Gotta start somewhere

I have been MIA for quite some time now. Life has just been a whirlwind of crazy-ness! I am going to attempt to start blogging again, but I am not sure that I will be able to keep up! We shall see, I suppose. Just a short update..

We are pregnant (again). I am almost 28 weeks and we are expecting another little boy (Landon) some time around December 8th. We had NO plans to have another baby but you know how they say condoms are only 99.99999% accurate in preventing a pregnancy??! Yeah, we were that .1%! BUT, babies are a wonderful blessing and I couldn't be more excited to hold my little guy when he is born. This will make FIVE kids total between Michael and myself. I don't know how I will manage, what with 3 of them being under the age of 3! But, I will!

Tyler started 10th grade this year and Elise started 1st grade! They are doing very well and growing up WAY too fast. (or not fast enough??! Totally kidding) Tyler is 15 and has completed Drivers Ed and will be getting his permit soon (Say whaaatt???!!) and Elise is 6 and such a little DIVA! :)

Ava is also getting big! She is incredibly smart and makes me so proud. She's 2 1/2 and weighs in at 29lbs (as of yesterday). She is half way potty trained. Was doing VERY well, and I screwed up and started putting Pull-ups back on her. She still goes in the potty but not every time. She's doing well though. Still has her uh-oh (pacifier) and I *really* need to get her off of it.

Brayden will be ONE next weekend. WTH???!! He is walking and talks a bunch of baby gibberish. Among that gibberish are the words: Ma-ma, Da-da, Ba-Ba, Paw-Paw, Bye-Bye, No-No.. He is all over the place and in to *everything*.

Michael had his Gallbladder taken out a few weeks ago and is doing well! Him and Tyler went to Washington D.C. a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful time.

Me? Well, I'm hanging in there. Definitely ready for some cooler Fall weather! Getting to the slightly uncomfortable stages of pregnancy - you know, the ridiculously *horrible* heartburn, back aches, some swelling and all that fun stuff. I really can't complain though, cause I have been pretty blessed with "easy" pregnancies compared to some women. This pregnancy has, for sure, FLOWN by and I couldn't be happier about it! ;) I'm ready to get my body back and be my normal self again, considering that in the last 3 years I have pretty much been pregnant for a majority of the time! BUT, I am also in no major rush to add more chaos to our little brady bunch! LOL

So, that's where we are now. I miss all of my blogging buddies and I certainly miss reading your blogs!! Hope to stop in and say hello SOON. But for now, I am off to bed. Ava has had a terrible stomach bug for the last 2 days and I think Brayden may be catching it now too. Oh, the joys of motherhood.
