Kelly's Korner - Show Us Your Singles

I am bringing back the blog for one more post. I am linking up with for Show us your Singles.

Meet my sister, Kyle. She is 28 years old, an OU grad, and she currently lives in OKC. She is #3 out of 4 girls, and she has 9 (!) neices and nephews. Kyle currently holds the "favorite aunt" title in our family. Kyle is an avid sports fan, whether she is cheering on OU or the OKC Thunder. She enjoys playing on a co-ed softball team, cooking, reading, and traveling. Kyle is involved in her church, helping out wherever needed, but commonly with the women's and children's ministries. She is one of those girls that can be cheering on the football team with the guys one minute, and then dressed up to the nines the next.

Kyle has previously worked as an editor at a small publishing firm. She has had the unique opportunity for the last 4 years to work as a nanny for a family of 3 small kiddos who lost their mom to cancer. Her time as a nanny is coming to a close, as they won't need her for much longer, and this presents an exciting opportunity for Kyle.

I did get permission to post about her, but she is probably slightly embarrassed knowing that I am doing this! Kyle can be shy initially, and I think that this would be a great way for her to meet a possible Mr. Right. Leave a comment if you think you have a match for her!

No excuse

No excuse for my poor blogging skills. Not sure why I even pretend that I am good at blogging! I do have some new pictures of Cooper and Britton, taken about 2 months ago. I guess that I use the term "new" rather loosely...

Website that you MUST check out.

This is the dream life...

I just taught Cooper how to "correctly" use his underwear so he can go potty without taking all of his clothes off. The kid thinks that he is in heaven with this new invention. That's why the picture is on the back of the undies..who knew?

oh, for the record, he thinks that he will just "leave it out" for the next time he has to go potty. Mind you, I did teach him how to put it back...

What a life. :o)

You know you've run over a skunk when...

Friday night we were driving home from a little get together when we accidentally ran over a skunk. Neither one of us had done that before, and can I say that from now on we will do whatever it takes to not do it again. Seriously, the smell associated with a dead skunk is terrrrible. We can still smell it despite our attempts to rectify the situation. ugh.

In other news, Britton Thomas joined our world on Jan. 15, 2009 around 7:45ish. He weighed 7lbs 14 oz. and is absolutely precious. We loved our stay at the hospital in Decatur. They are awesome there! Britton is still doing great, now almost 2 months old (already??) and most likely over 10 lbs. He loves to eat and talk and smile. Precious! He has not had a bottle yet, which we are all impressed with, especially knowing what type of eater his big brother is. Britton, I have a feeling, will be much bigger than Cooper. He is sleeping well at night, which I am extremely grateful for!

Cooper is a great big brother, who loves to love on his little brother. He sometimes likes to hug a little too tight, kiss a little too long, and lay on top of baby Britton as he calls him. I have a feeling he will be a tough little boy after Cooper is done loving on him! Coop is growing so much, he seems enormous compared to Britton! He is doing puzzles like it is no big deal, and he comes up with the funniest things to say. He has a great sense of humor. He is definitely missing his friends and familiar surroundings from Lubbock, but he has adjusted pretty well. He has been asking if we can go back home more recently, but I can't figure out what he is referring to. We took him by our old house in Lubbock (which the sale was completed a week after B was born! wahoo!) and he was very confused and said he didn't know where we were. So, who knows what he is talking about.

Anyways, things are going great here in big D. Just trucking along, planning all kinds of fun stuff for our youth group. We are looking forward to a little bit of a spring break, and we might even see Disney on Ice!

Finally...a baby!

Well, we finally have some good news on the baby Britton front! We are having a c-section on Thursday morning at 7:30. WOOHOO! I am so ready for this pregnancy to be over. Once we found out that I had the protein S deficiency, it has not been fun. I have had to have shots everyday, and I will actually continue for 6 weeks post partum. The shots help thin my blood, so they are literally life savers, but they are painful and cause some crazy bruising. Next time around I will have to do the shots for the full 9 months and 6 weeks post partum...yuck. Anyways, 2 more rounds of the bad shots and then on to the better, different kind of pain shots. Lovely.

Anyways, God has definitely showed us that he is in control in all of this, which we really already knew but has been magnified. Needless to say, I have never been more read to deliver. Hopefully someone will post some pictures on here or facebook quickly after Britton arrives!

Good Grief...

So, I am terrible at this. Life is crazy, what else can I say?

Things are going really well. We are anxiously awaiting the birth of Britton Thomas, which will be sometime in Jan. I am growing like nobody's business, but feeling decent most of the time. I have started to swell at an abnormal rate, which had to be checked for blood clots today, but everything is clear. Hopefully we will find out what is really going on soon, I am in pain.

Cooper is doing well. He has adjusted to life here pretty quickly. He is growing up so quickly it is crazy. He loves being with daddy as often as he wants since Clint's job is pretty flexible. He cannot wait to be a big brother. He loves to just lay on my tummy and rub it and talk to Britton. It is so sweet, I can't wait to see them interact once Britton is out and about.

We are still waiting on our house to sell, so please let anyone and everyone know that it is available! We are considering renting the house, so if anyone wants to rent it, let us know. We would really like to be in an apartment by the time December rolls around. I miss our things that are still packed up! ;o)

Not much else is going on, as long as everything goes as planned, we will be in Lubbock for Carol of the Lights, which I am super excited about!
