Poll me...Girl/Boy

I have added a friendly little poll to the right sidebar of my blog. Inspired by 2 recent dreams I've had. In both dreams, we are having a sonogram and we find out that H2 is a ****Little BOY****! In a few short weeks the mystery will be solved until then... VOTE VOTE VOTE! FYI -While pregnant with York I had 2 vivid dreams...#1 I had twins in the bathtub at home both of which were girls & #2 I had a little girl while on a train! I guess subconsciously I was worried about where he would be born... Nonetheless I was wrong on gender! So much for mothers intuition. Until next time -PEACE!

York = professional beach bum!

Orange Beach, Alabama
We have had an excellent time soaking up the sun at the gulf... York and I have morphed into beach bums! York absolutely loves the beach and all that it has to offer: the sand, waves, the sun, and especially his yellow shovel!! We even napped with the infamous shovel. We did not have any oil or "tar ball" sightings and enjoyed the almost secluded white sandy beaches. Dad (Wesley) joined us for the second week and we had a blast. He was such a huge help because I am still THROWING UP! So Wes would get up and feed Mr. York and then bring me breakfast in bed! It was so very nice... I wish I would have felt better to enjoy the time with my boys! On Friday, we headed to West Beach to join my family for a reunion. It was so nice to visit with cousins and Wes was able to get to know some family that live in Georgia. York was the center of attention and was quite the entertainer!! Below are some pictures from our amazing little get away...

too much fun!

Mother's Day at the beach...

I was lucky enough to be taken to the beach for mother's day by Wesley's mother and grandmother. It was absolutely gorgeous... we couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather! Pure Paradise... other than the occasional nausea and a crazy rascal named York running me ragged. It was nice having 2 other sets of hands to help out for the week. We really missed Daddy and were glad to be home yesterday!
We are off to the beach (AGAIN) for the next week and a half... just Wesley, York and I! We are so excited... I cant wait for Wes to see York in the sand and water! Finally he will have a partner in crime on the beach! My idea of fun at the beach is a good book and a relaxing chair... not much conversation and the sun warming my body. Wesley's idea of fun at the beach is CONSTANT entertainment... throwing the ball, playing in the ocean, fishing off the shore, etc. In fact, before we were parents Wes would say, "You are so boring ...all you want to do is lay there... I cant wait until we have a child so I can have fun!" So my dear Wes... the time has come! Start your Engines... because you are in for some REAL FUN! I will keep you blog readers posted on how all of this "FUN" goes... I am sure both boys will need naps after their day at the beach! So we will be M.I.A for the next couple of weeks... I will return with some great pictures of our adventures.
Baby H2 update:
I went to the doctor today for my 11 week 3 day check up... Babies heart beat was music to my ears! It was much faster than York's ever was. Everything is right on track and I go back on June 3rd for the next visit. Then I begin weekly visits for the progesterone shots. This is going to be a long pregnancy!! But I feel much better that we will be monitored so closely! Still sickly but can see the end in sight... with York I was a new woman around 19 weeks! God Bless a healthy pregnancy ... each moment of sickness has the most perfect payoff in the end!
Everyone have a great May!!
