Part 4 - my TWO kids

Here are some of my favorite recent pics of both kids. Abram is such a good brother. He loves to kiss Sadie and hold her hand/arm/anything he can get. Sadie is enamored by her brother. He is the source of constant entertainment around our home. I can't wait to watch these two grow up together.

Part 3 - Sadie pictures

And here is our sweet Sadie! She is now five months old. She smiles, babbles some, has started solid foods, and is such a cutie! Her smile totally melts us. She is sleeping better and likes the Bumbo seat and her jumper. She seems to be showing her little personality more...which is so fun. She also loves to be outside and to listen to her crazy brother talk about everything!

These pictures are are of Sadie in her great grandfather's Christening gown, made in 1922.

Part 2 - The Fair

We had a great time at the fair this year. It was cold and windy, but Abram had a great time riding the pony and going down the big slide with dad. Mom and Dad enjoyed yummy fair food (thank you Penn's and the free biscuit people). Sadie slept the whole time!

Part 1 of "The Catching Up with the Scarbroughs"

Well, we found the camera cord, but then we packed it in a box and moved! Anyway, we've been a little busy, but I am finally committing to updating our blog. It will take many posts, but I'll try to get them out ASAP, while my parents are watching the kiddos.

Part 1 Abram's 2nd Birthday Party (Sept. 6th)

We went to a park and had a bug party. You'll see pictures of the cake, dirt and worms, cousins, watermelon, and the swing. These are some of Abram's favorite things.

FYI - if you leave a frosted cake in the Mississippi heat for too long, the frosting starts to drip off the cake!

Poor Sadie! These are the Jackson cousins, minus one newborn boy, with four more cousins in IL!!!!! Three of those are boys too!

Happy birthday Buster!

Looking for the camera cord

GUYS....I can't find the cord to the camera, so I can't upload new pictures! UGH. We've had a lot going on here. Abram turned 2 and we had a fun bug party for him. Sadie is really changing a lot, and smiling a lot. Too cute! And we've sold our home, bought a new one, and will be closing next week. As soon as we find the missing cord, or go buy a new one, I'll show you all the family and home. Sorry!

Sadie Pictures

We have been super busy lately, but wanted to show you a few pictures of Miss Sadie. She is such a blessing to our family and we (the parents) have grown so much since her arrival. Enjoy!

Can't you tell that they both love this!

Abram loved his spider and has offered this precious toy to his sister

My sweet little girl

A Trip to The Big Easy

We went to New Orleans for my cousin's wedding this weekend. We had a great time visiting with family. Our kids were very flexible and Daniel and I enjoyed the brief getaway.

Our first family photo since the hospital!
He either has his thumb or whole hand in his mouth at all times.

The boys enjoying the pool

Abram walking in dad's flip flops

There is just something about a group line dance you can't turn down!

Me and the groom, Eddie...doesn't he look spiffy in his Class A uniform!

One month old!

Here are some impromptu pictures. Sadie is definitely gaining weight and growing well. She is a good baby, but is a she likes to cry. Especially at night. We are making it with two and are grateful that God gives us energy and that Abram is patient with this transition.

Sadie looks a lot like Abram when he was this age....which is alot like my baby pictures. Sadie's stick out hair has arrived sooner than Abram's did though!

We are home and doing well!

Sadie is one week old today and we are doing well. She is a sweetie pie and we love having "sister" around. Enjoy the pictures!

Please notice that Abram is holding Sadie's hand. I think this is the SWEETEST thing in the world!

This is what Sadie came home from the hospital in. She looked too cute!

Abram meets Sadie at the hospital. His interest lasted about 2 minutes and then he wanted to run in the halls.

7 lbs 12 oz and 20 1/2 in

All are doing well and we should be headed home tomorrow. We'll have more pictures posted later. Thank you for your prayers and love!

What we've been up to lately...

SIGHHHHHH...........This is how we all feel around here.

We've been busy around our house getting Abram into his big boy room and making necessary preparations for Sadie. I'm 38 1/2 weeks and have learned that even in the nesting phase of life, my procrastination runs rampant.

Daniel and I decided to do a lot of "home made" decorating for the two kids' rooms. The sewing and decorating was completed by yours truly, while Daniel built an awesome bookshelf for Abram. I did paint the bookshelf, but Daniel has moved and organized all of the furniture in both rooms.


We have nothing on the walls yet, but we will post more pictures when everything is finished.

And here is what we have so far for Sadie's room...same applies with the walls. We'll post when it's finished.

(I'll change the picture to one of Sadie once she's born.)

In full disclosure, a sweet lady from church sewed this pillow for us...not me.
Anyway, we are getting much closer to meeting Sadie! My next appointment is in two days, and we'll learn about possibly inducing on Monday/Tuesday the following week. We'll let you know when our daughter arrives!

Ta Daahhhh...

Well here I am at 35 weeks and just now showing my face (and belly) to the world wide web. Does this get me out of the dog house with a certain friend????? My next appointment is 5/21 and I'll have an ultrasound to determine baby size and my first of many exams. I feel good but tired most days. I am definitely losing my range of motion by the second and Daniel often has to help push me out of bed in the middle of the night for potty runs. I've started swelling just a little and I'm probably on my 5th bottle of Tums, but's all worth it right? This weekend begins the major switch of rooms at our house. Abram will get a big boy bed and Sadie's room will have some pink added. As we accomplish these tasks, I'll post pictures. The picture below shows you one of Abram's favorite things in the world...the "bowl." Anytime we drive past water (ex: the Reservoir) he says, "Bowl!" I can't wait to get him in the pool this summer!

Maybe the next post will include some potentially embarrassing photo of Daniel. Until then, it's just Abram and me showing ourselves to you dear friends and family.

Happy (late) Easter from the Scarbroughs. We are in fact still alive and well...though incredibly busy these days. We've made it through another busy season with Daniel's work. WOO HOO! We are now in crunch mode before Sadie arrives. Yep, our daughter does have a name...Sadie Margaret Scarbrough. And she should arrive in about 2 months! This has been such a fast pregnancy, but we are very excited about meeting this little girl! Here is a picture from Easter of us. Notice how I managed not to get the belly in this shot! Soon I'll get a belly shot posted that is appropriate for the World Wide Web.

Fun at Grandpa and NeeNee's House

Abram and I are spending the week in Tupelo, and he LOVES to play outside at my parents' home. Our yard/play area is no where near the size and obviously contains far fewer "adventures" for him. Enjoy the pictures.
These three steps to Grandpa's workshop provide hours of fun for Abram.
My favorite picture...Abram's favorite swing and thumb.

Enjoying the "woods"

Abram pushes his toys around like this rather than riding them usually.
