Family Pics

So I guess I just need to come to terms with the fact that this blogging thing is just not my forte... I just can't seem to keep up with it! Maybe I'll get better someday...
It's been a pretty busy, what, month and a half? TJ and I found out we're expecting baby #2!! We actually have an ultrasound this week where we'll find out the gender! I've been much more sick than I was with Steven, though I've only actually thrown up once. Now that I'm out of my first trimester, things have gotten a little better, though not as much as I would have hoped. I guess as long as it keeps improving, maybe I'll be feeling great by the time the baby comes!
TJ's been busy applying to optometry school. He applied to 3 schools and has had 2 interviews so far, and gotten accepted to both (Houston and Indiana)! He has one more this weekend in Memphis. So we'll see how that one goes, but it looks like his odds are pretty good. :) We're excited for all the interviews to be over, though, so we can make a final decision on where we're going!
Amid all of this craziness, we decided we needed to make time to take family pictures before it got too cold (and ugly) outside. My amazing friend Nicole took them (of course) even though she was getting ready to have a baby in a week! She did a fabulous job with them :)

These are from a night we hung out with a couple of my friends from Macomb. I guess Steven has a girlfriend! (I'm trying to hold him back, but he really wanted to kiss Ashlynn!)

Ooo, I might want to steal one of those family pics for my Christmas letter -- if we could make it work. Love the shot of Baby Steve getting up close and personal with Ashlynn -- haha!

We definitely could make it work. I have the pictures all on my computer, so I could just email one to you. Just let me know which one!

Wow!! Those were amazing pictures. She did a great job. They all looked SO good. Can I just say that Steven has the cutest smile EVER. How could you ever get mad at a face like that?! You must just constantly want to be kissing his cheeks. SO cute!

The kids LOVED the picture of Steven kissing his girlfriend. Very cute. You're going to have to keep an eye on that one. =)

You DO look so beautiful Julia! {as always} My mom was saying when she was here that you have gorgeous eyes. so true.

Steve and I just remembered that you have to give Wymount a 30 day move out notice and it's coming up next week :( I think it's finally hit me and I am so sad. Maybe we will follow you to Indiana ;)

Those pictures made my day! Not being able to see you guys is so hard. Thank goodness for technology, and for wonderful, kind, talented friends who share their talents so unselfishly! Steven is incredibly cute. But, then, what could you expect, considering his parents!
