Babies, Babies Everywhere!

My sweet friend Brittney who you might know from here has finally announced she's pregnant!! She started a new blog here to share her pregnancy, which unfortunately hasn't been very pleasant so far. She's been such a little trooper all summer and hasn't had to miss too many cheerleading practices. Luckily she's feeling better and I hope the worst of her pregnancy is over! I can't wait to meet little baby Bolt sometime in February or March!!

You might also remember my sweet friend Suzy who is pregnant and expecting her baby sometime in October! She's had some difficulties with her pregnancy this summer, but is feeling better now and we just hope baby Yates hangs out for a little while longer before making his appearance.

So two of my very best friends are pregnant and due within 6 months of each other! I couldn't be more thrilled to meet these sweet little babies!!!

Back Again

Over the past 3 months I've started 6 different posts but never actually finished one. Since it's been so long, I think I've been waiting to be inspired to create some wonderful, insightful, thought-provoking post. Well, it hasn't happened yet so I'll just write a quick, run-of-the-mill post instead. Here are some things I've been enjoying lately ...

Practice 4 days a week, sometimes 5, but I don't think there's anything else I'd rather be doing. Brittney and I are really enjoying coaching and spending time with these girls. It almost makes me miss high school.

Reliving my glory days.
Brittney's friend Matt (who cheers at Hawaii Pacific) was in town and helped us with practice one day last week. Afterwards, he wanted to "play" (meaning stunt). At first I declined his offer ("I haven't cheered in six years ... I'm wearing flip-flops" ... really meaning "I'm absolutely terrified"). Eventually he convinced me I wouldn't die would be okay. We did just about the simplest stunt there is, but I was still proud I hadn't lost "it" ... not that I'll be joining a cheerleading squad any time soon.

Sweet pups.
Mom, your closet is a disaster!
Don't worry about your closet. Let's cuddle instead!
These pictures were taken within about 2 minutes of each other. Henry is scared of my closet for some reason, but Emma loves it! If I'm in there getting ready, Emma is usually by my side (or on a pile of clothes).

Not doing laundry.
Christopher had to resort to wearing his old referee shirt one evening after work because somebody hadn't washed any of his t-shirts. He swears I agreed to do all his laundry this summer, but I don't recall such a promise.

That's about it. I swear I won't wait as long to post again.
