Quotes from my Kids

Me: "AJ, what was your favorite part of the day today?"
AJ: "Well, after recess and dismissal, seeing you Mommy."
Eliana: "Don't worry about it AJ, Mommy is in charge here."
Eliana: (while Jonathan is using a drill) "Daddy, don't screw me!"

Happy Fall!

We've been busy since Mr. Marcus's birth! Jonathan and the big kids went to a campground with our good friend Jim and his family earlier this month for some hiking, fishing and rock climbing. Also jumping in the leaves, pumpkin painting and carving and of course, tricks and treats on Halloween. Check out the Princess, Wolverine and the baby Pumpkin! Oh and Jonathan and I dressed up as a Mom and Dad. ;)

He's here!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marcus Jonathan Burns was born September 23, 2009 at 8:13 pm and weighed in at 8lbs. 4oz. and is 20 inches long. I had seen my OB earlier in the day and was 4cm dilated. He had a feeling I could go anytime. Just a few hours later while at AJ's soccer practice I had a few contractions and knew this was it! Jonathan rushed to the field and we all got home to meet Grandma. Half an hour later I arrived at the hospital and met Dr. Spurrell who checked me out and informed me I was 7cm. So I sat on the peanut and rocked for about 20 minutes and then was ready to push. Out he came shortly after 8pm and about 45 minutes after I had arrived. Nice and quick just the way I like it! So he is beautiful and wonderful and looks a lot like AJ did when he was born. Lots of dark hair and nice olive skin like the rest of the family! So happy our family of five is complete.

Still waiting for the baby with no name.....

"Due date" is tomorrow......no contractions yet just a little pressure. I use the term due date loosely cause I really don't believe in them! At least I'm 4 cm, that's some progress although it doesn't really mean much. Guess I will just use this time to get things done and try and relax! AJ has an open house on Thursday so God maybe Friday is a good day? :)

AJ's 1st Day of Kindergarten

Here he is...the big Kindergartner! His first day was September 4th and so far he really seems to like it. The best parts so far......"Eating in the cafeteria and recess."

September Schedule

I just realized how busy we will be this month. School starts for AJ, the big kindergartner, and Eliana also starts preschool, only 2 mornings a week. She's not too enthusiastic yet but we'll give it a try and see how she does. Soccer also starts for AJ and he's very excited. Today at the playground we brought the ball with us and he was telling the other kids, "Hey you should see me play soccer, I'm really good." Uh uh, and modest too. Also the great minivan hunt continues, much to my dismay. We're hoping we get one this weekend so it can be done with! Car shopping is not very fun in my opinion. Oh and did I mention I'm having a baby in 3 weeks? That may add to the chaos a bit!
