This is the story of our crazy little family.We do not claim to have it all worked out perfectly. We do not claim to be experts. What we do know is that everyday is a new adventure. Everyday there will be some tears, some laughter, some anger, some misunderstandings, some joy, some sorrow and a whole lot of happiness and love! That is how we know we are doing some things right!

The Topolewski Family
With both of our lives becoming so busy lately, we believed that this was a great way to keep in touch with family members that we do not get to see often as well as capture our memories.
There are many changes arising. One of which was the news of Lindsay being pregnant. We found out in February that we were expecting, and more recently found out that we were having a girl. We are very excited about our news and are quickly preparing ourselves for our new lifestyles that are about to emerge.
Right now I am about 28 weeks!! I have been feeling great thus far, and thankfully have not been sick yet. I have been trying to stay as active as possible throughout the pregnancy, for two reasons (1) to not gain a large amount of weight (2) so I do not get a "placenta" brain (as they say). It was pretty easy to do so during the first and second trimesters because I was teaching kindergarten classes all day. Those young ones can keep you busy. But now that it is summer time and with no teaching job prospects for next year yet, I have been focused on setting up the nursery as well as learning all important information about our new addition to the family.
Dave has been staying busy with his successful Coldstone stores. He enjoys working with the people there, especially Lindsay's sister and his best buddy Ray. With the summer in full swing it has been keeping him busy, yet he seems to still find time to enjoy playing golf with his buddies. (Better enjoy all this free time now..I am sure our little girl will keep him busy next spring)
We hope to keep updating this and posting pictures. Our daughter has already experienced a great deal of excitement while in her mommy's belly. Here are some photos of how our summer has been going thus far.
