Tatum's 1st Softball Game

This fall we signed Tatum up for softball. Since there were not many 4 yr olds to sign up, they put her on the 6 and under team. She along with everyone else was getting bored with just practicing, but she enjoyed her first game. She hit the ball on the second pitch and got a double! We were so proud of her! She was just as proud!

Old Baker Farm

Tatum and Ashlyn had a field trip to Old Baker Farm at the end of September. Josh took off 1/2 a day so we could both go wtih them. It was extremely HOT, but the girls had a great time. Here are a couple pictures of them from there!

My Mommy and Daddy say bad words.....

This past Tuesday at school, Ashlyn proceeded to tell her teacher that Josh and I say bad words. Ms. Elaine asked her what we said..... and with her hand on her hip and her head cocked to the side Ashlyn said..... Well... they say "Oh My Gosh" and we are only suppose to say "Oh My Goodness" or just "Oh My".... Elaine is a dear family friend on mine, so she had to come to my class and let me know. She was laughing so hard... I am just glad we didn't really say anything bad. But we do tell Tatum and Ashlyn to say "Oh My Goodness", I guess Ashlyn was listening to part of what we said!

Your Belly Button has a smiley face

When i was 21 i had surgery for Endometriosis. Therefore I have a scar in my belly button. The other day Tatum wanted to "talk" to Tyler. She lifted my shirt to see my belly and for the first time saw the scar. She started laughing and pointed to it saying "Your Belly Button has a Smiley Face!" There is a glimpse of the mind of a 4 year old!

30 week checkup

I went Thursday for my 30 weeks check-up. Everything was good. I am not as miserable as i was. I guess the weather cooling off a bit has helped. I am still measuring 3 weeks ahead.... even with measuring big they aren't going to do anything about it. My doctor just says he is going to be a bigger baby. About the size Tatum was..... She was 8 lbs 7 oz and Ashlyn was 7 lbs 3 oz.... Big difference. I told him i was ok with that, i just didn't want to birth a 10 pound baby. My nurse that listens to his heartbeat told me that i have a "pretty" belly. Her words were, I see alot of bellies around here and i dont give out that compliment very often. That made me feel better about how huge it is!!!
Otherwise everything else around the West household is going fine. Finally getting things rolling in Tyler's nursery. It is weird to see "boy" things come into this house.... after all the pink we have. Tatum and Ashlyn are getting excited. Ashlyn asked today when he was coming out of my belly... sooner than later is what i told her!
