It's A Boy

So I just got off the phone with my sister Rachel & we decided that I would be her DB (designated blogger) and update her blog once in awhile. DB kind of sounds like she's too drunk to blog but I assure you that she's given that lifestyle up when she entered into the second trimester of her pregnany. Sure hope that doesn't affect baby Achilles motor skills. Just kidding, they're no longer naming him that. After careful thought & consideration David let go of his dream to have a Greek Warrior for a son & is trying to come up with a more sensible name (and can I just say, thank you heavenly father). She said that I could tell what name they came up with but I'm not going to because there are always baby name stealers out there & I hate that worse than, I don't know, the name Achilles. Anyway - she seems happy & maybe that's because she sees an end to living in Avon. They'll be moving to Rexburg, Idaho at the end of May and hopefully they'll like it better. I think that's about everything we discussed besides my exciting life which you can read about on my blog - it's like I'm using Rachel to promote my blog. Why would I do that? I have no idea, not like it does me any good or bad for that matter. Now I'm just rambling. Hope you enjoyed it. Until next time my fellow Shelley Fans!!
Lance just loved his baby cousin Kendra. He just couldn't give her enough hugs & kisses while they were here. It was so cute & made me a little nervous. I have this fear that one of the toddlers are going to poke her eyes out. I know, it's weird but it could happen right?

My Handsome Boy

So Lance is 16 months, & I finally had his pictures done. My sister did these, & Lance was such a busy body, but I think they turned out really cute. And I love the ones where he's crying--we have a lot of those. :)

Just Some Pics

Lance & the cousins at Halloween

My cute little elephant

Lance's 1st birthday--of course the wrapping paper was the most entertaining

My clean little boy did not want to get his hands dirty in the cake. Oh, how sad when Dad tried to get him to taste the cake.

Lance's biggest fears--grass, bubble bath, & snow. How horrible!

Hooray! I'm blogging!!

I feel so detached from the world when I can't blog. Okay, maybe just detached from wonderful family & friends. I love to hear what's going on with everyone & see lots of pictures, so I really miss having my computer & the internet. Right now I'm in Utah (for a couple weeks--without David) visiting our families, & my mom and sisters are insisting that I blog, blog, blog! I don't even know where to start. Pictures? News? Not that there's much to tell.

We're still in Colorado, & I'm hoping it won't be for much longer. I just don't really love where we are right now. And I am so tired of "camping." I can't wait to be in a place with all our furniture & things. I dream of sitting on my couch, eating at a real table, & sleeping in our wonderful bed.

Lance is so big & happy all the time. He is finally walking & beginning to say a few words. He is also very silly--like Daddy. He is David's little shadow. I love to watch them play. Daddy is such a sucker for his little boy.

So the big news is that we're expecting number two in August. Yippeee!! Of course I'm unbelievably excited. We don't know yet the gender of the baby, but I either need some suggestions for boy names, or I need you all to pray that we'll have a girl because David really wants to name this one Achilles if it's a boy. Yes...Achilles, as in greek god. And my wonderful husband is absolutely serious. Well, if he isn't serious, he's been keeping this up for too long. I've said absolutely no to Achilles & am searching desperately for other names David might agree to.

Okay, so now that I'm blogging (like my family is begging me to do) and now they are yelling at me to get off the computer & come visit. I guess there's no pleasing them. :) But I will be back to post some more pictures & stuff.
