After many emotions from shock and being nervous to excited and thrilled we are happy to announce that WE ARE HAVING ANOTHERBABY!!! I know that some of you may have already known and sorry to those that we havent talked to yet. I have tried to keep it on the DL but Adam just cant keep it to himself. I am due the end of January which puts me at about 14 weeks right now. So far things are going well. I am still sick all the time but not near as bad as I was with Andie which is a good thing. Also I havent gained any weight so hopefully I wont get as big this time around but we will just have to wait and see. We will keep you updated on how things are going. We dont find out what we are having until the beginning of September. Adam is really hoping for a BOY and I dont really care all though a GIRLwould be more convenient since I already have lot of girl stuff. Also I would love advice from all you moms that have kids so close together. They will only be 18 months apart which stresses me out a bit.
While we were in Idaho for my brothers homecoming we decided to have Andie's Birthday Party. It worked out great since a lot of our family was in town anyway. Andie had a great time and loved every minute of it. She loved her cake and dove right in. I finally had to stop her from eating it. I didnt want to have a sick baby on our drive back to Utah. She got very spoiled by everyone. She loves all of the toys and books that she got, and of course she got tons of cute clothes! Thanks everyone for coming and supporting Andie on her special day.
I just cant believe that Andie is a year old today. It seems like just yesterday I was in the hospital excited to finally see and hold her for the first time. This year has sure flown by fast. We couldn't have asked for a better baby. She has slept through the night since she was seven weeks old and has never looked back since. She is definitely like her mother and loves her sleep and I appreciate her sleeping for at least 12 hours a night with out waking up. Also she is such a good eater and I haven't found anything yet that she wont eat. Also she is a very calm baby and never really cries or whines. I know if she starts getting cranky all that I have to do is lay her down and she will go right to sleep for a few hour nap. She is quite the busy body now days though. She walks everywhere and I cant keep up with her, she wears me out every day. She also loves to jabber and talk as much as possible. I am just so grateful for her every single day. I cant even remember what our lives were like before her. I love staying at home with her everyday and enjoying her company. We love our baby girl and look forward to spending forever with her! * It is really late so I will post birthday pictures tomorrow.
We thought we would post a couple of short videos of little miss Andie doing what she just loves to do.....walk all over the place. Since a week or so ago she has really taken off and now refuses to crawl anywhere. If she falls over she reaches for the nearest object and uses it to get back on her feet.
Here is another video that I thought was super cute of Andie playing Peek-a-boo.
She's getting so big and has such personality now, it's crazy to think only 2 more weeks until she's a year old! We sure love our little girl.
We decided to take a trip to Idaho for a few days to visit family and friends and go camping. We had a lot of fun camping with my family but it was a little harder at night with Andie. She loved to be outside though and we cant wait to go again the end of July. While we were there we celebrated our 4th Anniversary. I love you Babe! I cant believe it has been so long! We had a really good time together and my mom was even nice enough to watch Andie so we could go out that night. Also while we were there we took Andie to the pool. She loved it! It was so fun to just watch her enjoy it so much. She would put her face right in the water and blow bubbles and just laugh. She didn't want to leave. I guess we will just have to go back very soon. One night while we were there my Uncle called up my family to go on a bike ride. He sells these bikes and was wanting us to all go out and ride around and have fun. We had such a good time and it even put Andie right to sleep.
We are the Stevenson's, we are not diligent bloggers, and will most likely only post pictures and updates about Andie Mae and Elsie Lane. We do enjoy spending time with friends and family, the outdoors, watching movies, and discovering good music. We were married in June 2005. A few years later Andie Mae joined us in July 2008 and soon after Elsie Lane came along in February 2010. Adam just finished school December of 2010, so we're just starting another chapter in our lives.
