Cheer Clinic

Okay, here are the pictures of the girls with "their" cheerleader from the RHS Cheer Clinic last monday. I didn't take any pictures of them dancing last night, but Doug got it on the video camera. I will have to see if there is any way he can upload the video onto the computer.... The girls had alot of fun dancing though and it was really cute. They definitely weren't shy about getting in front of people and performing!

Some baby news...

Okay, I know I promised some pictures and I promise I will get around to that soon! But I just thought I would give everyone the latest update on the Crowe Clan.

Kids are doing great! Doogie is enjoying basketball and cubscouts. He has his cubscout derby race tomorrow and he's very excited about racing his car!

Jayde and Ryann went to a cheerleading camp on Monday (the coach took a couple pictures of the girls with "their" cheerleader and I will try to post those soon. They had a blast doing it and they still go around doing the cheers they learn (with their little brothers now joining in! LOL!) Tomorrow they have a dance camp and then they will perform the routine they learned at the high school basketball games half time tomorrow night! So I can't wait to see it!

Jaxon and CJ are busy guys. Lately it's been like wrestle mania between them two! They love to wrestle eachother. I've been having to seperate them alot because I'm afraid they are going to hurt eachother! CJ is doing awesome on the potty, I think we can safely say he is officially potty trained! YEAH! Only took him two weeks, he caught on really fast!

I had my doctor appointment today and the baby is doing good. I am 4cm dialated and 70% effaced already (I am 35 weeks and 5 days along right now). It sounds like if I don't end up going into labor on my own before 38-39 weeks that they will induce me since I'm considered high risk (because of the antibody E situation). So as of now I get to have a stress test and ultrasound done every week until I deliver. The stress test is basically they put a couple monitors on my stomach (one for the heartbeat and another one to catch any contractions I have if any) and then I have a little buzzer type thing that I push whenever I feel the baby move. Pretty simple and I get to relax in a nice comfy chair as I do it! Today we were laughing because every time she would get the monitor in place for the heartbeat and then try to get the belt in place to keep the monitor there the baby would move and she would have to start all over again! I think it took her about 10 minutes to finally get it on! So anyways, the big question is...will Cassie come on her own or will she wait until I get induced? I have a baby pool set up so if you would like to enter some guesses go to: The game name is TheSixthCrowe (and you have to type it in exactly like spaces). So happy guessing everyone! :)

Happy New Year!

I see I'm a little behind on my blogging once again! I keep meaning to blog, but something (or I guess someone or someones) have distracted me from my goal! So let's see if I can catch everyone up on what has been happening with the Crowe family.

We had a nice Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve over at my parents house for dinner and the kids opened up some presents over there. Then we stayed home for Christmas and my parents came over later to enjoy some raclette with us and of course play some Mario Kart on the Wii! I tell you that game is very addictive! It was fun watching the kids open their presents up, Christmas just seems to mean so much more when you get to share it with little ones!

Jaxon turned the big 4 on New Year's Eve. We just hanged out at home for his birthday since that was the day we got hit with the big snow storm and the roads were a mess. So on New Years Day we went to Red Robin with both sets of Grandparents to celebrate. He got all shy when the waiters/waitresses sang happy birthday to him, it was pretty cute! He had a good birthday though and loved his presents (which all seemed to have something to do with cars/trucks!)

To start off the new year, we decided to work on getting Mr. CJ potty trained. I have to say that he is doing really well with it (knock on wood). I think we might actually have the peeing down, he really hasn't had too many of those types of accidents since the first couple days or so that we started. Now the pooping on the other hand isn't going quite as well, but I'm hoping that it will all click into place for him soon. Good thing he only does #2 once day!! I even sent him in his underwear to school today. I had thought about putting some pull-ups on him, but decided that he has been doing such a great job at using the potty that we would give it a shot (and he stayed dry at school and didn't have an accident)!

On the baby front everything is looking good! Hard to believe it's only a month or so away! We rearranged the kids room over the holidays to make room for everyone. Ryann get's to bunk in the same room as the baby, so she's pretty excited about that. My last doctor's appointment was on New Year's Eve and she was sounding nice and healthy! At my last ultrasound she was measuring/weighing about 2 weeks ahead of schedule. Doug thinks she's going to make her appearance at the beginning of February. So we'll see what happens! I did finally get around to setting up a baby pool since a few people have asked me about it. So if your interested in putting in a guess just follow this link:

So anyways, that's pretty much all that's been happening over here! I need to upload the pictures from my camera to the computer and go through them all so I can post some more recent pictures here. I will try to get to that soon! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. Hope this year brings everyone lots of joy and happiness!
