Baby Shower time and sickies

Hey! Sorry it's been awhile..
Time seems to be going by so fast!
Ryann is still loving school. She is now ready for Friday to come because she gets to sleep in ;0) The kid is just like me, hard to wake in the morning, and loves to sleep in! She has been enjoying doing her homework and helping pack her lunch for school. Going to her school's basketball games these last couple weeks have been really fun for her and us. This year both girls and guys made it to CIF. Ryann and Reagan both love watching the cheerleaders and cheering for the players. One of Ry's teacher's has a daughter on the team, so she gets excited to sit with her teacher instead of
Reagan loves her mornings with mommy. We are usually out and about together until we pick up Ry. One of Reagan's favorite things to do is go to the Living Desert and watch the mini trains. She loves trains!! Last week I took her to chuck-e-cheese at 10am and we had the place to our self. The maintenance guy was testing all the rides and games, and they kept spitting out he let Reagan have them. We left by 11:30 and had over 200 tickets, and I didn't spend any money on tokens... Reagan pickes out a prize for her, and Ry, it was so sweet.
Last weekend I had my baby shower. My friends Meg and Farah, and Sister Leanna threw it for me! They did such a good job too. It was outside, sunny and perfect weather. I got some great gifts, and I have already washed, put away and organized everything ;0)
Later that night Hugh and I went to a charity dinner/auction on Palm Springs. I wasn't feeling well by the time I had to get ready. When we got there, I felt horrible and my throat felt so sore. I ended up completely loosing my voice and couldn't speak AL ALL! Hugh was taking me around and introducing me to all these new people, and I would just (Hugh did mention to them that I had lost my voice.) I must have met about 20 people that night, and never said a word~!
It wasn't until Tuesday (3 1/2 days!) until I got my voice back. It was so strange to whisper to the girls, and not speak to them. I did notice however, that the girls stayed so quiet! They were even whispering back to me when they was really cute. But, I'm feeling 100% better.....but Hugh is sick now :( I made him some homemade chicken noodle soup (recipe from my mom. The best ever!!) and he is getting some much needed rest. Hopefully by tomorrow he will be feeling better.
Well, I cant believe that we're about 3 weeks away from my due date. I can't believe how fast these weeks have gone by. My midwife Karen, came to our home Wednesday and discussed the "birth" plans. We are all set for baby to come. I get really anxious thinking about the homebith. I cant wait to post up pictures and my write about the birth story :)
Anyways, it's getting late, and I should go check and see if my sicky hubby needs any water or Tylenol..

Hello There ;)

Well, Ryann has survived 2 weeks of school already. I'm sure "surviving" is wrongly said because really, if you ask her, that is her favorite part of the day. She is going Monday-Thursday till 12:30. Last Thursday I said, "Ryann do don't have school tomorrow, it's Friday!" She told me, "How boring!" Yeah...she loves it ;) I love picking her up each day, and hearing her stories about how it went. She is learning so much already, and making so many new friends. Reagan and I have had some great time together as well. She is a funny girl! As we wave good-bye to Ryann and Daddy in the morning she tells me, "Just Reagan and Mommy" ahhhhh

For Ryann's bday we went to Disneyland and had a great time.(till the Aunt Rosie and Uncle Gary came as well as our friends Priscilla and Josh. They also have two girls, and watching them play was too cute. As we left the park that night we realized that Ryann was supposed to get a special bday gift, but didn't :( It's a really long story, but if you want to know more Hugh posted it all on his

I am now about 6 weeks away from my due date, and getting anxious! My midwife is going to be coming out in 2 weeks our home and discuss our birth plan and go over alot of details about the big day. My tummy is feeling extra full these days, I can tell he's getting big! My baby shower is coming up here on the 21st. My friends Meg, Farah and 2 sisters are throwing it for me. Having a boy is so different. It's so much fun to see blue and green for a change!

Well, time to get back to life ;) I'll update again soon!
