A minor accident

Well, it wouldn't be the holidays without a few bruises and bumps.  Josh thought it would be fun to play with the dog, Hagen, and the laser pointer.  Avery was having a blast until she hit the corner of the leather ottoman.  Of course, it was the hard corner not the cushion.  She has a pretty big black and blue goose egg between her eyebrows.  It is so sad to see, but she popped right back up and went after the laser pointer.  The video is pretty funny of Hagen and Avery chasing after the pointer.  The accident happened after this video was taken.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!  We have so much to be thankful for.  Avery is the sweetest child, and we are so blessed by her daily.  I am so thankful for my husband and his love and devotion to our family.  We are also very thankful for our baby girl, Amelia, that will be arriving sometime in the next six weeks.  We are very grateful for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and his love and grace that He gives us each and every day. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 
Happy Thanksgiving from our Family to Yours
Just another pic of our angel.  I didn't catch her smiling.  Check out her bracelet.  She wore it all day long and loved it.  Could this be.....maybe next we are on to Ear Piercing. :)

Welcome to Two Loved Bugs

Welcome to our new Family Blog!  My good friend and colleague, Karen, came up with the name so I can't take all of the credit.  Now, if we have a third child, we are up a creek!  And no, we are not planning a third at least at this time.  HaHa! 

Without further ado, if you haven't heard our name choice for our Baby Girl #2, it is.......

Amelia Grace

Amelia was a favorite name of mine for a really long time.  Josh was a little unsure at first but it has now stuck and he likes it too.  We wanted something a little different.  And Grace because it is a pretty name that flows well.  I wish I had a little better story behind our name choice, but we just liked them both. :)  She is going to be called Amelia..nothing for short. 

With that said, Amelia is measuring right on target at 33 weeks.  I will go again to the doctor in two weeks and then I am on weekly appointments.  It is so hard to believe she will be arriving very soon.  We have so much left to do, but I am sure it will all come together at the end. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!

School pictures

My baby had her school pictures taken a few weeks ago.  She has a sweet face, but she looks so grown-up.  I think it is the zoomed-in picture.  Avery is getting so big so fast.  She is saying so many words it is hard to keep up.  She will say two or three words together like "Momma, see you."  She just hasn't mastered "see you later."  She amazes Josh and I everyday.  She is so lovey and happy.  Anyway, enough bragging about our girl.  Happy Wednesday!

Should I start a new blog?

I created a new blog, but I am hesitant to change to it.  I said this before...I am not sure why I chose "Josh and Erin plus one" 1) because I couldn't stand that show and 2) because we knew we always wanted more than one child.  So now, what to do??  Will you still follow me if I change the name of our blog?  Suggestions, dear friends! 

We spent all day and most of the night Saturday repainting our front room that Avery will move to in a few short weeks.  It turned out so pretty.  It is a very pale pink.  I will post a picture when it is all complete.  We are hoping to move Avery to her new room during Thanksgiving weekend. 

All is great with Baby Girl #2.  I had an appointment on Thursday and she is measuring right on target.  It is amazing how fast these appointments are since I don't have to get on the baby monitor due to the gestational diabetes.  I loved hearing Avery's heartbeat bi-weekly and then every week, but it sure made a long appointment.  Now, I breeze in and out.  My lab results that I did a few weeks ago stated that my iron was low so I have to start Iron.  I am really fighting it.  I asked the doc why I really need it...he said if my iron count is low and lose too much blood during delivery, I would have to have a blood transfusion.  So, I am officially making myself take the Iron now. :)

More pictures to come.  I haven't even finished posting all of Halloween!

Happy Fall Y'all

Avery had a wonderful 2nd Halloween. She went Trick-or-treating with her cousin, Carson.  She would say "Tricka" but no "treat."  Here are a few pics of the last month.


I took Avery to Enchanted Gardens because they always have a beautiful displays.  We went on a Friday morning by ourselves so needless to say it was hard to position her and take the pic.  Most of the pictures she was looking down. 
This is the only one I got actually looking up and the sun was so bright.  Still cute though!
 She was far more interested in the two dogs that live there than the pumpkins. 
Later in the day, we met Josh at a pumpkin patch near our home so Avery could pick out a little pumpkin.  
 Daddy helping Avery pick out her pumpkin.  Funny story....I have to really start calling Josh, Dada or Daddy because Avery calls him Josh quite a bit. 
 Our family pic at the Pumpkin Patch. 
 We went to our friends, The Hartman's house for a family Halloween party.  We were beekeepers and Avery is a our little bee.  We won the costume contest.  The party was so fun!  We can't wait for next year!
 Our little bumblebee!
 Her Daddy showing her which candy to pic from her GiGi (Josh's mom's new Grandma name is GiGi.  She just couldn't quite say "Grandma"). 
 Enjoying a lollipop next to her Pumpkin that GiGi painted for her.  It is so cute!


 PaPa and GiGi with Avery. 
 Then we headed over to my sister's house so the kids could Trick-or-treat together.  Carson was so cute in his Spiderman costume.  Even had shoes to match. 
More pictures to come.  I just got worn out of uploading pictures! 

In other baby news, I am officially almost 31 weeks.  So hard to believe how fast this pregnancy has flown by.  We can't wait to see our Baby Girl!  We talked to the doctor at our last appointment about possibly having her before the end of the year.  He didn't say no, but he did say I am full-term at 37 weeks which is Christmas.  We will see when this precious girl wants to arrive, and I will try to be patient.  I am trying to plan for Christmas and get Avery all moved rooms in the next month.  Josh plans to paint Avery's room this next weekend.  We are going to leave the nursery as is and move Avery.  She is not ready for a big bed yet, and I don't want to disrupt her sleep so she is going to stay in her crib.  We are going to borrow my parent's crib for the new baby until Avery moves to her twin.  I have all her bedding ready, but it will have to wait a while because I don't want to two precious girls that don't sleep.
