New Little Turner on the Way!

We are very excited to announce we are having a girl. Our due date is April 4, 2014. Ellie is super excited saying now they can be twins. I know she wanted a boy for awhile, so Papa would have someone to watch the UFC fights with, since she has decided she doesn't really want to watch them. She also said, a boy would be good, then daddy could have one, and mama could have Ellie. But mostly she has talked about having a sister, so they can be twins, and share lots of things. I think it will be fun to have two little girls, and they are so lucky to have the best daddy around to rough house with, and teach to kick a soccer ball, and to make sure boys stay away for a long time! So far, baby is healthy, and mama is doing fine. I am getting big, and I'm only 1/2 way there, so wish me luck!

Been Awhile. . .

It is July now, and Ellie has lost 4 teeth. She will be starting kindergarten next month, and I just can't believe my baby is growing up so fast! I did an interview with her several months ago, and I want to type it up so I don't forget about it.

First Tooth!

Ellie has had a loose tooth for over a month. At first I didn't believe her, since she has older friends that have been loosing teeth, I thought she was just having some wishful thinking. But it really was loose. When it started hanging crooked I really wanted it out...but it stayed like that for a week or so. It finally came out this week with the help of Papa and some pliers, (so glad I wasn't around to see this) The Tooth Fairy came for a visit, and left a gold coin, a fairy dusted dollar, and a little note for Ellie. I even got a picture of her!
