nothing like backyard fun with the family (emma loves watering)

Wow. The fair was long and fun. Our friends (Liz) and many others have encouraged me to put an update on this sweet blog. I’m sorry for my neglect. I am a wimp when it comes to this thing.

So… Happy 2009! ūüôā After the fun summer we traveled home to have some much needed family time with the Florida Barretts. Enjoyed a great visit, and the second week of January found out that we will be having a little boy in June. Nathan Scott Barrett will be an exciting addition to our family. Kyle has decided to show off his manhood of Facebook. I will be posting pictures soon of the family and girls.

A quick update on my sweet girls. Emma Jean is just under 28 months old¬† and¬†to call her a “live¬†wire” would be an understatement. She is so full of life and ready to learn every second. We have almost gotten rid of her pacifier and she talks more now than she ever¬†has.¬† It is so fun to¬†see how much she is growing from baby to child.¬† Jane Adair –¬†my sweet girl. She is almost 15 months old and her sweet cuddle¬†bug attitude is¬†something I can’t say enough about. To see her personality come to life is¬†just such fun.¬† God has overwhelmed my heart. I love these two little girls.

So Nathan Scott Barrett came on the scene June 5th 2009. He weighed in at 8lb 14oz. Yes these kids are out numbering me. We have really been having fun trying to get used to having three. It is such fun having a boy.

Thank you for waiting on us to post we love and thank each of you for your prayers for us. We love you Liz:>

Seriously, these pictures should have been put up awhile ago.¬† Sorry.¬† Ok, so Kyle and I have never gone to the fair together.¬† I have asked and asked him to go but he was never very interested in going.¬† Well fun fun this is the first year we went.¬† Two kids later but we went. ūüôā¬† Our great friends, Ryan and Emily McBride, went with us and we had a really good time.¬† I am so glad that we went this year.

Thanks for checking out our fun fair day. It was fun.

Kyle’s parents came into town the last weekend of August for a visit. I love when they come to see us, it is always fun times.¬†Emma and Jane got to spend some time with there Granna and Papa B. I think they wore them out. Miss Emma is very busy. ¬†The girls loved getting to see them.¬†

After many long busy days of us taking them on outings with the girls, Kyle and I loved keeping them up late to play cards. It is becoming a Barrett tradition. I really enjoy the competition between the girls and guys. Joyce and I own the Kyle and Scotty at cards. Thanksgiving rematches are in order.

Anyway, the Sizemores, who are old family friends of the Barrets, had a lunch date with Scotty and Joyce.  A plane ride came up in conversation over lunch.  Scotty jumped at the idea to take a ride in a bi-plane.  Lucky for us, Kyle and I both got to go for a ride too!  Here are a few pics of the weekend and the trip in the plane.

By the way…it was so amazing.

This was such a fun weekend. Thank you Joyce and Scotty for making the trip to come and see us. We love you.

Jane has been sitting up for about a month now and I am so proud of her. She is getting ready to be 6 months on the 24th. She is doing so well. Look out Emma here she comes. Check out my baby. She is so big and strong. Go Jane!!

she is so sweet

I know most of you checkout our blog to see those two sweet babies that I am honored to call mine, but before you get to see them I’d like you to read my ramblings. Life as a mom has been an up hill, learning experience for me. It has been such a time of relying on the Lord. I know God has carried me through these last 2 years as a mom. God new what the plan was when Kyle and I married – 2 babies in 2 years ūüôā – and I am so overwhelmed with humble love for that.

We are now entering into toddlerhood with Emma Jean. She brings me to tears with laughter more times than I can count. She’s an example of pure joy. To see her laugh makes me blubber. If I love her this much, how can I even explain God’s love for us.

My sweet baby, Jane Adair. She’s 4 months old and beginning to roll over and sit up on her own. I feel like I’m constantly looking at Kyle made over. She’s fun to sit and watch and just listen to. Miss motor mouth! She talks all the time. We are not sure at what or about what, but she’s a bit of a talker!

God has made my heart so big. It’s funny how much your time gets spread thin but your love and joy increases with more kids. Can anyone say L-U-K-E?! No, were not pregnant but I’ve already got the itch.

Quick question for anyone who can help – I am begining to look into some preschool prep material. I want to get Emma going on some school stuff later this year. Does anyone know of any good books or other resources I should look at to use with her? If you know of anything, please let me know.

Thanks and enjoy!

For those who’ve not heard yet, the pastor of my home church and his son were killed in a plane crash early Monday morning.¬† The family just received word today because of the difficulty search teams had in getting to the crash site.¬† Please be in prayer for the Pollock family.¬† He and his wife Dawn had 5 other children besides Preston, all under the age of 16.¬† You can read more about the situation at the church’s website or at the Tampa affiliate for CBS.

Kyle and I have had a busy year and 9 months and we are so excited to introduce the newest addition to our clan, Ms Jane Adair. She joined us on March 24th 2008 at 4.17 am, weighing in at 7 lbs 15 oz. For those who do not know that is a day apart from her big sister,¬†Emma Jean, whose birthday is March 25th.¬†Wow, no kidding –¬†fun year.¬† So here are some pictures of¬†our little blessing.

Now that you have met Jane please tell me who she looks like?  Do you think our boys might look like there mom?! Such a sweet blessing. Praise God for two healthy girls.

Last night Kyle and I had a chat¬†about our¬† family blog and how¬†inconsistent we’ve been in updating our family and friends with all that’s going on in our lives (We are sorry for that).¬†So, the¬†torch has officially been passed to me.¬† I am still¬†a novice when it comes to the blogosphere, so I may need some extra time to learn how to upload pictures and create a new post.

PS. The offical introduction of our second child, Miss Jane Adair Barrett, will come soon.
