now that i am jobless (go there for all your insurance needs) i stay home and hang out with sweet BellaRose. yesterday we made french bread and oatmel toffee cookies. this was my best french bread yet. today we worked on naps. she took a 2 hour and 45 minute nap!! so proud. we have a much more pleasant baby when she sleeps. although right now she is screaming in her crip. i guess i should get her. i really want to establish the morning nap and then i will move onto the afternoon nap.
in other very exciting news BECKY is pregnant!!! she is making BellaRose a friend. yeah for becky and Jeremiah. we are so happy for you.
FYI- our friends Morgan and Christina are pregnant with Sullivan. He has a congenital heart defect. He is due in October. I am going to paste the e-mail she sent on a fundraiser that they are having for Sullivan. If you have any questions or need directions please let me know. Morgan and Christina could really use your thoughts and prayers as they are facing a big challenge once Sullivan is born.

I like that you are not working at State Farm but I know you are not jobless, you are just full-full time now with something more important. Thanks for the shout out me jr.(i know recycled joke) and I are very happy about the cookies you made yesterday! very good. I'm so happy about the fundraiser. That is a an answer to prayer.

I am do excited for Becky she will be sucha wonderful mama too. Now you will be able to share all your pregnancy advice with her!

did you get BellaRose to take a paci?

sunday said...

no paci. we have it there and she uses it for like 2 seconds and then she spits it out. she loves her hand but can't get to it when she is swaddled! we are thrilled for becky, but so far our pregnancies have been very different.

We will try and come to the fundraiser, thanks putting in your blog. I will pass it on to others. What strength that must take, I admire so much people that are so strong through things like that.
Yeah for Becky, but I think you ust come to grips with the fact that she's having a boy. But Bella Rose must only have eyes for one.
Good work on the naps, BE BOLD!

TWO HOURS AND 45 MINUTES?!?!! i'm so impressed. i think at that age gracen was taking 4 to 5 25-25 minute naps a day. she's just FINALLY learned to take a 2 hour morning nap (if the dogs stay quiet) and is in the process of dropping her afternoon altogether. i'm still giving her an hour of "quiet time," so i can regain sanity and she can think about napping. i'm hoping one day we'll wake up to one 3-4 hour nap in the middle of the day. someday...

Becky's pregnant WHAT! Just kidding.. I already knew! BellaRose is still the cutest!

sunday said...

so annie you think that becky is having a boy? BellaRose will have so many options, but just between us she won't stop cooing about Will

Becky and Jeremiah Swann said...

Hey I heard that!
-Hey if I have a girl she will date Ryland because they'll have the same b-day,then Bellarose and she won't be competitive, but later in highschool when Bellarose is dating college guys, my daughter will secretly go out with Will behing her back! Unless I have a boy then well this would not work..ok I could keep going but I won't

For the record, Will is not a cheater.
