Just the right size for a big girl.

I will keep everybody updated on when and how...
Hope everyone is well!!
Bailey - Even though this dear and beautiful friend has lots on her plate, she finds time to keep in contact and lift me up. I sent her a "belly picture" since she requested one... Her response was to tell me how beautiful I was. (That's hard for me to see, though Jon tells me all the time, but it made me feel so special!)
She also sent a us a life saving gift! A highchair!!! I had a wonderful highchair that we didn't have room for anymore and April was in a booster. If I had known then that we were going to try for a baby brother or sister this soon.. I would have found a way to keep it. You know what they say.. Hind sight 20/20 and all...
Anyway... She sent us a highchair and now I don't have a little girl hugging my legs and singing "Eat? Eat? Mommy Eat?" while I attemp to cook.
Thank You to Bailey and her wonderful family! I love you all!
Amanda - We adore Amanda and her little girl! We go for playdates and she's a great person to vent to. BUT she also does the most wonderful thing about every 6 months... She cleans out her daughters closet and gives the clothes and shoes to April! Most of the cute little outfits you may see April in are from her. She just sent us home yesterday with 2 bags of clothes and a bag of shoes... Oh and an April size potty! How LUCKY are we!!!
Ashley and Jess - These ladies are great friends to have!!! They love all of our children! When we went to Atlanta they let Rooster and Ti sleep over at their home even though they have 2 big dogs (one the size of a horse) and a cat. Rooster got lots of belly rubs and Ti had plenty of cuddle time while we were away. PLUS!!! They gave Rooster and Ti a BATH!!!
They have also claimed dibs on watching April while we are at the hospital with baby brother. And since April loves them both.. I don't think she will mind at all. LOL
Tavia - Dear Aunt Tavia... If she hands us a bag we can be sure that we won't be dissapointed! She somehow finds some of the cutest clothes!!! Here is a picture of a couple of things that we got during our visit.
GranNana and GranPapa - We got to go to Waycross for a quick visit to see family before I can't travel anymore. While we were there my Nana suprised April with a cute little outfit and a vacuum cleaner that sings!
**** I had a feeling that I had left someone out, and I remembered when who when I was getting dressed this morning!!****
GrandMa and GrandPa Robbins - As grandparents.. I'm not too suprised that they want to spoil this sweet little. But I never expected that they would want to spoil ME too.
When we were up for our visit, they bought me 2 pairs of maternity jeans! I have to admit that my old ones were pretty ratty.. I am delited to have my new pants!
They also sent us home with a toddler bed. So April will have a big girl bed very soon!
THANK YOU to everyone!!! We all feel completely blessed to have you in our lives!!
Your child would get a free book every month until he or she turns 5. You can start at anytime before they turn 5 years old. You can also sign up multiple children.
The books are GREAT! Many of them ar classics. Apirl's first one was The Little Engine that Could. PLus.. she got so excited getting a gift in the mail every month. They come addressed to the child. I thougth that was cute. :)

My camera didn't want to work in the aquarium the few times I tried to take pictures. The rest of the time we were enjoying ourselves so much I completely forgot to take pictures. The pictures that did show up will give you an idea of how excited April was. She could barley contain herself... not that I can blame her.. it really was a wonderful trip.
The following pictures are from last night just before bed.

I know that I have mentioned the album to a few of you, but this is a song that I LOVE and gives you a general idea of how low key there music is. I don't often suggest music or cd's... but if you like this song.. I HIGHLY recommend getting it!!!
This song reminds me of my Papa! He is a man of very few words, but when he speaks I tend to listen. I love him very much and hope he gets to hear this song. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YWqjuJMkc

This is what happens when Jon comes home. He calls as he's pulling onto our road, so that I can tell her Daddy's coming and help her up the couch (if she needs it).
Can you imagine a better thing for him to see and hear when he gets out of the car? It's a shame she's not at all a Daddy's Girl. LOL
Tonight he was practicing his golf swing, with out his club, in the living room. April watched him do it a couple of times and started swinging too. Starting with her hands together at her right shoulder, swinging around, and touching her left shoulder. LOL As you can imagine we cheered, Daddy gave a great big "That's My Girl!", and she continued to "practice". It won't be long until Jon is measuring her for her first clubs. :)
As for Baby Brother (aka Thing Two by Ms Stephanie) he gets everywhere a little before I do now. He is very active! We are still having a hard time with names. We can't seem to come up with a middle name for River Robbins. I told Jon we should just name him River Rush Robbins. :) He declined. LOL

She's talking up a storm! Especially during growth sprouts. "Mommy. More. Eat. Please." She will repeat numbers and some of the ABC's... Though sometimes instead of repeating the number she says the next one. She says Please and Thank You and several things have been renamed. Rooster is "Roo Whoo" and Nemo is "Momo". Waffle doesn't come out just right either, but I have no idea how to spell it. LOL
Yesterday, we went for her 18 month check up. She didn't get any shots, but she did get a Tinkerbell sticker, a sucker, and lots of compliments. Her stats are as follows. Weight 24 lbs 8 oz and Height 31 1/4 inches.
We have our first playdate with our new mommy group today. I am taking the camera, so I will try to take lots of pictures. :)
