19 and pregnant

I am sitting here watching "16 and pregnant" on MTV (I know I know) and the girl who is on this show is considering adoption for her baby. I don't know if she will go through with it or not b/c there is a half hour left. While watching her meet the adoptive parents and go through the doubts, I am once again so glad that we chose to keep Austin instead of giving him up for adoption. When I got pregnant at 19, we did consider it early in my pregnancy since we were so young and had no idea how to provide for him. If we had, I would've missed out on so many amazing things. Watching Austin grow and become a little boy, now a big boy. His weeks when he was 4 of wearing only his spider-man outfit, silly dancing all over the living room, and what an awesome big brother he has been for Andrew (among other many things). I am so thankful we have had all these years with him and will have many more, instead of wondering what he looks like and what kind of person he is becoming. We definitely made the right decision for our family.

Today is 07/08/09

I know I am a dork but I love today's date! Drew was born on 09/08/07 and I love that also!

I can't believe we are this far into the summer. It feels like it is flying past. Austin has been playing Wildcat baseball and he LOVES it. I personally am not a fan of baseball, but I may have to become one. So that gives us at least one thing to do 4 days a week, as long as the weather cooperates. Drew really enjoys going to the games and walking around, collecting flowers and rocks and staring at the pretty little girls that give him flowers. I think he falls in love every game!

My little sis gets married on the 25th of this month. We have her bridal shower and bach party this weekend. It should be a fun time! I am also looking forward to seeing family that is coming from out of town for the wedding. Not so much looking forward to wearing my dress the entire day since I can't really breathe in it (how will I eat??) - - but that is my own fault. :(

If anyone has not watched the show "Wipeout" you really really should! I laugh so hard during that show and actually give it my undivided attention (ask Tony, that doesn't often happen). Those people are so brave to be complete idiots on TV and entertain me!

Well that's about it for now. Happy Birthday to all the little ones who are turning one soon or just turned one. Also to the baby girl who is due anyday now!
