I may be a little behind in the music world because for the first time ever I heard the song "You Are Mine" by the Acapella group Go FISH. All you mommies out there, if you've never heard this song it will bring tears to your eyes when you hear it. It is the sweetest lullaby song! It has become a favorite in our home. Marah and I turn it on and sing it all during the day. If I knew how to put it on the blog I would (maybe I'll learn soon). You need to check it out.
Here are a few pictures of our new baby girl!

To be induced! At last!

Friday - August 15th will be the day! Macy's birthday, unless I labor on until Saturday -yikes. Never thought I would make it to the 39th week, but it looks like it's gonna happen. We are so excited. The sad thing is that I could have been induced Thursday, but that is my big shopping day for the kids clothes at Dittos for Kiddos. Pray for me that night, I'm usually there for 3 hours so I know I will be worn out.
Pray for all of us on Friday, for labor and delivery to go smoothly and for Macy to be healthy and ready to meet us.

Joshua's 1st Day of Kindergarten

My little man's first day of Kindergarten! Wow! He was so excited and could not wait. I asked him what he wanted mommy to fix for breakfast and he said pancakes and eggs. Most days he will probably end up with a Nutri-Grain bar or Pop-Tart because their lunch is at 10:15am-whoa! He usually never eats breakfast anyways, unless it's a Saturday morning at Nana's or Mimi's! He loves to eat pancakes at Mimi's and hot dogs & eggs at Nana's. But I wanted him to have a good breakfast for the first day. I went to wake him up and he hopped right out of bed which is very unusual for him. He is a late sleeper and usually lays in bed for awhile before he gets out.
We picked out clothes the night before and he was a little upset about khaki's and a polo shirt, but I told him after today he could wear his basketball shorts and shirts. Mommy wanted a good picture on the first day - so he agreed.
He loves his teacher and his first day went great! Aunt Carolyn was sweet enough to call me around 12:00 and let me know he was doing good - what a relief. She was so sweet to let me know. It makes things easier on me knowing he is right down the hall from her. She loves to give him kisses when she sees him.
He ran to give me a hug when I picked him up so I was really excited about that. Then proceeded to tell me all about his day. It was great! One of the first things he said was, "Mommy, they put dessert on my tray at lunch." It was so cute! Marah couldn't wait to go pick him up. She was asking to 30 minutes after we dropped him off. She had a hard time with him being gone. She was very sad, but soon she will be preoccupied with Macy I'm sure. It was hard that big brother went off to school and she no longer had an all day playmate.
My favorite part of all this transition was bedtime last night. Every night they both choose a book to read and I usually read out of a Bible book a different story every night, then we all say an individual prayer. We read "The Kissing Hand" because of school today. They both cuddled up with me on the rocker and Rodney snapped a picture. It was an extra special night because Joshua was so excited about school.
