Oh, hey there!!! Remember Us?

Holy smokes has it been a while since I took the time to sit down and update this blog!!!   I am pretty sure we have had 1 1/2 babies since the last update so I have a little bit of catching up to do and that's a pretty big understatement!

So let me begin there ... if you don't know we are expecting baby #5 this winter (mid-November) and we are so excited to have one more (and last) little set of feet running holes in our floors.  I have really enjoyed the last few years of being home with my girls and it has been such a blessing and we both felt a strong desire to have one more little one to make our family complete.  To answer your next question, NO, we do not know what we're having and, YES, we know it will probably be a girl but we'd still love everyone to keep their fingers crossed and say a prayer for a boy so Zack can have at least one ally in our house because right now the poor guy doesn't stand a chance!

I'll be honest, I am not really sure where to pick up so think I will just go back through this past summer and begin there.  We had a very uneventful summer but were able to take one nice long trip to Virginia, DC, and the beach in Delaware and the girls really enjoyed seeing their old friends from preschool and family.  That was really about it.

The big girls started school a few weeks ago and this year Sophia is in 1st grade and Annabelle is in Kindergarten.  I know everyone says it and cliches are cliches for a reason but I just can not believe how fast the time has gone by!  They love school, Sophia loves it a bit more than Annabelle right now but I think it's just a big adjustment for Annabelle because we have all day Kindergarten in NC so she is at school from 7:30-2:45 instead of 9:00-1:00 like preschool.

Outside of school we don't have much going on and we're just counting down for D-Day when the new baby decides to make an appearance.  Amelia and StellaGrace are doing awesome!  I am doing preschool at home with StellaGrace this year and she's doing great.  I'm working on the alphabet, numbers, and right now I'm teaching her how to hold a pencil ... it's a tough job but someone has to do it :)  Amelia has decided that she is in charge and runs the crew of Wyatt Girls.  She keeps everyone in check and yells at you if you fall out of line ... I'm kidding (sort-of).  She is definitely a personality though and does not miss a beat with keeping up with her sisters.  I am so in love that little girl I don't know what I'm going to do when this new one arrives on set.

I am going to work on a slide show of photos from the summer and back to school and post that on here soon so everyone can be up to date on the girls.

I worked on the slide show ... here it is ...

We had a great Thanksgiving. A large part of my family came to Charlotte to spend it with us and the kids.

I pasted the link to my dad's website and you can see the photos there ... there are too many to post.

First Days of School

Well this year is Annabelle's first year in preschool and since we moved they didn't start school until October so here are the photos. Sophia has done great (as expected) but it's her 3rd year in preschool so we we're worried for her at all. Annabelle is bit more shy than Sophia and that might be the understatement of the year but her teachers said she's doing great. They said she is quite but she participate in everything so I'm happy about that. She is pretty cute because she won't tell us much about it when we ask but then she'll just come out with random things or songs and when you ask her about it her face lights up!


Sophia's First Day


The girls wishes her off to her first day


It's not the best quality photo but here is Annabelle with her school bag on her first day ...

Sophia's 5th Birthday

It's so hard to believe that Sophia is now 5!!! She was lucky and had her Nana, Mema, Uncle Rodie, and Aunt Tricia come to visit us and spend the weekend with her. We had her party at a kids play area that has lots of different areas for the kids play and they had a great time. Before we had her party I took her to get a Mommy & Daughter manicure and she had butterflies and polka dots painted on her nails to match her Barbie Butterfly Princess outfit.

The pictures in this slideshow are a little blurry if you make it full screen so sorry about that.

Welcome Amelia!!!

We are so happy to welcome Amelia Marnet Cristine Wyatt to our family! She was born on August 13 at 9:00 and weighing in at 7lbs 1oz and 19in. Zack and I were happy to share the day with her since it was also our 6th wedding anniversary. Tricia was able to bring the other girls to the hospital to visit and Uncle Rodie came over too.
