Bye, Bye Blogger...

I have decided to branch out and try something new. I have been begging my very creative husband to help me with updating my blog because I have gotten a little board with the polka dots. After much discussion, aka, me driving him crazy! He came home with this new iweb, mac blogging thing that seems really cool. So check it out and let me know what you think. It was really easy to set up but I am wondering from the visitor stand point if it is easy to use. Click here to check it out!

Spring Fever

Wasn't it just the other day when we were all playing outside and enjoying the beautiful sunshine? Today we look outside and see snowcapped roofs across the neighborhood. It is freezing outside and I am trying to figure out how to explain to an 18 month old boy that just because we played outside yesterday doesn't mean that the weather is warm enough to go out today. Help!!!

6 - 18 Months

We are 6 months pregnant!

I went to the doctor today and everything looked great! I have gained 16 pounds... yikes!!! The babies heart rate was in the 140's and my tummy measured 26 weeks (I am about 25 1/2 weeks pregnant) so everything seems very normal. I told the doctor that I have had two dreams about this baby. The first was that it was a girl and she was 6 lbs. It was so easy to give birth to her that I ran out and bought pink pacys and bows and then went back to the hospital for recovery. More recently, I dreamed that it was a boy and he weighed in at a whopping 10lbs. 4 oz! I was so stunned by the sheer size of him when they handed him to me that I wasn't even shocked by the actual weight. So, your guess is as good as mine on what this baby will be. Corey and I are both leaning towards it being a boy because I seem to be carrying the exact same way as last time and everything else seems to be the same. Who knows?!

Will is 18 months old!

Will loves his new climber! We were looking for one for the summer and hoping to buy one second hand since they are so very expensive. So we did a little research online and found a family that was moving and had only had it for a year. As soon as Corey got it put together Will new just what to do. He ran to the stairs and climbed right up without any help and slid down the slide. After his first time he seemed a little more nervous about the slide and wanted help but besides that you would think he had been playing on it forever. It has room underneath for a sandbox so when it gets a little warmer we will have to add that for more fun. Corey told Will this was a really early birthday present but, I am thinking maybe a half birthday present? (Not that we want to start that tradition! : )) None the less, I am really hoping this will entertain Will during the summer for many hours so that I will have a little time to be with the new baby.
