Cheerleading Camp!!

Kylie attended her first cheerleading camp June 12-14 at Catholic Central High School. My sister-in-law, Amanda, is one of the head coaches for the varsity cheerleading team so Kylie got to go and find out all of the cool things that "big" cheerleaders do, as Kylie says. There was a preschool division that Kylie participated in and she went for three days, 2 hours each day. She learned a couple of cheers but most of all, had a lot of fun! The varsity cheerleaders helped coach the kids and her coaches were Lauren and Mara. To this day, she still talks about them. They are way cool in her book!

On June 14, all of the cheerleaders in the cheer camp got to perform their cheers. Aaron, his step-mom, Julie and I all watched with such delight as Kylie took center stage!! Julie and I had tears in our eyes! Well, she didn't really do anything but just stood there-I guess she was a little awestruck at all the people but I couldn't have been happier and more proud of her! It wasn't until about a day after her big performance that she started jumping around in our living room (with just me present) and shouted her cheers at the top of her lungs! She will only do her cheers if it is just me there, she won't do it for anyone else, silly girl! We are very proud of her and know that we have a future cheerleader on our hands!

Aunt & Uncle!

Aaron and I found out almost a month ago that we are going to be an aunt and uncle!! Aaron's sister, Amanda, is pregnant with her first child and we are six weeks apart from each other. We are so excited for Matt and Amanda and couldn't be happier for them. They are very special people and they are going to make awesome parents. Amanda is due at the end of January and we are so thrilled that our new babies are going to be so close in age.

Amanda and I are going to be taking pictures together with our bellies so I will post them on here soon! I still have to figure out how to load pictures on here. Congratulations to Matt and Amanda and we can't wait to meet their new little one!!

Love, Uncle Aaron and Aunt Katie

Big Decision!

So, we (okay, I) have finally made up our minds and we are going to be finding out the sex of our baby. I am usually great with surprises but I just have a gut feeling that this baby is a boy and if it is, I need BOY things! (I have tons of little girl things already!) Also, my sister-in-law, Lee, is going to be throwing me a "Sprinkle", a shower for this baby. Things were very, very different for me and Aaron so this time we will be able to include all of our families in the celebration of the upcoming birth of our second baby. So since I am having a shower, I want to be able to register for boy or girl things!

I am at 14 weeks today and still feeling a little sick but by now I am quite used to it. The weeks have been flying by already and I cannot believe I am three and a half months pregnant! I will post pictures soon of the ever enlarging belly! Nobody ever told me that with your second pregnancy, you get bigger faster! I look like I'm about 5 months along, not three months!

We are proud to announce that we are expecting our second baby! He/she is due December 17, yikes, a week before Christmas! Needless to say, the holidays are going to be a little chaotic this year! But we are very blessed to be expecting another baby. Kylie is very excited to be gaining a new brother or sister, although she is convinced it is going to be a girl. We keep telling here that God may give her a brother and she's not so sure about that. Aaron and I are debating on whether or not to find out the sex of the baby but we kind of want to be surprised at the time of birth! I keep changing my mind about it so I need to make a decision soon! We'll have another ultrasound at 20 weeks, 2 months away.

I am entering my 12th week of pregnancy and am really hoping that now that I am entering my second trimester that I will start to feel better as the days go by. I have been experiencing extreme fatigue, nausea and back pain. I have a gut feeling that this baby is a boy this time but time will tell. I will add the ultrasound that we had done at 8 1/2 weeks soon! I have to figure out how to post them on here!
