June updates

Okay, I haven't blogged in a while. Been working 50 hour weeks with a 1.5 hour commute people, gimme a break! :) And I haven't had any energy lately! I've been falling asleep at like 7:30pm. So one day last week I wasn't feeling so hot and actually got sick at school....are you following where I'm going with this yet?...Yes, we are expecting another baby! And it took me 2 - 3 months to figure it out :) So I don't know when we're due, January - February-ish. We just never slow down!

Toby is doing really well, learning lots of words. Mama, Dada, Nana, no, more, thank you, ball and bubble are some of the regulars. Still working on up and please... He went out to the barn with me yesterday and rode the tiny mini (my friend Kaila's pony)! I think he's even more addicted to horses than I am. He gets so mad when he has to get down :)

And 2 weeks ago, we FINALLY took Willow to a show. (we've been trying to go since February, but the weather has been most uncooperative!). Stephanie showed her in 1 flat class and 3 jumping classes (18" jumps). She did so well! She took like 8th place, but she was riding against a lot of old school horses who've been doing this forever. For her first jumping show and second show ever, she was awesome! I didn't end up showing because she did so well and was tired after the morning classes, so I gave her the afternoon off. She's super cute this year with all her dapples. Here's a pic of me messing around for a few minutes on her. I have no idea what I'm looking at...

That's all for now.

OMG CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! I have been meaning to give you a call but Renate said I should wait till school was out since you have been so busy. I am missing you guys so much!
Thats awsome about Willow. She's so young and doing so good. Is this the same girl you had a few months ago or did you find a new one to show her?
Glad to hear that you are all doing so good. I bet Toby is adorable! I am so glad you found some time to update the blog. I check it often. Give me a call sometime after school gets out. I dont know when you all end, or if you have ended.

So I guess I should update ours now? I, of course, was only holding off on updates to make you look better. But now that you have, I need to get on the ball, haha!

So as soon as you know gender, please share so I can start tailoring the horrible baby names that pop in my head for your new bundle of joy.

My fav so far, is a toss up between Shakira and Sanjya. Toby will be such a great big bro.

Looking forward to seeing you some this summer!

CONGRATS, Rachelle!! Toby will be a wonderful big brother! Are you hoping for a girl this time? I think they are a lot harder than boys (the drama) but still lots of fun. When does school get out? I hope you are able to get some rest and I hope your pregnancy goes very well!
