Getting Closer

We are getting a little closer to finding out whether this little girl is going to have a little brother or sister! Monday is the big day and I absolutely cannot wait. I have had a feeling all along that this baby was going to be a boy, but I thought the same thing w/Hayes, and she turned out to be very much a GIRL so who knows! This pregnancy is already flying by, but I feel like after I know the big news, it's really going to go by quickly. I scheduled our appt. for early in the morning so we would not have to wait. When we had this appt. w/Hayes, it was late in the afternoon after school, and then they were running late-we won't be doing that again! Boy or girl does not matter b/c we would love either, healthy is our only prayer!

I guess the biggest difference in this baby and w/Hayes is my lack of preparation, thus far. We don't have any names narrowed down, I have not looked at one single baby item, much less any cute bedding for this new little one. There's still a lot of time, and I know that will come, especially when we get settled wherever it is that we're going to be. We are definitely on the househunt now, and so far it's a slow process. It's hard to find exactly what we want for different reasons, but we know the school system where we want to be for Hayes and any other new little Kennedy's so at least that part is narrowed down. We don't want to have to sell another house and move again before she starts kindergarten. There would be no point! We're just waiting and praying patiently and looking FERVENTLY everyday and we're confident that the Lord has the perfect home for us somewhere around here, it just may not be on the market yet!

WAAAARRRRRRRRR EAGLE! So happy the tigers pulled off their win Saturday night!

We are loving this new fall weather and I really hope it's here to stay. Afternoons outside are much more pleasant and I don't feel like we need to rush back in because of the risk of heat strokes! Hayes would live outside ALL DAY LONG if she had it her way. She can be quite the little explorer.

The cool weather on Monday morning threw me for a loop. I'm not quite ready for the fall clothes for Hayes since it warms up in the afternoons, and it turns out that the child has only gained a few pounds since last winter/spring, plus a few inches! Thankfully she can still wear a few things from last season.
If you are in the B'ham area, you probably already know this, but there are 2 good sales coming up this weekend:
Smith's Rosalina Smocked Dress Sale on Friday and Saturday-75% off Rosalina dresses, not sure about boy stuff

OCTOBER 1st and 2nd
8:30 - 5:00

My Little Lollipop is this weekend too-Castles and Crowns, Chez Ami, Kelly's Kids and other brands, all new clothes-and they are less than the retail prices. I'll have to go back and look at that email or you can google if I forget to update this!
Happy Wednesday!
