Just a couple things floating through my noggin the past bit...
Lyla will be 4 months on Thanksgiving! Holy moly! She is just a good baby. It is so fun to watch her grow and learn new things. I love when she snuggles me and laughs at silly things. It is joyous when she sees me walk into the room and she kicks her legs, throws her head back in delight, and gets beyond giddy...It gets me beyond giddy.
Still trying to buy a house... but it looks like it probably wont go through. It has been quite the test of endurance and patience. Kelly has been so positive about it all and has nearly killed himself trying to take care of everything. But if we end up not getting it, we really believe its for the good, and we will end up where we need to be.
I need to start a blog about my lil fam... and leave this one for my randomness... that is my goal this coming long 5 day weekend! Yahoo! I am trying to decide what to call it... Kelly and Amber? A&K Horrocks? Kelly, Amber, One...and Counting? haha! Let me know if there are any clever ideas out there.

I am officially a MOM now... a MOM!!! I never thought that I would ever hold that title... let alone be in love with that title. I want to have an honest moment here… I was terrified to have a baby... to be a mom! I never felt that it was me, or that I could live up to that. I was scared that I would have to give up a part of me or that it would not feel right. I was even worried that I would have to be a little more selfless and less selfish. It freaked me out that I was being entrusted with a special little piece of heaven.
But... I had to set all those fears and insecurities aside and open the door to motherhood!
I am absolutely, head over heels, IN LOVE with my little LYLA, my own little piece of heaven. Sure it is still terrifying at times... but it’s a good terror, because it is an adventure! I have not lost myself... maybe my waistline, and some of my wardrobe... but having this sweet little girl in my life has definitely lead me to find more of who I really am. I feel so blessed to have her, to learn and grow, and to watch her learn and grow. She is so darn cute, and she makes me feel joy that I have never felt before. It sure can be overwhelming, and stressful at times, but when she smiles at me, or wraps her tiny hands around my finger, it somehow it all worth it...I'M A MOM!!!

Only 18 more days until Summer Vacay! The countdown is exciting, but counting down that also counts down until baby... eek! Exciting, but so scary. Less than 9 weeks... that’s only 2 months! Holy Moly... I basically have nothing ready…but who really IS ever ready?! At least our baby will understand the importance on spontaneity ;)
Back to work...

After leaving the doc office, we wanted to tell our families right away… So we ran to the party supply store and got balloons in the color associated with this gender. Kelly had got a big box from U-Haul, and we put the inflated balloons in the box. On the front I put a sign that said “IT’S A……..”. A couple of balloons popped inside box before they got to be surprised… and of course I cried (Hormones again!).
My sister, April, was highly anticipating this moment… for who knows how long. I was afraid for this moment to be honest. Because when we announced to my family I am prego… I almost lost a limb… Maybe even my head... in the wrath of her excitement. Kelly and I presented them with the box, April opened it and colorful PINK balloons escaped from the ginormous box! It was so fun to tell them this way… and no, I didn’t lose any limbs or leave their house in bruises… she kept her thrilled emotions to limit.
Kelly and I couldn't be more thrilled for a little baby GIRL! She is going to be such an incredible little lady! I can’t wait to dress her and do her hair… I know, a tad selfish. I have a lot of things to work on and prepare for when she joins us...eeeeek, only 17 more weeks! I will always want her to know how beautiful she is, to never be afraid, and to follow her dreams.

Kelly and I have this thing where we kinda like to scare one another… ok… maybe it’s me really enjoying scaring him. I have got him really good a couple of times! Bahaha! Just thinking about the expression on his face as he looked like he was going to cry and hyperventilate at the same time, makes me want to plan out my next Scream scene! He is this big tough, “Because I am a man” Man, and it brings such a sense of fulfillment when he turns into a little scared girl for a few moments in time. But when it comes to scaring me, he does not have to go through any particular planning… he just walks casually into the kitchen, and my Ninja moves come out. I may have to get that checked out… I even had my breath taken away yesterday, by some ice in the bathroom sink at work. In my defense, it was out of the ordinary and I thought it was a giant bug! Or maybe I can just blame it on me being pregnant… increased anxiety? Sounds as good as an excuse as any. Did I just make you jump out of your seat?! JUMP JUMP!
