When we were expecting Everett one of the things we wanted to do was to take some baby bump shots. Well, you can't do them for one child and not the other so we had to do some with Reid too. The thing about taking pictures with an eleven month old is that they always turn out much cuter in your head than in reality. But in our defense we did have a few things working against us. One, we were losing the great lighting quickly as the sun was going down. Two, we hadn't had dinner yet and Everett was hungry and tired. The third was Dustin was taking the pictures so getting any family shots was pretty much impossible.

To say we've been busy around here is an understatement. Maybe it's nesting mode though most likely my personality, but we've kicked it into high gear to get those last few things done before Reid arrives. This has included the huge project of cleaning our downstairs and setting up the spare bedroom. And folks, the impossible was made possible and it is finished!

My original intent was to have two to three posts a week with one of the posts being a Highlight Reel post posted on Fridays. Somehow this got out of whack and I've been posting at least once with it normally being a Highlight Reel post posted whenever. I'm not sure how this happened but I'm rolling with it. So it's out with the routine and I'll post when I can. I'm not giving up on this blog because I enjoy it and already love looking back but I am no longer stressing about having a routine or system for it. I figure as long as there are new posts being added it's fulfilling it's purpose. If you've been following my blog that's whats up and how it's going down. So basically a whole lot of gravity defying going on around here. Or something like that. Anywho, moving on...

Just like Everett's room Dustin and I knew that this next baby would have a room that he/she could grow in to. When we found out our second child was a boy we threw a couple ideas around as decor ideas. We considered a fishing theme room, a Route 66 room and eventually decided on a nautical themed room. Since it was a similar idea to Everett's room, an airplane room, we chose to take a different approach. We decided to keep it simple, clean and modern. This was also a benefit since Reid's room is a lot smaller than Everett's and there wasn't as much space to work with.

This past Sunday at our church we had children evangelists, Tim & Yvonne Rimmer also known as God's Handiwork, with us. They had a colorful set, puppets and skits and did a great job ministering to the children. It was Everett's first children's service and his first time seeing puppets.
