We don't know if we are having a boy or girl yet.....
The first picture in the last post was from when we found out about Cassidee. I didn't think about it when I put it, and I just thought it was a cute picture of Jeremy.
So, we will definitely let you know when we find out what it is,
which could be February or March. :-)

Happy (late) Birthday, Jeremy!

Happy Birthday, on the 24th, to a great husband and fantastic father! Here are a few of my favorite pictures of him--mostly with Cassidee. I love you Jeremy! Happy 28th!

Just to answer your question....

I'm due on August 2nd.
That would have been helpful information to mention in my last post.
Thanks to all of you who asked.
I'm 11 1/2 weeks and have a dr. appointment tomorrow afternoon.
Cross your fingers we get to hear that precious little heartbeat---
and that Cassidee is a good girl at the dr. office.
I have to take her by myself since Jeremy has to work tomorrow!

A little bit of Christmas and a little bit more....

I'm just now getting some pictures off my camera that have a little bit of Christmas left on them. We did Jeremy's family Christmas the day after and my batteries died in my camera not long after we got there. I really wanted a picture of Cassidee in front of Becky's tree---oh well, next year.

Cassidee, of course, had a great time opening presents. I wish I had caught the look on her face when she walked in and saw her "big" present. She loves her new wagon and we can't wait until it's warm so we can take it to the park!

Cheese! She even opened the rest of her presents while sitting in the wagon.
Then we were off to my aunt's house to celebrate my Grandmother's 90th birthday. We got to see lots of cousins who live FAR AWAY now! Thank you to Lisa for doing Voo-Doo Chicken Feet, or whatever Glenn called it, on me. Evidently it says that I'm having 3 girls (not all at once.....just eventually) even though I'm convinced that's not right....
Lisa also did her voo-doo on my sister Kayla, with her fiance Camron watching anxiously. I wish I could remember what her "prediction" was from Madame boy and one girl?
She did it on Camron just to test the voo-doo. I think it worked---or he had an extra kid in there..... We'll have to watch Camron! :-)
Last week Jeremy, Cassidee, Jeremy's dad, and I got to travel to Shreveport for one night. We don't get to see Nanny and Big Daddy often enough, so this was a real treat for us! Cassidee loved the mirrors in their room!
Check out her forehead. She ran full-speed into a wall and slid down (something straight out of a cartoon)! She had a nasty wall burn on her head for a while.

Luckily it's gone with no trace of a scar!

Cass sitting with her daddy, Nanny, and Big Daddy!
She had tons of fun at their house. She found some matchbox cars and that was the toy of the day for her. She layed in the floor with her daddy and rolled them back and forth (and lined them up). She almost liked the cars as much as she liked getting cans of tomatoes out of Nanny's kitchen cabinet. I wish I had gotten a picture of that!

But, a big thank you to Nanny and Big Daddy for letting us stay with you one night, for letting us "tear up" your house, and for the boat. Oh yeah, if anyone wants to hit the lake this summer, we got an awesome boat from Nanny and Big Daddy!!! Thanks!

Cass woke up one morning with crusty crap coming out of her eyes. She got pink eye and we had a bit of trouble holding her down to put drops in her eyes. We thought we'd try bribing mom said that Cass could put drops in her eyes......that worked fine, but Cassidee still didn't like having them put in her own eyes. Luckily it's cleared and we're done with the drops!

She has a favorite toy at my parents house....a chalkboard easel. It's the one from when I was little!!! She tells everyone to "SIT" and we all draw on the chalkboard. I guess she got a little bored with the outside of it, cause she climbed under and drew on the inside.....whatever!

Another picture of the fun spot on her forehead and her cool rain boots/pajamas combo!

She always has sooo much fun when Grandaddy and Granmommy take her outside to play! Riding the tractor!

Cutie Patootie!

And, playing in the back of Grandaddy's truck.

And last, but certainly not least, here is a little bit more Broom Family news. I didn't realize that some people didn't know that we were pregnant. (Although they'll probably really be mad that everyone knows and they're finding out on my blog....) We've obviously known for a while, but wanted to make sure this one hung on tight for a while before spreading the news to everyone. This ultrasound picture was from my 7 week dr. visit, so you can probably make out our little blob somewhere in there.

Any prayers that are lifted up for our little bean in there would be great.

We're a little more paranoid this go around, although we try not to be, but we know that our baby is in good (God's) hands.

So, I'm sorry to Angie and Kimberly B. for not sending the memo your way!!! We'll have a play group at my house soon---will that make up for it? :-)

Just a funny video....

Cassidee and I stayed a couple of nights at my parents house this weekend. They literally play and keep her up as much as possible the entire time---works for me....I sleep! I never knew exactly what they did when they went and "played" on the computer or listened to music. I learned quickly....

(the video is long and the beginning is the funniest if you don't want to watch the entire thing...)
