Moments...(Have I already had that title? I'm getting lazy!)

I have had so many moments in the last few days that have felt so happy! My children have been doing cute things that just make my heart smile. I don't care if that sounds cheesy, it's true!

Jack wrote this song on Sunday. Ok, I know that it is only one sentence, but he's six and only been in piano for a few months. He wrote the notes to go with each word---so cute!

And I've realized that I have enough room on the counter for one more monkey boy!

Even if they do help themselves to a little too much dough (think fistfuls)!

Julia won her first trophy last night for soccer. She was thrilled! Jack burst into tears and Julia went on to explain that as you get older you just get more awards...to which Jack replied, "Older, Better, Older, Better---I get it!"
Jack went into his room to chill out about it and Julia came down and said that she had given Jack a dollar to make him feel better. Very nice of Julia, but not cool with me!
So, I went up to Jack to have a famous mom talk and told him how much I loved him and how wonderful he is and then said, "Now Jack, do you really need people to give you money to make you feel better?" And he said, "Only sometimes Mom".
I then explained that he didn't and told him to take his time to be ready to go down and give Julia a hug and congratulate her on her trophy. I told him he needed to wait until he really meant it. One thing I love about Jack is that he took this totally seriously. He waited about 45 minutes and came downstairs and gave Julia a big hug and said, "Julia, good job on soccer, I'm really proud of you". It was sincere & darling!

It's a....

Let me just begin by saying: look at those lips, look at that nose--so cute! Or should I say handsome?! We are having what appears by all accounts to be a healthy, strong and most definitely BOY baby!
Some how I feel the need to stand up and accept an award in advance for being the mother of four boys! But, honestly once I saw his face, we bonded! I know that it will be a lot of work, but such a blast too!
In case anyone is wondering, Julia is doing just fine--she had her moment of shock, but then she was just as happy as me to see that cute face! We went shopping and to lunch, just as it should be for a mother and daughter!
And I will leave you with a little game of peek a boo:

Anxiously Awaiting...

Tomorrow we find out if we are having a BOY or a GIRL! Let me rephrase that: I will not get up off of that ultrasound table until they tell me for sure what we are having---no private/shy babies allowed!

And there's nothing like a terrible head cold to make the week just fly by, feeling like there's a bomb inside my head ready to explode is such a pleasant way to spend the week. But, there is truth to every time you get sick you are more grateful to be healthy!
Julia has gladly accepted the assignment of making all the phone calls tomorrow to let everyone know what the big news is. I'm pretty sure that you will be able to tell the outcome within the first 5 seconds just from her tone of voice. Do you detect that someone just maybe wants a sister just maybe a little bit???
