Update on Baby #4

Okay, I'm finally going to let everyone know what is going on with my "unexpected" pregnancy. I'm finally at ease with it and am actually really excited. For some reason I can't not get pregnant even when I am on birth control and I was making sure that I took it everyday and on time. But the box does say that it's only 99% effective, I'm just one of those lucky woman that gets stuck in the 1% profile. The kids are getting excited, Owen keeps asking when the baby is going to come out of my tummy and wants to name it Speed Racer. Well, I'm just over 20 weeks now and I just had my ultrasound this past week. Tell me if you can tell what I'm having.

IT'S A GIRL!!!!!

I'm so excited, now Kate will have someone to play with that won't insist on playing cars,transformers, or superheros all the time. She's starting to really want to dress up and play with her babies and stuffed animals and the boys think that that is really boring. So 2 boys and 2 girls in the Wilde family. My due date is January 13, but I usually go a week or two early. Right after I told Brad what the due date was he asked me:

"Can't you try and deliver on the 31st of December"

I said "Why would I want to do that?"

He said "So that we can have a tax write off for the year of 2008."

I could have hit him, if I weren't on the phone with him. He's such a terd sometimes, but I still love him. Here are her two feet crossing each other. She really moves around alot, so I'm surprised that we got so many good pictures. Here are her two hands and you can see her little fingers! I'm so excited to have another little girl, Kate has been so different than the boys. It's really funny, because the boys try everything to be like Daddy like helping with all the power tools and fixing things around the house.And Kate is always trying to help me cook and take care of her babies. It's going to be so fun to have a big family, but we're definitely stopping at 4! My only problem now is trying to find another girl name. For some reason boy names are so much easier for me than girls, so if any of you have any names to throw my way, let me know!

Owen's First Day of Preschool

For those of you that don't live in Florida, the Florida State Government pays for a year of preschool before they enter kindergarten. And last year Owen missed going because his birthday is one month past the deadline. So this has been looked forward to for a very long time, both by him and Mommy. Owen is so smart and very impatient when it comes to learning. Nothing is ever enough for him, so he was getting quite bored at home playing "baby" games with Alex and Kate. His first day was on Monday and he goes from 12 to 3, Mon. thru Fri. He had so much fun playing with his new friends and learning from a new teacher. He got so upset that school was canceled on Tues. due to Tropical Storm Fay and then we didn't even receive a drop of rain and little wind. Anyway, we've started the long path of kids in school and it's a little weird for me. I didn't think that I was old enough to have kids in school yet. Well, here are some pictures that I got of Owen his first day and pictures of his new school. Walking through the doors of Knowledge.(WOW, was that cheesy or what?) He loved riding the bikes during recess.I can't tell if that kid is looking up that little girls skirt or not, but so help me if Owen ever did...
His classroom. They're class is called the White Tigers.The atmosphere that they have at the school is awesome and makes it fun for the kids to learn. This is one of the little reading hideaways that they have.

Alex's 3rd Birthday!

Alex's Birthday was August 11th and we decided to throw him a little birthday party with some of his friends. We BBQ'd, had the bubble machine going in the house(yes, I'm a crazy Mom, but in my defense they were Gymboree bubbles and they're sugar based so they don't make a huge mess and they last forever! It's a game we like to play and it lasts all day if you have the fans on in the house because they end up everywhere and the kids have a race to try and pop them all). We also had all the kids do some fireworks at the end and they all seemed to love that. It was so much fun to watch them all play around the house and have a blast! A lot of the pictures didn't turn out because the batteries in my camera were dying, but I did get a few.WE LOVE SPARKLER CANDLES THAT NEVER GO OUT! Is that mean? The kids seemed to love them. I eventually helped him blow out the candles. The wind was blowing so hard, it was hard to get the fireworks lit, but Brad finally got them all going. After the little firework show, we gave them all some sparklers. By the time that was done it was 9:30 and the kids were ready for BED!
All in all it was a great night and we wish Alex many more happy ones to come.

Owen's Soccer Banquet

Wow it's been a long time since I've done any blogging! Sorry about that. Well here is the rest of Owen's soccer games and his banquet at the end. He was soo excited that he got a trophy. "That means I did really good huh Mom!" he said. I smiled and gave him a high five, I'm so proud of him. He starts football the beginning of September and I can't tell who's more excited for that to start, Owen or Brad.Owen scored one goal and assisted in another his last game. He still talks about it.His favorite position was goalie. I think it was because he could pick up the ball and throw it as far as he could down the field.They had the cutest little cheer that they did at the beginning, middle and end of every game.
Kate would sweat like crazy and she wasn't even playing. But at least she would keep busy trying on everyone's sunglasses. These glasses belong to her Aunt Lauren who came to visit.Alex on the other hand didn't even want to watch, so he would go over to the sand box, strip down to almost nothing and throw sand on his head. He's my busy busy busy busy one. Did I mention that he was a busy boy?
Here's Owen receiving his trophy from one of his coaches.And here's his team with their trophies. GO PIRATES!
