"Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you." Colossians 1:9

and he shall be called.... Alexander Banks Nixon "Alex"

The name Alexander comes from Marks Great Grandfather and Banks comes from my Great Grandmothers middle name. Family names are really important to us and this is what we could agree on for baby boy number 2. If you ask Grant he will say "My baby's name is Alex but I like Garner". We have several months to get him used to the name. Garner was my first pick but it got the ax!

I am 20 weeks and 3 days now...so half way there! Hopefully the holidays will help speed the process up...we can't wait to meet the little guy and see his face... What in the world would another little boy of mine look like...Will he have any hair? Will it be dark and curly?

Keep us in your prayers....we hope 34 weeks will come and go...I know the NICU nurses are nice but i really don't want to spend any time with them this go round.

Its A.................

Just kidding....you should know its not time yet. I am only 11 weeks today! As you can tell, I am itching to find out the sex of our newest baby. With the Canton Flea Market, Misteltoe, and all other shows...how can I shop without knowing.

I had my second appointment this week and everything went perfect. I was fortunate to have another ultrasound so I got to see just how much the baby had grown in 4 weeks....He/She has arms, legs...and everthing now and was just dancing and waving to me. Too bad Mark missed this appointment the picutres just don't show that personality that I saw. Heartrate was 171.

For work today I had an appointment with Olga's (russian restaurant) about our upcoming Signature Chefs Auction. She insisted that there was an older lady that worked in the kitchen who was never wrong about predicting the sex of a baby. The poor lady was drug from her smoke break outside to come look me over and say quickly...."It's definatly a Girl". I guess in about 6 weeks we will find out if she was right.

Grant....I can't post without mentioning Grant. He is just fine. His first couple weeks of preschool were kinda tough on all of us...He was staying in trouble but seems to be doing good now. He loves his new friends and still talks about his freinds from the 2's. He is excited about being a big brother but I think he is tired of waiting. He asked me yesterday if the baby popped out at my appointment.

Thats all for now....

Big Brother!

April 3...is the big day. I am quite sure this baby will come before then but for now it is April 3. We are very excited about adding another member to our family. Grant wants a little sister really bad and I hope he won't be too disappointed if it turns out to be a boy. I guess because Grant thinks it is a girl that is what I am leaning towards but then again I can only imagine myself with all boys.

Due to the Medical Mystery as to why Grant came 6 weeks early, Dr Cole is keeping close eye on this baby. She is awesome...by the way. I will have an ultrasound at each visit so hopefully we will find out what we are having around October 9 (15 weeks). My blood pressure was a little high at my first visit but has seemed to stay down since then. Maybe I was just nervous/anxious.

Mark has not given me the official approval yet but I have decided on both boy and girl names. This baby will be named after the "New's" since we already have a Marcus Grant Nixon III. We can't just pick any random name with no meaning...family names only.

I attended my 10 year class reunion this past weekend and would love to post pictures but my computer has a virus and this page will shut down completly if I try to upload any...so for now...you only get to read. We had 30 out of 52 attend...I thought it was a great turnout. We had a great time catching up and I wish we could do it more often. I think there are 12 children with 3 babies on the way.

Friday Night we attended the WS vs Prep game and Dinner at Does
Saturday we toured the school and picnic on the playground
Saturday Night party at Cypress Hills....good band, good food, and good friends.

Need Help!

I changed my background and now the stupid header border will not change...it stayed like the old background...looks kinda silly.


how can i fix it?

Happy 3rd Birthday

















































Grant had the best time at his 3rd birthday....He had several sweet friends from school come and lots of family. We love this little boy so much and are so proud of him everyday. I never got emotional the whole day until i put him in his bed that night...I can't belive he is three years old....that sounds so grown up...He's not a baby anymore...I want to thank everyone who came for all the sweet presents...our house looks like ToyLand! What are we going to do with all this stuff....

long time..no post






































Wow...It has been a while since my last post! I guess I will try to post pictures as far back as Easter.....Only one more week until we go to Destin for 7 days! I can't wait...

Grant is growing so fast and is just Hilarious. I love having conversations with him in the car on the way to school every morning.

He will be turning 3 in a couple months and keeps asking.."is my birthday next..mama?" I think he is the youngest in his class..so we have many parties to go to before his! 2 this weekend!

Enjoy the pictures
