Baby Girl

So according to the sonographer, baby number four with be our third girl~!  Good in the sense that we have totes upon totes of girls clothing, especially since I went overboard with my first and bought way more than she would ever wear, but I do feel a bit sorry for my 1 boy.  I guess he and dad will have to stick close! This pretty much requires us to add a second level (and second bathroom) to our house.  Maybe even 2  more bathrooms.  I am excited, despite feeling a bit sad for Rory.  I really always felt like I would do better with girls, and my little man and husband are more than enough boy for me : )

Now for the picking of names.  I like unusual names, but ones that aren't way out there.  My children are as follows:  Tabitha Rose, Rory Daegan, Ember Madison    We have a much easier time coming up with girls names, however since we have already used two girls names that we both agree on, I think this time around will be harder.

If anyone has any ideas, feel free to share : )  We could use all the help we can get!

It's finally over!

Tax day has come and gone and I survived!  "Busy Season" as we accountants like to call it, gets harder and harder for me each year.  I miss so much time with the kids and when I am able to be home with them, the stress of work lingers or my mind keeps wandering to something I need to do when I go back.  Now, though, another hectic deadline has come and gone, and I will be readjusting to my part time schedule in a week : ).

I am happy to have some family time ahead of me.  There are also a ton of things around the house that I want to get done before the baby comes, so having more time at home will be perfect!  During the past two weeks, we were able to extend the old nursery out into a larger room for my two girls to move into.  We worked hard and were pretty much exhausted by the time we were done.  It still needs some finishing touches (moulding around the ceiling & floor and the window needs to be framed in), but for the most part it is done!  We got the girls new bed (thank you Beachbody) set up and they love it.  I am impressed with the quality.  It is one sturdy bed set and has tons of storage!  It was well worth the money I paid for it.

The picture above doesn't do the bed justice, and my camera got dust in it at some point during the renovations.  I am very pleased with it though.  Once the room is completely finished I will post more pics.  If your looking for a good solid bed with lot's of storage, check out
They have many different variations of the bed we got for the girls.
