Ava's Room

Ava's room has finally transitioned over into it's toddler stage. She has her new twin bed set up and has been sleeping in it for the past two weeks. She does good once she falls asleep, but we usually have to put her in bed several times before that happens. She likes to get out of bed and play with her toys. The past week has been a little rough because she has had RSV and pharyngitis, but she's doing much better and is finally sleeping all night again! I'm not looking forward to the whole waking up every night in the middle of the night thing with the new baby. Ava also has a new shelving system to put all her toys in and it's working great. She is able to take them out and put them up all by herself. Well, she takes them out by herself. Putting them up takes some help from momma or daddy. We owe a big thanks to Andrea and Karl for giving us the idea for these shelves. Someday, they will have their own shelves for Kaden, and we know that they will all love them! Now that her room is done, I can start working on the baby's room.







This is the baby's room as of right now. We've got some work to do still.

33 Weeks

I'm 33 weeks pregnant with baby #2 now, which is about the same as I was at Stacey's wedding when I was pregnant with Ava. I decided to try on my bridesmaids dress to see if it fit me this time. Much to my surprise, it does! It may even fit a little bit better...it was pretty tight at the wedding. So, we've only got about 7 weeks to go more or less. The baby is due March 13, which is the first weekend of Spring Break. We are hoping he comes by then, because starting the last weekend of Spring Break and for the next few weeks, Micah is super busy with work. Oh well, I guess he'll get here when he gets here!

The first two pictures are when I was 33 weeks pregnant with Ava. The last two are 33 weeks this pregnancy.

Christmas

I've been doing really bad about blogging lately, but here are some pictures from Christmas. Micah and I both have been having camera difficulties since about Thanksgiving, so I don't have a whole lot of pictures. Here are a few from our many Christmas adventures!

Definitely A Boy

So, after our doctor had us confused for a few months concerning the baby's gender, we are now sure that it is a boy. We had a 3D sonogram done today and could definitely tell the baby is a boy. I have pictures to prove it, but I will refrain from posting those on the blog. Instead, here are a few of his face. Notice he is smiling in both...definitely taking after Micah already.
