Baby Blevins @ 11 weeks & 3 days

We thought this was a precious sono pic and wanted to share it with everyone! Baby Blevins looked perfectly healthy and was doing wonderful. The heart rate was 173 bpm and the baby was already trying to suck it's little thumb. We were told we would get another sono with the specialists on Dec. 2nd and they would give us their best guess on the babies gender at that we can't wait for that day to arrive to find out what the precious little baby is going to be.

We're Having Another Baby!

In case you haven't heard the news, baby Blevins #2 is on the way! The dr. said things looked healthy and normal at our appointment. The due date is June 3rd, yes my birthday. We seem to just have the timing down perfectly on these due dates. Brynn was due on our wedding anniversary and baby #2 is taking the same approach and picking an extra special day for its arrival. The dr. didn't let Brynn go full term, and he said he would plan the same with this baby as well by inducing a week or two early...I think I will be just fine having to miss those last few weeks of school!

We were very excited to get to have a sono at this appointment even though I am only a few weeks along. It is amazing how rapidly they grow, develop, and change in a few short days. Here is the 1st pic we had of Brynn at 8 weeks 3 days, and also a 1st pic of baby #2 at only 7 weeks and 1 day. The differences in the pictures are so unbelievable.

Brynn at 8 weeks, 3 days

Baby #2 at 7 weeks, 1 day

Time To Catch-Up

Well it has been way too long since my last post, but here are the many things that have been happening in our lives over the past few hectic (very hectic) weeks! ENJOY!

Once school started things have been like a whirlwind of events.


Well we ran in the Sherman Arts Fest 9.3 mile run on Sept. 19th and we both beat our time from last year. Mark and I both received 2nd place in our gender age divisions.

Mark's Time: 1 hr. 28 min. - which was 15 min. off of last years time

Lindsey's Time: 1 hr. 32 min. - which was 11 min. off of last years time


Mark's birthday was September 21st and we celebrated by having a super fun family dinner at Mamu and Grandad's house. Brynn helped her daddy open all of the presents by making sure he knew what was in them right before he opened was really cute, she would's candy and a movie!


Well, not to disappoint ya but I didn't think you would want to see the pictures of Laura's knee surgery that the surgeon took, but I do want to report that she is still recovering and doing good. Brynn and I have been down many times to check in and help out!


Brynn got all dolled up in her cheerleader outfit and once we got to the game she got her *sparkly* eyes! Thank you Malissa for bringing the goods and thank you Courtney for making Brynn look soooooo pretty! Of course all the girls were there to play with each other, poor ACE he has to deal with all those pretty little girls at every game and no boys to hang out with! Brynn also got to go down with BFF Kaitlyn to get a picture with the BEARCAT!!!!! It was a FUN night!

Well...its was back to school for myself once again. It took many hours to prepare the room, the first weeks lessons, and definitely many hours too prepare my mind for getting a new batch of kiddos in my room. With all of that it did turn out to be a great first week.

I wasn't the only one who went to school last week...Brynn started preschool! She has already learned so much in one short week. She loves her school and talks all about it when she gets home. She has taught us many lessons like she is a teacher.

Future Gold Medal Olympic Gymnast

We started gymnastics Tuesday evening and Brynn had a blast! She loved the activities they got to do and really listened to her teachers. We can't wait to go back again next week! I love the picture of Brynn in the flip belt on the was the first time she was being flipped backwards and she freaked out a little but thought it was fun.

VBS week!

What a wonderful week it has been with the kids at VBS. Brynn enjoyed it very much. We learned to "FEAR NOT" because God is always with us, He is powerful, He does what He says He will do, He gives us life, and He cares for us!

Hard to say GOODBYE :-(

Well, we had to say goodbye to the Mustang today, and I'm going to be honest...I shed several tears over trading in the Mustang. I know I said many ugly things about the black Mustang but I will really miss it...Mark and I called it the date car because all 3 of us could not ride in the car comfortably at the same the only time that I ever got to ride in the car was when Mark would take me out on a special date when someone was watching Brynn for us.

So...we went for the more practical 4 door, family friendly, sport utility vehicle. And...Mark seems to be excited to have a silver car again...we won't go into the silver Mustang story (hahaha)...but it's a Jeep Grand Cherokee that Brynn was really excited about...she calls it the monster car for some reason...who knows!


ok...I saw this video on a friends blog and just thought it was hilarious...

don't forget to pause the music at the bottom so you can hear the video!

More brave than I ever was...

That's right...Brynn got her ears pierced and she looks so big now. I was 7 I believe when I went through what I considered a very traumatic experience. First of all I had to get my ears pierced at some booth in the middle of the mall where the entire place was staring at me...(this was back in the day when Midway Mall was the place to be). I got extremely nervous and pale. I had to even ask for a drink of water before I finally said I can't do this yet and made my sister go first. Then when it came my time I remember it being painful and one even bled.

Now as far as Brynn goes she was nothing but excited...I was still the nervous one. I kept saying maybe we should wait for daddy to come up here and be with us, but she insisted I want them pierced now! So, we went ahead and got them pierced. She was brave and had no tears at all. The earrings are precious too...little sparkly flowers!
