Here We Go Again!

We should probably begin by apologizing to all of those people we have either lied to or just ignored over the past several months. Yes, as all of the dreams and "feelings" have revealed, we are going to have another baby! The official due date is November 1st, however the mother in this situation is hoping to cut a deal for the little joker to arrive around October 20th. Austin does not know of the situation yet and we have chosen not to tell him until we know if it will be a boy or girl. There has been "all day sickness" just as before but it may actually be worse this time around. Austin continues to remind me through his tears that "Only babies and Oscar the cat get sick like that." Whenever we ask him if he would like a brother or sister, he always opts for a sister but continues to insist her name would be Andrew! We will have just a few things to sort out later!

Austin continues to grow every day. We still can't believe some of the things they are learning at 3 1/2. We probably couldn't write our names until we were in school. His favorite sport is golf but baseball is climbing the list fast. Shane is coaching an 11-12 year old Little League team and Austin likes to pretend he is playing "baseball with the kids." I don't know if he will ever weigh over 36 pounds if he does not learn to sit still for more than 30 seconds.

Otherwise, our life continues without much excitement! I think we have enough to keep us entertained for quite a while.

Congratulations to you both! I am happy for you and I am sure Austin will be a great big brother!

I know what you mean about not weighing over 36 pounds!! Ethan has weighed 33 pounds FOREVER and he gets more active every day!!

Hope you start to feel better soon!!!

WOW, that is great Shane and Amber! Rebecca and I are very excited for you. Look out world, there could be 3 T Shane's running around before long. Congrats and we will talk to you soon.

CONGRATS!!! I guess we'll work on baby-induced-cravings on the taigate field!

We have so much fun with you guys during fooball season (ESPECIALLY Austin's Mr. Rob addiction and "cooler-diving"!)...

Glad to hear things are going well, and hope to see you soon!
