So it’s been literally months since my last post. Yes, I’m aware.
We’ve been incredibly busy, but I just thought I’d throw up a quick post while Bryan is running to the video store to pick us up a date night movie. Here goes…
Since my last post we’ve had several big things happen in our lives.
First off, we announced in March that we’re expecting baby #2 in October. So that’s sort of a big deal, I guess.
Then May 18th we found out ITS A BOY! We’re pretty excited and I’ve been celebrating by going to garage sales and picking up tons of super cute baby boy stuff at really good prices. I really wish someone would have told me about getting baby stuff at garage sales before Addie was born. That seriously could have saved us like millions of dollars. And really, garage sales are so much more fun than running to Kohl’s trying to catch a sale price and actually have a coupon in hand that is still good. Yes, I’m that cheap.
So far the pregnancy has been pretty uneventful. Bryan and I actually both guessed he was a boy ahead of time because it has been so much different. I was a lot sicker in the beginning and for a lot longer, but I have not been tired at all. With Addie, I remember coming home from work and going straight to bed because I was so worn out. Thank goodness that happened when I didn’t have a toddler at home because I have no idea how I would have taken care of her and kept up on anything feeling like that now.
Bryan also bought into the medical practice this Spring. I can’t actually remember really when that was, but it happened. He’s still working the same schedule and has the same responsibilities. The only difference is that he’s 1/5th owner of the practice. I’m sure no one that works at the clinic actually even knows. It’s all the behind the scenes stuff you never think about. We’re excited about it though, because it means we’re in this town for the long haul, which we’re both very excited about.
Not a “big” thing, but a whole bunch of little changes have happened with Addie in the past few months. We still think it’s a big deal though. First thing’s first, all of the sudden she started talking. It was pretty much over the course of a week in March that she started spouting off words we had no idea she could say. And really, we’d known for a while that she understood what we were saying, because she would complete tasks as directed, but she still was just barely talking. Somehow between March and now, she’s speaking in full sentences.
Her first honey, did you just hear that? moment happened over dinner at Monical’s pizza in May. Addie said, “Here you go Daddy, it’s for you.” We were both beside ourselves. Since then she’s been spouting out random phrases and sentences, which we think is pretty fun.
Our second honey, did you just hear that? moment was two weeks ago at Family Video. We’d been working on letters at home and Addie had been watching the Leap Frog Letter Factory video more often than I’d ever admit on here. Bryan was holding Addie and I was picking out the videos. She kept saying “K” to which Bryan was responding “Okay, what?” Finally he realized she was pointing to the letter “K” in the word “KIDS” on the wall. He quickly got my attention and then asked her the other letters. She was able to identify K, D, and S! Since then, she’s been identifying letters everywhere. So far she only can identify the numbers 3 and 6, but she’s counting out loud (while doing fist pumps, which is AWESOME) and is just pretty stinking cute all around. If it’s not months before my next post, I’ll try to get a video up of some of her letter stuff.
Alright, Bryan just got home with the movies, so I’m going to have to sign off here. Thanks for reading… I’ll try to post again soon. 🙂
