My girls....

It's so weird to think that in just 5 months there will be a new member of this family. We are thrilled, no doubt. We can't wait to have another sweet baby, but it's still hard for me to imagine another one. For almost 5yrs now, it's just been my girls! I worry that the girls will be too big to have a connection with this new baby (which I know is ridiculous and won't be the case), I wonder what was I thinking...things are so 'easy' now, we can just grab the girls, jump in the car and go, everyone is old enough to reason with, everyone is old enough to wipe their own butts-ha!, everyone sleeps now. Will I have enough time for 3 kids?! Will I even know what to do with a baby again!? hahaha! Again, I know these are all silly worries, but it's what we Moms do best...worry...about everything! :)
With that all being said, I see photos like this and think...of course, there will be enough time and love and excitement and they will all be the best of buddies! How could you not fit right in with these sweet, fun girls!? They are so excited about this baby, I will have more than enough help from these big sisters! :)

And, a belly pic of the newest Utley. I'm a little over 15 weeks already! HOLY MOLY! Time is already going too quickly. My next appt is next Friday...I will be almost 17 weeks!! It will be time to start scheduling the big u/s, the glucose test-yuck!, etc. I was SO sick until about 14 weeks (just as I was with the girls). But, like a switch, I woke up one day last week and felt like I could run a marathon! ha! I'm sporting a little bump, but nothing to write home about yet! :) In workout clothes, comfy or lose fitting tops, you wouldn't know I was pregnant, but in jeans and a fitted shirt, I have a nice little bump (some days it feels like a big bump-ha!). I am actually excited about getting a bump. I'm sick of just looking like I put on a few lbs! ha!
My predictions, as of now...I still 99.9999% sure that it's a girl (but again, we aren't finding out this time!). My due date is Sept. 9th but I am predicting a birthday of Sept. 13th. (both girls were late, too). Hoping and praying this pregnancy is as smooth and fun as my other 2! I actually love being pregnant and have been so fortunate so far. (I don't usually admit that around other women, but for the blog, I will! haha!)

if you are a Cougar fan...

Oh, to hear my girls cheer for the Cougars! Unfortunately, it is not the North Harrison Cougars and they are purple and white NOT blue and white :(...but i will take it...I guess! ha! :) As most of you know, I coach cheerleading at a college and I teach tumbling. I have also cheered, tumbled and danced since I could walk...probably before. And, have been coaching since college. My Mom used to tease that I tumbled and cheered so much growing up, I probably spent more time upside down and in the air than I did rightside up and on the ground! So, you know I don't hate it that the girls seem to really enjoy it, too. I try so hard to not let what I love and what I do influence them. If Abby wants to take time off of tumbling, we take time off. I have not let them join a cheer squad yet, because I don't want to burn them out or be 'THAT' mom! Liv LOVES, sleeps and breaths it, begs to go to work with me, is a natural gymnasts (we are looking into gyms for her now to see about starting her in gymnastics, learing not only tumbling but bar, beam and vault, too, just to see if she likes it as much as it seems she will). Abby loves the social aspect of it. She loves cheering with her friends at school, going to tumbling classes with her BFF's :), loves the dancing part of it, etc. So, when the local high school had their cheer clinic a few weeks ago, the girls could not wait to go. Of course, Liv was the youngest, but she was so excited she was FINALLY allowed to go! ha! They were excited for their half-time performance at the big high school game.
 I couldn't get many good pics of Abby because she was in the 3rd row back, but she was SO much fun to watch. She did so good.
 This little one was in the front row, and she was THRILLED to get out there.
 Their dance....
 Abby back there with perfect form. Hey, I said I didn't push it on them, but she is my child! haha! ;)

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
