I know that I have done a horrible job of keeping up with our blog (I have been spending my free time on facebook). but I do want to try to keep both up and I can't figure out how to make our blog look right. I have wasted so much time trying to get the new backgrounds and this is the closest that I can get but it looks bad. How do I get it to all gel together and look like one page?

Noah Loving Sophia

Noah is a very loving big brother; if you ask him about his sister he gets a big smile. He is always quick to come in from outside if Sophie is crying (which is a big deal to come in from playing). I am so thankful that Noah has adjusted so well!

Adjusting to life

Well, as you can tell by the lack of posts that my time on the internet has limited but I did want to try and make time for a moment to post some new pictures and just write how much I love my two children! God has blessed Nate and I beyond my greatest expectations! I was concerned that Sophie could be a handful but she is a easy baby and Noah over all is adjusting well to having to share his Mommy and Daddy. I just wish that there were more hours in the day for fun things like blogging and not so fun things like cleaning house :-).

What a big helper!

Noah decided to help me put together his big boy bed; Nate was trying to get ready for work and I was bound and determined to put the bed together before Noah's nap so that he could try it out before night time. I should have just waited to put the bed together during Noah's nap but those pregnancy hormones got the better of me! He has done fairly well with the toddler bed; we had to put one side against the wall and the other side has two pillows and a chair set up against it so that Noah will not fall out! He tends to move ALL over his bed and the first night he ended up on the floor! So it really is not much different then a crib but he likes it :-) I will have to get a picture of the finsihed product for you all to see.

The last belly shot

This will be the last belly shot of Sophie; the next picture you see of her will be God's finished product (Lord willing). This picture was taken about two week ago so I guess that I was about 30 weeks pregnant. I am ready and scared at the same time for Sophie to be here. My main concern is how Noah will accept the change and that I would have enough energy for both of them!

Noah has a new hobbie

Noah loves to listen and dance to music; this weekend he had a taste of playing the guitar and he loved it! We are thinking of getting him a kids one for his birthday! Sorry if the video comes out sidewise it is not like that on our computer but when I downloaded it to google it ended up that way.

The Name

Well, after many hours of looking through the baby name book, talking to friends, and Nate and I throwing names out to each other we have finally decided that our little bundle of joy is going to be named Sophia Ann Mihelis. I thought that naming a girl would be so much easier than naming a boy since we had a girls name picked out when we were pregnant with Noah (Sophia) but then when we found out we were having a girl we (mainly me) could not commit to Sophia. I still liked the name but I found out that it was the most popular name for girls in 2006 and ever since then I didn't want to use it, but every other name we tried just did not seem to fit. I would love a name for about twenty-four hours and then I would hate it; poor Nate did not know what to do with me! Finally I told him that he needed to decide because I was not able to find any name I really loved; he called me from work a few days later and said that he thought she should be called Sophia. There are still moments when I think I might like a different name but we are committed to it!
Her middle name Ann is in honor of both Nate's and my mom; Nate's mom's name is Ann and my mom's middle name is Ann both spell it without an e so that was easy!

Cute pics

We tried to cut back on the binki with Noah but for some reason he has become very attached to them (yes he likes to have two). He usually only puts one in his mouth but there are the times when he likes to make us laugh and puts two in his mouth!

Noah wearing his big boy helmet. He does not like to wear it but we got a few pictures before he took it off.

My two boys

I have been looking for some undershirts for Noah since he is too big for onies and I finally found some tank tops like Nate wears. Noah loved looking like daddy!

Easter pics

Noah carried his basket for about 10 seconds; he picked up one egg and then went right for the swing. This is how he spent the rest of the afternoon!
