Dear Family & Friends,

I do not have a face to see,
Or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss.
I don't yet have a name.

Not yet can you hold my tiny hands,
Nor whisper in my ear.
It's still too soon to sing a song,
Or cuddle me so near.

But all that will change come this March;
When they say I am due.
I am the newest Graf baby;
And I can't wait until I meet you!

All I ask between now and then
Is your love for me to grow.
I promise I'll be worth the wait;
Just think of all the joy we'll know!

So as you're waiting patiently,
Please pray lots of prayers for me.
I cannot wait to be a part
Of this wonderful family!

Well friends, we are obviously thrilled to announce that we are pregnant! I have not yet been to the Dr. since I am a little over 5 weeks now and they usually don't see you until you are at least 8 weeks. Makayla is VERY excited about being a big sister and keeps kissing my belly! She is always asking about the baby, it's so cute! The only bad thing is that I am extremely nauseous. I was never like this with Makayla, so this is a new experience. I have eaten toast and starches, but that doesn't seem to help. I may have to call the Dr. for some meds because I can't seem to get this under control. I don't even feel like eating most of the time, but I have to for the baby, so it's just a constant battle. Other than that, things are going pretty well! We are even more excited about this because 2 of our neighbors are pregnant as well as my best friend!! So I finally get to be pregnant with someone for a change! Haha! Alright, well I just wanted to share our good news! Hope you all have a great week!

Hello (Taps on screen), you there?

Howdy, my name is Sharon. You may remember me from some snarky posts way back when, but I am finally back! Seriously. No, really, I am. So right after school ended, I taught a summer school class for 3 weeks in June. It was fun and all, but I was definitely ready for my official summer to begin! Now I have NO obligations and complete freedom for the next 6-7 weeks! Whohoo!

We have officially booked our San Antonio trip as well! We are so excited! You may remember me telling you how much Makayla is into sea animals right now, so this is gonna be so awesome for her! As a little preview, we took her this past weekend to the Downtown Aquarium, and man did she have a good time! We actually got to pet stingrays! STINGRAYS PEOPLE!! It was so awesome!! They are so soft! I couldn't believe it!! We also got to see tigers, sharks, sawfish, an octopus, and lots of other animals! By the time we left, poor Makayla was exhausted.
I even bought a new camera for our trip. My other digital was starting to get really slow when taking pics, even if I had an empty memory card and my pics are also getting blurry! So I bought a newer version of my old one and it is nice! I will definitely post some pics when we get back!

So we are 2 days away from July 4th! I love this holiday! We are getting together with all our friends to grill some good food, swim and watch some fireworks! What are you all doing for the 4th?
