Mommy's little lady

Close up of her blue eye shadow and pink lips :)

Mommy's other little lady, although, she's not so little anymore!

They weren't too into this picture, but I wanted at least one picture of them standing together.

Only a few months to go!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 sweet eden

I hate to admit it but my sweet little Eden is about as clumsy as they come. I've always known that she would be our first trip to the ER for a broken arm or leg. Well, she didn't break any bones, but the nanny called me at work around 3pm today and all I heard was, "She's OK, but....."

Apparently after they woke up from their nap they were dancing and graceful Eden fell and busted her head against the wall.

Luckily the nanny had already cleaned up her face and bloody clothes before I got home because my heart was already racing from hearing her cry in the background on the phone. WORST FEELING EVER AS A PARENT!!!

At the recommendation of our pediatrician, we took her to the ER to get it checked out. Luckily, since the cut was linear and not jagged, they only had to use butterfly bandages and glue instead of real stitches.

She did great!
Watching TV in the hospital bed while daddy relaxed and the numbing medicine kicked in.
All cleaned up and eating a treat!
She'll probably have a little black eye tomorrow but other than that and a potential scar, she will be fine.

Happy 2nd birthday to eden!

Hard to believe that my baby turned 2 last week but as much as I've tried to keep her little.....she keeps growing and growing!!

Height: 37 inches tall (one inch taller than Ella was at her 2 year old check up!)
Weight: 36 lbs

Precious "It's My Birthday" outfit from Nana. Thank you Nana!!

Of course Ella wanted to wear a tutu too, so we dressed her up for dinner.

We enjoyed a lovely hibachi dinner with grandma, Auntie Ashley, Timmy and Uncle Chris

Ah....teriyaki rice in the shape of a heart with the number 2 on there anything better????

Is it sad that Ella can use chop sticks better than me?

Next came the fried ice cream and weird birthday hat provided by the restaurant. Eden was not a huge fan.

She put it on just long enough to blow out the candle, but daddy ate the fried ice cream so that we could head home for our own dessert.

I feel like a bad mother for not planning a huge birthday party, but we were out of town last weekend (on her actual birthday) and well, it just didn't happen. Therefore, I bought some Tinkerbell decorations and made a cake. :)

There's a reason why David always makes the cakes....

I LOVE her new cheesy smile!

Blowing out the candle

Again with the cheesy smile...

Eating some cake

Not sure what Ella is doing but my guess is that she is adding to the mess on the table by cutting her cake up into tiny pieces

On to present time....thank you for the books and shoes Auntie Ashley!!

Of course Ella couldn't stand NOT helping
Thank you Aunt Mellissa for the cute outfit!!

Before I know it...she will be three!!!!

new york baby!

Last week David and I traveled to New York so that I could attend a work conference and we decided to stay a few extra days to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary!!! David took over 1,500 pictures of people, food and places, but below are a few of my favs that we took of each other. :)

What a cool way to capture what I looked like 5 months pregnant, huh?? You have to look hard, but behind my crazy wind-blown hair you can see the Statue of Liberty!

I SOOOO hope that our son looks like his daddy! He is just super handsome and I love that he chose me!!!

I can't remember what this fountain is called, but we took a bike tour around Central Park and this was one of our stops.

I wasn't sure how this picture would turn out because I asked the one non-English speaking person in the park to take it, but it might be one of my favorites! Way to go non-English speaking girl!!!

Ah - even after 5 years, one house, 2 (1/2) kids, 2 dogs, 2 jobs and a lot of challenges......I still think we make a pretty dang cute couple! :)
Here's to 5 more WONDERFUL years of marriage! I love you babe!!

We're still in shock....

Earlier this morning we heard those three precious words we've been praying for...."IT'S A BOY!" David and I could not be more thrilled and excited about adding A SON to our family!

Proud Daddy

Proud Mommy

I am WELL aware that these are not the "manliest" onesies in the world, but come on!!!!! What little man wouldn't look adorable in them??? My mom and I found them at a cute little boutique in Indiana like a year ago and I bought thinking one day we would be able to use them. I'm pretty sure David hates them, but I might be able to sneak them on in the first few weeks. :)

Now these were not bought a year ago....but rather ten minutes ago! I just couldn't help myself.
Same for these. :)
Anyway, as you can see, I cannot wait to meet him and introduce you to him!

As many of you already know, David and I are expecting our third baby on Valentine's Day and we could NOT be more thrilled!!! This sonogram is way old, but for those of you who need a good smile......

I'm just under 4 months along so we do not know the sex yet, but prayers for a boy would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

We had some Crandall family pics taken today. Here is a preview of some of my favs as I'm sure I won't ever get around to mailing any out. :)

Miss Ella Rae Crandall - 3 years old

Miss Eden Kate Crandall - 2 months away from being 2 years old....hence the refusal to smile!!!!!
Mommy and Daddy - no need to mention our ages :)
