A big Announcement

Yep that is right Henry Tate will be here soon!! We found out in Ocotber and are completly thrilled to be blessed with another miracle.  From the beginning, Tillie wanted a baby brother, so she is happy.  I am 28 weeks pregnant and doing great, except the being on bed rest.  Pre-term labor is the pits, but it is giving me a time of reflection. 

Starting Something New


 Tillie started Pre-K in August.  She has fabulous teachers and I am so lucky to have her at the school where I teach.  It is so nice to see her in the the hallway and I even get to teach her on Tuesdays. She has learned so much and growing so fast.  She has even started to read. 
Standing in front of her cubby with her lunch number on ready to start her day!!!

In October Tillie went with her class on a school bus (which by the way was the highlight of the trip for her)  to a pumpkin patch.  She had a blast.

 Riding the cow train.
 Hunting for dinosaur eggs.
 Riding a tricycle.
 Picking her pumpkin.
 She loves her teacher, Mrs. Green AKA Snow White.
This is Mrs. Childress AKA the witch.

Happy 3rd Birthday

Time needs to slow way down!! I cannot believe that Tillie Ann is 3 years old today! It makes me so sad that just the other day it seems she was this little.
Then we celebrated the huge milestone of making it to her 1st birthday and that was too quick.
Her 2nd birthday came and went just like a sweet smelling fragrance.
Then, today she is 3 years old and I am wondering where the time has gone?!
HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY Sweet girl!!

Like a Little Fish...

Little fish is what we have been calling Tillie the last couple of months. Since in the new house we have a pool, we thought it would be best to enroll Tillie in her first of many swimming lessons. Mrs. Kim is the local guru on swimming. Anyone you ask around town says that Kim is the one to go see. She is so good that I had to call in March to be able to get an appointment in June. After many days of preparing Tillie for what was going to happen, the day and time was here. Mrs. Kim doesn't allow parents to accompany their children into the pool area. They have to walk in by themselves. We had already talked about this with Tillie, and hope she was prepared. Mrs. Kim greeted us at the gate and told all the anxious parents what was happening and what to expect. When she said "it will get worse before it gets better", I kinda got a little nervous. Tillie is usually a big girl, but when others are crying she tends to get a little clingy. So, the time was here and Mrs. Kim told all the kids to come on and for the parents to stay. Little Miss Big Girl walked right on in and never looked back. She swam and swam. This was my view for the hour.
Can you see her little head? I new she would do great, but I never expected the results that she achieved. Tillie can now swim under water, on her back, and knows what to do if she falls into the water.
The lessons lasted two weeks. Needless to say next year we will be back at Mrs. Kim's yelling "Come get us"!

Missed Me

Hi everyone!! Missed me??????? Well I have been up to a lot of things. I had a play date with my friend, Ginna Bess. We went to the cow place (I don't like the cow) and ate some chicken and fries then we played in the playhouse. But, Mommy wasn't happy with me before we went because I wanted to wear my snowman shirt even though it was Spring time, but she will hopefully not be to mad a me much longer. She says that it is just a phase, but I like what I like. So, anyways enjoy me and my friend Ginna Bess playing!
Last month, my Daddy turned 30. Mommy says he is old and jokes with him all the time about it, but she will be there in only a year so.... I had to help him blow his candles out and make a wish. Mommy and I created him a scavenger hunt that led to his gift. He had a lot of fun finding his Auburn print. Daddy says that I did good picking it out.

He Arose! That is what I learned from the next big thing that has happened. Jesus came out of the tomb that he was buried in after being hurt on the cross. Mommy and Daddy told me this story and told me that one day Jesus will be MY Savior and live in my heart. Mommy showed me some pictures of a tomb and I saw the clothes that were folded. Mommy got sad when she was talking about it, so it must have been really sad. Mommy and Daddy told me that one day I would know all about it. Jesus must really love me to get hurt for me. At school, my teacher taught us about Jesus dying too. We also had a party and hunted eggs. I had so much fun with my friends. Then, at church we had an egg hunt too. There were so many eggs I couldn't get them all. But, most of all there were bouncy slides. I had so much fun and I also cried to leave. i hope I get one of these at my birthday party! (HINT, Mommy and Daddy). Even my friend Ella was there. I was so tired that day. My BB gave me my basket so I could use it. I think it is so pretty because it's pink and has my name on it! Then it was time for the Easter Bunny to come. Mommy and Daddy woke me up that morning because that goofy bunny hid my basket and they could find it! I found it in the closet. Silly bunny! After bunny time, we got ready and headed to church. Daddy and Mommy said that next year that I would be old enough to go to sunrise service. Daddy just went this year and I slept. After church we went to Granny Ham's. I had so much fun with my Aunt Charlotte. She is so funny and hid me eggs that I could find and one had money in it! After spending time there we went to Rowan and Tuckers grandparents. Rowan had a water table and I loved it. I got so wet and had to change clothes. Then I went to my Pawpaw and Nanny's. I just hid eggs there. Plus that silly bunny brought me some clothes and a beach towel at their house.

So this is what has been going on at my house! Talk to you soon!
