so we are having...

What a day we have had! We have been without a car all week. We found out on Monday that something was wrong with our car and we needed a part that of course the dealership didn't have. So we've been waiting for the part all week, which left us carless. They told us to not drive it so we didn't until this morning, Corey had to get out of the house so he took Miles to get some groceries. Well the car ended up not starting so Corey had it towed to the dealership so he wouldn't have to worry about it. That left him near Biltmore Village with just a stroller and Miles! We had the ultrasound today at 2 so Corey wanted to just stay around the area and just walk. So Corey and Miles had to walk quite a ways towards downtown, where I met up with them for a quick lunch and coffee. Then we walked to the doctor where we had the ultrasound. Miles was quite a trooper considering he'd been up since 5 a.m. with no nap! We're trying to get him back on schedule because he's still waking up at really crazy hours of the night! Well he's totally out right now! He feel asleep in the stroller with a blanket completely over his whole body on the way home. It was quite an adventure! So here are some pics from the day...

And finally...

Yeah, we are having another boy! We couldn't be happier and we know that Miles is going to be so happy to have a brother! They will be so close!!!!! What exciting news!!

In Bed with The Virus

We've all been sick this weekend. not fun! But it's given me some time to lay in bed and play with the video camera that we got for Christmas. Here's something fun I put together.
P.S. if you want you can click on the video twice and it will take you to the Youtube video where you can click on 'watch in high quality' at the lower right... it will look a lot better.

Let's Catch Up

So I know it's been a while since I've posted and I apologize for all you faithful readers (family), but our lives have been somewhat crazy for the last 2 weeks! It's a good crazy though. For those of you who don't know, we are back in Asheville! We decided to come back and move back into our house which hasn't sold or rented! I am very excited to be back in our house, I love it and it's better now than before, because we've redecorated a bit and it's much more cozy! Anyways, I (Shelley) have been back in N.C. for almost 3 weeks now. I flew into Atlanta on the 6th with Miles and then rented a car and headed to Greensboro to spend some time with my aunt and uncle. Corey stayed in Texas for another week and a half to finish up a couple of landscape jobs that he was doing. Corey got to Asheville this past Saturday night after a full day of driving! He left Dallas at 5 am so he could get to Asheville by 8, and of course he made it! It is wonderful to have everyone together again! Miles is so excited to have his daddy back and won't let him out of his sight! So now we are just trying to get back in a daily routine. Corey is looking for a job and has some possible leads, which is a blessing. For now we are just getting used to life back in Asheville which we love, it never slows down and there is always something to do, if we wish! It's been fun seeing all our friends here and catching up with everyone. I am thrilled to be back and pray that doors will continue to open so we can stay here long term. Also, the majority of people know this by now but just in case there is anyone left, we are expecting our 2nd baby in June! I will be 20 weeks pregnant this coming Monday and couldn't be more excited. We are a little nervous about what is around the corner for us, but all in all we are really excited. This pregnancy has been a little different, in that I don't really feel too pregnant yet. I feel just about the same, but don't have much time to think about it this time...ahhh life with a toddler! Miles is adjusting well to being back in his house. He loves his room and exploring in the house. His favorite new obsession is whining at the basement door, he is really curious as to what's down there. Anyways, life is good and we are just waiting on the next step. It's really good to be back in Asheville! Here are some random pics from the last couple of weeks!

p.s we don't know what we are having yet, we will probably know in about 2 weeks but will let everyone know!
