** BABY **

Well the news is out - we are having a baby! (read the fortune above to see the due date). We finally told everyone in our immediate families and now we are sharing this great news with friends and extended relatives. Kami & Rian are very excited about becoming big sisters (again). Rian even thinks she has a baby in her tummy - it is kind of cute watching her stick out her belly, pat her tummy and talk to her "baby". Kami is working hard trying to come up with some good names. So far her ideas are fairly similar to names she calls her dolls and barbies...hhhmmmm (I promise no babies will be named Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Aurora or Prince if a boy). I'm thankful to be out of the first trimester and well into the second (I'm just about 16 weeks along) one. The nausea has become much more tolerable and I'm getting a little more energy back - just in time for cold weather and snow! I'll try to keep you all posted on the progress of Baby#3 but I promise to not make this entire blog about this one topic.

Prima Ballerina

Tuesday was Kami's last ballet class. All of her adoring fans were allowed to come and watch her display her newly learned skills and talents (and a new fluffy pink/white tutu). The other cute ballerina with a puffy tutu is Kami's friend Reese. Both girls did such a great job following their teacher's instructions! I am amazed at how much of an improvement the kids in the class showed since their first class! Enjoy these short clips:

the girls are showing how to stand in second position and then leap (not sure the technical term for their fancy move). What poise and grace :)

The ribbon dance with a special wave to her fans.
