4 years ago today, my water broke.  I remember it vividly.  I was sitting on the couch, watching TV and blowing drying my hair. I finished drying my hair when all of sudden I felt something a little unusual... like, did I just pee in my pants.  Oh my God, I just peed in my pants.  Wait, maybe not, maybe this is my water breaking.  I tell Travis, he calls the nurse line and I call Julie.   She tells me to lay down on my left side and wait to see what happens.  Immediately I heard a loud pop and hung up the phone. Seconds later I'm yelling for Travis (who was probably on hold with the nurse) to walk me to the bathroom because I didn't want anything to get on the bed. As we are walking Travis jokingly tells me to try not to get any of it on the rugs either. I made it to the restroom and then called the nurse line again. They said to come on in.  (If I ever go through this again, I will wait awhile before I go to the hospital). 
26 hours later I delivered this little guy! 

Tomorrow morning I will wake up and he will be 4 years old.

There's nothing wrong with lovin on Ruby Robin and wearing new rainboots on a perfectly sunny day!

 We took Cade to Academy to test ride a new bike! 

 Mama and Cade went on a date last week to Brother's Pizza.  Pizza by the slice and super yummy! 

LadyBird, 8.5 months!  She is potty trained (knocking on wood) and has learned to play "baby" or what other people refer to as "fetch." 

The Valentine Elephant came and visited Cade today. 

Travis made up the Valentine Elephant when we were dating... (I know... and I still married him).
Here's what the Valentine Elephant left for Cade... just a little treat. 

 Ruby Robin is back for the next few days...

And in 2 sleeps I'll have a 4 year year old. 
So sad!
