At long last, I finally feel comfortable sharing our news...

We are expecting #2!!!

After infertility treatments and a bit of an ordeal, we wanted to lay low until the end of the first trimester before sharing the news.

I will be 11 wks on Monday, and had my 3rd ultrasound today. Baby is looking GREAT and was moving so much the pix don't clearly show (ha!) the appendages since he/she wouldn't sit still!! :) Frame of reference, in the pix, the head is to the left, looking down, and the little arms are right off the head, at shoulder level. Legs on the right hand side, kind of pointing down... Like I said, he (feel compelled to call it a "he"?) was rolling all around, so we didn't get any cute profile pix ~ I'll TAKE action shots, though!! :)


"st" --> "sp"!!!

I have gotten used to (and love), the "B-isms"....

sprinkler heads = stinkabuh heads

spoon = stoom

special = stecial

trash truck = twash twuck

rabbit = wabbit

You get the idea...

Blends & diagraphs are tough for him, but that's normal developmentally, so we just enjoy the "little man" in him since he's growing so quickly.

THEN, in the last 48 hours, I've noticed...

"Momma, my SPoon is COLD!"

"Mommy, what's SPecial?"

My little boy is growing up!!!!!!!

...And We're Back!!!!

We are getting back in the swing of things after an exhausting but fun two weeks back East!! We started with a few days w/ Scott's side of the family & went to Ocean City for a few days of fun in the sun:

The beach was DEFINITELY a bigger hit THIS year than last since he was big enough to jump through waves, play in the sand w/ his cousins, etc. Fun times!!

After that we were in PA w/ my side, for several amazing days up in the woods at the family cabin. I will post pix when I get them (didn't pack a camera as I was flying back alone w/ him!), but there was lots of frog/lizard catching, finger-painting and fun in the woods!!

Thanks to ALL the family for hosting & entertaining us!!

When I put him down for his nap today, I locked myself in the office to get work done...and overheard him happily chatting. Then the tone changed, and I heard:

"MOMMMMM!!! QUICK!!!!! GET SUNWIGHT (Sunlight, his beloved duck) MOM. MOM! QUICK!"

I darted around the house, trying to recall where we'd last had a discussion about Sunlight before our errands/park outing this a.m. Checked the kitchen table, no luck.


"MOM!!! QUICK! I NEED SUNWIGHT! PWWWWWEEEEEAAASSSSSEEEEE!!!!!!" (that's please in b speak)

Through the door, I respond: "I can't find him. Do you know where he is?"

B (whining): "On the kitchen table. Pwwwwease! I need him!"

(run around again. duck is NOT on the table for the 4th time)


Finally, the little duck was rescued from the couch, put into B's hands....

....and then he needed his "nuk" (mind you, he rarely, IF EVER, used one when he was little little)...

so we rescued his Nemo nuk & he was off to dreamy land.
