Ashley loves to dress herself. It is quite difficult to get her to wear anything I want her to...yes, I realize she's two and I'm bigger but we try to not fight her too much on silly things.
This is an outfit she put together. I tried to tell her that it doesn't match. She pointed to the purple stripe on her shirt...and then pointed to a purple flower on her shorts...and said Matches. How do you even argue with that? I think she pulled off the ensemble. May she always have that confidence :).

So, for those of you who know me really well, you are all aware that I can't dance. At all. Well, if I am extremely comfortable and relaxed, I will dance anyway. I do these silly exaggerated moves around the house. It keeps Mike laughing. Ashley does kind of giggle....but then she says No dance Momma. That confirms it completely. I can't dance.

We made the trip to Covington for Easter to introduce Drew to Mema and Granddaddy Turner. Ashley had a ton of fun hunting Easter eggs. We practiced all week and were surprised on Easter that the eggs had chocolate in them. She had to open each one right then.
She is a really sweet big sister and showers Drew with kisses. She prefers for him to be fed by anyone besides Mommy if there is someone else around. Drew's hair, while dark at birth, seems to be coming in red now. It is more auburn than carrot top. Mike has started calling him "Big Red" to my dismay.
Sorry for the delay in letting you know...
Andrew Michael was born on March 1st at 1:35 AM weighing in at 8 lbs 5 oz and 20 inches.
We are all doing fine...just trying to get the hang of things.
I highly recommend my birth plan if you can time it right. Both times, I was able to eat a light supper before going to the hospital a few hours later. They were feeding me breakfast the next morning after having the babies in the early early morning. After hearing stories about friends having to go without eating for over 24 hours, this worked out great for me. Everything went a little too quickly with Drew but it all worked out fine.

Let me share some things that have been said to me this pregnancy (and last).
Are you pregnant? Seriously? If you have to ask, then you probably just shouldn't mention it. This was at 6 months so I'm sure it was obvious...but can you imagine if the answer is no?
How many are you having? In fairness, I think that this was asked because at Ashley's school, the last 3 pregnancies have been twins. It could have been asked because I am huge...but seriously, I am 5 foot tall. Where am I going to hide these extra pounds?
You look like you are about to pop. This one, in and of itself, is not that bad. And I agree that that is how I look. However, I have looked that way for 2 months. What do you say? I hope not cause the baby isn't due for a few months...
Wow. This was actually said by Cserno when he returned from a business trip to Florida. He was pretty impressed with my growth while he was gone. I like to pretend it is a compliment :).
I'll keep you updated.
I'm sure that there will be more to add :).

We spent Christmas in Covington at my grandparents' house. Ashley received cowboy boots from Aunt B and insisted on wearing them right then. She actually put on the entire cowgirl outfit...very cute. She was spoiled by everyone but especially by Nana. When we returned to Nashville, she found that Santa had left her a kitchen. I have never seen her so excited. Uncle Clay had come down from New York. She was a little timid but I have no doubt that they will be friends again when he returns this summer.
