It has been so long since I have updated my blog but we have just been soo busy, as you can probably imagine with 2 little babies! Cash and Lanie are doing great, her awful acid reflux that she has been suffering from since she was born is starting to get better and she is really starting to catch up on her weight. Cash is just into everything these days! We really love this age because he is just so funny!
In May we were really busy with Colby's baseball, they had a great year and ended up making it all the way to the final game of the D-II College World Series in Cary, NC. It was a lot fo fun and a great experience for them. They ended up losing the final game 2-1 to Lynn University from Boca Raton, FL. It was a great game but in my opinion in ended wrong:( Colby also had a great season. He got awarded MVP of their regional tournament.
Summer has also been busy, but we are trying to take the kids swimming as much as possible, Cash loves the pool!!!
Hope everyone has a great summer!

Lanie Kate Killian

Lanie Kate Killian arrived on January 8th at 11:00 p.m. weighing 6lbs 13 oz and 18 inches long. She decided to come three weeks early on her own. I had went into the doctor to get my blood pressure checked at about 1 p.m. and started having contractions ten minutes later! It was 10 times easier then having Cash was. Since then we have been back in the hospital twice because she lost ten percent of her birth weight and had jaundice and was having a hard time figuring out how to "suck". Poor little thing still is not where she should be because now she has "thrush" which is a painful bacterial infection in her mouth. So hopefully she will start getting to where she needs to be in the next week or so. Besides that she is such a good baby, really NEVER cries and would sleep all night if I did not wake her up to eat.
Cash really does not pay much attention to her unless she has a bottle and he doesn't... then he tries to get hers LOL. And now she is in his old bouncy seat so he tries to get in there with her!! I think in about a year they will be best buds!

Drum Roll......

We finally decided on a name for little baby girl! After a lot of consideration we decided to go with Lanie! This has been our favorite girl name before we even knew that Cash was going to be a boy. I just don't think I could not go with my favorite name even though it doesn't start with a "C", right?!?! So now IF we decide we want a third child in 5+ years we wont be stuck down with trying to figure out a good "C" name. But now I need some suggestions on a middle name! Right now we like Grace and Christine.
Well right now I should be studying for finals and getting projects and papers done but I am being a big procrastinator!!! I also need to get on my Christmas shopping, the ONLY person we have bought for so far is Cash :/ !!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Thinking Thankful

With Thanksgiving coming up I have been really contemplating about everything in my life that I have to be so thankful for. This year I have been blessed with a beautiful baby boy, a wonderful husband, great in-laws (plus a lot of new extended family:)), and a little girl on the way! WOW That really is a lot for one year. Thanksgiving has grown to be one of my favorite holidays just for the reason that I can really think about all that I have to be thankful for. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends, and make sure to take time to remember what you are thankful for:)
