going to be a BIG BROTHER!!! SUPRISE! I cannot believe Brandon is going to have a brother or sister. We are very excited that we will be adding a new addition to our family!!! I am 8 weeks right now and our due date is October 25th! So far, I have some nausea. Drinks seem to make me nauseated the most so for now I am sticking with apple juice and water, sounds delicious doesn't it, but it is better than throwing up. I go back to the doctor on March 31 so I will post more details soon. Hopefully we will find out if its a boy or girl in april/may, we definitely do not care either way we just want a fat healthy baby!

Brandon is turning 3 next friday, on march 20th and we will have his party on saturday! I am very excited, I love planning his party and getting everything ready for his special day. We are so blessed to have such a sweet precious boy We just love him more than anything in the world and I thank God every day that I am his mommy. There is nothing in the world better. Right now he loves playing with all kinds of animals, he has a bucket full that go in the bathtub every night! He loves trains and trucks and playing outside. We are going to get him a swing set for his birthday this year so hopefully he will love playing on that. We go to the doctor for his 3 year checkup so I can't wait to see how tall he is and how much he weighs. I will post pics next week of his party and I hope every one has a great week!!

Zachary Aaron Simonetti

Michael's brother Vic and his wife Kristen had their first baby boy on Saturday March 7th! He weighed 7 lbs 12 ounces and is 20 1/2 inches long. He is so perfect and precious and Brandon LOVESSSSSS his baby cousin. He is constantly asking about him and when we are around him he has to be holding him. I was so proud of the way Brandon just took to Zachary and loved him at first sight!!! We love having our first nephew too. He will definitely be spoiled in this family! I have to tell the story of how she went into labor! Michael, me and Brandon and kristen and vic went to eat at Sumo's on friday night. We were just about finished eating when Kristen stood up and said "Leslie, something just gushed out!" I said "huh" and We ran to the bathroom with brandon holding on to one arm and Kristen on the other. We went into the bathroom but were still unsure of what happened all of a sudden Kristen's water broke in the bathroom and she was soaked. We still had to walk out of the bathroom with many people seeing what was going on, as we walked out we had people cheering for her and vic!! It was so funny, she was so calm through the whole thing and I was so proud of her and Vic. So, off to the hospital we headed and zachary was born at 740 in the morning on Saturday. I know she will not forget this experience and neither will we, it was definitely exciting!!

Fun in the snow!

I have a lot of updating to do from the last month, sometimes I can be so bad at this blogging thing because it takes my pics so long to download. Anyways, we had a great time playing in the snow, but after Brandon got wet and cold he was ready to go in for the day.. It was definitely COLD outside but we enjoyed it because we probably won't see that much snow for a while.
