Spring and Easter!

First of all I really need to start posting more than once every couple of months, so I don't have 20 pictures to upload each time I post! Now that I am in my second trimester and have my energy back, I am hoping to be a little more consistent. But who am I kidding? In 5 months, I will be adding a THIRD child to the mix! Who has time any more?! Spring is in the air, and boy have we been enjoying our beautiful Texas weather! We really need to take it when we get it, because before you know it, it will be in the 90's and shortly after that in the 100's, so we are definitely enjoying the 70's and 80's while we can! We kicked off our Spring season by going to the Dallas Arboretum with some of the other Mom's and children from our sunday school class at church.

Carter loved the little petting zoo they had!

Sydney wasn't so sure...

The flowers were gorgeous and so was the day! Perfectly sunny and in the 70's.

My precious little girl is not so much an outdoorsey kind of girl (ahem, just like her Mommy!) I'm lucky I got this shot of her on the concrete in between the grass and the flowers.

Soon enough she was crying for Mommy to come pick her up again!!

I think Carter is trying to convince her here that the outdoors isn't so bad...

.... but then he gave up and just decided to look cute!

Here is Carter with one of his best pals Alex.

Here is looking more adorable than ever...

... and here looking as serious as his Daddy!

And in other news that I somehow forgot to share... I am now 17.5 weeks and starting to look quite pregnant finally. We found out at an early ultrasound that we are having another BOY! Steve was shocked because he was certain it was a girl, and I couldn't have been more excited! We're on a roll with the back and forth genders... We will of course confirm this at my next ultrasound which should be April 13th. We found out at 14 weeks, so it's always possible they could get it wrong, but we found out that early with Sydney too, and our little boy was pretty convincing on the screen!

Our sunday school class had an Easter egg hunt for the kids last weekend. Unfortunately the weather wasn't as great that day! We had unbelievable winds that were up to 40 mph at some points. The eggs were flying all over the place and we were all freezing!

But Sydney really enjoyed picking up the eggs and putting them in the basket. One of her favorite things to do, pick things up and put them in something else...

Oh the love...

And then there was Easter! My little guy is getting so handsome and so big! It's hard to believe he is already 3 1/2. And boy are we having our challenges with the three's... but that's a whole other post in itself! :) Carter got to go to "Big" church with Mommy which was such a treat! Daddy was singing in the choir, so it was just Mommy and Carter. He was SO well behaved!

Sydney was so precious all dolled up in her Easter dress!

Shots of the kids together sure are hard to get!

As you can see!!
