Yesterday was picture day at preschool and I hope to show off some good pictures soon. As usual, Griffin posed and cheesed like he has done it 100 times and Carter screams bloody murder. Oh my two totally different boys
I was preparing for a consignment sale and started feeling somewhat queasy so I decided to take a pregnancy test. We had just decided the month prior that we were ready to add to our family but I wasn’t sure how long it would take. I took the first test and it came out the very faintest positive I have ever seen, which of course kept me wondering all day. What in the world did that mean?
I went on about my day and met my mom to run errands and drop off my consignment stuff. Our last stop was Walmart and I picked up another box of tests. When I put the boys down for their nap I took another test and sure enough… a slow positive. Still not fully convinced I took the third and finally decided it must be true! I called to tell a friend and vowed to keep it in as a surprise for JR for our anniversary that was in 6 days.
My secret lasted all of 36 hours and I broke down to tell JR Tuesday night. Poor hubby was so tired after waking up at 4am and must have thought I was insane because “I just had to give him his present early and get it on video.”
Two days later we shared the news with our boys. Carter of course has no clue and poor Griffin is going to be disappointed if he has a baby sister. “I want a baby brother, I don’t want a baby sister!”
We were going to drop the boys off for our anniversary staycation so we were able to tell the grandparents then. Everyone was a bit surprised that we really were doing it all over again… but excited
This 7th year of marriage brings a new baby to our family and I couldn’t be more excited that God has blessed us again as parents. So blessed to call you mine. So blessed that God chose you for me. So blessed to share this amazing life with you.
I love you more than you’ll ever know, Your Bride
Last week we went to the TN Valley Fair. Although it was an extremely HOT day we made our way around to check out everything and had some fun.
The boys thought they were too big on a real tractor!
We saw chickens, bunnies, sheep and cows. The boys were amazed at how close they were to the animals!
Their favorite part was the petting zoo and both were very brave feeding the animals.
The best part was what they chose to take home… wrestling masks
We had a family celebration for Potts’ birthday a few weekends ago and what a reason to celebrate! He’s been blessed with 70 wonderful years!
Pottsy is always trying to be funny and so while we were singing to him, he sang to himself, “Happy birthday to ME!”
The birthday boy
With all the great grandchildren. Our family keeps on growing!
Mimi and the newest addition, sweet Miss Ella!
The birthday twins being loving to each other
The adorable Cade Jackson, who has been “adopted” into the family.
Mimi and Potts have lived in the same house for ages and crazy enough my best friend from high school now is their neighbor. Mimi is now a working woman and watches her son Cade while JD teaches… and she LOVES spoiling him!
I’m so lucky to have the grandfather that I do! I love you my Pottsarelli!
