Grace's 2nd Birthday!

Grace had a wonderful 2nd Birthday! She woke up to balloons in her room, presents, and a pancake breakfast. She got an activity table and wasted no time using it...coloring, stickers, reading books. We played all morning and then had a party that evening.

Her party was Elmo themed. Magaw. Papaw, Grandma, Papa, Tammy, John, Jessi, Sam, Josh, Sam & Laney all came to celebrate. We had a great time!

Schwengel's September

On Grandparent's Day, Grace & I met Grandma & Papa at Mt. Vernon's park.

Grace had a blast!

Then we went over to Magaw & Papaw's to see them. Grace & Magaw like to sweep together.

We traveled up to Flora for the ever famous Appleknocker festival. She pet the goats & bunnies, made her hand-print, got a balloon doggie and her face painted.

John & Sara were also home for the weekend. We had a good time outside.

Grace is just so much fun. Her personality is wonderful (I know...biased). She is saying all kinds of things... "What's happening?", "I wanna pickle...a pickle", "I wanna taney...a taney (candy)", She responds to a question with "I do!" or "I don't", Whenever she has something...say crayons or a snack...she wants to make sure everyone else in the room has some too...very giving girl. We both died laughing tonight during her bath...she's so avoid getting out of the tub she has to go "swimming" while the water runs out. She still isn't a big eater...although she'd eat herself sick on pickles and olives.

Andrew is one busy guy. He is working full time as dispatch for SIU police and taking a couple of classes from John A. His schedule is dumb...classy word, I know...but it is. He has Wed. & Thurs. off (which are 2 of my work days) and works 3-11pm Fri, Sat, Sun...and 11pm-7am Mon. & Tues...yuck & it gets worse...class Tues. morning after an all night shift and then class twice on Thursday, conveniently 9hrs apart! So, needless to say, we barely see each other but try to make the most of the time we have. And I'm sure all of you who are hunter's wives's bow season...

My pregnancy coming along, I suppose...16 weeks today. Still haven't officially felt the baby kick...but I'm ready for it! My "evening" sickness is much better...hopefully gone for good. I have an appointment on Tuesday. We should set up an ultrasound for the end of Oct. or early Nov. I will update then!

Labor Day

It's such a beautiful day! We took a walk down to the fairgrounds & I actually remembered my camera. Enjoy!

In case you haven't heard...We are expecting! A new baby will arrive sometime around March 19th. We are very excited and hoping for a less eventful pregnancy. It has been pretty awful so far for me...lots of sickness and other awful things...but we have made it through the first trimester and get to hear the heartbeat tomorrow.

Good Times

This is Gracie little friend, Laney. The girls had lots of fun splashin' around.

She's not in pain...despite the expression.

Grace and Dada before Rebecca & Jason's wedding. She looked so sweet...

Grace & I met Grandma & Great Grandma in Mt. Vernon for lunch. Then Gracie got to go home with Grandma for a few days while Momma works. They have so much fun together...but we miss our baby terribly.
