Loving the 4th!

I was so glad to hear that Center Township was doing a fireworks show cuz I wanted Ashtyn to see fireworks, but I didn't want to have to pay an arm and a leg for something that would burn up in two seconds. So on Sunday night we went to the park and watched their fireworks show. Ashtyn was in complete amazement! I wish I could have got a good picture of him, but I couldn't.

Announcing... a little GIRL!!

We were able to go have an ultrasound today and found out that we are having a little girl and that she is as healthy as can be. No worries at all. She is right on track with size and a little stuborn from what the lady at the hospital said. She did not want to move to get pictures of her jaw and neck taken. Should I be scared already? :) Just kidding! We are very excited for the addition to our family that we will soon be able to meet. At first I was very set on the idea of having another boy and was kinda hoping that it would be a boy since I've already done it. But the more I thought about it, the more I have hoped and hoped that it was going to be a girl. I have never liked flowers and frillies for girls, but found myself being drawn to them while looking at baby stuff the last couple of months. I've also felt from the very begining that it was going to be a girl even though at first I did not particularly like the idea of having a girl. But I am very pleased now that we are, indeed, having a girl. Here she is!!

I can barely pry any car or truck out of Ashtyns hands now days. He loves to go outside and watch cars drive by. And when they do he points at them, stiffens his body, and yells bbbbrrrmmm, bbbrrrmmm, bbbrrrmmm (always three times too)! Any picture of a car he sees he does the same thing and oh boy it is a show when dad plays his Need for Speed game. He sits by dad so patiently and does not move his eyes from the TV. It is so fun to see him so interested and intrigued by something. I love it! Here he is with his dump truck.

The Latest and Greatest!

Wow!! I have been doing a lot of crazy things lately and my latest and greatest was cutting and coloring my own hair. I have a really hard time paying someone 75-150 dollars to cut and color my hair and most of the time I end up fixing it to the way I like it anyways. But anyways, my hair was a little longer than shoulder length and I was getting tired of it, so I studied online on how to cut your own hair and decided heck why not? I can always go get it fixed if I don't like it and it will grow again. I was very nervous, but pleasently surprised with the outcome. Below are the pictures of my new hair do.

I see a couple stragglers that I'm going to have to have Joe trim,
but for the most part I think it looks good.

The do from the front.
Here are some other fun pictures that I thought I would add. They are, of couse, Of my little stud... Ashtyn. I love him so much and am greatful he is in our family :)

Ashtyn LOVES his new Home Depot
apron. He's just like daddy now.

Ashtyn takes his books to the bottom steps and sits
there to look at them. He is so much fun!
