We did have one special event that I thought I would share as my parting post. Father's Day was extra special - we spent 4 hours in the ER.
Now she is twins with her mom!!
I will post again in a month or so - from JAPAN!!

And this is not even throwing in the emotional part of it all. Pregnancy brings its own fun bag of emotions (hormones - whatever!) and then add in moving. Phew - it can be a bit crazy and challenging to deal with the emotions and me. For instance if for a moment thoughts of friends that have left and those being left behind sneak into my thoughts I have to take a minute. Today I walked into an almost empty attic and just about lost it. I love my attic - it was what completely sold me on this house!
I am tired physically and emotionally! Yet the challenge of getting it all done and getting my family on to the next stage keeps me going and enjoying it - well, for the most part!!

(Best looking man alive!!)I can hardly believe that 10 years ago today I married the greatest man ever. He is perfect for me in every way. He is all that I need to keep me sane and going each day. When he comes home to a worn out wife and wild kids, he gives me an extra long hug and then we work together for the rest of the evening and by bedtime I am good to go for another day. What would I do with out him?
What we have done together in the past 10 years:
5 moves (about to embark on #6 - 5 years ago we were just as deep in move #5).
3 children (and 1 more on the way)
Jason's Undergrad classes
Part of my Masters classes
3 years enlisted in the Navy
Commissioned an Officer in the Navy
Officer Candidate School
Completely rennovated a house
Refinished and built more furniture than I can keep track of
and so much more!
Jason, I love you!

Jayce invited his Dad to his school's Special Visitor Day. Jayce requested that he come in uniform, which I knew Jason would be squimish about (he thinks kids are grubbby).

A few weeks ago when I had my ultra sound, as always it was an unforgettable experience. It is always so cool and rewarding to see that little body wiggle, squirm, and kick. I love the heartbeat and the entire experience. I love the anticipation that comes as you wait to hear the tech announce if it is a boy or a girl.
Every time we have gone to get an ultrasound I make sure Jason can come and share the experience and we always have extras. For Jayce, we invited my Mom. For Grahm...well maybe it was just Jason and I - don't remember. For Charlotte, we hauled along Jayce and Grahm. This time I did not want to bring 3 kids to the ultrasound, but as fate would have it - we did.
We brought treats, let the boys have their handheld games and hoped that they would be quiet and behave.
While I lay there having my ultrasound, Jayce is playing a Star Wars game with Grahm eagerly watching. My ultrasound had theme music - The Star Wars Theme Song. And that is not the best part, Grahm and Jayce are singing along with it. Nuh, Nuh, Nuh, Nuuuuh, Nuh, Nuhnuhnuh, Nuh! I had to try really hard to not let my belly shake from my laughing, but it was so funny. I not only was having an experience of motherhood, I was drenched in. I will love this memory of Baby Girl #2's ultrasound.
I love being a Mom!
