Looking back...

I'm just looking back on pictures from previous posts with Elliot sitting next to me... amazing to me how much longer his hair has gotten in the past two months. I really want his hair to be long, I don't want a mullet and I don't want it shaggy, but I'm not sure I could handle cutting it either.

Another random Elliot thought... sometimes when I'm editing pictures or checking an order Elliot sits next to me and asks me who that is. I never realized how much attendtion he is actually paying though. We were just looking back on things and came across a session from September... he totally named the person. And it's not someone he would know otherwise or has seen since. Kind of crazy actually! He must be the most brilliant child on earth, that memory of his is just GREAT! (Ha... just kidding... I'm not THAT mom).

Can you even believe that it's thanksgiving this week???? I sure can't! The kids are off from school all next week, which will be kind of nice, no rushed mornings... ahhhh, heaven! I didn't realize that they had the week off though when I scheduled doctor appts (2 of them) for Monday. At first I was struggling to figure out what to do with them, but I think that I've decided to take them to the first one with me... the ultrasound. I think they will like it and really the older two are more than capable of sitting for an hour w/o to much problem. (Elliot is still going to a friends house).

Regarding the ultrasound... I'm rethinking my thoughts on not knowing the sex of this baby. I'm not good with suprises and normally find out the suprise before it happens, but I know that I'm normally quite disappointed when I do find out, so I'm not sure how this would translate in this situation. More than likely I will have another ultrasound in 4 more weeks, so I can always change my mind. I think it would be a bit questionable to find out right now anyway.

Here is a picture of me and my boys... (I look really old and wrinkley though)
and one of my boys chillin' out watching a bit of t.v. (Landon always amazes me with his patience with his little brother)

You REALLY look old and wrinkly- NOT!!!! I love E's long hair- keep it going until Spring then cut it. And YES- find out the sex of the baby- easier to spoil ahead of time!

You are crazy if you think you look old OR wrinkly! You look beautiful. Love the pic of the boys on the couch too. Good luck with your ultrasound dilemma, will you tell if you find out?

I really think you should find out. That way we have each other to lean on when the "bad news" comes down the pike for both of us! (obviously either is a fantastic gift, you know what I mean...)
