well, the beginning of the new year has been fun for us! This weekend we stayed outside most of the time! Dylan really enjoyed getting to ride his tractor and also liked riding Stefy & Booger's 4wheelers! It was a fun weekend and I just can't wait til Madelyn gets here so she can join in on all the fun!
