3 Sparkles

Madison, Lillian and Baby Button
(Yes I realize this is actually a Lego statue of R2D2 but since it Rob's top name pick for our new baby it seemed only fitting to acknowledge this as the first picture of our 3 kids together :)

A visit with Aunt Nancy and Uncle Kurt

The first part of Spring Break the girls enjoyed visiting Aunt Nancy and Uncle Kurt in Wisconsin.

 The girls liked helping Aunt Nancy upstairs in her office.
 Then they went downstairs to let Uncle Kurt join in the fun.
 A short break to enjoy dessert- root beer float Popsicles.
 Before heading outside to play family football
 It was a great day!

Legoland Chicago

While visiting family in Chicago with Nana and Pa, the girls enjoyed their first visit to Lego land Chicago.

They had a great time.

A perfect picture of our girls- Madison is all smiles and of course Lillian wants nothing to do with the camera.

 Mommy's favorite lion cubs.
 Duplo land- Lillian's favorite of the day. She was quite proud of the house she built.

Hoppy Spring!

Madison and Lillian are quite excited to be on Spring break this week. 
They are enjoying a few days in Chicago with Nana and Pa while Mommy and Daddy are working. Then planning adventures here at home for the remainder of the week. 
It is great to have some family time together.

Reading Fun

Apparently a love of reading is genetic!

It warms my heart to see my girls sitting in their chairs reading. They both love books- as do their favorite stuffed animals.

Madison is currently enjoying Nancy Drew mysteries and Lillian loves Berenstain Bear stories.

Hairspray understudies

They love to dress up and dance along to the movie.

Baby Button Update!

Here is the latest ultrasound.

Button now weighs 14oz (49th percentile) and is growing strong. We were able to see the 4 chambers of the heart, both kidneys, and the cute little fingers.

We have decided to not find out the sex of Button and be surprised on D day (delivery day).

It was one of the hardest decisions for me to not find out if Button is a boy or a girl. I am a planner and this really put a kink in my plan.
But Button made the decision very easy.... during the ultrasound, Button was playing with its feet and made it impossible to determine the sex.

So we know for certain that in July we will welcome a new baby to our family and will be very excited to celebrate a new brother or sister.
