Ultrasound Pics

These may not be the clearest, but I think you get the picture. The first one is of the head and chest. The others were of a hand and a foot. Now everyone can take a guess at what we are having. Somedays Devin wants a brother and others he wants a sister. Guess we will find out in about 3 short months. The doc said everything looks good and it will probably be a small baby.
Devin had his toddler check-up today with Dr Nieset. He said he is very tall for his age 33 1\2 inches tall and 26lbs. Everything checked out good. Could not believe how well he could talk. Somedays I can't believe it either.

This was taken 2 years ago Christmas of Grandma and Grandpa Siefert. What a Christmas that was. Little did we know that would be the last Christmas spent as a family. The following year G-pa went into the nursing home and G-ma could always be found right there by his side everyday. They were a couple of strong faith and strong commitment to each other. Grandma got sick with her heart and lungs in the middle of December. Although she lived a good many years making her grace and presence of God on this earth, she past on to be with him Dec 11, 2007. We miss her dearly. Only now was the real trial trying to keep grandpa healthy and strong to live on without her by his side everyday. We know she was always with him in spirit.
We all have been trying to keep G-pa up in his spirits. He has been battling his sickness(alzheimers) in the nursing home for 16 months now. He was always a jolly man with a great big grin on his face. It saddens me to say he got sick too and died from pneumonia on Jan 7, 2008. Almost a month from the day of G-ma Siefert's passing. We all know they wanted nothing more but to be together in good health. Bet in heaven they are up there smiling down on us playing cards with there friends and having fun together. David and I know we will meet with them one day again.
I can only hope this year will bring better days ahead for all of the Siefert family. 2 funerals in 1 month is very hard. Something nobody wants to go through. David went from having 4 grandparents to just 2 very quickly. As I always told him cherish your grandparents as you will never no when something can happen. I only have one living. We will always tell Devin how proud his Great G-ma and G-pa Siefert were of him. G-ma always said that if they were ornery you know they were always normal. Will in fact Devin is very normal cause he is always ornery. Next time I hope to write more of a upbeat post. This year can only get better. Especially with a new little one coming in only a few months.

I decided to repaint my bathroom. I fell in love with blues and greens and found this awesome shower curtain. Nothing fancy but I liked it. Took a week to finish it since the paint would not stick. So my mom finished it in the midst of all the drama we've been put through this year already. Thanks mom looks awewsome. I don't think it looks to bad for being a old home.

2nd birthday (Dec 29)

This was Devin's birthday cake. He loves the digger and dump truck on it. The other is a pic of Devin opening many of his presents. Then came the big gift from Grammy and Poppy. The kids loved it so much they got inside and played. When I can't find Devin around the house I always know he is in the barn playing.

On the fifth day of Christmas

This was the last and final christmas for the year. Devin was way to spoiled at all the other party's that I thought we would have to build a bigger house. Well I guess grandparents can't help but spoil there own grandkids. We all made out really good this year. Devin especially. He got more clothes and toys plus a motorized 4-wheeler from santa hiler. Mom thought it would be neat to buy all the kiddos bikes except devin is just to little for a bike yet. Maybe next year santa. He did like the 4-wheeler. We even had to ride it outside too. Over he made out really good, but we do need a bigger house now.
