Back to work

So I was called back to work for a few more weeks, staying until the end of April, which is kind of nice. Today I found out the date of my c-section and I'm happy to say that the new MacKay baby will be born on August 4/08. It's quite a relief to know this time when the baby is going to come instead of playing the long and tiresome waiting game and seeing the due date come and go like it did with Brayden.

We are having some difficulty choosing names for the baby this time, and I've started up a group on facebook to get suggestions from friends and family. The group is called "Help name the new member of the MacKay family" for anyone who would like to join and leave a name suggestion.

This past weekend Brayden had his very first haircut. He still doesn't have much hair, but the hair he had was getting quite long around his ears and neck, so we got a bit of a trim. Now he doesn't looks so shaggy.

Last day of work.

YAY!!! After today, all my time will be spent with my handsome, brilliant, son. And a bit of time in the evenings with my just as handsome and brilliant husband. Oh and waiting for this new baby to come along.

Pregnancy is going ok, I've lost some more weight. I wish it could be this easy other times. Brayden has taken to pointing to his own belly and saying baby. I'm trying to get him out of this, but I think I am just confusing him.

Easter took place this past weekend, and the Easter Bunny was good to my boy. Probably too good. Enjoy the pictures.....

Half way there!

So now I am 20 weeks pregnant, half way there. I had my ultrasound yesterday. It went well, but unlike my ultrasound with Brayden, I have no hint to the sex of this new baby.
Brayden isn't doing too much new these days. Besides new words all the time. This boy never stops talking, not sure who he inherited that from!!
This weekend is Easter and we are really looking forward to the Easter Bunny visiting and leaving lots of surprises for Brayden.

Tomorrow is my 2nd prenatal appointment for this pregnancy. Last week was just blood work and the such. I'm hoping to hear the new MacKay baby's heartbeat tomorrow.

Getting back into it.

So it has been way to long since I updated this blog. August!! Just about 5 whole months!! So much has happened in that time. I returned to work, Brayden turned 1, we had Christmas, I found another new job, and the biggest happening, we are having another baby! The new addition to the MacKay family will be arriving around August 8, 2008.
We are very, very excited!! Well, not so much Brayden, as he doesn't understand what is going on. I am at work now and don't have any pictures to post with me, but in the next few days hope to have birthday and Christmas pictures put up.
I would also like to congratulate Laura, Marko, and Sean Peric on their new addition Emma-Lyn.

Why so long?

I didn't realize that it had been so long since I did a new post! Almost a whole month ago!

We have been up to quite a bit, parades, beach, pools, play dates, plowing match, and Mike had a week's vacation in there.

Mike mostly took the vacation so we could get the rest of the renovations done around the house, since we put the mini home up for sale a couple of weeks ago. No calls yet, but I hope someone is interested soon because it would be so nice to be in a new home by Christmas.

Brayden is growing like a bad weed and doesn't sit still for two minutes anymore. He is standing on his own for a few seconds at a time, he has 8 teeth, (4 on top, 4 on bottom), he is eating anything we will give him, he especially loves blueberries, and he is doing great at drinking from a sippy cup. Oh, and he is getting some more hair. Finally. It's hard for me to believe how fast time has been going by and that he is 9 months old already. He is trying to mimick what we say all the time, he knows what the cow says (moo), he says hi, mom, dada, and hums along to some songs, he is so smart!

So that is about it for now, for the bragging at least! We are heading out to the beach later on today to enjoy the last few days of summer before the weather turns colder.

Brayden's Family

This past Sunday we went to Mike's family reunion down in White Sands. I met quite a few relatives that I hadn't met before. It was a nice time. Brayden also got to meet a lot of family members. It gave me an opportunity to get a picture of Brayden, Mike, Mike's dad Wayde, and his mom, Maisie. 4 Generations.

Yesterday we had some much needed rain, and Brayden and I spent most of the day just lounging around the house playing with his toys. My flower garden definitley looks much healthier since the rain.
