Sneak Peek!

Last Thursday I finally had some professional pictures of Charlie taken by Heather Swanner. I have been wanting to do them for a long while but it just never seemed to work out so I finally made an appointment back in January to have his pictures taken just after he turned 2! If you would like a sneak peek you can check out her blog at http://www.heatherswannerphotography.com/blog/. I am so thrilled with how they turned out and can't wait to see the rest, the only problem is I might have a very hard time picking the ones I want!

Charlie is 2!

So I know this is a bit delayed but things have been busy and I am so tired at night I can't even think of pulling my thought together enough to post on the blog!

As everyone may know our little guy turned 2 on May 14 and we celebrated this wonderful day with a party on May 15, the theme this year was "Dump Trucks". We had friends and family over to celebrate with cake, snacks and water fun in the back yard! The cake was absolutely amazing and I am so thankful to my mother-in-law for taking care of it for me! My mom of course was in charge of his outfit for the even, well at least most of it, she smocked and insert for a t-shirt with dump trucks on it and I was in charge of making the shorts. Sadly I do not have any pictures of him in his outfit because after getting dressed he promptly fell into the kiddie pool and was drenched so we quickly changed into his bathing suit.

I think the party was a hit Charlie had fun playing with his friends and the adults were able to have great conversation while the kids entertained themselves. Happy Birthday to my Big Boy he is no longer a baby anymore!

Last Thursday he went to see Dr. Joe for his check up and he is growing great and doing all the things a two year old little boy should do. He is weighing in at 27lbs and is 35 1/2 inches tall, this is a far cry from where he was last year, he gained a little over 10 lbs this year! He was more aware of the fact that he was at the doctor this time and was not to happy with it but he will survive. At this appointment we were also able to remove one of the tubes but the second one was a little more stubborn and we had a very unhappy little boy so we decided to just leave it and would check later to see if it was still in there or had fallen out on its own. I still can't believe it has been two years since this little guy came into our lives and changed us forever and we are so very excited to continue to watch him grow and see how he will adjust to his biggest role yet as Big Brother!

December 12, 2010!

Yesterday Josh and I headed to visit Dr. Stone for our first appointment and our first glimpse at Itty Bitty. Before we even met with Dr. S we had and ultrasound and got to see Itty Bitty, I was so happy to finally be able to see that little flicker on the screen and be reassured that there indeed was a new life growing inside my belly. The U/S tech measured the baby and showed that based on size I was 8 weeks 1 day and that moved my due date to 12/12/10. We then met with Dr. S who was very excited for us, we had the normal first appointment talk about how thing would work from here on out as far as appointments go. We also discussed induction and he said we would most likely do the same thing as last time and the baby would be likely a week early unless of course Itty Bitty has other plans. I go back in 4 weeks and will get to hear that wonderful heartbeat again, which is the best thing in the world.

Josh, Charlie and I are still ecstatic and can't wait to find out who we will be welcoming to our family in December, will it be Pink or Blue? I guess we will have to wait for at least another 10 weeks before we find that out though, either way we will be thrilled!
