New Place, New Baby, New Sister.

Lots of new things in our lives right now! We moved about a month ago, and we love it. More space, new decor, and a feeling of home. I've done a lot of redecorating, and eventually, when I can have the rooms picked up for longer than a min I'll take pics. We are going to totally redecorate the girls bedroom after Christmas because they are getting bunk beds, thanks to their Bella. (Grant's mom.) It's just fun to be out of a stark white environment, and so nice that my friend/landloard, Melinda, has such great taste and picked wonderful paint colors for this place!

We also are expecting our third baby. No we do not know the sex yet, but we really don't care what it is. We just want a healthy baby. Of course a girl would be nice because it would save us lots! Sienna is super excited, and has her boy name picked out, but she also says she thinks it's a girl. Maggie is oblivious, and her world will be rocked in May. It's so funny that we tried for a year, lost two babies, and right when we stopped trying and got on birth control, we got pregnant. The timing of things couldn't be anymore perfect. Grant will graduate a month before this little one arrives, and he'll actually get to be home more to help after the baby gets here. I think we've decided to do this birth by ourselves. My mom was there for Sienna, his mom was there for Maggie, and it was awesome to have all the help, but this could be our last baby, so we are going to have just me and him in the delivery room, and he'll get to take a week off to spend time with our new little family. I'm so looking forward to it! Then we can bring on the Grandmas!!!

Last of all, I'm getting a new sister in December! No my 50+ mother is not expecting, my little brother is getting married! I haven't met her yet, darn this living so far away, but Sienna spent a month in Texas this summer and she adores her new Aunt Sammy. From what I hear, she's pretty impressive,  is going to TCU, and is a track star. (at least to my brother) I've seen pics, and she is gorgeous, so I approve! We are going for the wedding and I can't wait to meet her! After Daniel gets hitched my parents have only one child left to get married! I can't believe how fast it went from living at home and us all being kids, to becoming married adults. My little sister, who is the only one not married, even has her own apartment, so you can hardly still call her anything but an adult. So weird.

So for our trip, I'm going to get some new maternity clothes. That's what I'm getting with my B-Day money.  Here are a few looks that I'm hoping I don't look awkward in!

I love this dress. I'm hoping it will be long enough on me!

Is anyone else obsessed with the tall sock, boot, legging combo??? I hope my short preggo legs look good in this trend, because its soooo wintery and I can't get enough.

Throw in a couple on long comfy cardigans, and call it a day. I love being preggo in the winter!
