family of four :)

Big news in the Surratt household this month! We are having another baby and Maggie Claire is going to be a big sister!!! Of course we are all really excited, and can not wait to meet this new little one! 
My due date is February 28th, but I'm guessing the baby will be here before that because I'll have a scheduled csection (I had a csection last time w/mc). 
I took a pregnancy test while Mike was at work and got a positive, so I wanted to do something fun to tell him we are expecting. I immediately threw on some cute clothes, got out the tripod and made a little setup! These pictures turned out cute, I love her sassy expression in the top right picture. hilarious! The funny thing is, Mike saw the picture of the pregnancy test on my ipad before I showed him these pictures. He said "why did you take a picture of a pregnancy test if you're not pregnant?" I said, "Mike, I am! read the lines!!!" It was really funny, and then I showed him these pictures. He is really excited too. 

Here is the sweet little gummy bear! It felt so real seeing the baby on the screen for the first time, especially that fluttering heartbeat. The baby's heartrate was 167 beats per minute and measuring right on track at 7 weeks and 5 days. 
This is going to be so fun comparing the two babies during my pregnancy. At Maggie Claire's first ultrasound, her hearbeat was 136 bpm. Now, I'm wondering if it's a boy?!?! who knows, we will be happy with either one and I can't wait to find out! I'll be 9 weeks on Thursday, and I am definitely ready to be done with all this queasiness and all the fatigue. All I can think about are those sweet sixteen white powdered donuts, yum... no wonder I can't button my pants anymore! haha

    offspring a reward from him."

to: dada love: mags

 I have to say that I am truly blessed by my amazing husband. I don't brag on him as much as I should, but he is amazing! He is the best husband to me, and he is a super daddy to Maggie Claire. He comes home from work, lets Mags climb all over him, and enjoys every minute of it. I can't be more blessed! 
 Maggie Claire is REALLY into shoes right now, When it's time to leave, she makes sure everyone has their shoes on before we walk out the door. When we get home, she makes sure everyone takes their shoes off. When we are home throughout the day she wants to wear "booooots" in the summertime. Then occasionally she puts on Mike's shoes and tries to walk in them. She says, "dada shoes, dada shoes, dada shoes!!" It's funny how much she loves shoes. {she gets it from her grandmas, i'm sure}
 When I married Mike, he knew I would be dragging him to the beach, and as I'm walking behind him taking this picture, I couldn't help but smile. Best dad and hubby award right here!!! ;)
 Nothing is better than hoping up on daddy's lap for some ice. {if you want mags to come sit with you, offer her ice, she will come}

Jumping and swinging with Daddy is fun too! 

 Thanks babe for being the best daddy to Maggie Claire, and the best husband to me! We have lots of surprises for you today, and we hope you love them!!!! 
Happy Father's Day!!!
love, Maggie Claire

NYC part 2

I'm still thinking about all the fun we had in NYC, and I wanted to share some more pics of our trip!

One of the subway entrances in the city. 

One of my favorite parts of the trip was NBC studios. A lady gave us free tickets to the NBC studio tour, which was a big plus for us, because we were in line to buy them when she gave them to us! My fav show of all time is Friday Night Lights. I love Coach Taylor and his wife Tammy, and who couldn't love Tim Riggins?!?!? They had a whole section of FNL swag in the NBC store, so funny! I didn't buy anything, but I did take a picture of some of the stuff! 

The week we were there, Will Ferrell was hosting SNL, and people lined up 3 days in advanced just for standby tickets, it was crazy seeing people camp out for it! Who knows if they even got in! We did get standby tickets for Jummy Fallon, but they didn't take any standby tickets the day we got them.

We did get to see Jermaine, the winner of the voice!!! He was walking to fast, so when he walked past us, all I got was this picture of the side of him! We went to China town, I wanted to do a little shopping, I bought a watch locket necklace and a cute knock off purse! :)

One of the coolest things that we saw was the 911 memorial, and the new freedom tower #1 and tower #2. The memorial was so cool, everyone should have a chance to see it. It put into reality somewhat what it was like that day, even though, I really can't even imagine what it was like. Seeing all the names of the people who were lost in the tragedy, it really was heartbreaking, and makes me so thankful for my family. 

We went on a little harbor cruise boat ride all through the Hudson river (right where the plane landed in the Hudson) and we rode by the statue of liberty on Ellis Island. We would have gone to the island, but the statue of liberty is under construction, so we decided not to. I love the statue of liberty!!!
I loved all of the bridges! I don't know which bridge this one is, but they were all beautiful! We wanted to walk the brooklyn bridge, but we never got a chance to.
Here is a view of the new towers being built. The tallest one on the left is the freedom tower. Beautiful!
Here is Mike and I in central park. This was the bridge that is in a lot of movies. Central park was beautiful, and such a peaceful place. We walked around a little bit, but then we just sat on a bench there for a little while. We got tired of walking so much! It is such a different lifestyle!

These next couple of pictures were from the top of the rock, and that is central park! I never realized how big central park was! 

These flags are outside the NBC studios, the ones you see on the today show! When we toured the studios, we actually got to go in studio 1A where they film the today show! Studio 1A is the only studio that has a window in it that they film from. All the other windows you see on the other shows are all fake. :) I was the only one on our tour that new the studio number. I told them I watch too much Kathy Lee and Hoda! lol
Thank you Stephanie for showing us around the city! We had a great time!!

It sure was a great seeing this sweet girl greet me with a flower!!! 
You can't go to NYC without buying matching family tshirts. Mike got a grey one! 
I love this sweet girl, she is growing up so fast! 

"But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him.
His salvation extends to the children’s children"

Welcome to New York City!

I am so excited about writing this post about our trip to New York City last week!!! We had the best time, and we could have stayed for another week and been busy the whole time! This was our first time in the city for Mike and I. When we first got there, we were in traffic{of course for about 45 minutes}, and headed straight to times square! Our hotel was right in Manhattan, so only about 10 blocks from Times Square. It was amazing, I loved the busyness of it, and especially all big screens everywhere. We walked EVERYWHERE, which made us exhausted, so a couple of days we came back to our hotel and napped in the afternoon! Here is me in times square the first time walking through it! 

I apologize for all the photos, I just have to take a lot of pictures for me to remember everything I saw! ;) 
Seriously, there is a starbucks on every corner. In Charleston, where we live there are about 7 starbucks total. And none of them are conveniently close to my house. We enjoyed quite a few stops there. :) 
Mike and I at "Top of the Rock" Rockefeller center- what a beautiful view! 

My "bestie from birth" Stephanie, lives in NYC, and it was so fun meeting up with her a few days!!! We had a lot of fun seeing her, and she showed us all around NYC. This is us in SOHO, and we went to little Italy that night and ate at Lombardi's! yummy New York Pizza! 

Times Square: my favorite place! I love all the stores there, and it was so fun just to people watch! They have bleachers set up in times square for that purpose, and we just sat for a while just watching everything. Oh, and I haven't mentioned about the 4 story forever 21!!! It was amazing! Mike and I both got something, and it was so fun to shop underground, because all the stores go down, definitely interesting! 

This next picture was from top of the empire state building, you can see how bright times square is at night! unbelievable!!!

One of the coolest things that we did while in NY was seeing spiderman on broadway! We we went the tickets booth in times square the morning of the shows, and they give them to you for 30, 40, or 50% off. The spiderman tickets were 40% off, so we did good! The show was amazing, and I would recommend it to anyone! {I'm a huge Peter Parker fan}. I wanted to take pictures during the show, but of course, it wasn't allowed, and I tried to sneak one and Mike said, "Don't even think about it!" haha. 
Later that night we met up with Stephanie and went to the FAO Schwartz toy store and played the big piano. Then we hit up this amazing place called Dylan's Candy bar, and had milkshakes. They were so good, and the place was so fun! If I had a candy store, it would totally look like that. They had these giant  cupcakes you could sit in!! 

Waiting for the subway with Stephanie! I liked riding the subway in NYC, but I was so confused with all the tracks & the letters! Good thing, I was with Mike because he had the app on his phone of all the train maps! 

Part two of our trip coming soon!!!
