Marley the cheerleader

Like I mentioned last week, Marley had her first cheerleading competition this past Sunday. She's on what is called the Mini team.  All the girls are between 3 and 5 years old. Marley is the second youngest on her team.   It was pretty funny watching her.  I wasn't sure if she would actually do it once she saw all those people but she did great!  Enjoy!

She's a silly kid! 

She's on the far right. That's her awesome cartwheel. 

She got a little distracted. 

So cute!

15 weeks

I fear for my sanity!

Before we found out that Marley was a girl, Mike really wanted a boy.  He wanted a little buddy to ride 4 wheelers with and have fun with.  I, however, really wanted a girl. Someone to dress up and do cheerleading and gymnastics, and all that girly stuff.  Well, little did we know Marley would be perfect for both of us! She does cheerleading and sometimes likes to do girly stuff, but she also has a tomboy side to her too.  She loves digging in the dirt and getting muddy. We have a go-kart and a 4-wheeler and she loves riding those and going fast.  So all in all, both Mike and I got what we wanted.

Now, this is where I get worried.  If the baby is a girl that's all fine and dandy cause she can do the girly stuff and the boyish stuff, like Marley does. But if it's a boy, I'm really in trouble.  Boys can't really do all that girly stuff.  So we'll have another "Little Daddy" Which is what I usually refer to Marley as. (Oh and we aren't finding out the gender until the baby decides to enter the world)

This is Marley at Deep River Park in the river. 

This is Mike stuck in some water on a trail. 

How will I handle Mike, Marley and the new baby all out riding 4-wheelers and being crazy?!

Lost a week =(

Today was my 14 week doctor appointment. She said everything looks great from my lab results and ultrasound results. We listened to the heartbeat. Marley was with me and she really enjoyed hearing that. When I told her what the noise was her eyes got really big. It was very cute.  I had my first ultrasound about 4 weeks ago, and apparently they are charting me at only 13 weeks, so in a way I've gone back a week.  I was originally due on March 21st, 2012, but now it's March 26th.  Which, for those of you keeping track, is 6 days after Marley's 4th birthday! It will be "exciting" to see if I end up with a March or April baby!  Marley was 8 days late so who knows what little Corn Tuck a Tuck has in store for us. (If you missed the post about the baby's name you can see it here)  As far as me, I'm feeling really good, no morning sickness or nauseous feelings at all.  I just have to make sure I eat every few hours and I feel great. I've gained about 7 pounds so far, which is right on track I guess.

We have a busy weekend planned.  Marley is on an all-star cheerleading team.  (All-star cheerleaders only do competitions, they don't actually "cheer" for any sports teams) Anyways, her first competition is this Sunday!  We're very excited and anxious to see how this goes.  She told me today when I asked if she wanted to wear a shirt with a cheerleader on it that she hates cheerleaders. This could be interesting!

Here's Marley getting ready for Sunday

I will definitely have a lot of pictures and possibly a video to share on Sunday night.  EEEKKKK Can't wait!
