No training wheels needed!

So Matthew decided he wanted to learn to ride his bike without training wheels...he saw a few kids riding around the neighborhood on their bikes that had no training PJ took him out this afternoon and removed the training wheels.

Can i just say that this little boy can do anything he sets his mind to! I had warned him that it probably won't be easy and it will takes lots of falls and boo boo's and he might have a hard time...blah blah blah is all he heard because he got on that bike and took off like a rocket!! Within about 3 minutes he was riding up and down the driveway like he had never had training wheels! I could not believe it. So Daddy thought it was time to take Matthew to the playground so he could try turning his bike and stuff....i thought that called for knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards...LOL

Once again he showed me that he was more than capable of doing whatever he set his mind to...there was no falling off, no boo boo' didn't even seem hard for him! Away he went...and he LOVED every minute of it! He kept saying "Are you so proud of me Mommy??"...well of course i am!! He had no problems turning his bike...and he thought he was so cool riding without training wheels along with all the big kids at the playground!! ;) GO MATTHEW!

I haven't had a "Maddie post" in a while so i thought i would update you on our little Princess! She is in full on terrible 3 mode at the minute...people say it's the "terrible 2's" but i really think it is the terrible 3's...she is emotional, does not like the word "NO!", can cry at the drop of a hat....she stomps her feet and gives the best dirty looks. BUT...we just love her all the more!! LOL She is very excited about becoming a BIG sister...she is very sweet to Lilly already...always wanting to kiss my belly and say "Awwwww...Lilly is soooooooo cute Mommy"...she loves to "help" me with Lilly's stuff, like folding and putting away Lilly's clothes.
She ADORES her new room and is so excited to show it off to anyone that comes to the house...of course i still have to make her curtains for it but once i do i will take pics and post them.
Madison is also going through her "WHY??" phase...i had forgotten about this phase...i remember Matthew going through it too. EVERYTHING is "WHY?"...WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY! That's what i hear all day long about everything!! LOL Although today she has changed it up a little and says "How Tum??" {how come}. LOL
Matthew took the picture of Madison and i today when we were out in the yard playing...pretty good for a 5 year old! He said my camera was soooooooooooo heavy!

He also took my 38 weeks and 5 days preggo belly shot!! My due date according to my DR is June 3rd...but i have my ticker set at June we'll see when it happens. I am READY! The hot weather is coming and i am done being huge...although i have to say that i have REALLY enjoyed this pregnancy. :) I can't wait to meet my new little girl. Amy requested a belly shot so this is for her! ;) Otherwise you would not be seeing my watermelon belly at all...i am not liking the camera these days!! LOL

Gone Fishing

Matthew is nearing the end of preschool :(
He has had a few little field trips lately...his favorite the "Fishing trip"!!
He saved his money to buy his own fishing pole...and was sooooooooo excited to go catch some fish! He wanted to have a fish fry that night for dinner!! LOL {unfortunately he had to throw the fish back in the pond though!}.
Daddy went with Matthew and took my camera to snap a couple of pics for me! YEAH!! Matthew ended up catching 5 fish that day...and now he is hooked! {no pun intended!! hehe...}
He is just growing up so fast...learning all kinds of crazy things lately, just a few months ago he learned how to tie his own shoe laces!! I was so impressed at how fast he picked it up...Daddy showed him about 2 times how to do it and away he went. He just kept practising until he got it perfect!
Just this past week or so he has been wanting to "SNAP" his he has been working on that! LOL Now he is snapping like a champion! He totally cracks me up. I love how interested in learning he is...and he doesn't give up until he's got it. Definitely takes after his Daddy! LOL ;)

Miss Madison is sick :(
She woke up from her nap with a fever...this evening she has been crying and shivering and is still feverish. I am not sure what is going on with her?? Maybe ear infection?? Maybe just a fluke thing. Keep her in your prayers. Poor girl.

We have also started the nursery!! FINALLY!
I am so excited...PJ and Cathy's husband Terry put the carpet down on Saturday {Thank you TERRY!!}...and since then we have moved furniture in there and today we purchased a new crib!! I HATED our old was given to us when Matthew was born and so we just used that for him and Madison...i wasn't planning on buying a new crib for our last baby but this one is a 4 in 1 converts into a toddler bed then into a full bed...and also a little bench! So i figured it would come in handy! PJ started putting it together tonight, it is so cute! i will share pics of the nursery and Maddies new big girl room when they are all done. :)

So...Matthew lost another tooth! The second one became loose just days after he lost his first one. It took what seemed like FOREVER to fall out!! LOL But it came out this past Thursday while eating pizza :) He was pretty excited to get another dollar from the tooth fairy.

Check out these CUTE dancing shoes!!! Madison LOVES her silver dancing shoes that Nanny got her for Christmas...unfortunately the glitter was all coming off them and they were a little big for her...but it didn't stop her wearing them EVERYDAY!! So we took her shopping and she found these little beauties! Every little girls, sparkly, glittery, Princess dancing shoes! She has not had them off her feet since she got them! LOL

Mothers Day...
I had a lovely day...the kids spoiled me, they got me a cute new purse that i had wanted. Unfortunately i was sick yesterday...i have a horrible chest cold and sinus issues and a i spent most of the day sleeping on the couch. But today i was feeling a little they took me out for dinner tonight! :)

Cleveland weekend...Science center!

What a fun time we had in cleveland this past weekend...we got to meet little Miss Ava {angela's daughter}...she is such a sweetheart and completely loved my cute!! First night we just talked and caught up...this was after switching hotels because of BUGS in the bathroom of Cathy's room!!! YUCK! The next day us girls went to Archivers and shopped!! I got lots of really cool new supplies, it was fun to go somewhere with such a variety...the only i didn't like was it was kinda hard to find things...i didn't care for the set up. After a couple of hours shopping we went back to the hotel and picked up the kids and our men {who were watching all the kids!!! LOL} and went to the Science was such a fun place and we just happened to catch the free pass day!! My kids LOVED every bit of the center...they especially loved the play place they had there...i think we will be going back at some point as we didn't get to see everything. Here are some pics from our trip to the Science center.

35 WEEKS and a new do!!

Well some people have requested more preggo here they are, 35 WEEKS!! Can you say "BELLY"!!! LOL Lilly is doing well...growing as you can see. You all have to PRAY hard that she comes the week after Memorial Day weekend so i can have the same midwife i had with my other 2 kids...if i go before then or after then there is only a 50/50 chance i will have her deliver lilly. the other midwife is really nice too...but i really want "MY" midwife!

So as most preggo woman do i got seriously annoyed at my long hair and decided it was time to cut it off!! I wasn't planning on getting it cut this short but apparently my hairdresser is not afraid to use her scissors!!! It was supposed to be shoulder length!! LOL...good thing i like how it came out or she might have had a MAD pregnant lady on her hands!! {oh this is my very best "Elsie" pose!!! hehe...} Well i am leaving tonight for Cleveland..i will update with pics and such on Sunday if i get a chance!! Have a GREAT National scrapbook day tomorrow!!
