Little one's Prayers

There aren't many things I love more than listening to my children talk to God.  They are so honest and sweet :). Last night, however, they both had serious requests that made me giggle quietly to myself...

Grace: "Dear God, thank you for giving us grain to eat, help us to eat grain, but not too much."

Collin: "Dear God, help Grace not to fall out of her bed.  Help her not to dream she is rolling down a hill and just keep rolling and rolling and rolling until she really rolls out of her bed."

Love these little ones!

20 Weeks!!

Where have the past 20 weeks disappeared to??  I feel like I blinked my eyes & the pregnancy is half-way through.  I am feeling great, and am feeling our sweet boy kicking inside of me all the time!  I am one of those people who are blessed with easy pregnancies, and I am cherishing every little moment and movement...especially knowing this is likely our last baby.

Here is my 20-week "bump" picture :)

We have officially decided on a name for our sweet baby boy:

Mason Tyler Vuong

Can't wait to meet him!!

Baby Talk

A few of my favorite questions/comments from Collin & Grace about the baby...

(While leaving a "sample" at a recent doctors appointment)
G: why are you using that cup?
Me: the doctor checks it, and it can tell her if the baby is doing well.
G:  is that baby Mason's pee pee coming out in the cup?!?!  Is he peeing in that cup??


(After noticing that there's not quite as much room to sit comfortably in my lap)
C: I know that your lap is disappearing, but it's okay, it will be back after the baby is born.  I learned about that from Berenstain Bears.

Baby #3

We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our third sweet blessing!  Collin & Grace will welcome their baby brother in September :)

Final score:

Boys - 3
Girls - 2

I told Grace that it was a good thing...that just means more boys to spoil us and take care of us :)

All About Collin

I cannot believe that this sweet boy will be 6 next month!!  

He is in Kindergarten, and as much as I was dreading sending my first baby to school, it has been a wonderful experience for all of us.  He absolutely loves his school and his teacher, and I am loving being a PTA mom :)

He is still super-hero obsessed, and loves pretending to be a ninja.  His favorite movie lately is Big Hero 6.  He also loves art, soccer, and playing outside!

Favorite food: corn dogs
Favorite animal: shark
Favorite color: blue & green

He is a very sweet and affectionate boy, who loves to snuggle - this makes mommy so very happy :).

We have started reading chapter books at bedtime, his favorites so far have been The Boxcar Children, Hank The Cowdog, and My Fathers Dragon.

Now that we are in Arkansas, we have had some actual snow, and Collin loves playing in the cold!  However, he also asks regularly when we can go to the beach or the pool.  I think he is as ready for summer as I am!!

Mommy loves this sweet sweet boy!!

All Things Grace

I am ashamed at how long it has been since my last post!!  First I feel like an update on Collin & Grace are overdue.  Up first...Princess Grace.

Her current obsessions are gymnastics, Daniel Tiger, babies, and Dora the Explorer.

She started Awana Cubbies at our new church & loves it!!  She feels like such a big girl doing her lesson and memorizing her verse each week just like her big brother :). She also loves going to BSF weekly with mommy, and calls her BSF class her "school".  She asks regularly when she can go to Kindergarten and be in Mrs. Moses' class :)

She is strong-willed, and has Daddy wrapped around her finger!  She knows that if she's upset that Son will do anything he can to fix it...even if mommy already said "no" :)

Much to mommy's disgust, she loves mixing her food.  Dipping strawberries in spaghetti sauce, putting taco cheese in her applesauce, and anything mixed in Mac-n-cheese are normal for her.  Grosses me out, but she will eat almost anything like that, so I try to look the other way :)

Favorite animal:  horse
Favorite food: Mac & Cheese
Favorite color: purple & pink

She is my sidekick and constant companion.  We are enjoying our time at home since we moved & mommy is soaking up every moment until she starts Pre-K part time next year!

It's A Pink Kitty!!

I am always laughing at what comes out of Collin's mouth, and try to document what I can remember (which isn't much, haha!).  However, lately Grace has been competing with her brother for the title of family clown!  She understands making a joke now, and frequently says the wrong answer to a question just to be silly.  She will do anything to make her brother laugh :)  Today while driving home from Collin's school we were taking turns playing the "I'm Thinking of an Animal" game where one person thinks of an animal in their mind and the others take turns asking questions to guess what it is.

Grace is very smart, and fully capable of playing the game correctly, however she loves to say "YES" to anything you ask her & knows that she can answer the questions incorrectly or make up false information to be funny.  Here is how her turn went:

Grace: I am thinking of an animal.

Me: Does it swim in the water?
G: No.  It has a pink nose!

Collin: Does it live in the jungle?

Me: Is it a monkey?
G: No

Collin: Is it a tiger?
G: No.  It has a pink nose!

Me: Does it have fur?
G: It has pink fur!

Me: I don't know any jungle animals with a pink nose and pink fur.
G: Its a pink kitty!!!  (Laughing hysterically)

She cracks us up, just like her brother does :)
