Two Cute Pictures

Alex saying "cheese"!  Not real sure why he closes his eyes when he smiles like that :)

In the next one, he packed his "pack-pack" (travel backpack) with the essentials - a giggle turtle, pair of slippers, notepad and a plastic toy fan.  He told me that he was leaving on a jet-plane to see Aunt Jenny in Colorado...and then told me "bye-bye"!  Such a funny little kid :)

Guess Who's Going to be a BIG BROTHER?!?

Larry, Alex and I are so excited to announce that Baby Cothren #2 will be joining us in April 2011!  My official due date is April 16, but since I will have a c-section we will probably have him/her the week before!  I am about 11 weeks along.  

We saw a nice, strong heartbeat on August 23, 2010 and the baby looks to be growing right on schedule!

As most of you know, Larry and I have been trying for quite awhile for this baby and we couldn't be happier to be able to share this wonderful news with all of you!

Alex knows that there is a baby in Mommy's belly and kisses the baby often.  He includes the baby in his nightly prayers - my heart smiles hearing those sweet words!

We appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers and can't wait to continue to update you on this pregnancy!

Just playing around...

We took Alex outside to enjoy the great (but hot) weather we are having!  We made him a make-shift sandbox and he is totally in love with it.  We took a large rubbermaid container, filled it with sand and gave him a bucket and shovels.  He has spent quite a bit playing in the sand and building sand castles!
