I know i haven't been a good blogger, things with us have been CRAZY. I finally have a little bit of time to do the update on what has been going on.
First things first, in march just after Caitlyn's birthday we put our house up for sale and it SOLD with in 12 hours of being on the market. Also, it was going to be a quick closing so we had one month to get everything arranged, plane tickets, moving truck, packing, and saying good bye to our dear friends. But we did it and with little hassle, and in the beginning of May Caitlyn and I flew out to Washington and stayed with my mom for a few weeks while the super hero daddy stayed behind to finish the packing, close of the house, and do 2 weeks on of work. We were very blessed to have Brian's younger brother Chrisfly out and drive to Washington with Brian. We are now living in Tumwater, WA in an apartment and we have the most wonderful view anyone could ask for. On sunny days(yes there have been lots) we can see mnt. Rainer from out dining room window and patio. We are loving it here and are so glad to be back, we do miss our friends from Louisiana dearly and with we could have moved them here with us also.

While all this was going on we were very excited to find out that we are expected baby Marlatt #2. So far this pregnancy has been a trying one, I have been so sick that even taking medication that suppose to help doesn't all the time. But i know this will be all worth it in the end when i get to hold the little on in my arms. I am due THANKSGIVING DAY, so i am cooking a turkey for 9 months...LOL
Around 11 weeks right before i left Lafayette we were able to get a ultra sound to see the one and everything looked great. it was so nice to be able to the baby knowing it would be a while before i found another doctor.I was lucky enough to find one near our place and it is part of the hospital that i will deliver at. While at my first appointment with the nurse i had the genetic blood test done and a week later i had my appointment with my doctor. While see my doctor i was told that the blood test came back and that there is a chance that the baby could have Spina Bifida and that they were sending us to a specialist for complete testing and a level 2 ultrasound, which is an hour long ultrasound and they will look at every inch of the baby. We are just looking at the bright side of things now and we are lucky that instead of a 10 minute look at our baby we will get 1 hour. Our appointment if July 5 and on that day we are going to find out the sex of the baby!!!!

So that's what has been up with us these last 4 months.

Caitlyn Version 2.0

It is hard to believe, but Caitlyn is now 2 years old. Where has the time gone??? This year we opted out of a big party and just decided to do a little family thing. Since we are cleaning and getting the house ready to sell it was just easier this way. We still had a blast, first off Cailtyn decided to start to open her present before we were even in there. That little stinker. She got lots of cool toys and clothes from her grandmas and grandpas and even very awesome friends of our the Noaks.

The big pile of present and the pretty dresses that Grandma Marlatt got her. One of the dresses she even made for her!!!!
Caitlyn LOVES her sit and spin, she is spin on it and watch TV all at the same time. I'm still not sure how she does it...

Grandpa and Grandma McMahan got Caitlyn this very Awesome Wii Game for her. It's all about dancing with it and Caitlyn's favorite part is it play not one, not two, but three WIGGLES songs. She is a dancing Queen.

Grandma Howard got Caitlyn this cute horsey and it has become one of her favorites (along with her George). She takes it everywhere and shows it to everyone....
So this present from Grandma Howard Caitlyn is still not sure of, when you turn it on it laughs and rolls around the floor. When she walks pass it she growls at it...i think it's funny.

One of two wiggles DVDs she got and we have watched them over and over and over again

This is a Leap Frog LapTop that our friends Spencer and Shannon Noak sent her. It was a total surprise and she is still ecstatic about it. She carries it all over the house with her and setting it down and playing with it...

Yum, Yum, yum red velvet Cake with cream cheese is my new favorite cake.....

Videos of Caitlyn opening her presents!!!!

weekend with daddy in Morgan City

There was a shrimp and petroleum festival going on in the city of Morgan City which is the city where Brian works in. PHI is gracious enough to let us use some hotel rooms they have rented and Caitlyn and I went down to spend some time with daddy and have some fun. The festival it self was actually pretty boring, well all the bands didn't start playing until past Caitlyn's bed time. The food though was fantastic!!!! There is a flight museum in a town near by, so we went to check it out and unfortunately it was closed because of the festival, so we looked at a couple of air crafts that were outside. Caitlyn loved running underneath the jets. She would even duck when she didn't need to. As you see she is loving have her picture taken, just look at the picture of her and Brian and her cheese face.

Right when we got in to our hotel room she made the desk hers and set it up as a desk. She loved the phone more than anything we have to disconnect both phones in the room so that way she didn't make any phones calls...LOL
