New Header for 2010

So I LOVE redesigning my blog, as you can probably tell. I have had this blog thing for four months now and I have changed the background 3 times, maybe. Oh well, enjoy!

You'd think by the looks of the girlie background, that I have a baby GIRL growing in my belly, since I am not quite the girlie girl. But I do not. It is a boy for sure! We asked the ultrasound technician multiple times, just to make sure. :)


Here are some of my favorite photos from Christmas. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves immensely! Jack's new discoveries were the piano and slinky. Man, he just makes me smile!!!!!!!!!!!





My new blog background is from

First Hair Cut

We went to get Jack's very first hair cut today, finally! His hair was quite long. Now I know I am biased, but OH MY he looks SO HANDSOME! He also no longer looks like a baby. We now have an adorable 14 month old toddler.

Big News!!!

We are finally announcing our big news! We are expecting a baby boy (yes, another boy) due May 5, 2010. The boys will be 18 months apart. Jack is going to be the best big brother ever!


This is an ultrasound still shot from today. You can see baby boy #2's profile, with the top of his head on the right and his chest on the left.

Busy Week and Cookie Recipe

Last week was a busy week. Every Monday we have Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. Tuesdays are Physical Therapy and Aqua Therapy. Wednesday we bummed around and didn't leave the house. I love those days! Thursday Jack got measured for orthotics to assist him in standing and walking. It was zero degrees walking in to that appointment. Burrr! Later on Thursday we had Developmental Therapy. Friday we had a baby playdate with our new friends Nicole and Adi. Adi is super adorable and almost 6 months old. It really puts things into perspective, seeing a younger baby, at realizing how much Jack has grown in almost 14 months. Saturday we had to miss GiGi's Playhouse breakfast with Santa because Jack woke up with a nasty phlegmy cough. Saturday night, John had babysitting duty and I went to help wrap and decorate for the UPS for DownS holiday party. Sunday we went to that party and had fun seeing all of our friends. It was nice to get to introduce all the people I know to each other. Jack fell asleep in John's arms before we got a chance to meet Santa, but he did get Santa's nice Sesame Street sound book gift. Once we got home, I spent the rest of the day baking sugar cookies and icing them. Mental note: do not bake and decorate any more sugar cookies until I have kids that can help. That is way too time consuming. I was on my feet in the kitchen for 6 hours, I think! I baked the cookies as a gift for Jack's therapists...and also for us, of course! They turned out glossy and yummy! If it wouldn't have taken 6 hours, I would have decorated cuter, with sprinkles and such. But I will save that for when I have an assembly line of kiddos!

Note about recipes: Sugar Cookies - add 1/2 teaspoon more of vanilla and roll dough with powered sugar instead of flour Icing - add more milk until desired consistency

Jack, The Clapping Lion

video

I just came across this video from Halloween. Thought it was pretty cute showing Jack clap. I know it's almost Christmas, but who can resist a cute clapping lion?
