Starting out on a big day

All ready to go to school
She looks like such a big girl!!

Well, I have decided to jump on the "blogging bandwagon" and start a family blog. There are going to be many changes to our family in the coming months, and I thought it would be fun to include all of our family and friends that are spread out across the country.

First of all, we are expecting our second child at the end of October. I just scheduled my c-section for October 22nd at 7:15 am. First of all, when I asked for the earliest time possible, (since I didn't want to spend the day hungry since you can't eat beforehand) I had no idea they did them THAT early. Oh well, it will be nice to have a full day with our new little boy. Secondly, it was very wierd scheduling our child's birthday. My c-section with Mikayla was unplanned, so this has been a very new experience for me. I have kind of been procrastinating (what's new...) getting everything ready for our little arrival. We just finished painting Mikayla's new room, but we still need to get the furniture before we can move her in and paint the nursery. Hopefully, this little man will sit tight and wait for his scheduled arrival. Otherwise, I don't think I will be ready.

Another thing of note, today was Mikayla's first day of preschool. She was absolutely giddy this morning as we got ready. You could tell she was very excited. Jeremy and I drove her to school and dropped her off in the carpool line. This was very hard for me! I must say she faired much better than her mommy. She was a little apprehensive at first, but there were no tears or screaming. I on the other hand, held it together until the door was closed. Then I started crying. Between being pregnant and little emotional anyway it was bound to happen. I have to say, however, it was nice to get some work done around the house this morning without a "little helper".

Well, I will do my best to keep this thing updated for everyone. Talk to you soon!
