We love to watch the hummingbirds that visit our feeder. We were surprised that they were so busy at the feeder since it was raining so much, but it didn't seem to bother them.

The hummingbirds stopped coming around as much as they were since they were nesting.

Now we have more that are coming around. We have a new feeder for the window, but it is hard to get pictures of them using it. They seem to use that feeder more as the sun is going down.

They are so tiny that they just amaze me. The babies we have coming are very tiny. We had two males fighting over the feeder the other night when we were on the deck. We couldn't believe the sounds they were making.

We have made it to 20 weeks!

On July 6th we had our 20 week sonogram to make sure our little miracle was growing ok. We found out that everything was growing normal and at the right speed. We also found out that we are having a Girl. She is very active. She was moving so much during the sonogram. It was so much fun to watch her. She had her feet on her shoulders for most of the sonogram and her little hands and feet were going like crazy.

We love you Baby W!!!

What A Miracle!

Chris and I have been married for 17 years. We have been through many rounds of Clomid, have had test after test done on both of us, have been through months and months of infertility treatment and have tried In Vitro Fertilization all with no luck. We both thought that us having a baby was never going to happen. We thought that the only spoiling we were going to be able to do was to our 4 nieces =)

Well, life has been crazy in our house for the past 14 weeks. Yep, we are 14 weeks pregnant. All we can say is that this is a huge miracle. We are both beside ourselves. We don't know if we are coming or going. My doctors are watching me very closely and everything is falling into place. The baby is doing wonderful. Needless to say we are overjoyed and our family and friends are so excited for us.

We will keep all of you updated as things progress.

Perigee Full Moon!

Chris and I went out for a short drive last night to get some pictures of the "Super Moon." It was amazing how close it seemed and how bright it was. Shortly after taking some pictures, it was covered by clouds and we came home. Not sure if the man in the moon ever showed his face again last night.

Did you get a chance to see it?

2 friends and co-workers of mine had a house fire on Sunday and lost everything. They have two boys and no home. Everyone at work has been collecting what ever we can for them.

I was at Mom's today getting some clothes she had for the mother of the family and mom asked if they needed a highchair and a pack n play. I texted my friend to find out. While waiting for a response, I found out that Jerzie would be getting off the bus at Gramma's today, so I stayed so I could see her for a few minutes.

Needless to say, Jerzie didn't want me to leave so I was there longer than I had planned. Not a big deal since I don't see her as often as I should. I was getting ready to leave and I asked Jerzie if she would close the door behind me. Of course she wanted to know what was in the bag, so I told her about the fire and what had happened. She said "I wish if I could help" then shut the door.

I was walking to my car and my phone went off. It was a text that said my friends could use the highchair and pack n play, so I went back in to Moms to get them. Jerzie wanted to help me bring the stuff to the car, so I gave her stuff to carry. She said to me "the baby lost all of his toys?" I said yes he did. That was really bothering her. I told her the little boy was the same age as her sister and that he had an older brother.

We went back into the house and Jerzie went running for her toy box and said "I wish if I could give the baby some of these toys." Gramma and I explained to her that a lot of people were helping the family and it was really nice of her to think of the little boy. We also told her "maybe you have something at home that you and sissy don't play with anymore."

I emailed my sister in law when I got home because I wanted her to know what Jerzie did. They are going to see what they can find that the girls don't play with anymore. Just a reminder, Jerzie is 4 years old. Are you helping those in need around you?

Jerzie Shea we are so proud of you!!!
