Yes, baby #3 should be joining us sometime around mid September. We are very excited! I am just about 9 weeks although I look like I'm about 16 weeks! I am showing SO much sooner than I did with my other 2. I was trying to find the picture of my 23 weeks pregnant with Lauren to show you that I am literally the same size now...a bit depressing...but hey, what can you do?
So, it's either been a blizzard outside or freezing cold this winter so we haven't spent much time outside. During our warm up (before the snow melted) James got to play outside and enjoyed that a lot! We played out a lot over the weekend too, and I'm pretty sure Lauren is going to love the outdoors and much as James does! She threw a tantrum each time we brought her inside. This summer is going to be so much fun! Seriously! I can't wait!
We always said we didn't really care if James' kept his pacifier until he was 3. That's when his doctor said the limit is. So....you may be judging me right now...but we just got rid of them. This is a picture of him sending them away to the pacifier fairy. That night the fairy sent him exactly what he wanted in return (imagine that!) :) A big horse and some bathtub paints.It went much better than I had anticipated and had only one night of 3 solid hours of crying! Not bad...seeing that he's had that thing for 3 YEARS!!!!!
We're Growing Hair... Well at least Lauren is! Aren't' her little pigtails adorable! She HATES when I put them in or do anything with her hair. Very frustrating...how could I have a daughter that doesn't want her hair done?!?!!? Doesn't she look even bigger with them in?! I love them!
We're feeding our many animals....
We're Working on our Budget...
and Lauren is our helper! She sat on the ground for a solid 45 minutes one morning putting money in James' piggy bank. She loved it and I was fascinated with her fine motor skills being
able to get those coins in that tiny slot. When her coins were gone she would dump them out and start over again! She loves these kinds of activities and thankfully James only ripped the bank out of her hands twice before "sharing."
We're doing some spring cleaning...
