Here are some pics from more late night fun. I love it when we are in our jammies....passing the late night hours (witching hours I call them) until time to hit the bed! Here is Maddy in her car...minding her own business (well, mostly our business trying to get dinner ready) when Thomas decides he will give her a little help from behind....toooooo funny!

Good report with the Rheumatologist yesterday.....it was so good to be back with my longtime Dr. and nurses. The appt. took sooooo much longer than I expected. We (Nana, the angels and I) arrived at 3:20 for my 3:30pm appt and didn't leave until 5:30. He did a full exam though. Who knew....having babies back to back and having lupus is not really good for the body (oops).....but I've got God on my side who blessed me with all three of my angels and He will keep us all healthy and safe...I know it! I did get orders to seek rest as much as possible (yea right) and to watch for any signs of flares. He also supported my choice to come off my meds. All in all it was good. The angels were such good sports for Nana in the waiting room and Nana is such a GREAT sport and GREAT Nana! We then had to hit Sams as I was out of diapers....We finally made it home in time for dinner...play....and bedtime. What a busy day.....good day.....but busy day! Hope you all have a Great Day! BLESSINGS!

sooooo good to see them smiling after the last two weeks of teething. I do know more teething is to come as they have the matching teeth that need to come in but so far so good...we will enjoy all the smiles we can get! Not even 10 months and they each have 6 teeth already! It is amazing how they do it at the same time...hard on us all but a shared twinsie experience nonetheless!

We call this "Baby Yoga"
Emma and Uncle Shannon spent a day at Shipwreck
What a big boy!
The Three -Legged Crawl
The following pics are not fancy by any means...just real life around here. A couple of them are leftover from PC and the condo. Notice my beautiful....spunky...artistic niece Emma. I teased her and called her a Jamaican Hand-me-down....she got all dolled up with a hair braid, wrapped necklace and anklet and henna tattoo.....what fun!!! I will also include a pic of her at Shipwreck. Her awesome Uncle Shannon treated her to a day of fun, sun, and water.....what a blast for a gal about to enter the 3rd grade! She told Shannon she will never forget it! I think he had just as much fun! The others are from one of our family nights of fun. Shannon and I enjoy our nights of crawling and playing with Thomas and Maddy on the hardwoods just before putting the angels down for bed. They love to dare us by going after cords and shoes....we are having to work hard on the "NO" concept!!!! Hope you have a blessed day!!!

I had my ultrasound with the specialist, Dr. Stauffer, on Monday. Everything appeared right on target and I again received confirmation that our little one is another princess! The name we have chosen is Morgan Campbell. Come December, we hope to have a very healthy and happy Thomas, Madelynn, and Morgan Smith! God is so good!!! Please continue to pray for our little angel....all three of our angels! Thomas and Maddy are both teething and staying very active with that! They will soon have 4 teeth on top and 2 on bottom...each! I am also busy working to prepare for my Chez Ami Fall Trunk Shows in August and still trying to get us settled! We did get Driver's Licenses today. Next come the tags! I will continue to keep you posted on our busy lives.....our busy but most blessed lives!!! Have a great day!

We are finally "Home Sweet Home"!!! We enjoyed our week away but I have to admit....we are much more exhausted than when we left. Vacationing with two angels that love their routines is hard work. Sleep was almost nonexistent....and restlessness did overcome us at times. We also found out one reason for Thomas' increased restlessness.....he sprouted yet another tooth while we were away. That makes for 3 on top and 2 on bottom for him and 2 on top and 2 on bottom for Maddy...and they are only 9 1/2 months! Bless them...teething is hard on everyone! Again, we are glad to be home but enjoyed our week!!! Thank you Nana and Poppy and Emma for all your help at the beach!!! The angels love their cousin Emma!!! I wish I could move her in with me! Hope you enjoy a few of the beach pics Shannon took....he is so good at capturing our angels! Please say an extra prayer for us tomorrow. I have an ultrasound with the specialist for my lupus....and Shannon can not attend. I am so very sad but totally understand! I can hardly wait to see our little princess....we are 19 weeks. Thank you Nonnie and Great-Grandmother and Mrs. Alice for stepping in to help me out! I won't know what to do with myself when I get in the angel-mover without the angels tomorrow!

Here are a few more pics to share...these were taken by Shannon's camera....
As for today, the angels and I are trying to relax a bit. Sleep was a bit hard last night....Shannon took Emma (my sweet niece that will be 8 soon) to Shipwreck and Nana and Poppy are going to try and catch a movie. Just a statement....I bet the Walmart here in PC is one of the busiest and most profitable ones around. I stopped in for diapers and formula and it was a mad house! People just seem to by anything that says Florida on it.....and do they really eat all that junk food! Crazy!!!!

Day 3 at the Beach
We are officially at Regency Towers now...my grandmother's condo. My parents and niece, Emma are here with us as well. We all enjoyed a great dinner out last night. Maddy slept a bit better last night as well...still not great, but better. We'll take what we can get! I caught some cute pics of the angels yesterday all wrapped up in each other. Notice...Thomas is rubbing Maddy's feet while Maddy dines on his bottle! I then got them straight with the bottles! In another pic is Thomas taking a much needed rest prior to heading out for dinner. Maddy can wear him out! The angels woke this morning and enjoyed a big breakfast and cartoons. Here is Maddy with her Poppy and Thomas still in his boxers. What a great way to start the day!
