Plus one more

I have no idea why its taken me so long to blog about the next addition to our family. Baby Smith should make his or her appearance the first week in march which puts me at almost 6 months along. Josh and I decided to be surprised this time around and not find out the sex. Rarely do we have true surprises in life anymore right? We are both confident we know what the sex is. Ryleigh wants a baby sister of course and Carter wants a brother. One of them will not get their hearts desire but I am sure once their new sibling arrives the sex wont matter.

I am much more exhausted this time around, could be my old age or the busy life we lead. I am happy about not going with a doctor this time around and using a midwives group. Had I known then what I know now!

Here's a sneak peek at baby smith.

Happy 7th Birthday Ryleigh!

 We started out the birthday morning with the annual waffle, whip cream, strawberries and candle. She insists on it every year and now Carter gets one for his special day too. AND it was free dress week at school so she didn't have to wear uniforms. We can't believe how fast 7 years has gone by and all of the wonderful things we've seen our little lady do and ways she has grown. We are blessed beyond to have this sweetie in our lives and we are so proud of her and the independent girl she is becoming. Love you RyBug.
Grandma gave her a necklace and charm bracelet. I think she likes them.

The Trinity Trot 5K

Last month Ryleigh did her very first run with her new, awesome, fabulous school. Her Aunt Jess and Daddy did the 3.2 mile run with her and I could not have been more proud. She and Josh only trained for about a mile but she ran almost the entire thing...not so much by choice but I'm glad Josh pushed her to keep going. After the race Josh asked if she was going to keep running with him to which she promptly replied, "nope".  (our next race is in a month, the Jingle Bell Run in Ft. Worth AND she joined the running club at school so I think she may like it just a little bit)
