Oh Boy!

It is such a lovely thing having a little boy in the house. We are doing things we have not done before, like building tents under the table & playing with cars. It is amazing how God designed us each uniquely & how Kingston has brought a new fun to our little house. Hallee truly loves having a playmate & enjoys copying everything he does. That is something we are working on since that means the bad & good :) The two of them share so well & truly entertain each othermost of the time. Now if only Hallee could pick up Kingston's sleeping habits we would be set! We can't wait to add little Zoey to the beautiful chaos!!

War wounds...or as Hallee would
call them Oooowee!

25 Weeks!


I truly can not believe how fast this pregnancy is going by. I feel like it was just yesterday that we found out we were having another blessing. You are already 1 1/2 pounds in there, the size of a Rutabaga, which I really have no idea what that is. I have not been sleeping very well the past few weeks cause your sister has decided that sleep is an option. We are praying that you are a much better little sleep then she is.

Our house has changed a lot the last few weeks. It is fun & exciting having a boy in the house! He truly brings a new dynamic to our family that is great. I can't wait to see how the addition of little you enhances our family too! There is something so amazing about siblings & you are going to have so much fun playing with Hallee & Kingston. They ask about you everyday & can't wait for your arrival. I can tell you that you are in a much quieter place right now, the two of them are a little noisy :)

We love you so much Zoey & pray that you keep growing healthy. It is amazing to me that we love you as much as we do & yet our heavenly father loves you more, that is incredible. You are loved tremendously!

Bubble Prayer

Daddy was giving you a bath today & you unprompted grabbed his hands & started to pray. You were praying about mamma, dadda, baby & of course bubbles! Prayer is one of your favorite things, it is the sweetest thing.

24 Weeks!

Sweet Girl!

Time is flying by in this pregnancy! I truly can not believe that we are already 6 months into this blessing. You are growing like crazy, you are longer then a foot, about the length of an ear of corn. Your favorite time of day is bed time. I think cause you finally get daddy & I to yourself you make sure we spend some time with you. You are getting so strong & your kicks are so fun. We can sit there & watch my belly twitch & we just laugh at you.

This week has been a lot of change for us & we thank you for being such a trooper. We have become a family of 4.5 this week. We have our cousin Kingston living with us for a while. He is the cutest 3 year old boy with such a great personality. He really likes you & frequently asks about baby Zoey sleeping in my belly. "Is she ready to wake up yet?" It is funny when him & Hallee are both talking to you. You are going to love playing with the two of them when you get here.

Praying for you little girl! We are blessed to be your parents & can't wait to see your cute face here in a few weeks. We love you most Zoey!!

23 Weeks!


Mango happens to be one of my favorite fruits so I have been admiring how big you already are every time I eat one. We visited the doctor this week for our regular check up & all is well. You heartbeat was very strong & perfect. The doctor was laughing because you would not sit still, I think you could hear us talking about you. We are blessed to have such an awesome doctor.

Our awesome friends the McCawley's found out that they are having another little girl too!! It is SO much fun to watch Hallee & Kara play together I just can't wait to see the 2 of you girls have the same unique friendship. We are extremely lucky to have them in our lives & share this journey of growing our family together. I am still in shock that all 5 of my girlfriends who are having babies are having girls. CRAZY! It will be awesome for you to have fun girlfriends.

Every night before we tuck Hallee in bed we pray together as a family, it is such a sweet moment. I pray you know you are becoming part of an extremely close family who loves & supports each other. Also know that your big sister is slightly obsessed with you, she kisses & rubs my belly everyday. I look forward to the day when she gets to hold & really kiss your chubby little cheeks. Zoey you are cherished, we love you SO much!

22 Weeks!

Little One!

WOW you are already a pound & as long as a squash. I feel like for as big as I feel you should weigh more than that but I will take it. I have finally given in & started to wear some of my maternity clothes & it is so much more comfortable. I have to say that I don't have many to choose from so I only wear them sometimes, jeans & rubber bands are still my friend right now :)

This week your uncle Ryan got engaged so that was exciting news for our family. They are going to be looking to get married sometime next year so you will for sure be around for the big day. I can't imagine the day that you & your sister are old enough to get married. I pray that you find a man that loves & cherishes you like our Savior does. I know that the Lord has some amazing person in mind for you right now & that is lovely. Only He could pick the perfect match for our little Zoey Ryan.

We have another doctors appointment next week so we are looking forward to hearing your sweet heartbeat. Stay healthy in there, it is a yucky time of year out here...everyone is getting the flu. Thankfully daddy has been the only one that has caught anything. Love love love you sweetie!
