Mylee Jean Moffat

From life and mylee
Mylee Jean Moffat Born: May 27th 2010 Time: 6:37 pm Weight and length: 8 lbs 15.1 oz 20.5 inches Life has been exciting as we adjust to having such a wonderful little baby in our home again. We are all learning how to run on Mylee time. Sometimes she is predictable and other times less than 30 minutes after you put her down she is crying for you again. She loves to nurse and I am sure is going to give all babies a run for their money in the size department. We are all happy with having another red head in our home. We hope she gets the sweet side of a red head as her older brother already has the spicy side. We have figured out that in our home you don't need a baby monitor with 4 older siblings. They here her make a peep and they are all at her side. They even come in from play to check in on her. She is going to be a very spoiled and loved baby.

Getting ready for Mylee

The kids have had fun getting ready for Mylee. But Madison seems to be the one who really loves getting all the baby stuff out.
With so little time from move to baby. We were unable to paint her room. But we have managed to get her room set up and all ready for her birth this coming week.
We have kept her nursery simple with a little bit of pink here and there. All in all you might find Madison playing in her room and any give hour of the day.
Or even find mom rocking in the rocker, dreaming of the day Mylee will be in her arms. It seems as if it has been along time since we found out another baby was blessing our house. So as of Thursday Mylee's room is done, car seat in the car and Hospital bag packed. I think we are as ready as we can be to welcome her into our family. Now we just have to get the house ready to welcome her. Mom is busy cleaning and preparing freezer meals getting the kids packed and ready for the week ahead. They have fun days at school planned and will have fun with Nana and grandma Moffat.
It is hard to believe that another school year is almost over. Which means it is also baby time. Yeah that is right. I found out shortly after the kids went to school in 2009, that I was pregnant. The bad part was I was going to be pregnant threw the whole school year. I don't know how it worked out that way, but it did. Which means that Dad(Jim) has had the chance to step in a few times on end of the school year field trips and activities. I feel some what like I am missing out but I do understand and see the joy Jim gets from going to school with the kids. As I look forward to the next week, I am a little scared of the labor. It has been over 4 years since I have been in the hospital and been in labor. I look forward to seeing Mylee and all the traits she will have. I look forward to seeing how the kids react to their new sister. I also look forward to the kids ending another school year, as they only have 9 more days of school left. The kids can not wait to meet their new sister and see what parts of the baby pool they won. They were able this week to guess Mylee's weight, height, hair color, time of day she is born, and how big her feet are going to be. Plus how long mom is going to be in labor. They get a candy bar or soda for each one they win. It was fun watching them guess. Most of them guessed the same hair color they had. Marcus was really persistent at wanting and feeling like it is time we have another red head. This week will bring a life changing gift. We can hardly wait for Mylee Jean Moffat to join our family. So stay tuned to see what Mylee looks like and get all the info.

Snap shots of the last 4 months

It has been sometime since we have posted some pictures of our life. Our lap top does not like to up load pictures. Now that we are in our new house we just need to find the time to set up our other computer and then the blog with be back in business full time. Right now I just went to a girl friends house and up loaded a few pictures. I still need to take more pictures of our house but it is still in shambles with the move and just getting off of bed rest. Enjoy a trip down the last 4 months. Early spring in February. We had fun enjoying the parks. Now we have snow again on the ground.
The Saturday after we moved into our new house Miles had his last pinewood derby. His is the yellow car. He had lots of fun.
The yellow one in the middle. looks like lightning.
On the 25th of April Miles was able to go on a 3 day trip with GATE to teaton science school. He had a blast. Mom had tears in her eyes as she sent her baby on a over night trip.
After, Miles was loaded on the bus the rest of us headed to Utah for the day to go to Chuckee cheese, appointments and get some furniture for our house.
Miles 10th birthday was on March 23. He had it at the Rec Center. They all had a blast.
It was a football theamed party. We played toilet paper football.
Mason's 6th birthday was April 27th. Anyone who knows Mason knows that he eats, drinks and sleeps Mario brothers. My dear friend Tara made these cakes for his birthday, as we had just moved into our house. We think she did a great job. Thanks Tara.
Mason showing off his Birthday present. He loves his color changing race track.
Mason closing his eyes waiting to see what might be his next gift.
WOW a new bike just what he needed.
Baseball season started the first of May. We have all 3 boys playing. Mom has not been able to get pictures of the older 2 boys. We have Mason playing for the Tigers, Marcus playing for the Rays, and Miles playing for the Padres.
Last weekend was Marcus and Mason's turn to have their birthday parties. They did them together. We had a small but fun pirate themed party at our house. I think it went well. Thanks for the help from our extended family.
All in all our life has been filled and blessed over the past few months. We look forward to meeting little Mylee in the next few weeks and to the fun that she will bring. Plus the end of the school year which means camping season and pools are coming our way.
