Laila's little sister

yup we are having another little girl and we couldn't be more excited! Laila refers to her only as HER little sister. I told Landon he was going to have a little sister and Laila said no that she was only hers. I hope she realizes this means she is going to be sharing all of her things for a really long time. This is the first time I have been wrong about guessing the sex. I knew with Laila and Landon but this time I thought boy again. Actually Brad and Laila were the only ones who thought it was going to be a girl.

I could go on and on about all of the cute things Laila did that day because of her excitement but there is one cute story I will share. My mom bought Laila a pink heart balloon that says it's a girl to tell Laila she was getting her sister. Laila asked why it was a heart and I said something like oh because it's cute(lame). Laila said, " I think it's because they knew how much I would love my little sister."

Is it weird that through all this excitement I felt a little sad? Sad for Landon. I guess I would probably be a little sad either way. At least he doesn't know what it means to be surrounded by girls yet. :)

well now we need a name.....

a little bit of snow fun

Yesterday morning the kids went out for a little while. Laila has been crazy about wanting it to snow and when she saw the very first flakes fall she was ecstatic. There was just enough to make this little snow man. It sounds like he will be around for another week or so.

Then last night we headed over to a friends in Hiawatha and went sledding down a hill nearby. Laila and Landon both loved it. It was too dark to get good pictures of the actual sledding but I am hoping we will get another chance to go and take video. Laila went flying down the hill all by herself over and over. I don't think I have been more scared and more proud of her all at the same time :)

She is wearing Brad's gloves. That is why they are huge! Hers were soaked within minutes.
