More of May

My second Mother's Day was even better than the first! Kate made me breakfast in bed complete with my OJ in my crystal. That has been a family tradition of my family's for as long as I can remember. Mom was always served Diet Coke in her Waterford on Mother's Day morning. It just tastes better! We went to church and then over to my grandparent's for lunch. Another family tradition has been all the boys (my grandfather, dad and his 4 brothers, and sons) to fix lunch for the ladies. Luke made some deliciouis stewed tomatoes and okra. Yum yum!
Beautiful flowers and OJ

Hangin out with her Daddy!

We had some friends getting married in Arkansas, so we took took advantage of my grandparents trailer on the Little Red River for the night. It was only the second time I have left Kate overnight with my parents (besides work of course), and I missed her so much. I dont think the feelings were mutual! She had a wonderful time with her KK (and Uncle Jake and Uncle Blake!)
Luke is practicing hand grabbing!
My mom told us about this fabulous little restaurant that will cook whatever you catch. Funny thing was, they claimed to have never of done this! THe look on the hostess' face was priceless when Nathan walked in with our pot of fish! I bet they are still talking about us!

All the lovely ladies at the wedding-minus the bride :(

Like father, like daughter.

She escaped me before her bath one night.

We found out on May 19 that we will be adding a precious Baby BOY to our family! Our ultrasound was first thing in the morning. Kate went with us, and wasn't so sure about the whole process. Luke had to take her in the hallway, and our us tech was anything but nice. Boo! What was a blessing was that he has arms and legs, and four chambers of the heart, and a three vessel cord, and a beautiful spine. When the dr was going over the results, he got to newborn appearance. I asked if it said he was cute, and he said no, it says right here he is precious! I couldn't agree more!  We are beyond thrilled and were so excited to tell everyone. (sorry if I kept you hanging on facebook!) We went to Aunt Meme's school and had Kate positioned in the hallway with a blue balloon when her class walked by.

My mom was the only one who had guessed boy! She wore blue for the occasion!

She was so sure in fact, she had this waiting on us. And yes, that does say Little Rebel. The verdict is still out if Luke will let his son wear this or not!

Kate and her blue balloons!

Loving being a Big Sister already!

Me in all my glory at 19 weeks!

Our son's name will be Preston Jeffery Cantrell. Preston is Luke's middle name & his grandfather's middle name. Funny side story, when my mom called my great grandmother to tell her it was a boy, she informed my mom that her Daddy's name was Preston as well. Crazy! Jeffery is my dad's first name and my brother Blake's first name. Preston means priest's estate, and Jeffery means divinely peaceful. I like it!
We are so excited about adding some blue to our household...and Bandit is glad they will be in the majority again. So far, I have had a really good pregnancy minus some nausea in the begining, and being able to feel him move is as wonderful as I remember!

What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And all that's nice,
That's what little girls are made of.

Oh my gooness, we LOVE Cafe Klaser! My parents have a house in Heber Springs, so when we go to the lake all together, we usually try to go at least once!

Great post!

1. I wish I could have seen the look on your waitress's face when you handed her a bucket of fish. HAAA!

2. You kept me in suspense far too long on FB. Kacie and I kept talking to each other on the phone, waiting to see if one of us could figure something out about the picture that would surely indicate one way or the other!

3. I'm so excited you're having a boy!!! As far as I can tell, they're not as dramatic and are rough and rowdy. ;) And they looove their mommies--my personal favorite. ;)

4. You look precious! Did you start feeling Preston move before you felt Kate? I'm almost 15 weeks and I DECLARE I feel little bubbles all the time...but that could be gas. LOL
