Still a Family of 4!

Yes, we are still a family of four. Kylie Reese is scheduled to be here this Thursday afternoon via C-section. Tina, my sister-in-law, who was due the same day as me had Charley on April 5th. She is so beautiful and has a head full of dark hair.
Mentioning hair, Tina cut Reed and Braden's hair thankfully before she had Charley. Reed's hair was starting to get a little like a mullet but don't worry, I left the curls.
Braden on the other hand did not have much of a mullet to cut! He just had some hair over his ears that desperately needed to go! The boys still love to ride the golf cart. Even when we aren't driving it, they love to climb in and out of it.
Have I mentioned that I have warped my boys into loving crushed ice. I stop at Sonic all the time for ice and my parents have a machine that makes ice like Sonic. It is to the point that when either one of them sees a styrofoam cup, they both think it is full of crushed ice:-)
Is Hummingbird nectar okay to drink?!? Braden and Reed pushing their blue hippos at my parents.
They wore themselves out! These two would stay outside all day if you would let them. It is nice because it does wear them out and they are usually ready for a nap when they come in.
Both of the boys LOVE papa. When we pull down my parent's driveway, they will both say his name. I think it might have something to do with the fact that he will drop anything and everything to pay them attention no matter what he is doing. He also takes them for rides on the golf cart, lawn mower and tractor. He has lots of big toys that the boys love to "help" him drive.
Braden is learning how to mow at an early age. They are going to have to start working soon:-) Here are a few pics of the nursery. I am still not "done" with her room but I at least have it started. As my mom says, it needs some decoration to it! I figure that I will have some time to hang some things on the wall once she gets here. However, I may have absolutely no time to do anything since we will have 3 kids under the age of 17 months!!!! What fun!!!
My mom made the bedding and I love it! She did such a great job with it. It is mostly cream with green panels on the bumper pad and on the bottom of the bed skirt.

Please be praying for a smooth delivery and healthy baby for us. We are very excited to meet her, but of course a little anxious after all that we went through with the delivery of the boys and Reed's hospitalization. We know that God is giving us exactly who he wants Ryan and me to raise, and we cannot wait to meet Kylie!
